    Obviously the list isn't perfect, but it's relevant for the thrifting thread. The more purchases at high end stores, aka Neiman, Saks, Bergdorf, of which Dallas/Ft.Worth area has a high concentration, the more goodies likely to end up in local thrift stores. Also, having been to Dallas, a lot more people, both male and female are dressed up for daily activities than here in prosperous New England.

    Just imagine how it is here in the "Snack Food Capital" of the US. A lot of sweat pants on the thrift racks. If the list went to 5,000, we still wouldn't be on it.

    Thrift fit today. These pants are absolutely amazing and are partly responsible for vaulting Barbera stuff to the top of my "wants" list.

    nice fit Andro, I tried to get some of those O'Cooney trousers from that insane lot he picked up, but was a little late with the trigger finger!

    Oh yeah... In Dallas a woman won't go anywhere (including the gym) without full face makeup on. New England is much more laid back about dress.

    jacket looks too big bwoh, it kinda looks like it's just hanging off your body. i think you need to get it taken in a bit.

    Thanks man. I was incredibly lucky to snag them - they fit me PERFECTLY without any alterations at all! That is how they arrived to me, not a thing done to them. The leg opening, rise, length, waist, everything is like they were made for me. Seriously, these fit better than most of my post-alterations pants. Really lucked out.

    Hmmm. Really? At the waist, you think? This is post-alterations. I actually like how it fits at the waist. If you mean in the chest, I might agree a bit. Unless you're talking about the spoiler pic, because there my arms are all awkwardly outstreched and making it funky.

    I just picked up a beautiful Suit at the Sally Ann. Wonder if anyone could help me out with the manufacturer. It's a Michele D'Ambra, made in Italy. Nothing online about it, it's a gem.

    Thrift fit today... I've got a soft spot in my heart for seersucker suits since I'm from the South... This corded cotton isn't technically seersucker, but it's close enough and it's warm today
