I'll go ahead and nominate myself, with a recent find of mine!  Best part, jacket is staying for personal use, even though I could certainly make immense amounts of money off it.

 

Deerskin Leather - Butter soft

Cashmere / Wool Lined

MINT COND

How is anyone not nominating the guy with the NWOB John Lobb cowboy boots that retail for $15K? IMO, he should win.

I nominate Troika's Arnys Forestiere. :drool:

 

Did some reading the model started in the late 40's. How often do they update it or how often do they re-release it?

I know it's generally bad form to talk about how much you paid, and how much you sold it for, but I wonder if it would be more appropriate to include that info in this thread?


The hickey freeman overcoat, a few pages back, is beautiful.  But my jaw dropped when he posted how much it sold for....

It was posted under my username, but he found them.

Huge S/O to my roommate Centuar1, who found the two biggest hitters.

Speaking of A&S finds - how about the thrift synergy award for eddievddr10 and myself finding two A&S tuxedos from the same donor on the same day in two separate stores?
