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.
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.
OK. This is getting serious. I feel like I should be starting this post as "Hi, I'm John, and I'm and addict."

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?
The label just says Long Life Brand, Hangzhou, China. We were just there in May. West Lake is fucking gorgeous!!! We only stayed there for a day. We are going back in March and we are staying there for at least a week! Dude, seriously, if you guys get the chance to go to Hangzhou, do yourself a favor and go for at least 3 days!!!
I've got one for you guys too, but it's somewhere at the bottom of a pile of a 2 day mega thrift haul.
+1 Awesome day today out with Brian. Fun to meet the real expert behind his whole operation, turns out Brian is just the internet guy....a button pusher so to speak. The mastermind is a man we met at the first stop. The toll booth was funny.........until I found out there was a toll booth between your house and our hotel. . It wasn't there this morning. Anyway, I hope we get a chance to meet up again.
