    Nah, they're kinda boring new. Much better after some wear and reconditioning. Love mine.

    Haven't posted here in a while, been thrifting a little bit less, but mostly b/c I've just been really busy, work and personal wise.
    Been keeping up with the thread for the most part, tons of great finds and insane hauls, as usual.

    Here are a few highlights from the few weeks or so, have a few others I'll probably post later on as well.

    I sent him a message and he seems polite and responds quickly (~5 minutes). So, it might be a gamble but it could definitely pay off. He told me the shoulders measure at 18.5" and I specified seam to seam, but I guess you'll see!

    Yeah, 18.5" shoulder to shoulder is perfect for me. Either way $30 shipped for a Corneliani made SC is excellent.

    That Hudson was pretty nice. My wife and I used to go to Gallery 63 pretty often before they started the TV show. Now it is crowded with people driving the prices up. We furnished a couple rooms that way though. We furnished a couple rooms and picked up some nice art and rugs there though.

    I probably have 30 - 40 Harris Tweed jackets in the basement waiting for the fall but this was my first hat.. Is there a name for this type of hat?
