    Did you happen to see a 42R?

    Actually, I think you pulled it off much better than most could--between the tie, shirt, PS and jacket, you had four different patterns going on, which is a lot of balls in the air, and you didn't miss by much. It takes stones to try, and you deserve props for that. If you keep at it, I think you'll eventually nail it, even if the trousers and socks make it six patterns.

    Thanks! Software, but close enough. They're used to it by now... been doing it for over a year. Some of 'em even started wearing ties to work. [​IMG]

    Yup. But leave the Pendleton--I'm a huge Pendleton fan, but it doesn't work for me and not sure if it would for anyone.

    Yeah, that's the issue, more or less. I'm still small-time enough that I don't mind so long as I don't lose money. I'm in the midst of a major two-years-coming cull, and, my lord, I have made a lot of mistakes. Two dozen shirts, a dozen sweaters and a lot more got re-donated yesterday, and there's still a lot to go through. Plus I have about a dozen pairs of shoes to sell.

    thrift/discount/inheritance? bragging thread. Can't believe I didn't figure this out before, but a RN# search on the content label on a cashmere sweater I got a year ago turns out to be RLPL.

    That's one thing I miss, being able to wear heavy clothing. When I leave the office it's usually chilly enough to justify a coat, although it's certainly not necessary. I think I'll be able to get some use out of it.


    I can't ever seem to find a Harris, but I have found a few other brands.


    They only had a 44 and a 40L here...thanks for the socks BTW, they are really nice.


    They had a 40L. I wear a 42R suit jacket and the 44L was perfect for me. I'm glad it was a L and not a R, as I prefer longer sleeves on coats because I can't stand it when they ride up my wrists when I extend my arms - and I also hate coats that ride up above my waistband. Here are some more pics in case you're interested in the 40L.

    Thanks, and luckily this one was significantly cheaper than that, otherwise I would have had to pass.

    Yeah I saw that you got the socks, was really strange how it tracked them. How do they fit?
