Will do, though this is the first pair I've ever come across.
+1,0000, I've actually never bought anything from a consignment store either, however, the recent suits and sport coats I've posted (that Etro, those custom Corneliani's etc) have come from a boutique thrift store where they price jackets and suits anywhere from $15-$200. Does that count? Everything they receive is donated and their profits go to a local children's hospital.
The only good thing to come out of this thread in the last 24 hours. Glad to have you back !
On a side note, may I remind people that there is a "block member" button (I just mentally block). Ignoring people may be a more effective way to make people go away than arguing, and it takes up fewer posts.
Asking this on behalf of another member:
If a person has shoulders that are 19", is a jacket that measures 19.25" too big, or acceptable. I have 21" shoulders, so .25-.5" more doesn't look strange, but it may on narrower frames.
Alright, moving on...
CASUAL FRIDAY thrift fit. In reality, I just wanted to show off my awesome first pair of selvedge. This is my first attempt at a SW&D-ish fit, so be gentle noobizor, acosbysweater, et. al.
Shirt: Zara Man (I know, I know, it's probably looked down upon here, but it's my guilty pleasure brand. Anytime I see it in my size, I'll pick it up. I don't know what it is about them, but i love the way their stuff is cut/fits me, and their patterns/styling.)
Pants: NWOT Simon Miller M001 straight leg Japanese selvedge jeans (my first pair!!!)
Shoes: Cole Haan glove leather shoes with Nike Air soles
Shirt, shoes thrifted (~$5, $13 respectively), jeans ebay ($75).
I really like that shirt. However I could never pull it off, with my current physical shape. Maybe soon.
It would be all warped looking like this.
18.5" is perfect for me but I can do 18-19" without it looking off
Great look! nojomo
^^^ Looks good. It's hard to tell re: the shoes, though. From your other Thrift Fits, I always thought that your jackets' shoulders were a little big and their length a little long, but here it just seems like you actually do have broad shoulders and a long torso. Like a swimmer.
Ha, yeah I do have a Michael Phelps-esque build with ridiculously wide shoulders and generally weird proportions (I take 20" shoulders on a 41" chest/35" pants waist), so it's always tough for me to find jackets that fit *just right*, and even when they do they still LOOK like they don't fit me. Thanks for the feedback!!
There is a poster here in their signature that is looking for 46XL suits. Grendel hooked me up with Hickey Freeman charcoal grey suit made with Loro Piana cloth. I've dropped some weight so it hangs a bit more now. I figured I'd offer it up here a keep it in the family.
Mexicutioner I think....and Hoofit
Nah mexicutioner is definitely not an xl.
It was Hoofit...
Send me. PM if you're interested.
You're right, his sig is just confusing, definitely Hoofit though.
