The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1283

Love the patina on this one

 

 

Harry's of London, made in Italy, suede, almost new, apologies for the lousy image

 

 

Carroll & Co shirt by Bruli, so soft, so wish it were L not M

 

 

Thrift fit. Cashmere. I'm normally M or L, this is tagged XXL, and it has a few issues. I'm calling it good enough.

Hit up Edmonton on Friday since I was up there to catch the Night Vale tour. It was pretty picked over, as to be expected the day before Halloween, but still got a few solid base hits and one grand slam home run.

 

 

 

Club Monaco liner vest, XL

Nakamichi jacket for the cassette fiends, XL

 

 

Leslie Skeet Tree-O

 

 

Navy Been Had blouson for me

 

 

some vintage tees and sweats

 

 

left this behind, but I'm just having trouble deciding whether it's a reference to improv comedy or the ending of Ulysses

 

 

Smalto pop (sort of since it's not tailoring)

ID help on this guy? It was $45, so I didn't pick it up:

 

 

 

 

But I did pick this one up:

 

 

By T. Hillier Fowler. Looked cool -- prices aren't that great, it turns out.

So, anyone got a good app to keep track of all the shit you buy? I recon a ordinary doc could work but if there's anything more effective I would like to know, cuz I have NO idea of how much I spend etc at the moment......

I've been meaning to post this but always forget. If you have a few minutes, read this brilliant short story about thrifting (and other things) called 'Parson's Pleasure' by Roald Dahl.

 

Furniture dealer in London discovers there's some untapped gold in old countryside farms and villages. As Buzzfeed would say, you won't believe what happens next!!

‘Look here’, he said. ‘If there is good stuff in one farmhouse, then why not in others?’ Why shouldn't he search for it? Why shouldn't he comb the countryside? He could do it on Sundays. In that way, it wouldn't interfere with his work at all. He never knew what to do with his Sundays.

 

So Mr Boggis bought maps, large scale maps of all the coun­ties around London, and with a fine pen he divided each of them up into a series of squares. Each of these squares covered an actual area of five miles by five, which was about as much territory, he estimated as he could cope with on a single Sunday, were he to comb it thoroughly. He didn't want the towns and the villages. It was the comparatively isolated places, the large farm­houses and the rather dilapidated country mansions, that he was looking for and in this way, if he did one square each Sunday, fifty‑two squares a year, he would gradually cover every farm and every country house in the home counties.

 

I'm sure you can relate. :D

No, look closer. You see those creases? Shell doesn't crease, it just forms waves.

(Literally didn't even catch the wave pun until I typed it out)

 

 

 

 

Quick lunch stop produced some flannel wool PRL and BB pants, US Made BB Tie, rando shoe trees, and an older Kuppenheimer plaid flannel lined trench coat.

 

The cooler news of the day is that when I get home this evening I get to do some moving around my apartment. I am giving up my big walk in closet, but in exchange my fiancé agreed that if she got to use it that I could have the entire spare bedroom we have to use as a closet and work spot for online listings. Looking forward to having a dedicated space to use and stepping up that game a bit.

 

 

Speaking of stepping up the game, @SpooPoker, holy hell. Awesome news man. Look forward to some of the changes. Good luck in it all.

Could be authentic. Can't really say as the shell here is covered with tar and seaweed.

Quite possibly 11. Will check tonight and PM if so. And big congrats to Spoo! O that feeling whence a mortal realizes they might get a chance to stroke the vest.
