Here I am, pumped about my single score for the day, and I have to post right behind Spoo. Fantastic.

Anyways, my SW&D knowledge is extremely limited, but I know enough to pick this up. After a dozen trips this store finally paid off: NWT Robert Geller wool blend jacket. Tagged size 50. I think it's fall 2012.

Not my size, but found total of 5 BB's from the same donor...."fresh" from the dry cleaner.

The ones not shown had flaws, a small stain, missing button, etc..... I think my eyes are going bad. 

 

Madras patch

 

 

Six Harris Tweeds, one new, all older models, USA tailored 

 

 

 

and like Spoo I got a corkscrew....only bought it cause I thought it looked cool. However, I have no idea what it would be fastened to for use. Damn thing is about 6 pounds.

Definitely keep it if it fits you. You will fall in love with it. Great color too! I bought mine close to 15 years ago and it's in my general winter rotation. I've thinned my vintage outdoor jacket/vest/parka collection down a ton and this piece managed to make the cut every time.
Score!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Had a good day today. Everything except the J. Crew is available.

Shoes. Both need a little cleaning up but the Aldens are in very nice shape. AE Cody (9 1/2 D and Alden Cape Cod Collection Boat Shoe/Mocs (11 D).







RLPL light-weight car coat. Sz L

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Gokey Canvas/leather field bag. Apparently there was another one that I had missed. I'm hoping it was an identical bag and not a duffle/weekender bag as I've been after something like that for over a year.

Got the wife a few things



Pretty thrilled when I saw these, but sadly when I inquired as to if they had the original "Whole Earth Catalog" they said they tossed it out in the 70's. frown.gif Still after that one. I already have copies of these but these are in nice shape and couldn't pass them up for $1. They're scarce these days.



Some eBay currency

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

RLPL black polo. Sz L




Lululemon spread collar polo. So bummed this is like 2 sizes too small for me frown.gif



J. Crew shawl collar metal clasp fleece cardigan. bounce2.gif

Mint Victorinox 22" roller suitcase

I think its only because I am hungry, but this looks like my favorite find of yours !
post #79225 of 119095

Had a good day today...

 

Went into a Salvation Army store in Raymond, ME and found this:

 

99 cents US

 

Hit a nearby Goodwill and came up with these:

 

 

 

 

 

Vintage Cricketeer bi-swing shooting jacket, 4.99

 

and this:

 

 

 

Beautiful vintage J. Press 3 roll 2 tweed sport coat, 4.99

 

All in great condition and neither jacket will require significant tailoring so I bought a six pack of Lagunitas IPA on the way home to celebrate!

post #79226 of 119095
Only one thing today, but my best find to date.

post #79227 of 119095

So, when are the GWs going to change their names to Brooks Brothers Outlet?

 

It seems that every single thrift around here is half BB. Why would anyone pay retail for that stuff?

post #79228 of 119095
I picked up some stuff for myself today: a very nice braided LL Bean belt and a Saks Fifth Avenue mini gingham check shirt, but these two are for selling:

Ralph Lauren Country Shooting Shirt, with corduroy collar, padded shoulder and bib front.




Early 1960s wool nordic ski sweater. Happens to also have some nice navajo-like pattern going on.

Not letting my Lobbs get the bottom of the page!

First off, shout out to WES. We just had a great 8am-6pm Jersey thrift day which I have to say went pretty well. Lots of finds, a few laughs and a toll both that almost put us out of commission. All in all was great to meet my 3rd styleforum member.

Got caught up in the moment at an estate sale this morning. 

 

dude was a compulsive mail order shopper. 14 NWT Pendleton shirts including board shirts, oxfords and more.

 

 

Cool wool rich cotton work jacket and 4 ventilated woolrich shirts. Not only NWT but in the plastic.

 

 

There were another 25 shirts just like these in the same colors. He also had 25 new, still wrapped beige woolrich tshirts and another 25 identical tshirts folded from the laundry. An oscar de la renta tux. a BB loro piana rain system blazer, 3 BB suits, but all that was priced at pretty much ebay sales price. 3 identical Jos. A Banks leather car coats..... 

 

I also picked up a cool pair of LL Bean knee high waders/ duck hunting boots, look worn once or twice. 

 

While I was questioning his sanity for buying all these things, it occurred to me that I had bought 22 of his shirts and have yet to sell anything.......

 

Brian.....will you be my sponsor?

Of course. :lol:
