Went and hit a couple places today. I'm just gonna assume that Mox and Henry Boogers are sucking everything up, because it's been pretty dry out there. Pics of the one thing I got today and the stuff I got yesterday later. Might be able to hit one more spot today, but it's been pretty disappointing so far. 

These are the limits I am referring to, and my motivation for wanting to list some so-so items and gather feedback while I'm building an inventory of higher quality items which I'll then be able to list restriction free. I do not have the nuanced brand knowledge that others here have when it comes to lines with certain brands, brands that I normally don't wear - this thread will continue to provide insight, tho. Thanks for the input.

Hit up 3 stores and all I have to show for it are 3 pairs of shoe trees. Lame.

Heh. Not I. Aside from the shoes, I haven't found anything noteworthy in weeks.

Not that I'm complaining about the shoe finds. I prefer those anyway.

Love it.  If it was 2 button, I would demand you let it go.

Some cool cufflinks:

Sorry though, I think these are too small for those of us with huge feet (!), I think the 75 in the side panel might be a size reference and that looks about right. It's raining tiny shells up here in MKE lately. (OK, two pairs, but up till now I usually found 12s and stuff)

Well... this is relevant to my interests...

Only chiming in to observe I HAVE the Val DB suit. Bought as an employee. Loved it then and now. Not made by Isaia, but it's still got great lines. Will post a thrift fit next time I wear it -- maybe tomorrow.

I don't care WTF it was, it gave me a massive, RAGING ... well, you know the rest; don't want the mods on my ass.
Srsly interested in hearing about my size.


Did a little flea marketing and thrifting today. A couple of Ebay fodder ties (Pink, Boss). Was centimeters away from buying several MCM and mission style pieces, but got cold feet at last minute. Also had my hands on a great 100% cashmere glenplaid piece until I realized that the buttons were on the wrong side. SHE WAS A MAN, MAN!

Anywho, here's today's thrift fit: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Shirt: Aeropostale, gift from HS girlfriend 20+ yrs ago
Tie: Hilfiger, Ebayed by me before I knew better
Denim: Eddie Bauer, with some customizing care of my bathroom remodel, thrifted by me
Time spent with daughters 1 and 2, priceless.

A wide-wale Orvis cord blazer... size 40R but fits me well, n/a

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part is that it was $3.98 + tax and I found a quarter in the pocket

 

Canali tan / blue glenplaid SC, 56 R EU available

Hickey Freeman micro-houndstooth SC slim 41 R, available

Got this clock for my place

 

NWT BB merino wool cardigan, XL with big smoked MOP buttons, available

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

The brothers of the blackwatch NOS flannel BB pants I found last week. These are also NOS vintage BB that are unhemmed and likely around 36 waist. Available

A decent pair of scotchgrain AE Becker's, size 9.5D, available pretty cheap if someone needs some decent beater / rain shoes. These are obviously pre-cleaning, etc.

That plus a couple things for me... not an exciting weekend

Here's the stuff I DIDN'T pick up

 

 

Anyone seen this before? This was a flannel plaid shirt. Is this cone mills like the denim?

 

Kinda cool desk. This ring a bell with any of you furniture guys?

 

Gray flannel Lubiam suit. Probably around a 38. Lubiam doesn't flip that well, so I left it, but it's been there a couple weeks so if someone wants it I could proxy. 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one made me sad... Really nice until I saw the moth hole

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

J Peterman doesn't seem to flip consistently. This Tiroler Loden was tempting though. Probably around a 46, I think, if someone is interested. Missing a couple sleeve buttons, but otherwise good, I think.

When you start finding the boxes of big sizes and wonder to yourself  "who the f would fit in this", remember the answer is very possibly me. Congratulations and I can only imagine the constant Christmas morning vibe every time you open a box. Your face probably hurts from smiling so much!
