    Finds from today. All one stop. Mostly unusual finds for me, but the eBay comps for some of this stuff are pretty nice.

    Okay, I'm pretty stoked I was able to salvage it. The sleeves are loose and not sure if I should spend the money to taper it.

    The wash went well and made it slightly more fitted. That was some dank water.

    The store you decided to skip
    If he's convicted all his stuff is forfeit to the feds according to the indictment, so they'll auction it all off.

    The feds will try to maximize their return by consigning them with Linda. Prepare for a bunch of "long sleeve, v-neck, button front, government owned" suits.

    "Old Man Style" Thrifting Finds...

    Outfit #1: Hart Schaffner & Marx Gold Trumpeter Linen blue windowpane sport jacket ($10.00 plus $8.75 shipping on eBay) with cotton dress khakis ($1.50 Goodwill) and Alan Flusser 100% cotton dress shirt ($3.50 Goodwill).

    Outfit #2: 3-button, ventless blue all-season wool blazer (shown above) by Calvin Klein (white label) purchased on eBay for $10.00 ($7.50 shipping). Turnbury 100% cotton shirt ($2.00 Goodwill) and Alexander Julian Colours Tie ($1.00 Goodwill).

    Both outfits accessorized with a white cotton pocket square with a color rolled edge. Only .99 cents per square on eBay (I purchased them in a range of stitched color edges). They come from China, free shipping, took about two weeks to arrive.

    This is proof that dropping $10k on high end stuff isn’t always the best route. Awesome fits man
