    Went to a couple of stores today and didn't pick up anything besides an Elmer Fudd hunting hat, but saw a collection of sportcoat that I thought you guys would get a laugh out of.

    I think they were all from the same donor. The ones that had tags inside were tagged 40R., though a couple seemed smaller and a couple were bigger.

    Can anyone ID this Borrelli shirt? I've never seen one with this label before.

    I've had a single gig up till a couple months ago, but that was a 45-1hr drive each way every day, for a company that was bought out, and during their reorganization moved the people that had been there for ~1yr or longer either up, or out due to new training practices. In the last bit I've had a couple of what I thought, and was lead to believe were pretty solid offers, but wound up vaporizing, with no reasons given as to why.

    But I agree, I would really love to have some stability, and start working toward a career.

    Unfortunately Im an Extra Short in jacket, so unless for some reason it's in the 27-28"BOC range, I dun believe it will work.

    Have never seen this label and my Borrelli buttons all have crows foot stitching (and are round for that matter). My experience is limited though.

    Sure, I can proxy if you want something. I can run out there tomorrow, or even tonight possibly. Correct, the blackwatch is a suit. Keep in mind that I didn't bring a tape measure with me, so if you want something and some quick measurements and you want me to proxy for you, PM me your phone so I can text you measurements if I have to go back.

    May be a dumb question, but is a 3pc a good buy at ~10$ if no brand, or 70's dept store brand for flips?
