McSkeet jacket with a little enhancement so you can fully appreciate the pattern.
Not exactly an overcheck... What do you think I should call that, a feather check? Paisley check? Skeet check?

Check online because Value Village is having another 50% sale next week. Spend so much and they will give you a 30% coupon to use on a different day. found that Calgary wasn't good for luxury labels but for women's wear and jeans for the bay. Buck apiece not bad for jeans to flip.
i think i goofed on a lilith jacket. made in france. caught my eye, but it honestly, it didn't impress me, it seemed like a thin, boiled wool. Since it was a women's coat and I never heard of the label before, I passed. What are your guys thoughts on the brand?
Also picked up a Tori Richard shirt because of how much Fueco likes them. Don't know if I'll be able to pull it off, but the buttons are awesome and it fits pretty well! Unfortunately, my cellphone camera is not able to capture this awesomeness so you'll have to take my word for it!
I don't know if I'll pull the trigger on the Kiton. I probably should. I'll let it sit a bit, though I suspect it will be gone tomorrow.

Lots of frustration today, but I did find this orphan
I also found the darker, double breasted version, in suit form. Bought in 1987.
I'm considering going back tonight, but will definitely be back tomorrow to look for the pants. There was also an untagged navy DB with the same hallmarks, but I couldn't find the pants.
The orphan could be paired with jeans, right? Savile Row on top, Ed Hardy on the bottom?
EDIT: He's the CFO of a huge mortgage company. Figures.
Some recent stuff.
2x Hermes ties. Headed straight to eBay.

I picked up one identical to the tie on the right a couple of months ago. Nice.
Quick protip: if you buy a blazer/sport coat that might be an orphan, wait a few weeks before listing it. You never know when the 93% wool, 7% cashmere, made by Corneliani for Polo gray herringbone pants might show up...
My, that was specific.
I have never found Kiton. Or Tom Ford anything. Or solid gold buttons. Heck, I still haven't found the perfect navy blazer...
C'mon thrift gods...
you know what is a really staple item I have never found? a cashmere suit lined in 1000 dollar bills and fully canvassed with gold chain mail. DANG THOSE SHOULD HAVE POPPED UP ALREADY
Been really busy with work and haven't had much time, even for keeping up with the thread. I did find a couple things, though... This is a MINT Orvis 1/2 norfolk cord SC, size 46L. Love the hacking pockets and ticket pocket.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nice J Press raglan trench coat. The only wear on this thing that I can find is on the tag. Marked a 42L but fits me, so I may keep itWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
BB long sleeve polo for me
Anyone recognize these markings on this surcingle belt? Nice leather, well made... maybe available
