    always a good idea to check out the women's, i found a Hermes scarf once that i sold for $95 on the bay, i got it for $4.95!!

    Great find on the Hermes scarf! I found one a while back on a clip hanger in with the placemats. Gave me achance to research fake vs. real and I was thrilled to find it was the real thing (less than $1)! I never look at the placemat section in quite the same way now.

    Haven't posted in a while because I took a little break from thrifting/stopped finding anything. However, I felt I had to post today what I found in a local shop that has historically produced DIDDLY for me. Polo 3 roll 2 Made in Italy 100% Flax Unstructured SC. 42R. My pictures don't capture the color at all, it is a gorgeous vibrant navy blue, just a perfect summer SC. [​IMG] [​IMG] Right next to it: not measured but probably around a 38R. [​IMG] [​IMG] And finally, right next to that, something I never would have picked up in my pre-SF days, but only picked up because it had quality written all over it. Handwork, full canvass, surgeons cuffs, beautiful flannel fabric, made in Italy......Got home and looked it up, what I found was promising [​IMG] 42R [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Left my complaining family in the car and ran into a thrift store I've never been in tonight.
    5 pairs of Zanella pants and one pair of Ermenegildo Zegna pants, total price under $10.

    Amazing finds, but this one if my favorite? Suit or jacket?

    It's changed quite a bit since I've worked there. So clean and organized. It used to be a dump. SA is trying hard to be Goodwill as of late.

    ^^^Unfortunately I believe it is an orphan, however the styling lends it useful as a SC, unless I'm horribly mistaken. i looked all over for the pants, but no dice. I'll be returning every few days to see if they are put out.

    Green v-neck that fits really well and is insanely comfy, a nice linen/cotton windbreaker type jacket with cool sleeve zippers n shit, track jacket, and a belt that matches the green shirt 100% perfectly [​IMG]

    I just sold 2 pair of Polo, 100% Flax, Made in Italy trousers over in B&S. The fabric is incredible. It has the look and drape of high quality linen, but the hand is much nicer. Very soft and smooth. If that jacket is anything like those trousers you got a great coat.

    Very nice finds on the other two items as well.
