I did go back the next day - no sign of the shoe, goddammit!

I also had to try on that Bailey & Weatherill suit. How often will I get a suit made by a respected and departed English tailoring house, especially in the '60s rock star style that I love so much? Alas, the pants were WAY too tight for me. Any skinny guys interested can ping me, and I'll pick it up if it's still there the next time I'm in.

Again, that's an insane find!

Someone must have cleaned out Grandma's house and dumped the books from her bookshelf into a GW box without even thinking twice.


As for me, just one thing found today, but that's ok. This is quite possibly the nicest and most beautiful tie I've found thus far.

I've found some cool coats lately too which is weird for summer. Check out this awesome vintage loden jacket made for burberry:




But this is the best! MINT navy hickey freeman flight coat. You just don't see these, like ever. It survived 3 rounds of mark downs too, at a store I rarely make it to.




Found a bunch of shoes lately too but that's enough pics for now, kinda overloaded the thread.

I couldn't agree more! Have bought thrift items for picky executive types in my own family, and was surprised one of them bragged about his $2 sport coat while on a major business trip with colleagues. I get an absolute thrill from looking great (IMHO) in the results of my treasure hunts, and usually don't spill the beans except to the like-minded.

Great find on the flight coat. It is in great condition considering it is probably 30+ years old.
