What kinds of stores are the best for picking up quality garments? I have a GW and salvation army store by me but the best brands I ever find are Chaps and cheap department store stuff like that. Never find any quality shoes either. Should I be looking for the smaller thrift stores?

I grabbed this silky looking bespoke number, which turns out to be 50/50 wool & bamboo. Upon doing some research, it looks to be made by Coppley, a Canadian manufacturer. It's probably the best fitting jacket I've found yet.

Also, this Edwin Nazario, which I think is an orphaned jacket. It was so soft and delicately finished that I figured I'd take it for a few bucks anyway. I can't seem to find much info on this make. It fits me pretty well, except the armholes seem unusually large for the cut of the jacket.

two Hermes ties and a Zenga for $5, one of the Hermes is a little beat up so it might go in the trash.

One of my all-time thrift store peeves hit, again, today with the shopping-cart crowd, this time piloted by a husband-wife team that glared and silently moved their "treasures" a couple inches out of the way so that I could get by, just barely. In their wake I found a pair of Church's shell tassle loafers. The downside, they'd been re-soled, but the work is well done and the uppers should polish out fine, which I'll be doing this afternoon whilst watching football. Not bad for three bucks.

The icing came at the cash register, where Mr. and Mrs. Shopping Cart were right behind me in line. When they opened up a new register and asked for the next person in line, these pigs rushed over so they could go before me, a man with one pair of shoes in his hands. And they had an overflowing cart.

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered...
