    Found this Henry Louis leather case yesterday. I couldn't find too much out about the brand, the piece itself is really nice. Bridle leather, brass hardware, etc. The picture below shows the case after a date with some Lexol cleaner and Lexol conditioner. At 30 bucks, this is probably one of my most expensive thrift store purchases, but I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

    Dude, I don't know WTF is going on lately, but my luck has been amazing! Went back, really not expecting much since I just cleaned up earlier this week and this place isn't incredibly high traffic.

    Found some extremely nice TM Lewin shirts. 2 are from their "Royal" line which appears to have a higher/thicker thredcount and have a nice textured stitch. I see Lewin all the time and almost always pass on them, but these were different...I was immediately struck by how soft they were; they felt like satin. Also FC, immaculate, and exactly my size. I also like the spread collars and Lewin are the only ones I ever find. They yellow is a nice BB All Supima with the GF logo that fits me.

    Ok, nice, good start. Then found this really out there but kind of awesome Ted Baker FC shirt

    [​IMG]

    But then look what was still stuck to them!!

    Look to be m MOP. I meant to mention it to the store people to ask them if they wanted to charge me for them, but forgot when I got to the register. Anyhow, I'm fairly certain that they don't sell cufflinks at this store. I'll mention it next time I'm in, but whatever they want to charge me (if anything), I don't think it will be much.


    Next, an awesome Thomas Pink FC!

    Then my first ever Barba Napoli! Everything about this thing is amazing...it's the first ever darted shirt I've ever seen and it's my size! It fits me like pure sex. I wish every shirt I owned was this

    Next to it I found this Italian made shirt by "Giampaolo - cucita a mano" (handmade/sewn). Definitely from the same guy, definitely high quality and gorgeous, but I don't know much about the maker and it doesn't seem to flip for much. Oh well, it's also my size so if I'll keep it if it doesn't look like it's flippable.

    Next visited jackets and suits. Found this by "Altier Torino" and thought it was quite a gorgeous design. Again, seems decent and local to Italy but doesn't seem too flippable. Also looks like it might be an orphan. Oh well...worst comes to worst it's a decent wear. This guy definitely had an affinity for nice Italian stuff though

    Next in suits, saw this and got excited, but then remembered I'd seen Daniel Cremieux by LP before and temporarily withheld my excitement (not dissing Cremieux, it's just not something amazing I get too excited by):

    Flipped to the other breast...

    !!! Oh hell yes!! His neighbor was equally exciting!!

    Both are very recent, immaculate, and very close to my size. Amazing day for the second time this week - so lucky!!

    Figured I could try out picture posting skills for first post. All from GW, tags dated 12/12 picked up 12/15. Must have just put them out. Ignore the picture dates, battery problem and did not reset. As most newbies, will work on picture skills.

    Also came across a Zegna SC, will post next.

    L to R: Faconnable, Jack Victor, Zegna, Kiton, Hermes

    Here is the Zegna SC. Did not buy, is in excellent condition. Couldn't get the inside pocket tag to photograph. Size was around a 44 (US), I think tag said 56. You can see the blue color better on the tag picture. If anyone is interested, I can do a proxy purchase.

    Don't beat yourself up over the cufflinks, most double cuff shirts from Ted Baker come with the links included

    Here's a shirt I'm currently selling on eBay, complete with Ted cufflinks
