then see a great looking Orvis shirt. Nothing else as I
went to try it on, see Etro shirt $4.99, mint condition.

Try shirts on, come out find 10 Zegna pants, several Zanellas
and Hiltl pants and Incombex (not sure how to spell but I bought
them).

I start thinking, I better check out the suits.

Bam.

One Brioni 100 percent cashmere with side vents....$14.99

Bam,

Another silk/wool Brioni traino sc. then another and another.

Charvet shirt, passed on. rough shape
Dunhill shirt, bought.

Left Pal Zileri jacket, Zegna pants (stains).

I'm a full-time seminary student studying to be a Pastor. Money is
super tight as I was going to the bank to cover our account, I was
praying and thanking God for all He's done.

Today was a great day!

Bah! That's nothing!

Today at Value Village I scored me some sweet Red Papal Shoes and White Papal Robe personally autographed by The Holy Father Himself.





SWEET!

Good to know. It seems pretty nice, but my experience with alligator is pretty limited.

Nice score! Yeah, you got lucky with it being too big, as you can always cut them down to size. When they're too small (which usually is my luck), all you can do is sigh and walk away or pass it on to someone with a smaller waist size.

so im at a thrift yesterday looking for parts a bike im working on and i check out the suits,there was about 5 or 6 suits MTM for some guy...his name and below it says Wayzata MN!!!
that might not be odd...but im all the way in Toronto Canada
post #9501 of 112442
Wow - that's actually quite a coincidence, as there is only one men's clothier in Wayzata! Was it made for someone who lives in Wayzata or was it a store in Wayzata? It's not a very large city either, it's just a suburb of Minneapolis. Was it from Judd Frost, per chance? They usually use a green label. http://juddfrost.com/

Today I passed on a nice Brooks Brothers checked SC, 46L (I am 46R), saw a gigantic (52 or bigger) orphaned Alfred Dunhill suit jacket and bought a pair of PRL wool trousers ("The Walter Pant"), NWT that are just a tad too long....finding those Samuelsohn and Canali suits a couple of weeks ago is whetting my appetite for thrifting. Those are going on B&S. Now to find something that is actually in my size!

Today I got a nice Danier brown leather jacket in my size at a vintage shop near my place. I had traded in a bunch of my old stuff a while back and I had store credit so I didnt have to pay anything for it which was nice.

Back when Grand Theft Auto was first released for PlayStation, there was a mission pack called London 1969. This is an image from that game. I've always been a sucker for crime films, but even more so when they are British and even more if they are set in the 60s a la "Gangster No. 1"

Dolcepunta softpoint tie $1 Ted Baker $1 Two pairs of Canali slacks $3 each Armani Colezioni Sport Coat Black with gray pattern $5 Marks & Spencer Houndstooth Sportcoat $6 and the last item not sure who makes it but thought it would be good for the bay as I will never get use out of it in south Florida, Camel Full Length 55/45 Wool/Alpaca Double Breasted Overcoat with Patch Pockets Hand Tailored in Italy (tagged 44 inside)

If anyone is interested in the coat PM me
