    Here's some pictures of a Harris Tweed sport coat I picked up a few weeks ago. I measured everything and tried to take some decent pictures in an attempt to get a grasp on what I could possibly sell it for. I've been buying primarily stuff in my size with the exception of this. It has a pretty neat pattern with a bunch of other color "spots" mixed in...I hope the pictures show it off. It has a single vent. Any ideas on a price? I'm just hoping to get it into the hands of someone who can wear it---it's too big for me.

    Agreed. Can you guys add what you already have? I will start PMing people when I notice something they find or try to sell. Unfortunately ebay sellers not always reliable but there is a lot of expertise in both here and the Trad forum.
    Happy hunting!

    Thrifting on the road today, and found a J Dege & Sons hacking jacket that fits a slightly skinnier me. My first Savile Row piece. Pics later.

    Bought a bunch of uninteresting stuff recently but found a Gloverall for Lands End Duffel coat which fit me perfect tonight so that's a plus

    ^Houndstooth.

    Here's the Dege. It's really quite amazing. My one question is that the button color seem more in keeping with a suit, but I'd be shocked if this were a suit coat. Maybe I'll change them to brown horn.

    Houndstooth with a red overcheck, and slight hints of mayonaise in the top left and bottom right corners :-D.

    This should help for future reference: http://www.alexander-west.com/styleguide/?p=288

    Not a thrift/discount store per se, but I got this suit from my neighbor. Unfortunately, they are not my size!!! [​IMG]

    Canali size 38. Tag says "Frateli Tallia Di Delfino, Woven in Italy"

    Just got back from my daily lunch thrift excursion. Picked up a fairly recent Hickey Freeman Suit in my size and a few pairs of shoes...Vintage Hanover and Bostonian.

    Several ties, most of no great significance except one I picked up out of curiousity. Its one of those pin-up girl tipped ties. It is the doghouse pattern with the golf clubs, beer mugs and playing card pattern. I saw one was mentioned and described on SF back in '07. Very cool, first time I've seen one.

    Here are some crappy iphone pics. It looks black in the photo, but it is actually dark blue.
