    Thanks! I really like the J&M ones, too. They are a bit darker in person. Worn once, and already a female compliment!


    Alan, I always said the same thing, until I got the Florsheims a month or so ago. Occasionally, there is a diamond in the rough. Next, maybe I'll find a suit that actually fits me and I'll completely run out of things to whine about!


    The Gant plaid shirt may be my #1 favorite find, strangely. Probably my favorite shirt, currently. I wore it all the time during the winter under cardigans and my navy sport coat. It was the first thing I found where the quality was so apparent that I started to understand why someone who wasn't insane could spend $150 on a shirt. I prefer the price I paid, however ($3).

      The tie finds continue:





      And I think these are both Incotex pants. Anyone wear a 38?

        Wow, had a huge day today. Found LOTS of NWT Ted Baker London SC's:

          JC what are the measurements on the 40r light gray Endurance SC? I am interrested if the measurements and price are right!

          Comment




            I'll be measuring tomorrow. I'll post when I've got them.

              Jason, how much do you want to sell the 40R linen sport coats for? I'm interested in both, once I know the measurements. Also, if you find any more - let me know. Seriously. I could use a regular supplier.

                Meh, went thrifting today. I think I'll need to get more comfortable buying good clothes new before I can consider buying them second-hand.

                  @JC Are you finding that NWT stuff at regular goodwill style thrifts or at consignment shop type places?

                    At a Savers... I've previously found a NWT Canali Proposta SC there and I've found a NWT Hickey Freeman suit at a church thrift shop

                        Jason, how much are you asking? You're welcome to contact me via email if you don't want to post prices publicly.

                            Picked up a few jawns at Savers' half price winter sale after work:


                            - Perfect condition London Fog trench that hits mid thigh (I've been searching forever for a good rainjacket)

                            - Navy Bagir International blazer

                            - Grey cashmere Club Room v-neck and a casual blue and purple check Club Room shirt


                            They had a lot of nice sweaters but all had noticeable holes.

                              Again with the ties .... how about a nice sportcoat or something, Goodwill? You haven't given me any shoes in a while, either.
