Just got back from a road trip to Kentucky... came away with three observations:
1) the average dress down there - or at least what ends up at thrift/consignment - is much better
2) there are TONS of shops! And they're relatively close together! Holy cow!
3) #1 and #2 = slow but steady finds!
Here's the list:
Recent BB polo
MAYBE a Robert Graham shirt... we'll see how my wife reacts when I wear it
Zegna sport shirt
Made in Canada no-maker-listed pants, 95% super 140's, 5% cashmere
Bill's Khakis Vintage Twills - the ones with the striped inner waistband fabric - two pairs. First of that kind I've seen, so was elated they fit perfectly without alteration!
Recent H. Freeman & Son wooden broad-shouldered hanger
Recent J. Press hanger... now when am I going to find something to PUT ON IT?
NWT(!) Zegna Sport polo, L
Recent J. Press shirt, 15/32
Bill's Khakis, waist 32... in M3 fit. Never seen M3 before, even at stores that stock Bills - wish they were my size so I could try the M3 out.
Oxxford Azure Isle pants for Neiman Marcus... I think these may have been orphaned - side tabs, no belt loops. If anyone in the Louisville area finds a corresponding jacket let me know and I'll give you the pants at cost.
Robert Graham M
Robert Graham L
Canali shirt, 16us 42it - what is with 42it shirts?! I've got tons of them... more than any other size. Bonus: it came with Robert Graham collar stays that'll go nicely in a shirt to sell on ebay.
BB Made in England "Peal" brown suede chukkas... worn once or twice, 9D
Ferragamo Tramezza brown captoes, 10D
All in all, pretty productive for just two short afternoons. Prices in some cases were higher than I was used to paying, but it'll work out. Thanks to those in PM who helped out with this trip - you know who you are!
