    I, like eazye, went running out of the house after troika posted his row haul. I didn't find much.


    BB University Shop - I'm guessing 60's from the lapels?

    Pulled the RLPL from that store today, must have been minutes apart. Though about picking that suit up but forgot to see if it was worth while before I left. Pretty decent ll bean vintge suede there also but way overpriced

    If in decent shape and sewn well, I'd pick it up. That's the exact jacket my mom had when I was a kid. My dad had a blue one.

    The good: 7 pairs of Pantherella's (discount store), vintage Orvis Gore-Tex rain coat, recent HSM suit and staple grey HF suit, and 4 mint Robert Talbott BOC ties.
    The sad: left a Zegna Su Misura 15 Mil Mil suit behind. Severe stain on the jacket and pee stains in the pants. :( Finest suit I've come across in my thrifting time yet. Too bad

    Why do so many people pee in nice suits. I don't get it.
    Why do so many people pee in nice suits? Same thing happened to me today with a super nice staple navy G&Hs. Pee stains in the pants like crazy. Gross.

    I'm guessing that peed in suits are more likely to be donated than suits that haven't been peed in.

    Might it be old men with bladder problems? I'm just shy of 40 yet haven't had the pleasure of peeing my pants in 35ish years, a sad new goal one wishes never to fulfill.

    Got this over a week ago, but I've been busy and haven't had a chance to post much. Saw the return address on the package and was instantly...

    Opened it up. Packaging was lovely. Keychain, ribbon, and...

    My first Drakes tie! Dead sexy and extra-long to boot. Wore it with a navy suit and killed it.

    Thanks Spoo!

    I've kinda painted the picture of a 90 year old retired financial advisor with raging alcoholism and a penchant for teenage hookers. One can only dream of such a life....

    Listing some of today's finds on eBay right now, spinning some Bill Evans and drinking some Pinot. Not a bad Sunday night.
