    Really nice haul, especially all in your size! I dig the BB flannel, I've never seen one like that, I assume those are suede/leather elbow patches in the pic, very cool.

    Great score on the navy zegna suit as well- I'm still looking for some good staple suits in navy & gray...those seem like the hardest to find for me in my few months of thrifting.

    Say, does anyone remember who the two or so fellows were who found those Brioni (or similar) capes? My SW&D homie is on the lookout for one; I'd like to see pics as well, just couldn't find them in the search.

    FWIW, I mostly post things I think are neat, regardless of groupthink. (I remember getting slammed one time for posting a cool Brooks Brothers herringbone polo. I didn't post the recent Kiton I found that same day -- first and last time that ever happened -- because it just struck me as any old shirt).

    I dont hear this come up often (if at all), but I found this really cool Dries Van Noten shirt, vintage, appear more green than blue in the picture

    Also found 2 Stephano Ricci ties in excellent conditions, passed on a Bergdorf Goodman Made in England tie and this Brioni tie that was too thin and filmsy for me

    Nothing this morning... might hit a store this afternoon.

    DID finally get photos done to show you guys of the LOUD eye bleach shirts I found a week or two back - sadly, the first upload failed, so all I have left is the Ebay side photo links. Apologies for the resulting quality!

    Etro... OW OW OW, 15.5, collar stays and everything though.

    Right next to it... I thought for sure this was another Etro until I looked at the tag. Ted Baker London, with that little map of the world that I think means the most recent, high quality stuff? I pass on Ted Baker a lot, this is the first one I've ever picked up - MOP buttons, the works. Measures about a 14 - this guy was seriously small, I guess.

    Even I'm NOT asking for measurements on that Ted Baker (and I have a few of their shirts).

    All the time spent reading and learning is starting to pay off. Picked up a pair of Allen Edmonds MacNeil's which looked to be shell cordovan....and yup! just by looking at them I could tell. Black 9177. Confirmed though the https://docs.google.com/Super Shell Spreadsheet

    Also picked up a really really lightly worn pair of Allen Edmonds Holton Loafers Black/Brown that were still in the big "new bin of shoes to be priced" so I got them before they wrote on the soles [​IMG]

    Because I didnt find them, at least not at a thrift. Found them on the B&S forum.... I thought they were going to fit me so paid $$$$ for them, but they are a half to 3/4 size too big [​IMG]

    No worries Brian. If you sell one of those barns, you will have enough to fly to Budapest and get them made bespoke. :D

    Sorry, could not resist.

    That was enough to get me to click on Brian's ebay link!
