    First, big thank you to @Nataku for a great deal. Solid guy.

    Next a request: if anyone has any experience with Hucklecote outerwear (selling or just general knowledge), please PM me and let's talk.

    Probably shoulda passed, as there doesn't seem to be much interest in larger sizes. Hopefully eBay likes the irish-ness.

    Not exactly what I expected to find at a beach thrift... Worth $7.99?

    Side lighthearted rant - My mom has always been a "crafter", stamping, scrapbooking, everything. I've benefited a ton from this from custom needlepoint items to a very in depth childhood scrapbook. Her new project over the past year or so has been "felting", in which you take old wool clothing and wash/dry it on very high heat, causing the weave to shrink drastically. This makes a very solid "felt" material that she uses to make all kinds of stuff. The problem is, knowing my interest in clothes, she never consults me before essentially destroying some of these items. Last year I snagged an amazing HSM Herringbone full length coat. Some may question their items, but this was pretty awesome. I wore it a bunch last year and never failed to get a compliment every time. I've been home a lot in the past week due to a death in the family and have made a habit of "thrifting" through the stuff she has on the chopping block before they're shrunk. Couple items below I saved from her, unfortunately she also tends to save all the old tags she cuts off of these items, and I lost count of the Vintage Woolrich, Orvis, BB, and Pendleton tags I saw.

    US Made Pendleton Jacket
    Not really sure what this style is called. Reminds me if a letterman jacket and a western jacket had a child. I'd think it'd be sweet with an old motorcycle/what have you patch over the initials.

    LL Bean for myself - in love with the color/pattern

    Yeah, it's a really cool fabric. I wish it fit me so much, but I'm a 36, and the 38 just is a tad too big :(

    So a few things to show you.
    First an thrift that was way too good a deal for them to have known what it was.
    [​IMG]
    A very nice addition to my closet.

    Then a thrift from earlier today. Tuesday is 50 cents day at the thrift outlet. I try and hit it at least once a month but usually not much to be found except fun stuff. Today however:
    [​IMG]
    Never seen this tag in the wild before. Assuming it is a woman's as no interior pockets and just the tags you see. Nice and soft although I don't think it is cashmere. Pockets still basted shut. If anyone knows more please let me know.
    And finally something I did not buy. Hoping one of you will let me know if was a mistake.

    Can always try going back.
    Thanks

    Any slim 44 R or S dudes looking for a casual, thick cotton olive suit for personal wear? Might even work for a larger 42R.

    I have a lead on a Kiton-made piece at deep discount. Just pm me if interested.

    Picked up a couple things today, both available.

    Don't usually pick up Hugo Boss but I always make exceptions for that sweet Loro Piana cashmere blend.
