I had my eye on a nice tan, wool Cricketeer for your beach wedding. Lapels the size of elephant ears. 36S. Built like a tank. Priced too high at $3.99.

Still kinda new to this, but found this
Found this old thing laying around in the womens section
2 pairs BB pants, Wool, black, brown. They're pleated, I don't typically like pleats but I think I can make these work.
Found this laying in the women section, had a few what seemed to be ink marks on the back shoulders. They came out after a simple wash though.
Some good finds today at lunch, a couple Andro's size...
a 42L relatively recent HF Collection suit, nice charcoal gray with subtle pinstripe
a pair of AE Park Avenues, black size 12D... in bad need of a shine but overall very good condition

A NIB pair of Rochester Shoetree shoe trees, size medium

I've thrifted a bit when in Omaha and always fund nice stuff, a bunch of Brioni shirts, T&A ties, RLPL shirts etc. Its makes sense, there's a lot of money in that town.
I think you'll find loads of Stafford stuff wherever you go, people just tend to only post when they find exceptional stuff.

BTW you started me on a shell cordovan addiction. As of this weekend I'm up to 3 pairs and only want more...
On a better note, Anyone know a fella who wears 52L ? I picked up a nice BB Silver Label Camelhair SC - Beige w/ Pink Windowpane today. Thought it might work for the engineer here at work, but it was a bit too large in the chest.
