My always needed item is Eton shirts, 15.5 to 16 collar. I can never find enough of them and I prefer them to any other brand. Charity shops seldom know who they are either, so they don't bump up the prices 😎

Edit - That and Edward Greens, but who the fuck finds those (in the UK, I've seen the posts from the damn US guys 😢)

Got it. I'll try to find some! My Oxfam never bumps prices, so shirts are usually £3 no matter what brand.

Meh, that's cheap enough, shirts are mostly £3-5 here, sometimes a couple of quid if they need to shift a few, although my haul yesterday was from a car boot sale so mostly cheaper than that.

I need to go to more car boots then if Dunhills are to be found. If today gives me Kiton I'll die happy.

A great example of a conversation that should have taken place by private message.

Dunhill is a bit of a rarity, but PRL, Paul Smith, Hackett, D&G, Armani are fairly regular, occasional Stone Island, C P Company, Gucci & Prada. Watch out for poor condition & fakes - there are loads more fakes than in charity shops.

So could that, no?

I thought forums were places to engage in conversation, and that was mainly thrift related. If it strayed to far off topic then I apologise to whoever moderates this thread.

Thrift thread. Chatting about thrifting, what's wrong with that? I don't see a problem smile.gif

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to SPOO. A few weeks back I picked up three pairs of great shoes at very cheap consignment. Auctions ended yesterday and all three were record highs for me including the one pair of lattanzi's that went for almost triple my previous high sale. I know no one needs encouragement to use his services but I could not be happier.
Good luck on working this full-time my friend. Working with you has always been a pleasure and profitable.

Of all the jackets I wear random people always come up to me and compliment or ask me about my jacket when I'm wearing my be belstaff jackets. It's the weirdest thing.
