However, the last time I was at a particular store, they wanted $12-14 for the Sid Mashburn and Inis Meain shirts. Fuck that...

I will be back at that store tomorrow. I will let you know what they have. They had a couple of All Saints Spitalfields at around the same price.

May was my best month ever in terms of eBay $, but so far thrifting in June has blown, until today.

Last Wednesday I did 5+ hours, twelve stores and all I got were these two ties.


Frustrated, I decided the next day I'd hit a route I've never done and always wanted to do. The plan: 10 hours total, 200+ miles of driving, 18 stores. Well...that was the first and last time I'll ever do this route. What a fucking disappointment. The first five stores are in a better city and where I got everything but a tie that I've already given to a friend. That's right, it took me 7 hours to hit thirteen stores and all I got was one fucking tie. baldy[1].gif

RLPL (15.3 x 33, french cuffs, Made in the USA)
Zegna shirt. 17.
Ledbury shirt. 16.5


Ferragamo womens cashmere turtleneck
Carrott & Gibbs bowtie and cummerbund set


Canali suit. Dual vents. Flat front. 40R.


Today I had a few minutes to kill before taking my brother to the airport. These are from today. Two stops.

Local store's single breasted camel hair polo coat. Fully canvassed. Gorgeous pick stitching. Hand sewn buttonholes. NA as I'm sending it to my brother in Denver.


BB Fitzgerald summer navy blazer. Made in Thailand. Fully canvassed. Half-lined. Center vent. 43R.


Lastly, my greatest suit purchase ever. Only my second Kiton anything. The first was a tie about five years ago. Kiton 100% cashmere suit. 44L. Dual vents. Pleated pants. Paid full price at consignment, but it was still very reasonable. Ends up being less than 1.5% retail.

Brown & Church. I've never heard of them before but man is this very Marinella-esque.

Anyone care to take a shot at the first letter and last name of this artist? I'm thinking.... L. Poole? A. Poole?

first time with a Cucinelli, the inside fabric tag list this as a xxl, however the chest is 22' p2p (which makes it my size either way) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Legit. XXXL US. They run MAD small so that is probably close. I have a suede Bomber that is a XXL and it is roughly a 42-44.

Not to mention that I see better stuff at the average goodwill than the entirety of that site.

Anyone have a need for AE Park Aves in 9.5D? (Very) dark brown and burgundy. The burgundy ones are "polished cobbler" which is AE's term for corrected grain. Shiny though.
