If anyone is looking for a gift for their lady, Nordstrom's has a nice Burberry tote for 65% off at $510, normally $1,500.

I went to a thrift shop after work, so I was a bit dressed up. As I left, a woman followed me outside. She came up to me and asked if she could talk to me for a couple of minutes. She starts telling me that she's out of a job and needs some work. I said that I was sorry to hear about that, but I don't have any work. She asked me if I was sure a few times and said that she would like to talk to me in private. I didn't really get it, but said that I was sorry, but I really didn't have any work. Again, she said "Are you sure?" and again, I said I was. She then said that her apartment is close and that surely we could talk in private about a job. It then dawned on me what she was trying to say. As I walked away, I called my wife and asked her if I look like the type of man that would spontaneously pick up a prostitute. happy.gif

Nice looking bag, very clean!

I saw a Robert Graham shirt with a $45 price tag at a goodwill. Surprising, those things are so ugly I figured most stores assumed they were worth nothing. I did find one last week for $3.50, though. Most of today's stuff is headed to da bay to cover my C&J loafers. Been kind of dry around here lately, I haven't found a full suit FOREVER.

Today I stopped at a place I have basically quit frequenting because I have never found a single thing there after 10+ visits, and found this today:

Charvet and Ferragamo ties ($1.50 each), Unvented PRL, Brioni 100% Linen and Ferragamo White Dress Shirt:

Any 36x30 looking for some selvedge jeans? Naked & Famous denim in Indigo (red selvedge)/Raw Grey (silver selvedge)/Raw Indigo (red selvedge)
AppleMark

Still need to take pics of (in my opinion) the best finds of the past couple days but here are 2 quick pics from the field...they are definitely not the norm in terms of finds from this thread (think SW&D) which to me makes them that much more exciting...

Can't vouch for the third one (except to say kill it with fire), but I saw those first two ties like a month ago and passed because of ink marks and/or stains.

Just left the thrift with a broken heart - recent Brioni, navy with light blue pinstripes, double breasted, dual exhaust. Excellent condition. Unfortunately, an orphan. Made a quick trip around the store, no trousers anywhere. The worst part? My size.
