Yeah, who knows. Thanks for your comments, guys. smile.gif

Just came out of the store again. A few new bits out.

Left:
nwt ems of masons pants, they wanted 12.50 and they seem to be one of those nice brands that doesn't sell.
Another polo rl italy jacket with no pants and bold pattern

Pickups:
Those Isaia pants - striped, not windowpane, but the colors are awesome. Sadly they had no more jackets in the back so the jacket probably went to another store.
Lands end harris tweed
Zegna wool/cashmere tie
A different canals proposta side vented suit that was put out cheaper
And an edwin nazario by cariso super 150s sc. The suit ws gone. baldy[1].gif

Why did you leave the PRL made in Italy jacket? Was it striped or windowpane? I love the PRL Corneliani stuff. If it would work as a SC and was close to a 42/44 let me know!

just curious what kind of a store is this regular GW/SA or like a privately owned Thrift?  The amount of stuff from one visit to this store is astonishing.

Anything in particular you like? I have no problem proxying for you if you give me your size/an idea of what you look for. My wife is always begging me to go to the thrift stores, but usually the best piece I find is a JC Penny brand shirt so I lost hope ffffuuuu.gif
Have you been to the "Goodwill Reserve" downtown?

I actually don't sell on ebay. I tend to sell mostly on the forums, (superfuture,styleforum) and etsy. Outside of shoes I never look at MC stuff ever. I don't own/wear suits, I look through ties occasionally but so often here they are just in a bin. If a place has them hung up I will look through them. I tend to usually just look for workwear (vintage penneys,Wrangler,Levis,Lee, Red Wing, etc) and then 'Americana' I guess is what I'd describe the rest of what I look for as.

If I find a Harris Tweed jacket, I've got a stiffy. Have not found one tie in all my thrifting worth buying either.

I went thrifting in Iowa City (which is kind of close to Des Moines, right?) and it was decent.

Then again, we have the second richest man in the world in town, and I still can't find anything baldy[1].gif

You do realize that Buffett wears notoriously cheap suits, and drives a Corolla... there is no 'trickle down' in Omaha.

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.

 



I sold one for $177 on ebay, bought it for $2

How could that possibly be true?

^^ I didn't believe it at first but I looked up "Harris Tweed" in the Sportcoats listings. Completed listings show these going for insane prices. Vintage HT jackets going for $152 with 42 bids! What the hell....

Plenty of cheap ones too though, it all depends on the pattern, and the way you advertise it (pics)
