$6.98 for the two of them.
In fact, a man could do quite well with a wardrobe stocked entirely with white and blue shirts.
Hmmm, are my eyes deceiving me, or did you make a subtle change to the header by adding that blue gingham tie? At last, after many years of trying, I found myself a great three piece suit at a thrift store. Grey flannel with a subtle pinstripe, perfect fit on the shoulders, sleeves, waist of the jacket - I'm a tiny guy and I never thought it would be possible! I would like to add that your shopping posts increased my drive to find a great thrifted piece.
Thanks, Percy!Just remember, tenacity is everything in the world of thrift shopping.For instance: today the thrift store was jammed to the gills with incredible suits, all for a guy 4 inches taller and 30 lbs heavier than me...oh well. Still, I got a couple of shirts.And don't forget about the tailor. The most important thing I learned working in menswear years ago is that if te shoulder fits, the rest can be altered.
I already know about the 'if the shoulder fits, everything else can be adjusted rule', but finding a shoulder that fits is always the difficult part for me, which is why I become very excited when I do find a shoulder that fits!
After a dry spell, I found another suit yesterday. It's grey wool with pinstripes. In my wanderings the hardest thing to find is a decent navy suit with flat front pants. Every one that I encounter is either the wrongsize or has been through a warzone with the battlescars to prove it. I hope persistence will pay off in the end.
Amen,brother.I just ran through the used clothing racks at Hoodwill like Bush ran through the U.S. budget surplus and scooped up 3 button downs of the Nautica and Brooks brethren variety.
