Got that wrong...It's tagged 50L but measures like a 50R

100% Camelhair, Beige with Peach windowpane.

I'm a huge fan of Arctyrex, Patagonia, Mammut, etc. I'm even a big fan of Lululemon. Great stuff! The fabrics are amazing and if you can get them on discount at REI or in their brick and mortar shops, it's a great deal if you don't want to wait around for them to pop up in your local thrift shop.
Uh oh.....
I'll get my meager find in for today before the wave hits:

Yeah, I had an Arcteryx jacket while I was living in Michigan, that thing was THE SHIT! Got shitfaced new years and left it somewhere :(. I would like to get another some day soon, although I don't envision many popping up in Arkansas. You have any in stock Nataku?

God damnit. How do all the damn good shoes come in a size bigger or under than mine? A 44 is like a 10.5 right? Do Europeans not have a size between 9 and 10.5 damnit!?

Here's hoping DM has something for me in his next post.
post #37627 of 102663
44 should be closer to an 11 I believe.

I have a very similar pair (same longwing pattern, though their lower grade) in roughly the same color, though not pebble grain, so I'm probably gonna pass. Sorely tempting though, if those were in a dark brown or black... I suppose they could be dyed...

By the way, the price on the Oxxford linked in my sig is a complete shot in the dark, so if anyone wants it, throw a number my way. I try to price stuff to the market, but as long as a make something back I'm good.

I also found a modern cut 36S on that trip, though that's a Botany 500, which is apparently a MW brand these days. Bought it anyway (for myself), it's a nice color. If I remember to take a picture, I'll be in a suit wednesday, and probably that one. A couple ties too.

 

Always nice when you pick up impossible to find 36S stuff in your size!!! I have yet to hit that pot of gold, even for something like Botany 500 censored.gif

BTW cptjeff picked up the Florsheims after all. Nice of you to give him first dibs.

Is anyone else having trouble with the spoilers??? For the last week or two, every time I try to make one it puts it at the top of the post and then I can't move it.

post #37632 of 102663

to make a long, epic, story short, there will be no pictures tonight.

 

the long, epic, story:

 

This morning I picked up 5 Brioni blazers, and an RLPL suit.  I was content to end my thrifting day there.

 

I had some free time about an hour ago, and stopped by one of my stores.  I just bought exactly 100 shirts.  Over 90 of them are Turnbull & Asser.  The rest are a mixture of Hilditch & Key, Fray, and who knows.  All of them were freshly dry cleaned.

 

I rushed to my temporary abode.  My plan was to take pictures with my phone, then come to the cafe that I am currently at to post the pictures.  Unfortunately, they were painting with some spray thing...  I made two trips to haul all of these shirts up to my room, and nearly died.  I knew my air was running out, so I pulled out my phone, and snapped pictures of the bags, and a few labels.  Unfortunately, in my hurry I forgot my phone charger.

 

Tally of the haul:

5 Brioni Blazers

1 RLPL Suit

90+ Turnbull & Asser Shirts

10 unknown shirts

post #37633 of 102663

PICS OR GTFO.

These posts are meaningless without pics for bragging, and if you want to make them available to us - if that ever happened in reasonable terms- then meaningless without pics or sizes. I know you are very young and all but this is getting to be tiresome.
