Rappers like gucci. Maybe they're trying to become the go to status symbol for the rock crowd?

The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2653post #39781 of 510396/29/16 at 11:09ampost #39782 of 510396/29/16 at 11:13amWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Quote:Originally Posted by leisurewear
Hi guys, newbie thrifter here posting for the first time. Got inspired after going through this thread and a similar one on AAAC and have been hooked since earlier this month. It's a bit intimidating submitting here with all the ridiculous finds but wanted to offer my humble victories however small with the group. Mostly have been adding the thrifted items to my wardrobe since I've had luck with sizes and also I think if I start going for volume/making profit it'll eventually suck the joy out of it all. All the below are true thrifts (from Goodwill) except for the pants.
Probably the high retail value item I got, 2-Piece Gray Prince of Wales Plaid BBGF suit, near mint condition. Fits pretty well and currently at the tailors to get some minor touch-ups (also an intro pic that has my face in it)Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
These two are what got it all started. Walked into Goodwill and these two were the first two items I saw, both fit well and have been adopted. Suede Captoe Brogue Oxfords (Walk-Over, made in USA) and AE Villarosa Tassels
This was the first SC, pretty satisfied with the fit and didn't take it to get altered. Jaeger wool/silk/linen blend. Pretty colors.
Favorite shoe thrift so far, AE Sanfords in my size, freshly recrafted (probably worn less than 5 times after recrafting)
MTM recent Tom James Executive Collection Gray Pinstripe 2-Piece suit. This one I currently have on ebay. The shoulders fit well but would need to get the waist of the jacket let out and the sleeves dropped. I don't wear suits often so currently leaning to try to sell and fund my thrifting addiction. PM if you want measurements. Measures to a 42R cut slim/very slim.
AE Park Avenues 10.5 C, available.
Found these Zanella pants at a consignment store today for $25. Loro Piana 150s. Going into the rotation.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Bought probably 12-15 ties this month (all $3 a pop). Below are my 3 favorite. From L to R: Old Burberry, Luigi Borrelli, YSL
And finally one for the wife. She is troubled by my new hobby but asked me to look for some artwork while I was at it. Limited edition Dalhart Windberg print from 1985 along with affidavit of limited edition for $25. Resale value is probably only around $150 but the wife likes it so it'll go up in the house
So that's my month in review. A couple other SCs and a heavy trench of lesser brands that fit well but not worth posting. Have a mental checklist of items I'd like to find while thrifting and hoping I can get to a sustainable pace and not go too crazy. I think I've stopped by a thrift store after work 90% of the days in the past 3 weeks.....

Found this cool Italian walnut valet on 4 caster wheels, 1950's era, by Ico Parisi for Fratelli Reguitti.
Don't know how reputable chairish.com is, but I found someone selling the same one for $395:
