    I have a three piece samuelsohn that has working cuffs, but it might be custom made. Also, I really hope you guys aren't actually licking the buttons :laugh:

    I went out quickly today and found a pair of madras shorts. They're great and NWOT, but unfortunately too big for me. Hand-dyed Indian madras from the English Sports Shop in Bermuda. They must have travelled quite a way to end up here! The colors are awesome (top half of the picture is more accurate, the glare makes them look more washed out) Size 34 (Available).

    Hey Guys,

    I'm very envious of all your finds! If someone finds a 40L suit please let me know, I have been searching and never come across one of decent quality.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!!!

    Took lunch early and found two pairs of Hanover Longwings.
    One is Pebble Brown V Cleat 10.5 C
    Other is Pebble Black 12 D?


    Also found these little guys.

    Went hunting through a new-to-me Goodwill at lunch. An article from last year promised that this place was flush with $100-retail Jos Bank suits for $12. Alas, I found no bank, but I did snag these two ties. Nothing extraordinary, though, and I'm simply posting because this is a grenadine, yes? My first one! It's branded from the H. Stockton men's store here, which frequents in lawyer-wear, but I do need a nice power tie.


    The plaid is a Made in USA Pendleton. If I decide I don't want it, I'm sure I can sell it to some hipster.

    I'll refuse from posting further until I find something worthy of this message board.

    Is the grenadine white or cream?

    Wait?? Are you looking for Jos A Bank suits? If so, I live like 15 miles from the headquarters and main factory. They are everywhere, I pass up 40 to 50 a day.

    I have a $150 giftcard to JoB...been looking for something I want from them but struggling. Might buy a pair of white bucks and a bunch of shoe trees when they have their half off sale.

    No, I am most certainly not looking for Jos A Bank suits. The Stays Cool seersucker and the oh-shit-we're-going-to-a-wedding gray houndstooth hanging in my closet are two of the many skeletons placed there to rot until I find suitable replacements.

    And that reminds me, I need a super-duper seersucker in a gray suit in a 40 S ....


    said article, for reference: http://www.ajc.com/news/north-fulton/wealthy-johns-creek-opens-645899.html


    "Nestled on a busy commercial corner, the store offers items contributed on-site and from nearby collection sites. There are Joseph A. Banks suits, usually retailing above $100, selling for $12.59. A pair of Aetrex running shoes, $115 new, go for $15.91."
