There were two Navy Suits. The rest were pinstriped in various shades of blue and black. I dont know the size sorry. All I know is they were smaller than 44.

350 mile round trip home for the weekend. 10 thrift stores (would have been more, but time was a factor.)

 

Picked up: 

A Kenneth Mackenzie Harris Tweed Top Coat, nearly solid black.

An unbranded Herringbone Tweed Suit Brown

Several SCs (Brooks Brothers, 6 or 7 Harris Tweed, Christopher Dawes Tweed, Oxxford Onwentsia, 2 or 3 Burberry)

Etro Tie

My favorite was a very bold Houndstooth trench which is unmarked other than "Made in England" in the collar and "Gamekeeper" inside the front pocket.

 

Left behind 5 Alexandre Suits and 1 Alexandre SC all with generous amounts of pick stitching. I was in line with them until I realized they were all made in Egypt. Definitely still worth $20 each, but I lost most of my excitement when I saw it, so I put them back. They were at the Millersville MD GW if anyone lives close by and want to go pick them up.

 

Here are some of the pics.

Snagged these today. The insides are a bit worn, but the outside's in great condition. The shape caught my eye, and "Brooks Brothers" is just barely legible on the sole. Can anyone confirm these are Aldens for me?

It's so interesting to me the ebbs and flows of when the places near me get/don't have good stuff.  So I stopped by 2 spots I've tapered off a bit in going to because I haven't found much good stuff there the last month or so.  Both were pretty decent hits.  Ties first.  Nothing amazing, but nice since these 2 never have any good ties:

100_5124.JPG

 

BB Makers, Lavin, Zegna, Burberrys, Cromley & Finch (have since learned they're nothing amazing, but it's handmade in England, I love the design, and the silk is super soft so I like it).

 

 

Shirts, store 1:

 

100_5120.JPG

 

Battistoni (my first!!!), Barneys inhouse brand (made in Italy, linen/wool blend)

 

Pants:

 

100_5122.JPG

 

Orvis.  First pair I've seen, and they are super thick and really nice.  Seem like flannel, really nice pants overall.  I can see why their stuff is desired.

 

Shirts stop 2:

 

100_5116.JPG

 

PRL Cable knit tennis sweater.  Super thick, really nice.  Light staining that should come out with a wash/Oxy.

 

100_5112.JPG

 

All Pendleton.  The top 2 are wool, and the first ones I've found without any moth holes!  All in excellent condition.

And now, some good and some bad.  The good...

 

100_5106.JPG

 

Pink, Pink, Pink, Pink, Pink, Canali.  All are excellent, except...

 

...pit yellowing on all of them ranging from a bit, to nasty.  angry.gif.  This is my ultimate test to see if the Oxy method will work.  I left 3 behind that seemed unsalvagable.  Oxying tonight.  Here's hoping it works, because they're pristine otherwise. 

 

EDIT: Also got 2 Charles Trwyhitt's in nice colors for myself, and a PRL short sleeve polo not worth picturing.

Can anyone tell me more about this suit? Had it in the closet for a few years, picked up at a yard sale some time ago.  Starting reading styleforum and recognize the name. Has a rough wool feel to it and minimal lining(to my untrained eye).

All I have to say is they were real...and they were spectacular. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

And I don't think my wife who was in another part of the store would have appreciated me whipping out the smart phone.

Fuuuuuuuuuu.  I should have taken before pics.  They're already soaking as we speak.  confused.gif

 

They're all 15.5/34 (aside from one that's 15.5/33), though I don't believe they're slim fit.  I'll check again when I pull them from the soak before I go to bed.

I think your suppose to let them soak overnight....?

 

Step 3: Apply the strong solution generously to the stained areas. Place the shirts in a bucket (so that the solution doesn't flow away, or dry) with the stained areas towards the bottom of the bucket so they stay nice and covered in the solution. Allow to soak overnight. It can also help to use an old toothbrush and scrub the stained areas every hour or so, if you've got the time.

Sulka tie today, but that was it. Not in perfect shape, there's some minor fraying on the edges where it falls under the collar, and the label/keeper was partially torn and sewn back up. But still, a nice looking tie, and the important parts that people see are in perfect shape.
