    I want to give a big shout-out to Patrologia - just got some great Florsheim shell gunboats in the mail. Fast shipping and I can't wait to wear them!

    It's been a while since I've had what I can confidently call a haul. Which is why tonight was so awesome. What's more, almost all of this came from one place, about 20 minutes before the store closed for the night. I saw a pretty well dressed guy flipping through the suits with a few already in his hands, so I hopped to it. Here's what I came up with...

    Perfect for fall Samuelsohn wool/cashmere sport coat. N/A
    [​IMG]

    What's that, you say? You like the checks, but you're a 36R? Here's a Nervesa tweed-y sport coat, AVAILABLE.
    [​IMG]
    P2P - 19.75
    Shoulder - 18
    Sleeve - 23.5
    Length - 29.5
    Don't know much about Nervesa, other than that it's fully canvassed, made in Italy and included in PTO's thrifting brands guide.

    Now then...
    [​IMG]
    (That's a burned retina, and I submit it should be a Grendel signal)

    I remember Grendel saying something about wanting a fall checked sport coat. Maybe this one will work?

    Rinaldo Raspini made by Corneliani, fully canvassed, 54R, AVAILABLE.
    [​IMG]
    P2P - 23
    Sleeve - 25
    Shoulder - 20
    Length - 31.5

    What's this? Super soft? Made for a man much more *ahem* full-figured than I? Must be an Oxxford MTM, approximately 44-46R, AVAILALBE.
    [​IMG]
    p2p 24.5
    waist 23
    shoulder 20
    sleeve 24
    length 31
    Wait a minute. Oxxford?! In Canada?

    [​IMG]


    Now back to the show. Baldessarini charcoal Super 150s suit. N/A pending a verdict from my tailor
    [​IMG]

    It's raining Baldessarini here. This one is about a 40R. Probably going to the 'bay, unless someone here has a 40-42L suit of similar quality they want to trade.
    [​IMG]

    Both of these are post-Hugo Boss (there was one other with 'Hugo Boss' on the label... it was marked up to $100, go figure). The tag is an older Caruso one, right? Or something else?
    [​IMG]

    And lastly, not thrifted, but eBayed for well below average eBay cost, a Comme Des Garcons SHIRT with a zipper front. Love it. N/A

    [​IMG]


    Oh, and that other well-dressed guy? Didn't see any suits with him when he was at the cash... but I did find three Zara suits left on the changeroom rack, all marked up to $70. Had to restrain myself from saying to him, "Good pass."

    I see this and I think "oh, gee, only Kiton sportcoats instead of full cashmere suits and Hermes overcoats?" :slayer: :lol:

    No, no, you have that all wrong. It was a warning not to post lest your haul be totally overlooked :teach:

    BIG shout outs to troika for hooking me up with a sick wit-it Brioni SC and a Bur shirt! Sorry, no pics. Too lazy...He's a super nice guy. If you get the chance to hang out with him, do it for your own good!

    Interesting a days. Picked up a Brioni SC with MOP and working cuffs but unvented! [​IMG] Sorry, no pics. Too lazy...

    Ran into 3 Henry Poole uhhhh, over coats? NOPE! They were size at least 60!!! 2 orphans plus 1 tux. All 3 got all the bells and whistles. The birdseye orphan was only $6. Tux was $45. The blue orphan was $45. It was also a 1/2 off day. Decided to pass...This was the 3rd time I've ran into stuff from the Rows.

    I was very disappointed...That is until I peaked into the breast pocket and found this!
    [​IMG]
    I was happy again! Also, I left with this.

    Shout outs to JP for convincing me going back to pick up another SC that was tailored from the Row.
    Hogg Sons & J B Johnstone with Rop-a-dope shoulders, working cuffs, and it's my size but needs some tailoring.

    Today and Monday:

    Three pairs of pants, from left to right; Zanella (double-pleated, size 34), Zegna (size 34), Brooks Brothers NWT (size 32)
    [​IMG]

    The BB pants are what I'm most excited about this week, because they're NWT but the tags look like they're from the 80s or so.

    Labels for the other pants:

    Ties: Paul Smith, BB, BB (BB are again NWT, but factory store tags)

    When someone says that they had a mediocre day and got a brand new Kiton Suit in the process, its pretty much saying I run this sh*t.
