    It's been a motley, more rough than diamonds couple of weeks but it was punctuated by some interesting pops and a few things for personal use that I'm particularly happy about. Available unless otherwise noted.

    Gamo, Hermes, Burberry Logo, kickass Altea tweed - All NA except the burb (the hermes has a light stain on the front, might sell if I can remove it)

    [​IMG]

    Standouts:

    [​IMG]

    Trifecta of Talbott avian ties, all silk/wool woven in England. Pheasant tie in middle is NA

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pickings have been slim as far as leathers go, but I'm not complaining:

    [​IMG]

    40"

    [​IMG]

    Alden (I presume) for Brooks Bros. Funny store, I found these shoes a half size larger earlier this year; they were ultimately a hair too big to work for me. These fit perfectly. Pretty dried out when I found them but some conditioner and polish did wonders.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Previous owner was kind of enough to fit them out with a pretty fresh Italian sole before donating. Nice.

    [​IMG]


    Shirts? Shirts.

    BB Golden Fleece. Pretty serious upgrade to standard BB shirting. Italian fabric, made in the states, mops. 15-34.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Saturdays (pop) pearl gray OCBD. XL but fits me pretty well. Grabbed for novelty, might use it for a shitkicker oxford.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    NWT CP company military (sorta) (pop) shirt, made in Italy. 17.5

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A truly sick Rubinnaci Oxford with a wild jacquard patchwork pattern. My size but a bit big. I really want to keep it, super nicely made and I've certainly not seen its like before.

    [​IMG]


    Ralphie red stripe oxford to fill a wardrobe gap, nice big mops.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is probably my favorite shirt find ever. Old ass states-made BB Fun Shirt, fits exactly the one one wants old Brooks Bros to fit. NA.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All business in the back. Sort of. Love the switch to subtle blue variations.

    [​IMG]




    Pants

    Including the nicest pair of shorts I've ever seen..

    [​IMG]

    Pop! Never expected to find Vacca shorts. All cotton, 38.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some M2 light blue twills from the ever-solid Bills Khakis, 32

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Double Arr Ell cargo trousers, made in the states, 38x30

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Been had donegal tweed trousers, made right here in the states. Size 36, all wool.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tweed is thick as hell and well-speckled.

    [​IMG]


    Some Billy Reid twill chinos for myself. USA made, real sturdy.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And lastly a bevy of brooks bros cords

    [​IMG]

    All same stats.

    [​IMG]

    To whomever it is that keeps donating Verdera pants in my size: don't ever let the world change you.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Although maybe get rid of some stuff in a winter fabric? Just a thought.

    [​IMG]

    Some decent sportcoat finds. Not pictured is a cashmere Burberry London sportcoat whose moth holes I missed on my instore once-over.

    I don't usually cop j crew, but I make an exception for ludlow stuff - especially when it comes in an italian fabric. 42.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Ditto for standard Brooks Bros blazers, but italy+LP fabric I fux with.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And I damn well never leave behind that good old BB madras. 38, pretty slim.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Giorgio Armani black label windowpane blazer in Reda super 120s. The fabric is soft enough to mistake for cashmere. 40R, made in Italy. Anyone recognize the tags?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And my favorite tailoring find for myself in a while-

    [​IMG]

    A perfectly rumpled J press summer tweed with fabric by magee of Ireland. no content tags but the material is a gauzy sage green herringbone thats likely a linen or silk blend with wool. Planning to wear the hell out of it this fall. Funny, its kind of the inverse of the brown J Press Harris Tweed I found last month.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some interesting outerwear comeups:

    Pop! Sierra Designs 60/40 parka, L

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    "franco" had to mark his territory. I'll assume it was either Jame's or Dave's.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    An old school US Navy slicker/poncho. A little beat but still pretty intact. Is this the vintage militaria I'm looking for?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Virgin wool Filson liner jacket, another pop. A standalone item from filson, although it would have been nice to find it with a matching tin cruiser.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Been had black linen safari jacket - shirtweight and really really cool. Has some damage on the shoulder so I think I may keep for personal use, although I'll have to get the arms slimmed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another new one for me: Beretta sport quilted jacket, 100% cashmere (!) with leather details, sick buttons, and a thermor lining. Has a bit of damage but way too awesome to leave behind. Made in Italy, 44.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And lastly -

    [​IMG]

    Two copies of take ivy! Been hoping to stumble across this for a while :) one's for me, the other is available.

    That's it fellas, may the thrift gods smile upon your endeavors!

    I've been looking to snag take ivy for a while. Great find! I posted some finds before but now I'll post something I didn't grab which I probably should have. Had some stains that I wasn't sure would come out. Good ol BB madras. [​IMG]

    Wes, Very sorry to hear about your dog. Went through the same thing with our black lab a few years ago. It's tough... :(

    A few questions:

    Thought these were Rubinacci (London House) but these are NH. Any ideas on maker? Really well made.

    [​IMG]

    Any of you denim heads have any idea who made these? They were dirt cheap for still, heavy selvedge jeans so I grabbed them regardless of not knowing the maker.

    Lots more stuff but my mother in law's internet is frustratingly slow so I'll leave you with these.
