Bingo. +1,000I think this describes a lot of us here. A lot of us couldn't afford/it would be irresponsible to buy $200 Lauren coats even if we wanted to. Car payments, kids, mortgages, etc...take priority. However, making a fifty here and a fifty there flipping stuff to buy a used cashmere Zegna SC or whatever? Now you're talking. And Brian talks about the "thrill of the hunt," too, which I think we all have to love or we wouldn't be here. So sell those wide blade 1974...
Speaking of dead end discussions, you are annoyed with us for having too many side discussions and then take us here? Borderline troll stuff IMHO.In the end, what we're many of us are trying to do here is make enough bread to improve our wardrobes without dipping into the mortgage or car payment fund. Building cash reserves to buy quality things from each other or best of all, swap.If you're offended because Spoo, me, Brianpore, Nataku, whomever are eBaying some stuff that...
last night's pickups, coats 42R [[SPOILER]] [[SPOILER]] And the rare Talbott Omaggio spotted in the wild. Not like it's super special, just...don't see a lot.
I gotta send the Vintage Fashion Guild a pic of my label. They don't have it and could add it to the collection. Thanks for your contribution here, even though it raises more questions (happens a lot here because those manufacturers refuse to date their garments like the mind does coins, ha)Just by the "C" in company, compared to the dates at the Label Resource, I am guessing 1965-1972. Ish
PS: My girlfriend from college mailed me love notes during holiday breaks written on the back of Waffle House paper placemats....during breaks on her shifts. No, we didn't get married.
Sick as a dog, you guys should be glad you can't catch this vile cold over the Internet. Ugh. Today's find. Vintage...short sleeved wool cardigan? Shirt? Where was this intended to be worn? Also if it has a button in the back of the collar, is that designed to keep a tie in order, or just to keep the collar from going sloppy? Also, any guesses on vintage? I say 50s-early 60s, my wife -- who is a font expert but not a clothes expert -- is betting older
Was it shrinkage or is that just Paul Smith sizing? I found a cool M, was stoked...then put it on back at home. If it was an S in real life that would be exaggerating. A thrift I go to has an XL I was going to pick up but...collar fraying. I should go and try it on -- and then we'd know.
I have this exact shirt, I bought clearance at the Orvis outlet. I love the shirt but 3 of those @#$%#$@^#$%$%^& rivets have come off in 2 washings and you can't put them back on. You can't apply the spare, either, as they apparently use heat in some part of the application process. Can't decide whether to take it to the Orvis mothership in Manchester, VT and ask WTF I can get in exchange or...put buttons on it and call it a day. I love the shirt, it's nice, a different...
PSA for all those who have the luxury of Polo, Sak's Off 5th, BB (higher-end) outlets, etc. I did a cruise today knowing that some good stuff might pop up. Places are loaded right now. In particular, the BB outlet had gotten a truckload of retail (not '346') stuff and practically all the store was discounted 60-70-80% off. Now that still isn't perfect thrift prices but the NWT premium is worth it sometimes, n'est ce pas? I looked and looked and looked. There was some gr8...
