    Hit the thrift. Picked up...

    2 pairs of Land's End Canvas Pants
    1 Land's End Canvas Jacket, pretty cool with a corduroy collar
    2 Martin Gordon Linen SC's for Spring/Summer with working cuffs and such
    1 SC that I need help identifying

    I googled it and it said this SC was made by Isaia, but I am skeptic.

    Oh, and picked up these two orphaned Made in Italy BB suit jackets. Usually don't pick this stuff up but I really liked the pattern of both...

    If Corallorosso is made by Isaia I'm gonna be pissed. I've passed over at least three at Marshall's for real cheap in the past few months.

    ^^ It is. It was made for Nordstrom IIRC and was pretty pricey for them.

    ^^^ Check out Corallorosso on Ebay. Every piece on there says it's made by Isaia too. Plus the prices! Nice find!

    Sadly I think it'll be quite a while - the wife is keeping tabs on my spending since we're saving up for our Calif. trip in March and trip to Japan in October. A blasted 14 day rail pass in Tokyo is $500! :crazy:
    For everything that enters the closet, one thing needs to leave (ie: be sold)....

    I hit a few thrifts today and got a couple goodies.

    - Semi-recent (2002-2004ish) Zegna mainline 15 mil 15 charcoal windowpane suit. 46 R. No vent. 3 btn. Likely headed for the bay if no interest is expressed here. My brother bought the other two which were blue birdseye patterns from the Trofeo line. Also 3 btn, no vent. Same vintage & size.

    - Recent Zegna mainline khaki trousers. Made by Incotex. My size. Keepers.

    I passed on a recent Canali Propasta blue windowpane sportcoat and a recent greenish windowpane Samuelsohn sportcoat. Canali was non vented. Both were 46 R, I think the same owner as the Zegna suits.

    Despite all the garbage they've made, Dockers has put out some respectable stuff lately, including a collaboration with Steven Alan. They do have modern, slim and tapered fits now too.

    That can't be true. How much is a bottle of water there? You have to pay to breathe the air? A hotel must be a million dollars a night!!!
