you could put one of us thrifty crazies here (me not best picker, many are better here, I am not volunteering) on the case...and it may or may not be almost new, or perhaps fit almost but not quite right...and spend less.
I say, smoke em if you got em (I rarely do, heh).
In what movie was it said, "Sometimes your just gotta say, 'WTF'?" I do believe, Risky BUsiness...
big fan of Eton shirts here, rarely see them in thrifts unfortunately
Allen Edmonds Park Ave 12 EEE for my "baby" brother (he said 4E would be better but he thinks he can squeeze in).
Allen Edmonds McAllister 12 D (Available but there is some cracking in the broguing).
Thanks for ceding me the territory!
What size shirts do you have? I'm always on the look out for regular fit, slim cut is too tight on my frame.
I have posted a bunch of shirts....only $20 each to cover the purchase cost and my time
Why did you leave behind the SC? That thing is baller!
Want if it is in your size?
Not a thrift find, but consignment. Filled a big summer hole so I was glad to get it. NWT ZZegna sportcoat, linen/cotton blend. The white balance is off (iPhone) so the jacket looks lighter than it is. It's a dark navy.
Thrift fit. Had a (rare) formal meeting today, so went really conservative for me. I'm really liking this suit the more I wear it, despite the nontraditionally low gorge. The body fit is just great everywhere, which is extremely rare for me.
Suit: Hickey Freeman "Customized" (very old...I think it's the equivalent to the modern "hand tailored" line)
Shirt: Brooks Bros. slim fit
Tie: Brooks Bros
Shoes: AE Park Aves
All thrifted by me
Gorge doesn't look low to me, could be the angle though. I like the suit a lot!
What do you consider a traditional-height gorge to be? That seems fine to me.
Hmm, maybe it is the pictures/angle, but it is a bit lower than my other jackets, but not as much as I thought now that I look at it. The bottom of the gorge sits about 1.5-2" above my belly button when closed.
