    Koala...have you ever seen an elephant that's pink? Me neither.

    Captn has the idea, except those are pink ones on the tie. Pink albino whales.

    Major props to @Snoogz for another awesome Thriftmas gift (he was my Secret Santa last year too!). A thoughtful, hand-written card, a good bottle of wine to go with dinner tonight, and last month's issue of The Rake (what a great magazine!) along with a full year subscription(!). Thanks again man! :cheers:

    A hearty thank you to @MJMcRibb , who packed the box full of choice pieces of menswear.

    Since my camera work is shitty and the lighting in my living room sucks ....

    KILLER BB Madison Sportcoat in a 39 R. This thing looks like it was barely worn; and sure enough, I found the receipt in the pocket. June 2014. (My wife saw this and exclaimed, "That's a Roy Williams special." It may be a bit muted for ol' Roy, though.)

    Christmas color Lands End knit ties
    Hilarious Full MoonSanta (Chipp)
    Staple as hell wool BB tie
    Two Zegna shirts
    A vintage Lanvin pocket square
    And an amazing Aquascutum pure cashmere scarf that my wife has already taken from me.

    Thanks again, man.

    I mentioned this on the thrift brag thread, but this morning I opened my box from @highvoltorb and inside was a great gift!

    A great very interesting shirt. And a collection of ties (one of which worked perfectly with my suit I was wearing, so I decided to wear it to Court today) a handwritten note and an awesome set of Cufflinks from the 1969 Nixon Inagural Ball! As a history buff and a collector of Political memorabilia, this was a very special gift indeed.

    I can wear these along with the Reagan inauguration Blazer Buttons from @drlivingston

    Glad you liked it! The cufflinks were more of an e-thrift as you could have guessed, but they were way too cool to pass up.

    A much more formal thanks is on its way soon, but I'll just give a preemptive :fistbump: to @GMMcL for my gift. My fiancée loves her gift too!

    Huge shoutout to my secret Thriftmaser, who basically sent me a perfect complete outfit. I'm blown away, this went way beyond anything I expected. I'll reveal who sent this bounty but the clothes were colour coded to give a clue to his identity. See last photo - any guesses?
