    I'd sell. Cucinelli's cuts are generally quite trim and short. If you had the right size you'd see this. I've never heard of anyone complaining their size was too long in Cuci, usually it's a bit too short.

    I don't check this for one day, and I have 85 new posts to read. :lol:

    Lots of amazing finds over the last few days, everyone! And, although it's been said already, that BC is awesome.

    Today was a lot of tease with zero results, unfortunately. BB 1818 Madison cut with no pants (not the best stuff, but they have paid well for me in the past). Saw my first Chester Barrie (43R tag), but no pants. And that one really stings, too, because it was a 2B, double vented, solid navy with practically zero wear (a little around the breast pocket). I'll head back tomorrow to see if the pants are there. But each place I hit was actually pretty scarce on everything, so if they are out, they should be relatively easy to spot.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the difference between a solid blue blazer and a orphaned solid blue suit jacket is the missing brass buttons? I usually pick up solid gray and solid blue orphaned suit jackets as they make perfect sportcoats/blazers?

    Could be. JPress lists their blazers (which all have gold buttons, I believe) separately from their sportcoats.

    I was going to pick it up as an orphan, but the shoulder pads were a bit more prominent than I was comfortable with. It wouldn't fit me, so it would have been a flip. I'd happily stand corrected on that, though.

    Also went to TJ Maxx again to see if what I saw before was on clearance. It was, just not a deep enough discount. Considered a lot of this...[​IMG]

    Fell in love with this...

    And purchased this...

    Not sure I will be able to flip this but I liked this the minute I took it off the rack and I have been seeing a lot of the YSL versions around lately. Plus the Jack Spade one they had was signifcantly more and this is one of the softest I have ever come by.

    tben - What was the Gant priced at? There's a ton priced at $140 that I love, so I'm curious to see what they can be had for elsewhere.

    Found a Chester Barrie black and white houndstooth with light blue overcheck. Two button, double vented. Size 38/39. I can see why RLPL chose them as producers for so long. Bit too long, so it's available.
