While still primarily thrifting for personal use, I've been slowly accumulating (or trying to accumulate) some of the nicer pieces I come across for the eventual consignment mailout to one of you fine folks. It's certainly been an exercise in patience; I've come across far too many orphans (including a couple of very nice Canali brown labels) that several passes through the store couldn't reunite. Everything is available if something jumps out at you.

 

 

Nice feeling Etro suit with a wacky lining. Hell, it even fit until I put my foot through a giant hole in the leg.

 

Actually decided to go through the ties. Pop pop!

 

Oh ffs... (was gone a week later, so someone clearly thought the price was ok)

 

Further down the rack (for 1/5 of the price), as I was muttering to myself about the size of the bag of dicks I wanted Value Village to eat:

 

Beige silk D&G

Big guys glen plaid made in Italy BB

Linen Etro Milano safari jacket. Sadly it's a small.

A few more ties (PSx2, Burberry London, BB Makers)

 

 

 

 

 

Shirts (Kiton, Eton, RLPL)

Suits (38R Armani and 60R EZ Su Misura)

Finally, an orphan I just couldn't leave behind, despite a couple of small flaws that knocked half the price off (not spoilered because fuck that). 58R

I learn something every time I'm on here. Fortunately I didn't pay the tuition (this time).

You will... eventually. It's a right of passage. We have all fallen prey to the Chinese fakery wizards at some point in our thrifting tenure. It may not be an Hermès tie... But they will get you at some point. It's cool though. I keep my fakes as trophies. :lol:

Was excited when I saw these, but now am pretty sure I still haven't popped my shell cordovan thrift cherry. Pretty sure the hard to read stamping on inside says "all man made mat's" and the brand is Kingsway. Oh well.



Cool vintage coat that has no identifying marks but almost fits me, a little baggy for my liking. Has a few small issues but that comes with the vintage age.



New winter coat for me. Don't have a setup to show larger items yet, but it's a classic overcoat.



And this is fake, right? Most things Prada that I've seen, authentic and not, seem crappy compared to other name brands, so I can never tell.



Two woolrich, not sure these are the woolrich I'm looking for but grabbed them anyway.





Billy Reid cotton jacket



And Andrei Kirilenko's EZ Su Misura from Beverley Hills. Size 58X. The sleeves are around 6+" longer than my complete arm, haha.



Nothing really awesome but was a fun trip out with my toddler son.

What size was this? Pic says 52, so 42R US jacket, right? What about the pants size? Was the rip on the inside or outside of the leg? I've always wanted to play around with a leg/ankle holster setup...

Yeah, it was a 42R. Not sure about the pants, as I didn't get them all the way on. Can't remember where the rip was, but I was in that store today and didn't see it, so it's possible someone has already grabbed it, if you were after a proxy.

Which edition? All the US versions are pretty bland, as far as I know.

I've think I've read through all of his short stories + shorter novels now and really appreciate their meandering unfocused beauty so different from the typical over-workshopped American fiction, but was wondering how his mega-large stuff would read....(?)

On topic because all my books are discount/thrifted.

The AK47 orphan is awesome for collection purposes, for flipping though it may be tough. I grabbed a Kevin Love orphan made by David August a while back & couldn't unload it for the life of me, ended up donating it back since what am I gonna do with a jacket that goes down to my ankles. Absolutely gorgeous jacket though, to be rich :dozingoff: (was from his college days too, those boosters may have treated him well)

Was it just the lack of an accent grave on the second e that let you know it was a fake, or was there something else?

Original version in spanish:). Can't stop recommending his books to folks around here. Cortazar and Cabrera-Infante are another musts.
