    not really a brag or even a large discount but I am stoked about winning this
    measurements are perfect, it is real leather has cool pockets is a super classic bomber style ect. I would have gladly paid more for it although 78 is pretty steep especially considering it is american living (lets not get into the jc penny debate again though)

    Jesus, why do you people hate me?

    I'M WAY TOO COMPETITIVE NOT TO TAKE THIS WITH DEADLY SERIOUSNESS

    Mother farkers.

    I went out today as Beowulf to fulfill the quest set for me by Grendel. I came back with bags of stuff. But before you get excited, I failed. Sort of. Barbera Sartoriale by St. Andrews (I think), but unvented and besom pockets. Sulka, but very old tie and shirt, each of which that have damage. Trafalgar braces x2. Super old, super awesome Brooks Brothers Chesterfield. Some other stuff, but nowhere near the volume of awesome that's been extracted from my home state in recent days. (Plus I cheated; much of my searching was in New York). Passed on a very decent solid gray double breasted, dual vented Aquascutum orphan because I lacked the patience to search for the pants needle in the room-sized haystack of men's trousers. And on one of the nicest, most recent Isaia SCs I've seen recently because they wanted an absurd -- no, I mean like an order of magnitude plus above normal thrift prices -- amount for it.

    Hah ha. Remember that I am in possession of the NWOT Kiton suit circa 2011, discovered by Troika and purchased by Mexicutioner and transferred to me.

    Two modest finds from today, both available

    Hickey Gingham Work Shirt, XXL. For those unfamilar, Hickey was Hickey-Freeman's youth line. Unfortunately it got scrapped. They had a lot of nice stuff.

    I bought a merino wool Theory sweater for $12, this was my 1st time actually buying anything from thrifting. Im kinda even surprised I found it. Also saw some brand new KMW jeans with red/blue selvedge but was definitely not my size (I can get it if anyone wants it). Hopefully I stumble across some more finds

    Muffler. Silk with wool/cashmere/wool and cashmere? backing. 50" x 10". No maker. No content tag. I'm thinking it's from a defunct local men's store, but who really knows.

    Man, I wish I had anything to enter that was worthy of this competition. Closest I've come is probably the Purdey hunting jacket or W&G bush poplin safari jacket, and those are like 1/10th the find the stuff in this competition will be.
