I always check the women's blazer rack in GW and never fail to find two or three misplaced men's sportcoats. Today I found a dark navy BB "Brooksease" 3 button that had a very soft hand but it was a 42R and alas, I'm a 40S in their stuff. Since I was in the neighborhood, I also checked out the women's scarf rack and found these. Wednesday is senior citizen day so I get teh discountz.

I'm not married to any of them if anyone sees something they like but I figure I can make the copper Ferragamo work and the purple H & S can be worn on "Purple Friday". The pink Ferragamo is just cool because of its pinkness. I also found a striped Holland & Sherry (first H&S garment spotted in the wild for those of you keeping score) dress shirt but the neck was in the 17's and the pits were yellowed. Meh.

The Holland And Sherry has got to be my fav.

Today 2 very recent Oxxford sportcoats, both 46R so too big for me. The first is 100% camel hair in a tweedy herringbone pattern, the second is 100% cashmere birdseye flannel from Oxxford's Archive Collection. They'll be for sale.

On a sad note, I got that Henry Poole ivory dinner jacket back from the cleaners. I normally wear a 38 R/S and this jacket measures much closer to a 40R. If it were OTR it would definitely be tagged a 40R. So even though to make it fit all I'd need is to have the sleeves and length shortened, and perhaps have it brought in a touch at the shoulders/back (which by the way my tailor says would be very easy and affordable), I've decided that my tailor must be crazy and that I should listen to Lintman because jackets can't be tailored down by one size, EVER according to Lintman, and I'm just going to get rid of it. Sad really. What a shame jackets can't be tailored - EVER. tounge.gif

My iPhone told me there was a nearby thrift I'd never visited. I tracked it down after the funeral. I found the shirts grouped together first, and was pretty excited by just that. Most of this stuff will fit me.

2 Venanzi suits
1 Saint Andrews suit
1 Venanzi sportcoat
1 Canali sportcoat
1 "made in Italy" sportcoat of high quality (has the label I attached above)

2 Venanzi shirts
2 Ben Silver linen shirts
1 Paul Stuart linen shirt
1 Thomas Pink linen shirt

1 Paul Stuart plaid linen/silk/wool Harrington jacket (made in England)
1 Paul Stuart rain jacket (made in Italy)

1 Orvis navy Harrington (not from the same donor as the other stuff)

Awesome haul, Alan! I love it when that happens all in one stop!

Sure sounds like there have been some awesome hauls recently! cheers.gif Picked up 3 more things today. Women's Christian Dior Size 10 posted above, a BB Camel Hair 44R and a Zegna yellow shirt 2XL (but fits like a large).

 

 

PS - If anyone thrifts midget stuff (36S,14.5-32 slim dress shirts, or "Small" Polo's) PM me ASAP worship2.gif

Not really but out of the three shown I liked the pattern the best.

I just needed a purple tie for Baltimore Ravens event days.

+1 It's really nice to see this thread getting back on track in a big way.
post #16885 of 115028
Been a bit too busy to thrift much lately, and quick stops after work have yielded zilch but a beater Zara corduroy SC that'll be nice come Winter. But today!

First thing I laid my hand on in the first store I went to today: an old but not dated (or come-full-circle, rather?) Brioni SB peak lapel khaki suit. It fit wonderfully, if it was a little stiff from hanging in a closet for too long. happy.gif

Then I see the noticeable pinhole right on the right chest, and a wood-varnish stain where the pants were folded over a hanger for decades. angry.gif

Then a lavender Brioni for Wilkes shirt in great condition. happy.gif Except for the frayed cuff corners. angry.gif

Then a beautiful Canali houndstooth three piece, once of the nicest Canali's I've seen. happy.gif WIth a giant stain on the lapel and vest. angry.gif

Then two nice Turbull & Asser striped shirts with 15.5 collars, my size. happy.gif That fit like 14.5 everywhere else. angry.gif Excellent fit on the torso, but the shoulder seams were over an inch from the curve of my shoulder! When was T&A ever ultra-slim fit?!






Some days...
post #16886 of 115028
so i went back to snag the stuff i left behind yesterday since today was 1/2 off day there today. that corneliani tux i found is NWOT, but all of the tags are in the breast pocket! Also found a MINT very recent Burberry sport coat, Hickey Freeman/Loro Piana super 120s suit, NWOT HSM Gold Trumpeter VERY RECENT sport coat. Also snagged a NWOT but vents and pockets still sewn shut linen saks house brand sport coat in black, and a NWT vineyard vines tie, light green with the dollar, euro, and yen symbols on it. Looks to have been made for a company as an advertizing item or something. Also found a MINT massimo bizzocchi tie.

Ah yes. Something new to put on my thrift-wish-list.

I'm 99% certain that I've not only seen a photo of that tie before, but that it was in this thread (if anyone can find the post I'm talking about within the 1100+ I'll be shocked/impressed).

Nothing noteworthy on my end, however. Some burgundy Bass Weejuns will fill a hole in my shoe collection, but nothing else since my Kicking Mule Workshop jeans a couple of weeks ago. Consequently, I'm anxiously awaiting pictures of AlanC's score for inspiration.

I found this exact tie a few months back. NWT. I liked it, but let it go as it was a little too wide for me (pushing 4").

^^^and yes that was my sales thread that you saw it in happy.gif

Found a mint RLPL staple blue/white striped shirt (m), a pair of close-to-new AE Graysons (10EEE), and a NWT RPL crew sweater today.

In my euphoria I stopped by two more stores on the way home, but only came away with two snow sleds for my daughters.

By the way, speaking of inspiration, I had been in a thrifting funk for months. This was very much needed.


Congrats on the haul! I need a haul like that. I've been in the same funk.
