Did Spoo hit 20K yet?
Did anyone get any free shirts in the mail?
I dunno.

Yea dig, he started a new consignment site as well and announced it for 20k. Luxeswap, check it out.

Also meant to add, selvedge jeans at 29-30x30 or 32 I'm also looking to buy or trade for. And there have been way too many finds lately. I'm gonna go to at least one GW after work today, I'm tired of everyone getting all these finds without me.

Picked up 2 Ferragamo ties this weekend. Already posted one but the other had to get some cleaning done.
Here it is: funky monkeys and birds in foliage. Very cool.

Some of the good and bad of recent thrifts:

 

Good:

Kiton Micron Tonal Stripe Jacket (58 EU):

Bad:

Even with a bit of a patch-job on there, a Kiton Micron Jacket was still a good pickup at $15, right? Right...

 

Also my first time finding any of this guy's stuff:

 

Good:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Brunello Cucinelli Flat Front White Cotton Pants (56 Eu I believe - about a 40 waist)

100_2448.jpg

Bad:

A handful of stains (some not visible in pics) on the front. I figured I'd take a gamble and see what the dry cleaners and/or Oxyclean could do.

 

Good:

 

Borrelli Completely Unstructured Navy Blazer w/ Patch Pockets (44/46)

 

100_2451.jpg

100_2452.jpg

 

100_2454.jpg

 

100_2455.jpg

Bad

Tried in vain to get this out, but I don't think I'm going to make it work. Too bad, it's a great piece.

 

 

And finally, this is all good:

 

100_2420.jpg

 

Lightweight Prada Navy Blue Suit (40r - my size so keeping)

Overall Cotton, a good day thrifting. Pity about the Borrelli though, perhaps you could look at some dyeing techniques? Just a thought. I would try to fix that jacket, it is potentially one of the better finds I have seen recently.
post #42457 of 113048

Went at lunch... Only pickup was a pair of Romano Martegani shoes, size 8... I hadn't heard of the brand, but they seem well made and they look like they've only been worn once. Black with an elongated chisel toe with brogueing, no cap. 

post #42458 of 113048
Just search SF. They are very well made shoes. May even have a second hand market.

Cotton Dockers, nice finds. Especially like that Prada suit.

Ugh. I've had that happen to me before in Charlotte. I'm assuming for weather (it's about to get a stormin' up here). Not a terrible airport to get stuck in, just not overnight (literally). If you need a place to sleep, I highly suggest the padded chairs near the baggage terminal on the lower floor. There's also a Starbucks up the stairs from there, so you won't go hungry or decaffinated.
