    You can almost never go wrong with light blue. It's a busy pattern so I'd stick with solid.

    Some recent finds, most from this past weekend:

    A green toggle-coat by Abercrombie and Fitch, made in Italy, with real wood toggles, horn buttons, throat latch, no A&F logos/markings on the outside (size M, available):

    Unfortunately, the seams that hold the toggles are about to break. The top toggle is fine, but middle two are wearing down, and the bottom one is in terrible shape.

    That vest is awesome!! Too bad the 28's arnt available for trade (nice find) and the RLPL...38R be ready for a flood of PM's If it was a 36 you'd already have one from me. Smaller size is HARD to find.

    Nice find of the RLPL, how come it's crossed off and 40 is written on it?. Too bad the vest is a large, been looking for a size M backless vest.

    Thrift fit today... Pretty pleased with the fit, not so much with the pics... Think I need to break out my tripod and use my eBay photo setup

    Mashburn and Billy Reid are fine if you have the money, which I don't. The Nordstrom Rack on Lenox near Roswell Road is pretty good, but I haven't ever found anything amazing there. I've actually never been to a Last Call here — it might be because the only one is OTP. I can't really think of anything good off the top of my head. You could stroll through Phipps to see how the rich people shop, I guess.

    If your family will tolerate a Goodwill or two, that's a whole different ballgame...

    I'm just worried somebody who works in admissions at a college you apply to will find your SF posts. Then it's Cal State - SF for you.

    Thx for all the feedback. The fit was inspired by pics on waywrn and the sf home page. I prefer patterns to solids; just seems more interesting. But I appreciate that not everyone agrees.

    Ian: go Bears!

    Also, are there multiple levels of Corneliani shirts? The one I bought today has plastic buttons. It says Corneliani I'd, then the t corneliani underneath. Did I m. Also, two more beat up Zegna shirts on the small side, a silk square for me, and a couple of items for my secret santa. Oh, and a Barbour shirt. Also plastic buttons. Weird.
