    I'll go ahead and nominate myself, with a recent find of mine! Best part, jacket is staying for personal use, even though I could certainly make immense amounts of money off it.

    Deerskin Leather - Butter soft
    Cashmere / Wool Lined
    MINT COND

    How is anyone not nominating the guy with the NWOB John Lobb cowboy boots that retail for $15K? IMO, he should win.

    Hope to post pics of my nice finds before the deadline [​IMG]

    I nominate Troika's Arnys Forestiere. [​IMG]

    Did some reading the model started in the late 40's. How often do they update it or how often do they re-release it?

    I know it's generally bad form to talk about how much you paid, and how much you sold it for, but I wonder if it would be more appropriate to include that info in this thread?

    The hickey freeman overcoat, a few pages back, is beautiful. But my jaw dropped when he posted how much it sold for....

    Speaking of A&S finds - how about the thrift synergy award for eddievddr10 and myself finding two A&S tuxedos from the same donor on the same day in two separate stores?
