Why aren't you keeping the coat? It looks like it fits great. Unless you're in a climate where you quite literally never need it, you should keep that one. Edit: nevermind, completely missed the south florida line in your post.

+1, I would keep that in case you travel anywhere cooler, the fit is excellent and you're not out by much cash if you keep it.

I also found a nice Benson & Clegg suit today, black (aaarrgghhh!) DB, but too short for me.

I ended up buying a Hackett evening suit - quite expensive by thrift store standards, but I need one for an upcoming event and I've acquired everything else on the cheap.

Not much of a brag in terms of value or label or anything I picked up probably my favorite thrifted item today. This khaki rubberized rain slicker that has some serious Take Ivy steez.

Found a vintage shearling sheepskin coat in my parent's old coat closet.

Isn't The Foursome also in Wayzata?

Ooh yeah, I forgot about them. They've moved to a new location off Hwy 55 in Plymouth since they're ridding of the mall in Wayzata where they used to be. I haven't been there since they've moved, but the new store looks pretty nice judging by the picture on their website. http://thefoursome.com/content/Store_News.htm

Wow, your thrift store has much better prices than the ones I visit up northeast.

I saw a nice leather jacket today. The label says "Cinquantanove", "59" in the middle, then "made in Italy" on the bottom. There is another label with "Massimo Gori". Does anyone know if this is worth picking up?
