post #69451 of 114535
Highlights of yesterday and today:

Pulled these right off the rolling rack before they were even put out. Same donor had also donated a HF shirt, but not my size and I haven't seen them get any love here so I left it. On the other hand, the Tyrwhit and the PRL I grabbed.



This is the better version of PRL, right, with the script font?


Anyway, like I say, not my size so get at me if you like. Warning: More pics (Click to show)


Finally found some jazz that wasn't trashed. Unfortunately, one of the covers has some damage, but the discs themselves are fine.

Theknottery.com dropped their spring product they have some cool stuff I like the pocketsquares but the ties are just too damn skinny

^i hate skinny ties. I don't know why that's such a trend.
post #69455 of 114535
That trend isn't confined to ties...Found a great deal on a BBBF suit in my hard to find size but the tiny lapels were a deal breaker

Nicest pair of trousers I've handled. Tagged 50, Available


And these


Came with this in the pocket Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

...at a consignment store. N/A

Thom Browne at Black Fleece is all about tiny dimensions. Check out his mainline suits. Was the BBBF suit a "thrift store great deal" or "on sale great deal"? If it was thrift, you could have easily flipped it for a bunch.

Having just flipped a BBBF piece I posted last week, I'm well aware of the flip potential foo.gif - but thanks for looking out

Mad men and the recession which makes people reminisce about the good old days when everything was fair aka 50s aka skinny ties then fashion like always takes everything too far and now dudes that read gq look like they are in a Halloween costume wearing strings around their neck and their little brothers suits

Given the quality of everything else there I was pleasantly surprised. I noticed when I got home that its marked as an XL so I measured it and its 62 inches. Oh well, it's a nice tie in my opinion and if I decide I don't want it or can't get it to tie to my satisfaction I'll probably try to sell it.

Thank you, thrift gods. Last week I left two pairs of vintage AE split toe bluchers at a Goodwill (the same one that yielded the $20 in a jacket pocket some time back) because they weren't my size and I just wasn't into tryin to flip them.

Went back today, and picked up a pair of AE Logan boots in my size.

Friend, you have surplus, not debt.
