Sorry for all the pics but it was a good week for ties.

 

EZ x5 (first is couture)

 

EZ x5

 

Canali x2, Brioni x3

 

Corn, RT, RT 7 Fold, P. Millar 7 Fold, Ricci, Isaia 7 Fold

 

Been waiting for a long time for this pop. POPx2

 

 

 

NC-17 (Click to show)

 

AE Park Ave

Trafalagar Gator x2 for Paul Smith

 

Brioni x2, EZ, T&A

 

RT x4

 

 

 

The rest is from today. I never expect much from Saturdays, but it started out ok with a Paul Stuart tux and AE belt.

 

 

Most everything else was from the next spot. 

 

Facc x3, Hilditch & Key

 

Ricc, Italo Ferreti, EZ, Dolcepunta 7 Fold

 

DC 7 Fold, Ike, RLPL, Canali

 

Then it got really good...

 

Not quite thrift prices for my locale, but probably on par with what some of you guys typically see.

 

 

 

And finally...POP! Probably the only suit I've bought and considered losing weight if it would eventually fit. 

Wool/cash blend

Is it worth making the drive from Raleigh to the BB factory store in Garland? I'll be there a few days next week, but it's out of the way. If it's picked over by other resellers, I don't want to waste my time.

Went to an estate sale in a huge house, but not much clothing-wise. All I got was about 1/3 of his tie collection and some shirts. I gotta say, the guy was consistent.

All Talbott, a couple still with tags


Talbott Extra-long X 3, Zegna, J. Blades & Co. (?), Altea


Holiday-themed Reyns. Not sure if they're valuable, so I passed on a couple more of these.

He did have ONE suit, but it was a bit dated: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A few good finds at the thrift store on my way home:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

NWT Lubiam 1911 dinner jacket. Couldn't find the pants anywhere.


Psycho Bunny pajama pants, women's J Press trousers. (They make these in China?)



One of these things is not like the other, but I love it and I'm keeping it!

Just a friendly reminder to always check the women's section. Worst (or best?) thrift store employees ever put these in the wimminz. I spent 30 mins combing through, really hope I didn't miss anything. All my size, mostly N/A:

Left column top to bottom:
Epaulet (these ones: http://epauletnewyork.com/products/slim-walt-trouser-uk-donegal-tweed-salt-pepper)
Wings and Horns
Carson Street (by Hertling)
Steven Alan
RRL

Right column top to bottom:
Blue in Green
Left Field
Billy Reid
Wings and Horns

Who's down for an estate-sale-style pop up?

I remember our own thrift bro Noble Professor documented his trip. It is in this thread somewhere if you search. Wasn't worth the travel, as I understood it. You can look at sellers like Steve Smith and see those dudes are getting the good stuff.

Ya I'm Sure He Said It Was Full Of miss cuts and Irregulars. Discounts weren't all that great like 25%.
