Is an estate sale like a yard sale but for someone with a bigger house?

Also found a NWT Canali tie, two Borrelli shirts, aMartin Greenfield S/C and a bunch of other goodies which I should have pictures and listed tomorrow.


Did you grab the pants? I'll take solid colored pants from isaia any day smile.gif

Really?

An estate sale is a sale to liquidate the items remaining after a person has died.

Haven't found much of anything in a few weeks but had 2 finds in a couple stops today:

APC black gingham shirt, size L but a bit small so it fits me. Nice and heavy for the colder months.

233

John W Nordstrom Cashmere sportcoat, no size marked but fits me almost perfect (not sure if I'm keeping it yet)

Either that or they are doing some severe downsizing or moving into a senior home. This is basically it; selling off most of the contents of the home.

Hit a shop while running a couple errands today. Nothing mind blowing, but definitely cool finds.

Vintage Red/Black Plaid hunting jacket/pants by Woods Bag & Canvas of Canada. I'd guess there are from the 50's, judging by how narrow the belt loops are. I've found a couple jackets like this here and there, but to find the pants as well is a rare find!

Also found these Ferragamo ties amongst a bunch of Ferragamo-esque Joseph A Bank ties.

Was this from a Nordstrom Rack or something? That's a ton of money for thrifts. Don't think I've ever spent that much at a thrift. My most expensive haul was from a thrift that acquired most of Carl Pohlad's wardrobe. Cashmere Brioni, MTM Oxxford, Cucinelli and tons of other high end labels.Couldn't leave this stuff behind and large cart-load.Spent about $225 that day.

Today they were just putting things out at Goodwill and I stumbled onto a nice tie collection plus I got a (most likely fake) surprise in a pocket of a suit I purchased.

Ties left behind

2 Canali - both were beige-ish/gold
Hugo Boss - Very dark beige with orange and green circles
Armani - Chocolate brown with dark brown/black circles
Ted Baker - Orange with woven orange/dark orange circles
Zegna - Red with blue dots
Altea - Geometric in gold and blue
Valentino - Red with some kind of like pink/purple/white candy cane pattern repeating through it
Fendi - Light blue with repeatng F symbol
NWT Robert Talbot - Plain solid beige
Calvin Klein - Black and red, I only mention this because it was $12.00 while the Charvet I found was $4.00

I also left behind a vintage brown tweed DB suit that had patch pockets because of what appeared to be a scorch mark, a real Gucci duffle bag because it had a broken zipper, and a Burberry London purse because my girlfriend would've hated it.

Purchased
2 Zegna - 1 light blue and 1 burnt orange, both are really nice
Charvet - Gold/Black
I also purchased a solid grey DB suit that had all the tags ripped out of it and what I'm guessing is a fake Cartier Tank watch in the inside jacket pocket.

Found previous weeks (now with pix)
Robert Talbot Best of Class - Purple paisley with green/blue
Banana Republic - Navy blue wool tie
3 shirts from the same (I'd guess) custom shirt maker, Arthur & C. that fit me perfectly
Gilcrest - Charcoal DB with blue and red windowpane (probably dated but I really liked it)
Really cool retro Ziari sunglasses, I'd never heard of the brand before but from what I found on Google they were incredibly well made

If you're almost positive it's real, you should have grabbed it if the price was right. Retail on these is insane, so is resale. A zipper is an easy fix...


That Cartier is definitely fake, but you can't really beat free!

They were asking iirc $200 or $250 for the bag but it wasn't worth chancing it if I'm wrong and taking into consideration the ratty assedness of the zipper area.

And yeah I pretty much figured it was a copy but even still for a moment it was an exciting surprise, usually all I find in suit pockets is the occasional used and abused handkerchef. Not sure if I should fix the bracelet, put a battery in it and use it as a beater or toss it. Like you said, you can't beat free.

Yikes! I thought it was maybe $5-$10. Maybe $20.....
post #19828 of 110179
Found a couple nice Zegna shirts and blue label polo pants today, but
I passed on the $10 Thomas Pink shirt
