    I'd go where the people posting the killer hauls are - NY, LA, Miami / WPB.

    Midwest outside of Chicago I'd be looking for outerwear, vintage workwear, etc.

    If you plan on thrifting, go to Seattle or LA. No real reason to go elsewhere.

    No, don't. Went back to the Zegna/Kiton store, only came up with a Versace scarf. Oh well, back to listing.

    I've been finding consistently better/cheaper more frequent hauls and items here in Arkansas than I did in Palm Beach (with the exception of the vicuña and lp baby cashmere of course)

    In the spirit of full disclosure, the two Hermes had some light staining. Will be mailed to Tiecrafters sometime this week.

    No Kiton or anything but some ok stuff. Gonna keep some stuff just not sure what yet. Not pictured are some AE graysons that I am gonna hold on to. Gonna hold out now until Veterans Day when most stores are half off! In no order we have: Vintage wool fair isle vest, Boston traders wool sweater, Marks and Spencer cashmere sweater made in UK, cashmere beanie, two wool/silk scares, Patagonia vest, leather/cashmere lined gloves, NWOT PRL leather gloves, Gucci scarf (real?) and some silk squares.

    I have no reason to doubt the legitimacy of these as they look to be well made but might as well verify with @SpooPoker. I believe these are wimmenz but I would rock em if they were my size. (They're 39.5 EU and available.)
