Went to my first estate sale last night. Only picked up one hideous zegna tie and left a Harris tweed. It was fun though and will probably search for more.
These two shirts are from today: The purple label is missing a couple of buttons, which I'm going to replace:
HF Suit with flat front, no cuff trousers, 3-roll-2, Wool: 21.75" pit to pit, 18.5" shoulders, 24.5 sleeve, 30.5 length, 18.5" across waist, 29.5" inseam.

Few weeks ago:
Damn bro that was fast. Took a couple weeks off and just caught up on 1000 + posts.
I'm afraid my itch would be scratched with the likes of croft and barrow, lands end and nautica...
Good day all. Great finds recently.
Ethan !!! Sick personal shoe haul.
Thanks man, I'm cleaning out my shoe closet as we speak to make room for the new arrivals. I'll post them here before I take them to the bay in case anybody want's them.
Best day I've had in a while. Everything potentially available.

2x RLPL T-shirts L
Recent Black h'bone Theory sportcoat (epaulets, belt back, this thing is sick), 40R

*Brioni tie has a stain, but it was cheap and I thought I'd take a chance on it. I think Mainy or someone recently posted their tie-stain-removal method here, can someone repost it?
Oh my goodness, oh my daym!
Oh trust me - if anything there had fit me, I wouldn't have the funds left over that I do. I was hoping to spend a bit more on clothing for this trip, but sadly the only thing I found in my size (36 waist) were the Sugar Cane jeans. I'm content with my puchases, though.
That's insane! Wow!
Nothing but heartache today. Too expensive:
Ledbury button down
Sid Mashburn button down
Paul & Shark ties
Too far gone:
PRL blackwatch cashmere tie
Ok I'm going to one shop today and that's it. I really need to stop buying and start selling. Must keep repeating this to myself.
You and me both. GW2 isn't helping.
Ran into a treasure trove of tweed today. Most of it Harris, including two three piece suits and a couple of overcoats. Both of the 3 piece suits are actually 4 piece, as they come with two pair of pants. There are also two identical pair of Harris Tweed trousers that probably had a matching coat and and vest, but they were not to be found. I haven't measured them up yet, but they don't fit me so they'll be available soon.
3 piece herringbone
3 piece blue/grey
SC that also has a matching overcoat
Probably orphaned trousers
