Found a recent nice beige glen plaid BBGF 3 roll 1, which is quite interesting.

The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 1614post #24197 of 1387281/27/12 at 10:28amQuote:+1 - same here. I think the only things I've bought from B&S since the switchover was a tie off Spoo - and I only looked at his listings because he was interested in a tie I had.
BTW, about shopgw - it's been mentioned before. There are definitely lots of flippers who camp it out. The only thing that saves it is that saved searches are limited, and they expire... and occasionally something slips through, like the Isaia I saw once in a batch of crap ties, with the name misspelled in the auction description. Needless to say, multiple people spotted it and tried to snipe, and it ended up going for like 50 bucks - more than the tie was probably worth.
My one score from there was a NWOT recent Zegna tuxedo - still hanging in my closet, never worn. Still, 60 bucks shipped... I was happy.
Oh, and I haven't been out much... hitting my regular two-three stores a day but not really finding anything. Did go back to the half-off-sale-day on Wednesday and found the sweaters still there that I left last weekend. Not quite up to the baller level lately, but I wanted to show you guys the Iceberg sweater because it's awesome. If anyone's interested in the Iceberg let me know, it's Made in Italy tagged XXXl but I'd say it fits more XL-XXL, it's just chunky. Kinda want to keep it though, it might make an awesome sweater to wear with jeans and watch football or something. Anyone seen one of these before?
The two cashmere sweaters: Lyle & Scott made in Scotland, approx. L-XL, J. Crew size L. Both available.

Yeah... I really know better... but I don't know which thread to post this in:
Can anyone recommend a cheap mannequin, or better yet, sell me one. I need to start flipping stuff to break even, and B&S is not cutting it.post #24202 of 1387281/27/12 at 11:46amQuote:
Yeah, I'd like to find one myself if anyone has recommendationspost #24203 of 1387281/27/12 at 11:55am
This is the one I got: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270689342977?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_745wt_1156, which I think is relatively reasonable.
I'll try to when I get home from work tonight. It really is interesting though...i didn't even realize there was a top button when I first saw it because the natural roll is so dramatic that it rolls back the top 2.post #24204 of 1387281/27/12 at 12:12pmQuote:
I've seen a seller on etsy who models men's clothing on herself. I think plenty of buyers would rather see that anyway.
Helps if she's cute.post #24205 of 1387281/27/12 at 12:16pmQuote:I found that exact jacket as part of a suit aboit a year ago. Same size, longer sleeves but hadn't been worn. Still sitting in my closet just waiting for me to rock it to work or sell it to Spoo.Originally Posted by hikari013
Then at a different thrift store I came across this RLPL tan 100% cashmere sport coat. Its a made in Italy St. Andrews job tagged 40R and slim. Its got a couple small stains and its definitely been worn, but its nice none the less. I thought it fit me well enough when I tried it on, but when I got home it looks too big, so its available if anyone wants it.
More pics and measurements (Click to show)
Sleeve: 23.75" with 2" to let out

You may have already tried this, but they pop up on Craigslist from time to time.post #24207 of 1387281/27/12 at 2:01pmQuote:
Exactly my point...one of us was probably bidding against you, and now we will have more bidders to fend off now that others knowpost #24208 of 1387281/27/12 at 2:49pmQuote:
It was super cheap, but does the trick. It can be hung from the hanger or mounted on a stand (not included). It is flat on the back so it hangs against the wall nicely. The seller also has full manneqins.post #24209 of 1387281/27/12 at 3:16pm
First pair of AE's hahaha. For 10 bucks? Why not? ;Dpost #24210 of 1387281/27/12 at 3:25pmAlright my fine smaller sized friends, Brianpore, Spoo, and rest of guys, as is typical, you are all a pain in the ass to find for. I mean WTF - how come I never, never ever, find stuff in your size? I was really hoping to find something for you, but absolutely nothing. If you guys liked Gap or Banana Republic, we may be able to do business, as it is, anything that even wants to sniff of size 36 - 40R/L Hermes, Kiton or Brioni seem to run away from me the moment I arrive . Heck, I would have hit the roof even if I found a beat up Gucci for one of you, but Noooooo, even that was not to be found.Quote:

Your home is entirely too empty to be a proper thrifter's nest. Where's all the piles of clothing sorted for cleaning/repair/alterations etc and why aren't your walls covered with suits and overcoats?
And don't get me started on the bags of shoes! Wait until she finds the women's shoe department. Italian made pumps in her size for $6? You're a doomed man.
My missus has found the shoe department. I am afraid to count the number of shoes she has, but needless to say she uses under the bed to store shoes since her closet is rammed with them.
My thrifted clothes, they are on the floor in my closet in a big pile about 3ft high. Dont tell anyone I said that, I want people to have the opinion I take extreme good care of my stuff . I do think though it is a fire hazard, so may have to rethink the clothing pile.
I know nothing about digital cameras, quality etc... What are good brands, minimum number of pixels etc? If possible, could you or DigMeNow thrift a very good camera for me? The camera I thrifted is just terrible, really really terrible.
Stone Island are an Italian Sportswear brand, mostly famous for their innovative dyeing techniques (liquid reflective jackets, glow in dark, etc etc). Their designs are quite nice for a predominantly urban streetwear type brand, and the quality is generally good. Stone Island are more famous in Europe, particularly the UK and Holland. Unfortunately the brand attracts the soccer thugs and local gangs, but that is not to its detriment - since many an Italian mobster would have been draped in designer clothing and none of us seem to have an issue with that. I personally love Stone Island.Quote:Originally Posted by Achilles_

Yeah accessories add up, I bought quality arrows and arrow heads a while back, it gets expensive!
Yeah i love the mechanics behind bows, I could relax with my bow drawn all day thanks to the 70% (or is it 80%?) let off.
Bow season goes both before and after rife/muzzleoader. It needs to though, that way all the bow hunters in Nebraska get a chance to use our single tree stand
Yeah, those classic bows hold their value well. I would have figured their would be a lot of ground blinds in Nebraska - and at least you could see the deer for miles I am assuming it is mainly prairie country.
Thrift Store Visit:
Went back to thrift store.
Asked lady there if they get Saks, NM etc donations, as far as she knew, answer is no.
Before checking racks, snuck into back when nobody was looking to inspect what was not put out, nothing there. Did so to clear my conscience so I did not have to feel the urge to check them daily – I know it is bad juju, but that store was not in a convenient location for me.
As for racks:
Shoes: Nothing worth a pickup.
Casual shirts etc: Nothing worthwhile.
Leather Goods: Used Louis Vuitton bag, close inspection revealed fake .
Ties: Nothing interesting.
Suits / Sport Coats: Absolutely nothing other than a nice Caruso SC in a size 54 EU. I am keeping it
Casual Jackets: Cleaned out, but did scoop a Luciano Barbera Leather Jacket. SZ 52.
Sweaters: BUST, Nothing!
Pants: BAM! They had a few decent pairs with tags.
Zanella Beige SZ 34 NWT
Ralph Lauren Purple Label Cream SZ 38 NWOT.
Ralph Lauren Black Label Black Chinos SZ 36 NWOT (obviously unhemmed, no tags tho)
Dolce and Gabbana blue pinstripe SZ 52 NWOT.
Ralph Lauren Purple Label Blue Bengal Stripe SZ 16.5 NWT.
Looked for various other bits and pieces, that store has been thoroughly cleaned out.
Overall, a good day. I drove there thinking that NWT Kiton or Tom Ford suits were going to be hanging on the racks, should have known better and kept my optimism tuned done to a dulcet tone.
As for donations, the spread of sizes I found indicate a single donor (clothes all fit in that 52 – 56 zone). This unlikely to be department store handmedowns, not unless yesterday was 95% cleaned out and I picked the 5% remaining. Also the tags are all different, clearly not from same retail store. It seems to me someone either bought a lot of stuff from eBay or an online haberdasher and donated for some unknown reason (I hope it was not a death or tragedy where a wife/parent donated this stuff).
