    thanks guys, first sportcoat is getting cut up into scrap for ties and pocket squares,
    also I know I don't have near as much inventory as you guys and I get rid of it fairly quickly but I still find some stuff I forgot about sometimes, for instance a made in austria camel hair duffle coat with detachable hood that fits me perfectly!!!!

    Thanks guys for the info on the stain. I will try it tonight.

    There was 15 borrelli ties but I left a few borrellis and purple labels because off statins and pulls.

    That's about all the brag worthy stuff I got.

    green_machine: Incredible haul. I don't think I'd rub alcohol on a printed silk Hermes tie. Send it to TieCrafters/Rave Fabricare or sell it as is.

    Sounds like a fox stole needs to be an item on the next scavenger hunt!

    If your shoes, toaster, cell phone or anything else does not stare at you, then you have a dearth of googly eyes. Easy remedy.

    God damn, dudes. I think I have a pretty great haul and I have to follow a few crazy ass ones? Not fair.

    Anyway, here's what I got from 3-4 stores in Northern Minnesota. Friendliest employees ever. Two older ladies at the first store were really excited to map out the area, thrift/consignment-wise.

    Everything is N/A for now. Best part of all of these is that they're all approximately my size. Still have to try everything on to see which are keepers.

    L to R: Woolrich wool w/ corduroy collar, Eddie Bauer Harris Tweed, Bemidji Woolen Mills

    L to R: Judy Stern(?), Schott Down coat with removable hood, Pendleton hat, mint-ass Levi's Type 1, Pendleton western
    [​IMG]

    Any idea a guesstimated date on this hat? Newish? Oldish? Looks like it was never worn.

    Pendleton Western w/ metal buttons

    Not sure why this is sideways. Any idea what this is? Made in USA, thick canvas with wool collar and shoulders and crazy buttons.

    any idea?


    Also, before I left town, I made a quick stop while running an errand for work. In the middle of a rack filled with overpriced London Fogs, I felt this and knew it was something.

    Alpaca/Virgin Wool Max Mara. Obviously not for me.

    Nah, it's women's. I thought it was men's at first and was really confused, but it's going on the bay and it's going to fund an equally cool men's coat for me.

    Trying to cut back, organize and clear my inventory. But I JUST...CAN'T...STOP!
    Most notable this weekend:
    Full length Mongolian cashmere overcoat. Knew as soon as I touched the shoulder, this was no camelhair.

    Saw these guys at the GW today when I went. I passed because they're not my size but I was disappointed that they weren't. If anyone wants them, I can probably pop back in and grab 'em.

    How are they though?
