    +1. I have a thing for Euro wagons. Love em!

    Hit 5 stores today and found........ a whole lot of nothin'. The dry-spell continues. Doh....

    A friend and I decided to hit up Neiman Marcus Last Call though and oogled over a perfect fitting Kiton cashmere sportcoat for about $1500 and a few Isaia sportcoats for $1000. Also saw a killer silk print Stefano Ricci dinner jacket. Wish this stuff would end up in the thrifts. :brick:

    Temporary thread derail. We now return you to the regularly scheduled thrift boasting.

    speaking of which, on youse guyses recommendation, I picked up some very nice Mexico weejuns for the little lady...oxblood color 8N. Too N for her! If anyone needs a little Valentine's Day thrift find in that size...let's swap (will send pix if you need...I did the alcohol prep, Lexol, then Meltonian shine, they are keepers).

    Anyone know of that Italian suit brand, Rossellini? Any reviews? SF seems light on the info, which to me usually says "Low End."

    EDITED: Oh, I see my unintentional double entendre. Ha!

    I write for a living, I guess "paying less close attention to my every word" is my way of kicking back at the end of the day.

    SHOES! If anyone wants to swap the SHOES!

    Not thrifting related, but I almost pulled the trigger on this auction:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/250983410718?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    I'm the one who pushed it to the max bid, so my next one would've won it. I rationalized that I would only want two or three of those and then would have to move the rest. They are all M2 flat fronts and most of them are even the Bullard Field cloth that WGP seems to LOVE. Oh well, I'll keep holding out for M3s.

    A couple of sweet overcoats...

    PRL for Saks black & white herringbone tweed - Sadly it's a 40L, fits everywhere but the length. Mid-shin is just too long.

    Just for grins...
    I only included people with double digits. Lots of folks from 1 post up to 9 posts as well.
    Your post count is BELOW your name.

    Where do YOU stand? :)

    A project for someone with entirely more free time than I would be to calculate out the % of posts to this thread to overall posts. That would be the real indicator of thread loyalty. :nodding:
