    From this weekend:

    Slate blue Pal Zileri suit -- The jacket is unlined and the whole feel of it is of a nice lightweight summer suit. It is from the diffusion "Pull" line but it is still pretty nice and fits me well.

    Bluish/Green Canali suit -- 3 button which I like, even though it is largely SF frowned upon. Fits me like a glove.

    Beige/white stripe linen jacket from Nils Sundstrom -- Never heard of the brand but the jacket is very nice.

    Yellow with red paisely tie by Seaward and Stern

    Blue check BB non-iron shirt with FC -- nice workhorse piece.

    Thrift store bargains are few and far between here in the Rust Belt, so I was happy to nab a $75 NWT Polo belt for $10 shipped on the 'bay.

    :laugh: I still think we need a separate thread for this. My creepiest thrift store moments are still courtesy of the dude copping pee-stained pants and the one old guy just standing there staring at the middle school cheerleading outfit and being all like :nodding: .


    EDIT: And the gd camera-sized ceiliing holes right over the dressing rooms...and nowhere else. :uhoh:

    That gif is a lot of how it felt, except he looked way more like Rip Taylor than Jack N.

    Had a pretty rough weekend at work so I decided to treat myself to an hour of thrifting. Went to one store and picked up a grey PRL half-zip sweater. On the way home, I decided to stop at a consignment store that I sometimes frequent but rarely buy anything due to pretty high pricing for not much quality, but today I found a couple of nice things.

    (for everyone else: Mr. Toscano and I met up this weekend to exchange some wares. Great guy, btw. Way too generous.)

    Yes...I did meet future barrister MattR and his lovely fiancee/girlfriend. He is added to the list of people to whom I will inevitably turn for pro bono legal advice once the bodies are found in the crawlspace. At least I know he'll dress well at the hearing.

    I like that Canali SC, I am usually 46L, but I fit some 44L's. I a few too many trades going on now, hard to keep it together, but PM me and let me know if there is anything you want / need.

    Wow! :laugh:

    My thrifting luck has sucked lately. Today though, the "tax season" luck found me. After a disappointing walk around one of my weekly-hit stores, I went to the other weekly-hit store. I go to both as if one doesn't have anything, the other one will usually make up for it.

    Walk in and see a semi well-dressed guy flipping through the suit rack looking at labels. "Damn!" I high-tailed it to the opposite end of the rack and went into power-thrift mode. Bang! One, two three Oxxford suits right off the bat. Then a fourth - a cool tan checkered suit. Further down, a black Oxxford "Pure Cashmere" blazer. Then another Oxxford suit jacket (minus the pants).

    I'd hate to know what the other guy was thinking. I'm guessing my facial expression struck a keen resemblance to Rat Fink as I grabbed the suits/jackets and searched for more. Turned the store upside-down. Left a dark tan orphaned suit jacket behind. Grabbed two pairs of Oxxford trousers too. One khaki and one pair of possible orphaned trousers. Green nailhead fabric. Rare Editions. Fairly recent with the larger fabric content/size tag. Maybe I or another TC thrifter will find the jacket.

    Rat Fink, for those who don't know what I'm talking about.

    All in all, a great day.

    - 4 Oxxford suits. Navy pinstripe, Navy chalkstripe , navy tonal stripe and tan w/ blue and yellow checks
    - 1 Oxxford Pure Cashmere blazer
    - 2 Oxxford trousers. One solid light khaki w/ flat front. Other is a possible orphan - green nailhead fabric
    - 2 Smartwool sweaters
    - Allen Edmonds "Mac Neil" in Shell Cordovan. 11 C
    - Nakamichi Sound Space 5 stereo system with manuals, remotes and spare speaker grille covers.
