    That looks damn sturdy! Are those key holes? Did it come with keys?

    Did you happen to post on a thread few years ago where folks were showing off their greens along with Jason from Thick as Thieves?

    PM on the way. . . . .
    Here's the first post of an excellent thread on what you should be looking for to build your wardrobe. If you want to follow it further, click on the little quote-arrow [​IMG] next to Manton's name and you will be transported to the thread here on SF. This is my bible for my personal search. The black tie rig alone has taken nearly a year and I'm still not done.

    PUT THE TIE
    ON YOUR TIE RACK
    AND STEP AWAY!

    You are currently in possession of one of the most perfectly thrifted "wedding ties" EVAR. If you let it get away from you, you might incur the unimaginable wrath of the thrift gods in a manner so great that they will curse not only you but 10 to 20 of the rest of us as well.

    You WILL attend weddings in the future and you will come to SF to ask what tie you should wear to these events. Upon learning that you have sold your most perfect RLPL Glen Plaid wedding tie for a few shekels, your life will be without value to you.

    Unless, of course, you send it to me.

    I think it was a few years ago someone started a post within the official tweed appreciation thread titled to the effect of "show us your green blah blah". But I think I've might of been mistaken because your jacket is obviously corduroy...Anyhow, I distinctively remembered Jason wearing a green tweed jacket, silver or white pants, green socks, and brown wingtips while sitting on a green couch. That was the mad shit! He pulled it off!!! I think I might of saved the picture...brb going to dig...

    Picked this Tom James canvassed suit from ebay for 81 bucks this weekend. It matches my measurements with some extra fabric for tweaks here and there.

    The Zegna tie looks real and recent. Nice score.

    That's your first big thrifting trip? Wow. I would have passed on the Burberrys sportcoat (unless it fits you), and maybe some of the ties, but the rest is amazing stuff.

    I just got back from a long weekend in the North Woods and wanted to give a shout out to JPMorris for hooking me up with the most redonkulus suit! :slayer: :slayer: Pics after it returns from the tailors, and also to Hansdurhund for some sweet Marc Jacobs sunglasses and a Lacoste long sleeve shirt for the wife, :D I didn't get to do any thrifting up there, however, by buddy's mom, whose house we were staying at, is an antiques dealer and she hooked me up with a vintage Hudson Bay blanket! One more thing to check off the list. :nodding: Pics when it returns from the cleaners.

    Looks good, but you should find a dressier watch to go with a suit.
