I have angered the thrift gods. Two stops. One shoe.




One lonely, orphaned Alden. And I never find Alden.

Exactly.  With the milium insulation throughout.  Very heavy, but looks like it drapes nicely.

Thinner lapels, and the harris tweed tag looks older with a different color variation, and made for Alexandre in england, made in england.

Wish it fit, looks like a very warm piece.

 

Any extra light to shed on the piece?

Nothing more really - you got the gist of it.  I've only had one, wore it most of an autumn then dry cleaned and sold it...don't remember at all what I got for it.  And it was somewhat old (vintage), if I had to guess maybe 60's +/-.  One on eBay now asking $190 (which is not an indication of what it might sell for...just what someone wants for it).

I asked. It was the SVDP on Colerain. Tiny store, and unlikely that the other shoe is there. They had a pile of orphan shoes. I doubt I'll be able to find the mate amongst the other local SVDPs. Who knows, maybe it was destroyed by a dog.

Breaks the heart. On the plus side, I did find a very nice red Sulka tie at the GW down the street from my house.

But I'll probably at least hem a bit of the length because they really are too long.

 

I don't know about proper cuffing techniques, but my guess is you just got pants that are too long for your size and/or aesthetic preference. Have you soaked them yet, though? They could lose some length after a hot soak.

Never been to that store, but I imagine I'll be hitting it up occasionally soon as I'll be student teaching at the high school over there next semester.
