Got a Tom James suit on Ebay for roughly $16
100% Silk, a lighter Navy Blue color
I did a tally, there are 70 stores on my normal routes.
I hit 7 of them 3 times a week
25 of them I hit 1 timer per week every week.
It usually takes me 2 to 3 weeks to hit the rest depending on time.
So to answer your question with 46 stops, I hit 32 different stores per week at a minimum. On the good weeks I probably hit close to 50.
This does not include the constant travelling we do to visit familly about 3 hours away, which involves about 12 more stores.
I am all about:
Holy crap lol

Whoah, very nice. Where'd you grab these? I got a similar pair in navy from B&S ... a Barney's exclusive, better sole and materials, as you've mentioned, retailed for over $300. If they're 41/42, pls forward them to me, thx.
Thrift fit today. Chilly; below 60 this morning. Almost entirely thrifted.

Deets: Coat: HF MTM, "thrifted" by me. (I put that in air-quotes because it was bought at a consignment shop for a pretty penny) SC: Oxxford, traded from a dude here Waistcoat: J. Crew Retail Shirt: Borrelli, thrifted by me Tie: Italian woven wool, maker unknown (see detail shot -- anyone know this mark? If not, can someone shoot me a PM with the link to the label thread?)

That's amazing. I don't think I've even hit 25 different thrift stores in my life.
You can wear all that below 60?? I couldn't wear all of that below 20. I'm too hot blooded.
However, I am digging the entire thing.
A lot going on, but I like it. I think the waistcoat is short for you though, either that or you need higher rise trousers.
