    Motherload Alert At least for me - I love the feeling when you find one quality shirt in your size and then the next one on the rack is the same maker/different design/your size and then the next one and the next one and soon you realize you've lucked out and found a 'mass' donation.
    I love this feeling. Had it big-time when I scored 10 recent Brioni suits/sportcoats a few years ago. It's been a long time since I've felt this, sadly.

    Nice shirts, but please find these some nice wooden hangers. Plastic tube hangers are not as bad as wire hangers, but they're close.
    Posting from my phone right now. The old lady is hogging the laptop, but I have had quite the thrifting day today. Pics this evening hopefully.
    Oh dear - I'm gonna go ahead and brace myself for jealousy.....

    I found my first Brioni! A navy blazer with those fantastic Brioni buttons. With a little tailoring it should fit my husband well. If not, it'll be up for sale here once I get my 45 days. Also, found a decent pair of shoes to replace his gawdawful Rockports that he calls his "dress shoes" FEH! Blazer $8, shoes $3.

    Technically unimpressive: Vineyard Vines and an all-cotton Claybrooke. However, one transforms you into Andy from The Office; the other looks amazing with a brown linen shirt. [​IMG] Trying to piece together my summer game... EDIT: Which one of you has that pink Burberry cashmere tie up FSOT? I'm positive I have something you waaaaaaaaant!

    And I wish my husband would actually appreciate and/or wear some of my great finds. Ah, well. He'll come around eventually...

    Shoes:

    Got 2 pairs of Polo Ralph Lauren (pretty sure they're made by Crockett & Jones) shoes in 9D They both need heels, but the soles have plenty of life left. Uppers show some wear, but nothing major. Insides need a little attention, but also nothing major. One is light brown. other is dark brown. Both need a good shine, which i will do tomorrow.
