The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2238

post #33556 of 57864

ALRIGHT FIRST, NO SPOILERS SORRY, AND ALSO, TO GET THIS OUT OF THE WAY, I TOOK THESE AT HOME  NOT THE OFFICE, THUS I HAD TO USE MY PHONE, THUS THE PHOTOS ARE SHIT, I KNOW. SORRY. BUT I FELT IT AN OBLIGATION TO HELP LEAD THE TROOPS INTO THE WEEKEND WITH THE THRIFT ITEMS I ACQUIRED BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 4:35-6:03 PM THIS AFTERNOON. 3 STOPS, THE FIRST I TOOK MY TIME AT WHICH WAS STUPID AND MADE ME RUSH, HOWEVER I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT IT. ENOUGH WORDS. PEEP POTATOES.

 

First just get this out the way, an English tailored wool POW coat. Will be added to the section of my closet that is solely to store my collection of all English tailored outerwear, on or off Row bespoke, or Hunting inspired English tailoring. Yes i do that, I collect, I love it. Next.

 

This is a rarity, however I'm pretty positive the Boss Selection line is their primo shit next to Caruso and I also know Super 150 is good, so fuck it.

 

 

Brooks Brothers Martin Greenfield Golden Fleece

 

 

This one sucks that the color didn't come out. No exaggeration, this is the thrid blue label canali piece I have picked up in atleast 8 months, not cuz I'm a snob or whatever, it's just everywhere, and my inventory would be swimming in it, so I never grab it.....unless its an absolutely beautiful navy blue flannel suit with a blue windowpane, very similar to the very one pictured. You can't see it, but it's there. maybe.

 

 

Not the real deal, US license, however the first one I've come across that isn't in a Gabardine weave, this feels like a coarse wool or something. Whatever it was a slightly different piece, I liked it I bought it, next.

 

This one is the real deal, in every way possible. It's also exactly my size and I feel like you can't have a collection of classic English clothing and not have a Burb trench in there, so this will be hitting the collection also.

 

 

Then I came across a fucking gorgeous slightly dated charcoal birdseye Zegna, so duh I bought it.

 

 

Tie thriftening. One the right is a NWT's PRL Italy, left a fucking 49 fold Charles Tyrwhitt made of pure unobtanium.

 

The fucking biggest loadest and most entirely useless scarf I've ever thrifted. But hey they left the tags on, I know them...

 

 

Oh shit the rest of the tie thriftening.

 

So fucking pissed about this. I was rushing through the racks and saw this dope red peak label suit open it up peep brand stoked toss it over my shoulder and keep muscling it. Well I didn't fucking look at the goddamn thing. It's dope as fuck, but it's women's. However why the top is hidden is that this accepts three day returns so the tag remains. Good luck.

 

 

Brioni DB Peak lapel gray suit with royal blue windowpane

 

I know it's starting to get warmer now and thrifting cold or shitty weather stuff isn't the greatest investment, but this seemed like a nice quality rain coat so I said fuck it.

 

 

Oh no, it's cuz it said this, my bad.

 

 

Another colder weather piece that is pretty sick, may have a 3 season vacay, but whatever.

 

 

 

 

NOW THE FOLLOWING PIECE IS MORE THAN LIKELY THE MOST VALUABLE ITEM I HAVE EVER THRIFTED. IT WASN'T ON THE INVENTORY FLOOR, THEY KEPT IT LOCKED UP FOR WHEN THEY RECOGNIZED BIG SPENDING CUSTOMERS. THEY APPROACHED ME. I SAID YES. THE REST IS HISTORY.

 

I'M SAYING LATE 70'S Vtg CLAUDE MONTANA FULL COAT

 

SHEARED BEAVER FUR SHOULDERS, WITH THE ENTIRE ARMS FRONT AND BACK OF THE ENTIRE BODY AND THE ENTIRE DETACHABLE HOOD

 

PURE FUCKING SABLE

 

This is no mom and pop furrier. This is vintage couture from Claude Montana made almost entirely of Sable Fur. I MAY VERY WELL BE THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS FUCKING THING. And if your not familiar, think Mink fucked a baby seal pelt and then this happened. Then put a couture label on it.

 

THIS THING COULDN'T BE IN MORE MINT, PRISTINE CONDITION. IT'S ABSOLUTELY UNFUCKINGREAL.

 

OH and n/a.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fur on this is unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life. It makes fox feel fake and the finest mink I've felt feel coarse. Pure sex, and with that one girl you always wanted to hit and never did, and then you put that butt to sleep. 

 

The best part is I have no idea what the fuck I'm gonna do with it. Not a clue. 

 

That's what I did for an hour and a half during rush hour, what you do?

Oh I had never felt Sable before in my life. The owner let me compare pelts. She schooled me. And then it made sense why Sable is so fucking legit. It's just the thickest, softest animal fiber there is and nothing feels better on your skin
post #33563 of 57864
FYI I'm pretty sure that is not Sable fur. Sable are the size of ferrets so there is no way those pelts are that big to make that coat. Sable coats are very distinctive that Looks like just mink. His company wasn't even started till 1980. Then he moved over to screw lanvin out of millions and drove himself into being banrupkt. Linda has a new one for $1,999.

I was guessing on the date because the logo doesn't look like the 80s logo he's famous for. So I just. Figured 70s, I don't know shit about women's couture designers. I do know some things though. That the shoulders of this coat are made of sheared beaver, and the arms and body are made of the plushest, softest mini small Russian sables they could find. I've felt mink more fucking times then I can count, I've felt sheared and long haired coats, one of my thrifts has about 13 minks lined up in a row. This is Sable fur. Sorry homie. This shit makes mink feel like pony hair.

And I'll let Linda know I have an insanely rare vintage one that could be one of a kinda for all I know being in this city, that is in flat out mint condition, and proceed to shit on her 2k listing....I mean I guess she is also known to always get top dollar for her stuff too
post #33566 of 57864
I don't understand ur logic with the size of them in comparison to the size of the coat either? I've seen full length chinchillas drag behind women, those things are fucking hampsters. Question all u like, I know what I'm sitting on. Have fun.

And it also looks nothing like mink homie, my pictures were garbage like I said, but it looks nothing like it and feels nowhere near it.
post #33567 of 57864
Well I'd have been happy with any of the things posted before the finale. Congrats on the rare find excited to hear the conclusion to the story!
post #33568 of 57864


Any time someone posts fur, it makes me think of this scene.
post #33569 of 57864
Pickings around here have gotten slim after a hell of a run, but yesterday's finds were few but weighty:







The Hermes is showing wear, but overall looks fresh and much brighter than the photos. I'm downsizing the biz wardrobe, and I'd keep the Belvest if it were in my size.

+1 Not shitting on your finds homie, all good stuff - and its in front of your eyes, not mine - but that doesn't look like Barguzine or Russian sable from here. Maybe some better pics of the guard hairs when you get a chance,
