    Paul Stuart camelhair sportcoat in herringbone with an alternating overcheck. Nearly brand new, and close enough to my size at a 39R so that I'll get some good wear out if it.

    I've had a few good shoe finds in the last few days. Along with the Florsheim Imperial longwings I have posted in B&S, I got another (slightly more worn) pair of FILs in black. And today I picked up these Alden 911s in burnished tan calf. They couldn't have been worn more than twice. $19.91. They're 13 Es and may be staying right here if I decide the looseness in the heel isn't too bad.

    A nice vintage Nunn Bush Pebble-grain shoe in a great walnut patina, back when NB competed very well with Florsheim.

    See any cracks in the leather after all these years? Just barely wrinkling in the creases.

    Newly soled/heeled in a perfect fit for me, 10D.

    Picked up something that I found to be rather interesting today. Bill Blass DB 100% camelhair coat, dark green in color...with the tags still on it. Tag on the left sleeve and a store tag on the back left sleeve. Front waist pockets are still sewn shut, coat buttons on the bottom button.. Tag says 42sh. Last picture shows best representative of color.

    The coat doesn't fit me too well but I figured maybe someone here could find a use for it. I'll entertain any reasonable offer.

    Take it to a reputable tailor and have a cool waistcoat made out of it. Or re-donate it.

    Came across a Dege and Sons DB gray pinstripe suit jacket. No pants anywhere to be found. [​IMG]

    So I left if behind. I would have picked it up for less than $10, though don't know how I would have worn it. But this store, with it's over-the-top prices wanted $40 for it, and I just wasn't going to bite. I've found enough SR stuff now that I can resist the temptation pretty easily. I did tuck it away though by the other pinstripe odd jackets. So hopefully it'll go unnoticed until I can go back and see if the pants turn up. Doubt it though. And a shame b/c it was pretty much my size and with basted pockets I figure it hasn't been worn much - if at all.

    As a consolation prize I took home a nice BBGF glen plaid sportcoat made in Italy by Cantarelli - even that was $17.

    That sounds like an awesome store, except for the prices. I've never come across any SR stuff down here yet.

    Finds: Brooks brothers dress pants. These have the slit in the back of the waist that incotex trousers have. The tags on the inside seem to have japanese writing, I am not sure though. they are size 33 and will be in the B&S forums. Zanella trousers, these were too big and not as slim as I thought they would be. They were unhemmed, I might keep them and have the waist taken in. Edit: I just noticed that the cuffs on the BB trousers have a small little button on them, which can be removed to increase the inseam by about 4 inches. I have never seen that before.

    I decided to hit up a few stores after class today because of the nice weather....I think everyone else had the same idea. Stores were insanely crowded and overly picked over. I saw one nice Lanvin tuxedo, but it was too large and too notched lapels.

    ^^^ Nice find on the trousers, I have found Zanella but none of them with flat fronts. I don't really care for pleats.

    kind of a hot streak, but I did go to six stores to find this stuff.

    C- Congratulations and welcome to the Forum. Not quite sure how I feel about those shoes, but for $4, I'd have grabbed them too. Good find.
