    Found all these...

    • Corneliani OCB-tagged Small. Off white with black light blue stripes
    • Borrelli French Cuff tagged 15.3/4 / 40. Light blue with white/gray stripes. The top button hole needs to be resewn/reinforced.
    • Brioni linen not tagged. Light blue w/ green stripes. Only issue is the stitching is loose where the tag was.

    considering the eyeball says they are close in size and they were found at the same store my guess is same donor. This stuff doesn't show up very often here...especially in this condition. All available as these might have fit me in high school.

    So, this weekend was my mother's birthday party. Been working toward it for 6 months or so. Went off pretty well, and a family friend was invited that I had not seen in 7 or 8 years. Well, this friend is part owner of a craft brewery in Georgia. Their product is only sold in Georgia right now due to liquor laws and such however, he brought some product with him.

    I was amazed at the quality, being a non-beer drinker, and how much I enjoyed everything I tasted. @ReubenR
    @ATLjon and @TheNeedMachine Y'all should check them out if you have a chance.

    I'll defer to @Orgetorix but I believe this is the kind of vintage tux you're looking for. 1930s NRA Blue Eagle Label, unvented, 1 button, peak lapels, flat front pants.

    In LA? If so I passed on those Visvims a couple weeks ago. Liked the buckleback but don't like the highwater model. Cool to see that stuff, though!

    Man, you must live in the land of amazing discount stores or something. You've had some killer "new stuff" hauls.
