Monday is the last day to get your hands on some of Mayor Tom Menino’s best looks. The Thrift Shop of Boston is running a silent auction for two of Menino’s Jos. A. Bank suits, two Brooks Brothers shirts, and four designer ties until 5 p.m. on his last day in office. You can bid on the items at the Thrift Shop in Roslindale or by calling or e-mailing the operation. The money raised will go to the Home for Little Wanderers. Last we heard, bidding for the items was at $80. We’ll remind you that Red Sox World Series MVP David Ortiz’s beard clippings were recently sold in an online charity auction for more than $10,000.
