    Word. Just didn't know if there was some unspoken rule about it.

      I just acquired a vintage smoking jacket. There are no content tags, I'm guessing it could be poly or a heavy silk, cannot really tell. I'm wondering if I can hand wash it or if dry cleaning is the way to go? It looks like Chinese brocade. Any suggestions?

          Thrifting

          I noticed my favorite local thrift store has officially jacked their prices on clothing. Went today and saw that most of their button up dress/casual shirts were now priced @ $9.99. They also seem to be taking liberties with how they price NWT merch. $49.99 for jackets, for example. Thanks but no thanks. I knew GW had kinda started upping their prices but this other store is also a non-profit. The price increases almost make it pointless to go thrifting if I don't think I'm getting a deal. Looks like I won't be shopping at this thrift store anymore

            Probably a diffusion line but if it fits, it fits.

            Picked up two shirts at the local consignment store, Borrelli and Alessandro Gherardi in my size. Excellent condition, about the price of a CT shirt on sale, so not thrift-store prices, but the sleeves on the latter shirt were attached by hand and it's the most incredible 200/2 cotton fabric I've ever felt.

              Snagged a wool/cashmere Brooks blazer with the pockets still sealed. Immaculate condition, almost NWT. This thing feels amazing. Just wish it was my size.

                  Pretty sure it's a 44L but I'll check after work.

                                Thrifted a couple more casual OCBD's and a North Face LS shirt. I came across a used Barbour flannel today but had to pass on it because it fit too small. It was labeled a large but fit like a medium. Bummed about that one cuz I've never come across used Barbour stuff
