    A man after my own heart! Haha....spent more on tailoring than I did on the jacket itself.

      [MENTION=14917]Nate Chorney[/MENTION] that's a nice looking jacket. Regarding the tailoring, yeah, isn't that the way? Still. Looks good.

        I appreciate that! I'm going to some Scottish Highland games this weekend. I'm hoping its cool enough in the mountains to wear it! I'll hopefully get some better pics too haha.

          Couple more shots of my 1950's 3/2 roll harris tweed. Not bad for $30 on ebay and $45 for tailoring.

              Okay, so another question...Did I pass up a good deal?

              Italian, wool/mohair unconstructed jacket. Fit perfect except for a little tailoring needed. Really nice and lightweight weave. Med/dark brown.

              But it was crunchy? kinda looked and felt like bad 70's poly suits? is that normal for mohair? I know it can be scratchy...

                This totally just happened, despite my wife's pleading. 100% wool, made in Germany. The holiday season can't get here fast enough boys....

                    Not sure this qualifies as thrifting, but I was in Asheville recently and picked up a navy dock peacoat at the J. Crew clearance store for $90. Needs to have the buttons secured a little better, but otherwise it's in perfect condition.

                      The bottom really only looks elasticized. At one point I'm sure it was, though it has no stretch to it anymore.
                      Close up:
                      Yep, that's suede. The nap just needs to be freshened up. That jacket is totally 90s, which I hear are making a comeback as of this year. You heard that right: baggy clothes are coming back!

                        Oh, interesting. I guess the tag that says leather must be a typo...

                          You don't consider suede to fall under the category of "leather"? Regardless, if it has a nap, it's suede.

                            Not that exciting but my first non-tie thrift..

                            Bonobos weekday warriors in Friday Grey, appears unworn, for 3.49.

                            Also was a pair of Bonobos cords but a size too small and the wrong color tag to get half off...

                              Went back today just in case.....and it paid off. Found a pair of Thursday Browns, however in a 32 instead of 33. Little snug, hopefully they won't shrink at all.

                                Saks winter jacket

                                Found this today at a local savers. Looked it over a million times and can't find any flaws. Hand stitched button holes, partially lined, beautiful wool...and that price!!! Not going to lie this made my weekend and I can't wait to be able to wear this regularly.

                                Side note: Ever since I saw that recent movie with Tom Hanks and some East Germans stole his Saks jacket I have wanted one so bad.
