The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2836

post #42526 of 51108
Couple of the interesting pieces from today.

Gamo, Zegna, canali 1934. NA


OG felted wool, unlined, zero structure Prep school blazer? Letterman blazer?





3sixteen with great fades and a full log in the pocket bag which is pretty damn cool.

Can't believe somebody donated those 3sixteens. In case you guys don't know, faded to shit / legitimately worn in denim is like... a thing now on Ebay. Yeah, I know this isn't the Ebay thread, but still - people are legitimately now too lazy to buy their own raw denim, but want legit fades, and are willing to pay for it.

Yeah, it's weird right. These will probably get better than some nwot ones.
Dude put some serious time in on these. Repairs were well done.

I can't decide if buying ones that someone earned the fades in already is better or worse than the guys who sandpaper them.

Brag of the day: Normally the only brag-worthy Zanella is some flat front Super 1 billion fabric pants, but this is just frreaking awesome.

can anybody spot this maker tag? reversible car coat... seems like older zegna but no branded tags except for the loro fabric...

Maybe some selvedge denim expert can enlighten me, isn't it not very hygienic to not immediately give the new denim the first wash given how many people may have tried it on at the store before you bought it?

I refuse to wash or even soak my jawns until at least 6 months.

Really having a hard time finding anything about these / dating them, but they feel old as hell, way older than the Big E Levi's I've found in the past. Halp. Warning: Spoiler!

Sorry of I'm wrong but I'm 99% sure .

Frenchy is 100% right. I found nearly the same pair, pretty much NWOT, no wear or anything on them. Fit me too. I thought it was going to sell for thousands and thousands but wound up at something like 250.

Killer! Now I have someone to call so I don't have to leave decent shoes in larger sizes! fistbump.gif

I forgot to mention: I (or more accurately a good friend) am in the market for your high quality size 42 short suits and maybe a sport coat or two. He's got good taste, so high quality, fairly conservative, contemporary Neapolitan cut Italian stuffs.

Also, you ever find something you didn't know you wanted and then got insanely excited when you found it. That happened when I saw this. Literally shouted "God damn shit yeah!"


Whoa, more pics of that?

Yes. Extremely nicely faded APC's are becoming worth as much as, or more than brand new ones. Normally I look for the rawest, crispest, darkest indigo denim on the rack... but I'm looking at the lighter blues now.
