EZ shirt buttons falling off? Not had that happen. Just started using washer bags and it takes a few seconds to put the shirts in them but saves lots of time on the other end of the process because there is no longer a need to untangle shirt sleeves after the wash.

Found me some fun things over the last few days including this lovely seasonal wool/cash Boggi sport coat in my size. Boom.

(It looks grey in the pic but it's actually a forest green colour. Curse of the quick and dirty pic)

/\ I have a weird love for Boggi stuff. I end up keeping everything I find of theirs.

I know what you mean. Decent quality with modern touches. It seems to come up in thrift fairly often too which is nice. I also found me a double breasted padded coat today (again in my size) which shouldn't work but is actually really nice. Also found a navy suit of theirs recently which was made by Caruso.

Nice find, here I think it fits pretty well (at most minor adjustments and it's perfect), keep it up. Nothing is better than finding something beautiful to add to your closet or home.

Thanks man. I've been finding quite a lot in my size lately (36) which is nice. Always need the sleeves shortening though due to T-Rex arms.

Only downside to finding things that fit you is that it eats into the profit!

I've seen Boggi tailored stuff made by Lardini. Nice stuff for the price point.

I have a different brag of sorts. My dad is a 21 year veteran of the Army having served in Korea and 3 tours in Vietnam. Sadly, he is in his final days and my two siblings and I are rotating out shifts to provide him with 24 hr bedside comfort and care at a local hospital. So, in other words, there are precious few clothing brags (and even fewer eBay listings). However, there are days like today that remind me of his strength (and razor-sharp wit). My father has been a chain smoker for over 60 years. No... he has no intention of quitting. Why would he? He asked a nurse this morning about a nicotine patch. She curtly replied, "Mr. Benson, you have COPD and you are STILL smoking?" Without missing a beat, he glared at her and said, "Ma'am, you are obese. Are you STILL eating?" Love this man... I only wish that I were half the man that he is.

I know nothing of stereo equipment so when I saw this in a cart I tried to move it to look at the stuff under it. Weighed like 100 pounds so I looked it up...

Holy crap lol

Thank him for his service. Those were wars not for the weak. I love talking to old timers like him it shows us how easy we have it.

I'd buy that at $50 all day long, considering it's in good shape and working properly.

So, I said I had to lay off thrifting, but c'mon.  In Houston with 2 hours between appointments.

POP

Cord suit

too nice of an orphan to leave.  Fresh rack too, if some nice Houston lurker want's to help me reunite it, or has the pants and wants the jacket.

But it turns out to be a pop on KIKIT by Maurice Sasson
