Sounds exactly like my day!

 

Except I only found 4 pieces. :fu:

 

And none were really "thriftening" worthy.  

 

but I'm excited to see what you got! :lurk:

Almost all the time haha. I also think Church's had "paris, new york, london, milan" on their shoes at one point. At least I think I thrifted a pair that did a couple of years ago.

The perception I had, and I may be incorrect, is that "Milan" got added after Prada (who are, after all, da Milano) bought them.

Chicago rockers...sad day that The Alley is closing.  When I moved there in the early 90's it was one of the first shops I hit, and bought a leather double rider...because living in Chicago and going to EXIT, Metro, Empty Bottle, Double Door, The Riv, Hungry Brain, Club Foot, Holiday etc...you had to have a leather jacket.  Bought several pairs of Doc's there as well - one pair I still have - leopard creepers that have been to shows in several countries.  Bummer.  Shit's probably on clearance tho - so - stock up!

In before Spoo

 

Kicking Mule

nwt hf only non thrift store find

post #26862 of 50998

Oooh on that Davies and Son. Some things that are less stellar. Thrifted this a while back and wore it once, but it fits way too large, and I really felt like I was insulting Magnum.

 

 

Big Tod's

 

 

Yo Nak Daddy, I don't think these are the goods, but posting anyway. Rothco Ultra Force BDU

 

 

 

Red Wing, 8.5 I think

 

 

Bought these at a very overpriced "thrift" store, but half off shoes day

 

 

NOS Spooner Dodgers

 

 

Zimmerli, long sleeve, any fans of this stuff? Bought for self but sleeves just a bit short enough to make it annoying.

 

 

H&H

 

 

Nike Free for me

 

 

Helmut Lang, ~34x30

 

 

 

Nike Japan and LA eyeworks

 

 

And a cry for help: what would I wear with this?

 

 

Maybe some Versace? Or Faux Versace, whatever the case may be... high quality tho, and first time picking up a black shirt or Versace.

That place really has no business referring to itself as a thrift store. Any place that charges $65 for Allen Edmonds, regardless how good of condition they are in, is not a thrift store..

Can anyone tell me if this is real?
post #26865 of 50998

Hey everyone, went out today in a new area. Didn't come home with a ton but found a couple things that seemed to be quality. First is a very nice Canali 2 pc. suit. Great color, great condition, unfortunately not my size. Next, I found this cool coat. It is a blend of wool, nylon and cashmere. Feels very soft and nice, also in great condition. No indication of maker other than the fabric tag and is made in Bulgaria. It's a nice dark green color. I'm assuming it's nothing groundbreaking but was half off and pretty cool. If anyone can fill me in a bit on the tag of the coat that would be cool. Otherwise, carry on! P.S. Sorry for the crap pictures, don't have the space here for a proper setup.
