« $20 | Main | The Streets are Paved with Cell Phones »

I actively dislike the internet's favorite photo pose: the "check me out in the mirror cell phone pic." So I apologize in advance for the image below.

I found an awesome suit in a thrift store near my house. Good finds are hard to come by in DC, but this one was quite nice. I have a theory that I, being a slightly shorter than average man, can find better fitting suits in vintage stores because American men used to be smaller in general. Obesity, giant bottles of muscle builder powder, who knows? I feel like dudes are bigger now than they used to be and my vintage finds support this theory. Next time you are in a store that sells men's pants, try and find a pair of pants smaller than a 32 waist. You'll probably find no more than four pair. This is why I hit the thrift shops looking for things like this little fellow:

It is a vintage Yves Saint Laurent from Woodward & Lothrop. Today, in the right front pocket, I found this note, apparently from the World Bank with a cryptic code:

Where are Tom Hanks and Amélie when you need them?

damn anthony. that suit is fly. great fit.
