Was this a good kop? Massimo Dutti 3 Roll 2, Double vent, surgeon cuffs





post #29042 of 51365
I can't comment on how well Massimo Dutti resells but I find they use excellent fabrics and I really like their fit. I believe they are owned by the same company as Zara but are completely different stores IMO. Much more safe and traditional. On that note I've found a few very recent Zara pieces that are nice to look at from a distance but the quality is awful and the fit is gross.

The boots themselves have no markings but the came with the shoe trees you see pictured and it looks like the boots were used with said tree's.

Any thoughts?


I also found these vintage Japanese boots:
















Lastly, I came across this sweater:












It's built like a brick house, seriously one of the most impressive pieces of knitwear I have come across.

I searched online for this company and received no results. Anyone ever see one of these before have any ideas?[/quote]

Thanks for the love (and PMs) all.

Just to add a bit more clarity: the best of the best stuff in there -- like the shoes -- were well above true thrift pricing (but still pretty dang good), because they're intended for personal use (and thus basically NA, unless you want to really wow me). I don't want to leave folks with the impression I found, for example, Edward Green twotone boots or a gaggle of Finamore NWT at my local.

On the other hand, there's also about a dozen Epaulet and Yount pants I've bought over the last month at pretty decent prices that I didn't photograph.

And this suit was part of the big SuitSupply buy that the other SuSu suits above came from. Again, paid up, but when everything is sold off, I will likely end up with the best pieces for free. And that's the whole plan with a lot of these big, expensive buys.

Would rock that knit so fucking hard.

That sweater tag says New Waterford NS, right?  Try googling "Marie Helen Chiasson" or "Mary Ellen Chiasson", should get some results.

sharing is caring. yesterday's kills:

 

snap-t is 2015.

 

a quick word about the tie - i like PRL italian ties but they really are very focused on loomcraft.

IMO the US-made o.g. PRLs are soooo nice in terms of foulard and whimsical prints.

love em.

Oh well. Catch and release.

For $40, it would have been a hard catch and release for me...

Damn, dude. Not like you were a huge guy before, but did you lose a ton of weight?

Smoking.

Morning gents. The rain finally relented and it's a nice day here in little old England today. Ahhhhh Sundays.

i had a dream last night that I walked into a store and found 6 pairs of Aldens. 3 of them were 30 bucks each, 2 were 715 dollars each and one was 300. (Not shell, seriously, I remember that). I put them in my basket anyway and went to check out, and complained about the disparity in price, and they relented, apologized, and gave them all to me for 30 bucks each and gave me half off everything for their mistake.

Hopefully thats a good premonition.

Also a sign that I do this too much.
