Gonna head out tomorrow. I'm praying for a decent pair of suede wingtips. (or any decent suedes)
I've been searching the internet for a great pair sub-$100 and haven't had a bit of luck besides Lands end.
Wish me luck, haha.

I have not gotten around to cleaning the rest up yet. The AE's will hit ebay tonight, unless some one here wants them.
I'm interested in the burgundy AE's....

I think that's one of my favorite parts of thrifting. Finding things that clearly had a lot of work put into them and are now virtually free.
I've nearly bought a number of suits/orphans even with severe damage simply because of the phenomenal work put into them.
Found a brand new Canali shirt today, size 43|17 At least I assume it's new because the cloth looks unwashed and the plastic collar retainer is still in place.
Unfortunately one of the buttons had some sort of accident:
Not quite my size, anyone want it?
NWT BB Multicolor sport shirt in my size
NWT Austin Reed worsted lightish grey trousers in my size, unhemmed
Dark navy/charcoal with red over check Hart Schaffner & Marx for Dior 2btn SB 38r
Polo by RL green pattern tie
Robert Talbot green striped tie
All from the same GW. Pretty decent day I'd say.
I've wound up with a Sterlingwear Navy-issued peacoat that is unfortunately about 5 sizes too large for me.
It's probably one of the heaviest coats I've held and the construction is indestructible. From the markings it appears that it was actually issued, but it shows no wear at all so I assume it was very rarely worn.
The tag is marked at 44r:
Shoulder to Shoulder: 19.75"
Pit-Pit when buttoned: 23"
Shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve: 26.5"
Top of Collar to bottom...
