Good pass. I've never seen Incotex ever use that rubber lining waistband grip, they always either have a name for type of model they are (i.e. Chinolino) or the Supers number the wool is, the Portugal tag is totally off, there should be a size tag next to it and they should both be way smaller, and they are damaged on a part that is very visible if not wearing a jacket. Definitely a good pass.

I could be wrong but thats how i understood it.

And how did you understand it in that way? I say two short sentences at the top, neither implying anything except the fact it's all thrift and then I proceed to show pictures of all the thrifted stuff...I'm confused where the implication was..

LA day 3.

Accessories. New Sparco Fireproof made in Italy high straps for me.
Carpincho stringbacks. Also me.
Celine tie
Maui Jim

Helmut, Rugger, GV

One of two Zeg inco linen flat fronts in grey/blue


Oh, and these two.




Also, I was there for the purchase of nearly every item in Jompso's post. obviously higher pricing due to LA being LA, but those were all from thrifts. Including the TFs. Absolutely incredible to see.

u

The implication came from two places,since you asked.i was gonna say ,ok then great haul but since you asked.
First of all you once claimed thrift when in actuality you ebayed it so you were already suspect.but again that was then not now,the reason IM ASKING this time is because cjracers mentioned he paid more then thrift prices I assumed consignment.dont make a bigger deal out of it,I was just asking for clarification.and since its true thrift Im impressed.with consignment brags I always have a problem because to me its shooting fish in a barrel.

Haha, I defnitely see what you mean as concerned to my post of saying it was more.

It's more compared to where I'm from, but then again, that's because suits in Indy are 9.99. Like that Nap Couture up there, I paid 40. Pretty standard LA thrift prices, but seem like a lot compared to Indy where everything costs a stick of gum and a hand shake.

Those pants, so nice.

 

A big shout out to @Koala-T for my christmas gift of squares, one of which went better with the tie I was wearing that day than the square I had, so I swapped them out. Another shout out to @Nataku for an awesome Isaia shirt.  Love this community!!

Because he was with me and he said that he got an item from consignment/resale is exactly why I clarified it was all thrift. These were thrifted, each and every piece. I made a mistake once a long time ago that you mention by letting emotions get the best of me, but I answered for it, apologized, and that's not me anymore and I may be guilty of many things, but being dumb isn't one of them. There's a lot of amazing resale/consignment shops in this city, @Cj52racers will be the first to attest to that. But you won't find any CM in them, no Brioni or TF or anything like that. I've never doubted the authenticity of your thrifts, you get great stuff and it's quite impressive. I deal specifically with clothing, it's my business, and I am able to procure pretty decent clothes a decent amount of the time, because that's what I do, just as you do what you do. I got these items like I do most other goods, persistence and hard work. I respect you for your hustle I would hope a mutual respect could be settled upon. If you have your doubts or whatever, than that is your choice and right. But every word I've spoken is the God's honest truth.
