    Picked up a nice charcoal gray solid Austin Reed 100% cashmere sportcoat. I like it, but it would take a fair bit of tailoring to make it work.

    Keep or flip?

    I'm pretty sure I bought a pair of deer skin wool lined gloves last year from Sierra trading post for reasonable dollars at mid season. Nothing special but fair starter gloves. I then promptly found a pair of peccary driving gloves. So I kept the deer skins as beaters or bad weather gloves.
    Hit me up if you can't find them and are around a 8.5 or 9 glove (iirc) and I can send you the deer skins for cheap.

    Yeah ima disagree on the charcoal sport coat. That be orphan my boy. Charcoal and sportcoat aren't really used in the same syntax, at least not solid charcoal. It's too dark and formal to go with just about any trouser other than a match, and for ties, well the options there are pretty limited too.

    So I say no. Ymmv.

    @Orgetorix I would have left it too. Not very cool, and not much meat on the bone at $40.

    Oh, dudes: need an assist.
    To all the guys who keep jars of thick pearl buttons stripped from unsalvageable Italian shirts, I need lots. Like 144. Or 12 shirts worth. I commissioned some quite thrifty shirts in India and they came back looking great but with shitty shitty buttons. I would like to replace them (probably myself one by one over a very long time. Because I'm cheap).
    Get at me bros. thanks in advance.
