Just a quick note - I dont want to turn this thread into the thrift thread part 2 - I want to keep it a bit curated and not so much common stuff here. Gmmcl, sorry bro but I edited out your ties. I don't think that any ties really serve a place here, unless its something like a turn of the century thing, or something of great historical importance.
I know that the majority of posters in this thread will be the thrift guys who find stuff, but please use your judgement before posting to keep this as well curated as possible.

Spoo, given your apparent interest, you never seem to wear any vintage pieces. Any particular reason, or am I off-base?
I really dont wear vintage clothing at all, no - but that does not mean it does not interest me. Vintage clothing does not really fit my style, so it does not get worn. But, as you know I do love clothes
and Im a curious person by nature, so the historical side of them really interests me. Also, its really interesting to see the "they dont make them like they used to" aspect of things. Like those HF and bespoke suits from the 40s and 50s that Nataku and Brianpore posted - I mean, you just dont have artisans today that can replicate that kind of work.
While I dont own much vintage clothing myself, I do have a pretty strong affinity for vintage accessories. Ive got a collection of vintage Goyard and Louis Vuitton steamer trunks from the turn of the century, which are my babies. Ill try and get some pics of them up soon. One of them, we use for my daughters toy chest, which is pretty cool. I also have a collection of English alligator and sterling silver small leather goods, assorted knick knacks etc. Cigar holders, flasks, desk sets, gentlemens accessories... that sort of thing.
