Other than "it's currently in style" though, why should anyone pick pleats instead of flat front in that outfit? I do not visit any other parts of this forum and I wear the same pair of jeans 6 days a week. I'm just curious.

so after that ralph lauren mega haul the other day, i went back to the house to see if there were any leftovers that I could grab. Well, it seems they also brought in more stuff. This woman was if the the biggest, one of the biggest RL clients in New York - at least Long Island. So the guy said he would hook me up because i got a lot of stuff the other day and I picked out about 500 pieces of Purple Label, Black Label, or Polo. No filler, no Ralph line, no RLX, no Lauren line. Only premium stuff. thats the picture you see in the room with my haul on the rolling racks. A good 60-65% of it is NWT too.

He tallied me up and gave me an awesome price and I agreed. Now, I had left about 750 similar pieces besides these because they were just kind of boring next to the prints, fabrics and vintages I had in my initial pick. But he says to me "Want to make me an offer for the rest of the house?" I say "Not really, I'm good". He says - take the rest of the house for $500 and call it a day. WHAT?! 75 cents an item? You got it brother. So I went and gathered another 750 pieces. I cant even guess the retail price on all this shit. Probably at least $750,000. A handful of jackets I had all had price tags of $2,000 or more. This is in addition to the stuff I got on Friday which had to be easy 40-50 grand at retail.

So net net for a 2 day haul I got (these are guesses, theres no way I could piece count today) the following - 99.5% ALL Ralph Lauren purple or black label and Polo vintage, with the exception of some Rugby :

200 jackets
100 outerwear including leathers, suedes, duffels and toggles, military etc
300 pants
100 sweaters
50 dresses and gowns
150 blouses/tops
like 10 shoes, all exotic crocs, lizard, etc
30-40 belts, including an INSANE hammered silver mexican carved leather concho RL and another sick carved leather one without silver (and lol at the fringed belt that she got from Lindas stuff lol8[1].gif)
10 pairs of shoes
30 scarves including a ridiculous bugle bead embroidered evening shawl NWT and probably $3K or $3.5K
assorted jewelry, mostly sterling silver, including a 1980 tiffany sterling bracelet
2 pillows
a few books

and the cool non-RL stuff which was like 10 pieces lol. A vintage 1980s the cure "boys don't cry" t shirt, a 1987 David Bowie tour T Shirt, vintage champion made in USA sweater, a pair of fucked up vintage Levis (small E but very cool), two pairs of Louboutins, vintage Oakley frog skins, and more that Im forgetting now.

BUT

the most amazing piece of this haul was balled up like a piece of crap next to the hot water heater. Its a (Very) vintage Ari embroidered Ralph Lauren carpet/rug. I have no idea what this thing is worth but its a goddamn masterpiece. its all hand embroidered in india and is probably 6x8. I took it immediately to get it cleaned and need to do some research on it, but I have a feeling this thing would pay for a good chunk of the whole haul.

My haul on friday was $21/item, today with over 1000 pieces, my take was $4 an item. FOUR FUCKING DOLLARS EACH. I cant even.

So needless to say, if any of you need a gift for your girl and she's a 2/4/6, i got you haha.


Heres some pics below, no way to do singles but trust me, its all primo.

Dude, if you're wearing a jacket, you never see the pleats. I think it looks contrived on khaki's though, so... yeah.

post #39627 of 51459

And holy shit spoo.

 

Sloppy seconds paid off!

A lot better than people bickering about pleats and threatening legal action.

You're welcome
post #39629 of 51459
I'm against pleats 95% of the time at least but didn't you guys have a fit over someone calling tassel loafers ugly not very long ago? Same thing
post #39630 of 51459
