    See, Catside: Tony Blair DOES donate his tweed.

    Spoo? Yeah, not known for being a detail guy.


    No finds this weekend, dudes. Helped a family member move on Saturday, kid duty and home repairs all day Sunday. Hope to play some hooky this week and hit a couple of more remote stores.

    Great finds this weekend you guys!

    Here are my two today, available:

    Ermenegildo Zegna Gray Wool Overcoat 52

    Not sure how recent or desirable this is but with 50% off thrift prices I figured it was worth the gamble. 70% Wool 30% Angora. Super thick, however I realized when I got home that is a 52 not european size, so pretty big. What do you guys think? Good pick up?

    Hey guys, I don't remember who it was but somebody I talked to was looking for a pair of raw selvedge jeans.

    I was going to buy these Hulmet Lang raw/selvedge but ended up buying a pair of Naked & Famous elephant 2, 22 oz. monster!

    So I'm passing on the "deals" (sorry, not @ thrift prices) to you guys.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/319681/helmut-lang-raw-selvage-denim-size-31/0_100

    I offered the seller $70 shipped. He lives in Canada so shipping is like $20. That's a pretty good deal. Hopefully this will make someone's day!
