everyone on here gets hard-ons over old-ass high-end labels, when in reality they'd probably look better by walking into j crew and plunking down $400 or whatever for a made in china suit.
EDIT: watch the Put This On video where Jesse goes thrifting with the Street Etiquette dudes. i'd bet money that those SE dudes would s**t all over (almost) anyone in this thread in terms of style, but one thing that stood out to me is the fact that they gave exactly zero f**ks about labels. all they cared about was whether or not the piece looked cool and whether or not it would fit correctly after tailoring.
True, it was more like I thought I found like a Corneliani Linea Sartoriale and then found out that I actually picked up just a regular Corneliani or something. Still a great find, but just a tinge of disappointment. I do agree that the SE dudes have the right idea in mind in terms of fit / tailoring, but at the same time since we're thrifting might as well try for the quality in terms of construction and brands
