    After a trial affair with suits and ties, I think I'm going to slim down my MC collection and stick to stuff that makes me look my age, rather than a kid in dad's clothes.

    Closet cleanout = sick nasty grails.

    Lovely camel-coloured sport coat, pick stitching on lapels and on the outer seams.

    The colour is actually darker and "more alive" when you see it in real life.

    Wowzers! That thing is a beauty. What size? My favorite thrift find is also a piece from Zegna Couture.

    Whenever I try to post pictures of my finds it will not work. I am being directed to a page which tells me "Post not found" or something like that. Anyone know how I am going to fix it?

    It's a 44-46 (24" chest and 22" waist IIRC) and certainly is from Cleveland (Kilgour Trout) but this Trout was captured in a different stream than it's native habitat! :happy:

    Don't know what to tell you other than posting pics on this thread straight up sucks. If only you could post multi images at once rather than one at a time. Plus you have to put them in in opposite order. Heaven forbid if you put your text in first or the photos won't come in. [​IMG]

    Gorgeous! Nice find! Yeah, I've never seen Napoli Couture here in Rochester. If there is any it had to be bought elsewhere.

    The nicest I have seen here were the Kiton/Brioni dress shirts I randomly found....my only instances of items better than HF (save 1 Canali suit) in about 200 thrift store visits. This was sold in Cleveland but found in another city......big city though, so I'm not totally shocked.

    Wait a minute... Kilgore Trout is an actual thing? Not just a character in Kurt Vonnegut stories?
