post #27631 of 50974
@Nataku, what am I looking at?

post #27632 of 50974
So these Prps have the worst damage but for $4 and a 10 day return window I'd rather grab them and research.

Not selvedge neil barrett made in Italy also had a hole but same price

Robins jeans are in pretty good condition

Gilded age selvedge in good shape I think $4

Helmut Lang selvedge $4 fade line where they were rolled but I'm the same height so not an issue

Ermenegildo Zegna jeans $4

Rag and bone I paid $12 for but they look great on me

True religion for $8

And this stuff I got recently but not yesterday
True religion $8

Apc for$7

Rlbl for $5


So I think I'm doing alright but I just started hitting jeans racks more so I'm a little green

You bet. Even if there not super valuable there super cool just remember that. Things like that don't grow on trees nowadays and are becoming harder to find as there being bought up and used again bringing that market even tighter for these items. If they were mine I'd sit on them for awhile. Just stow them away and forget about them for 20 years. You should pick this up its a good read and very helpfull. It goes farther the 60s more like 1990s.

If the 2nd one is woven silk; as I suspect it is, you're good. If it's printed, then it's super fake.

I'm going to post more photos later but I'm super excited to find these.

Great grab on these, though in comparison to the mainstream brands they wont bring as much. That being said; you will still get a pretty penny. I'd be interested, but I dont need to pick anymore jeans up right now, let alone jeans for the archive.

I haven't posted some thrifts in awhile. Here's some recent stuff. Mostly NA

 

Heebee jeans, made in San Francisco.

 

 

 

These huge vintage scarves/shawls were way too cool to leave behind. Look at that embroidery work, love it.

 

 

 

This one is huge, shown folded.

 

 

 

Anybody help translate?

 

 

Pringle

 

 

Zegna wool/cashmere

 

 

 

Records

 

 

My favorite of the records. Brand new with graphics printed on the vinyl.

 

 

Shoes that surprisingly fit me. Cheap-ish corrected grain leather,

but goodyear welted by Alfred Sargent. I'll take that for cheap.

 

 

 

BB Golden Fleece by Martin Greenfield

 

 

 

 

 

Oxxford blue flannel suit

 

 

 

Lots of yellow lately

 

 

Rack finds at thrift prices

Maybe they just weren't made real well?

Prolly just my old ass eyes lol. I saw the chainstitch but the indigo thread threw me...

Imo dead stock really means "as new with tags" I've got a pair of time travel bellbottoms with flasher basting and no flasher and so I can't consider them deadstock.

In any case a nice find.

Great finds!

Splitting hairs, but not printing on top, which would make them hard to play.

Anyone recognize this women's label?

Bought to flip, but when I came to listing on ebay tonight, I had second thoughts.
I've very nice indeed, and might get a place in my wardrobe.

that mercedes scarf is awesome.
post #27644 of 50974

Been trying to focus more on selling than buying (and the thrifts have been pretty slow of late), but the siren song of potential grails never ceases.  To whit, some recent finds:

 

Available unless otherwise noted.

 

Tienucopia:

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Brioni, Hermes beer tab and watermelon, gamo, T Pink made in England x 3, Zegna greyhound motif

NWT Zegna Couture, Ben Silver, Rubinnaci, Borrelli 7 fold, Jay Kos cotton knit, Liberty Shetland

 

 

 

Keepers:

 

 

More accessories (NA):

 

 

e-thrifted Mark Cross unlined "mocha" suede gloves.  Fit unfelt with gloves is always a gamble, but these fit me wonderfully.  Also pictured:  Barbour tartan lambswool, 3x MIUSA coach belts (lizard, english calf, and an oxblood calf traded from @aging in rhythm -  thanks man!) and...

 

 

...a pair of OG Giorgio Armani Tortoise eyeglass frames.  Real classic.  Might hold onto these until I find myself in need of frames.  I'm 20/20 for now but who knows.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

And a couple of big-ass silk scarves to round things out (pen for scale):

 

Chipp:

Brioni, in wu-tang colors (NA):

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Style-wise I've come a long way from high school (I basically lived in element graphic tees and jeans), but lately i've found myself combing the t shirt section with a bit more care than usual and finding some pretty cool stuff.  All for personal use, and thus NA.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Marc Jacobs MIUSA Chinese new year graphic

 

 

The Hundreds MIUSA "clash of the cryptids".  Bigfoot vs. the Lochness Monster.  So good.

 

 

Adventure Time x Where the Wild Things Are?  Yes.

 

 

Nirvana reissue.

 

 

got a chuckle out of the back.  Apparently the original (presumably states-made) version of this shirt is worth its weight in gold (like most original nirvana tees)

 

 

Favorite of the bunch:

 

Pop!

 

 

 

Fodder

 

 

Shirts:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Gorgeous LP tattersall buttondown.  My size, nicest buttons I've ever seen.  NA.

 

 

Pop on Steven Alan linen band collar, mop buttons MIUSA, NA

 

 

Pop on Charvet, steel gray dress shirt

 

 

Indigo woven cotton PRL for myself.  Great texture.

 

 

Yellow Linen Rubinacci sport shirt

 

 

Moar shirts:  Barbour tartan x 3, all medium

 

 

 

 

Some stellar knitwear finds recently (not available):

 

 

Check out those textures!  San Cristobal handmade in Peru alpaca/wool with serious yeezy FW 16 vibes, Our Legacy (pop!) reverse terry sweatshirt, and a minty J press gray shaggy dog

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

70% alpaca, 30% wool- seriously incredible fabric on this one; an army green base shot through with vibrant wisps of pink.

 

 

 

 

Dick Whitman award for subtlety in branding goes to this Our Legacy.  Took me four or five seconds to convince myself I was reading Our legacy backwards/inside out.  Hell of a cool piece.

 

 

 

 

Mm shaggy.  My first one!

 

 

Bonus cuff texture:

 

 

And these guys cropped up in the last couple of days.  No complaints here:

 

Dale of Norway wool quarter zip... has a small "US Ski Team" patch on the cuff, so I think it's a special edition of some kind.  Seems like these do pretty well in that other place.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

and POP!  on mainline, non-cravat Hermes.  Tags are a bit haggard, and the content tag is missing, but almost certainly all cashmere (found a similar piece on ebay, same tags/styling, that was cashmere).  Insanely soft, and possessed of an interesting double layer collar design.  The black inner collar zips up to a full turtleneck, leaving the outer collar to fall normally.  Has a small hole underneath one collar and fits me quite well, so I'm keeping this one.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Just a few tailoring finds lately- FU tweed, Brooks Bros gray flannel DB suit, norfolk jacket(!).

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Vintage unstructured USA made tweed jacket by Knox - fits pretty well and I love the pattern and details- it has black suede elbow patches to match the throat latch and those great flapped pockets 

 

 

 

 

Easily one of my top 5 ever BB finds: A minty fresh Regent fit DB gray flannel suit, made in Italy by Lardini with VBC super 100s fabric.  One badass suit.

 

 

 

 

Not a label that usually fires me up:

 

 

But I'm glad I gave it the benefit of the doubt:

 

 

One of the most impressively "constructed" pieces of clothing I've ever handled.  Almost architectural.  Fits like a sheath, plus is amazing.  NA.

 

 

Full belt, bellows pockets

 

 

Handwarmer pockets, woven leather buttons

 

 

Pattern/color is tough to capture - sunflower and aquamarine check over a barleycorn base with incredible pattern matching throughout.

 

 

Action back

 

 

And to round things out, a sick RLBL midnight velvet dinner jacket, made in Italy by Caruso

 

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Outerwear, starting with Sierra Designs

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Not a bad lineup.  Mostly not available unless you absolutely have to have it in your life.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

this Burberry trench (unbelted raglan covert closure style) made it through the pricing stasi on 50% off day, with the novacheck wool liner and everything.  Chalk that one up to acts of god.

 

 

Ladies black Moncler puffer, no size tags but otherwise in great shape

 

 

 

 

There's been some discussion as to "good" Patagonia and camo; I think this handily qualifies as both.  Olive drab synchilla snap t that reverses into digicam.  No interior tags.  So NA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

and finally, here's a gamble/project to play us out: a barnstormer style work jacket by Windward.  True vintage, any thoughts as to the time period would be welcome.  Mouton lambskin shawl collar and canvas outer with leather details.  

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

They don't make them like they used to etc etc blanket lined pockets and sleeves, shearling lined body

 

 

 

Elasticated cuffs, wool blanket lining

 

 

My size, and a style of jacket that I've been hunting for some time now.  downside?  The lining is all fucked up in places and would need some serious surgery or even replacement to be wearable.  On the other hand, the jacket is otherwise in pretty good shape, and I got it for $5 because of the damage.  A project for a rainy week, perhaps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's all she wrote.  Hope everyone made it through the snow in one piece and raring for a brand new year of grails!
