The Wifey and I have to go to France to attend a wedding of one of her friends, then another friend of ours is getting married in Natntucket in September. Luckily I found a pair of Murray's Toggery Shop Nantucket Reds in my size a few months ago to complete my WASPy Jew look.

 

 

 Nice! We're planning a trip to Halifax for my brother-in-law's wedding, then on to France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy (I'm hoping for Liechtenstein and Germany, but that might be a stretch).. There will be much cycling, mountaineering/hiking and frolicking in the hills...

Bit of a dry spell for me, only found a few decent things:

 

Ties:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Psycho Bunny striped repp tie, Z Zegna skinny tie, PRL flannel tie, VV pig tie, Ben Silver regimental, Talbott vintage striped wool tie

 

The Psycho Bunny and Z Zegna are recent.  I don't usually pick up PRL or VV, but the PRL is a made in Italy wool/cashmere blend, and the VV is NWT.

 

A bag:

 

1000

Schlesinger leather briefcase--unfortunately, this had the prior owner's name in gold leaf on the other side of the bag.  I got the gold leaf lettering out, but the embossing is still visible from close distance, and there's a visible water spot where the name used to be (also a water spot at the bottom).

 

Vintage North Face made in USA blue Gore-Tex parka with detachable hood (size XL, available):

 

 

Some accessories for myself:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Sterling silver cufflinks made for a local jeweler and a pair of Brooks Brothers braces.

Some stuff. Way too little for as many stores as I went to today. Thrifting sick is going to catch up with me.

 

Regular Ralf Dry Selvage 32/34

 

These fit and are basically unworn, so I may get them hemmed, removing the boot cut at the same time.

 

 

 

Finally! 15 R.

 

 

 

60s Norman Hilton. Amazing jacket with MOP buttons. I'm pretty sure it's cashmere. 39 R.

There was another one, that was a little less nice, but still felt like cashmere, that had a dime-sized moth hole on the back of one of the arms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recent J Press navy blazer, 43 R. Missing the top button, but I bought it for next to nothing.

 

 

 

 

 

And which one of you lives in Atlanta and was focusing on ties this morning? Somebody was following me.

Okay, so this was from my one store yesterday. Definitely quality over quantity, but I'm pretty happy with it.  All about 21.5 p2p w/ 23 sleeves (facepalm.gif ) and (other than the Belvest) unvented.

Unfortunately, I need to sell the Kitons in order to finance an upcoming trip, but if anyone is really interested and wants to pay slightly less than Ebay prices, I would be happy to sell here. Sorry for such blatant spamming.

Yet another amazing haul! worship.gif

Looks like I was in LA at the wrong time!

I did this. Hopefully you have a good tailor who will understand when you ask them to taper the legs from the INSEAM, NOT THE OUTSEAM so you don't lose the selvedge. Mine did an amazing job and they look perfect, but my tailor is awesome and she understood what I was talking about and why, whereas the assistant I started out talking to was confused.

Anyone recognize the maker of this tag ? Made in Italy for Brooks Brothers.
Thanks!

Something odd happened today...I was waiting on the tram when a guy walked by wearing a jacket that I recognized from one of the thrifts. Of course, he could have purchased the same jacket when they came out, but I doubt it. It was incredibly distinct and from the early '90s for sure.

Has that happened to anyone else? Recognizing someone else's purchase from a thrift store??
