Consignment Store: Trunk & Disorderly

The Worcester consignment store Trunk & Disorderly (formerly at the FYC location at 420 Pleasant St) had a grand opening this weekend at their new 120 Main St location (formerly Dr. Gonzo’s).

This is a straight-up consignment store: bring by your good stuff, and if it sells you split the proceeds 50/50 with the shop.

They are open Monday-Saturday, noon-7pm.

City Council Photo

I was at a City Council meeting a couple weeks back (for just a few minutes) and wondered why everyone was dressed up.  Then I realized it was picture time!

Here’s the finished product.  (You can compare this one to Councils of prior years.)

The award for best tie is — shockingly — Rick Rushton.  It looks like Phil went into his closet and pulled out his most unphotogenic burgundy tie.  Bring back the lime green tie, Phil!  (And, Joff, you’ve had better ties in the prior years’ photos — step up your game!)

Someone needed to tell Mike Germain to button his bottom button.

I really like the black suit Kate’s wearing.

And Konnie…is that leopard print?

Vintage: Brown herringbone jacket for Eddy’s of Worcester

Giuseppe Timore, the online men’s thrifter out of Boston, is offering a jacket in his online store originally made for “Eddy’s of Worcester.” I’ll be on the lookout for this label in Worcester thrift shops.

Update: Sold!

Brown herringbone tweed jacket by Cricketeer for Eddy’s of Worcester, Mass., size 40 long. Two button darted front, soft shoulders, brown braided leather buttons, four button cuff, center vent, patch pockets, half lined. 100% wool, made in USA. Note: one tiny hole has been repaired on right sleeve (see photos).

(More often than not I wear something I bought from Giuseppe (at a flea market) when I’m shooting 508. In recent months, it’s been a gray tweed jacket.)
