Oh, you meant the coat. It had a few moth holes in the sleeve that I found after the fact.

 

Son of a bee sting! Strange, I just re-inspected the whole thing and could not find any evidence of moth mastication. Could be there, I was pretty giddy when I found it in the women's section, especially since it is s perfect fit.

 

And not to worry, nothing other than the BB camel hair was found at that location (not even the Prada shoes actually).

 

Forgot to mention - picked up a pair of PRL charcoal flannels (flat front, coin pocket, button fly), marked 32x32 and available.

I haven't found much this year. The thrifts seems to have had a big donation from an american department store or something, BB, Orvis, J.Crew, Lands End, Woolrich etc. NWT and NWOT, but haven't found anything nice in my size.

 

Polo wool

 

Our Legacy cotton

 

Glengarnock cotton wool

 

John Varvatos Star cotton NWT

 

Lacoste and Rose and Born super 100's suit. Anybody know who makes it? bad photo...

 

 

 

Not in perfect condition but pretty cheap

Small hole right at the edge of the sleeve


That is extremely cool. I have a soft spot in my heart for Oxxford, even though they don't sell that well. That one is a really neat piece of both companies' history.

That logic doesn't really work on my wife.

 

She thinks I buy way too many things, but I justify it by saying a) that's not really true b) the vast majority of it is purchased at thrift, or slightly higher, prices and c) I didn't spend any money at all on clothes (well, that's an exaggeration, but you get my point) until about two or three years ago.

 

When those lines of reasoning don't work, I just blame Cotton Dockers.

 

And speaking of Mr. Dockers...

 

Thrift fit in the wild from the ever-romantic, ever-Valentinesy Waffle House:

 

 

 

Here's a tip. NEVER get the steak. It tasted like a salt lick. A cold salt lick.

Since a few of you were interested in more deets on the APC coat, here it is. It's easier for me to post here than respond to each individual PM. If it works for you and your interested, get at me, else it is destined for the bay, because it's to small for me.

100% wool, tweedy look, but very soft.

Measurements:

Shoulders - 17"

Pit to pit - 22"

Sleeves - 26.5"

Length - 36"

The holes aren't super noticeable due to the color of the sleeve lining... Also they're small and probably wouldn't be horrible to have re-woven:

both on left sleeve

 

 

 

Also, there is another CB from the same guy still (a gray striped orphan) over by the mirror on the men's side. It's funny that the best of his stuff is what's left, the Zegnas donated along with it was the oldest tags I've seen, and it showed in style/materials.

 

A few firsts yesterday, pics when there's more light.

LOL, who would order a steak from a Waffle House? That's like ordering waffles at a steak house.

I imagine many of us get this reaction. It's actually a principal reason why I sell on eBay - my wife can't complain at anything I keep (or pick up from you guys or the bay) if I'm net positive, which I am by a descent margin. I also placate by saying it's merely fun money for babysitting, etc. and that seems to work. I just have to ensure that she doesnt start to see it is income, and thus want to save it or use it for the mundane.

 

Oh, and awesome outfit!
