Thrift Score Tour, The End

This is what I actually went to the store for the day I came away with the largest thrift haul of my short thrifting life.

The Tuxedo

Wool Tuxedo ::$ 5.00 each piece

This is to refashion. I don’t dig the 80’s power shoulder look.

It’s hard to see in the long shot above, but the lower part of the lapels are satin. The waistband is satin and there’s also a satin stripe down the outside of the legs.

The pants are a tad short, though I’ve seen them worn this way. I was planning to make them into shorts, but I might leave them like that. I’m not sure yet.

That’s it for thrift stories, lol. You will see this tux back here after its surgery. I have a trip to the goldmine store where I found it, and all of the items featured in these posts,planned for sometime next week . I will be taking my sis here for the first time. She went crazy for the Salvation Army store when we went there (she found a wool coat for about $10) so I know she will love this place.
