^ Label closeup. Brioni for Neiman Marcus.

 

Snagged the shirt today at Savers among a literal sea of $12.99 Nordstrom house brand shirts for... $5.99. Yeah, I don't mind if the pricing personnel keep up with their blatant disregard for high-end labels.

 

So, how was it?

Great stuff!

I figured that I might as well post a few of my recent finds (oldest being the Fendi ties, month or so.) - with the "crown jewel" being from today. Hope that I get some compliments from my first post, haha!

Excuse the haphazard arrangement of the first set of ties...




^ Vintage Lanvin, Vintage(?) Fendi, Vintage (?) Fendi, Hardy Amies (cotton.)



^ Front view.




^ I just thought that it was a nice shot. tounge.gif



^ I think this one lets the texture of the tie show through. 



^ Brioni, Ermenegildo Zegna, Ermenegildo Zegna, Boss Black.



^ Brioni label closeup. 



^ E. Zegna.



^ E. Zegna.

That Hardy Ames is sweet! So is that Brioni shirt. Are you keeping it?

Weird. I'd never heard of Carluccio's. The mob (rumored) place I know is Piero's. Was just at Frankie's Tiki Room w/ a friend I've known since first grade. Definitely a local's place, like the Peppermill. For great Mexican food, you might try Dona Maria's on Las Vegas Boulevard. The place is at least 30 yrs old. When I was growing up it was just "Tia" Maria's. And of course, Luv-it Custard is a staple of old LV. The donut shop between Luv-it and Olympic Gardens is worth a detour too imo.
Other unique shops include Sam's Town's western emporium. Although, i might be a Shepler's now. Mad Men Army Surplus has an interesting selection. I like the cheap, plain fitted baseball caps. The owner's a real character too. My favorite thrift store in LV, though, has to be a one-of-a-kind place (not like Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) on the east side of Boulder Highway. Not sure if its there now, since I can't find it on Google maps. Haven't been there for maybe four years. Huge place w/ an amazing selection of ties and belts.

 

Oh yes - I've done 8 tours of the neon boneyard, now known as the neon museum with the new park / display area, and the La Concha motel lobby serving as their entrance soon (if not already).  I go there practically every time in Vegas even though it doesn't change much, because I'm a believer in what they're doing, plus I've been collecting things related to the La Concha for years now (room postcards, ashtrays, room keys, original vintage vacation photos etc).  An amazing bit of Googie, that motel was.

 

Frankie's - that's the place I need to hit up next time - thanks for the name reminder.  Have been to Luv-It; it's a must-have every time.  Ate at the Heart Attack grill last time, which was an experience - everything to an excessive extreme - fits right in.  Flavor Flav opened up a chicken & waffles restaurant that I have to check out as well - the thought of it just amuses me.

 

Have been up & down Boulder & Charleston many a time (I also like taking photos of old motels & signs, of which there are plenty along those routes); don't recall seeing any thrifts at all but I wasn't really looking - thanks for the tip - will keep an eye out next time...which will probably be October, if I let my gal-friend talk me into it again.  I want to go to Belize, she wants to go back to Vegas already.  Oy.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Brioni is worth something. Which tie are you talking about? I can provide additional photos for anyone if they'd like.

Thanks, EazyE! The floral print on it really caught my eye, $3.00, can't go wrong with that! As for the Brioni shirt, I'm most definitely keeping it; however, we all know that at some point or another, all things can be negotiated wink.gif. For the time being, I'm going to definitely hang onto her - love me some paisley.

Yea, I passd on a paisley Etro shirt awhile ago, at $25 it was pretty steep, but I'm kicking myself now for not grabbing it.

Any of you Gents have a vintage women's size small Burberry trench coat you'd like to get rid of? I used to see them pretty regularly, of course, not so much, now that I've actually been seeking one out.
post #45308 of 118900
Don't have one, but I can watch. By Burberry, I assume you definitely want that brand. Any color preference?

Since it's you...

Paisley?

Jesus, finds recently have been ridiculous. Samuelsohn, Brioni ties for everyone, RLPL everywhere, I'm feeling a golden month for September hopefully. I'll hit up Michigan stores hard for a few days before buckling down, hopefully Ann Arbor and the surrounding areas have some nice stuff.

Also plan to repost a few things now that fall is coming for the new members. I kept that Corneliani Linea Sarotria in hopes that someone cool would need a 40R SC, and now that there are some new dudes contributing it looks like there will be some people getting blessed in the future.

But GG is still the best of that haul, IMO. A must-have disc no matter your taste in music.

Grabbed these cool old Nunn Bush shell cordovans, ca. 1950's maybe?

I might be able to help determine age if you could post pics of the inside and the soles. Btw, size and availability?

Picked up my winnings from an estate sale auction this morning. 3 closet cleanouts. I know there are two pairs of vintage Red Wing boots which will more than cover my costs, and a ton of polyester crap. Hopefully I'll sift a few more gems out of this mess. I'm thankful I wasn't in a car accident coming home - one spark with that quantity of manmade fabrics would have created a fireball visible from space.
