    Bought this current Hickey Freeman Madison suit last night for $76:

    Good deal? Seems to be flawless based on the pictures and should be a perfect fit base on the measurements.

    Nope, 6'1. It's a 44L. I think the seller clipped it back on the mannequin so that may be throwing off the proportions a bit.

    Assuming that the measurements are accurate, it should fit me just fine.

    I'll post again when it arrives.

    This could just be an amazing buy, depending on the fit.

    Was it in Dallas? I think Chris showed me that jacket as part of a demonstration on the difference between his peak and notch. It's a beaut. Finally, after six months... [​IMG] Gaziano and Girling Deco Collcutts.

    I dont think that HF currently makes a Madison model outside of special order. At least thats what the Saks guy said...

    They sell them on their website: http://www.hickeyfreeman.com/mens-suits/navy-hairline-stripe-suit-madison-model/ (not saying this is the exact suit, but just that they still make madison models). Same fabric too: 100% Pure Worsted Wool - Super 130s

    Stopped in my local consignment store to kill a bit of time on my way to the liquor store to pick up the BTAC bourbon. Wound up grabbing a pair of cognac/chestnut brown captoes by Stuart's Choice. Need a good polish, but otherwise in great shape. Anyone know who made them? Grenson? EG? Only last notation above the size is "8001.17". Pics to come soon, hopefully, but they're gorgeous. In your size too, Spoo. ;)

    Also found a haul of Hermes slacks, worn once, for $98 each. They fit perfectly; even the hem needs no alteration. Picked up a brown pair, left several others including some beautiful corduroys. Hopefully they'll get marked down a bit more so I can swoop in on the rest, but damn. Nice stuff.

    I was out $300 before I even made it to the liquor store. Cut down my bourbon purchasing a bit. :(

    Thank God there is no consignment shop like that around me, let alone near my liquor store. I'd be constantly fueling my vices.

    Yeah, I'm a big fan of that consignment store. They recently started getting NWT overstock from a high-end clothes dealer in Memphis as well, so now they're selling brand-new still-basted Zegna, Canali, Bill's Khaki's, and even some Brioni for pretty damn cheap.

    yes. i appreciate the acknowledgement. my standard has generally been a peaked lapel from chris. i am glad that he is going to a more natural shoulder w/o padding. his trousers are still the best! i think tony g will be in next month
