    I found navy Polo suit very similar, with the same quality features. Mine was from the mid-90s or so. Crazy thing was it still had the tag in the pocket, and MSRP was under $1000.

    I think Berluti has made Stefanobi shoes before. You made a good purchase, though. I don't think Stefanobi has low end models.

    Wow! Nice score. I have seen lots of blue label suits, but never one by Hickey. Is the internal tag one of the older ones, or the more recent kind?

    60s Pendletons. Perfect condition.Thankfully the one medium fits just like a small. The last one is more of a sport coat. For me, these are big finds.

    The backing color is in reality black, but shows up blue in the pic for some reason.

    Was it me? Wait. I didn't go to a thrift store this morning. I was at a junk yard.

    If that's you wearing that PRL, you need to reconsider what size you wear. The shoulders look pretty good (don't recall seeing you in other suits before) and I bet your tailor could do something about that "yanking".

    Is there an interior button?

    One reason for the yanking my friend. I need to go on your diet. I eat terribly, and my gains go up and up around the waist. I do weights, but little cardio. I think nothing of chowing down a large pizza and washing it down with a non diet 32OZ - 64OZ fountain drink.



    Very very sensible for bringing my name into this equation. Needless to say:

    DIBS ON THE BELVEST



    Thats the question mark. The tag is one of a bespoke tag, i.e. write your name down after the "mr ________________". The jacket is double vented, Ralph Lauren in 90's just did not do that style. I am almost thinking this is recent. I could be wrong though, but the double vents have thrown me off.



    Yep I know. I wish I was a shoe expert. From what I can tell, they are closer to Lobbs than Ferragamo's better lines of shoes - I am not talking about Ferragamo's lowish end which pops up at $300 retail after discounts.



    Yeah those shoes definitely are not low end. I have owned just about every end of shoes, from Hugo Boss all the way to Lobbs / Greens. These shoes are closer to the top end than they are to a mid range shoe like Ferragamo or Church. I am tempted to say as good as Vass, but Vass are so good. They seem to be somewhere around that region though.



    Thanks Brian ;)

    Not a thrift find, but somewhat relevant. So, I've been struggling to think of a way to store my ridiculous number of ties in a manner that gives me easy access to them, and I think I have a good (for me, at least) solution - it was my mom's idea.

    I know some may think it horribly tacky, but I kind of like it. It's a curtain rod, by the way.
