Vintage snapback... And the official FINA water polo game ball seemed so out of place in CO that I had to grab it.

It's a Milanese-style buttonhole, which is unique because it doesn't have visible knots in the silk twist used to sew it, which makes for a smooth, shiny appearance. It's just an obscure detail you usually only see on obscure, high-end Italian suits.

Don't know how you guys do it. I suspect location has something to do with it; either I'm hitting the wrong spots, or my town is full of people who wear clothes from Costco and Superstore. Since I've started lurking here I've been looking more at labels to see if I ever come across anything even remotely valuable, and the best I've seen is a BB awfully-patterned 1818 with holes and a pair of piss-stained EZ pants.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm going to keep thrifting, as I don't have the cash flow to up my wardrobe game at retail, but DAMN it's tough watching these hauls sometimes.
