    Anyone here from the US have a go-to "suede/leather expert" that operates through the internet? Similar to something like tie crafters but for cleaning jackets. PM me if you got a place plz. Thanks!

    Spring is officially here! 50% off at the local Village for this Canali french cuff? Sure. Just need tapering.

    And these long wingtips I cleaned and conditioned today. Maybe circa 1950-1960 as per a Facebook suggestion. Made in Canada by Brown's.

    Little pickups today.

    Paid up for this ($150) so not true thrift. NWOT though and super nice. Comps looked good. Wool cash blend and current. Believe it's still on Saks for $3k?

    Bought these for the buttons (true thrift) HSM and BB.

    And a little tie haul. Mostly Talbotts. Trump was from another store. True thrift PPU $3/ea. These were a few tags old, must be nobody around that area.

    Forgot these lil guys. Managed to scoop all these for true thrift. Don't normally mess with old bobbys but these were pretty current, ended up snagging 14 in different colors. Super soft cotton and paid (I guess some mistagged half off) about $4 a piece. Miscellaneous fodder crap didn't make the cut. Going to hit it again tomorrow and prep for the 12 hour weekend sourcing days.

    Most H Stocktons I've seen are great quality. They're mostly (if not all) Talbotts. Nice snag!

    Any recommendations for getting smoke out of ties? Just picked up a stable of grenadines, but they all have cigarette smells. Would hate to return them. They are mint minus the smell.

    Would freezing ties damage it? It's how you get the smell out of jeans.

    First thing to try is hang them outdoors in a covered location for a few days.
    Next I would try placing in a plastic bag with some coffee beans.
