This is good life advice, not just good thrifting advice.

Indeed. And synergy too: I found the same ones about a week or two ago in my size and I'm keeping them.

Great stuff, guys!

So this is a bit random. An eBay seller who usually doesn't know what is going on listed this jacket a little while ago. I've never heard of the brand, and I can't really find anything on it anywhere. So it's probably nothing... But then again. If you look closely at picture number two (if you click the link, feel free to just ignore), doesn't that look like a very nice hand sewn boutonnière? And the label is hand stitched to the lining... Maybe someone here knows something? http://m.ebay.com/itm/261301373085
Anyways, it's probably nothing.

Yeah I was shocked. 3sixteens shadows were my first selvedge i bought and know the quality. Handling some gustins after made me realize even more how nice 3sixteens are. Too small for me so once I get pics probably up for trade before the bay. Unless they happen to fit my brother.

Right, I'm in Sweden. Even so, finding stuff like this is pretty much unheard of. It's just that this was the local branch of the Swedish public radio that was getting rid of their archives. And since public radio had pretty much unlimited funding during the 60's and 70's, they bought everything and anything. Good thing people didn't have a clue what this stuff was worth.

Also saw a used Loro piana cashmere trench coat at a thrift store for $899.00 -lol

Thanks Nataku! I saw that the retail prices were up there, but it seems like they're not moving on eBay. Glad I passed. Thanks all!

not thrifted but estate saled;

I'll try to get the omega restored to to a respectable daily wearer and maybe keep the bulova to tinker with, the burlington will likely go on ebay unless someone wants a running ceramic faced pocket watch from 1919 for an interesting trade.
