I've never seen the split rail gant line before. Definitely not vintage Gant and definitely not new. Which would land it in the crappy era of Gant. If it's cheap and seems like real leather, I would say pick up. Otherwise, Pass. Pretty cool piece though, would be interested if it were my size.
Thanks, Ken. I passed because they wanted 26 bucks for it. It was genuine leather and interestingly the collar was detachable to transform it into a traditional leather jacket. Even a little research showed little on that line so I am guessing it was not very successful.
No earth shattering finds for me, but I found some stuff that any of you may want for cost and or trade. I hate that feeling of not finding anything amazing so I feel the need to purchase something to make the drive or trip worthwhile.
First, giant shout out to TheBurnOut. Although seldom a poster here, he reached out to me through PM because he happened to thrift in my backyard. He is moving across the country and hooked me up with the list of thrifts he often hit and had luck with. Then, he texted me that he found a BB Fitzgerald SC and Lubiam 1911 navy suit in my size that he offered for trade for a few pairs of Pantherellas. As if the generosity wasn't enough, he handed me a box of shoe trees that he wasn't bringing with him. I am not sure if I am happy that there is one less high-end men's clothes hunter in this area or sad that such a great guy is leaving. Awesome showcasing of how generous everyone on this forum really is.

Lubiam Suit (N/A)
He also passed off this Woolrich Sweater in XL (available for free + shipping if anyone wants it)
Anyone know who makes Lands End's SC's? I picked this up because it fits well off of the rack and was $2. The wool is extremely soft and the jacket seems quality. The RN number pulled up Lands End so I'm guessing they make their own stuff. I was pleasantly surprised.
Picked this up if one of you has a serious need, its in pretty good condition. Its a pretty large Wenger rolling case. It apparently used to have a removable tote, but that wasn't there. Available.
Hit up my local Marshalls. They rarely have anything nice, but had this Corneliani 46R Super 150's charcoal pinstripe (unvented, though). This is the only suit I have ever seen there, and it was placed with the sweaters. Random. Available.

Really nice condition Bally Wingtip Suede Loafers
Picked this up but am now not sure if it was worth it. I have no idea how to clean suede and this stain is pretty bad. PRL size large.

Had picked up almost the exact same Burberry 6/2 peak lapel blazer before. Older logo but the ebay bidders went nuts on the first one because of the buttons.
Brooks Brothers POW jacket (possible an orphan). Size 39R. Available.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
