      • nice pickups @n0rm. Glad to see good prices too, can't imagine paying $50 for a thrifted suit or $40 for thrifted shoes. I haven't checked in on stock in a while so I'm past due. I'm looking for that fur coat for <$20 just because.

        • Thanks jonATL. Unfortunately, I live in a pretty rural area, so thrift stores generally don't have brands like brooks brothers and hickey freeman.

          • @JEH: You can make friends with old people that are about your size and make sure they work you into the will. :-O

            • Anyone need a Harris Tweed overcoat? The zip-in lining needs a bit of work, but this would keep you more than warm without it.


              The size is probably in the 40-42 range







              @JEH: Join Styleforum. Lurk in the thrift thread, contributing bits and pieces here and there (ONLY after you've done a ton of research and read the thread a bunch!). Trade for awesome stuff, or buy it on the cheap. Done.

              • And for all you guys wondering how to thrift, an education: http://thriftygent.com/how-to-thrift-details/

                (This is the best series of posts I've seen so far.)


                Measurements for the tweed overcoat:

                p2p: 24


                Sleeve (raglan): seem to be about 24-24.5, measuring from what seems to be the shoulder


                Shoulder: I'd say about 18, plus or minus half an inch


                Length: about 44

                    • I usually don't pick up Banana Republic while thrifting for myself, but this Tailor Fit 40 S fit really well. And it has peak lapels!


                      It's black corduroy, but I'll wear it with jeans, and it will work.

                      • i went to the salvation army on marietta and it was mostly a bust, but then i came across the ties... 3 bucks for any tie. i found a really nice condition brooks brothers pink, a nice colored merona tie... and then this one:

                        there were a pair of black AE shoes in my size for 20, but they were pretty beat u p.

                        • That's pretty nice for $3. My local resale/consignment store sells Zegna ties for $20-30 apiece (there's the occasional Isaia tie mixed in!), and the patterns are not as nice as the one you found!
