    Too small for me (8D), hopefully someone will want to trade, if not guess they are going to ebay.


    Those are extremely nice. Very well done.

    As a bigger guy, I don't find too many suits that fit me. This one must have been made for my body doppleganger. A Hickey-Freeman Boardroom Collection, Loro Piana Zealander, two button that won't need so much as an adjustment to the sleeves, waist or inseam. Its freakin' perfect and very recent. $.99!!!!

    Picked up a HF boardroom navy pinstripe suit, charcoal windowpane orphaned jacket, and a thomas pink shirt today. The jackets fit perfectly (except for sleeve length), but unfortunately the pants are too tight and don't have enough room to be let out. Here's the flannel charcoal jacket: [​IMG]

    Found a blue D/B side vented blazer from Hickey Freeman Bespoke. Has really cool buttons that look like an old Roman coin. Also came across a great gray flannel suit from Oxxford. Came with the original Oxxford hanger too.

    Hey guys, Went to the local goodwill today and found a great suit in my size perfect fit. It says it's YSL but for some reason I have my doubts. These are the only identifying tags it has: [​IMG] [​IMG] Can anyone discern from these pictures if we are talking about an authentic YSL suit? It really doesn't matter a whole lot since it appears to be well made, and fits perfectly and generally looks nice, and was only 10$! Oops sorry about the giant pics!

    ^^ It's the old licensed stuff. Quality is nowhere near the new Rive Gauche line. Since it fits well, for $10 it's an alright deal.

    Yeah I assumed it wasn't Rive Gauche since the cut isn't as 70's YSL type, but yeah not bad for $10

    Most "real" YSLs of that time were made in France.

    Careful of those Zegna tags. That one indicates that the jacket is made from Zegna fabric, not that it was made by Zegna. That's not to say it isn't a nice, well-made jacket, but you have to look at the construction to know whether it is or not.

    ^^ This. Check for a tag on the opposite side on the lining or inside one of the inner pockets for the actual maker. It could also be custom made by a local tailor using the Zegna fabric.
