    Very nice piece! :slayer: Only one item from a quick stop tonight. A soft sided travel / luggage bag by Lark. I wasn't familiar with the name but the quality was very good. Came complete with lock and key. too. There seem to be a few on ebay so I took a chance. Plus, the price was right. [​IMG]

    I found a really interesting Oxxford sport coat-- it is 100% cashmere, fully lined, bessom pockets and has no vent. It is about a size ~44. I haven't seen any other Oxxford sport coats like this.

    Here are some mildly interesting ties. They seem to be pretty old. The knit tie is 100% silk, but it has no other markings. The green tie is from Sak's Fifth Avenue University Shop-- the small tag says that it was homespun in Vermont.

    Org, I've seen some pre-purple label, Ralph Lauren stuff, that does indeed have a purple label like yours and was made in China. I vote real.

    Really? I've seen Propasta jackets 1/2 canvassed vs. their mainline being fully canvassed.
    Welcome to the thread, man! The BBGF looks to be an orphan. Those Burberrys' are not too great but if they fit, awesome. That Proposta is really awesome! I really dig the patch pockets! Good pick up for me!!! [​IMG]

    Don't worry, man. Stick around and you'll be hauling ass like some of the big boys.

    [​IMG]Unfortunately, I think you are right. I probably spent 30 minutes looking for the damn matching pants but to no avail.

    Hmm, it could very well differ between the earlier stuff and older stuff, but my Propasta tux is fully canvased and just as nice as the mainline suit I just picked up.

    I pretty much stick to Goodwill for shirts, sportcoats, ties, shoes and suits although those hideous 4 button sportcoats from 2 years ago abound now. I recently scored 2 beautiful Dunhill custom silk ties for $1.99 each

    Did you pick up the mainline suit from a thrift or from a sale? Got pics? I would like to see it if you don't mind.

    I forgot my near miss from this morning...

    I spotted a beautiful unicorn print tie in a case at a thrift shop. I google searched and found the same tie (Hermes) had just sold for $110 on Ebay. Their price? $20. Damn thing had a 5 inch stain covering the whole thing. I offered to pay $2. They refused... Damn thing was unwearable, but oh so cool. I'd take a chance for a couple of bucks that the stain might come out, but not $20!
