Based on his finds, I am going to haul ass to Denver one of these days. Colorado may be a sleeping giant.
Any Colorado folks here? How do you rank your state for thrifting?
Kitontini and I are the only ones I've seen post on this thread. He finds all sorts of amazing things, but often his best finds are from a men's consignment store here in town, not a true thrift. That said, all of my finds are from thrifts and include Hermes, Gucci, Turnbull and Asser, tons of Thomas Pink, Zegna, Tyrwhitt, etc. No Kiton yet. We have an Hermes standalone boutique here in Denver, as well as a fine men's shop that does Kiton-level stuff, so the finds are out there. The only thing we lack is a critical mass of people who dress outside of the T-shirt, jeans, and Patagonia norms. It is a fit, youthful city, but one without much classical style.
I haven't thrifted with this much knowledge in any other state, but I'm sure I could do some serious damage in a more wealthy area like LA, SF, NY, or Dallas.
ROLEX WATCH? Shit is fake, guaranteed. The best watch I've found is an automatic Seiko I'm wearing right now. Retail is around $400. I'd like to know who this is so we can tag team some stores someday...if he's into sharing the wealth.
