The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 1127

post #16891 of 124775
I finally scored a few decent things today.

-Ferragamo tie w/ asian silk weavers motif
-Thomas Pink tie
-Talbott BOC tie
-3 NWT J.Crew OCBD's in my size
-Seven For All Mankind jeans in my size
-Levi's 514 cords



I passed on a Harold Powell suit that was beautiful. Wool/Cashmere blend, ticket pocket, subtle pick stitching throughout. The jacket fit great but the pants had double reverse pleats and though I appreciate them on some folks, they look horrid on me.

Also had a heartbreaking encounter with some Adriano Goldschmied jeans. The store got the waist/inseam measurements backwards. 36/32's will fit me great, 32/36's will not.

Those are neat Harringtons, and it's good to see Harold Powell get some love. (I don't guess they're a super big name, or anything, but their Houston outlet actually stocks their higher-quality Italian made stuffs, which is both nice of them, and pretty rare).

What? Are they really? I guess it has been a couple years since I've swung by there. What a shame...they made some great slim merino sweaters. And some killer ties. frown.gif

That's why they went out of business.

I see soooo much Howard Powell stuff
but have never seen anything nice enough to pick up

All the sport coats I've seen are always fused, made in Italy or Canada, nice fabrics but the construction has never been anything to write home about.

In other news, only had time to stop at 1 store today, found a Brioni tie and a Brooks bros rep tie. Better than nothing...
