Good winter day to you all

Woke up this morning to a blanket of white.

It's really much prettier than it comes across in the photo's.

Across the street and into the valley.
Happy winter.

One of the new collection

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.

OMG I can't believe what I found

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. wife doesn't know about them yet.

More to come...
