    As promised, not thrifted by me, but by a legendary consignor who wishes to remain anonymous. Sent to me to sell, but left the thrift tags on as proof of "the score" and with his permission, I post some of them below....

    Sit. Down.

    NWOB John Lobb driving shoes. Awesome score, right? Well...

    No offense, please, but it gives some of us, at least me, hope to see a master attempting to span a bridge too far. Pics of my recent vintage outdoor stuff soon, God and time willing...

    Yeah, but the vicuna jacket is from 1999. Harrumph. Let me try that again: Harrumph. Excuse me, there appears to be something in my throat that is provoking tears...

    Don't intend to hate and I haven't checked it out yet, but if that's true, that's a little silly. Don't get me wrong, Spoo has great stuff, but why not just put a link to his store if they're going to do that?

    Just for a laugh, care to tell me how many PMs you got?

    On a side note, I really hope 70% of this thread just didn't know about Raf Simons and has been avoiding it until now, and that huge loads of Raf stuff will start to appear here now that the dam's burst open.

    So, I was texting back and forth with another forum member today, each of us at different shops and he said he found a nice topcoat, to which I responded by complaining that a decent topcoat was the only article of clothing I had yet to find. Literally, right after texting him, I stumble upon this....

    Awesome looking, great shape, certainly. But then I open up the pocket to see this...

    Aside from a slight amount of discoloring near the neckline (which I think my amazing new dry cleaner will be able to get out anyway), it's pristine. Lining is great, outside is great. Amazing. It fits me perfectly in the chest, though the sleeves are definitely too short, but I'm going to beg/plead/bribe my tailor to get it to work. N/A.

    Ok, so I'm not 100% perfectly tailored (usually in the trouser inseam dept) but I don't even get an honorable mention?
    Srsly, tho. Dig started the thrift fit trend, and I think most of us have not intended it be an opportunity for critique, like waywrn. I kind of like the liberation that brings; this thread is much less uptight (read: bitchy) than others. I like that. There are many reasons I post far more often here than on waywrn, and my absolute lack of sartoriality is just one of them. To be sure, many sins are committed here. But my view is: I'd they're not of a mind to be seeking input and correction, then I'm not of a mind to provide it. I'd just as soon maintain the mutual support and healthy (well, relatively speaking) discourse here.
    Folks want to learn to dress better (and/or in a mood outright abuse), they can go to waywrn.
    Just my .02

    Balls!

    Some stuff today. No deets until I decide what to send to my secret santa.

    NICE! Those are great, classic colors/patterns. Enjoy - they look mint. That last jacket you posted is mind-blowing.


    Lots of stuff today including Willis & Geiger bush poplin cargo pants, NWOT Filson 702 weekender sweater (XXL) and an Oxxford medium gray pinstripe suit (43 T, flat front pants, 2 btn jacket), etc.

    My favorite find of the day was this vintage down insulated wool rancher coat by Eddie Bauer. Size L (it is available and fits a little on the larger side). Made in the USA. Approx. dates to the mid 80's. Has a label I've never seen before. Coat as left in a friend's car, but I'll get better pics when I retrieve it.

    [​IMG]

    Also got a stack of old Whole Earth catalogs, Woodstock Craftsman's Manuals 1 & 2 and an early 70's softcover book called Living on the Earth which fits the theme of the other books and goes into detail on basics to living off the land. Part of the big "back to mother earth/commune" craze of the early-mid 70's. Cool stuff.
