    I'm sure I wouldn't know. I haven't worn a bow tie since high school...maybe a wedding or something I'm forgetting.
    When I come back from 8-10 days in Mexico, I'm sure I look pretty damn sketchy.

    ...maybe ATLjon? I wish I had picked a different username...I joined when I was a noob to this forum as well as thrifting so it was fitting at the time. Wish I could change it.


    Prepare for an onslaught of PM's. Nice find!

    Fuck.... To those asking about the canali suit.

    [​IMG]

    First time finding a suit in my size mint, look how close to perfect that is. Ignore the large toes and t shirt.

    Took half a day off work to hit the thrifts, had a pretty good day.

    First stop, Brooks Brothers made in England opera pumps.
    [​IMG]

    Aaaaaaand this Polo Ralph Lauren blackwatch duffel bag.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next up, Goodwill on half off day. Zegna Su Misura. Couple small spots that the dry cleaner shouldn't have trouble with.

    [​IMG]

    Totally psyched when I saw this. I know it's not crazy high-end selvedge, but I almost NEVER find any in Cincinnati. So, Spurr made in USA, yes please.

    [​IMG]

    Couple pairs Brooks Brothers dress trousers, the one in back is Madison fit in navy.

    [​IMG]

    Remember what I said about never finding selvedge? Tried to check out with the purchases above, register went down. As I was walking to the other register, I saw an upturned hem on a pair of jeans in the ladies "premium" clothes... oooohhhhhh yeah. NWT Naked & Famous. $29 originally, but half off? Yes Definitely!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next stop, another cherry pop - Hanover LB Sheppard (wish they could have been shell). And some Florsheim monkstraps, should do okay on that other site.

    [​IMG]

    Several shirts as well - Luciano Barbera, Canali, Paul & Shark.

    [​IMG]

    Last but not least, Hickey Freeman in Loro Piana Super 120s.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (not pictured: 4 pairs NWOT Brooks Brothers Clark chinos for $2.50 apiece, BB tie).

    Those look like Speakers, on the sofa. Are those Paradigm (little blurry)?


    Depends - I have my pages set to 50 posts per, so I see 3500 pages. I think you can set it as high as 100 posts per page...then go on vacation and come back to "only" 3 or 4 pages to catch up on.


    I like that bag! Never seen one like that - is the main body a PVC-type material, or something else?


    PM sent to dude - thank you for the tip!
