The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2098

Cool find from yesterday.


Love seeing the older tags. And side button adjusters.

Gotta catch up on the thread a bit...

Little teaser first. Thrifted one of the holy grails] of military clothing today. Pics to come.

Just one coffee pickup today. Women's small Snap T. Available

Thrifts around here continue to be better than expected. This isn't much (especially for most of you) but for these parts, I was pretty happy.

 

Found these dope Sebago X Filson Boots. The soles look nearly new.

 

 

 

I've been looking to come across a good pair of Cords and finally did. Vineyard Vines in my size.

 

 

 

Finally, nothing crazy, but a cool LL Bean cotton Safari Sport Coat thing also in my size and cheap.

 

 

 

The thrift gods seem to be smiling on everyone a little bit lately. Good luck out there!

Here we go.
B10 Flight Jacket. U.S. Army Air Corp, pre USAF.
Mouton collar and alpaca lined. Released in 1944. I've seen quite a few of these in militaria auctions and in stores but I've never seen one in this good of condition. This is a ridiculous come up.

 good tip - i wasn't 100% sure about maintaining shell.  I've spent a little time working the shoes with a horsehair brush and they definitely are cleaning up well, but I don't have any venetian cream (and I'll be damned if I let my first pair of shell crack all to shit).  Should I just get some from allen edmonds or suck it up and go saphir?


Screw the name brands. Venetian is venetian. Just get a big old tank can of the stuff called literally "venetian cream." I got mine of ebay or Amazon or something. big metal can that you'd get maple syrup out of, but creamy shell goodness.

Hell, if you want, pm me your address and I will send you some. One can is enough to last more than a lifetime.

Wow!! . I've found the lined flight pants with the suspenders before, but never even seen one of these in person before, let alone in that great of shape. Love the Army Air Forces stencil too. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

1963 Look Magazine. Not worth much, but I love finding stuff like this for myself. 



The interesting thing about that magazine is that it probably was printed about the same time as JFKs assassination. I see it is the December 3, 1963 edition.

just one pickup today but I really like it.

post #31467 of 57794
So stoked. Spiewak fishtail, quilted Thinsulate lining. Awesome.







Good tie run.

OK I'll take them to that place then.

You're right - this is not the thread for overt selling.
post #31470 of 57794
Been keeping up on the thread and there's so much fire lately. It's been dry as a bone here. Totally brutal.

Other than some fodder, the only thing that's tripped my trigger lately is this vintage Banana Republic safari shirt that has the coolest pattern I've ever seen on one. Really rad quail print. N/A.



Keep on rockin' it, ya'll. Send some good luck my way while you're at it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
