Don't usually buy Bostonian

But when I do...

It was 'daddy day' for me today with my 8 month old. Checked my phone and told her a thrifted Kooples shirt had sold. Apparently the word 'kooples' is hysterical to babies and therefore I proceeded to say "KOOOOOPLES!" regularly throughout the day in what can only be described as a high-pitched, Indian man's voice. She was in fits. Awwww.

Haha, yesterday my wife was wearing a pair of Bean boots and a Lands End parka that I thrifted for her and she was like "look, thrift fit!" icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

A shoutout to @capnwes for the hookup on great pair of PRL English-made Chelsea boots! Truly a class act.

 

Unfortunately, they're too small. If anyone is interested in the same hookup, let me know! UK 8, fits like a US 8.5.

Is a Made in England Baracuta Four Climes trench coat with buttoned in wool liner anything. I know the G9 jackets are but didn't know.

Every time I find something of J. Lindbergh, I love it. Really quality overlooked stuff.

Someone tell me about Jaeger clothing. Found an made in England navy flannel SC in about a 44, and kopped, but do they have any cache? I've heard them referred to here in elevated terms, but I just don't know much about them.

Passed on this Corneliani sport coat for $25 because of the moth holes.  Good decision?  Looks like way too much damage.

You could fix it but the reweave would cost twice three times what you could sell it for.

Starting to lose steam. Haven't found anything decent in probably a month.

Aaah, persistence pays off.....Patagonia Retro-X fleece.





Or not. Damn you, Merona. ffffuuuu.gif

Super old Corn is a instapass especially at $25 a pop. I would kop the older stuff if it were tweed and has all the bells and whistles.
