    Couple of stores today, no pickups. Did see some unusual stuff, rare for my area:

    emanuel ungaro ties, two of them, 100% wool, both made in Italy - was tempted, but eh.
    Altea tie - nice enough, but eh, nobody's interested in them and it wasn't one I'd wear myself.
    Heartbreaking: Made in England Aquascutum cashmere overcoat with too many spots where moths had nipped at the nap of the fabric. If it had been my size I might have considered it as a beater for crappy weather. :brick:

    Actually I misspoke - one was wool. It was pretty much solid oatmeal color. The other one was silk and had a blueish pattern with some other colors in a repeating pattern of some sort.

    Dear Nataku:

    How you doing? Did I mention that I am a 46R?

    Sincerely,
    Ace


    Seriously, PM me the measurements. Just got a Zegna jacket from Xenos earlier this week that I am digging.

    After a disappointing stop of a pair of an Allen Edmonds calf belt that was 1 size too small and 2 cashmere sweaters that were my size with holes in them, made a stop at a thrift that never has good stuff/usually priced high and found a super heavy Filson wool sweater size M. Not sure about keeping it yet but might come in handy for the winter.

    Believe me, the staff has absolutely, positively no idea what the "good stuff" is--at best, they'd let me know when four pairs of Dockers in the same size arrive. And there are no volunteers working in the thrifts I frequent. It's a business, and a terribly run one, at that. I'm there every day. I know.

    Flat front zanella sell pretty well in staple colours. Especially if the inseam is 32 or longer. eBay seems to be full of pants for fat short people :plain:
