I had to pay regular price for the fourth but they averaged out to $4 each.

Various BB lines. The 346 are flannel, pleated & cuffed, and the other three are worsted, flat front, no cuff.

 


Nice for yourself. Regents are "newer" and not seen much in thrifts. They have a really nice cut, IMO much nicer then the Madison. The 346 pants you will prob toss after wearing the others for a while. Material quality is subpar and you'll find better stuff the more you do this!

 

 

NOT MY LISTING - GOOD DEAL IMO - $60 BIN if you want a peacoat for next fall/winter

BROOKS BROTHERS Pea Coat. Wool blend. Navy, L. Used. ($400 retail) No reserve.

Found a sweet Made in England Orvis/Harris Tweed half Norfolk shooting jacket today. A shame it will have to hide on the tweed rack for 6 months.

How are you storing that volume of tweed? Do you have a cedar warehouse???

I do have a rather large volume of cedar in action right now. Cut down a pretty big one in the yard last year. How convenient.

I doubt he is referring to his personal collection; more likely he is getting rid of his thrifted inventory. Already has some tweed up on his eBay

here's something kinda cool, and likely cheap, for 40rs. i dont have any affiliation with this seller.

Two things today, both available:

 

(1) 44R Brooks Brothers made in Italy 100% cashmere overcoat.  Black.  Hidden placket.  There are a couple spots where the lining is fraying, but very nice overall.

(2) Crazy Orvis SC.  40R/L.  (I wear a 40L, and it fits me perfectly, except it's about a 1/2-3/4 inch shorter than would be ideal).

Those of us who pull vintage shirts might make some $$ off the secondary markets.
