Thanks everyone, I haven't had a decent day in awhile, so this was fun.

Does that Isaia have basting stitches?
lulz it has the remnants of basting stitches in the shoulders, and the ones on the sleeve have been removed but the buttons are still in the bag in the pocket. I believe the the previous owner just never got it altered, but I guess it is possible they might have worn it once or twice like that facepalm.gif

I was stunned to see CNH anything in my neck of the woods. Let alone the Ricci, LP and Bamford. I am guessing most of it was "imported" donations.

I left a shell Alden Longwing at the Sally because I could not find its mate. And what did I find at a small independent thrift on the other side of town?!? The other shoe plain.gif

Also I snagged some B&L Wayfarers from the giant basket o'glasses on the counter. I know they are old, but can anyone give me a clue how old? These are the only markings on them......

If you are in the Chicago area and want a score, pm me as I just left behind some super tasty stuff:

Oxxford Tux
Oxxford Cashmere jacket
Corneliani Suit
Corneliani blue blazer, totally unconstructed and pick stitched everywhere.
Bunch o custom made stuff too.
Canali Shirts
Shit load of CT shirts, in pristine shape, neck of 16.
I cant wait till I have money in my pocket again (soon, signing a new contract and will be back to work soon!).

I did buy a really tasty Canali dress shirt with hocky puck MOP buttons

damn I take it those are all the things you left behind?  Chicago must be a nice place to pick up pre-owned Oxxfords.

Ha - I noticed this with a separated suit before. I'm curious how this comes to be. I wonder if, after a death, people just leave things out (in bags that don't always match items) on a first-come-first-serve basis for thrifts.

First decent day in awhile yesterday... this is what passes for decent in my neck of the woods lately, anyway:

Dale of Norway sweater, only one side seam - there was another sweater there with NO side seams whatsoever, which I had never seen before - it was clearly a very high-quality piece, but there was no label on it and it wasn't my style at all. frown.gif
Chipp tie
Bills recent striped lining M2 flat-fronts 34

I had hoped things would pick up a bit locally as we swung into September and cooler temperatures, but September is almost over and still nothing. Glad to see you gents are having better luck, though!

10 pairs of Incotex - 3 are wool, 2 cords, 1 of the chinos is for PRL. [you know where I got these]. All my size; I may flip one or two i, but I kind of refuse to buy out an entire Daffy's and make a 300% profit, particularly when other SFers are certainly trying to get to those places too.

Keep an eye out in the Halloween consume racks at the thrift stores, folks. All the local thrifts are starting their Halloween departments around here. Lots of cool stuff gets put on there. I found a white silk dinner jacket from 1928 once and another year I found a tuxedo from 1909 in amazing condition for $5.

I would quite possibly kill to find a pair of those just hanging out in the B o'G but I know that my day will come. Introduced in 1952 and carried through to the mid 80's before a redesign.
Today, I passed on a slightly banged up pair of these priced at $8. Should I go back?

Thanks for the tip!

BTW...

I also found a Rubinacci tie, a Charvet tie and this Hickey-Freeman made in Italy Saddle Yoke Pullover Sweater in this color and size medium. I think it fits me a little large but I thought I could always give it to the previously mentioned brother in law who is similarly sized like me except he his about 4 inches taller. He's installing a digital HVAC controller in my SL this Sunday and I thought it would be nice as he is a sweater guy. OTOH, if someone here REALLY likes it...

350

Holy crap...it retailed for $225 and is sold out at the Sierra Trading Post for $99! Maybe I'll just keep it for myself.

Started this new hobby a few weeks ago and had no luck.  Then thanks to the many tips here.  I found 4 Zenga shirts!!

 

I was amazed at the quality.  And the nice thing about it is out of three that I picked up 2 fit !
