The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2036

post #30526 of 51106

Gonna just leave some really shitty teasers here since I won't have a chance to fully photo these for a while.

 

Almost all one stop except for 2 things. (L to R: Jack Victor w. LP Cashmere, EZ cashmere, another Jack Victor w. LP Cashmere, BB triple patch, Burberry, Isaia, Isaia, Magee Donegal tweed, Vtg 3 piece, BB sweater that has a hole I didn't see, Borrelli dad jeans...seriously, the daddest jeans ever)

 

 

On one final stop, I found my oldest find to date. A bespoke tailcoat for a Mpls judge from 1911. One of those things where I was like "I don't need this at all, but it's under $10 and it's 105 years old....."

Gloverall use to do pretty well on the bay but recently, not too great but if you were to wait, you might get a decent price. How much was it? I would totes kop if cheap and I'll just rip that tag off.

Bro, that's the same shit I'll be telling others, "I don't know what these are but I like the pattern or insert some other bullshit or my wife will love these when she doesn't." I've told others I buy for my friends and we trade stuff we like in our size which is true but I left out the flipping part. Shit, I'll tell anything to anyone to try to make them think I'm a fucking noob who doesn't know what I'm doing. Oh yeah, I'll never tell folks what they have if they are noobs, too or they are just pretending to play the same game I've been playing. lol I mean, how hard is it to google something?

Wish we had estate sales.

If you see the term "estate sale" in one of our local papers, it's the equivalent of someone got evicted from their condemned mobile home and needs to sell the shit that's been sitting in the front yard for 2 weeks in the rain.

Hitting a couple estate sales today; last day, but we'll see what's left.

 

One has a paid of Eddy Merckx bikes, and the other has a bunch of autographed comics, and such from the 60s. Both within about 15min of me.

Really wish I hit some estate sales when I lived in Miami, they had a ton every weekend but that was before I got heavy into reselling. Probably missed some sweet Versace stuff frown.gif

Couple of bits from today.

How old is this?






This awesome Cowes Week pullover.



And this is the weird as shit Orvis shirt thing.
The hell is this thing? I'm going to get it slimmed down for the summer.

I don't understand how people can wear tassels today and not think that they look dorky. Besides, at three dollars for the shoes and six dollars for the shine I can't complain.

Classic tassel loafers like the Alden Tassel or the Allen Edmonds Grayson are not dorky. They are a staple of classic menswear. There are cheesy looking tassel loafers out there, but styles like the Alden tassel are timeless when paired with the right outfit.

But, here's the more important question. WHY ARE YOU PAYING FOR A SHOE SHINE especially on calf leather shoes? You can get polish, a dauber, and a brush for the cost of a couple shines and do it yourself. It is also very satisfying to do it yourself and admire your own work.

If you don't know how to shine shoes, ask your grandpa or your dad OR look at this forum's shoe care thread.

I've worn plenty of women's pieces of clothing in my life so I wasn't trying to make fun or anything. Just helping to explain why it's different.
