That's what I'm talking about. Thread needs more of this, less of everything else.

Never did complete Contra as a kid, too difficult. Metroid = classic. Maybe I will download an emulator to play it again.

Anyone here remember Ghost n Goblins on the arcade? That has got to be one of the toughest games ever!

Ignore this if you love pleats and have a generously sized waist.


It's not that I'm knocking them, I own 'em. But it's more the wading through "all" the dockers, I don't want more Dockers, I want KITON....Love to find a pair of "Bills", when I'm wading through the Dockers, I'm thinking Bills (until I'm past the kahki colors, then I want KITON)

Definitely worth grabbing if they're not dated (low gorge, low button stance, etc). If the inside pocket has the large square label that looks like the photo below, it's fairly new (for Oxxford anyway, seeing as a lot of them that I've found are pre 1990). I think they switched to this label in 1994.

259

Anyway, 43 R is my size and a lot of others on here as well. It'll be well worth grabbing them at that price.

Thread winner of the year award goes to.......

Seriously - a vicuna Kiton!?! That's the the grail of holy grails! Looks like some sort of coat/jacket to me as I can kind of see the sleeve lining. Retail on that sucker is what, $12,000 minimum?

I think Contra was one of the few games where the only way to beat it was to use the cheat code.

Found a Brioni suit also. Probably same owner. Size is 52. Price was $45. Believe all this stuff was for a big guy. Some was early 2000s and other early 90s.

Holy shit I thought I had a chance to at least win the day but good lord. I just googled vicuña:

An adult vicuña produces only 17 ounces of fiber a year, barely enough for a single scarf. “It takes at least three years to get enough to make just 14 coats,” de Matteis says.

I've gotta expand my thrifting. Are you all hitting consignment spots or something, I have finds consistently but damn I feel like I must be missing out sticking mostly to my GWs and few other spots.

Edit: Lol only this thread can make me feel bad about finding a Dunhill jacket .

Something a lot of people don't realize is the Kirkland stuff is often pretty decent stuff. $$$-Brand cookware, $1200. Kirkland-labeled of the exact same cookware, $400. $$$-Label wine, $75. Kirkland-labeled of the exact same wine, $25. Not always, but generally speaking, Kirkland gets their name on fairly decent stuff.

About the pants--if they hadn't said Kirkland, would you have bought them? Let the quality have its say, too.

BTW, what size is your size? 
 

 

It varies. My actual size is a 10.5 D, but I have a lot of foot pain (probably due to several hours of thrifting a day) and need to wear prescribed custom orthotics. So I usually wear New Balance 10.5 4E or 11 4E. These shoes are 11.5 E and have just enough room for the orthotics. I really struggle to find dress shoes that don't hurt my feet after an hour or so. I've come across several pairs that I actually love, but just can't stand to be in them.
