This thing seems like the good kind of Armani (is Emporio Armani made in Italy always good?). Under $10, slightly too small for myself, though.

I bought two pairs of boots for your appreciation. Neither of them have any variety of markings to indicate who made them. The first pair looks like cross-country ski boots except that I really don't think it is. Hand made. The sole looks pegged together with bits of wood, as far as I can tell, except for the stacked leather heels which are nailed. They fit about 11.5" long x 4" wide at the ball of the foot.

This pair....wow. I don't even know where to begin. Narrow at the ankle, laced all the way up the calf, and capable of accommodating quite a large calf even though the foot is pretty small.  The sole looks hand-sewn, except for the stacked leather heels which are nailed. They fit about 11" long x 4" wide at the ball of the foot.

These are available, but only after I learn as much as I can about them. Because they are so dang cool.

Terrible potato teaser. Not true thrift, but insanely underpriced buy/sell/trade.

This is better for the ebay thread, not this one. But if your having issues selling them it's your pictures most likely.

I've passed on Ted Baker shirts that weren't as garish as the Paul & Shark above because I couldn't see myself in them.  Then along comes this one.  Nice simple blue stripe with MOP buttons.  AND I think there are several SFers that would appreciate what closed the deal for me ...

Ted Baker stuff seems decent. Yesterday, I picked up a sport coat complete with ticket pocket and working cuff buttons. I'm still not tempted to wear it.

Had the day off but only managed to hit a few stores in the morning. Mostly fodder, but did pick this up. All leather jackets were supposed to be $35. The lady at the register says, "I don't consider this leather. This is suede. How about $15?" Who am I to argue with her logic?

post #25720 of 51165
Upon closer inspection the MOP buttons were not broken but some were cracking so I left the Paul and Shark shirt. I really disliked the pattern too.

Nothing much else today worth posting. There was half a dozen of these unvented cashmere blend Zegnas I left. The patterns were actually pretty nice but they were clearly dated.
Also some random neat sweater with wood buttons. Didn't like the fit

Especially now that they're a subsidiary of Panasonic...who have made some pretty good nose hair trimmers recently, but not much else.

Do you flip or do you thrift purely for yourself?

Love that comic! lol8[1].gif

Actually, they've always been a subsidiary of Panasonic. Panasonic developed the brand specifically for their hi-fi products and the early stuff was badged "Technics by Panasonic".
