    I mentioned this one a while ago, but never got around to taking pictures. It was 50% off when I found it, so must have been sitting there for a few weeks. Don't know how I missed a NWT Isaia on my previous trips...

    and how something made for Neiman Marcus, NWT, gets to Cincinnati (nearest N.M. is 300 miles away) also boggles the mind.

    Recentish (within the last month) - feedback always welcome as I'm still learning (also learning how to spoiler properly):

    Trafalgar Braces (available)
    [​IMG]

    J. Press Seersucker 3-roll-2 44L (available)
    [​IMG]

    PRL ~36 - available (only tag is the "made by hand" one, but buttons are PRL, feels like 100% wool, perhaps some cashmere in there?)
    [​IMG]

    Incotex for EZ (n/a)
    [​IMG]

    Incotex Chino lino (n/a)
    [​IMG]

    Zanella Bennett ~35/36 (available)
    [​IMG]

    NWT but real, real old EZ - available (would you have bought for $2?) - how would you even describe this pattern?
    [​IMG]

    Also scooped up an EZ Angora/Wool/Cashmere blend jacket, and a Willis and Geiger Shirt last night that is like this, but in perfect condition. Photos to come and will be available.

    Was on the fence about going out tonight as I've been in the midst of a very dry spell. Ended up being easily my best night ever.
    Notable firsts: Charvet, Turnbull & Asser, RLPL, Isaia.
    Excuse the terrible pics, too excited to take proper ones before going to bed.

    [​IMG]

    Charvet, RLPL, Hermes, D&G x2 (pseudo-peekaboo cheesecake tie)

    [​IMG]


    Paul Smith x6
    [​IMG]

    Isaia x2, Duchamp, Turnbull & Asser x2

    [​IMG]

    Etro x3, Dunhill x2, cool Boss polka dot knit

    One of my little walk-to stores reopened with all new inventory today, after their summer sell out. I usually hit them on Wednesday, but decided to switch it up a bit. Found a few nice things. This was the first thing I grabbed.

    RL Country Waxed Cotton Trench

    First off, I can't believe I'm saying this, but that G-Star jacket is fucking awesome. Second, that old ass Zegna tie reminds me of Crono Trigger for some reason. Anybody remember Crono Trigger....anybody? Third, that RL Country waxed jacket is so, so, awful, yet so, so amazing!

    Post- "the treatment". Spotted a teeny hole at the top left hand corner of that front pocket, but thats it. Interested in finding out why the back is structured like that (is this a regular shirt or "safari" shirt?) Any other details I should pay attention to, feel free to let me know. Many thanks!

    Is that Threads Count? http://threadscountpdx.com/
    The guy who does fittings for Proper Suit in Portland and San Francisco is one of the owners. I've only been in once, but it seems like a nice shop.

    Nice haul man, I would have grabbed everything even the tie. I can't believe you found a pair on NON-PLEATED Zanellas. I didn't know they existed in thrift land [​IMG].

    EDIT to add spoiler

    No. You have to use a special cleaner/conditioner specific to reptiles. I use Aristocrat reptile /exotic formula.

    It's tagged Small, but it is definitely not small. Closer to L or bigger.

    Oh dear, prepare to have a few months of your life tied up in that one. :nodding: Part III for SNES is still my favorite though.

    And a very cool HT for $1 at the GW outlet store--I don't think it was ever worn. I don't even care that it's LE, but I do wish that it fit:

    My firm is in the process of opening an office in LA, seriously considering applying for the same role that I do here... wouldn't particularly help my career, but the thrifting and being close to the beach................................................................

    Am I nuts? How much is reasonable rent/price for a condo in West LA??
