It's tough to choose one though. The runner-up is probably a 1950s Brooks Brothers tuxedo in my size. Lately I'm more excited by the true vintage stuff, even by unknown makers, than by the ten-year-old high-dollar stuff.
Brooks Brothers hopsack navy blazer, triple patch pockets. Not my most exciting find, but I wear it once or twice a week.

It has an ingenious sack pack for self storage built into the back.
I also picked up the Polo Golf 60% cotton/40% poly pull over quarter zip fleece top for $8 just because I could.
Oh yeah, they had an argyle L.L. Bean made in Ireland wool sweater vest in Small for $3. I took all three today for less than $16. Nothing picworthy but I'm quite happy.
hard choice, either my Brioni Blue pinstripe150's. paid $25. in this old thrift fit.
(yes the tie is bad) i have nicer ties.
or a yellow cashmere sweater. forgot the price.
Most worn? this old thing. 55 years on and still works perfectly. it has made my other watches obsolete.
I really love the Patina, and the styling is subtle. this gets worn 5 days a week.
John Lobb "Matta II". Unworn with lasted trees. $2.
Here are the pics (including one of the receipt
) Sorry, not giving up the store!
They appear to be sized 9 ee, which I am very sorry to say, is nowhere near my size. So, since I don't envision opening a shoe museum, that means I'll be flipping them.
By the way, you referenced the Lobb's value. Any idea what retail would be on these?
Welcome to the thrift thread.... where items are 99% off retail 95% of the time.
Not to start a war but be careful with the Ferragamo Studio line (glued)... had 2 pairs fall apart on me.... construction is subpar IMO
