I've been looking for a flight coat in my size for a reasonable price for three-freaking-years.
Was this a suit or an orphan?
I would kop on that flight coat at $25. All others, good pass unless those Bespoke suits fit you.
Have you ever thought about getting the jacket shortened? I know lots of folks on here are against it but I had good experiences with jacket shortening just under 1 inch. You really NEED a good tailor for that though. Good luck!
I think that would emphasize the rise on the pants, it doesn't look bad as is, just more 'distinguished' in the cut than what I would typically wear, I'm not worried.
Men of official thrift/discount store bragging thread, I copped two identical, unworn, pairs of the these Harold's wool trousers today at GW for $1.50 each. I know they're nothing particularly spectacular, but they seem to be very well made, the wool is substantial for cooler weather, and they fit me, or at least I think they do. I like them quite a bit. What do you guys think?
Also, really enjoying voraciously scouring these threads the past month.
Enjoy your pants, but please - all fit pics must require shoes from this post forth.
You guys ever pick up "Riviera" pants? I've seen them around and never really inspected them. Then I saw an real nice pair of wool flat front slacks made by our neighbors to the north with decent construction and they ended up being riviera. I picked them up for like 5 bucks and they fit fairly slim (no pics, getting hemmed now). Just wondering if anyone had experience with them.

Breuer can be quite good, at least their made in France stuff. I have a few, but none of their more recent made in Italy. Faconnable was made by Breuer, don't know if they still are. I don't know if resale is particularly strong for them, but they're solid additions to your own closet.
wow, breuer and faconnable are two of my go-to labels, especially for shirts. never knew that they were related.
I am also interested in this my pinstripe orphan could use a little shortening, how much did that cost you? also what tailor do you use since we live sort of close to one another I go to this guy in berkeley currently
Spoo- this has something to do with you? http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/10/2...-are-being-abandoned-on-long/?test=latestnews
It was $30. Not as expensive as I thought since she did a pretty good job. I shortened a DB SC that I got for $4. This was my very first thrifted jacket. I got lucky and ended up with a Samuelsohn. It looks pretty good now. I'll PM you my tailor.
So..whats the dealio with this jacket? Any ideas?
