    Seersucker without darts is hard to find these days. They'd love this over at AAAC. (Edit: I guess you knew that.)

    Cool, thanks for the info, I'm going to have to track some down!
    Totally could be, I'm no fish expert.
    My thought's exactly.

    Wow!

    Wow. Very nice. Lobbs are definitely the find of the year.

    (Bontonis are nice too.)

    Hey again, wanted to tell about a couple near misses again. I posted last week about a Kiton cashmere sports coat I left behind. Well I went by again this weekend, on the urging of a few of you who responded, on the off chance that guy hung out at the store for more than a week. No such luck, wasn't really too surprised. But I had another first, found a pair of Brioni gray wool flat front pants, my size and everything. But upon further examination found a big rip in on leg, and several more minor areas of damage on the other. After the Kiton, and several people here suggesting that minor holes could be rewoven, I seriously considered getting the pants anyways, but they were beyond saving. Now if people respond that brioni cutoffs are the hot new thing, I'm going to loose it

    And off to a second store, found a Oxxford clothes glen plaid suit, again my size, 36r. I've come across maybe half a dozen Oxxfords before, but none that small. But on a second examination found 5 or 6 holes in the jacket, in very obvious places, so back on the rack for it as well. It seems like finding things that are 1, quality 2, my size and 3, in good shape is like winning the lottery. Havent won yet, but I'm going to keep trying.
