    That made me laugh. Looking at this makes me want to have a big shoe sale.

    Huge shout out to Koala-T. In Austin for the night so my wife can attend a work function and met up to thrift. Took me to some great places. Here is our haul.

    Bro - post pics of the whole suit, and "Zegna" label / tags on the inside of the jacket, and describe condition / any defects etc. It can be worth anywhere from nothing (if it has moth holes, excessive wear etc), to a lot (if current label / Couture) - gotta see Zegna tag(s) and know what shape it's in. That one picture only tells us the size, it's pinstriped, and that it's wool.

    How is the quality of Rag & Bone blazers? I've never encountered any, but I'm looking at one online. Fused or canvassed?

    That Zegna label is older - any with the Z inside a circle are several years old - someone else can probably narrow the date down better. Looks like pleated trousers but not sure - if so - also a bit dated - most folks go for flat-front these days. Made in Spain is a bit of a detraction - more desirable is made in Italy. That said, someone out there probably wants a Zegna pinstripe suit with pleated (?) trousers, but I don't think anyone here is going to do the homework for you - check eBay sold listings for same/similar suit with same era label.

    I ain't fricking going down there. I saw the raccoon earlier and it snarled at me.
