    Big time Cherry Popped!
    First Kiton anything. Wow are the MOP buttons on these huge. It was funny seeing it next to a Tommy Bahama that was priced 5x what this was. Take it my local GW didn't know this brand.

    This is just an interesting find for myself. Figured it would be good for a night out dancing with my GF or something. Interesting fabric made in Austria. Anybody?

    Funny thing was last owner must have thought the same thing - see what was in the pocket on checking it when home.

    Holy shit! The Stronghold is a legendary shop in LA and is one of the oldest American denim label started in the 19th century. This is super awesome!!!!!!!!!!

    For future reference, Plokhov/Cloak buttons should look like this

    Unless I'm totally wrong and there are different versions.

    Yeah, those will do more than OK. I have a pair that is pretty amazing, but I paid full retail for them at the Venice store while out in LA visiting my brother. Awesome shop, expensive wares.

    I've come across some of their stuff as well. Never picked it up, since it didn't fit, but some of it seemed pretty decent. Good to know for future reference.

    Brand new Polo Ralph Lauren boots. Not a bad find at all.

    Does anyone else get pumped when they notice the lining of the suit pants is black and not white? It's becoming a rarity to find a suit with non-soiled pants - especially at a goodwill. Sometimes I'm lucky and the suit is a pattern that allows the jacket to be sold as a sport coat and I'll just ditch the pants.

    Tiffany's is opening a location in my city today.

    So now only 20 more years until I can start thrifting Tiffany's locally!

    Whaaaaat??? :fu:
    Wow! Score on the Stronghold denim! I've been wanting a pair of a long time. Also wanted their awning stripe shirt which was sold on Orvis' website down to $50 on sale but is now gone. :brick:
    I dunno man, Tiffany's has had a location here for a long time and I've yet to find anything by them besides some porcelain bowls that were surprisingly worthless. Hopefully you'll have better luck in 20 years.

    One thing w Tiffany is that there are people dedicated to hunting Tiffany so it makes it much harder. Everyone knows Tiffany is worth $$

    Hmm....

    Guess I didn't know that Stronghold was such a good brand. They actually fit, but didn't feel rigid like my 3Sixteen 14.5 oz selvedge. They are almost "springy" rather than full stiff. Maybe I should keep them??

    Edit: Pretty sure they've been hemmed as well as they fit me (32 inseam) without need for cuffing.

    I only own 1 pair of jeans (the aforementioned 3sixteen shadow selvedge) so maybe I need a regular indigo one.

    Ordered 3 different sizes of Gustin and have had to resell because I can't get their fit right!

    FOX BUTTON Pytchley, that is what I was going to suggest as well. Looks identical to the one i found earlier this year. Very thick riding wool, but was a sweet jacket.
