    I found and passed on what I'm guessing was an incredibly old Brioni orphan jacket today. It had a label I'd never personally seen, it had Brioni written in some Old English/Blackletter font with Roma underneath it instead of the usual script lettering. I would've picked it up but it was light grayish beige with a yellow pinstripe and I doubt it would've done much on here or eBay to be worth the hassle.

    Also passed on a suit made by Perry Ellis for Saks, which surprised me since I guess once upon a time Perry Ellis was a highish end brand? Maybe?

    Agreed, I think we should work on a more inclusive one here, starting with what they have. I keep this one on an excel sheet on my iPhone so I can reference it quickly at the thrift, but there are still many missing I'm sure.

    Considering how well the ebay black list worked with a google spreadsheet, I tossed this together quickly. Open to anything with the link so anyone can add info. If this works, maybe someone to get this put in an area where people will be able to see it or stickied.

    My day wasn't nearly as eventful as some of yours, but I did get a few things.

    This fall and winter has been bust central for me, but I've found some pretty rad stuff the past couple days. Vintage, Sanforized denim jacket by Lee (probably early 60s or so), with the heavy quilted wool lining (bulletproof!), a bunch of cool ties, a beautiful vintage wool overcoat, and these...

    6.5 sizes too small for me, but I had to buy them, as I've never seen C&J in the wild before (and these have their original, super-heavy trees complete with brass pulls) and I'm hoping they'll bring enough to fund a pair of shoes for myself.
