    As others stated, these Brionis are pretty recent. The older ties have the gold chain. Very nice haul!

    Yeah. I agree. I was hoping to get it for less than $80.

    Picked up a few Charles Tyrwhitt shirts knowing they would need "the collar treatment". Do they sell that Oxi-Clean stuff in stores or do I have to stay up late and wait for the infomercial with the dead guy? I've never seen it in stores...but wasn't really looking for it.

    EDIT: also, does someone have the stain removal guide link handy? I need to work on a variety of spots, on a variety of fabrics. Merci.

    Hickey Freeman suits 48 L

    I left these behind, should I pick them up?



    First one:

    Torn at pant pocket, looks like cheap fix

    Second one:

    Has something going on in the taint region, similar to pilling on a sweater?

    I did pick up 2 Hickey suits as well that I'll post up later.

    Don't know if there's a technical term, but I like 'crotch shred.' I wouldn't pick that up / buy it from a flipper, but others may disagree.

    First pair of men's Tod's that I've found. I love suede and they're my size, it's just a shame that I don't really wear black.

    Few more finds. I know Filson stuff doesn't move that well but I've never seen a Filson western shirt and this thing is basically like new. Size L and available.

    Another recent Zegna. 16.5". Not available.

    Don't normally pick up BB stuff but this XL patchwork was NWT and I just think it's dope. Wish it was a small because I'd rock it.
    [​IMG]
    Harvie & Hudson 16.5" available.
    [​IMG]
    Turnbull & Asshole 15.5".
    [​IMG]
    More for the SW&D crowd but a sweet chambray Steven Alan popover. Not available.
    [​IMG]
    One more Burberry tie. Pretty stoked about finding 3 Burberry ties to add to the rotation this weekend. Keeper. :slayer:

    Also have this NWOT Eton formal shirt that's available. 15 x 32 slim fit. Doesn't have buttons because it's made for those things that you use for formal wear. Someone remind me what those are called.

    I agree. If I see that, back on the rack it goes.

    I never quite understood the gut-felt aversion to thrifting some people feel. However too many pictures of crotch pheasants like these could help me get there eventually. [​IMG]
