    Pics!


    Awesome, it was a really nice piece, I just have hay too many coats/jackets. Yeah, I hope things pick up there. I saw that red chambray Woolrich earlier today. Cool details like the cat-eye buttons. Debated picking it up but I have a similar shirt already. Glad you found it. :cheers:


    They do indeed. :)

    And to think I was mildly upset to find an orphaned minimalist running shoe this evening...

    Good luck!

    Made just one thrift stop in LA and left with a bunch of recent ties—Purple Label, Brioni, and the like. Also a Brooks tuxedo in my size. Thanks everyone for the tips—it felt good to get a little taste of the action down here. :)

    Also saw tons of crazy sw&d on consignment, designers I've never seen in person before, and spent some time drooling at Margiela, Saint Laurent, and other shops I can't afford. Now back to the sartorial wasteland of Utah.

    Ahh, Utah... My mom keeps trying to lure me into visiting St George because everything is so cheap at the thrift stores...

    Some more ties, though these seem a bit dated but I picked them up anyway.

    First Sulka (x3), Luciano Barbera, BB

    More recent ties: PRL Italy, Tyrwhitt, and a Talbott Girdle? Seriously is that what this is? Had to pick it up cause it was on the tie rack and only $2 and Talbott stuff seems decent. cummerbund (thanks 1ofTCKs)

    Baby Alpaca Sweater

    Hugo Boss - Loro Piana NWOT Blazer (couple tiny pinholes on left arm, but picked up anyway)

    Ginormous Filson Safari Vest w/ Belt. There was an identical one as well, but w/o the belt so left it cause they are both recent made in china. Debating heading back to pick up the other, but the made in china thing has me thinking no.

    Dry clean what you buy or throw it in the dryer on medium-high for 30 minutes.

    IF I knew what to wear this with, I would so buy it (Assuming close to my size...) I really think a fit pic could influence my decision.

    BTW, I should have mentioned that I use the ibooks/iphoto to add details when there are more things I want to show but am already at the 12 photo limit. I can add a dozen details in the space of 2 photos. Don't need it most of the time, but in the case of this jacket, I wanted details on the buttons and all the tags.

    If there's a better way that I don't have to pay for more photo space, I'd switch.
