    Arghhh moment today: I think about a week ago I posted about a NWT grey pin striped H. Freeman & Sons orphan pants that were my waist, pleated, unfinished/unhemmed that I left behind. Well, today I found the NWT coat at another GW a scant 3 miles away :) . I didn't buy the coat, but I went back to the GW where the pants were and, of course, they were gone :brick: . Oh, well.

    I didn't plan to thrift today but this GW was on my route to the Home Depot where I was gonna buy some lawn stuff.

    Those are my grail shoes, Lobb Chapels. Amazing. If they were a 9.5, I would have been after you relentlessly. Congrats.

    Someone was mentioning CT a few pages back so I went for it. Slim fit, decent condition in a basic white, I figured why not. There were one or two others I left behind

    I like 'em and wear 'em, but you can buy them new for $39.50 shipped so it's hard to get more than $15-20 for them

    Last couple day's haul. I swear, since they put away the jackets and sweaters, I've been finding only odd and ends. Oh well,

    I guess lightning does strike twice. Mint copy of an album featuring Charlie Parker, Stan Getz & Dexter Gordon, also Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66, Equinox
    [​IMG]
    Vintage Broadstreet, my size. I wore these all day yesterday, definitely my new favorites. Check out the stitching on the cap!
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Fucking tassel shoelaces? Who would fucking do that. Stetson shortwings. Size 9.5 C, up for trades.
    [​IMG]
    Couple hand-rolled silk scarfs.
    [​IMG]
    Cool embroidered trout surcingle belt. Made in the U.S.A, I can' t make out the brand though. Marked a size 40, I usually wear 32,but this only needs one more hole punched into it and it will fit!
    [​IMG]
    Grey Coach harness leather belt, size 36 but works.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Now, I have a number of vests, but not one with lapels that also features a beautiful pinstriped tweed herringbone pattern. I had to grab.

    Plaid Zegna button up size XL, up for trade.
    [​IMG]
    Cool linen bow-tie, I rarely ever find these.
    [​IMG]
    Probably the coolest tie I've ever thrifted:
    [​IMG]
    At first i thought this might also be linen but upon further inspection,
    [​IMG]
    Horizontal stripes, check, awesome color combination, check, hand made and silk too boot?, check.
    Some sartorial inspiration,

    Very funny, smart guy. If there's one thing I hate more than typing on a poorly designed device, its typing on the SCREEN of a device that definitely thinks (perhaps rightly so, but still) that its cooler than me.
