THE EUROPEAN THRIFT BUY /SELL / TRADE / WANT THREAD - Page 8

post #106 of 321

Here's the 44L New & Lingwood suit. Cloth is dark grey with a fine stripe. Jacket is 44L and trousers are 38L. I bought it in a sale about a year ago and never got round to wearing it before losing weight. Meaning to put it on Ebay but too busy.

 

Original prices on the tags. I paid £235 in the sale. Happy to sell it here for £135 posted in UK.

I also have a few other goodies to clear out:

 

  • Crockett & Jones burgundy derbies UK 11.5;
  • Alfred Sargent black cap oxfords UK 11.5;
  • NWT French Connection blue linen suit 42L/38L;
  • Glenbrae red seamless merino v-neck jumper L;
  • couple of Fred Perry blue polo t-shirts XL.

 

All very lightly worn except the suit which is new. Happy to take photos and post here if interest shown. Pics of the shoes:

I'm not a fan of the style myself as it is a bit too old school (long jacket, roomy chest, quite padded shoulders) for my taste, and so it's looking for a new home. Fits like a long 50.

Pics?

Had some interest in the C&J shoes and the Glenbrae jumper. Here are details and pics:

 

Shoes

 

C&J for New & Lingwood bluchers in Burgundy Cavalry Calf. Same as the now-discontinued "Lanark" in C&J's version of corrected grain leather. This is a high quality CG leather treated in the same way as Cordovan during the tanning process by impregnating with cow's fat. (In fact one of the salespeople at C&J on Jermyn Street thought it was Cordovan.) Size UK 11.5E on the 341 last with Dainite studded soles and full sock liner (added by C&J). Very lightly worn as can be seen in photos, selling due to fit issues. Perfect bad weather shoes.

 

Bought for £249 in the January sales this year (see receipt). Will sell here for £150 posted in UK.

Jumper

 

Glenbrae seamless v-neck jumper in red merino wool. I have a few of these seamless jumpers and they are great: soft, comfortable, you hardly know you're wearing them. Selling as red doesn't go with the rest of my wardrobe. Worn once.

 

Bought for £85 a few months ago. Will sell for £35 posted in UK.

Somebody grab these. They're C&J.

 

Shitty pics, but they should be good:

Sup chaps?

Just a quick request - if anyone thrifts some penny loafers in brown or burgundy in size 7/7.5 then let me know. I'm also on the lookout for staple shorts for the summer and staple business flat front trousers in 30x30 for work. Cheers.

Haha, oh dear.

That's when you know a trend has jumped the shark.

As good a place to ask as any...does anyone know any decent UK-based consigners?

Afraid not, it's something we'd be interested in dipping a toe into, but not until we've moved house, and that's several months away.

Hi chaps,

 

finally got round to sorting through a big backlog plus shifting some of my own things because of lack of space.

 

Most of it is on the bay - check it out, if you see something let me know and we can do a deal off the bay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/suits-n-boots/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

 

 

 

One thing I haven't listed yet is a recent Richard James part-lined basketweave navy wool jacket. Slim fitting 40. Excellent condition apart from a pull on one of the sleaves and a couple of loose stitches on the back seam. I'll do it for 20 quid including shipping if anyone wants it. Some pics:
