    Taking the afternoon off so I stopped on my way home. Found some ties (available):

    Orvis wool, feels and looks like blue / green tweed
    Zegna
    Zegna
    Egyptian themed Brioni

    Found a very good condition staple gray HF Boardroom suit (available)

    But by far the best was this brown POW button down Pendleton shirt with a red overcheck, 100% wool... Feels NWOT and I LOVE the fabric and pattern. Made in Mexico but the quality is there. Unfortunately a size XL instead of a Medium, so available.

    Had a big disappointment today found a Brioni sc (43), but after close inspection at home found a few small holes in the sleeve.

    BB Loro Piani Suit - 41R - The pants were destroyed but figured this might work as a sc.

    I've found some really nice shirts in great patterns this week but none in my size. They all look and feel virtually new. Let me know if anyone wants to buy (or trade if a small/36) or else I'll probably just consign them.

    Canali 40. I'm way too small for their cut.

    Two Zegnas: a Large (with a hidden button down collar) and a 43

    [​IMG] [​IMG] (Is this their current label?)

    Lastly, a John Varvatos XL in a cotton/nylon blend.

    Passed on two more button downs: a brown Corneliani and a green Burberry London from the same donor as the Canali. I couldn't figure out the spoiler for the life of me, so sorry for taking up so much room. Happy thrifting!

    Holes tiny, you could get them reweaved for a low cost. Not a bad score and the green - black houndstooth pattern is a classic sport coat staple. I know a couple of guys here in the 42 - 44 size that may want to punt at it.

    I found a totally authentic 70's vintage Bucherer 21-jewel raised crystal silver base/platinum plated automatic watch for $10 in a thrift store on Ohio Blvd in Pittsburgh, PA. Have I won the entire thread as it pertains to watches?
