After striking out for the past week or so some cool stuff finally ended up my way. Someone really liked Ben Silver ties. I think this is brand new.... Thought this was cool but not too keen on the Target logos... Oxxford charcoal subtle POW check 2 btn suit. 43 L This is going straight to my closet. First time finding this label. Almost blew over it thinking it was just another Rogue State/Rogue Status piece of garbage. So bummed this does not fit...
PSA for Minnesota folks: I hardly ever get there but you Minnesota guys may want to hit Unique in Columbia Heights soon. Bits and pieces of a pretty crazy donation are trickling out. New Aldens. Arny's safari jacket, Kiton cashmere, etc.
Not really feeling like posting my meager finds from today after seeing these new SF or LA guys pulling out Kiton and Brioni cashmere like it's Stafford.Seriously though, wow! This past week has been insane in terms of finds on here.Don't really know anything about it but I saw it for the first time at the Adidas store in Tokyo a couple years ago. Thought there was some cool pieces so I took a couple pictures. Was told by the staff I couldn't take pictures. Figure the...
LA huh? I can't believe that Isaia and Etro suit lasted that long there. Stuff gets vacuumed up the moment it rolls out at most stores. If I had it my way I'd bike everywhere. Sadly, living in the suburbs it's tough to bike anywhere but on the bike paths and the local grocery store.
Don't worry man, same thing happened to me. 5 stores yesterday and not a single thing (actually nothing all week). I think the thrift gods were a little intoxicated yesterday and sprinkled the crazy dust a little too heavily in some areas causing them to run out for the rest of us.
That jacket is This thread on the past several pages. Thought I saw a Brioni Vicuna and a couple mind-blowing first posts...
........................what just happened?
I'd suspect 50's to late 60's. Very possible the "69" patch is the graduation year. I agree with cpmac, the label does have a 50's look to it but these companies that made letter sweaters and jackets didn't really re-fresh their labels as often as mainstream labels like Arrow, Gant, and the various department store labels. The "Dry Clean Only" text also has me guessing a little later (late 50's or 60's).
Spoo: That Talbott leather jacket is awesome! Didn't even know they did stuff like that!Oh yeah, definitely a huge trophy find for me.$50k retail, perhaps? Maybe. I forget everything that has passed through my hands though.Very cool! Didn't know they still made stuff like this.+1. I have no problems at all being a middle man. He can make a buck and I can make a buck. Nothing wrong with that. Both him and Italian Suit Warehouse (Mandy Moody) both have flipped off me...
Hmmm, most expensive find? Well I'm not sure what retail was on them when new but they sure sold for way more than anything else I've ever sold ($2,800). I kept them for 5-6 years but honestly didn't hear any difference between these and my Boston Acoustics VR-M60s that I thrifted for $20 and could not justify having $3,000 speakers hanging around when a baby was looming on the horizon.Blast from the past quote from the day I found them.November 2006.
