I sold an Isaia locally last week and it had a broken button. He took it to the only shop here that sells Isaia and they had Isaia send a new one. It was all free. If you have a retailer locally, might try that route.

Impuntura, that polo piece is fucking swag. $$$

Also, I'm apparently blind. Didn't see the Casio on the face of my GA-110, but it is there. Haha, mistaken on all counts.

I believe those are actually shell. Occasionally these are dyed Dark Blue. Awesome score though.

Look back through my posts, I found the exact same one a month or so ago. Not sure how resale is, but they're nice bags for sure.

I have a cotton moto jacket from their Steve McQueen International line. That thing is baller but not waxed and really soft. Now, back to sipping on some Bourbon with Rock Star.

@impuntura I think if you paid less than $50 for that polo leather you'll be in pretty good shape.

I've read through a lot of this thread, but not all of it, and I've learned a decent amount already. So, I decided to try my hand at seeing what I can find in my town. I've gone out a few times over the past few weeks, but haven't really found anything. I'm in Tallahassee, and I just don't see much good quality clothing going to thrift stores (lots of Haggar, Faded Glory, Mossimo, etc). Of course, it could also be that I'm not great at knowing what to look for yet (more likely). However, I think (hope) I found a couple "good" finds:




I actually found this jacket before the discussion about BURBERRY vs 'Burberrys' in this thread from the other day. So, I knew it was pre-1999, but I wasn't aware that it was possibly made outside the UK until that discussion. Prompted by the discussion I dug through the jacket some more, and found a "Made in USA" tag.

Checking online, the only reference to this jacket I could find was on eBay. A beige one marked "rare" sold for $61 a few months ago. And, when I checked a few days ago, a red version was selling for around $110. Don't know if this jacket is actually "rare" or not. But, I now see a few more have popped up on eBay, and are being sold as "vintage". Any help on whether this is a good find or not would be appreciated. In all honesty, I'll likely keep it for myself as it fits (and my gf insists I wear it).

At the same store I also found an Eddie Bauer goose down stuffed jacket. As with the Burberry, I didn't find much online about this jacket. The numbers on the tag kept returning results relating to "long sleeved shirts".

I believe I found a listing or two for what looks like the same jacket on eBay a few days ago. It didn't seem to be selling for any crazy amount. But, I liked it, and it fits somewhat alright (sleeves are a bit short when arms are by my side or extended out).

I did find a pair of Air Jordan II Retro in Red and Black at one store. But, while I was hemming and hawing on whether I should get them to flip them (not my size) someone snagged them. They were in great shape, too. Well, guess it's a learning experience.
I'd appreciate any feedback you could give me on the two jackets I got. Hopefully I'll eventually come across something a bit better than these offerings in the near future. Thanks. 

Welcome to the thread. I would have grabbed the Burberry for a 20 myself. Its probably mid 90s. The Eddie Bauer I would have left, but if its for you to wear, then enjoy.

G-Shock's come in soooooooooo many colors. i don't believe any of us could see them all in the wild. which might be a good thing for Frenchy. -it could be legit.

So, I found some of my clothes have mold on them when I was going through my clothes tonight...Fuck...What do I do to get rid of the mold? I plan on brushing them in sunlight and let them out in the sun. How do I prevent mold from growing on them? Also, does that mean my closet is contaminated and I have to clean it out before I can place clothes back in it? Fuck, ain't this a fucking bitch?!
