@SpooPoker if that Hugo Boss is not an older Caruso...then any ideas whom? 

 

This is the label from the Thrift label guide -

 LL 

 

compared to the Hugo Boss i picked up 

 

I mean i can see the variation but it is oh so similar. 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

if the guide lists that as Caruso, its wrong - thats older Boss made Boss, not Caruso. They've never used German as a listed language on the tag.

So today I was having a bit of a day, and decided to grab some Panera for lunch. While there I decided to pop into the discount shoe store around the corner for a look, because they usually have something fun. 

 

Wound up kopping these.

total for the pair was ~1/5 retail, which isnt too bad for self, and made me feel better.

 

Followed this up with a trip to a local Jeweler that my dad uses for most of my mother's jewelry and such to have them look at this:

(Which I didnt thrift) Turned out to be legit, to my delight, 14k white, and yellow gold with a mine cut diamond in the center. They said that they would probably retail it for ~100$ more than I paid for it, which made me happy. However, the intended recipient was more than happy to hear the news.

 

Left there, and hit the thrift around the corner, and found some pleated Brionis, Incos, and some NWT FF Bills M2 Twills, but the line was long, So I left em. 

 

I realized I never posted my fits in the new suits I got from @Versace Guy

 

Pardon the Instagram

crap pictures from today. I hate when you stop by a store, find a decent amount of good stuff, hit 4 more places and find nothing at any of the other stores.

 

(side note: I hate you guys for getting me to mumble "kitontomfordkitontomfordkitontomfordkitontomford" as I walked into stores. Totally got caught and stared at by a mom and her kid.)

 

(L to R - Ferrari, RLPL, Cappelli pop!, HF Wool/Silk, VV x3)

 

Upside down Shipley & Halmos, Theory (S&H is medium, really wish it was a large. fits just a bit too snug and short)

 

This monstrosity

 

This thing

 

And then this guy. I saw it from literally 25 feet away and said "guarantee I buy that". Was confused when I flipped to the label. Had never heard of Corallorosso. Then flipped to makers tag and had an 'aha!' moment. That's Isaia, right?

^^ they tried early on to do a cheaper version of isaia mainline. Similar to eidos now. I've sold some for just as much as mainline.

Killer Isaia SC! Love when you can spot those highend fabrics from across the store.

Alpacuna is almost worse than the purple Hunt Club, red Izod, and purple Sean John labels.
