    @eazye might be my favorite poster on this thread. Always finds incredible/unique stuff! Apparently I need to visit Chicago and do some thrifting...

    On my way from chiro to work today stopped into a couple thrifts, and had a bit of heart break, found a wonderful puppy tooth windowpane Hickey Freeman Bespoke SC in a 37s that fit beautifully, then I realized it had 3 or 4 moth holes in the sleeves. The second stop provided me with a nice Rubinacci shirt, a filson shirt, a nice J peterman linen suit, and a faconnable S/W blend SC. Unfortunately at work now, but will post pictures and details tonight.

    Got caught in a mini monsoon though, and wound up late for work, but c'est la vie.
