Some of my stuff today. Sorry for the flash lightning picking up my new light set tomorrow (finally). It's not as good as most people who post here do, but I adventured a bit to find this stuff.

Southwick Blazer

 

Armani 100% Silk

 

 

 

Southwick Tweed

 

BB Tweed

 

Canali Proposta Wool/Cotton

 

 

Samuelsohn Suit

 

 

Vestimenta DB

 

Uniqlo Blazer (for myself)

 

Paul Stuart (Samuelsohn)

 

Holland & Sherry Savile Row

 

From top to botton: Polo Ralph Lauren Made in Italy, Allen Edmond Suede, Tralf Cortina

 

Dunhill, Dunhill, Talbott, Hardy Amies Savile Row, Culwell & Son (Dallas Store) I think it's by Hickey Freeman, BB Makers, BB Makers, BB Makers, Barneys New York Made in Italy

 

 

Zegna, Aquascutum, Polo RL, Gitman Bros (green tag), J Crew, PRL, PRL, J Crew, Talbott NWT, Talbott NWT, Talbot NWT, Hickey Freeman, Hickey Freeman

 

 

So I know almost nothing about shoes. I pick up safe ones like Allen Edmonds and other such that gets posted around here if I can find them, but I usually shy away from Florsheim and Cole Haan because I don't know what to look for. I picked up these Johnston and Murphys because they looked awesome. Suede and Leather, Made in Italy. Was this a good pick up?

I assume you are asking for resale, probably $30-35 if in decent shape...not a bad pickup it they were 5-10

Edit: This was not a thrift store find, I scooped this off the SW&D B&S for a song, completely paid for with thrift funds. Fuck I love this hobby!

I did grab one thing there - Dunhill Italy (older Zegna I think) SC with issues, for button harvesting (the ones with the little "d" logo - a set currently on eBay for $470 OBO [not that they would ever sell for anywhere near that much]).

Oh, you must be up in my neck of the woods....


No thrifting for me today, gents. On baby duty while the wife and kids go to a baptism. Hopefully I will get a chance to start the trouser experiment.
