The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1463

post #21931 of 51054

It's nice to share the thrill of the hunt with someone. But yeah, in the future, probably smartest just to do that here with you guys :)

I had a buddy in college that I would go thrifting with. We made a pretty good team because he wore a small and I'm a xxl. Plus, he didn't care about ties so that was great. 

 

For now I prefer to not tell people I thrift a lot of my items. They can just figure I'm rich :nodding: This is a solo operation.

Tag-teaming definitely has its advantages. And there is enough goodness to go around.

 

But I'd be lying if I said it didn't sting a little now and then when they find something especially awesome. Only a little though.

I don't have anyone here who's interested in learning. My cousin is a bum and even he refuses to put in the time to learn so whatever. 

 

I have told a couple of other flippers I see at stores about brands they weren't aware of and passed over, though.

Suit jacket or SC? I was leaning towards the former with the 4-button sleeves and pockets but looks at BB site, they have windowpane SCs with 4-button sleeves and V cut bottoms at the buttons...

Lol, I can't imagine people wearing suits with that pattern. If its an orphan, it's still very sportcoatable.

On a related note: A buddy I introduced to thrifting sent me an "Is this real?" text tonight. I got it just as I was walking into a store. Before I could respond, I saw him at the tie rack with an amazing Hermes tie. Beat me by two minutes. Couldn't help but think, "If only I had kept my mouth shut."

Lol, the only person I've taught how to thrift is my wife. I've kept my mouth zipped. This thread has single handedly created tons of flippers including a bunch of good folks, here. The rest of the interwebz don't need my help. :fonz:

My brother told a friend of ours about me thrifting. That night he texts me saying he bought a bunch of stuff and thinks he wasted 20 bucks so he wanted to ask me if he got anything good. He bought a crappy old typewriter and some mugs. I didn't say a word about what to look for. He hasn't asked since. Fine with me!

NICE! My favorite find of the year was a PRL polo coat. In fact, I recently got it back from Rave Fabricare. Two months and $150 later it looks brand new. Going to my folks today to gift it to Poppa Long Legs. That lucky SOB, he's getting the polo coat, a Brioni flannel suit and NWT Berle seersucker pants as early Xmas gifts.

Busy week so didn't get out much. Did score this Zegna jacket. NA for now.

Some good filler for the expanding collection, two more Christmas albums (Raffi Christmas still reigns supreme, though) and a pretty rare Bobby Hutcherson album.

 

I've been out of commission while in Idaho for Thanksgiving. Anyone get their secret santa stuff yet?

post #21939 of 51054
Not thrift, but super, super discounted plus an extra 30% for the Black Friday weekend. Trying to decide whether I can pull this thing off, even though it fits like a glove.

Hand painted Schott G1 bomber in brown cowhide. Made in USA (are all Schotts?). This was part of the Schott pop-in@nordstrom collection.





Also picked up a pair of Incotex cords, pair of Billy Reid chinos, and a few dress shirts for super cheap.

Are these ties a thing? Can't recall seeing many posted here but eBay looks like it?



Also passed on these shoes but was cool to see and a Canadian regiment jacket. Also passed on this Versace. Did I mess up?






post #21941 of 51054

Battistoni uses great fabrics, I have a few.

Would not have passed on that Versace at that price, assuming condition was right.

Everyone back off its mine! But seriously what size is this?
post #21944 of 51054
Thanks everyone for the tips. It's hard to tell as I don't sell and when things don't fit I usually leave them. I need to start trading more but it's tough because only so much space at home. I'll see if it's there when I go back to work Monday but probably gone by all your reactions
