I'd think that's even money with a tag with a crazy size. Or frankly any tag anyway, since anyone with any brains is paying attention to the measurements.

Top rows all T&A. About 80% of have food staining. Grab bag pricing though so, eh, I'll see if spot cleaning helps. Irony is that I had to toss a few BB stain resistants as they were the worst of the bunch, like the guy took it as a personal challenge.

And finally, Seattle is a shitty place to thrift! I went to about 5 or 6 thrifts in walking distance of downtown and everything good was priced to Ebay prices! Only thing I got was a perfect pair of s130s incotex that were tailored perfectly to my size at cap hill GW for $30+ 10% communism taxes

Well, they have internet, too. And they believe that they can sell things at the same price to their local customer base of thousands, as someone can on eBay, which has a customer base of millions upon millions of people.

 

Maybe it works for them. I've even seen ebay printouts at *garage sales*.  Usually, these are printouts of what someone is asking rather than for closed/sold items.

 

I try to stick to brands that I know are good, but which the thrifts haven't figured out yet. Alas, my locals just discovered that Icelandic Design sweaters are a thing. I won't be buying them to flip anymore. :/ If they hadn't done that, they'd have had a guaranteed sale. Now..? :/

Yep. I think he started at YSL when Tom Ford left in 2004, so he was there for a while.

Seattle is a great thrift town. You just gotta know where to look and when. I dont drive 6 hours round trip for nothing. Just gotta work the town before everbody gets off work.

Is there anyway you can show a picture of the other side of that tag, because I believe theres a factory serial on those that either start or end with season or year. I am 98% positive that I know who made this already. But I' ike to see that image first if your could, just to be sure

Yes. He did.

I rarely find $90 worth of anything at that particular spot, but the whole town is a crap shoot. I've struck out (often) and struck gold (occasionally) at just about every shop in town.

I came home with quite a bit of cashmere, but also women's stuff, an angora blend Coach scarf, a 1968 book (limited edition of 250 copies) of French poetry, and a J Peterman caftan.  The costumes yielded nothing.  Then I went to the nearby Goodwill and got...a single Charvet tie. Is that a strike out? The ROI for the amount of time spent was pretty poor.
