Can someone make a list of these fancy jean brands? I want to surprise my teenage daughter if I can.

We swirled dangerously close to descending into Thread-Down #4587 (topic: Is DM7 really a front for Pesjik, and are his finds an elaborate ruse to rule the Interwebs?). But then we didn't, opting instead for a smorgas-bitch-board approach.
2. Until we decided to descend into Thread-Down # 4588: SDW vs MC
3. In the meantime, several people asked for picture/selling advice.
4. New guy joined with TONS of awesome shoes too big for you.
5. Several people definitively demonstrated thrifting's dead. But then others conclusively established it wasn't, a determination with which the first people disagreed. So luckily that's resolved. (Again).
6. Not-Frenchy (wait, Frenchy?) has resurfaced.
7. In unrelated news, someone tried to call Spoo out.
8. Somewhere in all of this, we learned that Natty Nataku, master of the ninja style skills/knowledge, likes super-vintage Sears Men's Store stuff. Which I find hypnotically enigmatic.
9. There's a Bizarre-O thread out there on Dappered. That's where Grendel's Clark Kent resides.
EDIT: Several of you beat me to it. DAMN YOU! THRIFT DOWN #4589 is OOOOONNNNNNN!
That about the size of it?

 

Highlight of DM7's finds: 2 sickness Brioni for Jack Taylor SC's, 1 Kiton for Jack Taylor SC, another Jack Taylor SC, Gucci loafers NIB.

I put up the signal asking for authentication help on versace and chanel ties. Scroll back look for the spoo-signal.

People hatin' on darkmatter7, but it's just jealousy. Then he decided gf and school was more important anyway so he's lying low. Fake Frenchy is finding Frenchy like stuff. I started a spreadsheet on eBay sellers who are frequent fliers here so we can buy from our peeps when we feel like it.

Capnwes has become a cobbler/artisan.

Baseball feuds are about to start.

Lots of people pillaged a lot of thrift stores. You'll get filled in by the others on the rest. Can you tell I am a reporter by day?

Andro gave me the shout out. But now we all have this to contend with:

Gentlemen, every man has his limits. I wouldn't expect you to know this, but I come from a broken home; a house divided. We are a Red Sox/Yankees household, raising our children, God Willing, as Cubs fans. We got married in 2004, the year of the broken curse and the bloody sock and all that nonsense. And our first child was born in 2007. Also, we're a Giants/Patriots household too. I come here for a brief respite and escape from the woes of the world, so there's just one thing I can't stomach: A Yankee/Red Sox THREAD DOWN!

I sure do wish the thrift gods would stop taunting me with Sir Pendleton shirts that aren't quite right... Found three today: one was shrunk too short, one was a hideous color and had no tag, and one was a beautiful one with 2 foot collars (I'm thinking late 70s) but it had a hole in the sleeve.

post #30761 of 102827

okay, in need of some education here. some of you are able to tell a lot based on a version of a label (older or current), will you be kind enough to clue me in?

You, sir, are BANNED FROM THE FORUM. Grendel, help me out, here.

 

 

In all seriousness, I just got back from the first-ever Braves vs. the future Braves allstars exhibition game. Let's just say that the Braves, um, looked rather poor, but Dan Uggla hit a moonshot, so that was cool.

Burberry: #1 recent, #2 old (I think ~5-10+ years old).
