Little help here. I rarely ask this but maybe I'm just having a brainfart day:

 

 

Cantarelli?

 

 

Any idea on this one? Thanks!

 

Bottom one is Scuderi. They make the Trussini line for Boyd's in Philadelphia.

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.

 

good point. Thanks, I had not thought about that.  It does look like there is some sort of finish on them.  So, they are not likely to be teak.

@SpooPoker Ugh that hammy. I might be interested in paying non thrift prices for that if it doesn't go straight into your collection.

Anyone have any idea on what the fabric could be?
I'm tossing up between cashmere, camel & some vicuna/alpaca type animal.
FWIW, it feels much softer than my Dries Van Noten camel hair coat

Isn't there a boiled wool thing that's popular right now? Looks like that.

^ casentino. But that is not it.
post #31975 of 54503

^^^ don't forget about alpaca/blend. baby alpaca is as soft as anything and easier to find.

Since thrifted watches are the topic at hand, 

 

Here are a few recently thrifted watches

 

Two Timex Indiglo I found a month ago, An Ernest Borel Watch I got yesterday (see details below), an OLD Timex 100, an Elgin Sportsman, a Nixon Watch with the Eyes going back forth like a second hand, and a Casio Databank. 

 

 

 

 

The Ernest Borel is a very cool that I was not familiar with.  It is called a cocktail watch.  The center flowery dial turns and twists like a kaleidoscope.  This is from the 60's and works perfectly.  It does not have the original band.  But, oddly the band is likely valuable just by itself.   I am going to replace the bland and sell the current one separately. 

 

 

 

You probably can't read this, but it is says Krementz  Oct 1930 and "Kremaloy" 

 

It is also HUGE. SUPER LONG I guess for the fattest guy in the world. 

 

 

 

Plus, these two that were listed and sold quickly.  

 

I think I may have already shared them last week (before I really knew what they were and before I knew they were going to sell so fast)

This one went in 90 minutes (I guess I had it priced too low) 

 

 

 

This one went in 12 hours
