nice xenos, is jaeger a worthy brand? I've seen this brand a couple of times.  One time was a german made suit I believe.

German word but historic English brand. Very good through 70s & 80s. Then it declined. Not sure if it has recovered.

Well today was an almost day. Finally found the Harris Tweed (visions of $100 -plus profit on eBay). Looked at the sleeve and found a couple small holes. Then looked at the buttons...trashed. So I passed. Then I found a Brooks Brothers made in Great Britain wool sweater. Had a hole up near the neck. Thought oh well I can wear it casually...shabby prep. As I continued to look at this thing I think moths used it as Golden Corral. Oh well...and to add insult to injury...50% off clothes today.

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 facepalm.gif and huge 2 – 3” hole. A hole that big cannot be reweaved. Also too expensive at $120 ffffuuuu.gif . Pic of hole:

225

Ralph Lauren Purple Label 2PC Gray Chalkstripe Suit, SZ 40R. Why? Old’ish model made in England, and $90 price tag mad.gif .

Borrelli Napoli Double Breasted Cashmere Navy Long Coat (very long, way past knees), SZ 50. Why? Carried a shocking $300 tag ffffuuuu.gif .

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 facepalm.gif. 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 frown.gif

Went back and picked up the very recent (tagged 2007) Dolce & Gabbana suit separate on the advice of Nataku.

Also found this really interesting (pretty vintage, I believe) Lacoste/Izod sweater.  Seems pretty good quality, and has an interesting design, and is in immaculate condition.  I thought I'd hate it when I saw it and thought about flipping it, but I actually think it looks pretty good on me and I don't think I'd get much on a flip anyhow so I'll likely end up keeping it.

Only thing I would say would be the Edward Greens, for $26 + resoling might be a good pickup (depending on what a decent cobbler cost these days)

Klobber hits plenty of Consignments too, and those seems like consignment prices.

I hit consignments also. There is quite a good one in San Francisco that often has good stuff at higher than B&S prices though. Occasionally I pick something for a steal though. Consignments technically are not thrift stores, but they have one thing in common - 2nd hand clothes and occasional new stuff.
