    While in NC for a funeral snagged these...

    AE Fairgate in shell... size 11E... fits me, woot! Can't say I was in the market for a captoe blucher, but for 4 bucks... yep. The downside: one of the lines of stitching on one of the corners of one "blucher" has pulled loose, creating a tiny crack in the shell right there under there. I have them in the mail to B. Nelson already to see if he can sew it back down and salvage the shoes. If not, oh, well, 4 bucks!

    Only other find on my (two) thrift stops down there was a R&G shirt... fffff.

    Orgetorix nice fit. TBen fit is good I think, but pictures can improve :D Wes, super transformation, you are clearly a very handy dude.

    I passed so many ready flippables today that I think our local flippers got a bug or something. I am having increasing mental difficulty in flipping thing myself. Really have to drag my feet.
    I bought for myself nwot Pendleton wool tartan shirts, three lambswool/Shetland sweaters Alan Payne and BB at ten bucks each. I got a very nice Southwick tweed which fits nicely, and was half price at 8 bucks and change. All for personal consumption.
    Then I saw and had to buy -thrifters pride and all- an Arcteryx Alpha LT Goretex Proshell rain coat. XXL. I had Klobber in mind otherwise may be available or I wear it big walking the dog in rainy days of summer/late spring myself. It's mint and here is how it looks when new and 500 bucks:

    Past couple days - still working out the kinks of lighting, so excuse the shadows.

    Bit garish and beat but love the combo wool/silk texture (70/30), and not an issue when I inevitably wreck it during formal season.

    Press ties - dates on labels? The navy one is nearly identical to the Hermes I just traded Beck for :)fistbump:), so available for cool trades.

    Nice find! Arteryx is like the Mercedes Benz of outdoors wear. The material used is top notched.

    Awesome! Glad you got to see for yourself how nice this stuff is. That right there is an amazing find. I've seen Arctyrex shirts but only once have I ever found an outerwear piece by them. It was the Theta shell jacket, very similar to the one you found. Only reason I found it was that I was working at the Salvation Army at the time and was going through unprocessed donations from a very wealthy area. It fits like a glove and I still have it. One of my favorite jackets.

    It won't fit you Machiavelli Mexicano. Otherwise I would gift it to you.
