The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 1902

post #28516 of 115148

Alright, so my semi-daily bragging post is coming in an hour or so when I get to my camera.

 

For now, I have a question about something I left behind.  

 

I found 5 pairs of J Fenestrier for Barneys shoes.  They were in almost unworn condition, and priced at $20 each (Size 10.5 I think).  They seemed to be very nice quality, and sweet styles, however the information I pulled off ebay led me to believe that they wouldn't sell for much more than $20.  This seems ridiculous.  Does anyone know more about this maker, and their value?

I'm clearly on the wrong side of the country when it comes to thrifting.

So today I go to one store.  I was flipping through suits and sportcoats, seeing nothing but the usual Stafford, Cricketeer, and Jos A Bank.  Finally, I get to the LAST sportcoat on the rack, which appears very nice.  I open to look at the label and BAM...

Side vented, appears recent...  By the pattern, I knew it was definitely a suit jacket, but the pants weren't with it.  I look over the jacket a little closer, AND ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

I tell myself, "okay, only a couple small holes, easily reweavable.  If I find the pants its still totally worth it."  I frantically flipped through the pants rack, and ahead I see some gray nailhead pants in the same color.  SCORE.  I head over to the pants, and as I'm getting closer I see the purple label with cursive writing.  FINALLY my luck has turned around.  Then I actually read the writing on the label...

MOTHER FUCKER

 

Talk about wanting to punch Ron Cherskin.  I would like to take baseball bat to Mr. Flussers knee caps.

 

Obviously, I searched the whole store and never found the pants.  Still, it felt wrong to pass on a $5 RLPL jacket, so I picked it up. Maybe there's some guy out there with gray nailhead RLPL pants that has been waiting for this jacket to come along...
