    Cotton Dockers: I was going to hit you hard on that T&A red stripe. But I restrained myself. Barely. If I've got anything you want to trade me for, get the eff at me. Otherwise, gents, here's my thrift fit pic from today:
    I know there's a lot of color going on here, but I thought it all tied together. Others may disagree. Incidentally, my first attempt with a Keaton style shirt. SC: Crombie mustard colored, unvented ( :( ) , traded from Horse's_Ass (KLOBBER: This is what a 32.5 looks like on me) Shirt: Holland & Sherry, possibly Tom James, thrifted by me Tie: Abboud, bought as employee at wholesale minus 40% Trousers: Hiltl, thrifted by me Shoes: AE Coppell, hooked up by Jkidd Belt: No name leather, thrifted by me. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Also, that ebayed cashmere HF for Gieves & Hawkes RTW arrived. Thing is effing sweet. Colors are way better than in the Ebay pics, soft as butter, SWEET lapel rolls.... This is a quality piece of HF clothing. Looks AWESOME! Take a look:
    [​IMG] Obviously not me. That's my 5 year old, who may be more affected than I'd like to admit by my clothing addiction. Seriously, though, this thing is EFFING sweet. Look for a real thrift fit pic soon.

    AHHHHH my bad on the bottom button. I think its kind of funny that when I first posted on this site 5 years ago I buttoned all the buttons on a suit and everyone and their moms critiqued me. Now we stand here today and I am getting critiqued on buttons. Somethings never change :lol:

    Top coats and such have different button rules. I still am overly cornfused about which buttons to button on a 3 button jacket. I know its supposed to be the second, but sometimes it looks good with the top two to me.

    Looks good. Coats are very hard for me to photo. I started it off with a quick bid for you!

    From top to bottom they go:

    Sometimes
    Always
    Never

    There's some fun labels I've never seen before in here, particularly the Isaia, and the last Zegna.

    Everything is available. The Zegnas are 46R, shoes are 9, and I'll post the other sizes soon. If you PM for something, include a best offer, so I don't have to deal with back and forth.
