The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1190post #17836 of 5746710/23/15 at 3:08pmThrifted a nice pair of blue suede/brown leather Sperry loafers in my size today for $12. Something nobody here would care about, but as a High Schooler I get good wear out my casual shoes. Searching all over eBay to see if I can somehow come across a pair of Nike Flyknits for $50 or less. Uncommon, but I've seen them sell for less. Any more and I can't justify the purchase as much as I'd like them.post #17837 of 5746710/23/15 at 3:10pmQuote:
Whatever you thrift for yourself is brag-worthy, imo. They're some of the best casual shoes you can get!post #17838 of 5746710/23/15 at 3:16pmpost #17839 of 5746710/23/15 at 3:52pmpost #17840 of 5746710/23/15 at 4:06pm
Some serious finds in the last few dozen pages - a 10 dollar atmos clock and Spoo finding the world's Best Vest? Unreal. I've been busy of late and trying to gear myself more towards selling than buying, but the habit is hard to kick. Popped into my local places, telling myself I'd just "see what's the on the racks", and then came to a blurry couple of hours later in my car with a passengers seat full of grail outerwear. Hell of a drug.
I'd prefer to hold onto most things for personal use or sale, but if something really strikes a chord shoot me a pm (excepting the last item).
A custom bottle-green velvet dinner jacket, commissioned from an upscale local mens haberdasher, now defunct. Very old, but a pretty wicked party jacket that fits me like a velvet glove. Probably going to wear it with a white shirt, black knit tie, and white square this new years. Begging to have a martini spilled on it.
Warning: Draped in Velvet! (Click to show)
A very handsome autumnal tweed from everyone's favorite trad clothier, J. Press. And this is no ordinary tweed...
Featuring a springy, soft donegal mist tweed by Magee in cashmere, mohair, and wool. Nicest hand of any tweed I've felt. Roomy 40L.
This is the after. Vintage Bean goatskin A2 with all the right deets - mouton collar, scovill zipper, and just the right amount of wear and tear. Patinated to perfection.
42, fits me in a nice, slouchy way. Torn between keeping this, or...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This. The before. Spiewak golden fleece flight jacket, made in the states. Lined, seems like it might be brand spanking new. Fits me well and is crazy warm, but I feel a bit like a cop when I wear it.

Finally found a proper oldschool Burberry(s) trench! In great shape (like, possibly unworn? no wear on leather buckles anyhow) and at thrift prices no less. Never thought it would happen.
All the great old military details one could ask for - d-rings, sleeve adjusters, collar latch. 44R but its a perfect bogart fit on me over a suit or jacket. Not available.
Warning: Nova! (Click to show)
But you know what? All of the above are ultimately pretty run of the mill. If you thrift often enough in my region you'll see burberry trenches, J press tweed, and flight jackets. These are classic items, part of the fabric of a local culture that has existed for decades. Exciting and valuable, yes, but not surprising. But this next piece is something you don't see around here, something that surprised the hell out of me:
A grail pop for me. And that label belongs to:
My size! Probably my favorite ever find. I've admired engineered garments and the japanese streetwear movement that it helped to usher in but I've never had the means to justify buying it, even at sale or resale (doubt I'm alone there) with the exception of a jacquard tunic(!) that I haven't had the balls to wear except around my apartment.
Midweight cotton canvas, incredible details and construction. Cinches and pockets everywhere. Very representative of the EG aesthetic (ivy league educated post apocalyptic mercenary?). Wearing it as I'm typing this. No plans to remove it.
That's it - apologies to those who've been waiting on pms that I just got around to answering. Let's keep the thread burning, shall we?post #17841 of 5746710/23/15 at 4:06pmpost #17842 of 5746710/23/15 at 4:10pmpost #17843 of 5746710/23/15 at 4:44pmpost #17844 of 5746710/23/15 at 4:56pmpost #17845 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:25pmpost #17846 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by Deedz
I had a pretty good day yesterday so I figured i'd throw up some pics and a little background. I have been hitting some of the same thrifts lately and have been pretty much striking out so I decided to hit some brand new ones on a different side of town and see what I could find.
A few stops in I started finding some stuff to pull the trigger on. I have been wanting an unstructured sports coat so I was pretty excited when I found this.
Overall a pretty good day. I'm still just crossing my fingers I can find the pants to the Kiton.
Good luck finding the pants, great post!
Not sure where my post will end up...
OUTSTANDING colors! Nice, man!
Day started w/ Alden and Mezlan, ended with Kiton and Brioni. I wish it was as nice as it sounds. Not a bad day overall:
Mezlan and Alden
J. Press, 2x Burb
This thing!! Hope it runs bigger than tagged.
Made in Italy = LVC?
NOS Paradise made in Hawaii
This Wrangler USA with all the right keywords
This Adidas with all the right keywords
First for me 2x, have to figure out why these are a thing.
Bri linen is outstanding, the kiton is super lux feeling. Nice to find this stuff in great condition.
Isaia x Star Trek
Did not wear around the store.post #17847 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:37pmpost #17848 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:48pmpost #17849 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:52pmpost #17850 of 5746710/23/15 at 5:53pm
