You're absolutely right. I just skimmed over the JFK feature and it makes no mention of the assassination.

All that talk on the eBay thread about women's clothing..

I was sick for about half the month of February so I made each thrift visit count.

Seems like I've been finding more women's items recently. I've never had any big issue with selling in that area. Usually it is the guys who seem really really upset when they've measured wrong and want a refund.

 

@piyi, buying in bulk when you're new at it probably isn't the best. Probably 80% of what you would have received would have been re-donated, not worth the time to list... Targeted shopping is what it is about. Sell one piece for $$$ instead of 10 pieces for pennies each...

 

Anyway, enough with the talk. All of these found in the past month except the Laura Ashley which I just got around to photographing tonight.

I've been using Venetian Cream for a few years now. I don't like the fact it doesn't shine my shoes. Also, there's some sort of sealer in it. I'm not a big fan of sealers. I prefer just straight up conditioner. Am I doing it wrong?

My new favorites tie. Vintage brown wool challis N/A


Brioni


Elgin


Polo/Corn 100% Flax




Pop! First time finding anything tailored by Chipp. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with the quality and handwork. This one is raw silk/silk lined with MOP's and working cuffs. Pretty cool!





And of course, always impressed with the quality of Oxxford. Does anybody know what their "Range 10 Sportcoats" signifies?

Sorry for the potatopictures and the setting, but heres some finds from the last few weeks, mostly thrifted n the last few days tho. 

 

 

A pop! for me, Harris wharf London unstructured merino wool blazer/cardigan. Its my size and its very comfy, a weee bit too big..  

 

Eddy & Bros, a Lubiam diffusion line, below LBM 1911 but this jacket is pretty much exactly like a LBM 1911 blazer. And my size, woop. 

 

Our Legacy blazer, cotton/linen/tencel mix, unstructured etc. abit too big but I like my Our Legacy as I like my alcohol consumption, oversized. 

 

 

Oscar Jacobson blazer, swedish brand, has been around for quite some time. Their current stuff is really nice, and this one cant be more than a 2 years old. 

 

 

Pop! Sulka sportscoat, 100% cashmere, really cool fabric, supersoft, supercool. 

 

Ancient Brioni, some serious shoulderpadding.. cashmeremix. 

 

Crockett & Jones handgrade collection model:  Millbank size 9,5 

 

Cant be worn more than once, Loake 1880 Kempton. Also 9,5.... I LOVE suede chukkas so finding two in a few weeks is awesome.. Just that im size 8,5....

 

Eleventy shirt, Comme des Garcons shirt, Zegna linen shirt.

Regent belt company, Stefano Vernizzi, Corneliani

On a totally unrelated note, does anybody have a blue or navy bow tie they'd want to sell me on the cheap? Brand does not matter in the slightest. I'm standing up in a wedding this spring and the bride wants the groomsmen in blue bow ties. Thanks in advance!
