    Vintage red blazer thrift fit pic, per request from JP Morris. Sorry for the crappy picture. Sleeves need to be lengthened a touch, so I haven't been able to bust it out yet.

    Better start using that conceal and carry permit. (mentioned at the risk of opening the gun debate can of worms again)

    Well, they'll clear all of the goofy shite out of the way, so maybe it's a good thing?

    "I'm wearing your grandpa's clothes ..."

    I think that'll be more than adequate deterrent.

    When I lived in England with tough firearm laws, people still got shot dead. Mainly gang related bullshit, although to my knowledge armed invasion in the UK is rare so the only viable to excuse to own a firearm is hunting related. To get a firearm, you needed written permission from a land owner and a small game hunting related interest (i.e. rabbits / vermin and deer). I had a firearm license although ultimately went more towards the archery side of things. Many owned air rifles over there as well, I swear a head shot with one of them would certainly result in a serious injury / casualty, particularly when a 22gr pellet penetrates at least halfway into a block of two by four.

    Over here in America there are way too many guns, banning them would be futile. They could do what they did in Australia by having people hand in their weapons, but here there is the 2nd amendment to deal with and people still like to believe we are a free country so that one would be tough for the Obama administration to get around.

    What they could do is make getting new firearms tougher - i.e.

    "why do you want a firearm"?

    "I am gonna be hunting sir".

    "Really, so you gonna shoot deer with a pistol then huh?"

    "Errrrr..... Yeah....."

    i always wonder if hardcore pro-gun dudes realize that their interests might not actually line up with the interests of the gun lobby. the gun lobby is there to serve and promote the interests of the gun manufacturing industry, not the interests of citizens (irrespective of their views on guns). or does every NRA member just blindly think "it would be best for the country if everyone kept buying more and more guns from the companies that sell, manufacture and import guns."

    EDIT: :stirpot:

    Great meeting you too. It's fun chatting with people who have the same affliction. The thrifting bug, that is.

    I'm trying really hard to resist speculative buys until I clear out a bunch of what I already have waiting to be listed. The buying part is so much more fun—and easier.
    I keep seeing tweeds that grab my interest, even if they aren't my size.

    I was tempted to pick this one up. Does Hickey-Freeman do work for Gieves & Hawkes? It was only half-canvas, which helped me say "no". Unfortunately the pic is pretty crappy.

    There was a jacket of E. Zegna fabric as well, but it was a striped orphan.

    --edit--

    I guess I answered my own question. HF had a N. American license in the 80's, which didn't show up when I searched from my phone.
