    Holy cow, it's rainin' Lobbs up in here lately!

    :worship:

    Man, I don't know if I could give full-on-bespoke-shoes-for-someone-else a shot. Measurements would be even more useless than usual I would think?

    Really awesome to see those... I wish I had time to thrift more. All I've found recently is this RG currency that I have no time to list :brick:

    Thrift fit from today. In retrospect, I'm not sure Spoo will approve: tie is too shiny for the matte of the SC. I was just so excited about wearing it ( :slayer: Vexco!!), that I didn't even think of it in the moment

    SC: Carroll & Co by Chester Barrie, double vent with a SWEET lapel roll 3 roll 2, traded from Vexco
    Shirt: British Textile, traded from Jkidd
    Tie: Ted Baker, thrifted by me
    Trousers: BR, bought on sale yrs ago
    Shoes: Bostonian, not thrifted

    I did a little shopping in Nataku's closet recently and decided I couldn't wait to wear one of the sportcoats. It needs to be let out a bit around the waist and maybe a little tweak on the sleeve length, but it's pretty close. I love the tie, but it's a little narrow for most of my jackets so I don't wear it often. Here are the thrift fit pics.

    I've got a few suits that are ready to go on eBay, but I wanted to offer them up here first to my thrifting bros. They're not quite SF approved being non-vented, double-pleated, and three-button. But maybe that will be right up someone's alley. I'd wear 'em if they fit.

    what freaking Marshall's do you go to that has shit like that? I've never seen anything remotely that good at a Marshall's or TJs. I'm definitely jealous of all the good finds! :happy:
