    During the waring days life expectancy was rather short due to constant violence, diseases, and poor living conditions. I think the show paints and accurate painting of those days. I'm willing to except bad things happen to the protagonists as long as the assholes of the story get what's coming to them. [​IMG]

    So epic. That is all. Pics later. A shopping cart was too small for this haul.

    Pop!
    One of the nicest suits I've come across. Dunhill cotton cashmere corduroy full suit, with another tag I've never seen before. Horn buttons, ticket pocket, single vented, soft as fuck!

    Okay, I know this is a noob question, but if anyone wouldn't mind terribly sharing a few thrift spots in Boston with me, it would be highly appreciated. The wife and I are heading up there soon with one whole day set aside for visiting thrift/discount stores.

    Also, I had a (great or potentially disastrous) idea - would anyone be interested in a Thriftmas in July, complete with Secret Santa? The last round was a lot of fun, and if this were set for the end of the month, I think we have enough time to pull off something cool. I'd be willing to organize, although help would most definitely be welcome. Especially advice from our last organizer.

    Did they change their tags? This is the only Zegna I've got to compare it to and it's totally different.

    I always thought that guy's listing were funny.

    Deets on the haul...All the suits/SC were 46L (I think, and most are going to be unavailable). Same donor, I'm sure. Fucking most ridiculous Brioni Super 180's jacket I've ever seen. I am praying to god that I find the pants to this thing sometime this week. Cuffs are working like they should be getting overtime pay.

    Blazers include: Zegna, Canali, Corneliani, Brioni, Hugo Boss, Armani. I lost count, maybe 12 in total.

    Suits: 2 mint Robert Talbott Carmel line. My first time seeing these, I think at least 1 has functioning cuffs. Construction looked good as I checked them for holes, but didn't have time to see if they're canvassed.

    Shirts: Paul stuart, charles tyrwhitt, zegna

    Also, some baller brimmed hat made for neiman marcus. I forget the brand.

    I'm guessing you think they are worth between $250 and $400.
    I would say, you must be on crack, but that's just me.

    These sick hauls you guys are pulling down is making me depressed. Four stores on Saturday and all I got was a sulka tie. My first sulka, but still.

    I would pass on them at a thrift store for $10, and certainly wouldn't pick them up online for $250 if I though my little toe would be dragging in the street after a week of wear.
