Nice work. Just in time for the cooler weather, too.
Soft shoulders with no padding as well. All for a hefty sum of $14
may I ask which thrift store you found it?
I'd tell you but id have to kill you! I also picked up a PAL ZILERI Su misura suit jacket in new condition that i want to find the pants for first.
I will tell you that I was very surprised to found it in this particular op shop
Tie: Isaia 7 fold
Shoes: Carmina saddle shell cordovan
Here a shot of the saddle shell in the sunlight:
Is that the Granoro model Benjamin? Any trouble with the collar height? I assume it's medium gray, which is great.
Yes, it's the Granoro and I've not had the collar trouble that some have reported. Fitted well right off the bat.
Just a close up today - then off to Brisbane for the weekend tomorrow!
Shirt: Pink Cottonwork
Tie: Henry Carter Neckwear green dot
Scarf: Henry Carter Neckwear Purple Cashmere
Looks great. I'm under the impression that my shoulder stance doesn't quite match up with the cut, but I raised mine as much as possible as it's manageable.
G. Nelly, what size Benjamin you wear?
B Manny, I wear 38R.
My theory on the Bennies out the window then...
I have some fit issues with those. I have the Lucente in 36R. Barely touch it. I get lapel gap as well as height issues plus the shoulders sit very square.
The Herringbone sale started today - suits are priced at $699 but not sure of the rest. I was in there picking up a suit I'd had in for alterations and they were just putting up the prices. No crowd at all right now.
The altered suit fits so nicely that I kept it on and took away my original suit in a bag
