Finally an analogy this bourbon drinker can totally relate with.
+1 seems like its a daily haul. Now just waiting for my size to pop up.
I think the title should really read "The Official Thrift/Discount Store Bragging Thread not including YSL/Dior"
I found this Brooks Brothers custom made suit a couple of weeks ago. It has now been adjusted to fit me as closely as possible.
$15 for the suit and $40 in tailoring. It should have been closer to $100 but she looks out for me. I highly recommend tipping and gifts to form a relationship with the person you go to to have your clothing altered. Also, send family members for fittings as well.

Couple of cool finds pictured.
Sweaters are XL.
Barbour is heavy knit wool, made in Scotland. Calling JKidd.
Ralph Lauren Purple Label is 57% Cashmere and 43% Alpaca
I think what people are complaining about is that every bar in town is serving 10 cent shots of Wild Turkey, but folks are bragging anyway. Great buy, yes. Flippable, probably so. Brag-worthy? Not when it's that common. (By the way, the bourbon analogy didn't quite make it all the way through. I'm sure if I'd had more bourbon it would have been more artfully constructed.)
Today's 10 Cent Wild Turkey Haul
BB Saxxony Cable Knit Sweater
BB Purple Label Button Up Cotton/Cashmere
BB 1818 Red Crew Sweater
RL Assorted Button Up Shirts
Ties...2 BB and 2 Talbott BOC
Baldessarini Hugo Boss Super 120s 3 Button Suit 42L
If you're looking for Southwick, I literally saw 9 jackets, some paired up with pants, at the Goodwill by me. The pants shouldn't be too hard to find, right?
Wow! That fit looks really good. Is that one of the online tailored or MTM?
I found a pair of velour Brioni pants the other day. They feel like a combination of baby ass and cumulus cloud.
I came across these at the Goodwill on Beverly, just east of Fairfax if anyone in Los Angeles is interested in grabbing them:
Vintage (?) Abercrombie & Fitch official Navy Overcoat. $40. The A&F tag looks 80s? Sorry, didn't see a size, but it may as well have been new. I left it on the suit rack, up against the wall, next to the changing room. See last photo.

Brooks Bros wool herringbone overcoat. $10. probably a 36 as it fit me great. Nothing I'd wear though, so...Really good condition. No holes.

Brianpore and guys who need smaller shirts. The Nutter is a 38/15. French Blue with french cuffs. Spread collar. Only issue I can see, is the forint edge f the collar upon looking at it looks like it's worn down. However when you look at it closely there is no wear on the material. If there is any interest shoot me a PM.
I also have a pair of 34 Waist Filson Flat Front khakis and a pair of Bills M1 36 waist.
Found a bunch of NWT Zanella flat fronts today in size 32 and 34. All going to be available at B&S prices
Same cut as this:
Warning that Paraboots sizes are UK not US. Bought a 7 tan Avignon from GW auction for my dad for 66 bucks, too big.
$66 is a great deal for those shoes. If someone wears that size, they should grab those!
If you still want that Dunhill jacket done deal. I have a couple other shirts that may interest you as well.
I also tried on the Made in England RLPL Jacket WGP has set aside for you. I think it would fit me much better Sadly he kept it with him, but I got dibs if you pass.
On a brighter note, I found a Navy BB Camel Hair jacket a couple weeks ago. I picked it up because it was in good shape, and it seems you can always find a home for a nice BB sport coat. I tried it on earlier and it fit me much better than I thought/remembered. This may well stay in my closet.
