I found what is probably the most useful thing I have ever thrifted.  

 

A Gentleman's Valet Electric Heated Pants Presser!  

 

I have wanted one of these for a long time.  But, everytime I have found at an estate sale it is 50 years old and doesn't heat up, or its already sold.  

 

 

 

 

AND, the price?  

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
$20! 

 

I already tested it!  Works great! 

 

Anyone have enough expertise to identify kind of wood? 

 

There were a bunch of old (but practically pristine) wood folding chairs at an estate sale. 

 

I thought maybe they were oak.  But, if they were meant for outdoors they could be teak.   If it makes any difference, they were made in Romania, but I could not find any maker. 

 

 

AND finally, if there was a Thriftening just for Women's clothes, my wife got it today. 

 

BUNCHES of NWT Misook, Ming Wang, and St. John.  Suits, Blazers, 2 and 3 piece sets, probably 40 sets in all.

closer pic might help, looks like birch from here.

 

fyi - if an outdoor piece has got any kind of protective finish (poly, lacquer etc) it's not likely to be teak. most outdoor teak is unfinished and when it turns grey from exposure you can just sand it down a little and the teak color will be restored.

I found one almost identical to yours and it is useful. Paid 10 for mine. Shortly after I happened across another one and that thrift store wanted 50 for it.

Jeez. Glad I found the first one, first.

I like that they are timed.

Most sort of interesting thing from today: The question, is it legit? :hide:

 

There are buttons underneath that hold the collar down. I've seen that on another EZ shirt that I kept for myself due to a defect.

 

What throws me off is that it is completely not like the usual EZ stuff I've seen. It is in your face Springtime.

 

Lots of tags (looks sort of legit to me):

 

 

But the rest of the tags just look/feel sort of cheap to me even though the RN matches.

Thanks!

It's probably been a year since I posted a brag here, so I'm dipping my toes in.
I think this is the "good" Belvest, because it feels pretty nice. At a very thrifty price.

Oreally? Tassels are lame. Only Fuddy old men wear them. Totally not swish. I need some lawn mowing shoes how can I acquire them?
