    Vacca is good stuff. I'm quite sure all their lines are great buys at GW prices.

    This one to BS or eBay as it seems I am close to $1.5 K under this year. Nothing much really. Funeral suit :)

    Well, I can't buy EVERYTHING... I do already have a Pendleton flannel blackwatch plaid SC. That said... measurements would be helpful.

    Grab them. Retail is insane and resale is great. Quality is amazing. They're probably gone, though.

    Went back to the same store to see if any of the AE's were still there, of course they weren't. I pick up these beauty's though. Florsheim Barletta woven cap-toes. Made in Italy. Size 9.5D Available.

    Anyone else get a nice feeling when they stumble across a long forgotten offering from the inimitable J Peterman?

    I picked up a sweet purple and blue striped baby alpaca scarf from J Peterman over the fall. Thing is softer than cashmere.

    quick lunch time pit stop yielded:

    HF for Nordstrom Blazer + Southwick Jacket
    Hugo Boss Galilei Jacket - 44R (Available)

    Yves Saint Laurent Jacket (?) - 44R (Available) Was this a 'should of left on the rack' garment? Never seen a YSL before so I picked it up.

    The 'good' YSL is Rive Gauche and difficult (relative to the amount of non Rive Gauche YSL) to find in a thrift. So unfortunately, it would have probably been better to leave it as other YSL's are much less desirable.
