    That's actually a sportcoat. Like Zegna, they specify what the item is (ie: suit or jacket) right on the label. That is a mere jacket, never sold with trousers. Nice find!

    That's what I thought when I first looked at the label, but at the bottom of the tag it says that the pants are lined with 100% cotton. That made me think that it must be an orphan. Do you think that's a red herring, though?

    ^It's sexy whatever it is.

    Hit Marshall's since there's been chat about them a lot recently. Only had one of the Pantharella 3-packs in my Bigfoot sizes (and I don't really need a set of tan, purple, and purple socks). But I did snag one of those cashmere (ok, 70/30 cashmere/silk) HF's. Will look nice come winter.

    And then I come home to my most recent e-thrift! Finally a proper brown tie I could actually see wearing (I've thrifted a few from nice makers, but they're just not my style).

    Has anybody found this brand before? Pretty neat Indian and Dutch design duo. Edit: can't seem to upload photos from my phone, the label is Preachoo + Krejberg

    ^^^ Never heard of it but looks pretty cool from their stuff online. Grab it!


    Hmm, I guess we'll never know then. That's odd. Still, I've never seen suit pants lined with cotton. It's always been cupro/the same stuff the jacket is lined with.

    Finally, came across my first pair of selvedge. APC Petite size 32. I would need a time machine to fit into them, but if anyone in North Atlanta is interested, shoot me a PM and I will let you know where to get them.

    I believe it it has just New York stamped, that would be the oldest label. I'm intrigued .

    A few interesting things: truly Annie Hall-era Polo sportcoats. Both tweed; one with dual vents and a ticket pocket; the other with a single vent.

    Two ties: '70s Givenchy "Gentleman" Paris all-silk tie; '60s/'70s NWT pheasant tie. Wicked colours.

    Hit a few places today - Marshalls, TJX and some GW's. Not a whole lot...


    Vintage Erector Set, 1959 model.
    [​IMG]

    Bunch of parts; not sure if they're correct for this set. Came with the booklet, dated 1959 as well.
    [​IMG]

    One of the projects is "Bench" - looks pretty challenging - might try to build it when I have a free weekend.
    [​IMG]

    Robert Graham clearance at Marshalls.
    [​IMG]

    Luciano Barbera clearance at TJX.
    [​IMG]

    Generic Burberry's made in USA.
    [​IMG]

    Nice pattern tho.
    [​IMG]

    Pendleton shirt-jac-thing, wool.
    [​IMG]

    Made in USA.
    [​IMG]

    Ashtray, because why not for a buck?
    [​IMG]

    On Wisconsin!
    [​IMG]

    Couple run-of-the-mill BB shirts.
    [​IMG]

    Picked these up because they seemed well-made, though never heard of the brand.
    [​IMG]

    "Stradel's", made in Italy? Will have to look it up later.
    EDIT: apparently Stradel's has a few boutique shops in Paris...
    [​IMG]

    Sueded leather sport coat, needs a cleaning and brushing.
    [​IMG]

    Made in Argentina.
    [​IMG]

    Southwick herringbone.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    For me - no name brand.
    [​IMG]

    ...unless "Bob Timberlake" is a thing...
    [​IMG]

    Another for me - McKenzie Tribe, who I really like.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Are these the good LL Bean boots? Leather...
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Made in USA, and I think that says "11" on the sole in some weird font.
    [​IMG]

    Bit worn, but at GW prices, if they're "good" Bean's, then why not.
    [​IMG]

    Allen Edmonds Burton, in decent shape.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    EDIT #2: forgot to mention - found cash money again - a crisp $20 this time, in a sport coat pocket. Last time was a $20 and either a $5 or a $10, in women's jeans. Pretty much makes up for the unused $50 Macy's gift card I lost sometime in the last week.
