The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2882

post #43216 of 51328
On my way out of the city to visit a friend I hit a thrift shop I rarely go to. Left there with 20+ pairs of men's pants from the 1980's from Matsuda/Nicole, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme Des Garcons, and Issey Miyake. Crazy pleats all over, lots of weird materials, low crotches, etc. I'll take photos when I can. Is anyone an expert on the Japanese designers in the 1980's? It's really intriguing stuff.

Previous post: "I just picked up a suit with that same tag. And it was made in Italy and has the zegna traveller cloth as shown. Confused me as it makes it seem like it's a different maker than Zegna proper. Insights?"

Yes....as you can see the tag just identifies the cloth the suit was made from. Just like all the suits you see with Loro Piana tags, you have to look at the size/material tag to see where it was made, and perhaps by the looks of the tag who actually made the suit. There are many many different makers using the Zegna cloth to choose from but only one of them is ...ZEGNA!

Odd... Why has she been allowed to behave in such a manner? If the crazy bitch tried that down here (with many of the flippers that I know), she will be on a soft foods diet for a while. We tolerate competition, but never rudeness or outright theft.

I like this "eddie" guy. Send him over here so we can play darts, get wasted. And party around Tokyo. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

He can keep the shoes, thoughtful people are my kind of people.

The Swag is real.

Hit up @easye. He digs it. I know a little. But not as much as you need

Early estate sale. Some teaser pics. Been looking for a blackwatch cashmere scarf so I was excited about that. Bergdorf vest is leather and cashmere lined. Can't complain when your total is 10 bucks.

I'm sure that @ATLjon is familiar with "red" - she's a real piece of work. You'll come across her sooner or later, @concealed, if you haven't already.

What are the deets on this "Red?" Does she primarily haunt the Buckhead GW? What is a brief physical description? What behaviors does she exhibit that would make her memorable?

^^The PRL tag on that scarf looks off, but seems like an odd piece to fake.

This week:

 

 

 

 

 

Land's End crunchy

 

Filson

 

Felt neither like Vicona, nor cashmere, and no pants, and holes, so left.

The car is STILL in the shop, but I got to borrow wife's car for most of the day. Didn't turn up much, but it was good to be out.

 

 

 

Super worn vintage Florshiems that have definitely been resoled a few times and even have a fresh set. Whoever did that is my hero.

Alden 663

Knox Hat

 

Unknown Vintage Jods, all i can read is "Made in England". Super small.

 

Mephisto 

 

 

 

 

 

Odd Tweed Vest

 

 

 

 

Brooks Classic 

 

 

 

Brooks Brothers Puppytooth

 

 

 

3 kinda dated sutis, but this was the last stop and it was a slooooow day, so.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best, yet least expensive, find of the day.

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have no idea. I know the workers there and she's apparently been coming there for years. Doesn't excuse it. Only other competition at that store is her friend, who's extremely nice. To be fair, my girlfriend was there and had to be talked down from sticking her since I couldn't. Sucks for her that I'm moving into the area as of next week and am petty as fuck. I'm sure there'll be more to this story at some point lol.
