Beyond ties and shoes, and occasionally shirts, I don't think that thrifting is a very good way for a noob (as most of us were) to actually improve your wardrobe, at least at anything other than a glacial pace. You have find things that simultaneously satisfy each criteria: (a) are of good quality, (b) fit you well (c) are not dated. AND, you have to have an eye trained to identify those. How often does that alignment happen in a thrift shop? Not much for a casual...

After never, never having any luck finding shoos, found a winner yesterday. C & J Sydney loafers. Bummed they don't fit me. Also some AE to round it out.
Ends today, currently only 1 bid. Canali charcoal suit 42L. http://www.ebay.com/itm/141443695777?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
Any of you guys, besides Matty Long Legs, thrifting in Richmond, VA? I was hitting my normal Goodwill this morning when some cat came through with an obvious pattern similar to mine: suits/jackets, ties, then shirts. He was going mostly by feel and popping tags with a speed and eye that comes from much browsing of this thread and much time in the racks. Intimidated, I slowly backed away.
Finally a little something....moderately recent Canali suit.

Oh, the director has already requested a fedora, that's in the works!
Hey Thrift Fellas: The son is in a high school play, in the role of "1930s IRS agent". Needs to come up with a vintage looking suit (although set in 1930s, seriously anything 30s-50s would probably fit the bill). If anyone has anything like that laying around in about a size 36 or 38, shoot me a PM.
