I've been wondering whether it's morally wrong to do this for a while.  I picked up a bespoke suit with a dry cleaning tag in from just the week before and it had a name & mobile number on.  Since this same female donor also donated another similar suit (mashed condition) i'm interested to know why/is anything else going, although i feel like a mobile number is pretty intrusive!  Is there a Barney Stinson Bro Thrift Code outlining such boundaries?

Man, that sounds like the beginning of a bad horror movie....

Would you want a call from someone saying they bought that coat you dropped off at Goodwill a few weeks ago, and PS you left your phone number inside, and oh, would you like to meet?

Go with Best Dressed, but being on styleforum your answers will probably be a little biased.

Not super great, but I scored 7 pairs of Pantherella OTC wool socks for $8/each. Best price I've been able to do in quite some time. The woman who checked me out was like "wait... $8 for a single pair of socks??"

Ha, I had to do a search for escorial and ran across the thread where you crossposted this photo.  This poster was definitely the highlight:

Theres definitely a difference between a just "wool", super 120, 150, 180, cashmere or pure escorial. If you looking for softness go try a pure cashmere, or a super 150's flannel fabric... Way softer, & finer, period. Regular wools or 120's are just bit more flexible looking fabrics, nothing much special about them, but real lightweight. But if you are looking for finer fabric, yes not as "soft - feeling" but real "finer looking" & a "finer quality fabric" a super 180's fabric its real the deal, and how about a pure escorial? well again, super 180's fabrics are not really the most softer fabrics in the world, and pure escorial is not the exception however, just to begin with the way a pure escorial wool is intertwined? is like comparing a damn Rolls Royce with a BMW. super 180's are pretty much the highest quality of how the wool is treated and intertwined. But a pure escorial has way more artisan craftsmanship above most wools you've heard even super 180's. Is not about touching something with your hand? is about "feeling it" when you wear it, you totally feel the difference, and yes again because the fabrics are way finer being wrinkle-free is one attribute that pure escorial has. I have 3 escorial sport coats and 1 escorial dress pants? I tell ya, those dress pants? are my favorite, "0" wrinkles, and son, i had them 18 years ago, you think Zegna, or any other brand had come up with the fines of making dress pants that dont go wrinkled without being polyester or any other cheap fabric mix now you find for 20 bucks on any apparel store? 18 years ago? son, wrinkled free began like 6 years ago?, brioni's been making wrinkled-free unintentionally without really noticing more than 20 years ago "now the call it wrinkled free? which is a mixed of cotton & cheap wool? Go on ebay and check up escorial wools by brioni, you can really tell the difference if you have keen eye its really worth it you can hit up a nice deal
