    How could I not?

    Besides, Brianpore needs a belt and there just might be enough here to fashion him one.

    Oxxford super 100s gray herringbone "suit". Trousers (flat front) were trashed by the Very Hungry Caterpillar; jacket could easily be worn a a SC. 40R.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Oxxford bespoke trousers. (CLAIMED) Flat front, gray glenplaid. Fully lined to hem, front and back. See other areas that will need addressing. I also found a pair of blue glenplaid flat front trousers that I'm keeping, and are at the tailors, so no pics. Waist: 35 +0 to let Inseam: 30.75 + 1.75
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Royal Tweed ( by Church's) Premium Grade, benchmade in England black wingtips. 8.5D (US or UK??). Uppers in decent shape, only one major scuff but it's neither too deep nor does it interfere with color. Lowers are in good shape with plenty of life left in them, though they may have been resoled. Inners are near pristine.

    ^^^ That's kinda cool.

    I went to one place and came up with a couple of things worth mentioning.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Ridiculous 100% silk repp striped tie with pictures of George Washington wearing purple sunglasses. Made in USA. Not available (maybe available? I have too many ties as is...).

    [​IMG]

    ^ By Robert Graham? What?

    [​IMG]

    ^ Allen Edmonds Bridgeton loafers. 8 1/2 B. Available.

    and a lot of vintage made in USA Brooks Brothers stuff - the good BB stuff.

    Ok, that George Washington tie is pretty cool.

    On another note.......man, this thread has changed. I couldn't imagine a year ago posting that I found a NWT RLPL Cashmere sweater at a goodwill and having no one comment. Maybe pictures are warranted?

    Also, to keep the Robert Graham train rolling......has anyone ever seen this RG shirt label?

    That's the RG Freshly Laundered shirt label, they are slightly less expensive than the full blown super ridiculous mainline shirts, should still be worth some bucks though

    You don't really want that sweater if its a small or medium right? ;)


    Also, PSA:

    Home depot has, among other things, a Werner portable aluminum platform on special for $22 with free in store pick up. If you missed these on black Friday for $19, it's a great deal for something that comes in handy a lot. Like, reaching the top of your thrift pile. :)

    Haha.

    I'm sorry we didn't find much on our trip. I hope all is going well with you!


    Wait.. what..? A duel partner? [​IMG]


    If you really do decide to come, shoot me a PM, and I will take you around!


    I will PM you.



    Nice going! I would be happy with that haul!

    I hit a couple of thrift stores today... One was having a 30% off clothing sale. Didn't score too big, but found a couple of nice shirts, shorts and hats.

    Barba Napoli checks shirt, Ex Officio Travel shirt (lighter blue), REI Sahara shorts (khaki), Zoic Marquis mountain bike shorts, San Jose Sharks cap, Goorin Brothers flatcap.

    Everything is my size except for the Goorin hat: I might give that to my dad... I'm surprised at the luck I've been having with that Goodwill store with the nice shirts. I got the Barba shirt there today: I've gotten a few other crazy expensive dress shirts there recently too. The thrifting sure is good in the rich neighborhood!

    ^^ I'd say a Barba Napoli shirt makes a pretty good day. Still kicking myself for passing up one in my size for $50 (NWT) from a going-out-of-business sale in Vegas a few years ago.
    No worries. We did well for the area that we were in. There's always next time! :D
    Pics are worth a thousand words :teach: :D Beautiful sweater! Nice score! I once found a RG Freshly Laundered shirt. Sold for peanuts. Not sure why as it was pretty cool.

    +1 Barba Napoli shirts are awesome. The one I have is still my best fitting and favorite shirt I own. Definitely great quality shirts.

    Been gone a long while...focused on other things.
    I did find something pretty amazing last week in MN-
    Canali Double Monks-brown, in top shape. Size 10.5 got some woodlore trees in them, some saphir creme and polish and they are essentially new.
    $24.00
    Also found a stash of Sulka ties recently.

    Ok, see yall later.
