America’s Finest: Oxxford Clothes, Chicago, IL.
I came across this jacket last winter in one of my favorite thrift shops. It had recently come into the know about some of the high-end brands they often had in stock and had adjusted their prices accordingly. On the day I bought this there were some St. Andrew’s and Luciano Barbera suits on the racks in addition to the Oxxford sport coat pictured above. This jacket fit me perfectly with no alterations required, and was a steal at $45 (the St. Andrew’s and Luciano Barbera suits were priced around $250, and I’m not really sure why this Oxxford wasn’t similarly priced). Just another lesson in the value of a good thrift find. Dressing in quality handmade clothing doesn’t always have to set you back thousands of dollars.
