Hit a lot of stores today, but didn't find much.

 

NWT (?) Paul Stuart - L (AVAILABLE)

Also picked up a couple of ties, a non-bragworthy SC for myself, and a Boss suit for the 'bay.

Last weekend I picked up this NWT pair of big, long and baggy shorts - urban / hip-hop I guess they would be called.  I wish I could find an entire suit or just a SC in this print (for cheaper than at loudmouthgolf.com).  Not available (not that anyone here would want them to begin with).

If the stains have any hope of coming out, pick that up immediately. People don't know Castangia as a name, but .... well, just ask Nataku, he'll school you.

 

And ask the store if you get a discount because it's stained. I got an eaten up Brioni SC from Goodwill for half off because it was damaged. It's pretty worked, but it was $3.

 

Dont remember the size.

From what ive read, its rare and is up there in the ranks with Kiton?

 

How would one even go about getting all those yellow stains out on something Dry Clean Only?

 

Yeah, I always ask for a discount on shit thats pretty beat up. Always works, got a pair of Dockers K-1, Made in the States in Cramerton Twill the other day for a steal because I thought they were damaged, so I asked the dude for s discount. Went down from 10.99 to 1.99 haha. Anyways, shouldve known better that all those stains were a part of the look. They call it Ammunition Tin. Oh well, got a discount.

Had a few finds today. Certainly better luck than I've been having lately.

 

Some Brooks Bros. Polos. I wasn't going to pick them up but there was a sale for 5 articles of clothing for $5, so they paid for themselves and more. Striped is M, others are L. Let me know if you want one.

My first taste of Mr. Graham. Embroidered flowers everywhere (Huge-ass one on the back).

A couple Zegna shirts. Gray has dark MoP buttons.

Not the most recent label I don't think.

A RRL tee. Really soft, I guess a boys XL, fits a bit weird in the chest but I think I'll keep it.

And then what I think is my best find to date. I'm assuming it's real because it is really nice. A Hartmann Luggage leather Briefcase. This thing is solid. Nice leather, great interior, minimal wear, it even had the keys to lock it.  Any tips for cleaning it up? All I've used is some leather conditioner on it and I'd like to get rid of the black/white marks on it without damaging it.

 

I wasn't really sure of the value when I picked it up, even though it did seem nice. So I plopped down on the musty couch they had to check google real quick. This isn't the exact one I picked up, but it's pretty damn close. Not a bad way to end a day of thrifting.

I'd grab it if I were you. Stains can usually be removed or toned down a lot. If it's on the lining of trousers, that can be replaced.

Castangia is a great maker. Very high quality stuff with loads of handwork (going by the few pieces I've handled). It's lesser known and I think they make for some high-end labels as well as some of Bergdorf Goodman's house label tailored garments.

Ok, Let me ask you this, because more than likely it isnt going to be my size, it looked too big, in terms of just selling it in "For Repairs" condition, do you think anyone would jump on it?

If it's a fairly common size that isn't bizarrely altered (ie: T-Rex arms), I'd say you should easily triple your money. List it in B/S though. eBay might get your a couple bites but the label is so obscure it'll fly under the radar for most people.

I did find something I'd be glad to proxy to a regular. 46 L tuxedo.

I don't think anything's wrong with it, though there might be a minor pull somewhere I didn't see (that's the only way this price makes sense to me).

I think it was $189 w/o tax.

I found my first Band of Outsiders item, sort of.

Band of Outsiders for Sperry Top Siders. Size 11.5M.

These are too big for me, but they looked too nice for me to leave behind for a hobo to grab.

The one in Marietta, next to TJX?  If so, I've had a little luck flipping about half what I've picked up there, the other half returned for refund.  RLPL did not sell, but very large (3XB and bigger) RL Polo shirts went quick.  It's a gamble and in my own experience did not pay off well enough to make the trip there and back twice, but since you work in the area it may be worthwhile to you.  Per a cashier, the time to shop there is when school starts, and the days after thanksgiving and xmas when they have 90% off and more on some stuff (tho that's on whatever is left)...
