Ok. Now that its been a few hours since I posted the Vicuna Kiton pic and I've had a chance to bask in the glory that is Spoo wanting something in my possession......I have a few confessions to make about my find today.
First, and least depressing: It's not 100% Vicuna, but rather 90% cashmere, 10% vicuna (hand of this fabric is f*ing )
Second, and the absolute heartbreaker: It's a women's jacket
Found it in a "boutique" resale shop that I never go to, because the ratio of womens to mens clothes is about 10:1. Popped in cuz it was near where I was running an errand. Would never have found it if they hadn't accidentally placed it on the mens rack. Despite the utter stupor I was in when I found it, I actually considered leaving it since A) its a womens piece and B) was priced at about 3x the normal thrift suit price. But then I snapped back to reality and told myself I couldn't leave Kiton Vicuna, regardless if for the wrong gender.
Given the vicuna content I know this thing had to be up around the $8K mark (maybe higher?) But damn, the resale market for womens clothing is absolute sh*t. I think for the time being I'll hold onto it, its a size 50 Italian (I think this is like a M-L womens but I'm not sure). Won't fit any women in my life - I may consider trading it if anyone here wants to give it to one of their lady friends.
So, unfortunately, I have to renounce any title as thrift find of the year (thanks Nataku), but hell, I'm still stoked nonetheless.
Some quick pics below. It appears very recent and in absolutely mint condition. Color is nice tan/brown herringbone (appears gray in the pics).
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'll trade you a bag of crisps for it.
