I did it and I am sure a lot of other did as well (even though I was there for a lot of vol 1). Some people acted like it was impossible. If you are passionate about anything dont you do your research? For example you dont start trading stocks and just ask people what stocks they are buying and go with it..

Warning: deetz! (Click to show)

there's also a remnant of a small tag on the side of the ribbed hem (see below)

 

 

 

knit pockets

 

 

 

and just for kicks here's an old-ass fleece full zip i've got as well. my hunch is that the knit is older.:

 

Warning: even more deetz! (Click to show)

 

 

 

main zip 

 

pocket zip. the pockets are constructed of that synchilla as well.

It's not a bad idea, it's just unreasonable to expect every single person to read both threads before they start thrifting or posting. Maybe 1 in 20 people will do that. Maybe less.

If hooker has me blocked, at least I know it's because I argue too fucking much. Some of yall take that shit to another level tho lol. Anyway, nordy is doing 25% off clearance. So I bought some shit.

I agree with that. I never suggested to do it before they can make a post. Its literally a free resource that not many (1 out of 20) take advantage of.

Yeah, that pile (fleece) jacket screams very early 80s to me. I found one some time ago that was from 1983, which looked like a newer style than that one. The wool sweater could be mid to late 70s. I'd say that the pile jacket is far more interesting. I've heard of old Patagonia jackets going for $2000+ in mint condition.

 

By the way, that's not Synchilla fleece. Synchilla was introduced around 1983, and is composed entirely of polyester. The earlier fabrics were collaborations between Patagonia and Malden Mills (makers of Polartec fabrics these days) to make a synthetic fabric that was warm, lighter than wool and didn't pill. Synchilla was the culmination of that effort; and wasn't improved upon until the Regulator fabrics came out in the late 90 (those were also a collaborative effort between Patagonia and Malden Mills).

It's the best resource imaginable. Instead of a list saying this is what you should buy without some sort of explanation, you get a chance to learn from other peoples mistakes.

Thrifted this cool pair of Earl shoe trees for a dollar:

And here they are in my newest e-thrift.




Have not been able to track down who made these for Charvet. I figured I could not go wrong for what I paid and they are nice. If anyone knows I appreciate the information.
Thanks

yeah, as i was typing that i was wondering if synchilla wasn't 100% poly lol. point being that the pocket bags are the same fabric as the shell (since i didn't show it) but The Knowledge is of course welcome.

 

the labels are actually pretty different from each other, i'm buying your read on the vintages. much thanks.

 

and yeah the pile jacket is a keeper for now i've seen one or two similar listings. i think if either had exterior labels they'd frankly be $$$ but yeah it seems the cult is here to stay so we'll see with a bit of research.

Stopped in thrift while travelling today, but nothing caught my eye, except this one Versace tie.

Does it look legit? It feels legit. Versace markings are still something I'm trying to decipher.

Also saw previously Patagonia zip but it had some companies logo on it. Nothing I would wear..but do people actually buy them regadless with logos on them?

Lol okay I won't wait to get better pics. Not sure if anyone here will be as excited about this stuff as I am. It's been pretty slow-going for me lately, so that may have added to the excitement.


Highwaymen painting. Local market on these is so strong. Currently negotiating a price with a local collector.


Litho by Jacqueline Berkley. Not a household name but i have one of her paintings hanging in my gallery space at the moment, and the gallery owner loves it.




Daita Kimura. Pretty sure this is pony hair? And bespoke, I think.



Print by Anton Heyboer. May be a monotype. Will need to inspect in more depth


And my favorite of the day: mid century Italian ceramic leopard statue, about 3-4 feet tall. Walk into any random Old Palm Beach mansion and you'll find something similar. This is a keeper.
