A quick plug for Rave Fabricare:

I thrifted these filthy peccary gloves in February for a $1. Sent them to Rave about a month ago and got them back yesterday. Definitely isn't cheap, but I've always been blown away by their work.

Highlights of the last couple days. Back from vacation.

 

 

 

 

Womens leather jacket

This is a really cool piece... Can anyone confirm is this is Spencer Hart? The jacket is almost see through and its some sort of weave.

@Fueco or others - Found these in two in different stores. The first is a reversible but I cannot find tags anywhere, not tucked in, hidden, or even remnants where they might have been cut out? Am I missing the secret spot or is this one destined for the re-donate pile?

 


The only other suspect item is how these are sewn. Either a bad repair job, or ?

Next up, Similar to the current Patagonia Downtown Women's Jacket, but the sleeves look a bit different. Legit?

 


Tons o' Tags (which is poly, which is down?)

Thanks all!

Pretty good 2 days. Partridge coat and cruciani sweater NA. look up completeds on the 8 ball Jacket lol. I've been hunting one of those forever. Made me happier than the Brunellos haha.

I am sort of testing a theory involving 2 different "Buying Atmospheres". 1 for workwear, denim, outerwear, etc. 1 for highend sartoria, suits, ties, etc.

 

Also, taxes.

My best thrift find so far (for me) was 5 current J.Crew mainline shirts in my size with no signs of wear.

I need to find better stores.

Good passes, bro. Southwick, IMO, is good for self. Tom James can be, as long as the fabric is nice and it's well cut. But nether are going to sell quickly or for a ton of money.

Working on a Saturday necessitates a thrift break. I took a breif one. I copped shit. This shit.

 

T&A, Gucci, Carroll & CO made in England by Cravats, a surprisingly nice looking Talbott, navy wool Zegna, Brooks Makers

 

Burberry London FF washe navy chinos, Comme Des Garcons Homme black wool slacks

 

Gucci and probably the most tasteful Etro I've ever seen.

 

Total blind thrifting here but fuck it it's the weekend, just saw a nice tailored navy blue velvet blazer that was awesome and made in Engalnd which is my weak spot, pulled the trigger.

 

 

 

Not as blind here. S.Schneiders & Son Harris tweed made in England

 

 

Charcaol gray nailhead BB Fitzgerald w/ Saxxon wool

 

Seemingly brand new Pal Zileri Su Misura

 

Had to pull the trigger on this even though this is tailored made for @SpooPoker auction and I have no clue where to begin with it. Lanvin Black Metallic 100% Silk vest

 

 

And then what looks to be a nearly brand new Belvest suit

 

This is my favorite part though.

 

That is all.

Last weekend, had time to pop into one Goodwill before a family birthday thing at Dave & Buster's (hate that place).  Pickups from last weekend:

 

Pierre Deux pewter cow creamer with base plate (already sold): 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Got these on eBay a couple weeks ago for reasonably cheap - seller said "worn once", I was like "yeah, I've heard that before."  They arrived and are pristine - pleasantly surprised:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

And from today:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

50 cent ties LOL:
