    Haha, I suppose so! Any other opinions? Or is there anything I can do to treat the Orvis?

    Wow, those Drakes ties. [​IMG]

    Spoo, I figure the vest is warm and is a decent down product, but it's ugly. I would suggest going after black or brown North Face vests if you want a modern one that you will probably find thrifting. Otherwise, I really like vintage ones as they come in muted earth tones. Look for brands like Gerry, Feathered Friends, Holubar, Sierra Designs, etc.

    Found a few brands I hadn't seen to date.

    Rogue's Gallery breton stripe shirt. Basic, made in Portugal, fits. (N/A)

    Massimo Dutti cotton/cashmere zip/button pullover. Luxurious hand, might be NWT as it appears to have the safety pin that comes on a new piece still on the tag.

    The most surprising find today was a pair of Unis chinos. Likely the Gio model as it's their most popular. Look to be a donation from a store as the content tag is cut and the Unis branding tag was removed. No idea who stocks Unis around these parts and this is the first pair I've handled in person. Easily as nice as Incotex, Outlier, Bill's, etc. Tagged size 34.

    I would never pick up Gianfranco Ferre as most everything I've seen has been extremely dated or poorly made. These pants blow that expectation out of the water. There is some sort of retail tag still attached and one slight tear on the leg that I might be able to fix when I have them slimmed out. They're a super soft combed cotton blend that almost feels like cashmere. The coolest detail is the drawstring at the bottom of the leg, kinda like minimalist flight pants. They have the same sizing tag font as I've seen on other fine Italian brands, so they must've been made in a quality factory.

    I'm not a microbiologist but...
    If a few days in a freezer kills bedbugs, why not try it with fungus?

    Naaaah, nothing to worry about.

    I'm also not a fungus expert, but I struggle to find a correlation between someone having a fungal infection, presumably on their foot and somehow transferring that to their bag...

    You've found drakes at Marshall's? I thought I remembered someone posting a pic of drakes with a tj maxx or Marshall's tag, but they never confirmed. I've never seen anything high end at the Marshall's near me, but I don't go very often.

    ended up skipping the junior statesman thing today I went with our president to san fransisco, I was very suprised since he is very uptight and got a 2400 on his sat's I think if you do that you are not allowed to be cool but somehow he is. anyway we went to uniqlo I bought some socks and then we messed around by walking into financial district offices and pretending we were there for a job interview because we were wearing suits, needless to say we did not get a job XD anyway tried to thrift but found nothing but a golden fleece orphan in 10% cashmere 90% wool also it was black and 15 dollars [​IMG] then we played a pick up game of basketball and won it helps that we are both 6 4' none of this really relates to thrifting that much but shout out to tben for the armani orphan it is the best fitting jacket I have ever owned, it has ALL the things, 3 roll 2 side vents ect I will post a thrift fit later but have to eat pizza because teenagers
