The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2258

post #33856 of 51252

These are the kinds of days that I open up the thrift thread, scan through it, and wonder what I'm doing with my life.

And now you all want to take quick jabs, expect him not to defend himself, and when he does, come at him like ohhh here goes the old Jompso. 
 
The guy cannot even make a kind gesture in a discount thread where we're all interested in saving money without having to feel the need to pre-defend his gesture.

Meh who gives a fuck,Spoo pass me a drink yo!

 

Maybe I missed something but the dude is calling attention to the gesture specifically so we don't miss out on this deal. For one I think it's damn admirable for him to recognize the losses and prefer to pass them on to us. I'd call attention to something like that too if only to make sure it doesn't fly under the radar of people who may not go back and read 10 pages of squabbling. If anyone think it's a cry for personal attention too just get passed it, say thanks for the ties and go on with your life.

 

Damn boys, no chill around here.

Do these look like incotex to anyone else? Split waistband, made in Romania.

Not incotex.

You gotta be careful with lucite--the lucite buyer wants something in perfect condition. Little scratches can be buffed out, but cracks and stuff are no good. It was a cool piece, though. Wouid have bought for myself if the condition was just a little better.

I posted the same question a few months ago. Made to look higher end than they actually are.

I knew it had been discussed before, I wasn't sure how to search for it though. Glad I left them.

+1 I've been seeing more and more companies imitating incotex lately.

Is it ok if I post some pictures of stuff I found today at thrift stores in this thread?

 

Apparently, if it's wrinkled, it's practically worthless.

 

A couple of nice staples.

Those Brioni's are very recent with that new-style "Made in Italy" label. Nice finds!

Guys, need some advice from you experts.

I'm kinda "in the field" but really just trying to entertain my kid.

J Press: I know nothing about this brand but have seen it pop up in threads and the retail prices on their website make it seem quite Kop-worthy. Is this the case? I was just in a store with my Little ball of joy (~2 yr old) and had to leave in a rush. But not before seeing three J Press blazers that seemed pretty crispy. Not tweed, though.
It's about 1.5 hour round trip with this little brat. Worth going back for? Snapped this pic quickly while dealing with a wife and child meltdown. (Side note: anyone want a wife and kid? Both are extremely good-looking but huge PITAs)


I'd need to leave soon as I think they'll be closing soon after I got back.

Was done for the day and at checkout this was laying on the counter with a bunch of Zegna ties ready to be put out on the racks.
The Zegna ties were wide and old but this looked pretty nice. If legit my long time wait for a "pop" on Hermes is over! Looks like one side of the keeper is loose and is in place with a safety pin. Oh well..its just going in my closet anyway.
