    Wow, I didn't even know Polo RL did pure cashmere suits. I figured that would only come from their Purple Label line. Great score on those for sure!

    I wish it wasn't a lean week for me, I'd have snatched all three and the other two non cashmere![​IMG]

    I went back today and snatched 3 more Polo blue label cashmere suits in 40Regular.

    Some snags from Neiman Marcus Last Chance and Off Saks

    Silver and maroon ties are Charvet ($40/each), light blue (almost looks white) is Isaia 7-fold ($35), and purple plaid is a Saks Fifth Avenue house label ($20).

    Not so bad.

    Picked up this Ralph Lauren Polo suit at a Salvation Army for 15 bucks. Not my size but in excellent condition and looks like it was barely even worn..

    Here are some before/after pictures of recent shoe purchases. More to come in the future.

    Although I made no particular effort, the pictures were taken largely under the same circumstances, setting, and lighting. The "before" pictures are just what they looked like on the shelf. Also I'm still pretty new to caring for and polishing leather shoes.

    Thanks for the posters who suggested I should take "before" pictures of my shoes.

    ... This is the time of year that thrifting gets dreadfully slow, and borderline not worth the time.

    That looked like a haul that was worth your time. What does it look like when you're on a streak? [​IMG]

    ...Thanks to Goodwill, the Triangle of North Carolina has to be a world leader in orphan suit coats...

    It must be a competition within the whole organization because Dallas can also claim that title.

    Also found three 100% cashmere Ralph Lauren Polo suits in grey chalk stripe sb, olive db and charcoal single breasted. All were 43R. I grabbed the olive double breasted, it is luxurious.

    [​IMG] You left them? You just nuked your thrifting feng shui. [​IMG]

    Trickers Derbys - £6 - maybe worn twice from the unworn stamp on the insole [​IMG]

    Two eyelet and not the most elegant of lasts, but I wasn't complaining...


    The ManofKent thrifts? That's like finding out Prince Charles loves McDonalds.

    I gave up on the WAYWRN thread a while back but you always impressed me with your sense of style. [​IMG]

    Shoes look great. Strangely, I once thrifted two nearly identical pair. One black, one brown, same model I believe. Church's owners must be required to have the set.[​IMG]

    Found this Zanella shirt too good to pass up, NWT. This is available to purchase if you want it for your lady.
