    Hey guys sorry for the noob questions, but I'm trying to learn.

    I found a Yves Saint Laurent Suit, but I had some doubts about the quality. The materials seemed fine and it was fully canvassed but the "menswear" and Dillards lead me to believe that maybe it was one of the lower end lines.

    Similarly, I found a Hickey Freeman sport coat that I wasn't sure about. Everything looked fine, but I'm just starting out looking at suits and things so I didn't want to be too hasty.

    Was it a good decision to pass on these or should I go back and hope they are still there?

    +1. He constantly has stuff that I want. That Corneliani Linen looks exactly like a BR I picked up at the outlet. It would be a nice upgrade...

    Just out of curiosity, what do you guys do for lunch / dinner when thrifting for most the day?

    Make own and keep in car?

    Or

    Eat out?

    I try to plan a trip so that I end up at a favored restaurant when the lunch bell tolls.

    Sorry [​IMG]. 16.25" shoulders really would work for you? I'll take a fit pic when I get the jacket (if it is totally unwearable there is already someone who has dibs on the thread, Eazye, you'd be third I think, sorry)

    ^^^ I usually eat a big meal and then head out. But then again, I rarely hit more than 3 spots on any one trip (unless they happen to be all within walking distance) because I take the subway or buses.

    @ Nataku: I'm pretty sure I sold a pair of AE Waltons to a guy in Minnesota a few months ago. I think it would be funny if he donated them and you're the one who picked them up. [​IMG]
