    I've had good luck in Chattanooga for vintage/random stuff, not a ton of high end.

    Yes, I like Chattanooga. The America's Thrift there never disappoints. It may just be fodder, but it pays for the trip. I will be hitting that store this Saturday morning.

    I'll start off tonight's instalment with the most atrocious tie I have ever seen. It was half-off day at this shop, so I ask the lady behind the desk to pull out the tie drawer, when I see this patchwork nightmare. I laugh and comment to her how ugly it is. She agrees. I flip it over and see the tag. "I'll take it!"

    Nice! I knew that it was LP without the need for the second picture. The colors and patterns are very distinctive.

    Haven't got out much lately but snuck in one stop on the way home from the airport. Nothing crazy just some regular level things. But I have always wanted to use the superhero belt in a casual setting but wasn't willing to buy one at retail out of principal ha. Finally found one that fits at the thrift!

    LOL I have three Lilly patchwork ties. They don't see much use, but I like them regardless.

    One man's atrocious is another man's cool, I guess.

    On a very sunny day I could see it work. Like with a raw linen suit and a white shirt in a casual weave. In Brazil, Miami or some place hot. Panama hat, of course.

    Well I am from San Diego.

    I collect Lilly ties because they remind me of my mom. She loved Lilly. Up to about 20 or so, lost count.

    I think the only time I've worn a patchwork is to the horse races. I pair it with trad type stuff, OCBD, penny loafers, etc.

    VV is starting to get wise; $18 for the three eton shirts on the left (DNC but will admit I like the patterns on the last 2)... prices will probably go down again when they don't sell

    [​IMG]

    Never expected to find this where I am; too bad the collar's destroyed
    [​IMG]

    Anyone know the maker? DNC but it was fully canvassed and I'm curious
