    Was there really not another button hole? How weird...it looks like a 2 button missing a button.

    Only one. With the big peaked lapels I thought it might be an odd dinner type suit or really old or both.

    Did find a real nice BB 346 glenplaid suitcoat in my size, reeked of mothballs, but could not find the pants. Don't think the glenplaid would work as a sportcoat.

    Ended up wearing an all-thrifted (save for undergarments) outfit today and decided to follow Dig's suggestion. Please feel free to skip if you don't care and I apologize for the crappy pics.

    First time doing anything like this, be gentle...

    Shirt - Turnbull & Asser (thrifted)

    O RLY? In the right color, I think it works well. Hmm.

    Also - difference between Glen Plaid and POW? (edit: nevermind, shoulda googled)

    Mainys haul must have been so epic it is taking him three days to photograph everything. :)

    My small take today....A couple of trad ties, an enormous Made in Finland wool blanket and some older white Gucci bit loafers. My inner Pat Boone wishes they fit better.

    Went into a store where I never score anything and got a pile of custom shirts that fit me perfectly. They have big tall Italian collars with snaps, but a few minutes with the seam ripper and the snaps were removed, and I'm cool with a big tall collar. Spotted one with Flusser-style horizontal stripes first, then noticed the big MOP buttons. Figured I might as well try them on, and they fit. A nice Lorenzini was with them, as well. All fit like a glove. Some great basic shirts in styles I needed.

    Also want to give a shout out to Noobizor, who sold me a shirt that had some damage he missed and immediately (without my asking) offered a refund, and Typhoid Jones, with whom I had a great mutually beneficial trade. Swapped him a T&A shirt I grabbed when we were shooting our thrifting episode of PTO in New York for a nice plain white shirt in my size.

    Let me know if you decide to sell those pants. 36 waist / unhemmed?

    Picked up this 3 Pc Suit this weekend. My research turned up nothing on the maker. Any clue why I'm getting so many watchers on the listing?

    I was only able to hit one store last week, but I still found a few things.

    Tweed Aquascutum overcoat, with gun-patch on the shoulder, only a little big for me, so I might convince myself to keep it. 40 Long

    And a seemingly brand-new double breasted Samuelsohn suit, 42 Long

    Been meaning to tell you, I really dig your photos in the dining room. They seem to give the suits an elegant and inviting feel.
