    Indiana dudes: I'm'ma be in Indianapolis the week of Christmas. Probably have one day where I can get out and thrift. I am usually up north around the Fishers area, but have yet to have any luck there on my previous trips. Is it worth it to try anywhere in the city? Or should I just pick another well-to-do suburb and try that instead.

    TIA!

    Dale of Norways are always Insta-Kop, unless totally destroyed or shrunken. I love this time of year, because the thrifts around here save them up over the year and put em on the Christmas racks right about now.

    I can't find much info on Google but I find the BBCC to be usually of fantastic cloth and their dress shirts use MOP although usually too big and boxy. Pretty underrated just wish the styling was a little slimmer

    Received my Thriftmas Gift on Saturday I think. I just had to open the box to make sure it was not a Cordovan by Cap'n job, but I will wait 'til my thriftmas partner is ready to open his before I explore the contents.

    Coincidentally (I verified with Hans) ended up getting the same person who got me.....so from his prior post, I know the heaviness is some sort of adult beverage (no leaking, so I guess it survived the trip).

    So, @My Main Man let me know when you are ready to open them!

    I actually really like Club Monico. Their dress shirts pretty much all have MOP buttons but I have a few specially made in Italy (most are made in China) and the cloth and fit is incredible. I have one sweater and I agree it is awesome, I wear it often. I'm not so familiar with their labels and it is difficult for me to identify recent and old however. I also didn't know they were owned by Polo. I wonder who makes the made in Italy stuff then.

    I also find the made in china stuff to be decent but not as nice as the made in Italy and I like how there's no logos plastered all over everything.

    TLDR; I agree

    I actually opened mine last night. I was sitting around the house and thought, "eh, it's basically December. I'm going to open it." The Zegna sweater jumped to the top of my sweater rotation. That thing is incredible. I'll say it again when I post pics but thank you so much. Everything in there fit and all of it is 100% my style.

    I snapped some pics last night and was going to post today. I remember there being a font/size/spoiler request the last few times. Is that still happening? Could someone refresh my memory?

    But yeah, open that box. (and enjoy all of the gallons of milk i sent)
