    Hey guys, I'm not thrifting right now, but there's a good reason for it: I'm glued to my computer watching a local comedian do 24 hours of comedy as a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

    The comedy is definitely on the absurd/bizarre end, but it can be really funny and it's for a good cause. I thought I'd share the link in case anyone else is just sitting around right now. And if you can donate, do that too!



    PS recent thrift finds coming later today.

    Magnanni actually makes decent shoes. I bought a pair of cognac cap toes from NM Last Call for $60 marked down from $300. FTW!

    Couple recent dribs and drabs:

    JAB 2 button single vented sc - pretty sure this is the first JAB tailored piece I've ever picked up, the colors were pretty awesome. 46L. Available.

    [​IMG]

    RLBL (yes, black label) shirt - size 17. Green gingham. Obvious black label fit, pretty snazzy. FYI, these are made by Lorenzini same as the RLPL, even the tags are the same. Available pending a bud's response on it.

    Ferragamo, Versace(?) ties:

    If that Versace is real, it's wearable as all get out. :nod:

    Speaking of which... [​IMG]

    Real? Worth selling?

    I just passed on a Paul Stuart grey 1 inch square glen plaid, 41-42 some minor fabric issues on trousers however totally wearable/fixable for the handy. The amazing thing is the entire suit jacket was un-lined. Every seam was finished with edging, really really high degree of handwork. It was 20 bucks, I can proxy if anybody wants it PM me. 2 button, pleated pants.

    I Think it's safe to say that that's not newish. Nice!

    That's pretty damn old. Not the oldest script logo I've seen, but probably mid to late 60s is my guess. Good find, probably super heavy. I really wish L.L. Bean would do a collaboration a la Eddie Bauer and Nigel Cabourn, where they re-release modern interpretations from the archives.

    Yeah, I had forgotten that the LL Bean signature stuff says signature on the label.

    Finally caught up on the thread. Reading quickly, so this may not be accurate, but here is what I learned:

    Ian used to be hilariously noobish.
    Handershund is all gentlemanly and helps old ladies.
    Wes thrifted a two-story garage at some point.

    I actually thrifted that jacket except in a long version last year. Thing was suuuuuuuuper warm but too large for me. I gave it to one of my buddy's who is taller than me and he swears by it for the cold Chicago winters. Nice score!!!
