    Here are pics of the two sport coats I grabbed the other day. Both are 40R and available, but I'm a bit tight money-wise right now, so I can't let them go for bargain basement prices.

    Z Zegna, 100% linen, made in Switzerland

    Ermenegildo Zegna, 100% cashmere, made in Switzerland. Older tag but pretty current gorge/vents/button stance, pockets still sewn shut!

    ^^ Speaking of coincidences, I found an identical Z Zegna linen blazer the other day too. Light khaki. Made in Switzerland and has MOP buttons. Same size, but a Long.



    Yup. Carpooling definitely saves on gas and you don't have to worry about what part of the store to hit first when you can split up. Trouble is when the other finds something you want and then comes the time to try and barter. Luckily we're a size or two off from each other.

    For some reason my local thrift shop decided to unload all of their sweaters during a blazing hot day...I manned up and suffered through trying them on. Picked up some great Polo/Benetton/Woolrich wools and cable knits, mostly L and XL, but a few M's as well. Planning to throw them in a cheap sweater megathread in the fall, but if anyone is interested in cheap, durable sweaters get at me.

    Just picked up a mannequin. Clearly have yet to figure out optimal lighting. For those that were looking, http://www.ebay.com/itm/270874198492?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648. Cheap, pinnable, and good for anything larger than 38ish. Unfortunately I didn't have any old shirts that fit it, so had to go with a Luigi Borelli which I hope is no worse for the wear...

    Orphaned and dated Brioni 40R US - bit beat but couldn't bring myself to pass

    ^ WOW that is a great find for a first (or, frankly, hundred and first or thousand and first) post.

    i wouldn't get it tailored, that is a nice enough coat that someone here will undoubtedly be willing to trade you for something awesome in your size. also: you're going to get a bunch of people asking you for measurements, so you might as well learn how to measure and post the measurements. unless you want to go the 951socal route. :rimshot:

    If the shoulders fit, anything is possible.

    Non thrifting success (well, an anniversary gift from my wife): My ratio shirt arrived today, and it is pretty great.

    Thrifting success (well, not for me, but for for someone here, perhaps):


    really quick and dirty and very approximate measurements:
    p2p: 23
    shoulder: 19.5
    length: 32
    sleeve: >25

    So ... 42 R?

    And now ....
