So I was just minding my own business today... thrifting, finding nothing. The usual. And I was about to leave the store, but my friend texted me and wanted to make plans. Since it was hot, I decided to have the text conversation indoors, rather than roast in my car. So I sat down in one of the chairs for sale and texted him for 10 minutes to figure out what we were going to do.
Then I got up. And started to head for the exit, but I saw a new rack. What's this?! A new rack, emerging from the back room, with clothes I have not yet seen?! Alright, so I took a look. Half of it was crap, but the other half looked like this:
Hmm. This has potential, I thought. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Next was another hickey freeman jacket, this one dual vent and tagged 100% camel hair. Sweet pattern, low price, so I grabbed it.
Now this one intrigued me. I could tell it was well made, and this is where i started to get excited. Sho nuff, saint andrews.
So I quickly yanked it and moved to the next jacket. Oxxford crest! Sweet. Orphaned suit jacket technically, but dual vent and ticket pocket, so should make a great sportcoat. On to the next!
This one got me really excited. Dark green, silk, dual vent, and what brand? Cifonelli? WTF.That was unexpected.
Then I felt something sick. Something so balla that I almost threw down the other jackets I was carrying to inspect it. Could it be... YES
Side vented and in perfect f'ing condition no less! How could this get any better?!?! Oh... like this
100% silk brioni sportcoat, mint and recent? yes please I think I'll take that too. And then there was one last thing at the end of the rack.
A lonely oxxford sovereign cashmere pair of pants and vest, without their comrade jacket. Alas, despite going in the back and looking through the rest of the clothes waiting to come out, I couldn't find it. But maybe it will turn up. Total cost: around 100 bucks.
^^^ I woke up to this and tore the blankets off my wife and flipped my desk!
edit: I also flipped my desk over DM7's 5 trashbags of freshly laundered and pressed Turnbull & Asser shirts, but it was late and had been a long day. But still flipped, nonetheless.
