From the one that got away file. I put back a nice Canali tie today after discovering a couple of fairly minor, yet annoying, snags. Alas. Tomorrow is another day (and a visit to a promising thrift store). j, this might be a good thread to pin, although I know things are sort of crowded up there.
I have a similar one from today but the good side of it - I found a really nice tan cashmere jacket (a 40s or R, can't remember) last time I was at this store, and put it back due to some "stuff" found on the cuff. I looked at it again today, thought maybe I could get the "stuff" out, but noticed the real MOP buttons. I figured, even if I can't get it clean, a set of real MOP jacket buttons this nice is probably worth $10. Also got a black harness leather belt with detachable brass buckle, very well made and soft, fits me, $1. And a RLPL light blue plaid LS sport shirt with overcheck, unfortunately in XXL, but a cursory glance looked good, again either way I can steal the buttons - $5. As for pinning, I don't think it will be necessary - I plan to bump the thread to the front page as much as possible, and I expect you all to help me.
