    You can find some very decently priced cashmere lined Brooks Brothers leather gloves.

    What exactly makes a good tie? I mean, i've bought dozens of nice ones, mostly from brands I know to be excellent, but it seems like I run across so many that would still be decent buys at 1 or 2 dollars. Material feels good, made in italy tags, design isn't too tacky, etc.

    Def. not an orphan, which is the only reason I didn't leave it. This is very much a jacketing in terms of weight, and the cloth isn't totally solid – more of a heather, and I suppose some would call it dark gray rather than charcoal (certainly not "almost black"). Should have snapped a pic – it's a hair darker than this jacket I saw on tumblr:

    @barrelntrigger I've already found better. But I like this one.

    EDIT:

    Damn, found the exact thing on eBay. This is weird.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/AUSTIN-REED...240560?hash=item4af46b1db0:g:1K4AAOSwQTVWAOg9

    Anyway, I shouldn't have asked for advice because apparently I'm feeling obstreperous and not taking any of the advice given. Still don't know what exactly I'm gonna do. But whatever. Worst case scenario, I get it altered and decide I don't like it.

    Haha. That's my listing. I wore that jacket to a few winter events and recently put it up for sale since it fit just a little off and have others I wear more often. Def not a suit coat. If it doesn't sell this round, I'm going to finally get it tailored and wear it again.

    Man, then we're gonna have to start emailing each other to make sure we don't wear the same outfits on the same days.

    Glad you like them, still plenty of breaking in to do. The apocalypse is a small Thriftmas gift. and hopefully a mascot for your thrifting in 2016. [​IMG]
