    Found a Tom James custom (not sure if bespoke) suit for $7.99. No fabric label. Passed because it was from '93 (with all that that implies) with a short inseam. Did I make a mistake? Also a nice Southwick linen/cotton sport coat w/ real MOP buttons that I also passed on because of sizing. Don't know if the flipping thing is for me, so I'm only buying pieces I can wear.

    My best thrift find so far (for me) was 5 current J.Crew mainline shirts in my size with no signs of wear.

    I need to find better stores.

    Jay Kos is an instakop for me if it's a tailored piece. A Jay Kos Harris Tweed overcoat though? Whoa! :drool:

    In before everyone dumps their thriftening finds today.

    This one though, I thought was pretty awesome.

    pretty sure its a custom job, I think Wes had a suit once and I do too - it wasn't common but has been a thing to do hermes scarf linings for custom pieces. Looks to be from the 70s 80s era when custom furs were all the rage.
