I don't do any thirfting. Im a germaphobe, so thift stores don't work too well for me. If you have the time, you must go to Oxford. Its a trad/preppy mecca. Go to Landry's, Hinton and Hinton and Neilson's, all are on the square. Have lunch at Ajax Diner for country food or Proud Larry's for great bar food. You would really enjoy yourself.

Hinton and Hinton is having a "warehouse" sale (with supposedly deep discounts) at another location on the square. Last weekend was a football weekend but maybe there is some stuff left.
I went over to the warehouse sale last Saturday. A lot of nice stuff, mostly casual sportswear and suits and sportcoats. Everything is 50% off, which is actually less than some of it was when it was at the store. I think shirts go to 70% off in the store. There were a lot of options in shirts and outerwear, but the tailored stuff was all odd sizes. I dont think there was a single 44L in the store. It is worth a look though.

Oxford was fun but somewhat rushed. There weren't any sales except a very limited selection in Landry's. I had a nice conversation with who I assume was the owner of Landry's and a clothing representative. I encouraged him to look into grosgrain watch bands, I thought they would be popular with his clientel. It was also interesting to note that he sold Perlis crawfish polos. He said they sell well (a couple a dozen a week).

I didn't find the Hinton and Hinton warehouse sale. I didn't think about it until we had left and there wasn't a sign nor did any employee mention one.

National Menswear was an interesting stop. The highlight was 50 cent bottled cokes. They had a mixture of berle trousers and carhart garb.
You most likely spoke with Stan, who is indeed the owner of Landry's. I try to buy all of my clothing there now. I've shopped a lot of places, and havent found a store that equals their combination of great brands and amazingly friendly service. He certainly has correctly pegged the market in Oxford (preppy). They've been selling clothes since the 1890s. Hes in the process of adding some cool new lines like John H Daniel custom suits. What did you think of Hinton and Hinton? They really are a 180 from Landry's. Their sales staff used to be quite cold-shouldered, but seem much nicer now that I stop in and purchase items more frequently.
