    @Shoeluv Awesome. There should be a second box arriving shortly, if it hasn't yet. Sorry for the delay! Happy Thriftmas!

    Huge thanks to @AlexJ1100 for a completely awesome gift box! Very generous and very thoughtful!!

    I'll snap a couple pics in a bit to show off some of my new cool stuff, wanted to post official thanks while I had a couple minutes to do so.

    Sorry it took me a bit to post that it arrived, been a crazy holiday season so far. Your gift is very much appreciated!! :slayer:

    Edit: here's a few quick pics:
    A couple of great ties, Harris Tweed in a superb light heathered blue (that fits perfectly, btw!!) with a very cool lining, and a very thoughtful note.

    Also, a very nice forest green pocket square, and a pair of amazing and thoughtfully chosen cufflinks that I will definitely enjoy. Not wonderful pictures I'm afraid, but they have a pair of crossed shotguns with a duck flying above.
    [​IMG]

    And finally, not pictured are a few good sized pieces of elephant hide that I'll need to come up with a use for (not hard, already have a few ideas...), and some completely amazeballs - no pun intended - Kentucky bourbon filled chocolate balls, which I have been savoring.

    Thanks again dude! Great stuff!

    A huge shoutout to @ChetB for an insanely generous Thriftmas. I received a Large FR & a Medium FR from him and waited until this morning to open it.

    First a few accessories

    From Left to Right:

    Robert Talbott Carmel - Wool (I absolutely love this and it is now in my tie drawer)
    Charvet Silk Tie - (I think this is a first for me a Charvet with no pulls)
    Turnbull & Asser Silk Tie
    PTO Silk - Pocket Square
    Etro Silk - Pocket Square (This is my new favorite square it is gorgeous)

    A few pairs of pants in my size

    Ralph Lauren Purple Label wool pants
    Billy Reid - NWT Khakis (I love these and these are now replacing a pair of Peter Millar as my new Goto khakis)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    A few jackets:
    Ermenegildo Zegna - You nailed it here, this thing fits perfect and I absolutely love the colors, this is going in my closet near the top of my rotation.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Samuelsohn Corduroy jacket (This will replace an old Calvin Klien jacket my wife got me a few years ago)
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Finally a RRL Jean Jacket, I was sad cause it is a little short on me; then my (almost) 13 year old grabbed it and said this is cool tried it on and it fit him perfectly... Little bastard.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I am stunned by your generosity, impressed that this stuff was thrifted. Most of all I am stoked that most of this I will be keeping and I love it.

    Merry Thriftmas all!

    I'm having a hard time tagging @irksm, but he hooked up the streetwear. Huge thanks for the rad BoO shirt and gauzy United Arrows zip hoodie. The shirt fits perfect but the hoodie is a little small. My wife likes it though so it'll go to good use. Thanks bud you rock.

    Thanks to my SS @Hoofit for the gift. A few ties, a couple of mint vintage Pendleton scarfs and this huge book covering the history of Ralph Lauren's work. Thanks a bunch!

    Shouts to @330CK, my Secret Santa! I got a dibs on a future find and some of the local FL roast. I plan to be in a pretty sorry state tomorrow so I'm looking forward to a cup!

    Cross post from thrift thread. Big thanks to @HansderHund and @capnwes for organizing this years Thriftmas Exchange!

    I was lucky enough to have @HansderHund as my secret Santa this year, and all I can say is wow!!! Got an awesome set of items including a superb cashmere scarf, tie, Saphir renovateur (which I'm very excited to try out!), and a Beretta jacket (and it fits)!! He also included a handwritten note which is always much appreciated! Already looking forward to next year!

    Shout out to who I assume is @GM-H for the gifts... (I'm basing the assumption on the initials of the sender)


    2005 model Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Vest

    Fall 2001 model Men's Velocity O2 Shell, which is especially awesome... I have an older one of these which has a busted zipper. Now I'll have two once I get the zipper replaced!

    And a couple of toques.
