Yeah, ended up walking.  If it had the serial #, and had been 50% off, would have kopped.

I don't mind picking something up as an investment, if I can be guaranteed of a return on it later.  I saw this one and this one, and that's why I was considering it...

 

EDIT: I'm actually still thinking about going back for another look...but that damned ground off serial # is a bitch to get over...

I haven't been able to thrift much for the past few months aside from the store a couple blocks from me due to taking a new job. Its been trying to say the least. Love keeping up with the thread though too many good finds lately to even start mentioning them. A couple things I have been able to pick up though:

Emanuele Maffeis linen shirt. A new to me maker (might be good for you e-thrifters looking for personal items) has some damage thought I'd show it off before I take it apart to take a stab a making a pattern.


Matching pair of vintage ties from an off Savile tailor

What I did kop today (save for a few things not really worth mentioning).  Nothing available at the moment.

 
 

badonk-a-donk (Click to show)

  

NWOB AE Broadstreet, 10.5.

 

 

  

 

The biggest piece of McCoy I ever remember seeing...

 

 

  

 

How big?  For perspective, the 10.5 AE's almost fit inside.

 

 

e-thrift from a few days ago (arrived today).

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

I always pass on Uniqlo, but this toggle coat was decent enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the sad old days, when a bowling equipment manufacturer owned Harley (don't remember what years that was, but, the bad kid in the original Bad News Bears rode an AMF Harley - so - 70's-ish).

 

 

 

 

Detachable fur trim on hood.  

 

  

 

I am 100% sure it's real fur, but no idea from what animal.  Any clues?  Dyed raccoon maybe? Feels softer...but I've never petted a raccoon so not that I'd know.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Off brand, but Loro Storm System.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

Not even sure what I'm looking at here yet, aside from the obvious (NWT tincloth Filson jacket and waders / gaiters of some sort).  Came together but I'm not sure they were originally a set.  Will do my sleuthing later - that's half the fun! 

 

EDIT: jacket is shelter cloth, not tin cloth, Upland Waterfowl model.  Chaps are single tin...

@bros:

So what is the exact deal with those old school ties that are like very thin and small, but not "skinny ties", exactly....anyone know what I mean? (I coulda been had a lot of tiny vintage Brooks and Zegna, but just didn't know the scoop).

Found me some nice Hermes instead. biggrin.gif

Hey guys, anyone sitting on a pair of Womens jeans in a size 2? My gf is tired of her jeans from American Eagle so she's going to try something else.

Yeah, there is some great stuff in there. Love all the jackets, especially the Barbour.

Beautiful shoes btw!

I live in Ottawa. An old news ad shows that it was sold at Charle's Ogilvy's shop. Another member informed me that the shoes are probably about 70 years old and the company went under a long time ago :)
