The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1686

post #25276 of 51058

Apparently I just wanted to troll through women's clothes today. Men's stuff available. Women's is, too, but this isn't the place for it I'm sure!

 

Spiewak Golden Fleece naval peacoat. Size 42.

 

 

Tom James Filo-a-Mano holland & sherry patch pocket sc. Probably a 44-46

 

 

And now the women's shit:

 

Some newish Ferragamo's. 

 

 

Lilly fodder. 

 

 

Mainline Armani sweater set.

 

 

St. John knit stuffs.

 

 

Fendi leather skirt suit? 

 

 

 

Akris angora/wool blend jacket.

 

 

 

I wish my day had been filled with dope mens shit instead!

Yeah gorge is a little low, but within acceptable range for me, especially since it is a perfect fit otherwise. Side note: it has some of that stiffness that comes with vintage suits that might have been cleaned a few too many times. Any advice on how to get some of the softness back?

Too much dry cleaning and those chemicals dehydrate the protein fibers causing that stiffness. Moisture (not wet) and wear will rehydrate them and make them more pliable.

I went to a Garbage concert at Hammerstein Ballroom (formerly Roseland) back in the 90s and saw them. I was very near the front, and when Shirley Manson started into "Only Happy when it Rains", she stage dove, landed on me, and I grabbed her ass. Was awesome.

I thrifted the same exact jacket with the same exact tags. Haven't listed it yet but I believe its real.

Can someone here please help me translate Japanese?  Specifically, I'd like to know the size and material of this jacket but any other pertinent info would be great.  Thanks!  Who's into Japanese SW&D?

Trying this one more time. Scovill zips. Wasted $15?


You're on the right track. Alpha is a great manufacturer and due to the fact that they make their military-grade stuff available to the civilian market as well, they have a good following. M65 jacket, correct? Should be an easy $40-$50.

M65 yes. Thank you. One day I will thrift Napoleons uniform to make up for all my shitty Military pieces I've found thus far.

So I ended up walking past a thrift store while wandering around Las Vegas so I popped in. Nothing great but I picked up three pairs of pants. None of them fit so they are all available.

Not bad for your second post though.
