    Picked up a lovely grey flannel 3/2 roll trad suit today. Oldest J Press label I've ever seen. From 1950.

    Can this vest get any cooler?

    The tactile sensation evoked by luxury fabrics is probably my main motivation for thrifting. That Hermes is notably softer than the four Scottish cashmere sweaters I own, and I can only dream of the rat vest. Did you know Robert Graham makes hats?

    Belts are probably the least useful Robert Graham items

    Dammit, man. You miss five days, you've got like another Russian novel to contend with. I'm trying to keep up, but feel I'm drowning. Can someone just tell me if:

    - Takai posted the Rolex
    - Jompso posted the Vicuna
    - Anyone killed or quit over these dust-ups?

    Where's BP with his Thrift Minutes when you need him?

    Hello. Batman sheets to follow. PMs to be answered soon.
