    Best find I've had in a while. Amazingly these are my size, but will probably flip them.

    Geeeezy criminy, that's jaw-dropping-grail territory. I mean, we talk about Kiton or Attolini or stuff like that being a grail - but we honestly see Kiton SOMEWHERE in the thread on a regular basis, and Attolini pops up now and then... but G&G?! WTF?!

    dibs if suitable for 11Eish US size? :hide: Seriously considering selling bodily organs (or close to it - LOTS OF SHOES) if the size is right ^^;

    All the 44L guys are probably screaming at their screens for us to shut up and let the Klobster go ahead and flip it! :lol:

    I wouldn't wait for the PM. Just put them in the box now, write "SPOOPOKER" on the outside in black marker and give them to the UPS guy. He'll know where to send it, regardless of where you are.

    Liam, I'd be interested in how you know the coat/vest set is not an orphan. It sure looks like it came from a suit. However, it looks like it fits well. The lapels are making quite a statement and the front quarters are closed but I haven't seen a lot of 3 button coat w/vest combos so maybe that's how they are supposed to be styled. The NM tag inside doesn't hurt, either! Regardless, you are rocking the top half. Is the coat canvassed at all?

    The Haggar looks to be their top of the line and will serve you well but you won't get a lot of love for the brand on WAYWRN. The gorge looks a little low but that shouldn't be a problem IRL.

    Go forth and strut, brah!

    Thanks guys. I have to admit that this forum and this thread (you guys) are what helps to keep me on the straight and "ahem" narrow.

    I own a Haggar Imperial SC, too. I think it's well constructed, and I've had it for 5 years on top of however long the guy before me had it - no issues, sturdy as a rock. Dig is right, though, the gorge is typically pretty low. But I generally like the design: large/soft patch pockets, heavy buttons, a natural shoulder, and a fair amount of built-in waist suppression. I'll put it this way - you could have done a lot worse.

    Aside from the fact that gif is seriously weirding me out, :lurk:
