I like the pants photo setup. Speaking of, I have about 300 pairs in my backlog and hate to do effing pants baldy[1].gif

Speaking of Anoraks, here's one on eBay (not mine) that someone should pick up: http://www.ebay.com/itm/h-M-reversible-pullover-red-black-MAURITZ-archive-collection-sz-medium-rc-/331721423681

Waxed canvas, from the Mauritz Archive Collection... the original "M" store from H&M. Hunting/outdoor/mountainwear style.

I thrifted one a while ago and love it. Nice waxed canvas, good colors, "produced in partnership with distinguished British textile mills." I'd buy this one too, but probably don't need more jackets...

Edit: Mine is actually a small, and this a medium, so I can safely pass this up. But that means this Medium probably fits more like a Large, FYI.

File this under things I never thought I'd thrift... Outdoor Research GoreTex overboots.

And @Bpk1 the suitjacket fits great and hopefully the pants with some tailoring. Thank you thriftmaser!

Ah great! Wanted to get you a suit, since you mentioned that you needed/wanted one in your Thriftmas post. Tried to get as close as I could in terms of measurements. Hope you like the cotton/silk squares, and ties too!

Some sh00z.

 

Alfred Sargent / Brooks bros. 11D. One of the toe caps has some popped stitches, are these fixable? (If not, oh well-they were ten bucks)

Yes hopefully I can tailor the pants to fit me, but I would say the suitjacket is wearable with other suitpants so Im happy either way(cuz it fits perfectly). Yes and I love that square with the flowers or whatever it is, its awesome. Sadly I was slapped with a nice 86$ customs fee..

I have never went to a thrift store prior to earlier this week.  Basically I was just seeing what type / quality my local shop would carry.  Not much of interest, but I did find a pair of pants and a jacket I liked and got those, but passed on several things that didn't fit.  I did try on a few of the "zanella" pants on and passed on a few things like canali etc.  Do you guys buy stuff that don't fit and sell / trade them?  The canali stuff still had the tags on them, but there where marked up to $12.99 instead of the normal $6.99.

Confused...is this line of out wear for a man or for a woman?

Yep, it's how some people make a living, but a lot of us just do it for fun/expand wardrobe/thrill of the hunt/extra money on the side. Depending on the size of the Canali items people would be flooding your PM mailbox. (myself included)

You're confused ?
What about Bruce ?

My cat was on one of her early AM freak-out runs around the house when she pounced on my mannequin. Poor guy never saw it coming. Shattered the area where the pole connects. I would probably have been upset if it wasn't one of the funniest fucking things that I have ever witnessed. Oh well, just ordered another one. Inanimate objects are easy to replace. Hilarious moments from our four-legged friends are priceless!

@saxcolossusjr @DanM -Sorry, haven't checked in here for a few days. I'm in Cleveland.
 

 

 

 

 

These seemed worth picking up… Not very familiar with Grenson though, they seem to be of pretty nice quality.

My pug had eye surgery yesterday, so the have sown both his eyes pretty much totally shut and pumped him full of morphine. Its ofcourse kinda sad, but at the same time so very funny, hes a blind junky, stumbling around the apartment making a mess.

Grenson recently outsourced their production to India, and while the shoes are still quite nice, the older English-made ones are better. Great shoes at any rate, I have a couple similar pairs of loafers from them.
