Hit my southern loop for the first time in a while last night. Lots of goodies, but the real treat was the last stop of the evening. I local costume shop had donated a ton of old costumes. Most were from the 40's. Of course I bought it all. More to come later.

I bought the following items a couple of months ago in T.K. Maxx, but only just got round to posting; brown suede John White Westbury chukka boots, for £79.99 and a crocodile effect calf leather ring belt from Anderson's of Italy, in the clearance section for £12.99. I know John White is not particularly well-regarded on teh StyFo, but they've been pretty good so far.

The best part is that they are my size, right down to the inseam length! And in mint condition... This is why we thrift, eh?

Some of my finds from this week...

The first shop I visit in Vienna is one where they know me. They're all pretty friendly in there and one woman comes up and asks if I'm looking for anything. I said not really, just sort of looking. She then proceeds to grab shirts of different sizes and hands them to me. She was super nice and handed me a couple of pretty nice shirts. Meanwhile, a guy that is apparently a regular (and really rude) walked in between us and asked what was new in the shop. She responded that everything new was on the racks, that he'd just have to look. He said he only cared about the new stuff and she said they put the new stuff out every day and that he'll just have to look.

She continued helping me, but now he was intercepting everything that she tried to hand me. I sort of laughed, but after the second or third time, she told him to stop that, that she's helping me and not him. He mumbled something and left. She explained that he comes in, treats everyone terribly and then tries to talk them down on their already very cheap prices. By this point, she had given me 15-20 shirts and I sorted through them.

Burberry linen shirt. I think this is the most faked brand I come across, but I think this is legit. If not, it's still a linen shirt that I would wear. Unavailable.

Gant Rugger polos. I try to keep Gant info straight, but it's my kryptonite...I have very little idea. These weren't the normal Gant label and they were made in Japan. Either way, I'm an idiot as I almost certainly overpaid. They didn't seem super-nice, but what the hell. Probably unavailable.

Pocket squares. The equestrian one is interesting, it has horses and hunting dogs woven into it.

Demo Ray-Bans. No country of origin, though they seem to be real. Unavailable.

Z Zegna linen/cotton jacket. Pretty cool. Unavailable.

...from the same donor. A custom made piece that fits me really well. I wish he'd have donated more, but these hadn't even made it out to the floor yet, the woman actually thought they'd be my size and brought them to me.

Awesome ivory dinner jacket. Fits, so I'm keeping...though I have NO idea when I'll wear it. How often do you come across one of these in your size though?

Miu Miu...a first for me. Unavailable.

Ties. Is that first one just a regular weave or is something more?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

More ties.

I was thinking the same thing the other day when Eazye posted the shells he found. Then I found 3 pairs in about 24 hours.

So, went back to the scene of the 80+ unit crime and took home another 35-40 items. I know, useless without pictures. But Im so busy, cant get them all in one shot. I promise Ill post when I get to posting them in waves.

Also found out I bought half of this guys wardrobe. Been doing custom Brooks from the 50s smile.gif

Last, found 2 great coats from the 49-62 period. Random makers, with mint ACTWU tags. Built like tanks. One black wool, the other a grey herringbone tweed. Raglan sleeves, turnback cuffs, etc. I couldnt leave them at $4 each, but you think they would perform in the fall?
