post #20851 of 51365
Hello I've been looking for you.

3x Suzanna Roger, 1x Javier Vilato (Picasso's nephew)



post #20853 of 51365

Friday I hit a store that was apparently having a Hermes easter egg hunt.

 

Found the first one on the 3rd rack of ties, almost the very last tie I had to check.

 

I was happy to have found one, it was the Monkey.

 

Then a few minutes later I saw one hanging behind the and priced at boutique. :angry:

 

But only for $10.....ok. :D

 

I moved to the other side of the store to check the women's, and found a third one hanging with the scarfs and belts. The only tie there. So that was weird.

 

Then I followed the back wall, where they keep some overflow rummage bins, with all sorts of odds and ends. Accessories, toys, stuffed animals etc. I lifted a teddy bear out of the way and then found 3 more within about 10 seconds of each other.

 

Of course I tore the store apart after that, nothing. I even came back by a few hours later to check again, but that was it.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The quality of these Amish ties is unsurpassed.

weird. maybe an employee was stashing em?

 

i understand some thrifts employ a 24-hour rule or some shit where the employees are obligated to allow a certain amount of time on the floor before they cop. but i can't imagine that ever being honored, so... go figure

 

nice haul tho. myself, i'm rooting for the crocodile

This doesnt happen that often to me, but one time I saw these brand new Nike Air Jordans, babyblue, pristine condition sitting under a womens rack. I normally dont buy that type of stuff. They were carefully put in the wrong place, no question about it. So I grabbed them and took them to the front to ask about the price, since there was no tag on the shoes. I get up there and the guy who checked me out was clearly the guy who put the shoes there. He starts giving me shit like "Why you buying those? White people dont wear those! They aint even your size!" So I responded I like the color, paid him, smiled, and left. Anytime I go back to that store I always have a shit eating grin when I see the guy.

Some recent finds, NA unless otherwise noted:

 

Been much choosier when it comes to ties lately, 

 

Saw the red label and thought "fakeagamo", but then I took a closer look and figured that nobody out there is faking 7 folds:

 

 

 

 

Vintage paisley Ricci - not pictured is a similar tie in teal by Brioni.  Both likely hail from the 60s-70s.

 

 

 

One of my favorite polo tie pickups: an indigo linen number with a south american astrological motif:

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Liberty peacock tie, for the pickup artist in all of us:

 

 

 

EZ Silk Linen

 

 

 

 

BB Christmas Tie, available

 

 

 

 

Vintage BB plaid wool:

 

 

 

 

Vintage BB cranberry linen knit:

 

 

 

My fuhsaciest fuhsace yet:

 


 

Warning: Sace! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

And last but not least some VV Mermaid $$$

 

 

 

And a lone coach belt to round out the accessories: 

 

 

 

Shirts:

 

Sturdyass USA made PRL Tee

 

 

 

2x VV Wyeth buttondowns, L

Red candystripe:

 

 

Purple gingham:

 

 

And a pair of summery Mastai Ferretti shirts in my size.  Pretty nice, slim fit and MOPS.  Brand seems like a med tier european maker with pretty high retail on yoox and the like.

Cotton dash-stripe spread collar:

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

And 99% cotton 1% lycra seersucker in a brown and white stripe

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

A band of outsiders (pop) buttondown in a close-set red stripe, L.  Watched Master of None recently and Ansari- whose wardrobe throughout is pretty stellar, if a bit trendy- apparently is a big BoO fan.  I guess band closed down pretty recently; their stuff always a bit too fashion forward for my tastes.  The shirt has a tall skinny fit and doesn't really work for me so available.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

And to round things out a pretty cool militaria find: a german or dutch snap cpo shirt.  Perfectly worn in and cut really slim - so much so that I thought it was a repro of some kind at first.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Pants:

 

Patagonia nylon blend shells.  My size, but they have that unfortunate pseudo bootcut so common in outdoor gear.  Is tailoring a fool's errand on pants like these?

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

2x pairs of flannel trousers from a now defunct local mens store.  Wool flannel with a pretty contemporary fit, but the leather wrapped side adjustors sealed the deal

 

Grey:

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Tan:

 

 

 

Only one sweater of note recently, the racks are getting hit hard now that temperatures have started to drop in earnest.

Gran sasso black merino V:

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Lightweight USA made fleece that I bought entirely for the fierce eagle head on chest.  Just look at that magnificent bastard:

 

 

 

 

 

And a pop (well, plus the pants, which were found later) that I really really like.  An old school retro x Patagonia vest, made in the states.  The natural colored fleece gives it a faux shearling look worn under a jacket.

 

 

 

 

Tailoring

 

Kick things off with a half lined silk pow check BB sportcoat.  48XL, available

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Kick things up a bit with hands down the nicest Hickey Freeman I've ever handled.  Beautiful details and lining.  60/40 cashmere silk fabric.  40L, available - I'd keep it if the sleeves were shorter.

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Followed by the second nicest Hickey Freeman I've ever handled, this time a suit.

Peak lapels, blue/black micro herringbone with an overcheck, 46R and available.

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now things get a bit weird.

A pretty anonymous jacket.  No "made in" tag.

 

 

Oh!  fun pockets.

 

 

The thrift gods way of keeping us on a swivel.  Fits like a 40-42, available.

 

 

And for myself, a black moleskine field jacket from Nice Collective.  Didn't know much about the brand previously but apparently they're a pretty small scale operation in California.  Quality seems high, made in the USA, and it's got some excellent details.  Apparently should have a hood of some kind, but no sign of that.

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

And now for the realness:

 

Some perfect staple suit comeups recently.  Wish they both fit but one out of two ain't bad.

 

Gianluca Isaia Napoli (pop!) gray suit in super 150s wool.  Double vents, double pleats.  Roomy 40R

 

 

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Been had black label navy wool suit (presumably by caruso)!  Razor sharp and fits me like a glove (although it has some light shoulder padding that I'm considering getting removed).

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

A POP on Crockett and Jones straight up (I've found their RL stuff before).  Chelseas, 11.5.

 

 

 

 

 

And now, via ethrift, today's real stunner

Some Needles from the baystack:

 

 

Black deerskin suede, shawl collar, bellows pockets, NWT, made in USA... are all keywords that the seller forgot to use.  Well under the 10% rule.  :slayer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thrift well, my friends.

At double 00, our Goodwill guys miss the Hermes, but hide all the 80s Polo stuff in the women's section. Sometimes it's worth the odd looks, other times, not so much.

post #20863 of 51365
