Whoever can help me figure out what this is gets a tie. I think it has something to do with horses? It's made of carbon fiber.

One of the coolest Boss pieces I've ever found.

@barrelntrigger was kind enough to pass on this SICK 100% CASHMERE SC but unfortunately my monkey arms are too long. Passing on for a pittance.

Vintage PRL linen SC marked 39L but better for a 40-42L

My size (10.5) but I doubt I'll ever wear them over my EGs, so available if someone needs them.

Found two of these RLBL Belstaff-esque jackets in my size. The profit from one was more than enough to cover one for myself. smile.gif

First edition history of sneaker culture


Super rare map of Long Island...that some moron shellacked. I imagine this hung in one of the local seedy sports bars since the '70s.

This one was a total gut-feeling pickup, because it was unsigned. I actually had it looked at by a professional. Turns out it's a mid-century American folk art piece, artist unknown. It looks killer hanging up behind that Thorens from @Nataku icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Two super-rare editions of art deco-era illustrations by Major Felten. One from the same series sold for over $300 at a dealer. Wish I'd found the other one--it's quite striking. Were I to sell these, I should be able to get near that, but they won't be for sale 'til I'm long dead. smile.gif



The Kitons I had offered up, plus an unlined GaGa, and some TF reading glasses I picked up for myself at deep discount. (My eye doctor kept telling me I was reading too much and putting too much strain on my eyes...One of the last steps to becoming the geezer I am at heart.)

e-thrift-ish. I got a damn good deal on it, but still paid a bit. I found it after finding out I CLEP'd out of my college foreign language requirement. It cost me way less than the 8 credits I received from CLEP would have. I fucking love this thing. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

2/3 of a madras patch 3 piece suit! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Picked up this Zegna 100% linen coat at Marshalls on second-yellow tag clearance. my size icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif



Vintage Polo goodness


Saw mention of Davide Cenci. House label stuff is always made by top firms. Found this sick navy chalkstripe flannel by Cantarelli in my size icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif



Rugby skull & crossbone cords...yep, my size icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Also found two of these French made Krups juicers. Again, the profit from one more than covered one for me smile.gif


Cool belt for me. Realized later the name of the company "a tail we could wag" is from a WH Auden poem. Perfect.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

e-thrifted this Zegna from a local flipper for less than dinner for two at Chili's. Silly noob.


Vintage 100% Silk Escada shirt. This is going to a friend.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





This RLPL coat is almost exactly the style of the Loro Piana storm system coat I'd been looking for. Plus my size...and the profit from the one RLBL from earlier not only covered the one for me, but covered this one, too. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The stuff I picked up for myself at the Mashburn sale


Why you should always check consignment shops. Super recent, with hanger AND garment bag for less than the PRL x Corneliani that was hanging next to it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

e-thrift Sulka shirt studs and cufflinks. Listing never mentioned 14k but I had a feeling. Got 'em super cheap. Will be used by me until some gent purchases them.

Another reason to check consignment. RLPL 100% CASHMERE flannel trousers in my size for $30!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


One of the most amusing Hermes ties I've found.

I went thrifting this morning when I finished my night shift. It´s been a good haul. Not really in term of grails but in term of quantity! PS there's one grail (to me) in the bunch, I let you guys know find out what it is!
 

Paul & Shark polo, made in Italy. Forgot to upload a picture of the actual garment:

Giorgio Armani le Collezioni striped shirt. Legit? (I've never seen it with 'le' before 'Collezioni' and there seems to be no other labels):

Barbour flannel shirt:

Polo Ralph Lauren knit cardigan, pretty chunky. Legit? (PRL seems like one of the easily faked brands):

2 Lanvin ties, one from France, the other from Canada. I know Lanvin's value is unpredictable because they've been thru phases. What do you guys think about these 2?:

Perhaps the first item is to hold the carrot in front of the horse's mouth like in cartoons  - provided of course that said carrot has a ring or carabiner attached to fasten this rod to :)

Yeah I've seen that on a few Stefano Ricci Luxury Collections. There's usually one on the keeper too.

They're just cheap swarovski crystals. Parents ran a custom jewelry wholesale place years back when I as a kid and you could buy a bag of'em for a dollar.

HAHA I cheated, I just wrote Orvis customer service with the picture :lol:

 

Quote:

Hello Robert!

 

Thanks for the photo! That item is the LeashMaster Training Leash (item 4Y0E) which we sold for $49.00 and once offered on sale for $19.00. We offered this item in 2012 with the following description:

 

An innovative solution that prevents unwanted jumping. A dog can generate seven times its body weight when pulling against a leash. The LeashMaster incorporates a lightweight graphite shaft, which provides the leverage needed to help you maintain precise control of your dog at all times, eliminate jumping, and keep your dog close while delivering commands. Attaches like a standard lead and features a comfortable foam grip.

 

I hope this information is helpful!

I found a Paine piece a couple weeks ago, embarassed to say I walked by it for a couple weeks before i noticed how nice it was.  My little bit of research said that he worked for Anthony Sinclair and personally did some pieces for James Bond (Connerry era).  Nice find!
