    Southern-style thrifting at my neighbors house this morning: One basket of heirloom tomatoes, one basket of squash, a bunch of okra, two cantaloupes, some rattlesnake pole beans, some banana and jalapeno peppers, and two jars of just-collected honey. [​IMG]

    Ha, my wife has a bunch of raised beds out back and planted some Okra as well as a bunch of other stuff. They exploded, and we have them come out of our ears. Then we realized we have no idea what to do with them, we tried frying them and they were so fibrous that they were inedible.

    Best part of living in the south, people around here are trying to give away produce.

    However, I'll see your produce and raise you 2 dozen fresh eggs my sister in law brought me last evening.

    I would kill for some local honey though, that stuff is expensive.

    Can anybody verify is these are legit? They look it to me! I wish they were one inch bigger around the waist, they're awesome.

    At a glance they look ok, from memory that black IT tag should be an authenticity label.

    I haven't seen a pair of those in years, my first designer jeans were a pair of Versace Jeans Couture in a solid blue, must have been '99 or so.

    Do you think I should grab this Coppley for my own use? Label says 38w32s, however that translates. Coppley is alwayd custom cut. Loro Piana 120s from Harry Rosen.

    I usually take a 40r jacket.

    If you wear suits why not? Coppley makes nice stuff and sounds like the material is pretty decent. Retail would have been over $1000. It's dual vented I think I can see in one of the photos, and the gorge is fine if you ask me so it doesn't look dated. If it's for a wedding type stiuation I probably wouldn't bother with the pinstripe. How do the shoulders fit? Hard to tell from the picture but might be a little big

    But if they don't fit, they aren't really worth much for resale looking on the bay. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong

    I was worried shoulders were small if anything because I don't understand the numbers on this particular tag.

    I'm thinking it fits though...with alterations.
