So here's the first of the jackets I picked up in said previous post.
I know - nothing special. It's from Jos. Banks but I think it's "older". It seems to be fairly well made. It only has two buttons but it is 100% wool and I liked the colors. This was taken in my office so the lights throw a strange color on it, but it's black and kind of a bronze small houndstooth.
No ticket pocket or anything special - but again, I liked it and it was $6.99. How could you go wrong.
I had a day off last week and another this week so I decided I'd take a stab at the thrift stores. "G" over at An Affordable Wardrobe has great luck finding great deals. But he lives in an area with "money'd" people. I don't find much very often. Well, between the two trip to three different stores I've ended up with 7 sport coats and two dress shirts and I spent about $45 for everything. I'm going to save pictures for another day but the "pud'n on top" was when I found a J. Press navy blazer that actually fit me and was in pretty good shape. Shhhh...my wife doesn't know about them yet.
