    I did a tally, there are 70 stores on my normal routes.
    I hit 7 of them 3 times a week
    25 of them I hit 1 timer per week every week.
    It usually takes me 2 to 3 weeks to hit the rest depending on time.

    So to answer your question with 46 stops, I hit 32 different stores per week at a minimum. On the good weeks I probably hit close to 50.

    This does not include the constant travelling we do to visit familly about 3 hours away, which involves about 12 more stores.

    Thrift fit today. Chilly; below 60 this morning. Almost entirely thrifted.

Crew Retail Shirt: Borrelli, thrifted by me Tie: Italian woven wool, maker unknown (see detail shot -- anyone know this mark? If not, can someone shoot me a PM with the link to the label thread?) Thrifted by me Square: Italian silk, maker unknown, thrifted by me Trou: recent Zegna su misura, thrifted by me Shoes: AE Brewster in whiskey, thrifted by me [​IMG][​IMG] (Sorry about the waistcoat lapel here.

    That's amazing. I don't think I've even hit 25 different thrift stores in my life.

    You can wear all that below 60?? I couldn't wear all of that below 20. I'm too hot blooded.

    However, I am digging the entire thing.

    A lot going on, but I like it. I think the waistcoat is short for you though, either that or you need higher rise trousers.
