    awesome older woolrich norfolk jacket. lined and all. a little big to wear as a traditional sportcoat but just right for over a sweater. still, not sure if ill wear it, just dont know about the style... but im going to give it a shot and see what i think.

    need some help on this one.

    100% wool. made in Italy. not handmade but really good quality. what do you call it? a wool bomber, flight jacket? tartan lining on the seams inside. love the contrasting collar and cuffs. and the working throat latch. is it made by cantarelli? i dont know if cantarelli esquire is affiliated or not. thats the only tag on it. sizing is also European. already wore it twice and got plenty of compliments. this is going to get plenty of wear regardless of who made it.

    seriously, why can i never find a jacket like this in my size! ive wanted one forever. 44 avail. horn toggles, tartan lining, pure wool. hooded. staple navy. only think is i didnt see it until i got it home that there are a couple moth wholes on the top of the hood. still would have gotten it even if i saw them because with the way its woven its damn near impossible to spot. thank god for a slightly shaggy exterior!

    Any of you guys ever find thrift hauls you stashed away from yourself? Found this Michael drake for Paul Stuart along with some coats in a box I forgot about.

    [​IMG]

    The rest .... Was incredibly forgettable.

    Anyone know anything about a company called Lewis Creek? Traded another thrifter for a waxed cotton jacket from them and it's really well made. I'm looking for some fabric to try and get an inch, inch and a half added to the sleeves, and I don't think I'm going to find blackwatch waxed cotton just lying around anywhere. Website makes them seem largely defunct but I'm probably going to give the listed number a call anyway and check with the recommended reproofers as well.

    Found a Brioni S180s POW SC on a brush by and my mind went "Wha...damn...that feels fucking fantastic, what is this magical beast?" Then I flipped it open to see a very recent Brioni in S180s with all the fixin's and nickel and quarter sized thick MOP buttons. Got it home only to find some minor moth damage on one shoulder that was hidden by the tag. In a 44L.

    In spirit of art thrifting. Picked up this lithograph cause it looked amazing, sitting at a local mom and pop un framed. Got it for $3.
    Went home and found out the artist sells them for 900 a pop, this one was for the 86 expo, and isn't available anymore.

    Artist name is Ted Harrison.

    Side picture to avoid glare.

    So a few weeks ago, when thrifting with Wes and found an original sketch, by E. Stewart Williams from 1939 for about 5 bucks.

    Went out on half off day, new cart rolling out, two more came a flowing. Amazing. Does anyone, maybe @330CK or other art finders have any idea on how to get these appraised? I can't find anything ever sold from his work.

    Thats awesome. Just had a similar experience with Brioni Super 180s on a bespoke suit. Was thrifted as well, but not by me.

    That stuff is so damn soft, its amazing

    1) Happy birthday dude, what a wonderful present from the thrift gods!

    2) If these are from Canadians wintering in Florida, you tell them to start donating this shit back up North!
