Our local GWs give you a week to return for store credit, but after that you are SOL

 

Non of my local thrifts accept returns, which has taught me to be a better thrifter and learn what will/won't sell/trade/flip before I buy it.

You're not the only one, then! Not a bad thing though. Hester knows his stuff!

Nope, never. Always had 7 days cash back with tags/sticker attached. After that though, you're screwed.

Cool - thanks for the info. I had no idea on value of these since there's so little to go by out there. You're right, they sound amazing but it seems that their use is so limited as they have special connectors that can only be used for the Beocenter system.

Oddly enough, the Orange County GW's only accept returns on electronics, but in LA you have the usual week as long as you have the receipt and it still has the color tag on it.

 

If it wasn't for the 1 week return policy, a lot of my wardrobe department friends would die trying to find clothes for low budget films.

Saw that exact same shirt recently.  You aren't in Denver, are you?  

post #40145 of 125472

Same.  None of the SAs in the area take returns, very few of the smaller thrifts do as well, and the GW only takes returns within 7 days for store credit.

Secondary note, who the eff bothers returning things to a thrift store?  I can count on one hand the times I've returned something to a store in general....Just chalk it up as a mistake and move on.

That Dunn & Co is side vented, huh?  I've handled 2 Dunn & Co. HTs just like that one, and I agree that the quality on them was amazing (hand stitched lapel like yours, narrow lapels for the age, super heavy/well constructed, and side vented).  Dunn & Co. (at least for tweeds) seems underrated IMO. 

 

Also, wish I had the cajones to try pulling off that Orvis since it's my size.  But alas, I shall remain cajone-less.

Went out this evening... First the non-clothing finds.

 

A made in Italy wood personal valet. I passed on one of these a couple months ago and regretted it. This one's in better condition and has cool casters on the bottom. The metal balls on the end of the pants bar at the top pull out with metal rods.

Also a cool bamboo parasol

Also left behind a snuff suede weekender... Made by / for Marlboro. Very heavy. I'm still not sure if I should have picked it up. 

 

Picked up this cool Leather Man surcingle belt with geckos on it. I wish it fit me, but it's only a 30, so it's available

But the best thing I found was this HF with Loro Piana Super 120's (really Super 130's) fabric. I noticed it first because this is exactly the same fabric on the Pal Zileri Lab blazer I found. I'm guessing that one is LP Super 120's too although it wasn't tagged as such. The HF is about a 38 Long and available, but get at me soon

Yep, Double vented, has a small hole in the sleeve, going to take it in to mend. Totally worth it.  BTW forgot, ....its 40R

Nataku,you only need the DIN connectors on the speakers end.once you have them you can connect them to any receiver by splicing the wires or using whatever connectors your receive uses.

they are fairly cheap and can be bought on ebay,once you have them though always keep them even if you sell your speakers bevcuse you never know when the next speakers will come along and you will need them again.

I've edited post 40k to include your haul.

Frenchy, you post an obscene amount of speakers and other audio equipment.  Outside of bringing your own wiring and rigging things up in the store, how do you verify that they work, or are worth investing in having fixed?  By the brand name exclusively?  I've never seen B&O or Paridigm speakers in a thrift, though I might leave them if they looked to be in cosmetically rough shape, with the idea being that the innards are probably as damaged.
