    Looks like they discontinued the 17" actually.

    Probably because Spoo doesn't like them.

    If you'd lay your arms (at least 1) loosely at the sides, I'd have a better idea if that was too long.

    Picked up a few interesting things today. All available.

    First up, a Holland & Holland shirt, because I know some folks here like to shoot...

    Collar - 15" ... P2P - 21.5" ... Sleeves - 33"


    Next, Trafalgar braces, grabbed because of the really nice burgundy leather.

    Now, hoping someone might be able to help me ID this brown knit tie.

    [​IMG]

    The tag says, All Silk, Made in Italy and "C.C.I.A Milano 723293". Google search reveals it might possibly have something to do with Chanel?, but that's all I can figure out.

    Also, not really a thrift brag, but today I went to the Harry Rosen outlet with some of the cash I've made from thrifting and bought something I've been wanting for a while. Paid a roughly B&S price.

    Incotex chino-lino pants. Not available.

    I really like the chino linos, I was stoked to find them in my size, for every bit of $3

    How can you possibly write code on an ipad? That sounds like hell.

    It's hard to tell the length of the coat since both of your arms are not at your sides for reference. I like my coats to end at my thumb's first knuckle. I think the button stance is a bit high. Maybe you can use 1 more inch of waist suppression. Love the bow tie. Which university do you teach at?

    That is so boss if they includes hologram in the final product! I can't help but feel this is just for hype and not feasible for mass productions. Either way, a cool post.
