Worth it for 12 it's Maison Blanche? Any help I'm at the thrift now. Also is Balenciaga a good brand?

Two polar opposite finds, both going to @IRKSM.

Apologies for the photo quality, was hoping to use a DSLR from work, but had computer issues.

Rick Owens Vicious Parka SS14

Not true thrift, but underpriced buy/sell:trade. Something like 1.5% of retail. Seriously, who sells this to one of those places for $10-15?!






Norman Hilton 3/2 Navy Hopsack in need of a good pressing from 65 or 67, hard to make out. The construction is incredibly soft.

haha I'm newish to getting suits and don't know the smaller, lesser know quality brands. Just Brioni, Zegna, Kiton, and a couple others. Couldn't find any on ebay either besides one jacket for 80 made by them. Thought that it said made in italy it might be something decent.

$69.99 seems pretty high for AE to resell. For me, I try to triple my investment at the MINIMUM. If they are for yourself, that a great find! If for resale, you can makes decent money, but it's quite a bit to recoup.

Hey @leftofthedial does that Hilton blazer say 59L? Does it really measure that large?

I always grab Bemidji stuff if cheap. Never heard of the other label.

Nah, 39L, but tough to tell from potato pics.

In my rush to post the TF and LP ties last night I did not look close enough at the others I had picked up. One more special.

I think that's a swarovsku crystal.

Only a few pickups yesterday...hit an estate sale that had a bunch of bespoke Edgar Pomeroy suits, but they were over-priced and would be for flipping but not many folks know of old Ed.  They also had tons of kids clothes - all PRL and Lily Pulitzer etc - and half the kids clothes were monogrammed...wtf...

 

One thing from the estate sale - vintage dressing robe / smoking jacket / whatever.

 

 

  

Couple sweaters from the thrift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...then I noticed the LP cotton sweater I picked up last week has a faded area across the middle - argh.  Wonder if i can dye it...
