    Vince does well for me, but I've only ever picked up their cashmere or cashmere-wool stuff.

    Also

    1) @dazedstate is a valued trading partner who gave me a kick ass deal on a pair of suede Magnanis that I'm pretty sure have been worn like once.

    2) @thriftydood just KEEPS HOOKING IT UP!

    @chetb I keep a pretty detailed spreadsheet of my intake. The only thing I don't have done is extensive keyword tagging. I have about 15 keywords that I filter/report on. The most difficult and sometimes unsettling part is looking at sell through rate vs. profit broken down by keyword and really seeing where I have missed out. My next problem is to start observing seasonality impact on keywords/categories.

    @impuntura what size are those AE? Look great.

    Had a pretty fantastic day.

    Started out by seeing @silverwarebandit 's post that included a hat trick of Alden shell. Sent him a PM to ask about availability, especially of his PTBs. Not my size. In light of that, I decided to make a run during lunch and found these:

    [​IMG]

    My own hat trick of Alden shell, in my size. Left are short wings in excellent condition, middle are PTBs in need of a new heel and a serious cleaning (made for Brooks Bros), and right are saddles (though no contrasting color on the upper). This makes 4 pairs of Alden shell I've found in the last week, having only found about three more pairs of shell of any brand previously.

    Other highlights from the day:

    [​IMG]

    Really cool vintage made in USA Woolrich that's all mine.

    [​IMG]

    Vintage made in USA Eddie Bauer with Harris Tweed and suede detailing. First EB I've ever bought.

    [​IMG]

    Action back!

    [​IMG]

    Schott down puffer that needs a surface stain removed

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Bros made in USA with a great liner.

    And why not?

    Other finds from today included another Zegna windowpane SC in Trofeo wool, great BB silk/wool glen plaid SC from 2012, and some very nice Vanderbilt University sport coat buttons. Also found some genuine horn SC buttons on a jacket to be put on a solid navy Suitsupply orphan to convert it to SC status.

    THAT'S NOT ALL:

    Last week I finished a huge event that my company put on and we had record numbers. One of my board members decided he'd like to thank me. I'm typing on a brand new MacBook Air and have a Suitsupply Napoli suit on the way to me. So not exactly thrifted, but free counts, right?
