    I stopped by a goodwill in schaumburg today on the way home from seeing my new niece in the hospital, absolutely nothing! Well, there was 2 to 3 faconnable shirts, but meh.

    Never got a chance to head up your way unfortunately.

    Picked up a pair of Hanover Sheppard Signature Longwings with the suicide heels. Size 10.5 D/B. They are in really great shape. They will be up for sale/trade.

    Also I have seen quite a bit of Gant clothing lately. What is worth picking up? Some of the shirts I have seen are made in Hong Kong,bit some of the other items didn't look that desirable.

    @alan that is a pretty cool suitcase. I almost went to that store today actually, but I have found it to be one of the worst stores in the metro. It's huge but I never find anything there... even when it was in Olathe it sucked. Maybe I just need to go more often. Going to PM you back about those jeans in a a bit

    Suits all look like they'll fit well with minimal alterations, so I'll probably be keeping them. Tagged 40R. I'm usually a 38 but it fits right.
