The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2229

post #33421 of 51082

A couple of my recent finds. Not sure if this is some kind of original polo?

 

 

 

I love this shirt, mostly cause it actually fits.

 

 

A nice pair of Wesco boots.

 

 

And a cool floor lamp, for a cougar fan.

The cashier told me yesterday when I bought a pair of boots that the same guy dropped off two other pairs, I guess I know where they went.

Hate to do this but someones gotta....1. Neck tag is wrong. 2. No Brioni Roma lining. 3. They size labels are sewn in the wrong side up, they're upside down on Roma models. 4. Brioni slacks have a white solid skirt lining aroud the top, not broken. 5. The pant size should be sewn to the fly. 6. There's no marking for where a patch once was. 7. The fabric content tags are entirely wrong. 
 
In Conclusion: Naw homie...sorry

Maybe this can help. Found these Brioni SCs recently. They are from around the same era as those. Definitely some differences, as Jompso noted. 

 

White/Blue tag that they used for years.

 

 

The linings say "Brioni Roma" instead of just "Brioni" on more modern ones.

Good eye.

 

Also, just check if the jacket is fully canvassed or not. Just a guess, but I doubt a fake would be fully canvassed.

Could be just another unknown maker that uses a very similar tag, not intended as fake. A true fake would probably have annoying Brioni branding all over it.

I feel like I've even seen this size/name/date tag on something non-Brioni before. Nervesa, maybe? Can't remember.

brioni buttonholes are pretty distinctive. very tight, high relief, very obviously handsewn. they will literally jump out at you if legit.

 

it's interesting how much of a signature buttonholes can be: oxxford, brioni... i just copped a bijan and lemme tell you bout some buttonholes

 

EDIT: pretty sure the Bijan is made by Isaia...

Definitely not Nervesa. Not only do they manufacturer in house, they have a very distinctive tag with a large N that can be seen in various other brands jackets they manufacturer as well. And there's using a similar tag and then there's using an exact replica of a tag just sewn in incorrectly, with a content tag depicting a poor attempt at replication. Lazy fake or just another jacket.... guess we'll never know...

I keep reading buttonholes as buttholes.

I'm 33 years old and have two kids.

Thanks for the thumbs and comments guys, it is very much appreciated - I have a lot of fun putting together posts for this thread and enjoy being able to contribute in my own way to a community that has taught me so much.

 

@330CK and @snackbandit I have to reluctantly conclude that you're right about the Cartier; the serial # doesn't match up to anything in the cartier archives.  Definite bummer, but the bright side is that I now have a timepiece with the look I wanted that I don't have to fret over too much when it's raining or when I inevitably smack the face on corners etc.  

 

Much more traumatic was leaving behind a heavily tarnished all clad set with immaculate interiors, researching it, finding out its a discontinued cop-r-chef set that retailed for more than grand, and going back to find no more than empty shelf :censored:.  Anybody know if my current psychic pain is justified?  The outers were blue-black and streaky but the inners were immaculate stainless steel.  I initially figured they had been ruined by heat or something but now I suspect it was just heavy patina.  Ugh.

 

The thrift gods havent entirey turned their backs on me though:

 

Some synergy with @Spruce Moose... I figured it was at least 70% cashmere, any chance you could share what the other 30% is (guessing silk)? 

Tags entirely removed...

but them mops dont lie!  available; probably ~44

Some variations on the tee..

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

of mice and men baseball tee with a reaper design.  Much angst.  NA

NWT James Perse colorblock henley, available

Very cool made in usa PMOA baseball sleeve shirt with a print of Fernand Leger's "The mechanic" NA

Absolutely incredible vintage jerzees tri-blend with a new york music motif - NA

 

And following my brief rhapsody re. zegna sport's 70/30 cotton/cash blend, I found this:

70/30 silk/cotton - perfect summer blend, and lets me along the frankly too small sunspel longsleeve polo currently in my wardrobe

Great details on this one: shoulder panels, sleeve buttons, and a "buttondown" collar

Some fleecy goodness:

Figawi race special edition? 

Pretty old patagucci- not sure how us made non-synchilla does on the bay, but figured I'd take a gamble

And some old school Ralph - the best kind, imo- to round things out:

Love that linen.  Love those peaks.

Doesn't say guaranteed to wrinkle, but I suspect it will

42/36?  Interesting.

Probably referring to the pants, which turned up a few minutes later - my eyes have long been attuned to those distinctive prl suspender buttons.

 

Until next time!

Consensus on authenticity here? Colors are vivid and label looks good to me but the silk doesn't feel like I imagine it would...only my second time handling Ricci.
