The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2503post #37531 of 510885/30/16 at 7:23ampost #37532 of 510885/30/16 at 7:40am
Kind of ticked (with myself).
Thrifted a nice Canali linen short-sleeve shirt, that fits me well, earlier this weekend. I ended up wearing it on the weekend, and somehow, got a tiny hole in it on my left torso. At least it's in a spot where one may not notice it, but I know it's there, and it's bugging me.
The material is light yellow, and a fine linen weave. When I have time this week, I'm going to try and figure out if I can get it repaired.post #37533 of 510885/30/16 at 7:45ampost #37534 of 510885/30/16 at 8:12ampost #37535 of 510885/30/16 at 8:18am^^^^Very nice! I was in Bloomingdale's on Saturday fondling the Edios stuff. First time handling it, and I've got to say, I was impressed. You will not be disappointed. On a related note, I don't think I can ever pay retail for anything ever again, high end at least. I cringed dropping $10 on some tee shirts from H&M.post #37536 of 510885/30/16 at 8:23amQuote:
+1 on thrifted clothing being disposable
+10 on the excellent Boyz in the Hood referencepost #37537 of 510885/30/16 at 9:13amWent to the rack had they had allot of stuff like eidos,zegna,canali 1934 and moncler but even with the 25% there was nothing worth touching at the prices they were asking. So I hit the thrift store on my way home and grabbed a pair of park avenues and a filson mackinaw both new with the tags for $40 now that's a clearance sale.post #37538 of 510885/30/16 at 9:37amQuote:Yea thrifting has 100% fucked up the way I shop for myselfOriginally Posted by eazye

I didn't leave the house until 4pm today and thought there was no point in stopping at any thrifts. I stopped at one anyways. The parking lot was full, the place was a mad house, as it always is on the weekends. Everything seemed terribly picked over, but I found these two.

I don't know shit about Julius, so I'm hoping you guys don't kill my vibe and tell me it's fake or some crap. Seems nice enough. The other tag says made in Japan, etc.
Gangster-as-can-be ivory cashmere Brioni jacket w/ leather piping and silk lining. It has a couple small moth holes down low on a sleeve. Really, if it has to have damage, that's a good spot. The front and back are perfect, so I'll take that!
Both NA right now, sorry.

Got home from Chicago earlier this evening. Had a great time with the lady, ate amazing food, saw incredible art and didn't find a damn thing at the one GW stop I made but that's alright. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Beautiful city.
What WASN'T alright was the airline losing my bag. Bag was nowhere to be found when I arrived back in Reno today. I know that I haven't been at it for long at all but that bag contained many items I have thrifted for myself in attempting to build a respectable CM wardrobe and, although humble by many standards, I'm damn proud of them and was fucking gutted at the thought of them being either lost in the bowels of Chicago Midway airport or in the hands of some oblivious traveler who grabbed my bag by mistake. My Brooks Brothers Black Fleece SC that fits me like it was made for me..my suede Sutor Mantellassi chukkas that I have yet to even wear..my Iron Hearts..my Zegna sweater gifted by @mistermidwester
that I absolutely love..my Ricci and Hackett ties..my crocodile belt!
So I collected myself and did the only thing I could think of to make myself feel better...hit the nearest thrift.
2x pop for me (nothing special but I've been wanting to find a Hermes tie since day one and the Tyrwhitt is an added bonus)
Just got a phone call about a half hour ago and they found my bag and are delivering it to my door tonight!
Good to be home. Hope you all have a great holiday!
Glad you're getting your bag back! That GW has some of the best finds in the city, but it's also got at times 12 people or more attacking new racks when they roll out. But, if you get in there and fight its worth it.post #37544 of 510885/30/16 at 10:39am
Makeshift studio putting a nail on a white wall. Some of these turned out better than my mannequin pictures probably would have. This was a #onestop at rag-o-rama. Forgot to take a picture of a W&H waffle knit henley but oh well.
This isn't just a thread first, it appears to be a Styleforum first. It is absolutely baller.
It's a bird, reading a book.
Abe would have rocked the shit out of these.post #37545 of 510885/30/16 at 10:42amQuote:
What they are is fucking horrible.
I'd buy 'em to flip, but no chance they would go anywhere near my feet. And you can't tell if they are fake or not by the quality either, really.
No pictures, but a few items this weekend. Favourite was an Olney Panama hat (receding hairline and fair skin, I need hats in any kind of sunny weather) and a Zegna tie for 50p was probably the biggest bargain.
