    A good seam ripper can get that embroidery out, have you or someone you know who can do it. They are for sale at Joann Fabric for 3 bucks. Just tedious because if you don't take your time you can damage the coat..

    Thanks. I'll investigate more fully maybe with my tailor. I checked to see how the embroidery is on there - like if it through all the layers - but it's only on the outer hell in doesn't go through the insulation or inner lining. Can you tell I know nothing about the mysteries of promotional item embroidery? :D

    I've been thrifting regularly while I learn about fit and details - had some interesting finds, but not much of particular note yet. I also work a block from a Nordstrom Rack, where I found this Ermenegildo Zegna "Milano" fit gray suit today, in my size, marked down to an obscenely low percentage of retail. It had the "Altered or Refinished" label on it (accounting for the the price), but neither I nor the in-house tailor could see any evidence that it's been actually been altered. A bit wrinkly -- looks like it spent some time stuffed in a shopping bag, but otherwise brand new, in perfect condition, unfinished cuffs, all the basting in place.

    Needs just a few tweaks

    If the MMM and Isaia weren't nice enough finds, this looks insane! Can't wait to see what the garment looks like.
    This, folks, is why is pays off to search the womens section. I lost count of all the orphaned suit pants I've found there. That and I shop for my wife so I'm in there anyway.
    :wow:
    Nice!! :slayer:

    Any 16.5/34s out there? Scored two really nice Paul Stuart dress shirts today.

    Also found some great stuff for myself at TJ Maxx/Marshall's on clearance:
    -two pairs of Panthrellas
    -double pack of thick Woolrich socks
    -PRL socks
    -jack spade leather key fob
    -Tumi computer sleeve

    I was pretty happy with my pick ups.

    Also the one Marshall's had a Acne jacket for $69 down from $199. Don't know enough about the brand though.

    Had a marginal run today for just 2 stores - thought it was better at the time, but the measurements weren't quite as nice as I thought...

    Nice Canali shirt, a BB shirt cotton/cashmere blend (haven't seen that before), a PRL belt and a BB Makers tie:

    Then I did my good deed for the day - found a 43R Jack Victor coat that I liked, and then searched out the pants to reunite the suit for cheap. I'm pretty sure they wanted to be reunited at least...

    Then I found a 48R (or so) Pronto Uomo Tuxedo - Super 120s with Lanificio di Valdengo fabric. At first, I thought it was Loro Piana, but afraid not. Always passed on Pronto Uomo before, but figured I could trade/flip this pretty easily.
