    I know two things about strollers

    1) they transport little people that I dislike
    2) Bobs are expensive

    True thrifts. Southwick cashmere, PRL tweed, PRL leather jacket

    The rest were from consignment stores

    These were just about the thrift pricing.
    Pop on Hermes for non ties. And it's cashmere/silk

    Wool/cashmere. What is this? Like a blazer but has hand pockets?

    This might be another Caraceni for Les Wexner. Tag was ripped out though so I can't tell. It's also an unvented orphan so I left it. Same level of detail, same size and same exact sleeve lining but I don't know if maybe this isn't just a common sleeve lining.

    The one I know is Caraceni.

    The one I'm pretty sure is Caraceni.

    Where the tag would have been.

    Quick snap of today's thrifty attire... Mostly because I need to send a couple LONG overdue shout outs...
    Classic, basic look, with some less formal touches.

    One of my savers has gone full feral. $39.99 for a Ferragamo tie (they have several) with a tag punched right through... last winter I think I paid 8 for a brioni camel hair sc.

    No clue...I'm in New York and it's full of grails - almost like no one is hitting the stores today.

    I like when Goodwill tries that and it backfires. A few months back, one of the two that I stop by on my lunch breaks had a recent Armani Collezioni SC marked at $50. I ended up grabbing it when the color tag had its $1.99 day. The cashier looked baffled and seemed to not want to sell it to me for a split second.

    Still can't sell the thing so the jokes on me....

    Goodwill here has gotten around to marking as much of the recognizable brand name items that they can find as "Julia's Attic Boutique" items, which are exempt from color tags.

    Saw today a very dated Armani suit tagged for 129.99 and a less dated Zegna for NM sport coat for 49.99 (nice fabric and pattern, but size 60L EU, so no go for me haha)

    Thankfully, they don't catch all of it, so there are still some deals to be had.
