Woah woah... BOTH of you guys are from toronto? Which end ?!

 

Like @capnwes says "STAY OUT OF MY TERRITORY" (or frenchies atleast)

 

Actually - I think I know the spot he goes to ( I hear big things about that store)

Seems like a busy area! I'm more in Etobicoke though. That main intersection has been my go to spot as it's fairly close by to me and has a few stores within a 5 minute walk. I tend to stay out of downtown unless I'm feeling lucky, haha.

The suit would be fine, although it sounds like you won't be out of place in a navy blue sport coat and khakis.

I also picked up a sick Aqua 5 mackintosh trench from the 60's a few months ago. Some of the vintage stuff is really nice.

i could be off base here (and completely wrong) but i pass almost all burberry - unless it's extremely recent.

"burberry's" is their old label. you can also tell its a dated style by looking at the notches in the lapels.

now if you like it for yourself, its not the worst grab ever. but just an FYI for next time.

(people more knowledgeable than myself: feel free to correct me if im wrong)

Hot tip: if you see this man, your thrift has already been pillaged.

I grab the more recent Burberry London every time if it's in good shape and cheap enough...even orphans. I pass on the older Burberry's label 99% of the time unless it's something special or if it's $1.99 day at GW.

PLEASE, study the current situation before going.   you are the last person the current leadership wants to see. i hope you can hold your own.    no, i'm not joking, this is my job. and you are a thrift bro, whatever the trivial beef. I don't wanna see you get beat.   even if you are a douche to me.  please take care.    can't stress it enough.

I hate to say this to anyone, because I'm a generally nice guy.

 

But....I can't just watch it happen anymore.

 

Dude, nearly every time you post you become more and more poisonous to this thread and to yourself. You can't even show honest concern for another individual without insulting them. It's time to stop.

Question for those of you more knowledgeable than I (99% of you):

 

Found this Burberry navy blazer at my local SA. It appears well made (fully canvassed, wool-mohair, half-lined with nicely-finished seams, sous-bras) but I was thrown off by the labels. Can't read the Japanese labels but I am guessing this was made in Japan. Any ideas on who made it? I don't think it's a fake because the construction quality is decent but what do I know. I'm going to keep it regardless but curious about its provenance. 

 

Thanks!

I was wondering how long it was going to be before he started acting like a worthless sack of shit again. I guess the answer is, not very.
