    Hahahaha, thats hilarious. As I was getting ready to post, I realized that I wrote 15 mil 15, when it should have been 15 milmil 15. I was going to change it but felt lazy and didn't. Lol. Great minds....

    Is this an inside joke? I don't get it.

    Never really thrifted CM. Always been a SWD kinda guy. After reading through this thread I'm trying my hand at CM stuff. Is a 100% Cashmere Zegna "Z Soft" SC a thing??

    Is a recent Paul Stuart suit for ~$35-40 with a water stain/mold below one pocket flippable? The suit is dark so it's difficult to see stained be on outside. Seems like dry cleaning would significantly eat into profits?

    With Winter coming a Zegna cashmere sport coat will be a thing. Zegna great, but Soft is not the best line. Is it a true sport coat and not a suit orphan? Normally we say "pics or it didnt happen"!

    Are nailhead jackets, particularly solid ones, always parts of a suit, or do they make solid nailhead sport coats?

    Woah, WTF? I didn't notice that. I was just looking at how the titles for our respective suits were exactly the same. How did the pic thing happen? Thrift-telepathy?
