    They're sitting around padding the post count so they can take the magic #30,000, all this other gif stuff is smoke to distract the Brianpores of the world

    I came across 8 Tom James suits today and 4 SCs. I passed. They were very nice but also $18 a pop for the suits and $12 for the SCs. All three btn. Not my taste but the fit was so close that I just wanted to take them all home, but the arms were seriously short, like 22" short. They were around a 37-38SS. If anyone is interested, and has T-Rex arms, I can probably head back and take a couple of snap photos.

    Went to a few local stores this weekend. Nothing big, just a Patagonia button-down and a llbean Norwegian sweater. Both in my size! Also found two new looking Orvis Harris tweed jackets both 42R. If anyone is interested in them i would be glad to go back and snap a few pics. The thrift store they are in is literally right down the street from where i live.

    Today was a GREAT day despite thrift stores I hit up producing absolutely nothing. While searching some other TJ Maxxs, I finally found a pair of sunglasses I've been lusting after forever. These RLPL:

    (The only thing that could have made it better is if they were tortoise and polarized, but I'm not going to quibble.)

    If they were your size, I would probably have scooped them up for you. They were around larger 46 - normal 48 in size - too big for you, but too small for a good trading buddy you and I both know! Anyway, glad to have left some good stuff behind for someone to pick up and enjoy.


    :lol:, not even close to your size - you are on my pickup radar though, so no worries there.

    Those might have worked...I'm all over the place depending on the cut. I have tried on a 44R in Oxxford and that was too small at Hunt Club a couple years ago. I should have checked to see if it had enough material to let it out.
