    In the process of having my best haul ever right now. Two carts full to the brim. Need another hour in this store.

    My experience with re-weavers has been that if it the hole is in an inconspicuous area, it might be OK. But I wouldn't want a re-weave mole right in the place someone will look when shaking my hand. And $100 to re-weave a light blue suit I would never have occasion to wear didn't seem worthwhile.

    Interesting note about the textile re-manufacturers. Just wish the thrift store employees took half as much care in looking for holes as they do in marking up 'desirable' brands.


    I really dig Oliver Spencer. Nice stuff, very contemporary and at a good price point. That label looks a bit older, but should still make someone very happy.

    Speaking of re-weaving, for what it's worth, you can get denim darned. These guys will fix that right up.

    By the way, have I said lately how much I hate that we're the same size in EVERYTHING?

    Nice! I have a Gant Rugger remake of the Woolster, probably not as high quality as that one, but I love it. Very warm.

    Those Edwins look like selvedge and are buckle backs. NICE! Edwins is basically the Levis of Japan, except with a higher starting price point and AFAIK, all their jeans are made in Japan. Their basic, non selvedge offerings start at about $80-$100. The ones you have would be equivilant to LVC or higher when comparing the brand to Levis. Those jeans likely retailed $250+ and are pretty tough to come by outside of Japan.

    So, after a couple of weeks of not finding shit, I had a decent day yesterday...

    Not Pictured:
    Borrelli Button-Down Collar, Mitered Cuffs, Large Beige/White Stripe Shirt

    Vineyard Vines 100s 2-Ply Check shirt
    This ended up having a huge tear on the sleeve. Hate when I dont spot things like this!

    Seven for all Mankind 'The Straight' Jeans. To pay for my addiction of course.

    RRL 'Boy Fit' Jeans with horrible wear treatment. It makes the jeans look cheap. Might post photos later.

    Now on to the photo'd stuff.

    Gloverall 100% New Wool Pea Coat, Sz. M.
    Ive been trying to do some research because I cant figure out if this is a Mens or Womens.
    The color says Womens and the shoulders feel kinda narrow. Is there an easy way to tell on the Gloveralls?

    Brianpore,

    Nice finds! That Smedley x Supreme is $$$. The jacket is a women's. Look at how it buttons.

    I'd go with women's. It looks as though it should button on the other side, did the other flap have buttons holes? That single button looks as though it goes on the inside.

    Gloverall duffles are difficult to tell and the women's look just like the men's, except for the buttoning. Since they look the same, it's not a big deal to buy/wear a women's duffle if you don't mind the buttons on the opposite side.
