    When I'm back on my feet I may have to pick your brain, you know, so your route stays warm [​IMG] Best of luck in Florida, man. I know the weather will be a change!

    I can't even begin to imagine the worry and scare this caused. Your wife and child will be in our prayers.


    We've had a "boutique" Goodwill store for a pretty long time. The people who pick this stuff from the back rooms really know their labels. They've picked the most recent, obscure labels that most people wouldn't even care to give a second look. It's scary. It irritates me to know that if they didn't have full-time employees picking though the racks in the backroom this stuff would have been fair game to a lot of customers.

    The GW Boutiques here don't have a clue. If something is NWT, they snatch it up. Lots of Haggar, Stafford. Sometimes they even get *gasp* Izod. I'll keep getting my Brooks Brothers fix at the regular thrifts.

    First, congratulations on your new addition. I am so happy to hear your family is doing better, and hope you guys get to go home soon. I love hearing these stories when they have a happy ending. NICU nurses and doctors are some of the most incredible.
    I am not too far from you (St. Pete area). I hit up Orlando only once (about 3-4 stores during my ungrad stint there) and had the same impression. BUT they have some great outlets and premium shopping so stuff is bound to show up. Hang around winter park, near the mall of millenia...etc etc. I walked into NM Last call in Orlando and they had some serious stuff (I recall an awesome TF overcoat in a glass case for some obscene amount).

    Maybe its just me, but those patterns don't go together so well... maybe if the jacket had a red overcheck?

    Naw you're screwed, better off selling it.

    On the plus side, maybe you can sell it to the same guy who will inevitably buying the T-Rex armed Helmut Lang blazer I picked up today.

    :brothanks: to everyone.

    We have plenty of family and friend support, but this community is a part of tha, for me anyway.

    Hey, at least I'm wearing selvedge and Brioni in the hospital. Priorities, amirite?

    Edit: I think it was fairly obvious, but just in case, I was kidding.

    (It was rlpl). :hides:

    You posted tons of great stuff, but this is grail city for me. Vintage wool knitwear is often done very well and has a flattering, slim fit with high armholes. I've been obsessed with vintage knits of late and would love to find more. That embroidered name is just tits.

    Thanks. It put a big smile on my face when I pulled it off the rack...and then it fit. I'd been looking all winter for a store in my area stocking similar sweaters from either North Sea Clothing or HNS Herning. Couldn't find one. Couldn't believe I thrifted a vintage one. Same goes for the Golden Bear coat I found. Been looking all winter for one like it in my size. Sucks I have to wait 9 months or so to wear it out, though, EvilAbhed caught me wearing the coat on a day not quite cold enough to warrant it. My office is freezing. They can't get the air conditioning to shut off.
