This is the bike I bought, albeit in the trim I used to race it with.

 

 

How I bought it after a bit of cleaning up slash new housing etc.

 

 

The stock wheels actually had oil ports in them!

My first NWT haul retailed around 15k. With the other 2 post I am close to 17k now.

January has been a great month. Fruit the swollen tree y'all

Hoping someone would be so kind as to answer a question I had. Was just curious, when you guys say something is "available", I'm guessing you mean available to others in this thread, correct? And when you do sell to someone in this thread, do you guys usually offer a discount, or charge the going rate (i.e. use something like eBay to figure cost)? I was just wondering what most people do. I see a lot of great "available" stuff here, but I can't imagine everyone is spending large amounts around here since this IS a thrift thread......well maybe they do. 

 

Sorry if this has been answered before. I've made it through a lot of this thread, but haven't seen this asked/answered. And, you try searching this thread using various keywords along with "available", and see how long you last. :P

If its stated as available, it means its available to others in this thread.

Also, because there are some people that do this as their main source of income, it is usually priced full / a little less to avoid ebay fees.

I think everyone is fairly reasonable with their prices here.

sometimes when you see things that people leave behind that are in your size, you can ask them to proxy (cost + a beer or somwthing + shipping ).

I always feel like a little kid trying to show his dad how far he can throw a baseball when I post here, but here goes...





1. I have been searching for a nice glen plaid tie since I started thrifting. It's always nice to find something that's exactly what you've been looking for.

2. I know J.Crew's not super impressive, but it's nice to thrift staples in your size. I've found it hard to find basics that aren't trashed.

3. The "rabbits fencing" tie was an e-thrift. My wife and I have 2 pet rabbits, and she is a fencer, so I absolutely could not pass this up.

Any ideas on the Woolrich MiUSA fleece? I can't find a content tag. Seemed too cool to pass up. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Finally, a couple of bloopers. Not the greatest way to find your first Savile Row label... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Had a coat hanger hole in the shoulder, too. Not even sure if this is legal or just a G&H label slapped on a generic cashmere sweater.

This is totally legit, right?

Any sneaker doods familiar with Buscemis?

 

Just received an offer for a trade locally with someone offering a pair of the 100mm model bnib.

 

These aren't currently counterfeited, are they?

Thanks dude! Don't worry, I voted for thrifting an entire store because that's just insane. I'm pretty sure I only beat you since I don't think we ever saw the full haul(or did we?) Photographing 800 items for a post? Ain't nobody got time for that.
