    Okay. Just got done with "thrift Milwaukee". 11 stores, one day. In a city I'd never driven in before. LOL thank god for easy to navigate streets.

    Finds:

    1966 James S. Lee 3 button, patch pocket sportcoat. Black mohair (super pimp), amazing condition.
    Oxxford pure alpaca sportcoat
    Brooks Brothers boys loro piana wool blazer
    Harris tweed vintage british made sportcoat
    Custom peak lapel side vent brown suit (tom ford style)
    Custom peak label side vent suit (scabal 120's)
    recent Versace Classic sportcoat
    Bills plaid pattern khakis
    Bills flat front light blue khakis
    Martin Greenfield houndstooth sportcoat
    Willis & Geiger leather vest
    Robert Graham shirt
    Hugo Boss shirt (really recent and practically brand new, don't normally bother with Boss)
    Ermenegildo Zegna dress shirt
    Brooks Brothers linen / cotton shirt
    Vintage Saks 5th Avenue cashmere/mohair cardigan
    Vintage cotton striped cardigan
    Canali Milano silk double breasted notch label suit (super miami vice)
    Brooks Brothers Loro Piana fabric houndstooth sportcoat, sidevented and recent
    Total spent: $87.76
