Needs a little work, shoulders fit perfect.

I rarely buy anything from consignment shops, but I was looking for a tux for my dad and stumbled upon it. Really couldnt pass it up.

Sir, you are twisted, devious, and spiteful. Outstanding!

Helly-Hansen is a Norwegian outfitter and makes top quality gear for occupations that require it, like fishing, for example. They also make everyday foul weather gear, but not as gentleman's fashion in they way Barbour and such do.

For me, one Charvet shirt nice shape would make a thrift trip worth the while.

yeah right,you probaby ARE exactly the guy who piles everything in there in his cart.

Has anyone here checked out Out of the Closet in San Francisco? Is it worth visiting? I'm thinking of hitting it up for a thrift run, but not sure if there's any decent menswear there.

Agreed. Thrifting is one of those things which is fun as a hobby, but would be a shitty way to make a living. Poker is also in that category.

I stripped the bad attempt to darken this boot, and just used a leather conditioner and buffed them. Much better with the original finish.

Trawled an antiques warehouse in Canberra last weekend and found vintage Ferragamo PS and Valentino tie.

Very nearly hit a jackpot. I saw a Tag Heuer watch and asked the girl how much; she said $20. So I got her to pack it up, whereupon the $340 price tag fell out of the box onto the counter. Damn.

Found a pretty nice Hickey Freeman 46r wool/silk blend houndstooth blazer today

I got a J.Crew madras blazer for 1 dollar. It still has its tags and everything. I dont what occasion would ever call for it

Nothing of sartorial significance today, but I did find a mint US Army "Ike" jacket from 1944 for $2. Apparently they classified this as a winter jacket, and all winter jackets were 50% off
