    Surely a measurement error. Happens when you measure from the shoulder seam like a jacket. Or tailored.

    +1 How do you know those weren't dry cleaned twice... ebay buyers will bite you in the butt for a comment like that. I use NWOT less then 1% as most of the stuff even if it looks perfect is not NWOT or "dry cleaned only once".

    On another note here are the Made in England Cole Haan's from my Cali trip. Marked 7D but fit closer to 8D as they are too big for my tiny feet. Thanks to the Heel Nail pattern thread, these are Cheaney's.

    Hit 6 GW's this weekend, with little luck.

    FYI - If you're in the market for Target's Mossimo & Merona cast-offs, they're there as far as the eye can see.

    I did kop some sweaters/pull-overs (BBGF, Saks, Pendleton (US Made)), shirts (Robert Talbott Bespoke x 2, Saks linen, Pendleton (US made), and wool ties x 8 (all no-name, some knit, but in interesting colors).

    Also, I got a Pendleton (US made) charcoal blazer with silver buttons that I'm going to need to replace because of the color and the fact that they're plastic-y fake metal. [​IMG]

    The last store I hit also had 15 pairs of Zanellas, most with few pleats ([​IMG]), but they were apparently Jackson Pollock originals because they were all splattered with paint! [​IMG]

    ^ GREAT reference. Best movie EVAR (with the exception of trading places and history of the world part 1)

    I have some standard grey PRL, 2 pleated trousers that I picked up from Klobber at shipping cost (thanks again Klobbs) that are too big for me, so I'll pass them along for the same actual shipping cost (so probably ~$7 or so total) . They measure 20.5" waist (41"), 32" inseam. My preference is for a regular poster in this thread. PM me if you want them.

    This post might be a little bit longer than normal, so I appreciate you indulging me the bandwith.

    First, today's finds. This weekend was my first finds in over a month. Like I said, bone dry lately.

    In any case, two pretty recent BB sport coats. Beautiful heavy-ish brown wool in check patterns. Not my size, but any 48Rs out there can holler my way if they are interested. I haven't measured them yet, but there were about 7 total BB's donated. These were the only two with any flip value, but the others were just as nice, just older. All clearly donated by the same guy. To wit:

    Note: These are both a bit darker IRL

    Dark brown w/ tan and maroon windowpane:

    Lighter brown POW check:

    Then, a glass tea cup, although it's been immediately repurposed for coffee. Nothing special at all, but I've been lusting after the nicer ones on Amazon, but I can wait for a holiday sale. Until then...

    [​IMG]

    Just to maintain my thrifty credentials, the couch in the background was from my grandmother before she passed away a few years ago. I used to fall asleep on that thing every Thanksgiving. Best couch on the planet Earth. The coffee table was free from my old gym teacher (long story short: Mom is a teacher at the elementary school I went to, albeit not at the same time).

    Second, and altogether different, last night was my law school's "law prom", better known to insiders as Barrister's Ball. I ended up leaving early out of boredom, and really it's not my scene. But it was fun to get dressed up and hang out with friends I don't see often enough anymore.

    In any case, the suit is a recently thrifted BB pinstripe, and the shirt is the US BB from the recent Nordstrom Rack sale. Unseen is the pocket square, which was also thrifted, a chinon/silk combo, and my black AE Hales, also from NR. I realize this is waaaaay out of my trad-leanings, but Barrister's is usually an excuse (or a chance, take your pick) to do it up FU style.

    The other thing around my arm is just eye candy :smarmy:

    Last year I was thrifting
    and I found a cashmere Brioni Sport Coat
    looking closer
    it was brand new and
    unfinished with
    all the buttons and thread
    and in my size

    Then I looked at the price tag
    which read
    $4.99


    and then I was happy

    Guys who have mannequins, do you "pin" the back of the shirts to look nice for photos or just let them hang? Can't wait to get some new photos with mine. Thanks acosbysweater!!

    Anyone interested in NWT Corneliani made Polo suits for $300? Saw them at Marshall's today. There's a solid navy three piece and a tan plaid two piece.

    Oh yeah, they were size 40R and 40L WUDUP.

    Edit: Sorry the navy is actually $350, the tan is $300
