    Ummm, 44-46 isn't that big. I'm 6'1 and 205 lbs and am a 42-44 R.

    44R isn't that big, but 46L is quite a step up, especially on the looser fitting brands.

    its alot of fabric

    I leave them. From what I have found they aren't worth picking up.

    Nice Kiton pickup....blazer, yea not so much [​IMG] Although, I wish it as sized for a small man, (not a toddler).... Linen? double breasted peak lapel blue blazer....

    Also, just snagged this off ebay [​IMG] Hopefully the measurements are correct as the other HF 36S I have measures much larger. I assume even though made by HF, they make them to the Burberry's "fashion" specifications and measurements, hopefully slimmer!

    A few things from last week:
    Pendleton Navy Blazer - I picked this up in a hurry thinking so I am not sure if it was the right thing. Probably between Brianpore and Grendel size
    Lanvin (paris/ny) Recent Feather Suede Blue Blazer with marble-like buttons
    Cole Haan leather belt

    and this ... which I am doubtful of its authenticity.

    No luck thrifting at all for a few weeks here but I did snag this Filson x Levis vest from the clearance rack at the Levis store for just about 90% off.

    This needs to be the auto reply, I always check this when in store pricing items.

    You realize, of course, that having said that, I'll never see another for the rest of my thrifty life!


    Seriously, I'll pay attention. Any patterns / colors to avoid?

    My family lives in Iowa and I must say that it has to possibly be the worst state to shop in. Up there with Wyoming and Alaska.... :cry:
