    Question for you guys. I bought a thrifted jacket from the B&S. It's a Chester Barrie 100% cashmere coat.

    Problem is, it's very musty smelling. Not moldy, just reeks of dust and wool.

    Would you recommend dry cleaning a cashmere SC? I've also heard that a vodka/water solution spray can get rid of the smell.

    Great Suit! But what's up with the pattern matching on the armholes and across the pockets? The rare times that I've come up with RLPL suits in thrift stores or charity shops, the pattern matching has been spot-on. I'm not hating, but I wonder what happened? -M-

    I think so, I just think when these were designed your jeans were supposed to be higher. Nice find, if it were a 40 I'd tell you that the fit was horrible and you should sell it to me cheap.


    I'm getting the impression that half of the people on this thread shoot pics in mom's bathroom, the other half have to steal space from their wives for closet finds.

    I guess I should "brag" something. tonight I stopped for a few minutes and found a pretty minty (although crushed!) Tilley hat. Fits a bit snug, but it claims to be my size (7 3/8 for any of you who routinely pass on classics because you don't think you'd find a buyer) so I'm assuming I can easily stretch it back to proper size. Been wanting one of these, so a pretty good $3.99!

    Quote: Interested in trading/selling the Tyrwhitt shirts or the cords?

    Also, what are the measurements of both of these?
