First - a vintage A&F suede jacket with PIMP lining... size 42L. This was too epic to leave - I figured in a 42L somebody else would see it that way too!

I passed up the usual items that are nice but just too pricey, and found a lovely BB navy blazer in a unique material (pics to come) that I know I have passed up at least a half dozen times because of price, but the tag is missing this time. From my experience this is almost always a good thing, especially in this store because every single item is individually priced. I grabbed it and moved to the ties and found a t PINK, then moved to the other rack of shirts. About 3/4 the way down I find a nice Ermenegildo Zegna, grab it, and there's another next to it, and another, and another...someone cleaned out their closet. 13 in total, all with dry cleaning tags. Left 4 behind that were ugly with damaged buttons. The rest are pretty ace. They gave me the blazer with the missing price tag for about 65% off the original price, based on my estimate. The shirts were not standard GW prices, so I went for a reasonable bulk discount and she politely obliged, which took about 20% off the total of the shirts.

 

Pics or it didn't happen!

On the way back from a doc's appointment, I stopped in a regular haunt. As I went through the same stuff I've looked at over and over, some shimmering blue Loro Piana goodness drew my eye.

Snagged some decent ties today - my first Rubinacci and a NWT Canali as well as a nice Polo.



Medium Helly Hansen Rain Poncho



Also a Zegna silk and wool sport coat euro 54L


And this GB Sportelli Shetland Sweater - anyone know anything about this brand? Seems quite nice and well-made.

I think if something fits this well, you have to rock it.  The question really is, where do you rock that to?

Best part - there was a "manager's special" on all ties, except for ones marked up to 5.99 and 7.99 - you know, such gems as a fugly Nautica and a Brooks Brothers 346 with a stain icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I was tempted to take a picture of the receipt, too: $5.

This day keeps getting better and better. Wait -- I forgot about the stock market. Nevermind.

you sure that's not an orphan? an AC suit in that same material was at a thrift near me for a few months but it was unvented and had lots of pulls.

Wear it when you would be outside in the Fall. Apple picking, flea markets, sporting events that don't require a "go team" look... It looks good.

Good question, hadn't thought about it. The material is a rather coarse wool/cotton brown twill and it's much easier for me to imagine it as a SC instead of a suit.

 

Here's the tag; would there be any clues in it?

I found a couple of things today. Not pictured is the RL Polo OCBD for my 6 year that thinks my ties are now "our" ties. There was a another RL Polo contrast cutaway collar with french cuffs that I may pick up for him. Size 6T it was a pretty crazy shirt for a 6 yo. If any of you bankers want your kid decked out get at me.
