Report from the field:  (Dallas, TX.  Days 2 - 4)

 

Loro Piana LS chambray shirt.

Church's brown leather bluchers.

Chester Barrie Black blazer.

Boglioli COAT navy blue blazer 38 R (my size!).

Charvet, Sulka, and a bunch of misc. ties.

Coach belts and misc. belts.

Vintage Polo by Ralph Lauren Indian bleeding cotton madras vest w/ smoked MOPs.

Robert Graham shirt.  (It is extra obnoxious... possibly even a limited edition.)

Billy Reid LS brown shirt.

Neiman Marcus women's leather hat.

Ermenegildo Zegna Dad jeans.

Burberry | London, Ermenegildo Zegna, and a bunch of misc. shirts.  Some vintage, some not.

 

There's actually a lot more, but that's all I can remember off the top of my head.  Everything is tentatively unavailable until I get back to Boston and sort it out.  Overall, the thrifting is good in Dallas.  My friend and I only went to places in Plano and Dallas, but there were a lot of places in Garland and some other surrounding satellite cities that we didn't hit.  

 

A few things I noticed about thrifting in Dallas that might be useful to know:

 

  1. I never left a store empty-handed.  The most I spent at one store was about $70 and the least was .54.
  2. There are a lot of thrift stores, but the distances between them could be really far.  LOTS of driving (even with planning efficient routes over a period of a few days).  But there were also  frequent stops for beer breaks / happy hour specials.  All three or four days I was down there, the temp hovered around 90 - 100+.
  3. My friend said she saw a couple of people from other stores we had been to on previous days.  I had the impression that some stores were picked at (but not completely picked over).
  4. And there were LOTS of really nice high end shirts / custom made shirts that I had to leave behind.  I've never been to a city that seemed to have so many monograms.  There were monograms on cuffs, monograms on shirt pockets / chests, and even monograms on elbows.  < I'd never seen that before.

I spent the day in Vienna yesterday to do some shopping. The bad news is that I really didn't bring home a lot. The good news is that I found a charity shop that is literally a few warehouses. My wife and I are making a return trip in August to check out more of the furniture. They had some interesting things and I couldn't make my way through all of it. They had 15+ pianos sitting around. As far as clothing, it wasn't a huge section, but the quality (and prices) were there. Passed on a couple of things, but here is what I brought home:

Pocket squares, top to bottom generic "hand made in England," Etro and Charles Tyrwhitt (unavailable).

233

Unbranded silk front wool backed scarf. Pretty thin and light, but thought I might use it once or twice (unavailable).

233

Nudie Jeans, NWOT. I'm 99% sure they aren't selvedge, but I've never seen selvedge and therefore I don't understand the need for it. I'm sure that's likely to change once I order myself a pair (possibly available).

233
233

Stephens Brothers shirt for women, EU size 36 but a bit bigger (available on the cheap).

526233

Harris & Harrold shirt, size M 39/40. I know nothing of this brand and couldn't find a lot online. It's a nice shirt that I picked up incredibly cheap. It has shell buttons and is a bit big for me. Available to anyone for cost (€1) and shipping.

The fuck are you guys finding this stuff? It's summer and even our burgeoning DM7-esqe cat is finding good stuff, SF/LA must just be flooded with half decent and recent pieces. I find maybe one passable item any given day, not armfulls. I definitely feel more like our Hawkeye members this time of year.

Alright, so I'm going to defer to you guys on this as I'm trying to talk myself into it being a weekender bag rather than a purse due to how well it's made. It's similar to a filson in the cloth material and uses nice buffalo leather. Made by Levenger, possibly in England. Not currently on their website. Even if it's technically a purse, I might stlll rock it as a carry-on bag.

I forgot a few boring ties that I also grabbed. They're all wool and from the same shop in Berlin. I liked them enough and thought I'd wear them in the fall and if I didn't, I'm only out 30 cents biggrin.gif

@mercuryman: PRL is definitely Corneliani, and seconded on that Zegna linen...quite gorgeous (and firsted on the Chavret...beautiful as well). 

 

If that LP chambray and the Churchs bluchers are my size, a desk might have to be be flipped.

I know, I'm finding things here and there but nothing crazy. I passed on a dated looking Lubiam sport coat after looking at it for about 5 minutes. I haven't found a suit/sport coat in awhile, but it looked terrible.

Re the bag. It looks like it could work as a carry-on type. If you're interested in getting rid of it, let me know! Either my wife or myself would probably use it. biggrin.gif

All pockets are still sewn shut.

My find of the week:

 

A pretty sweet pair of Florsheim Imperials. Sizing got rubbed off but my guess is about 11D. Decent amount of wear on the heels, though.
