Once again, very nice find tonylumpkin. Lobbs are rare enough, but a pair which doesn't appear to have ever seen a foot (even fleetingly) and in a popular size with trees is something else entirely. I agree with the others that there may well be more at the thrift.
Here are a few of my latest finds.
Navy blue micro-herringbone Kiton suit; 3/2 sb w/ twin vents. I found the jacket first, but it took me another thirty minutes or so to find the pants which were priced separately. In my least tolerant moments I hate this sort of lazy behavior on the part of the thrift store staff. But then I remember just how much laziness is our friend. A very useful suit, I suppose, if a bit sedate. The price, however, was right. Let's just say I got back some change from a 10 and a 5.
Ferragamo Tramezza lizard loafers. Well, why not? I actually really like these shoes. They're the first Tramezzas I've seen in person and they do seem to be very nicely made. Classic Florentine split-toe style and the lizard is a nice twist.
Finally, a couple of T&A bespoke shirts. I really like checks. These have the classic three-button cuff and are nicely darted in the back. Dig the pattern matching. As luck would have it they fit great. The first one is Sea Island cotton. $4.25 each.
Fall is in the air. Happy thrifting everyone!
Now this is what I aspire to. Not just the one time flash in the pan, but truly wonderful finds on a consistent basis. Well done!
I found a black 70% silk 30% cotton dress polo by Harolds today at my southern thrift in nashville in excellent condition, they have a gray wool suit there also but they want 80 bucks for it because its brand new by evan picone (sorry about the spelling)
Got my best ebay buy yet in the mail today. A tweedy 90/10 S120 wool/cashmere blend, nice and soft, with a brown field and light blue windowpanes by Chester Barrie. Nice buttons, nice handwork on the buttonholes, and just about perfect fit. Advertised as NWOT; I don't know that this is true, but nothing about the condition of the jacket suggests otherwise.
Thrifting has been very slow lately, but today was a little better.
