    Great finds! I don't think I've seen Brioni Super 180's, and that Gucci is super recent!

    Aside from my upcoming mega haul confirmation today, I stopped by a thrift store:

    1 x PRL Italy Suit
    1 x PRL Italy Blazer
    1 x Chester Barrie Suit
    1 x Chester Barrie Blazer
    12 x Oxxford Blazers / Suits

    Mostly pretty old, but very cheap, so why not.

    If anyone is interested in pics, I could get this stuff out of my car.

    First and foremost, GIANT shoutout to Chris a.k.a. 330CK for a very generous deal on some Paul Smith Wholecuts. Awesome guy that I will have the pleasure of meeting one day...since he stomps my hometown area. If only I can make the time to get down there.

    Here are some recent finds. I legit have had little time to go out (made one good Saturday run) but my GF (bless her soul) made a couple runs (I think she is starting to enjoy it, AND she has a keen eye). The better of these finds are all her.

    First up, a non clothing related thrift. Roomba 535. I actually already have the same model. Battery was dead at the store. Swapped in my current battery and the thing works perfect. Ordered new battery on eBay, felt a hunch, and reset the roomba. The old battery just needed a quick jolt. Now I guess I will have a spare battery when the eBay one arrives. Thing needs a cleaning, but a nice deal.

    This find is definitely a question mark. Everything looks right, quality feels right, but the logo just looks a tad off to me.

    Old as hell, but still pretty damn cool IMO.
    I figure it is camel hair, but there is no content tag to be found.

    Isn't that a lot of Chinese for something "Made in Turkey"?

    I thought so too. But then I looked at another polo I had from them. I am not POSITIVE this one is real, either, but I am pretty sure. Here is the tag on that one (made in Peru and not Turkey)

    I vote real. I've seen a few of these over in my neck of the woods. The tags look consistent...or consistently fake...[​IMG]
