Due to the size of my post, I will do it in two parts, first part is stuff I missed out on, and second part stuff I obtained. This is all based on my long weekend thrifting. I covered an area about 200 miles radius from where I live, must have clocked close to 1000miles over 4 days.
Please note, none of this stuff below I picked up - reasons are given.Is this worth the price and effort in driving all over creation to pick up?
Dior Homme Light Grey 2PC Suit, SZ 52. Why? Leather lapels
and huge 2 – 3” hole. A hole that big cannot be reweaved. Also too expensive at $120
. Pic of hole:
Ralph Lauren Purple Label 2PC Gray Chalkstripe Suit, SZ 40R. Why? Old’ish model made in England, and $90 price tag
Borrelli Napoli Double Breasted Cashmere Navy Long Coat (very long, way past knees), SZ 50. Why? Carried a shocking $300 tag
Kiton Dress Shirt, SZ 15.5. Why? Absolutely trashed condition.
Hermes crewneck Cashmere Sweater, SZ M. Why? Made in Scotland (Hermes only make in France or Italy), therefore obvious fake, although surprisingly good quality for a fake. They also wanted $60 for the fake
. EDIT: I cant say for sure now it was fake, just backdated in SF with search and it seems not everything is made in France or Italy. Is $60 too steep for an old sweater, particularly one that is risky?
Attolini Navy Windowpane Sport Coat, SZ ~ 44R. Why? Sleeves too short (about 22”), came halfway up my arm between wrist and elbow, untailorable problem and there was perhaps only ½ inch of fabric to let.
Edward Green Oxford Wingtips, SZ 9D. Why? $26, no laces, and needing new leather sole.
Prada Black Oxfords, SZ 9D. Why? $26 and never seen a shoe tree Edited by Klobber - 11/15/11 at 6:08pm
