    Thrift store in this area charges astronomical prices. Got this at half off. Zegna silk windowpan suit., no size tag, fits like a 44R.

    Pick for me, not that I would normally pick up Jack Victor but this suit is Bamboo and feels ohh so good, cashmere like. Haven't seen much Bamboo threads is this a thing?

    I think the Oxxfords an orphan in case gettin the pants maybe an option...and yea bamboo is ridiculously nice and I think what hurts it's resale or why it isn't as popular is because it's usually tagged as "rayon from bamboo" which doesn't make sense since rayon is synthetic cotton and the fabric is bamboo so I dunno, but the fabric feels amazing. I have a couple Pal Zileri Sartoriale jackets made of it and I think the rayon keyword is hurting the resale and have no idea why it's there.

    If you found any of the Masters Smathers and Branson gear or vintage Masters hats I'd repay in favors of the sensual kind

    Picked up a salmon colored canali SC a while back,
    Mint condition, rayon from bamboo.
    Couldn't give that thing away. Felt like freakin cashmere. Amazing coat. Sold 9.99 at auction to a flipper a county over from me, found it again at goodwill two months later

    The JV actually only calls out Viscose from Bamboo. Nonetheless you are right this is super swag, as noted earlier JV doesn't catch my attention but the feel on this was money and in my size.
