Hope all you brohams had a good holiday season.

I've got a number of things in search of new home. PM me with any interest/offers. I can assure you that the pricing on everything will be, uh, quite competitive.

First up is a mint condition, glenplaid Southwick for Patrick James suit. Marked 41R but fits smaller (more like a 38 or so). Mint condition. Marked a 41R, measurements are:

P2P: 20.5
S2S: 18
BOC: 30.5
Waist: 15 (split waistband with significant room to let out)
Inseam: 30, with 1 inch cuff, 1 additional inch to let out
Other deets: Single vent, double pleated, mint condition.



Second, mint condition/mint color Charles Tyrwhitt button down. French cuffs. Marked 16/34 (41/86)

Third, a very nice Harris Tweed jacket, made by Lands End. In very good overall condition. Look at the jacket's coloring. Measurements are:

P2P: 22.25
S2S: 20
BOC: 31

Florsheim Imperial plain toe bluchers. Shell. Size 12A, but fit a bit wider - maybe a B or slim C (I'm a 10.5 D/E and my fit fits into the shoes pretty comfortably).



Allen Edmonds, Chester model. Size 7.5E. Recently recrafted, in good overall shape.



Allen Edmonds, Berwick model. Size 10.5B. In near mint condition.

DB Blazer by Arnys.
Who knows how it made it all the way to LA.
Plus a solid navy tie by Gianni Campagna.
I saw on putthison.com that it's not your size... What size is it, and are you selling it?

Greg, what Marshalls were you hitting? The ones in Roswell (near my job) are terrible.

We are probably talking about the same ones then. I tried the newish one on Holcomb Bridge in the Target shopping center and in Sandy Springs on Roswell Road. Polo was the best label I found. I am also going to check out the North Point and Dunwoody stores next weekend, so if I come across anything I will let you know unless you already tried them in which case let me know.

Very respectable find. Those pants are super short, crazy short in fact. What a pity, but perhaps you could increase your possible revenue by removing the cuffs to get an extra 1.5 inches and perhaps there is an inch or two hem there that can be let out.

Whomever owned this suit, I struggle to understand his body. Super short legs but arms on the long side of regular. Very curious.

It's a good thing pants are very short for me. Otherwise I would be seriously tempted. Flannel will show if you open up the cuffs.

Interesting question for my fellow thrifters:
If a law were passed declaring that ALL donated clothing had to be stamped with a 'This item was donated' mark inside the garment, would you still thrift?
The question assumes you cannot wash away or otherwise remove the mark.

Yes, in fact I usually brag about my finds with my friends. But, even for those who don't share, who is going to know except you and your dry cleaner?

Stopped at just one store today, needless to say, I am happy:

First Isaia piece. My camera added a bit more blue than it actually has. It's more of a navy, I would say. The Goodwill employees were removing all of the pink tags from the racks and had not gotten to the suits yet. I couldn't find the pants despite doing the standard teardown including dressing rooms and throw back racks. Oh well, it's possible to use as a standalone rather than strictly an orphan, right? How is this pattern described? Also, how do you date most factory tags? What panel tells you the date of manufacture?

54R (42?)
Double Vented
20" shoulder
22" p2p
25" arm length from seam to cuff
33" overall length from bottom of collar to bottom hem










Nice EZ shirt, though I wonder about it since the others I own are Made in Italy, while this is Made in Spain.

17/35



A Paul Smith Belt 32", too small for my waist. Very little use.



And some other belts from previous visits. Top to bottom: Pringle of Scotland, Coach, Allen Edmonds. All 36" and possibly worn only a few times.





As always, all are up for trade or sale.

Nice score! If Achilles passes, I'll bite. If I nix the cuffs on the trousers, I can rock it.

That could very well be a sportcoat. The tag would date it between 2002-ish and 2006.

Nice! That's a pretty recent piece. Pretty sure is it a sc, but double check. At the very bottom of the fabric content/size tag on the left size it will say either Jacket (or Giacca) or Suit. Only has this on recent models. Makes it really easy to decide whether to turn the store upside-down for the trousers or not. If it is a sportcoat and is mint, you could likely get $60-$80. Looks like the second to the most recent label design, probably 3-4 years old. Sportcoats (unless cashmere or something crazy) don't fetch crazy numbers, but $60-$80 is still respectable.
