    Saw a perfect condition Loro Piana storm system for Nordstrom coat at Last Chance for 50 bucks today, but it was a 42L in black- they had the exact Jacket at the Rack for 199. I needed brown and am not a long by any stretch.

    Also, for you Phoenix people, where are all the AEs at Last Chance? I have got a bunch of nice shoes there in the past and on this holiday got nothing. Heck, last time I got a pair of Ferragamos.

    Picked up a vintage Coach (Made in Italy) lawyers case.
    It is in minty condition with a nice patina. Leather is very thick and supple.
    Now I know where the reputation came from, they did, at one time make good shit.[​IMG]

    I've noticed that as well. I've picked up almost all my AE's there before, but there's been nothing the last couple of stops. I did get a pair of dirty bucks by Duck Head last month, but that's the best I've found. I'm not sure what's going on.

    Is a lawyer's case unstructured? That's one of my dream items to find at a thrift shop.

    Congrats! [​IMG]

    That suit is wonderful!

    Picked up a nice hand made burnt orange paisley tie myself today from a tie maker on Regent Street, £2.99.

    Ohhh and Ahhhh....
    Today found a bunch of recent Oxxford Trousers. Only one pair fit, along with a pair of Belvest trousers.
    The Belvest were a funky kind of royal blue.
    The oxxfords are the most luscious fine nailhead flannel....$9.00

    Yep, it only has the dowel that goes across the top with two brass connections that the handle connects to, and the strap connects to. Its sweet.

    Nice! Are any a 34-36 waist that you'd like to trade? [​IMG]

    Found two Lorenzini shirts, a J. Crew shirt from their "antique shirtings" collection, a NWT Thomas Pink tie and a Baekgaard messenger bag (up for trade) at the Goodwill today.

    I picked up what I'm pretty sure is a fake Hermes tie. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this tie is nothing like the other (real) Hermes I have. Either way, for $1 I figured it'd be useful to show here. What do you guys think? ***Note that the price is sewn into one of the tags.

    Its either fake or very old... does it seem vintage

    ^^ I was actually debating on holding onto it (it's quite different), but I may trade it for something nice? Carry on in the trading thread....
