This post might be a little bit longer than normal, so I appreciate you indulging me the bandwith.
First, today's finds. This weekend was my first finds in over a month. Like I said, bone dry lately.
In any case, two pretty recent BB sport coats. Beautiful heavy-ish brown wool in check patterns. Not my size, but any 48Rs out there can holler my way if they are interested. I haven't measured them yet, but there were about 7 total BB's donated. These were the only two with any flip value, but the others were just as nice, just older. All clearly donated by the same guy. To wit:
Note: These are both a bit darker IRL

Then, a glass tea cup, although it's been immediately repurposed for coffee. Nothing special at all, but I've been lusting after the nicer ones on Amazon, but I can wait for a holiday sale. Until then...Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just to maintain my thrifty credentials, the couch in the background was from my grandmother before she passed away a few years ago. I used to fall asleep on that thing every Thanksgiving. Best couch on the planet Earth. The coffee table was free from my old gym teacher (long story short: Mom is a teacher at the elementary school I went to, albeit not at the same time).
Second, and altogether different, last night was my law school's "law prom", better known to insiders as Barrister's Ball. I ended up leaving early out of boredom, and really it's not my scene. But it was fun to get dressed up and hang out with friends I don't see often enough anymore.
In any case, the suit is a recently thrifted BB pinstripe, and the shirt is the US BB from the recent Nordstrom Rack sale. Unseen is the pocket square, which was also thrifted, a chinon/silk combo, and my black AE Hales, also from NR. I realize this is waaaaay out of my trad-leanings, but Barrister's is usually an excuse (or a chance, take your pick) to do it up FU style.
