    Wanted to start contributing a little more in here. And Ian asked if I'd post up some pics of a popover I picked up.

    Don't find tailored clothing very often (I mostly buy for myself, 36R/S is a hard size to come by), so it's typically more SW&D stuff.

    Recent pickups:

    Pop on a few podcasts - Radiolab, This American Life, the History of Rome, WTF with Mark Maron...those are staples in my rotation, and having them on while doing repetitious but slightly mindless stuff like photographing helps make the whole thing much more palatable.

    They would go for far more than I paid, but I collect LVC/Levi's stuff to an extent.

    I didn't photograph, but also picked up a pair of early 70's selvedge little 'e' 501s and a RRL pocket tee.

    Wow! At the rate I'm going, it would take me a year to pick up the items you picked up in one day!

    I ran across five or six suits with the following label:

    What is everyone's opinion on quality? This doesn't seem to be the "good" Caraceni? Thanks

    thrift fit from church today: andover shop, brooks brothers, henry rosen, j crew
    also who the hell makes these henry rosen made in Italy pants, I love them, they are washed cotton like a lbm 1911 or bolgioli jacket and the label looks familiar I just can't place it

    Went out today to enjoy the LD weekend sales. Everything was half off, lovely. Got maybe 10 or so Made in England overcoats, couple Canali overcoats, England 100% cashmere navy coats... gorgeous stuff. But, I prefer to look for the unusual things, its making me more fulfilled lately. So, some things from today that are more off the beaten path. Worth the gamble since it was half off.
