    Picked up a burgundy Mont Blanc ballpoint pen for $1.99 and a book on the history of the Purdey gunmakers family for $2.50 the other day. Other than that, nothing real exciting.

    You had very respectable finds, this being the highlight for me. Oh boy, how I wish they could fit 38Waist. Any let out room? No, I should know better, Incotex usually run small. Bummer :(

    Ha, I had the same immediate initial reaction, knowing that they simply wouldn't be long enough :-(. For all the decent SCs/suits I find, my pants dearth is borderline shameful.

    As someone new to thrifting and fashion, it would be helpful to have an article of things to look for when thrifting, other than just brands. i.e. side vents and surgeon cuffs on suits, certain fabrics and/or fabric contents, pleating, stitching. I have been reading through tons of this thread, and some of these things come up once in a while, but are not gone into detail. Does anyone know a good article which contains this information, or could someone write something up (I think it wouldn't only be helpful to me).

    On a related note. I just noticed that the suit I posted earlier (John Cooper) has fake surgeon cuffs! Does this mean it's not bespoke?

    Looks like wool. If you grab them, you have to grab a stove pipe hat - Bill the Butcher style.

    Info in my Megathread here http://www.styleforum.net/t/PantsMegathread [​IMG] but they feel like wool (no tag). Not the super 150 suit wool, but more of a nice textured wool (kinda like they look like they should feel imo in the pictures)

    That Alpacuna is sharp! I've been looking for a camel hair coat — not DB, and that's probably not in my size — but the ones I find have been eaten by moths or are nothing to speak of.
