Great pattern, nice fit even.  Love that.  Glad I'm not the only one to thrift shop in a suit. (assuming you weren't just wearing a shirt and tie.)

Nice to see someone in here buying clothes for themselves instead of reselling.

-and that people are still offended when someone comments on the thread being more flip than thrift far too often.

ChetB's Awesome in store fit pic demonstrates what we are all about. Sure, he prolly grabbed a few extra's to offer to other members. Or kopped something too good to pass on regardless, and will flip that to cancel his own fit costs. Or even get infront. But all said and done? There's a guy in a thrift shop. Posting a fit he thrifted in the shop mirror. Looking dang good, on a budget. fing02[1].gif

I have too many clothes. And they all came from the thrift. And none of them are stylish. :/

Time to dump it all and start over. smile.gif

Some crappy pics of some of the stuff found over the past couple weeks. Lots more fodder but I have no desire to take pics. I apologize for not spoilering anything.
Most of what I find (~90%) is for personal use with the other 10% funding this hobby.

PRL Corn sc, Emporia Armani Mr A Line sc (fits perfectly, not sure on this line in level of quality but I like it), various coats (J Crew, Nautica, Hilfiger, etc), Max Lunar 90s, Prestige 3 low, NB 993 (USA made), red wing 607 work boots, AE Hillcrest,Marty McFly Guess 1986 USA made, EZ camelskin belt, etc.





























I can't decide if I like this pendant lamp. Seems MCM but not sure I like the chain holding it up, maybe replace with strong wire?

I feel like a lot of us do buy a lot for ourselves, but perhaps it's just not often photographed / shared? Time constraints prevent me from photographing most of my personal grail cops.

I've got too much myself... Trying to sell it down. But I have been getting things for the wife and daughter. But figured not worth posting. How many Patagonia Synchilla T-snaps does a high school junior need? I lost count around 10, she even took the one my size.

I don't know much, but gloves I can help with. Many MLB players have gloves made for other positions. Kendall was a very athletic catcher and did play a little outfield. If a player has a good relationship with the glove Rep, they often hook up the player with an extra 'shagging' glove. Your glove looks to be a Rawlings Pro Preferred infield size, so either Kendall was being prepared if his team needed him to fill at third, or he had it to play catch with his kids.

Kendall started 27 games in the outfield and I'm sure when he's warming up he doesn't use the catchers glove always...I'd have snagged it to add to my office collection of baseball memorabilia.

Been very slow in the UK for a while, but found a visitor to these shores from over the Atlantic, that I recognised from these pages. Any good?

 

 

and below is something I've been after a while. Only a cheap pine version, but £4 and I hope all the bits are there!

Nice looking Pendleton. There is some interest but best for personal use.

Buying used clothes for others rather than for ourselves is thoughtful.

Paul & Shark linen, Patagonia, Prada, Billy Reid

If someone will stock my thrifts with brands, labels and styles that I like and fit me I'll be glad to shop for myself. Until then, flip city.
