You wait an hour for one and then three come along at once.
Ahh. Yep that is definitely the way it works isn't it.
Couple of recent finds:
RLPL French Cuff
Dolce and Gabbana - I've never even seen this brand in a store and I find in at a Goodwill, that's why I love doing this! Does this look real?
Hey guys, do any of you know of a decent tailor in the Washington DC/ Northern Va area? I thrifted a few things that I need simple alterations done, sleeve shortned/waist surpression those sort of things. If I'm posting in the wrong section please let me know.

If it's major work, go to Field's. If it's minor work, I've used the Montgomery Custom Tailor in Montgomery Mall and been very satisfied with the work they do.
Real...old? Worth anything?

First one too. Some nice finds there.
Just kidding. You might do well in the Ann Arbor area, but the local look is decidedly more boho than tailored. There is this place in Ann Arbor that I keep meaning to visit one of these Saturdays.
