    Pretty neat seeing four different generations of BB tie keepers.

      Discount store find that's too big for me.

      Anyone looking for a staple cotton navy blazer? Tagged 52 Euro, it should fit around a 40-42 R because it's cut a bit slim. NWT Ballantyne, made in Italy. 98 percent cotton. Patch pockets. Double vent. AWESOME. I think these retail for around $1K, but I don't know for sure because I can't find anyone selling them. I think it's a season or two removed from Ballantyne's current offerings. If you're interested, let me know.

        Goodwill seldom disappoints me. I bought a pair of USA made, cap toe Johnston Murphy oxfords for $13.00, a Calvin Klein slim side-vented flat front suit for $17.00, and 3 Career Club shirts for $4.00 each. I get a 10% discount because I'm over 55. Savers gives a 20% discount on Tuesday if your over 55. Both stores give back to their communities.

              ^^ Damn nice. The one skinny Gitman Bros wool tie I thrifted sold BIN within hours of it being listed.

              Found this yesterday:







              Older (not vintage) staple Oxxford navy blazer. The gorge is dangerously close to being too low, but it's the first Oxxford piece I've found in months so I couldn't leave it.

                    Interested in flipping any of the first 3 from left to right? EDIT - Nevermind, just saw your post in the swap forum

                    also, where do you thrift? I am guessing from your screen name you are in the Atlanta area.



                    [MENTION=8849]cotoks[/MENTION], nice find.

                      Thrifted a pair of North Face adjustable cargo pants from Goodwill for $9 tonight. Will use these as beater pants for work

                        I came across a pair of Allen Edmond Richmonds Black Wingtip for $15. Perfect condition.

                        Didnt pull the trigger because I dont wear black shoes (especially not wingtips).

                        Think I should get them... just in case?

                          I don't see how having black wingtips in the closet can be a bad thing.

                              Absolutely. If you don't wear them after a few months, you can always unload them on here or eBay...

                                Don't know how many folks here in the forums will appreciate this one, but I had a great thrift find last weekend. I dropped some stuff off at Goodwill to donate and took a look through the store, too. I saw a cowboy hat. Black. A little dusty. Took it down off the shelf and saw that it was a Resistol "Black Gold" 20x beaver hat, in my size, and still perfectly shaped. Retail cost ~ $400. Sticker price = $6.99. Brought it home and cleaned it up and it is PERFECT.
