The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2687

I found these NOS shoes in my size, a swedish brand called Engelbrekt. Below they're pictured in some scans of a book from 1951, their 50th anniversary

 

 

More scans from the book on the blog where I've found them, some nice pics.

The shoes were made in Örebro, the center of swedish shoe production back then. Here's a film from 1940 of another shoemaker in Örebro, starting at about 4 min you get to see how they make a shoe (in swedish).

I totally agree, you can't tell me someone would willingly donate these knowing what they are. Right?

That is very, very cool.

 

 

My sneakerthriftening for a size 13.  All new or close to it.

A preview of the cart, they're mostly collabs, all the new balance are USA made.  Didn't take a lot of research to know I needed to grab a cart.

If you need help unloading some of these, in particular the NB, let me know.

@txwoodworker some pretty desirable models in there. 

post #40296 of 51365

I think some definitely comes from stores for tax right offs. I see stuff with cutout labels and blackened out tags fairly regularly 

post #40297 of 51365

I always check the scarf section first, sometimes I find amazing hand made in India squares or cashmere pashminas. But sometimes, nothing...

 

I found this today, feels like hand rolled edges but the only way to tell brand is this 'AR' in the corner. What is it?

 

 

 

And some crisp PRL linen shorts for myself. Perfect for the humid weather right now.

if this speaker works, its probably more valuable than the amp. And if you wanna sell it.....lemme know. I have a few amps i could use it in.

Midcentury slat bench I found a few weeks back in situ

And I finally e-thrifted the perfect navy sport coat. 2 button, dual vent, working cuffs, fat lapels. Done.

Austin Reed. And agreed on the hand-rolling, no machine could be that inconsistent I'd hope. Austin Reed used to be pretty decent, I've got at least one grossa grenadine with their branding.

 

@eazye that "good" Pierre Cardin is unsettling.

^Blam!  Damn, that's good.  Dunno where y'all are scoring that art.  Make me feel better and tell me it wasn't sandwiched between JC Penney framed prints for $1.99

Thanks to the nice donor who left this Waterman pen in his coat pocket. Any idea how to identify? It's got some wear on it.
