The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 2926

post #43876 of 124370
MikeH, my cobbler actually prefers that there be some wear before he puts on the topys. Something about the soles already have been bent somewhat.

Have kept up with the thread but haven’t really hit the # of thrifts I usually do. Was out of town last week and hit 2 maybe 3 thrifts. Today was able to stop at only one angry.gif .

Found this cool BB 346 SC in Brown color. I am reluctantly making it AVAILABLE as it doesn’t fit. Tagged as L and fits like a 43L or 44L. Really nice details like pick stitch, patch pockets, partially lined and that strap thing in the back to give you a nice silhouette, Spoo style. Also, dbl vented and cotton:

Couple of ties. Seem to have a weakness for G. Armani ties (sorry WAYRN guys).

There was some talk about PRL SCs made in Macau a while back. Here’s mine. I bought it new early this year on clearance at Marshalls for $50. It is icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. I recently saw another Macau one also on clearance for $50 but it had a gaudy crest thing on the patch pocket up front.

Finally, picked up a H Boss suit for the bay, NWT Banana Republic pants for my brother, and some pants for eazy last week. Looking forward to getting the shirt, brah nod[1].gif .

Really the maker's just didn't want their brand name on inferior quality goods. 

 

...AAAAND thank you to the folks who chimed in on this one...  I had been tempted to pick them up but resisted, not knowing what it was / meant.  Shall never kop.

(Holy Crap, I just followed Mainy's mega post - I should probably just delete and observe a moment of silence)

Well Done mainy, that's the way to post in a bragging thread!

I used to dedicate a spare bedroom to "library/office" functions. Now that is called a "project room" with books lining the walls. Whenever I know a lot of glue stick is being put to use, I just pray that it stays away from the more expense ones.

Thanks to those who said topys would still work. Neither pair has really worn soles, so they should be fine from what you say.

Thats a precursor to the Zegna "Duo" line, as we know it today.

Tough to say from those awesome pics smile.gif But it looks real, likely from that grey period in the late 80s of mass production. You'll get a dime on ebay though, likely. With better pics :P

My wife and I are backpacking in the central Philippines. I've got 1K posts to catch up on and a couple of Thrift Fits from the field to upload (internet connectivity permitting, lol).

Also found this HF that was an XXL. Had a couple of small pin-sized holes in inconspicuous places on it so I passed - would have bought it if it fit me, but if anyone wants it, I can proxy it, too.

*Edit - Both are claimed. 

 

Nice finds, bro! Love the Loro Piana fabric! See, it goes to show you where-ever you go, there's always good stuff to be found! I'm glad you are hauling it up north. I recently started going back to martial arts training 4 days a week so no more 20 hours thrifting adventures per week. peepwall[1].gif

 

Time to cut down my obsession.
