It's getting nearly impossible to pull anything from a thrift. It's probably been a year since I've seen a wearable tie. I'm finding I really have to hustle to get my hands on an interesting piece. A few things the thread will like. The recliner replaces the other one I found and sold this winter.

Yeah its been dry lately but cant complain as last month was my best ever with 2 recent EZ suits some recent canali for personal and a current BC. Some of you here... just wow. Now for something that isnt amazing but I like the slow, patient hunt sometimes:

A personal pop on Facconable, which I pass on constantly because its overrated and the thrifts overprice it but this 3 roll 2 corduroy with very soft shoulders and light construction fits me perfectly... even the surgeon's cuffs arent a dealbreaker as the arms are an excellent length. Watched it for over a month and snagged at half off as it was overpriced. Yes new it was certainly overpriced at Neiman Marcus as well because its got light fusing and made in Romania but its an ideal travel blazer for me, requiring no alterations and decent enough quality to subject to the abuses of travel. Meant to be for a few bucks.

Maybe not brag-worthy, but I like this tie, and I'm trying to remember where I've seen this logo. Anyone know the maker?

Some good finds lately.
Hartmann all-leather case:



I braved the Savers 1/2 off sale because I hid a Brooks SC in the women's section the day b4. It was gone, but I did get these. They must have just put these out because everything else was shite:


Patagucci day pack. Already sold:


Thick cotton (and selvedge!) work shirt. Really impressed with this one. Probably unavailable:



Pleated pents, $8. And, check out the center belt loop and snap crotchal flaps!




3X VTG political shirts. $2 each. That Trump dude will like these, lol.


Something for personal. I shared one of these recently. I had to return that one as the security tag really made a hole in it. I think that last one was from Macys. TJ maxx did a much better job:


All these are my size, but the Zanetti made in China fits me the best :oops: Zegna and Canali $10 each; zanetti $4.







Robert Barakeet for $2. I've been looking for a polo shirt with a long "lay flat" heavy collar for a long time. When I throw on a SC with a regular polo shirt, I look like Jim Gaffigan doing a set:

The scuttlebutt online is Jacob Roberts for Nordstrom. The RN# goes to "Mannex Cravats of California".
Thank you! Mannex didn't mean anything to me, but Jacobs Roberts does.

Lunch time OCD, the bottom tweed from J.K. Bowling I found a couple months ago not knowing without the original strap, marginal, silly strap is worth 2 to 3 times the bag. Today, voila!
