Popped one of these in my size for $25 Friday night before going out drinking / etc. Pretty good Birthday!
As a somewhat of a rookie to the world of thrifting, I have spent a great deal of my holidays reading old posts from this thread and getting even more addicted to the world of it. Here´s some findings from the last month or so that make me super happy.
The Canali looks kind of suspect but I´m pretty sure the Hermes is legit.
Found a Barbour beaufort jacket in a really good condition for six euros and gave it to my dad for christmas. I found this hat yesterday for two euros, gonna surprise my dad with it. He really likes bucket hats, much to the dismay of my mom.
Yeah real familiar with him.
Actually a famous tailor, this guys brother

It's big but not giant. Size approx. XL. I'm 6' 1", 185# and it fits me in the sleeves, and is about 7" from the floor when I wear it so it's relatively long. Shoulders are a tad big on me, but not like it's a fitted garment. Came from the rich people estate sale and has some bits of damage but I didn't care. No tags anywhere, I'd assume silk and probably MTO given the other bespoke stuff they had. Available if anyone's gotta have it.
WTF. I just moved my vintage Kenwood receiver from one room to another, hooked up the speakers & turntable and now have a loud hum outta one channel. I guess I hosed that receiver. I even tried fixing it (e.g.: I smacked it). So in the last week or two - turntable hosed, receiver hosed, vinyl hosed.
