Found a few things, no pics yet.
VTG Big E Levi's jacket...probably mid 60s. Tag is faded, but fits near a 38
Ancient J. Riggins for Sears Mackinaw cruiser-style jacket. The lining has seen better days, but one of the nicer pieces of vintage outerwear I've picked up. No size tag, but again fits like a 38
Two pairs of Zanella Bennett, one of which is LP Super 130s. 31 x 32
Ridiculous Brooks Brothers FU unlined striped seersucker sport coat. 40R
VTG Issey Miyake women's shirt. Medium
Oh, and here's a SW&D thrift fit. Flame on. Admittedly, it is a bad photo.
Cooper down bomber (from rayxlui)
Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme vest (thrifted)
Issey Miyake Men hidden placket button down shirt (thrifted)
Helmut Lang waxed denim (from mainy)
Buttero side zip suede boots (eBay)

Maybe I am missing something. Is it a strategy for professional thrifter to look like they have no fashion or style sense at all? specially the ones hunting for luxury high ends goods.
I personally wear a Brioni tux when I thrift to show people what's what.
First off, I wanted to give BIG THANKS to Nataku for the shirt. It fits perfectly and looks great, and it's just what I needed. Until I can repay the favour, I'm putting a curse on every Minnesota flipper for ya.
Another thrift fit. Off to X-mas lunch with some people I used to work with.
Everything thrifted or SF acquired except for the shirt. It's Zara Man but the nicest ecru I've seen.
Jacket: Franco Ercole in Brooklyn
Tie: no name knit
PS: no name ivory silk
Denim: LVc 501s (from barrelntrigger)
Shoes: Florsheim (from GMMcL)
Love the top, love the bottom (with a bit less cuff) but together they seem incongruous. Some slacks would have made this fit great.
Yes - send directly to me.
So tempted to feed the troll....
Huge thanks to Bytor13 for an awesome secret santa gift....3 sweet and seasonally appropriate tartan ties, a PRL tie with sartorial illustrations that is awesome, Barbour cords and an amazing pair of Cuccinelli cords. Fit pic upon return from the in-laws and a trip to the tailor.
Surely not?! This guy was the consummate but scummy pro I mentioned earlier, the one who relished in spreading misinformation, using Frenchy-like strong-arm tactics, blockading aisles and deploying decoy ties. He gave me his eBay ID but it didn't check out.
Dude, this is sublime. You look like a different person!
Dudes: Did I brag about these yet? I think I intended to but never did. Oh, and look at that: it's still 2012. Cheapies. Eligible.
Zegna blue suede, almost nwob. Keeping. (Click to show)

Aaaaaand these. (Not Cheapie eligible, but still) CrapTon of Jermyn Street and other decent ties -- again, ALL ONE STORE (Click to show)
Why? Were you in PA today? Did you see me out? I try to look as misfortunate as possible.
