Great finds!! Are you sure you didn't go back to tonylumpkin's thrift shop?

At any rate, that Kiton suit probably retailed for well more than twice what the Lobbs did, so... as usual, well done sir!

Fall is in the air (well, at least here, only figuratively), but the thrifting seems to be heating up!

Nice finds, pejsek.

Here are a few of my latest finds.
Navy blue micro-herringbone Kiton suit; 3/2 sb w/ twin vents. I found the jacket first, but it took me another thirty minutes or so to find the pants which were priced separately. In my least tolerant moments I hate this sort of lazy behavior on the part of the thrift store staff. But then I remember just how much laziness is our friend. A very useful suit, I suppose, if a bit sedate. The price, however, was right. Let's just say I got back some change from a 10 and a 5.




Ferragamo Tramezza lizard loafers. Well, why not? I actually really like these shoes. They're the first Tramezzas I've seen in person and they do seem to be very nicely made. Classic Florentine split-toe style and the lizard is a nice twist.




Finally, a couple of T&A bespoke shirts. I really like checks. These have the classic three-button cuff and are nicely darted in the back. Dig the pattern matching. As luck would have it they fit great. The first one is Sea Island cotton. $4.25 each.




Fall is in the air. Happy thrifting everyone!

Now this is what I aspire to. Not just the one time flash in the pan, but truly wonderful finds on a consistent basis. Well done!

Are there any stores like these in the San Jose, CA area!?!?
post #1235 of 118230
with towns like Saratoga, Los Gatos, Cupertino, etc nearby, you better believe San Jose is getting stuff like this.

rich people are like insects, they are everywhere...

I had a dream that I thrifted a custom Versace suit made for Elton John. Purple herringbone with shirt-style lapels and a gold pinstripe. The inseam on the trousers was 41".

Maybe they were for the platform boots?

I thought to myself in the dream "wow, Elton John sure is a tall MF"

I found a black 70% silk 30% cotton dress polo by Harolds today at my southern thrift in nashville in excellent condition, they have a gray wool suit there also but they want 80 bucks for it because its brand new by evan picone (sorry about the spelling)
post #1244 of 118230
Got my best ebay buy yet in the mail today. A tweedy 90/10 S120 wool/cashmere blend, nice and soft, with a brown field and light blue windowpanes by Chester Barrie. Nice buttons, nice handwork on the buttonholes, and just about perfect fit. Advertised as NWOT; I don't know that this is true, but nothing about the condition of the jacket suggests otherwise.

$73, shipped.

Pics as soon as I find my USB cable.

Few handfuls of ties incl. a bunch of very recent Versace scarf-prints, Brioni, Charvet, Faconnable (made by Breuer I think), Etro, Ricci, Talbott BOC, Bullock & Jones, etc
Lots of dress shirts (a lot of Zegna, Brioni, Talbott Bespoke, etc)
100% cashmere Saks Fifth Avenue overcoat, camel-colored
