    Have these, late 80's-90's. Labels and zippers seem to match yours.

    Indigo,double black,shadow (only ones with evidence of being worn,no creases just worn edges) and grey or black two-tone I'm not sure yet

    Also in the past few weeks I've picked up a ton of nice BB SCs one being a 46L one being a flannel triple patch pocket Regent I'm gonna offer to the thread as soon as I get some work squared away.

    @Randomore checkout a Lexus GS series , you will not be disappointed. 2jz engine. heated ,massaging seats. and Log books. = a nice ride..

    LS are nice, but stick with the GS. thank me later.......

    Edit: get a GS , have it fully serviced. (including transmission) get all serviced, and new shocks, you will love it. i promise.

    IS 300?? nice too! perhaps nicer. just when you wanna ride, lexus can do it. comfort, performance. easy.

    next would be an AUDI A6. 2005+ , worth every penny. = my 2 cents.

    Out thrifting for the first time in a while and popped my cashmere cherry. 100% hand knit. A little bitter it's not my size but the handful of canali button downs I just found that fit like a glove helps the healing

    PSA: Dillard's has most of their outerwear at 70% off. Some PRL, Marmot, Pendleton, Woolrich, etc. Decent prices for personal use. Being looking for something like this for a while and decided to go ahead and pull the trigger since it was the last in my size.

    To get free shipping with the RL Jodhpurs I bought (but will be returning) from RL.com, I grabbed about 5 ties. I love the colorways, but just don't think I can make the 3 inch width work with my husky athletic frame. Anyone wants to proxy, I'd be happy to pass along at straight cost +ship. Otherwise, they will be going back Monday. [​IMG]

    So Centuar1 and I noticed a competition in a local paper - 150 dollars for the best thrift store outfit.

    This was our submission:

    Jacket: Vintage Hayward, bespoke
    Shirt: Prada
    Tie: Decaro Sartoria grenadine
    Pants: Zanella
    Shoes: Alden
    Belt: Coach (vintage non-terrible)
    PS: Random handrolled italian

    Zero alterations. I'm so jealous of Centuar1, everything fits him perfectly OTR when I need a gabillion dollars of alteration work XD

    Retail: ~4k
    Paid: 64 and change.

    Dang, I'm a 36x32 in denim (2" cuff) but don't have a similar trade in those sizes. :(


    Almost had my wife convinced on a new Lexus IS-F but the RWD was a dealbreaker. Need AWD here in Minnesota. RWD can be a blast in the snow but can also be a huge pain when you just plain need to get somewhere and 6" of snow just fell.

    Yea, the texture is wonderful. I think I am going to sell them as a lot on the site that we don't speak of...

    I picked up these Loake Chelsea boots on the 'Bay last year for almost nothing (after losing an auction on a similar pair for far more than I paid). Just had them resoled and I'm pretty stoked about the turnout.

    (I had to lighten the photo a little, so there's a filter)
