Hey, I did the 5-shirt deal from TM Lewin too! Needed a round of white shirts so I snagged 4, plus a random stripe.

Thanks for posting these. I almost never go into thrift stores and you've got me excited now! Going to hit a Goodwill after work today.

I've been thrifting for over a year now and the one thing I've always wanted to find is a pair of shell cordovan shoes. I was casually browsing Value Village with the lady friend over the weekend with no intention of purchasing anything. But I found this:

Also picked up a cashmere sweater by Bergdorf Goodman in navy. Sweet.

...now at 51. Do note that we have quite a few from outside the US (around 20%, though that includes our Canadian friends), so there's a higher chance that you'll have international shipping. If that's a problem, let me know and I'll remove you from the list.

In an effort to better understand styles and trends for men what readings can I pick up? I read Put This On and a few other online blogs, but other then that I'm pretty clueless on exactly what to look for when seasons change, etc. What little I know, such as unvented being out of style, etc is from this forum. I want to educate myself in others ways as well now. Magazines, books, other online readings, etc. Any suggestions? GQ and Esquire probably a good place to start?

Best source hands down is The Rake Magazine. Otherwise follow a lot of tumblr blogs.

Style is something personal you develop. Just because unvented is "out" doesn't mean it can't be stylish on the right guy.

 

For books, look here.

Wait what?! On eBay? PM me the link! I love wide lapels and we're about the same size.

Nevermind, found it... lurking....

+1 to MZhammer's advice. There is also a vast amount of information within StyleForum. The photo-heavy threads (such as the WAYW threads). As for actual books, there are quite a few. Manton, for example, wrote a book on men's style.

As for unvented jackets, they may not be en vogue, but I wouldn't exactly say they're out of style. They create a different silhouette and look nice on the right body-type. They look great while standing, but not so much while sitting.

I have a few recent finds that I need to photograph but for the life of me can't find my SD card and reader. In the meantime I have an e-thrift brag: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181224089130?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

If I'd known I'd have just SENT it to you.

Should have posted to the trade thread. Sorry, bro!

Is this a more modern Schott label? The only one I could find that was similar was on Mr. Porter- sadly not a G-Series flight jacket, just a random motorcycle jacket, but an epic bay flip, nonetheless:
