Here's my contribution. (Yes, my pics suck. Too bad.)
You: GMMcL - Why are you wasting our time? Your finds have sucked lately?
Me: I know. I know. Been busy. And in a dry spell. But...
You: But nothing! Our time is precious! Dispense with the banter! Show the goods!
ME: Okey Dokey (Click to show)
You: But WTF is that? Those are just some jackets! We can't even see the labels!
Me: Yeah, I thought the same thing when I saw them on the rack. So I turned the labels and saw....
What I saw... (Click to show)
You: C'mon, dude. Not effing cool. That's just the same crappy stuff we all see.
ORLY? That's what I thought until I looked in the pocket (Click to show)
Yes, the right one is a corduroy suit. With real MOP buttons on the trou. And the right one is full canvas -- or at least feels like it. Real horn buttons on both. Built like tanks. Recent-ish. Fit me a-like a glove. (Dude's waist was smaller. Must not have realized the joys of craft beer. No matter; I have a tailor). May make the lighter cord available, though it does have some spots that will need some aggressive treatment.
But she didn't end there.

Seems to be dated 1951. Sick, sick, sick. No modern use, but still freaking cool. A few mending spots on the lining, but externally seems fine. Working button cuffs and handwork everywhere. Estimate it at a 40R with some wider shoulders
And finally: I think I recall that these are decent boots? Not a d*ck question; really asking the camping/outdoor/SWD guys. Their construction suggested they're good, as did the "Made in Italy" (not pictured) Warning: Spoiler!

I also found a nice vintage polka dot tie in my college colors (blue and gold, Go Bears!). And yes, Spoo, I will be wearing that.
Oh, and also: I bought 2 pr Pantharellas at a TJX while I was on my business trip. Charcoal knee length. Turn out to be much too long -- like a 12-13. Will proxy. PM to the left.
