    Yeah, I'm hoping this is more of a currency item. It has 4 people watching it right now, so I'm hopeful ...

      As noted earlier, picked up a Brooks Brothers blazer in Loro Piana black/white houndstooth fabric, size 40R. Made in Italy, or so it says. Anyone interested?

              @greg: The Chanel didn't sell. Want to make an offer?

                Reading Dappered has definitely gotten me into a new thrifting addiction. Here's what I found in the last week:




                (Clockwise from top) Clarks Desert Boot ($15), Stacy Adams captoe ($20), Lands End gingham button up ($2.50), Millars wool tie ($3), and a Sir Pendleton wool button up ($5). Not too shabby.

                  Anyone down with knit ties?

                    Love knit ties... Thing is, all knit ties are made in the same 2 mills in Germany (I think) so a $25 Lands End knit tie is of equal quality to a $200 RLPL knit tie.


                    I really like vintage Rooster knit ties though.

                      Still have those Incotex trousers from a page back? I'd be interested!

                        And there are some Burberry London khakis floating around somewhere


                        I was intending to start a pants store on ebay tomorrow, but you (or anyone else) is welcome to first dibs.

                          @Jon, I appreciate it, but I'm guessing you'll be able to sell it eventually for more than I'd want to pay . I am, however, curious about the sizes of the various pants. Any 32 waist? I'm typically a 32x32 with vanity sizing (so more like 34" waist)

                            I have a pair of perfect charcoal J Crew pants in 32/32. Nothing you could wear until the fall, but they are supreme.
