It is a good feeling when you see the second one and realize that this could go on for a while. I once hit a row of five 3 roll 2 sport coats bunched together: Brooks Brothers, Norman Hilton, J Press, Southwick, Chipp.

Woo, found my first "7" fold. Not really my color, sadly- perhaps ebay? PM if it strikes your fancy.

Today I found a silk pocket square, 2 cotton pocket squares, and 3 bowties. The striped tie is Ralph Lauren, the polka dot tie is by Green Shag which is a bespoke place here in Toronto, and the double sided plaid/lavender tie is by a company called Dolbeau. All this at a Value Village for $9

I usually never see them either. Especially bow ties as nice as these. The other day I found a black one with white polka dots as well. I wear bow ties quite often so it was a good week.

Hell of a weekend with some MTM DB SCs that actually fit me (!!!) and some nice cable & co loafers (I know, I know, they ain't Lobbs but they are very nice fake alligator and fill a very open gap in my wardrobe, I'm getting them vibram overlayed and the works b/c I needed them until a more rare/awesome find comes along to replace them) but... more of a question here: E. Marinella ties...easy to come by, or a major score? I found one in very good condition, $3.99 at the local Savers...not a fake. Again, nice tie, fits a gap in my tie collection "color wheel" and beats the crap out of the thin izod/beene/nautica stock I see around here most often...is Marinella a score? (also, side discussion, I see lots of aquascutum ties around here...worth their weight in one dollar billes??? I snag them for the tie drawer)

Dig mentioned something about not buying a jacket and hiding it. Horrible what my Mother has made me. So frugal that I had a BB made in Italy flannel shirt/jacket in my hand and I put it back (hid it) to get it half price a few days later. Of course, it was gone. Pathetic. I did score a nice plaid suit, Neiman Marc. label) in my size...at the tailer now..will post fit pic.

If anyone finds any vintage cycling clothing please PM me. I'm looking for older wool jerseys and jackets like this:

Thanks

Definitely. Well made and a bit on the pricier side at retail. I've only found one in my 8+ years of thrifting.

Interesting w/e. We hit the Filenes today here in Columbus and they had a large rack of "desinger ties" at $59.99 with an additional 50% off. They had an insane amount of Polo (made in Italy) and RLPL. What I ended up getting was a Tom Ford and a Dolce Gabana. They also had a Prada but I wasn't sold on the quality. I also picked up a new Southwick suit there. They had a few crazy Italian brands I wasn't familiar with (They must have got a big shippment in from Barney's)

We also hit a GW up here. Found a Norman Hilton for $12.99 that I passed on.unfortunately (my size). It just showed a bit too much wear in the jacket (not sure what you call it when it looks like the material has slightly bubbled). My wife got a brand new pair of Stuart Weitzman's for $25.00.
