    Macy's store brand blue and white striped end on end $4
    Church's Cotswold brown wingtip brogues with shoe trees $7

    Terrific day at the thrifts. It must have been good all over Pittsburgh as I see swb120 had a very nice find as well.^^^

    Below is a shot of today's finds. L to R: An olive/brown wool/mohair Paul Smith London two button suit 42R, a Paul Stuart corduroy two button odd jacket and a cream colored Brooks Brothers 100% silk two button jacket...all near perfect. On top of them are a U.S. made BB OCBD, a Zegna plaid casual shirt and a Viyella red tartan cotton/wool blend, a Reis of New Haven Repp tie and a new tan woven cotton belt.
    Behind it all are a pair of AE Richmonds and a vintage pair of English made all leather golf shoes. The shoes are sitting on top of a Tumi ballistic nylon two suit travel bag in perfectly serviceable condition. The whole lot was under $75.

    For you montgomery county, MD residents, at the Nordstrom Rack in Gaithersburg, there's a EZegna Trofeo sportscoat mistakenly marked down to $250. Great looking coat. 52R.

    Nice haul indeed tony,

    The Tumi is lagniappe!

    It seems that your thrifts are particularly thrifty in Pittsburgh ( Land of the $2.00 Lobbs).

    I don't put in nearly your time or effort, but I just can't imagine new $2.00 Lobbs here or the kind of haul above for $75.

    Well done!

    Bijan tie ( I know,I know but it's going on ebay) $1.64
    TM Lewin tie $1

    There was/is a nicely constructed Paul Stuart jacket near me but it has so much pilling on it that I don't think it is worth it. For $6 USD should I just buy it and try to correct the pilling issue or should I just fuggetaboutit?

    I go to many...and often, but very few of the trips are this productive. You just have to stick with it.

    Had never heard of lagniappe, I had to go look it up. I like the concept. Its days like that one that keep me looking!

    Picked up a Ermenegildo Zegna Taglio Esclusivo DB navy blue suit, working button holes and all , dated 95, it's beautiful but unfortunately a size 54L, too big for me but I got it so I could check it out, so if any members are interested let me know.

    ^Good lord, a 54L? That's absolutely monstrous. You could call Shaq?

    What are the actual measurements, out of curiosity? I mean, if you took any.

    He probably means a 54L European, i.e. 44L American.
