    I had my eye on a nice tan, wool Cricketeer for your beach wedding. Lapels the size of elephant ears. 36S. Built like a tank. Priced too high at $3.99.

    :lol:

    Found this old thing laying around in the womens section

    2 pairs BB pants, Wool, black, brown. They're pleated, I don't typically like pleats but I think I can make these work.

    Found this laying in the women section, had a few what seemed to be ink marks on the back shoulders. They came out after a simple wash though.

    Some good finds today at lunch, a couple Andro's size...

    a 42L relatively recent HF Collection suit, nice charcoal gray with subtle pinstripe
    a pair of AE Park Avenues, black size 12D... in bad need of a shine but overall very good condition
    A size small HF casual shirt with a cool POW overcheck pattern
    A NIB pair of Rochester Shoetree shoe trees, size medium

    Oh, and a Topsy Turvy to try out on my porch [​IMG]

    I've thrifted a bit when in Omaha and always fund nice stuff, a bunch of Brioni shirts, T&A ties, RLPL shirts etc. Its makes sense, there's a lot of money in that town.

    I think you'll find loads of Stafford stuff wherever you go, people just tend to only post when they find exceptional stuff.

    Haha, sorry? Don't know much about hats because they look odd on me except for driving caps.

    BTW you started me on a shell cordovan addiction. As of this weekend I'm up to 3 pairs and only want more...

    Try not to quote spam, especially with the link. Makes it much harder for the mods to delete it.

    On a better note, Anyone know a fella who wears 52L ? I picked up a nice BB Silver Label Camelhair SC - Beige w/ Pink Windowpane today. Thought it might work for the engineer here at work, but it was a bit too large in the chest.

    Thrifted a Land Rover today :D...well not exactly thrifted, and not below market value, but I bought it anyways. Also have confirmation that the DMV is, in fact, the epitome of bureaucratic failure.

    More recent finds:

    JM Weston shoe trees - about a US 8

    38L Harris Tweed Trad Blazer
