    From me not thinking thoroughly, the fabric looks too fine to be a SC ie. Super 180 blah blah. But who cares! Change the buttons and rock it with jeans and SWnD it out with swag! [​IMG] Keep it casual and it might work! When the weather cools off a bit, I'ma rock my Hulmet Lang orphan.
    Wait WHAT?! Woaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Anything Hermezzzzzzzzzzz is worthy of a brag!

    I didn't buy all of those True Religions. I'm not too upset up about it. I bought a lot of other stuff though. Available unless marked N/A.

    Shirts

    Turnbull & Asser - 15.5/39 - The creases on it look like it may have never been worn or washed. Collar stays still there.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    J.Press - 15/32 - Looks old but condition is great.
    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brother - 14.5 Slim Fit - Been looking for a well fitting white shirt for a long time. N/A
    [​IMG]


    Denim

    J.Crew Matchstick - N/A
    [​IMG]

    RRL - 31/31 - Made in the US but not selvedge. Fit is probably bootcut.
    [​IMG]

    Levi's Selvedge - 34/31 - These were probably a bad pick up but came out to $3. Someone should tell me what these are.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    It's like this on all four seams. Rolled up twice you can't tell though.

    Shoes

    Allen Edmonds Colton - 12D
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Royal Tweed 11D - Cheaney? Church? Great shape.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Royal Tweed - I'm assuming they're the same size as the other ones since I found them together. So Churches owns Cheaney?

    Other

    I have been looking for a Blue Jackets jersey for so long. Can't believe the one I finally find is a small. N/A

    Speaking of hockey. I don't know if there's a more perfect tie in the world for me. Animal and hockey themed. Any Bruins/Bobby Orr fans here?

    Not a thrift brag but a brag of my new neighborhood!

    Oh Hai, there, dears! So cute! While I was taking a pic, the one to the left pooped on someone's lawn. Love the foothills!

    The only thing that makes something unwearable is if you, the wearer, won't/can't wear it. Something in that shade, with a conservative suit-like cut will probably look like a suit jacket even when paired with odd trousers. But whether that actually matters to you is your call. I have a mid-grey Zegna jacket that is clearly an orphan, but which I pair with brown trousers, jeans and chinos all the time, and I think it looks just fine.

    Somewhat related to what I wrote above... I've seen no evidence of that although it could be true, but even still... you ain't in Europe, boyo. Could you really walk down the street in a jacket that 60/40 is made for women?

    Found this blazer this weekend along with another sport coat and ties. I will post photos of the other items later. The blazer fits perfect.

    Okay, to start off with, now that I've caught up with the past few days posts, I'm crazy jealous of all y'all muthaf*ckahs.

    Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. Is this Barney's New York jacket valuable to anyone? It's greyish brown. Wool, I believe (no fabric tag), made in USA, size L - which is too big for me. I'm having 2nd thoughts, but y'all let me know if it's a good find.

    Been a crap end to a crap thrift day (three stores, and the only thing I bought: gas), so I e-thrifted Jack Taylor, an Irish mini-series starring the Game of Thrones dude who is very accomplished at standing next to half-naked women and saying, Khaleesi! in various shades of incredulity. Jack Taylor. Recommended.

    The traditionalist viewpoint is, if you want to go out in public looking like that, it is your business. No offense. I don't understand Japanese goth wear, either. On a somewhat related note, I was stopped while in Goodwill today by a gentleman who had those ear disk thingies, big-ass ones, that had his lobes stretched to elephant proportions. His significant other had green hair. "Where did you get that bow tie?" he asked. "Uh, not sure, to be honest," I told him. "Might want to try eBay." "Cool," he said. "I really like bow ties. I''ve been looking for one." And so the Republican nose ring has met its match.
