    Well I just spent too long looking for the OB's pants. Questioning whether I should hit up the other local GW's.

    Found a mint condition, fully canvassed midnight blue tux made by Lloyd Bros. in Toronto, unfortunately too big for me (at least a 44 or 46), up for grabs.

    Long day today. One of my kids had some minor surgery. My bit of learned wisdom from the experience: you know everything went well when 20 minutes after leaving your kid in the OR you see the surgeon behind you in the cafeteria line-up and he gives you a thumbs-up.

    Anyway, picked this up last night. It's in great shape, and XL with p2p about 25".

    I've generally restrained myself from picking up trench coats, the weight of them always seems a bit much for shipping, but I figure I can't wrong on ebay with a Burberry. I see a fair number of Aquascutum. Does anyone else have luck with these? They seem to be plentiful on ebay.

    And a long-ago thrift update. This summer I picked up a 1920s, art deco chiffonier. I finally did a bit of (minor) reconditioning of it and we got it into another daughter's room this weekend. We could have had a complete set but a crew of 6 guys walked off (a la Ocean's 11) with 2 matching dressers from the SA that was selling it.

    I finally had a day with enough brag-worthy finds to motivate me to post:

    Alden shell for BB. Re-soled, but uppers are nice and fit me well:

    And for my wife. Any tips on authenticating? Thanks

    Also, if you PM I will not be able to respond until Saturday afternoon.

    Cheers,

    Not sure what the technical name for this jacket is...any help would be great. No zipper only buttons. Button rain coat? No other tags to be found.

    It's only quantum mechanics, Brian, or is it quantum physics...

    Time to change things up a bit. I think it's alright to post this here - it was bought in pieces off of eBay and paid for with thrift funds, so I think that fits in with the theme of the thread. Plus it seems like there are enough bike enthusiasts here that won't mind. My (finally completed) new (to me) ride:

    Right now I have it set up as a FSSS (full-suspension single-speed). Will possibly make it geared in the future, but so far I'm diggin' this.

    Parts list for those that are interested:

    Chris King ISO/Stans Crest/DT Swiss spokes wheels
    Fox F29 120mm Fork
    Chris King bottom bracket
    Chris King headset
    XTR M970 crankset
    Maxxis Ignitor tires
    Thomson seatpost and stem
    Race Face Atlas carbon handlebar
    Formula R1 brakes and rotors
    Selle Italia Carbonio SLR saddle
    Retail Value: ~$7000
    Total investment: ~2500

    Not positive, but I think the hidden placket makes it a "Mac."

    As an ex-bike racer, possibly future born again bike racer, I gotta say that thing is real legit. My favorite part is the American Classic skewers. Halfway thrift related, I used to get American Classic wheels on a team deal (the hubs were orig. built up with Velocity rims, the shallow ones), train or race on them for a month or two and sell them on eBay for near my cost.
