Your size means my size.  I think you really don't want that very much biggrin.gif.  Kidding, that's an awesome find and looks to be a very attractive pattern - congrats!!

I went to a couple of stores on the way back from a dr.'s appointment and came up with:

 

1. Brown suede chukka-type ankle boots on rubber soles for Barneys New York size 11 1/2 D.

2. Brooks Brothers (probably by Alden) black leather tassel loafers size 9 1/2 D.

Both are in EXCELLENT condition... I don't get why people throw this stuff out.  Really?!?  -M-

Surprisingly enough, the the brown chukkas fit me quite well.  I'm a 10 1/2 C (slightly narrow) and they seem to work.  The BB's, on the other had, not a snowball's chance.  -M-

Jimmy Page is a star and we are just satellites. But that's all right.

The Tool cover is maybe one of the only songs whose cover I like even better than the original. Faithful yet original, and rocks so damn hard.

Nice!  Does anyone know how this stuff compares to Trofeo?

I know its been mentioned before, but reading the whole thread is invaluable for finding quality items at thrifts. Thanks to everyone who contributes!

 

Had a few decent finds last weekend, so I thought I'd share.

 

Found my 1st RLPL- navy linen pants sized 32 but let out to @ 35-36 (my size), got lucky someone gained some weight!

1st Brioni item as well- cotton "cannes" model chinos- my size as well (36)

Found this John Varvatos Star USA sportcoat- grabbed it b/c it was interesting/different, just about my size (I vary from 40-42 depending on brand) but a little big-not sure if I'm going to keep or not. Peak lapels, and wire in the cuffs lapels, and pocket flaps- strange-definitely more streetwear style!

My favorite, just in time for St Patricks Day (as some just mentioned above), a green/black houndstooth pattern(?) w/ blue stripes Turnbull and Asser sport coat- my size (42)as well,

Man, you had a good weekend.  Especially for a first timer!  I've been doing this a little over a month.  My first few times, I came back with a bunch of crap that I thought was great.  Congrats!  Also... that T&A is drool worthy.

 

post #26935 of 112321

Quick stop during lunch.  Hit ties first, got super excited when I started finding these, since this place is super low traffic and tends to get big hauls or nothing (usually nothing), and this was the first set of good ties I've found there.  Moved on and didn't find anything else, so kinda deflated.  Oh well, the ties are awesome.  I'll keep trying since they might just be slow to get the shirts/suits/SC's out.  Sorry for the crappy cell phone/backseat of the car pics, at work.

Arnys Paris, Bernini Beverly Hills house brand (have seen stuff from them before and it seemed nice quality so I picked it up), English maker whose name I meant to note and ask you guys about but of course forgot...I'll edit with it later.

 

20120224_152036.jpg

 

Baby blue Brooks Bros Golden Fleece polo.  First BBGF shirt I've found.  My size, but not sure I'll keep it.  We'll see after I try it on.

 

 

EDIT: Also this...not a thrift find, but an ebay find I'm super pumped about.  Don't care if this is a great price or not, I really wanted these bad boys and got them for starting bid, so I'm happy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/220955178428?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_500wt_1025.  Received them yesterday and they're in awesome condition.  Now just to figure out wth to rock them with!

post #26936 of 112321

Agreed.  So bummed they fit him...they're near my size and I'm jonsing for some chukkas.

I usually don't pick up Bernini, but then again, I'm only looking to flip on menswear.  They have Canali and Brioni make a lot of there stuff, but it will have a label saying so.  I'd usually pick that up, but it seems like most of their Canali is dated.  I've been passing on a bunch of DB or unvented Canali and Corneliani lately.

The Chukkas are C&J's, right?

They don't have a maker's name in them aside from the "BARNEYS NEW YORK" label on the insole.  They are stamped "MADE IN ITALY," though.  I checked Barney's web page and I don't think that they are anything from the current season, but otherwise, they are next to new.
