brooks brothers black fleece wool houndstooth trousers, by thom browne. i immediately emailed the seller to get more information. rent must have been due because he lowered the price $50 within two emails.
before i clicked buy now, i sent the image to a friend to get his opinion. he loved them of course, but said, "im sure you can thrift something like that, they have a vintage quality."
not this time. this suit was too small. men were quite petite in those days if i must say. i still bought it because i knew several people visit my blog for unique vintage men apparel. so its on the sidebar if you would like to purchase it.
just the other day i was in another city meeting a potential client and decided to visit the local thrift stores while i was in town. and i saw these.you know exactly what i am thinking. score one for the team. surprisingly they are too big, but a quick trip to the tailors for surgery and they will be one great pair of trousers.
i am so glad i waited. i now have a great pair of pants and i and saved a whole bunch of money by switching to gieco. lol.
have you ever seen something you really wanted to buy, but waited and was able to save money and feel like you just hit the lotto? well maybe not the lotto...lol
