My find of the year....

 

Original Post

 

Picked up this artwork today, mainly because I thought it was ridiculous.

 

Turns out it is a fairly highly sought after print of a controversial civil rights drawing, done in 1968.

After a couple months of waiting.....

So I bought the whole store.

90% of it was blind, I asked for a few examples of what they had, but I was rolling the dice on at least 80% of it, if not more. Since I had the Uhaul this weekend from moving into the LuxeSwap store, I thought it was the perfect time to complete the transaction.

So I got some cash and hauled away such :

started with 6 full extended rolling racks


but there were another 7 rolling racks so i needed to improvise - aka, ball it up and chuck it in


when that got to max capacity, i needed to move into the front seat


don't let how it got in there fool you - at least 80% of it is prime stuff. its probably going to take me a few weeks to go through and sort but on first glance I saw :

10 Kiton cashmere SC's, some NWT
1 Sulka bearcat alpaca coat
150 Zegna suits and jackets
40 Brioni jackets and suits
35 BB suits and jackets
50 Brioni and Brunello Cucinelli pants
100 Zanella, RLPL and Incotex pants

theres probably a shitload more I'm missing as in total its all about 800 pieces or so. I actually scored this for well below thrift pricing because i took it all sight unseen. Net Net everything came out to about 8-10 dollars a unit, if my math was right. One of the best scores of my career, no question. Time for a fucking bottle of wine!

**I have no idea what sizes etc this stuff is and its going to take me forever to organize so please hold off on any PMs for now, you'll see it all soon I promise!

The only way to beat what just happened up there is if someone thrifts an actual live vicuña
