The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 3137post #47041 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:18ampost #47042 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:24ampost #47043 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:28am
If this is what you refer to as older Zegna, you're in the wrong thread. This is easily within the last few years unless someone knows better. I still see this label at the rack.post #47044 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:33ampost #47045 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:35amQuote:
My mistake then, I thought the parallel to the belt line label had been around for longer. I buy all my dress clothes from thrift shops (because I'm a cheap bastard) so I don't have a good handle on what's current- I know the Disegno Esclusivo ones are quite old, so I assumed these were in the middle w/r/t age.post #47046 of 5750310/14/16 at 10:36ampost #47047 of 5750310/14/16 at 11:00amQuote:Originally Posted by winny94
I understand there is a (huge) market on those jackets, what I'm trying to understand is why. There are so many vintage niches out there that with very little supply and there is no market, so it can't just be a the vintage aspect. Is it nostalgia, did some celebrity rock em on the red carpet, etc. What makes them so desirable?
all of the above.. who knows what drives people sometimes. Their father could have worn that specific colorway of footjoy's golfing before he died of a heart attack.post #47048 of 5750310/14/16 at 11:00ampost #47049 of 5750310/14/16 at 11:07ampost #47050 of 5750310/14/16 at 11:19ampost #47051 of 5750310/14/16 at 11:58amThe vintage Polo thing is very simple .
The inner youths couldn't afford that shit way back when but now that a lot of them have made some money (rappers etc) they are buying it to "even" a wrong etc.
And of course once celebrities started wearing it ,it created a market.
ie ,red moncler puffer by Drake.
Same thing drives the vintage toy market ,boom boxes etc.
Parents didn't wanna buy you something so now the forty something's can give a metaphorical fuck you to their parents or society or economical structure they do.
Plus everyone knows shit was made better back when.post #47052 of 5750310/14/16 at 12:00pmpost #47053 of 5750310/14/16 at 12:03pmI took a day off work today with the aim of doing some serious thrifting but it was hard going. This pittance was from visiting like a million shops. On the plus side I also had a great burger and got my haircut.
Wimmenz vintage Levi shirt made in Great Britain (70s? 80s? I don't usually buy ladies stuff but thought it might be 'the good kind')
J Crew Lambswool Green Jumper
TM Lewin Merino Jumper
Recent Daks Shirt
Brooks bros BD
Gino Ferrari leather tote bag (cheap and decent enough quality)
The North Face fleece jacket (seen a bit of use but a great beater for me. Either way this shit always sells well for me)
Sorry for the horrible pictures but I'm prioritising drinking beer. Happy Friday gang.post #47054 of 5750310/14/16 at 12:27pmpost #47055 of 5750310/14/16 at 12:35pm
