I've only been to Breck once, before we moved here. I could see the ski area today from the top of the mountain we hiked to.

Perhaps this ski season we will get back out there.

was at one of those discovery cancer thrift shops earlier today, found some cool books and then went over to the women's shoes and pulled up 3 pairs of really cute ferragamo's in excellent condition with boxes and i could feel the jealousy from some of the women in the shop because they were STARING at me and the boxes especially. you ladies have been here for a while with me and you can't spot some ferragamo's with a giant ferragmo label on the box? c'mon now, keep up.


didn't find anything too crazy but this jacket is soooooooo sweet. damn. wish it fit me. so cool-casual chillin n ballin.

I never pass up American Giant, personally. Don't make a killing, and I've only found men's stuff in black, but it does fine by me.

Yep, figured the label was visible enough, I've only found that one.  Bought one for my wife retail though.  She loves it and looks great in it.  I'm on the hunt for an L in any color.

Their heavyweight cotton offerings seriously are quality. I've had hoodies, moto jackets and one baseball jacket and they were all sweet. Never found any of the lighter weight stuff, nor anything else, so can't speak to those.

Edit: some of their stuff is more tailored (baseball and moto jackets especially), so if you like a standard full fit, size up to XL.

Found my first American Giant last week but it's a women's XL. Unwashed burgundy hoodie. Thing is super solid.

American Giant hoodies are awesome... I have a heavyweight one and a lightweight one.

 

The heavyweight one is great on colder winter days...

Anyone willing to give me a steer on some EU/UK thrift shops? I am going on a whirlwhind tour later in the month, and am particularly interested in any shops in Munich or London. I do not get to Europe often, so I really won't be stealing your good spots, and the karma should be exceptional! PM me!

Caguama shoes, anyone?  They are stamped 26.5 - very small men's shoes. 10.5" long from toe to heel inside. These are available and will not be offered elsewhere.

@Jompso
Found it. Spring/summer 2004 Rive Gauche runway collection. Released 2003. Thanks again for sharing the knowledge!

Found these while making a quick thrift stop while travelling for Thanksgiving (Canadian).

Two Canali jackets (50R) - my size. At least usually it is. Def need tailored for me. Not sure I should have grabbed first one, since it has some damage inside near pocket and unvented. But I was excited to find Canali in my size and didn't want to seperate them. 2nd one dual vented.

(Lots of unvented Boss in my size too, but left them)














Robert Talbott Carmel shirt my size.




Just 346 ones, but found these Brooks Brothers ties.

^^^^Both shoulders on those jackets are massive @dad2bandm. And not in a good way.

are you sure you are a 50R? those shoulders are way too big for you.

I wonder if it's Canali sizing? Most of my jackets are 40R US / 50R EU...including ones I've posted here before. Thanks for pointing it out. Sigh. I'll keep looking for smaller Canali.

It's not the sizing as much as how dated the jackets are. I believe the blue labels are pre 2004 and you mentioned one was unvented which makes it probably much older than that. Most of the jackets and suits, especially Canali from older periods will have very heavily padded shoulders as well as high chance of being unvented. These traits make them both 1) harder to flip and 2) not in line with current trends. There are of course exceptions and I'm still new to the game. Have had similar experience with Zegna. I would stay away from regular Hugo boss stuff all together unless it's a current label and great shape. The newer models with a slimmer cut sell ok especially if the pattern is nice but I'd put the overall construction of those jackets under Brooks Brothers or recent hickey Freeman and personally would not wear given what else is out there at eBay prices unless I was attached to the color/pattern and it fit well (I have one such SC). Maybe there's a nicer Hugo Boss line/label out there somewhere but I'll rely on Google/handfeel/my instincts to identify those when I see them haha
