For me, a $6000-7000 RLPL cashmere topcoat for $10. Something actually for myself, that is hanging in my closet? This:
Cost me $50 but worth every cent! Feels like wearing a cloud made of cashmere made from angle feathers.
edit: It's also got a belted back.
These are a close second, $9
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?
