They say good things come to those who wait. It’s never more true than in thrifting. I’ve been wanting a suit in this pattern, called a nailhead, for probably four or five years, at least. I came close to buying a couple at retail, but paying retail prices always deterred me. Finally, I recently snagged this Samuelsohn and it’s just back from the tailor.

Shirt: Robert Talbott, thrifted, $5
