I've been in the thrifting doldrums lately. Too many big-time flippers and my favored chain is getting ridiculous with their pricing at every store.

Not a quality, SF-approved piece, but it definitely is interesting....and loud!

- Missioni Uomo zig-zag pattern velvet sportcoat. I seemed to remember that the wild colored/printed Missioni stuff did well, so I grabbed it so I didn't come out empty handed.

Also got a short-sleeve REI shirt for summertime casual wear and a beautiful Anne Fontaine blouse for my wife, which she later tried on and didn't fit her. baldy[1].gif

I found an old Par-Kerry 100% Cashmere overcoat today at an estate sale. Does anyone have any guesses as to the age? I've been able to find old ads from the 20's to the late 40's, but was curious if it was newer than that.

Passed on a recent Richard James Saville Row jacket separate (grey pinstripes), and a very recent (tagged 2007) Dolce & Gabbana jacket separate (also grey pinstripes) because I couldn't find the pants for either.  :-/.  Smart move or not?

Dang. Stripes are tough without matching pants, a birdseye or windowpane would be an easier pickup if it were a orphan. The Dolce & Gabbana would still be an easy sale if it's the mainline and in good shape. Head back over the next few days if it's nearby and tear the place apart. Also find out if it's a place that gets distributed stuff or processes it's own stuff. Either way, I'd hit it up over the next few days and see what happens.

Argh, I won't be back in the area until Tuesday...hopefully it's still around.  I think this place is pretty safe from other flippers, so it might still be around..I almost snapped a shot of the D&G tag, and now I wish I had.  Will do on Tuesday if it's still around, thanks.

It depends on the stripes. Pic of jacket, and it would be easy to tell. In any case, name brand anything is sellable (perhaps not on this forum, but anywhere else there will be someone who will gladly take it off you).

the quanlity back then was just unbelievable,  just looking at the discoloration of the tag, I would say this coat is probably from that era... Must have been kept really well.

How good a suit is Daks? I saw a Daks suit coat yesterday, but the pants with it weren't a match. I looked around quickly for the matching pants, but no luck. I know I've seen Daks mentioned here before, but I wasn't sure how good they are comparatively. 


IMO if its a nice, good condition and the buttons arnt crap, Harris Tweed's sell on eBay decently (if its a 36S send me a PM), but just dont expect to make $80 flipping it unless you want to sit on it for months. Take your quick $20-40 and be happy. When I pick them up they are $3-7 and you really can't lose money flipping a nice Harris Tweed in that price range.

Holy mother of god!

 

I found this thread last weekend. I've been reading almost non-stop. currently on page 896 bounce2.gif

 

Went thrifting today, picked up some ties (for me) and shoes. The shoes I picked up for my bro, but "they arent his style" WTF these are some pimp a$$ shoes!  Oh well, if someone doesnt want to wear something, you cant make them...Since I have size 12's and I can't use them, let me know if you guys are interested, otherwise I'll probably toss them up on ebay.

ebay just scares the ever-loving crap out of me, what with some of the rampant fraud people on this forum have seen. people in this thread, especially, often find great pieces, and I'd hate to have to even deal with half of what nataku has been going through.

Pretty good day. Zegna orphan 50R. tore up that thrift store to find the pants to no avail. Tried the women's. the dressing rooms, mens pants and nothing:

go back every 3-4 days and just look for the same pattern.  Sometimes they don't bring stuff out together.
