Pass of the day. A fossil fish, and Dinosaur eggs.

Found with snake skins, a bear rug, and a replica Samurai armour.

Thrifted a leather "Nicoletti" chair before leaving. satisfied.gif

Are you part Targaryen? Should have kept the eggs :) ^^^ 

 

I'm actually surprised at the lack of GOT talk on here 

 

Also way to go Frenchy with all the Pal Z sartoriale. Bit of synergy but I found a sweet tie with this label the other day. Forgot to snap a picture

Pffft. . . Could you imagine a guy, in samurai armour, driving a Go cart, screaming like a madman, with 3 Dragons circling above???!!!

I don't know if it is a tie lot. But it is certainly a lot of ties!

Soo much siilllkkkk.....Definitely going to start saving searches for tie lots...

 

On another note, has anyone figured out what the deal is with Suit Supply, because personally I'm totally not getting it. The first (and last) item I thrifted, I tried to make sense of in the store for like 10 minutes. Their 2nd hand market figures do not follow any basic rule or theory or even concept, in all of economics. Their resale to retail price ratio are leagues beyond anyone else, there isn't a lack of supply whether new or 2nd hand, and they're decent suits but they're Chinese made. I don't understand. I mean the suit I thrifted and sold went for about 65% of retail, it's madness. If anyone possesses this wisdom or insight so I can stop wracking my brain I'd appreciate it, because the fact that I am unable to figure out this problem is driving me crazy. Kthxbi.

There are lots of brands like that; Outlier, Untuckit, Mizzen + Main, Rapha, Ministry of Supply, Lululemon to a certain extent.  These are just brands that are just trendy and not a ton of supply on the second hand markets.

this. there for awhile, there was only 1 US retailer and the outlet was in the EU somewhere. SS was a SF darling and everyone wanted one...cheap pricepoint, great fit and details. Im sure it will dry up eventually and someone else will take their place.
