Gentlemen,

Show us what have you recently purchased, thrifted, inherited, received as a gift, found, etc. Does not necessarily have to be clothing related. Perhaps a good book, new car, shotgun, vacation home, a new tie, shoes, fly fishing rod, sweater, boat, dog, or a suit. Show us your goods. :)

--------------------------------------------

Some of my recent acquisitions over the past few months:

Brooks Brothers Madison Donegal 1818 Sack Suit

Brooks Brothers Brooksease (Grey) Sack Suit
Image

Brooks Brothers Brooksease (Navy) Sack Suit
Image

Brooks Brothers University Blazer (Such a great jacket, I had to buy a second one)
Image

Brooks Brothers Wool Muffler / Scarf
Image

Polo Ralph Lauren Sterling Silver Engine Turned Belt Buckle
Image

Polo Ralph Lauren Fair Isle Socks
Image

L.L. Bean Sweaters
Image

J. Crew Fair Isle Sweater Vest
Image

J. Crew 'University Stripe' Wool Scarf
Image

Eddie Bauer Charcoal Cotton / Cashmere Blend Sweater Vest
Image

Eddie Bauer Sweaters
Image

John Partridge Duffle Coat
Image

Riviera Grey Flannel Trousers

I recently found a Mom & Pop optical shop closing its doors and after searching through an endless supply of ugly 'fashionable' rectangular glasses, I found these at a bottom of a box. Bought for pennies on the dollar, they will be kept in reserve in the event something happens to my beloved Anglo-American 406's.

Indeed you have. More people need to stop sitting on their hands waiting for the world to end (the world will be around for a while yet - we won't get off that easily, I'm afraid).

I envy you that book on BB, since I've never been able to find a copy.

I picked up a pair of Sebago Classic loafers just before Christmas, to replace an earlier pair which was too big. These fit fine. I think I will get a pair in either "antiqued brown" or "whiskey" in the spring.

I also picked up a cashmere/wool blend overcoat from a local thrift store. It has an old Eaton label inside and other details suggest it probably dates from the 1960s or early 1970s. Seriously cold weather lately has allowed me to put it to good use: it's warm and heavy and buttons high - perfect for a Canuck winter.

The BB "big buck" cords came from the thrift exchange and the Polo duck/pheasant cords and chino jacket were each only $14 at the outlet.

Nice, Brian.

I picked up the brown embroidered cords and love them. I can't believe how heavy they are.

Did you get the navy pair from the PRL outlet too? I didn't see those during my last trip.

Yeah, the B2 "big buck" cords are some great trousers. I wore mine not too long ago during our snowstorms.

I didn't see those, but they had some red cords w/ a crest on them, unfortunately not in my size.

For those of you who do not have an evil manservant trained in the photographic arts, and are tired of balancing your camera on the windowsill, kitchen counter or bathroom sink, I give you the Gorilla Pod, a small, lightweight, extremely handy little gizmo, available from the manufacturer (Joby) or from LL bean.

It's freestanding and infinitely adaptable. This is the medium-sized model; I would probably get the bigger one if I had it to do over, but this is fine for now.

In a pinch it could even work like a SteadiCam, using the neck strap and angling the legs into the chest.

Today I bought one of the (now discontinued) Canadian Forces "extreme weather parkas" for winter. The market is being flooded right now with a lot of brand new ones which were never issued. These things are rated for -65C or something like that. There is nothing warmer.

Two eBayed items arrived today: a BB Makers sack in a gray windowpane, and a BB tweed sack in a pattern I would describe as "Semi-Bookie."

Also burgundy AE Hanovers from Grapevinehill.

nice hat, Alan.

Here's is another of my Eddie Bauer post-Christmas sale haul items:

Their "Bivi" sweater. It is a blend of cotton, nylon and something else. It reminds me of a shaker knit sweater combined with a commando sweater.

I like it. It came in "tall" so it won't go up my back when I sit down.

PRL corduroy jacket. It's actually darker than in the photograph. More of a darker khaki. Although, I'm not crazy about the leather patches and darts, but for 75% off retail....
