    Yes, I will be selling it -- and for a significant discount on what it would fetch on eBay. I got it at a Goodwill

    Anybody finds a (or more) tweed vest - Harris, Donegal and other isles preferred of course - that would fit to my 43 inch chest please proxy for me. Someone is selling on BS for $$ and I liked it a lot but it's too small and of course I am by nature too cheap for that (since I am also lazy and time poor to do eBay).

    Actually it would fit me perfectly, but I can't buy EVERYTHING I want

    Quick lunch run. Sorry for the shit car backseat pictures, but it's pouring out and there was no way I was gonna try to do this in the rain.

    Zegna shirt

    Freshly dry cleaned. Little bit of collar yellowing that should come out with an Oxy treatment, otherwise excellent.



    BB tie, old school Rooster knit tie

    I know no one cares about the Rooster, but I love knits and this one is well made and a very attractive color IMO.



    BEEN HAD casual jacket, in my size. Overpaid for this one ($20), but I've been looking for something like this for a long time, so well worth it to me.

    A couple quick pics of the Brioni Tux from yesterday.

    Also passed on a Versace 100% Linen Tuxedo in a thrift. I wanted this thing badly, but it was in pretty poor condition and for $40 wasn't worth it.

    Does anyone remember the discussion a while back regarding people having their tailors sew designer labels into their MTM suits? Well, I came across such an animal recently:



    I don't need Spoo to authenticate this one.....since this was also sewn into the jacket on the other side :facepalm::

    [​IMG]. That Brioni tux is pure sex. Thank god it's not my size so I don't have to try to convince myself that I can drive a tuxedo to work, so it would be alright to sell my car to buy this.

    Chester Barrie db suit 39R. Too big for me. Looks to be in good condition but I haven't done a thorough examination yet.

    Let me know if there is any interest out there....

    Thanks AHS

    ^^^I see your Chester Barrie, and raise you 2 Tom James SCs and 2 Tom James Suits. More photos to follow.

    First, can anyone help me date this one? No other store tag other than the Made in England 100% Wool Tag inside the pocket.

    All of the photos you mentioned must be included, and they must also be notarized.


    Yeah, don't you remember when Dig thrifted himself that badass Oxxford fursuit? One hundred percent cashmere, no tailoring required - it was incredible.
