    As promised, here's the non-e-thrifted haul. Bigass shoutout to 1ofthecoolkids for being an awesome thrifting buddy.

    Inco x 5 (Zegnatex x 3) all of them are around the 32-34 range.

    I actually found a BB Tweed SC with buttons like that....but done in leather. IIRC it found a new home fairly quickly.

    He sent me this SC knowing it was my size on total faith of a player to be named later. Now, it turned out he named a very awesome player in the form of THIS Corneliani SC. [​IMG] But he simply took it on faith that I'd get his back, which I was glad to do. Good dude.

    Thanks man. It looks great!

    And what made the trade even more special is that, if I recall correctly, neither one of us had to do any tailoring. They were near perfect.

    I'm off from work this week trying to get my house and yard ready for winter but I'll try to do a thrift fit of mine next week.

    A very special thanks to FaceOfBoh for coming by with a care package for my family during some rough times. I did thank him personally when he came by, but I think he also deserves some public recognition for his actions.

    ..thanks again!

    I'm finding this to be true. To paraphrase Mayor Daley, go early, go often.

    Case in point, last night I was by a goodwill at about 8PM. did a walk thru of shoes, ties, and a run down the suits. This morning, I had to be in the same parking lot again, and since I was there at 9:30, figured I'd walk thru again. no shoes. no ties, but one guy donated 3 harris tweed jackets, one BB Cashmere blend sports coat and a Canali jacket. Not there 12 hours before.

    I grabbed all 5.

    Someone just recently mentioned finding tweeds with moth holes said to hold them up to the light so before I went to pay, I held them each up to the window and discovered that one of them had 3-5 moth holes, all small.

    So I left with the other 4.

    Again, this forum continues to pay dividends.

    You're welcome! It was the least we could do.

    Now, if I could only figure out how to do a round of homemade cinnamon buns for the forum, I'd probably have some decent trade fodder!

    PS tell your wife I'll be sending her the secret recipe.

    Blues: had to pass on a fur-lined J Press overcoat. (Too big for me, and they wanted $60.)

    Nobody here should be buying those to wear. Wingtip kiltie tassel loafers = the trifecta of ugly.
    Never seen them before, but those are neat!

    Hi all, just checking in here. I have been super busy and SF just drifted out of my consciousness for a few months until fall compelled me to break out some tweed. Any quick highlights since mid-August? Oh, and my deepest apologies to any unseen and unreplied PM's that were sent during that period.

    I have been thrifting pretty frequently, actually, but mostly for electronics and housewares. I will try to get photos of my highlights, but they include what I think is a pretty nice silver-trimmed Bavarian porcelain 10pc dinner set in near-mint condition (I know china is common, but not in so large a set or in such great condition), and a Technics SL-PD5 cd player. Also have photos of clothing items laying around somewhere, but will dig them out in time.

    On an unrelated note, for opera-lovers in the NYC area or with Met Live telecast access -- I highly recommend seeing The Nose, by Shostakovich! One of the most visually interesting productions I've seen (though I admittedly have a taste for the modern). A rare treat.

    WHY OH WHY DID I LEAVE HOME TODAY WITHOUT MY SCAVENGER HUNT BADGE?

    [​IMG]


    But I made up for that, three feet later, by pulling out this Canali leather jacket. Both of these items were in the womens outer wear section.
