    Found at a single thrift store tonight:

    Hickey Freeman glen plaid suit
    Hickey Freeman houndstooth jacket
    Hickey Freeman gun club check jacket
    Oxxford plaid jacket
    Oxxford jacket #2 (black and white; not sure how to describe the pattern)

    The best part: everything is my size and fits great, no alterations needed (except the suit pants). One of the HF jackets has more shoulder padding than I'd like, but I can't complain. Paid $50 total.

    ^^^Great finds, Sean. Oxxford and H-F are two of my favorite brands. Oxxford is out-of-this-world quality and H-F is even better than its reputation. Take an Oxxford with smooth fabric and fold the lapel back, then look at the basting sometime. Beautiful handwork.

    Ralph Lauren Collection 100% Cashmere (made in Italy) overcoat for $40 good deal to you guys? Size 40/42 I don't remember. It's in mint condition...not much wear I can tell. It's actually a man's with buttons on the right hand side...as I thought the "collection" line is for ladies.

    If its 100% cashmere and it fits you then yes!

    If not I'll take it if it's big enough [​IMG]

    Not recent, but I picked up Dolce & Gabbana black long coat for $75 at Filenes Basement in Wash DC couple years ago, but still regret about not picking up this $125 absolutely cool looking slim fitted long coat by Vivienne Westwood. For recent score, I just picked up couple Diesel jeans for $39 each at Marshalls.

    Question: came across a few "Gianni" items in my last few thrift runs. The script looks exactly like that in the "Gianni Versace" line, but it only says "Gianni". Is this a Versace diffusion line or is it something else altogether? Quality looks pretty craptastic and I wouldn't pick it up myself, I was just curious.

    I might be wrong but I think this is just one of those knock-off lines that tries to sound like it is a "designer" brand. Where was it made?

    go back and get the sweaters if they are still there... one of mine is at $520 with 5 days to go [​IMG]

    your brioni shirt will probably net at least 100 bucks on Ebay, I had one a while back in pretty good condition and got like 115


    Thanks. Now that the afterglow of finding it is fading I'm thinking it's heading to eBay.

    Jeez, I need to move to Dallas!

    No! Look at that haul he pulled in. It's already too hard to for me compete with the new guy trolling full-time. Perhaps it's time for the old man to retire and make way for the next generation...[​IMG]

    I think he meant trolling, as in continuously fishing, as a metaphor for your shopping. Not trolling in reference to your forum participation.
