    Nice to know there are some true thrifts still out there. Even my best store would have that at $20, other places $30-60

    The two I've found recently were both under ten. The one place typically has high prices too. After I paid I told her I was surprised it was so cheap. She said that's because it's a fake, there's no s in Burberry.

    I love thrifting.

    Here's a thread first. Found a seven fold tie at my local 99 cents store. They have a small tie section but they always suck so badly. Well this one doesn't. Not bad for a dollar.

    Found this in the Halloween section at Goodwill:

    Jacket: 19" seam to seam at the underarm, to fit a chest to 38" max. Will fit waist to 32" max. White belt is soiled, not sure how to clean it properly.

    [​IMG]

    Pants: 31XL. Inseam 34". Small white mark of some kind on front of pants, probably come out easily with dry cleaning.

    [​IMG]

    No gloves, no cover. This should never have been in 'costumes', so I picked it up and am looking for a Marine in need of dress blues who can wear these measurements.

    You have to admit, Marines got style.

    Could be Astrakhan if it's old, or faux-Astrakhan (a form of boiled wool), if less so. Either way it would be heavy. Former would be expensive (and is considered a bit inhumane these days).

    The other option would be Casetino or similar, but it looks a bit finer in texture than that.
