    Save yourself some time, money, and the heartache of bagginess....

    (Not too many colors at the moment, unless you want to try a thin corduroy (I would) -- but they change things up pretty frequently)

    Don't know how you feel about Uniqlo, but I got a subtle purple OCBD from them that's pretty nice, and totally affordable.

    Todays finds. Versace V2 Houndstooth Sports Coat (single button dual vent) and a Ben Silver Blazer with gold toned buttons. I really, REALLY like this Ben Silver blazer but it doesn't fit =(. Pics of those will come soon. Sorry more shitty camera pics but I get my camera back next weekend.

    Other things that probably don't interest anyone is a Southwick Tweed and a Samuelsohn Silk/Wool likely-orphan-but-will-attempt-to-pass-it-off-as-a-sports-coat, sports coat

    Edit here we are

    Hmm, odd. It says made by Benson & Clegg on the label, but that's the Samuelsohn tag. Maybe the buttons are B&C?

    Personally I'd pass, but meh. That stain looks unpleasant and the jacket looks dated with those enormous lapels.

    Unless you're going to reinforce those lapels with kevlar and become some sort of sartorial Batman, I say nay.
