    Wow, you had a good day, haha. That Barbour is something I would love to see show up in any thrift I hit. Sadly, none to date.

    Sorry man. I really like the fabric on that Pal Zileri. I have a Corneliani with nearly identical fabric. It's possibly my favorite piece i've picked up. I keep trying it on in hopes that it shrank.

    I actually picked up some
    [​IMG]

























    Flat front, split waistband, super recent Zanella Platinums in size 44 last night. From what I remember, the large Zanellas run really small, so they may fit you.



    Yeah, I was pretty excited to find it. It's actually a piece I was considering getting off B&S for myself. It's a bit big for me though =(

    I found another Barbour a few weeks ago, just a shirt so I never posted about it =/



    I cycle through almost 15 stores fairly frequently.



    Dunno man... I keep raising my standards, but then I find better and better stuff. I'm still waiting on my grail worthy shoe and overcoat finds =/




    Possibly. I think there's a hole in one of the sleeves, so I'll have to get you a picture of that.




    Also, I want to apologize to anyone's PMs I haven't responded to yet. I go thrifting to de-stress, but I don't enjoy selling stuff quite as much. I'll get back to you soon.

    thanks :) I do have someone interested in the Zileri already - it's too big for you I assume?

    as to the unicorn: D_I_B_S >.> i'll pm you!

    Is there a picture of YOU wearing that? Those measurements seem more like a US 42 to 44 although I obviously the the 50R tag you posted. A pic of it on you would make it seem more correct to me. I dunno.

    Just wondering because if you ended up not selling it and decided to give it to me, I'd like to be sure that it wasn't too large before accepting it.

    :blush:

    Nothing great today, but a few interesting things. First couple places all I found was a couple shirts for me and a couple nice scarves

    Scarves:

    [​IMG]

    Cashmere from Scotland... Keeping this, maybe for the GF

    [​IMG]
    James Pringle of Inverness, woven in Scotland, Lindsay tartan (available)

    third place... nothing... Fourth place I found this suit. It's a very nice 46R Coppley, with E. Zegna fabric and at least half canvassed. Bit of a mystery...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Gorgeous fabric... charcoal with a blue windowpane

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Caruso? Just a coincidence? It says it was made in Canada.
    Available... Mostly got it because it's well made with gorgeous fabric and I thought someone here would appreciate it, but I'm not sure how much eBay value it has.

    This one is really nice... Also a 46R, but a very recent HSM (available)

    While I was looking for pants to match up with some older HF suits (didn't find them) I came across these... Pal Zileri tropical weight wool pants, 32 waist

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Wish I'd looked a bit closer... got excited about finding them... One spot rewoven, one other snag / tear... Available if someone wants them at cost

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And 3 shirts, available

    [​IMG]
    Hickey Freeman, 16x34, cutaway collar, french cuff

    [​IMG]
    Hickey Freeman, 17.5 x 34, cutaway collar, french cuff

    [​IMG]
    Brooks Brothers, 17.5x34, cutaway contrast collar and french cuffs

    Spoo, I've sent you a PM. I'm out of my league trying to sell this.

    I love that I saw this and immediately knew what it meant before I read what was below it, :lol: (the tilt of that thing's head absolutely slays me)

    On the topic of flat front Zanellas, I have a pair if anyone is interested. Recent, grey nailhead pattern. Waist laid flat: 21, Inseam: 30.5 (+2.5). In good shape.

    Picked up a Gieves and Hawkes (Bespoke?) 40R double breasted fully canvassed plaid suit today with a damaged armpit lining.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I was so excited the "Bespoke" written on the label that I totally missed the UNITE tag [​IMG]. As such, I assume this isn't worth fixing to sell, so If someone wants to take it off my hands for cost + shipping I'd love to get rid of it, running out of room in my closet.

    On a more positive note I picked up these polarized Ralph Lauren (same script writing as Purple Label) made in Italy sunglasses at TJ MAXX for a fraction of retail. A little loud for my tastes but hopefully I can pull them off.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: Any market/interest for vintage MTM Hickey Freeman (circa 1969 specifically)? Saw a nice plaid suit in around a 38/40 today - narrow lapel, flat front - very modern looking.
