    Living 150miles from any major city puts chances of finding Kiton,Isaia, etc. at slim to none. These recent pickups fit nicely in my wardrobe.

    I know how we can settle this. eBay auction!!!!!!

    eBay auction, nah, personally, it is a bad idea because of the fees. In this case, silence auction is much better choice! Whoever gives you the right price, they can be the owner of those fine fine suits!

    I bet it was worth driving now you found all of those items, right?

    I think you misunderstood. I live 150miles away from any major city(so bigtimer clothing is not here), but I have a few thrift stores near me. I usually stop at them while I have time to kill and I'm passing by anyway.
    All those items were found locally.

    Chico: Put a space in between your IMG tags so the pics don't all have to display on one line. Please.

    They seem to take up more space this way, but changed it.

    Today's find:

    Isaia Napoli suit; beautiful windowpane, great hand, probably my nicest find yet.
    Unfortunately, not my size - approx. size 42 (22.5" pit-to-pit).


    Measurements?

    If you do a space, rather than a hard return, it lets the browser decide how many to display one one line based on your screen size. Which means it takes up as little vertical room as possible without having to scroll sideways, which is annoying.

    voila:

    So sad that the Imageshack images in the old posts aren't working. Like losing 1000 words an image, I guess.

    You can right click > open in new tab.

    It sucks to have to do it for each image, but it works.

    Glad I started reading the thread before the imageshack change. I guess it will make it a little harder to convince noobs to go back and read the first 1000 pages of the thread as homework.

    Hit 3 stores today, picked up a few things. Pretty decent Oxxford sport coat, date on the tag says 1983. It was half off at Goodwill and in decent condition so I figured why not. Also picked up a decent Banana Republic dress shirt, Brooks Brothers suit (1818), 3 Brooks Brothers ties one of which is knit, and a J.Press tie.
