The only downside is living in Florida, I'll get maybe two and a half chances to wear it.

Well, if you ever decide to get rid of it, you know who to call. It does get mighty cold up here in the windy city. biggrin.gif

It appears that you'll be entering the Kingdom of Typhoid Jones...  lol8[1].gif

 

(J/K PM me and I'll give the rundown on some spots.  Congratulations on your son graduating from BU!)

It's good. It's a government/company town so you find a lot of stuff that govt workers wear to blend in. Brooks Bros, HSMs, John W. Nordstrom stufff along with the usual Nautica, C Klein dress shirts that are all around the country. Nothing flashy that you would find in NYC or even Philly. With the rise in the contractor class, I've seen a lot of dress casual stuff like Banana Republic and the like that is showing up in the thrifts. If you apply yourself, you can pull out the occasional canali and corneliani that some well heeled lawyer donated.

Rookie. biggrin.gif You throw your thrift finds into your bag in the backseat of your car immediately and when it is full and you still have 6 stores left to hit you thrift an additional bag to fill...

Not to be a buzzkill, but Boston is a pretty tough town for thrifting... lots of competition other than Mr. Jones

Holy Ivy, Batman. A coat like that should prompt a move north. Pay no attention to what DM7 found--that's the find of the month in my admittedly narrow-view world. Props for not selling it.

Oh just got a message from a friendly ebay buyer at 1 am in the morning.....
"Dear cpmac7,
Why are you so primitive and not shipp outside US, whit all problem your country have you shud hjelp your country with some exsport., shame on you
- XXXX"
Is this anyone in here? boxing[1].gif

 

Well, not me... the fact that you don't ship outside the U.S. might be bad for my size 34 legs, but it's good for my size way-too-small wallet.

 

I love the idea of someone being able to flawlessly spell 'primitive,' but not 'should.'

Actually, I vote option A, sell one of your cast-aside blazers, hopefully for something close to $40, then go back and get item c.

How to stretch the same money further. fistbump.gif

^^^ I would love to thrift a pair of customized Aldens with a retractable switchblade in the toe and a telephone in the heel.

This coat is the effing dopeness. I would hope for cold winters just so I could wear it more. So beautiful.
