Quick fit at work this morning... 100% thrift Shurt: Burberry London Sweater: LP baby cash (that was a good day) Pants: Bagnoli Sh00z: Sutor Mantellassi I found a bunch of stuff last night (including an Isaia unstructured triple patch) but I was more excited about the framed salmon serigraph. Ichthyologist at heart. Deets/pics on clothes later.
 No, it's not easy. I'm going to be straight-up with you: if you're here for the singular purpose of making a quick buck, quit now. There are better ways to do it. Plenty of us DO make money, but it requires the same degree of discipline as any other business venture. More importantly, it will take a while before you're anywhere near competent enough to be profitable.  However, if you're enthusiastic about clothes, improving your personal style, and possibly making some...
 The best thing you can do is lurk and ask questions (but not questions like "what's "X" worth", a better thing to try would be to shoot a picture of a tag and be like "Is this a thing?"). You might also find the HOF label / nail pattern & thrift label threads helpful. More importantly... thrift, a lot. Just don't ask for prices on things, even if there are no completeds. Use your best judgement. Over time, you'll get really good at it.   
Those Marinellas      I did okay yesterday...               Shoe breakdown AE x 6  Deadstock Royal Imperial Longwings... 10D! First time finding deadstock in a normal size.      And these. :D          EG Dovers, 10E UK on the 32 last. Looked close to dead when I found them, but came back in a big way!           Not shown from earlier in week: Brown suede C&J wingtips, Yohji Yamamoto x2, Brioni tweed suit... etc, etc. Happy hunting. 
99.9% sure it's real. I have the same tie in pink.  Also, I'd trust Spoo's Versace ID expertise over most Versace employees
Some sh00z. Alfred Sargent / Brooks bros. 11D. One of the toe caps has some popped stitches, are these fixable? (If not, oh well-they were ten bucks)   [[SPOILER]]  Gucci, 10.5. Pity about the monograms; I'd rock em otherwise.  [[SPOILER]]  C&J / BB Peal. A little beaten up, but you don't leave $6 C&Js. 11.5 Bally, 10 Florsheim Royal Imperial guns, 8.5EEE  [[SPOILER]]   AE McAllisters, 10D Church's/Alan McAfee, 10.5C     Not sh00z Can haz Battistoni raincoat, 40 ...
These are the Tom Fords. Appear to be store samples. 9.5 US, available.     [[SPOILER]]
I think it works really well with the vintage frames. 
Thanks Spoo.  By some miracle, I was home for thanksgiving when she went downhill. She lost the ability to walk 20 minutes after I got through the door. I was able to properly say goodbye, which meant a lot. She lived a long, wonderful life, and was in no pain. We should all be so lucky.
I e-thrifted Tom Ford boots today, but I'm not posting them right now.     Instead, I'm posting the lower half of a year-old thrift fit—featuring my dog, who had to be euthanized today. We've had her since I was eight years old. Goodbye, my friend :(
