Fairly exciting day today...first off, every Goodwill in the Denver metro area was 50% off everything. I take this to mean that they are clearing out lots of stock in prep for new donations/refreshing the racks, but the ability to score things that are potentially priced too high for a modest sum is awesome.
I passed on my first Brioni...it was the "Roman Style" sub-heading. DB, terrible creme color, floppy metal buttons, one of which was missing. Epic, overcompensating lapels. Right next to it was an Armani Collezioni, which I also left as it was also underwhelming.
That said, I'll start with the triumphant score. Recent Hickey Freeman...staple color...Loro Piana....super 130s. No pants, but the tag makes no mention of a drop. 44L. Up for sale or trade for you long torso'd folks.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Can anybody decipher a date on this tag?
An assortment of shirts, some of which have a little wear shown. Zegna Su Misura FC, Canali FC, Zegna casual windowpane, Piatelli for Barneys FC (ink stains I'm going to try to attack with oxclean/vinegar)
I tried to get a quick shot of some of the pulled threads on the Zegna Su Misura, but you can only really see one off in the distance there. Do a few of these totally ruin this shirt?
Two Harris Tweeds
And these mintish Pivetta hiking shoes. These are quite ubiquitous as people have been tossing them aside for lighter weight, techier gear. A shame considering these are just as competently made as any dress shoe.
And I picked these up based on the color and suppleness of the leather.
