Who will win....

Hehe, I have merely laid the groundwork by meeting the minimum requirement. Now I have 2 weeks to improve my submission. In search of dodeca-pleated Zanellas now.

i'm with spoo. especially for the first, the goal should be universal, not just coastal, participation. that Wes finished is proof of nothing more than it can be completed, which is an essential proof of concept element. remember that the ultimate winner will be judged on quality of finds, not just finishing, and the thicker the competition, the truer that differentiator rings.
if future challenge makers want to add exotics, it will mean many folks dont finish suggest they add them as some kind of tiebreaker, but of course, that is up to them.
this is a fantastic idea, spoo, thans for organizing and i know how much work it is going to be. i shall participate if i can.

The Harris Tweed was the very last piece I found. I was pretty worried about that one actually. I had already bought up all the few I have seen lately, hoarding for the fall.

I hate thrift shops. But I want that tie.

 

I.. want.. that.. tie.

 

Is this the first one? Kind of a cool idea.

Yes, this is Spoo's drunken idea and we are in round 1.

Hey Spoo/all - 

 

You're giving away a good tie as the prize. What happens to the winner? Does the winner send something of equal value to the next winner? Kind of like a swap-box or something?

Strangely, it's been awhile since I've seen some Zanellas, but I love the extra daps given for 2+ pleats. I wonder if they ever made curtain pleats on pants??

I so wanted to participate in this challenge, seeing that I frequently thrift on lunches as weekends.

But my last few weeks, and those ahead, I will be Thrifting at a minimum. I just closed on my new house today! And now the fun of packing, moving, and unpacking begins!!

Best of luck gentlemen, I will still be following the thread!

Totally not necessary to give a prize for following rounds. Thats up to the next host. Its really just for bragging rights.

I have the zebra print category on lock, but these Zanellas and the bootleg designer stuff are gonna kill me. Only ever seen one pair of Zanellas, unbelievable as that sounds. Will be hitting a couple stores up today, the hunt continues!

Troops, how are you doing in the field?

Send in some updates on how many you've got so far.

Upped the ante on the number of Zanella pleats.
post #59 of 903

I'm 6/10, w/ the bonus selfie.  Hopefully, I'll finish tomorrow morning.

Found three Harris Tweed pieces before anything else, and I'm in AZ. Hah.

 

Was it already asked, what if more than one.. or two or three people get them all?

 

2. One Christian Dior Monsieur piece < Impossibru!
7. One fake/knockoff or otherwise inspired Versace/Chanel/Hermes print item - scarf, shirt, etc. < One with just a bunch of stupid labels printed all over it, right?
8. One pair of Zanella pants with at least 2 pleats (bonus points for more pleats) < Is there anything special about Zanella? I can't find any at all. They just rare?
9. One item still bearing tags (NWT item with a thrift price on it) < I found one from like the eighties with a tag still on it. Shit you not.
