    Any update on Thriftmas gift exchange? I have been a little swamped and haven't been on here.

    I have been busy because I got a new job! I will be moving to Memphis. Its a job I have been trying to get for over a year.

    Any members on here in Memphis?

    Fuck, there's a guy who lives in my area who drives a brand new drop-top Bentley and always wears a black tank-top and bright white Oakleys.

    There is Chester Perry/C.P. Company but that doesn't look to be Italian sportswear ...

    The problem I find with having kids and the #thriftlife is that the sourcing is the easy bit. Listing is a whole other story.

    Congrats on the new job! Unfortunately I believe the time to sign up for Thriftmas has already come and gone with names being drawn etc... correct me if I’m wrong?

    Signs I'm getting back into Thrift Mode:

    Last night, I dreamed that I found a lightly-worn set of 1940s 501XX Levis at an army surplus store. A woman stole them from my shopping basket. I was confronting her at the checkout counter when I woke up.


    I think I might know this one! There's a defunct Roman bespoke tailor called Carbotti & Paolo. I have a 3-piece suit from them, and it's definitely an ultimate-tier piece. (e.g. Milanese lapel buttonhole, hand-done everythings)

    Post more pics of the piece, we can cross-reference.

    Congrats on the new job. Did you sign up on the Sneaky Santa website and send the donation? I looked and didn't see your SF handle on the list.

    I like the breeze in my pits when I drive my Bentley around your area. The sunglasses were a gift, so, I feel bad not wearing them.
