    I used a SLIGHT amount of Allen Edmonds cordovan care cream. the discoloration was from abraisions and i had already tried to brush them out or an hour or so. they look a million times better now.

    Those are labels I would not be able to constrain myself with either. I'm excited to see what you pick up.

    I did a bad thing. Picking clothes up off the rack before they've been placed on the floor is verboten. But, I'm sorry Goodwill, I just HAD to:

    But there's a tiny bit of damage on the inside of one arm. I seriously think a good patch job would suffice instead of a full-on reweaving. It really doesn't show at all when the jacket is worn.

    I pointed this out to the lovely cashier, looking for half off or something like that, and she told me that she couldn't sell me damaged goods and almost took it off to be throw away.

    The sportcoat is unavailable until I go see what the tailor would charge me to shorten it a hair and take in the sleeves.

    Tks for the code, unfortunately, it's not working for AEs online (at least the ones that are already marked down to $240.)

    Inspired by Xenos' Berluti find (holy hell by the way, amazing), I headed to their website. I suggest checking it out and watching the video that plays on the front page. Coolest f'ing look book vid I've seen (shy of one that I worked on [​IMG]).

    OMG, that's a beautiful haul there...

    I have the mens version of the womens sweater you found. It's pretty awesome, especially at thrift prices.

    Which reminds me, I forgot my Mountain Hardwear haul from this morning...

    Made in America fleece technical jacket and Windstopper vest. Both are XL and scheduled to go up on Ebay Thursday evening. PMs gladly accepted...

    I recently moved to the ventura/oxnard area in Southern California, and I think this place must be the Mecca of Thrift stores. It seems like there is a large and well stocked store on every corner. I'm happy to see nearly every piece of clothing I'm wearing today was acquired at thrift stores.
