Just messin' with you. Probably because I'm jealous that the only Suits and Jackets to be found in our Marshalls are of the Sweat variety.  Nice score!

It's still a good idea to stop in once a week. I have come across Gucci & RLPL ties for affordable prices!

I do stop maybe every two weeks. Only ever see Donald Trump and U.S. Polo Club ties.

My dad totally showed me up at the thrifts today plain.gif Brand new in box coach women's shoes...

He thought I was nuts when I first started thrifting... then he tried it out and made a few mistakes. Now he keeps going on his own biggrin.gif Unfortunately he has no idea what to look for outside of brands commonly known to the public.

Hmm, I'll take a crack at this. Try describing them as having a 'slight drop crotch' and see what happens. That sounds infinitely cooler than old man pants.

Especially since I believe Spoo said they are women's pants...*

I linked my dad to the PTO article, but I'm pretty sure he didn't read it... I just instructed him that if he ever sees Kiton to grab it immediately...

*hmmm maybe I imagined that, can't find it

So found some good, not great stuff today and a jacket yesterday. Here we go. IMG_0749.JPG Donald Pliner NW sticker on bottom, more on the middle in a sec, and polo loafers that are about to get the 4 star treatment. On the shoes in the middle, i couldn't find any on Ebay, but they look unworn, and expensive. Here is a pic of the side and branding on the insole, seems distinctive so hopefully someone can help tell me wtf these are worth/ make an offer :). IMG_0750.JPGIMG_0751.JPG Serge Blanco? IMG_0752.JPG baby billionaries, or bad boy billionaires or someshit like that. I think they are terrible, but these are new and going for a lot on ebay. IMG_0754.JPG Are there any really, really big men on this forum who could use a NWT brooks brothers? Snagged cause it was NWT, and an unheard of size... Brianpore, if you want to cut costs, I think you could live in this thing. Finally, a slubby norman hilton jacket I think is cool as hell, but wont fit me :(. Everything avaliable. IMG_0755.JPG IMG_0756.JPG Jacket is a hunter green, but in the close up it just looks brackish, sorry.

Yapre shirts?  Seem nice - good fabric and construction... extra thick MOP's... somewhat positive review here on SF.  Had a monogram, so I bought it to take the buttons.  Any of you guys ever run into these shirts and if so, opinions?

 

Also, Via Pietra made in Italy shirts?  Same high end features.  Opinions?

I can't help you with what the red high tops are worth, but I could tell you what I would pay for them if they are my size. What size are they?

Y'apre shirts are sold at Saks, AFAIK. They're reletively expensive and the ones I've come across were MTM. I think retail was around $350-ish. Nice stuff.
post #35831 of 110485

The Yapre does seem to be MTM because it does not have any sizing info.  I might have tried to do something with it if it wasn't monogrammed on the breast pocket.  I hate conspicuous monograms.  censored.gif

Those trainers look pretty sleek. Wat size?
post #35833 of 110485
No size listed but im 99% sure they are a 10m, as are both others. Measurements on any item requested
post #35834 of 110485
The middle ones are driving shoes. The logo on the side is three pedals. I can't really read the name or anything, but look well made. I would definitely be interested in them if they are around a us10.5.

edit: nvm. I looked up Serge Blanco. I guess that's his logo. They at least look like driving shoes, but I'd have to see more pics to be sure.

highlight was this: a mint condition Pringle cashmere v-neck sweater, $1.55
store mis-labeled it an XL, it's a size 40 but fits my size 38 torso perfectly.
