Help. At some point I read some piece on SF or elsewhere about searching for buttons on eBay for sport coats. found buttons, bought them, etc. This article explained what search operators would narrow things down. I need 2 sets right now for a couple coats...and Jo-Ann sucks. I've bought sets in the past on eBay! But when I search tonight, it's all lots for coats bragging about the buttons in the listing titles. How to I narrow the x thousand lots down to show actual...
OK I doubled back and got the Calvin Klein COllection jacket. Authorities here...ID label Vestimenta or something else (good or suck...seems like a well built piece?) Also a Dunhill shirt that I like...
Here's some Wisdom, Knowledge & Truth: Speaking of Robert Graham and the Maxx, I dropped by my fave looking for Kiton ties after recent poasts here got my hopes up...and found none. And they appear to have just loaded the racks with awesome markdowns of everything, they were stuffed (OK, I won't pay $139 for an RLBL cashmere sweater, but I acknowledge that's a hell of a deal if you're in the market). However, I saw Robert Graham ties. They were marked down to $20, which,...
Oh, can anyone tell me who makes "Calvin Klein Collection" made in Italy? I had a SC tonight but the label was too faded to shoot or I would have...passed on it but wonder if it was a good one or just meh...
Thrift gods have been evening things out lately, as if to say "You found two Huntsmans a couple weeks ago. You need to see a lot of ancient Zegnas and hole-ridden Canalis for a while, among the Strathmore and Evan-Piccones and Oscar de la Renta." Found this tonight, tho, I will wear it at least a couple times before sending to Spooland. It may help me overcome my aversion to brown ties, it's pretty cool...
Kind of?
...the Jobs Jacket would force you to carry the built-in Stocks and Passbook documents that reappear in the pockets when you throw them away, and track everywhere you go and sell your location to the highest bidder....all the while telling you how much better than the Gates jacket it is. And it would reek of patchouli
Returned to ll bean outlet today for kids clothes. They are having a heckuva sale and have truckloads of good stuff. EazyE here's some signature label pix -- I see your boots had "Inc." on the signature label and the characters seems smashed (kerned) together moar closely than these labels. I would guess those are the tells old v new From a coat, above and below. Below that, khaki shorts. Note the word "signature" appears only in hang tag, although "Freeport Maine"...
classic thrift thread post, the BIll Gates suit.Now if you could only flip it because of the provenance. Unfortunately, it's probably not worth much (you wouldn't believe how much stuff people brought to me as a sports memorabilia writer -- "but this is Mickey Mantle's cigarette lighter!" "DId he use it to hit a home run or sign it?" "No, but it's Mickey Mantle's!" "Sorry, son.") but it's something that SHOULD be.Although, in this case, I wonder what an appraiser would...
Oh I don't doubt they're vintage. The new stuff doesn't all say signature, and usually the signature is reversed out on a dark label. Just went thru all my shirts and coats and apparently I've swapped/given away the pieces I had. In the men's clothes I can't tell the diff between signature and reg lines quality wise but when I get clothes at the outlet for my wife there's a huge step up quality wise I've noticed with the women's signature stuff...it's funny how I see ll...
