Finals are over.
So you decided to treat yo' self in celebration it seems.
That is truly frightening
Two thrift stores and a Buffalo Exchange later...

^^^ (detail) Front and back of label from interior breast pocket. Corneliani? It's really nice - pick stitching everywhere and soft, substantial fabric.
And a bunch of really cool vintage Trad / Ivy stuff that will eventually end up in my Etsy shop.
1x VINTAGE Belvest dark chocolate brown belting overcoat. Not sure what size - 44+ or so? Made in Italy. It looked OK - no holes or moth damage, but upon close inspection there was a lot of wear consistent with use. Threadbare places, heavy wear around the pockets and sleeve cuffs, across the back, etc.
1x Orphan Brooks Brothers custom tailored charcoal gray pinstripe suit jacket. 42+ or so?
3x Jantzen Tailors spread collar custom made shirts with fat MOP buttons. 16 x 32 or so.
Thanks for checking this stuff out. I'm sorry that it was so long, but I was already more than halfway through before I even thought to insert spoilers to cut down the overall length. I'll be sure to get on that next time.
I have been told here (and confirmed for myself) that flawed Brioni is nearly always worth picking up. So yeah, I didn't pass on it. Also, I sold my wheels so I probably won't be passing on or picking up anything.
Now, if only I were not so poor....
Talking of shoes, anyone want Bruno Magli Loafers 11.5 or Ferragamo Split Toe Caps SZ 11? You can have them for price I paid. Ferragamos are in great nick and really sleek buggers. Cost me $49.99 but worth it I think. They dont fit my damn feet though, oh well..........
Oh Magli's cost me $15. Also can proxy a pair of burgundy Bally Loafers SZ 11 but will cost ya $45 - that thrift store has highball prices
I found this exact piece, size 40R as well. Want to trade?
Only kidding - it would be legendary stupid to trade the same piece and waste fees on postage
^^^ (I never could figure out what this emoticon was for, but it seems to fit in this context, lol.)
And I have a 44R one from eBay
