    Definitely far and away the nicest pair of casual pants I have ever tried on. One size smaller and I would seriously consider having to keep these.

    Today, I got a navy two-button Ermenegildo Zegna jacket, an Orvis houndstooth jacket, an unstructured silk/linen/wool jacket, and a pair of Orvis tan suede chukka boots that look like they've been worn maybe a couple times (there's a small smudge on one toe and the soles are darkened from walking outside, but that's it; they're available to anyone who takes a size 10).

    Also: A light blue long-sleeved polo-collar cashmere sweater, a yellow Izod Lacoste sweater (Lacoste is available, undecided on the other), a couple of pairs of $3 Gap/BR chinos to bum around in, and a Polo dressing gown in blackwatch tartan, new with tags. It's a men's small, so it ought to work as a present to my girlfriend so she has something nice and comfy to lounge around in at my house.

    Passed up: A couple of interesting jackets, including one peak-lapelled light-grey thing with surgeon's cuffs that was apparently custom-made in Hong Kong; some trousers of questionable provenance, some Polo trousers whose color I couldn't discern as I am not too hot with the color-recognition thing, and some Polo chinos that made my ass look like it should be advertising tires; and a pair of AE tassel loafers in my size (the leather was sorta beat up and they have tassels, and neither quality appeals to me very much).

    Oh, and there was one pair of dark-blue pants that, when I looked inside for labels, revealed a nice, healthy skid mark. I almost ralphed.

    made by Hugo Boss. I also found a pair of woolen trousers made by PS by Paul Smith. Both were too big for me, I can't remember the size of the sport jacket, the trousers were 34". To find sport coats sized 36 R/S and trousers 30" are hard, imagine how hard it is to try to find quality clothing in those sizes then.

    I am leaving for London tomorrow and will be there until Sunday, would any kind soul be able to tell me if there is any good thrifting spots in London? I would be forever thankful.

    I've actually seen a couple made in Hong Kong jackets recently. I've seen them mentioned of late, and I don't know if it's I'm paying attention or what, but I've only seem maybe one or two previously.

    My wife just got back from London this weekend and she went to a few thrift stores there:

    OXFAM @ 5 Gloucester St. (Gloucester Tube Stop) - This is where she found a black top frame briefcase by Papworth Travel goods for £14 on a different business trip[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]. [/FONT][​IMG]
    OXFAM @ 23 Drury Lane (Covent Garden Tube Stop).
    Salvation Army @ 9 Princes St. (Oxford Circus Tube Stop) - This is where she found a black leather and ballistic nylon messenger bag by Bally also on a different business trip.
    British Red Cross @ 67 Old Church St. (Sloane Square Tube Stop).
