Haha I had to do some research after seeing that. Cucinelli does some weird stuff

Ya, I just assumed that I couldnt leave it behind for $7, but ya definitely possible, if not likely that its an actual blazer. Crazy

Pattern rocks for sure.
PM'd.
If anyone else wants to know what I was thinking, PM me.

EDIT:
Oh, I meant to mention. Here's a shot of a jacket with the sleeve ends mitered. This means you have only 0.5-0.75 inches to let the sleeves down.


Compare that to this, which is a sleeve with the sleeve hem folded over, and with much more material to let out. This is actually a Fallan & Harvey with working cuffs, so don't assume you can't let down working cuffs (though it may look a little odd, since you may be creating an odd visual gap between the hem and the button).

Thanks to the women's section gods at Goodwill. Also, kind of sad when their prices are significantly less than other stores, most of the time.

Size EU 50, available in all it's gnarly/insane glory:

Someone needs to wear the hell out of this!

PS - someone found a pair of RM Williams boots in a UK8 the other day. Meant to PM you, so hit me up if you see this!

Thrifty, but not clothes:

Picked up 28 golf clubs for $50. Did minimal research to see that at least two of them would sell for more than $50ea, took a chance on the rest.  Have been very pleased with the results so far.

+21 more, and these aren't the ones that I knew I could sell for $50 or more.

Also, I know almost nothing about the equipment I'm selling, so if any golfers here want to point out any gross errors in my listings, I would appreciate it.

My birthday present today. :slayer:

 


ETA: Oh Heck, also pleased with the initial results of the half mannequin on a hanger as well:

It is good to finally get the things needed to really make the clothes look nicer.

Haven't had much time or drive to go thrifting lately. Had an hour or two to kill with my son, found one thing worth getting.

Pretty sure this is vintage forest service, as it appears it used to have a ranger patch on left shoulder. Size large, will be going up on that other site.

Brag of the day, arguably the best suit I have found (never found Kiton). Even comes with its own hanger. Brioni double breasted 150's

Burberry is mens

Not a huge golfer but i think you did really well for the price you got. When I played more I wanted that Odyssey Putter. But i would probably end up breaking it over my knee before it was all said and done. Best I didnt continue with golf.

Looks Like It. They stopped making for them in 1940 though I think. I was looking in there new catalog as they have some smokey bear stuff. There was a new version in it. I called they said they only made one for the catalog and it wasn't going to production. I was bummed. They did have the watch but 1k for a shinaloa watch is way to high even for a serious collector as I am.

Some stuff.

Thanks. That is a lot to sift through but if it helps, it helps.

You know, frankly, I don't see a problem with buying the sort of thing, provided it can be sanitized. Once it is, it's probably cleaner than The Real Thing, which cannot be put into the dishwasher. :D

I wrote quite a long reply to your last post, but I post almost exclusively from my phone, and The browser crashed.

The sleeves on the shirt he was wearing were fairly short, so he would have been showing a lot more cuff with another shirt. I got rid of a suit with arms around that length because it looked like I was wearing a suit for someone shorter than me.

But you are right, it's a lot about taste, especially about the buttoning point. And my taste runs to a longer sleeve. The pictures are interesting - I've found if you have a decent tailor they can do a lot, generally more than you expect. I wish it was a skill I had.

I can only remember seeing the pair I found on this thread recently, but they were a UK9, and are sold now. If they were an 8 I'd be wearing them.
