Wrong thread, I know, but does anyone have a spare one of these buttons to sell me to repair a thrifted jacket?

To whoever got me for the gift exchange (Click to show)

Like most here, I'll appreciate anything I get really.

 

If you are in the hunt for me though I lean more towards the SWD/Workwear side. 

 

I'm currently searching for some casual belts(36) that work with chinos and denim. Some good chinos or denim for said belt as well...

Cheap beater watches or boots/casual shoes are on my radar too.

 

If you can't find anything I'd love for some of your local stuff. (coffee booze knick knacks etc.)

 

Cheers.

No, it's not thrifting unless you're walking, taking the bus, or riding your bike! :deadhorse:

If you call Brooks Brothers customer service or go by a store, they will give you replacements for free.

no its a 50th that's the one you want. There very hard to come by I haven't seen one for sale since I got mine about three years ago. (And I paid up for it online) as I had to fight over it. There desirable good find.


Nice! Any chance you can snap a picture of yours?

Who thrifts in Raleigh? Got out for the first time in several months now that my semester is on and was sorely dissapointed. I figured I'd have several duds making the rounds for the first time, but I hit eight stores and my best find was a tweed Gieves & Hawkes. Didn't get to all of the Raleigh area, only had time for central + NE Raleigh today, but damn. I make the full rounds in my little mountain town and come back with at least 1 bread/butter piece and a tie on a poor day. 

I used to go out every day and hit 2-3 stores but now I'm only hitting stores opportunistically. That is, if I have to go by for another reason.

 

We are in an area where there is only one store in a hundred mile radius that sells Kiton. I think 2 stores sell Aldens. Most of the grail brands I had never seen unitl I started shopping out of town in 2012.

 

I think I went 3 months without buying anything until I found a 3 piece BB Lardini suit. There just isn't a ton of accumulated quality items hitting stores. I don't remember buying a tie here since March.

 

We have a group of African guys who hit the stores for shoes. Morning and afternoon. I see one them practically everytime I am out. Then there are about a dozen regular faces combing the menswear. Plus, they staff down the goodwills at 5 and they only have 2 people working, so if they're busy, they don't have time to put anything else out.

 

That said, there are a couple of church thrifts near country clubs that have a ton of transplants. They get some good stuff, but it goes quickly if it makes it to the floor at all. Many of the retirees who work there are from New York and they know a Kiton when they see it and they pull those to sell on-line. 

 

I travel a lot in my job and most of my backlog is from DC area stores. Some from Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, San Jose. No where here is going to match the 7000 items per day that a big Savers in DC is putting out.

 

But you can find really nice things here. If you're doing it full time and hitting 10-15 stores a day, you'll find it. If you're going after work and you find something, its because they just put it out or someone else missed it. Buts its all about timing.

 

Now that I think of it, this isn't so different from other mid-market cities.
