    Klobber, tell your brother to get at me regarding that TF and most certainly the Hermes. :)

    That's amazing. You might need to make some trips north during the winter just for the chance to wear it.

    Well, if you ever decide to get rid of it, you know who to call. It does get mighty cold up here in the windy city. :D

    It's good. It's a government/company town so you find a lot of stuff that govt workers wear to blend in. Brooks Bros, HSMs, John W. Nordstrom stufff along with the usual Nautica, C Klein dress shirts that are all around the country. Nothing flashy that you would find in NYC or even Philly. With the rise in the contractor class, I've seen a lot of dress casual stuff like Banana Republic and the like that is showing up in the thrifts. If you apply yourself, you can pull out the occasional canali and corneliani that some well heeled lawyer donated.

    Not to be a buzzkill, but Boston is a pretty tough town for thrifting... lots of competition other than Mr. Jones

    Holy Ivy, Batman. A coat like that should prompt a move north. Pay no attention to what DM7 found--that's the find of the month in my admittedly narrow-view world. Props for not selling it.

    Well, not me... the fact that you don't ship outside the U.S. might be bad for my size 34 legs, but it's good for my size way-too-small wallet.

    I love the idea of someone being able to flawlessly spell 'primitive,' but not 'should.'

    Actually, I vote option A, sell one of your cast-aside blazers, hopefully for something close to $40, then go back and get item c.

    How to stretch the same money further. :fistbump:

    This coat is the effing dopeness. I would hope for cold winters just so I could wear it more. So beautiful.

    Question for all the gents on here. What does one wear with black watch tartan plaid pants? I'm thinking a navy blazer with gold buttons and a crisp white ocbd. Any thoughts would be helpful. :D
