The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 7334post #109997 of 1387287/20/14 at 4:25amI bought two of these at TJ Maxx. I'm keeping one, and offering the other to a forum member for my cost plus shipping. Size L, sleeve is a 34/35. The armhole is high and the sleeves are not baggy like you find with some PRL stuff. 100% cotton, heavy weight. TJ Maxx price tag is still attached.

Most of their stuff is made in thirds world countries. I had a similar style Woolrich jacket with a horrible cigarette smell a few months ago. You need a spray bottle and white vinegar. Spray the hell out of the inside of the jacket and put it in the dryer with a dryer sheet.post #110000 of 1387287/20/14 at 6:15amQuote:Originally Posted by highvoltorb

Thanks dude. I'm going to give it a shot today. I knew that Polo used third world countries for manufacturing (I used to work for Polo actually lol), I just don't think I've ever seen ANYTHING, let alone Polo, with a Made in Jamaica tag. Must be an older piece or something.post #110001 of 1387287/20/14 at 6:29amA few recent "vacay" finds. I put "vacay" in air quotes because I've been working a suspicious amount for a true vacation. Still, I have been surfing too, so I guess I can't complain.
Most of this stuff is already listed, but if it has no bids and you're into it, get at me.
Warning: Lots of pictures (Click to show)
I will probably eventually regret not keeping this.
You'll never guess who made it! (Click to show)
(Not sure yet whether these are poly or raw silk; will do the burn test)

Little e-thrift for myself, nothing fancy, but should fall nicely as a non-regular in my rotation:

With all the nice stuff rolling in, I still can't believe these would make it to Goodwill.
If they're made in Italy, they should at least be a few years old....I'd check out like '11 and below if you must know the exact season. If they're made in Portugal, they're newer. Googling the serial number might be the fastest route.
Wow, thanks! I feel foolish for not having done this before. I just found exactly what I was looking for when I googled the serial number They're made in Italy and from and 2009-10 F/W. Polyvore had them listed at $655 at one point.post #110008 of 1387287/20/14 at 11:02amTell me about this "I" "banking" -- this is something I could do in my spare time? With no experience?
I'm finding it harder and harder to keep up with this thread, and my most recent find is a plaid-ish Paul Smith western-ish shirt that would not look out of place with EG (why I picked it up).
Sadly, my Loro Piana days appear to be over.post #110009 of 1387287/20/14 at 11:09ampost #110010 of 1387287/20/14 at 11:29am
