I thrifted a pair of Red Wings icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

...about two years past their peak popularity. musicboohoo[1].gif

Still I'm sure someone on ebay or whatever will want a nicely made pair of vintage boots.

Here's the Filson shooz, size 11D (available). I put a coat of Obenauf's LP on there to even up some of the scuffs

scuffs on the right side, but otherwise good condition











Here's the Eastland Made in Maine I found a while back... they've become my favorite casual shooz

between those and the Quoddy's I found a while back I've done pretty well with SW&D shoes

Decided to hit up just one store yesterday while apartment hunting and I found these. I looked up Visvim and paint splatter, and a few pairs of theirs with a finish of that sort came up. This pair, however, was not one of them. Let me just say that, shy of the splatter, these are badass boots. Really nice construction and materials throughout.


Visvim Whymper size 10

They really managed to get paint on every surface available... Anyone ever tackle a cleanup of this magnitude?



Goodyear welt sewn to a replaceable vibram sole...



Hardly worn at all, will clean up real nice.




Still can't believe I found these, though I suspect they had just been put out (the tags had yesterday's date on them). There was one other pair of Visvim there, some lightweight shoes, but they were pretty worn. Figured those probably weren't worth it. Also figure they probably aren't there anymore either...

RE yoox and deals (just saw this post) - I've picked up some really good stuff at yoox.  I got a pair of cashmere blend Helmut Lang pants there for $40, and they're my favorite pair of pants.  I've found a few other deals like that there, too, as well as ebay.  I guess if the criteria for this thread is 'under $20' they don't cut it, but don't a lot of the thrifting finds come from consignment shops and not thrift stores?

Hi!  This is actually a cross post from The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread.



I went to a couple of spots and pulled some SW&D.  Everything is tentatively unavailable.  Here are the highlights:




^^^ L-R, T-B:


  • Trovata brown & orange plaid button down collar dress shirt w/ hidden collar buttons.
  • Comme des Garcons Homme Plus lavender & white striped spread collar dress shirt w/ hidden button placket down the front.  < The collar is sooo small.
  • Corpus beige & brown plaid button down collar dress shirt w/ hidden onseam pockets at the hips.  (I picked this up the other day, but included it so I can cross post with the Official SW&D Thrift / Discount Store Bragging thread.)
  • Jil Sander solid white spread collar dress shirt.  (I also picked this up the other day.)
  • Native Son solid white spread collar dress shirt w/ a thick dark horizontal teal stripe across the middle.
  • Wings + Horns solid blue button down collar dress shirt.
  • POLO by Ralph Lauren Italian made 3" wide foulard neck tie.

The other thread was a bit intense, like if you were to post a picture of something not so great and brag worthy, or ask a "dumb" question about something, it seems like Mofos would reach through your monitor and sucker punch you in the nuts. cold[1].gif
