    I haven't thrifted much in the way of Armani lately - just the tie from GW and a scarf from EBAY.

    The jeans fit, though they are low-rise. XD :p I'll scan them if asked.

    Previous photo? You mean the one of me by the sea? I understand the tie was too short, but the shirt was plain white, worn with gray slacks. How is that unacceptable? The slacks were Ermenegildo Zegna, which I know to be SF-approved).

    Just got back from the Goodwill in West LA on Santa Monica Blvd. Someone with a size 40 jacket and good taste must have died. Lots of Swaine Adeney Brigg jackets, + more. If you're in LA and want to run out there, I gathered them all together somewhere near the middle. Took lots of pics. Here you go:

    DAMN IT! Does this pocket tag help clear anything up? It looks like a cross between 41 and A1

    I'd lean towards suit as well, I thrifted a non GF BB suit that looked similar, but maybe a little darker. In my mind (which is not saying much, to tell you the truth) as long as it isnt striped, go ahead and wear it as a SC if you want. Maybe changing out the buttons (kinda hard to tell exactly what color they are though in the photo though- the top and bottom look lighter than the 2 middle ones) would give it more of a SC looks as well- a lighter brown or tan, or horn or metal for example. Nice score!!

    But, of course, it's too big, so back it goes unless I can find the pants.

    DigMeNow, maybe? He found a cardigan at Macy's not long ago (I think - I'm not a stalker) and posted the pic on (I believe) this board (or, the 'Jeans with a Tie?' board).

    *wonders now if Dig is a furry, hence the confusion*

    I'll throw my hat on the side of suit, too. The tag isn't much help, imo, because it could still go either way, but the shoulders look pretty sturdy with padding.

    The lapels on those SAB's kind of suck. Wide and low gorge = no bueno

    Who made sportcoat for SAB? Chester Barrie?
