    Most of these items didn't fit me, but would any be worth flipping?
    Faconnable Tailleur sportcoat, canvassed w-pickstitching:

    Bill's Khakis that were about an inch too short:

    I'd go back and grab these two. Bills Khakis are great and get a lot of love here. Especially plat front models. Faconnable isn't the best label around, but their Tailleur label was amazing. I came across one in a consignment shop in San Diego once but they wanted $150 for it. They are made by Caruso, I think. Don't quote me on that, though. Could be another nice maker like St Andrews or Cantarelli, but I'm pretty sure it was Caruso from what I saw.

    Does anyone know anything about Michaelsons? I've not heard of them.

    English tie-maker, solid, not Drake's level, but did some good stuff.

    Here is the Aquascutum trench I found:

    I was looking for a trench and it seems to fit just right in the shoulders over a jacket. It borders on tenty but it is belted so that doesn't really matter....probably would prefer DB but for $4, this will hold me over until I find one I like. Anyone know anything about it from the labels? It is probably something akin to the current Aquamac line or the lower level other pieces (since it isn't cotton and it does not have the heavy lining).

    Also picked up a pair of pants that seem to be pretty well made but I can't identify who made them (I am guessing orphaned from a suit due to the lack of labeling)
    Anyone recognize these tags?

    No clothing on any interest, but possibly one of my stranger finds: a 1950s (I believe) surgical lamp.

    Thrifted a Bally briefcase for $2.98. It has two 3 digit combination locks that I've tried to crack but can't. Would a locksmith open it for me? If so, how much could I expect to be charged? I'm not even sure I'd get any use out of this to be honest, just thought it looked cool. Crappy phone pics are here.

    Decent day. Found a pair of NWOT Allen Edmonds black penny loafers (Randolphs) in size 10. Not my size, but these things are minty mint if anyone is interested.

    Also found a bunch of ties, including a stash from someone who must have been a hunter/outdoorsman, as nearly all of the ties have birds on them. An old Robert Talbott with a duck motif, and a couple older Lands' Ends with pheasants. Also, a weird custom tie made for the New York Stock Exchange with a repeating motif of a fighting bear and bull. [​IMG]

    Stopped at a few thrifts on the way home today. Picked up a few things:

    - Robert Talbott Seven-Fold tie. First one I've found in at least 2 years.
    - NWT Vineyard Vines tie
    - Smartwool 3/4 Zip Sweater
    - Recent Sanyo "Carrol" model overcoat.

    What? Who collects surgical lamps from the 1950's? And should they really have your address? [​IMG]

    Passed on several pairs of Zanella pants in various chino-ish colors, 34 and 36, and some awesome, but very loud, linen pants by Polo made in Italy, including electric pink, size 36. Two Oxxford SCs, size 44: one silk and summery, one blue/black wool from '87. Resisting the urge to cop every nice thing I find, since it takes awhile to trade. [​IMG]

    Irresistable: recent Etro pants/jeans. PAISLEY! Euro-sized 50 or thereabouts. Will post later for gasps and lulz.

    Just keep trying....there are only 1000 combos.

    I found a 3-digit luggage lock in the gutter at the airport once....had it open before the cab ride was over (on literally the *last* combo I tried...I started at 001 and the combo was 000)
