Very nice pickups, but I have to disagree here. We all have diverse interests and a cool part of this thread is seeing what others are interested in and even sharing those interests. This thread isn't clothing specific. Outdated licensed designer ties on the other hand, I think we're all better off without those.

I agree! However, my biggest peeve is seeing outdated "Burberry's" clothing and "Christian Dior Monsieur" licensed crap. Honestly, I loved seeing DarkMatter, Mainy and Kobbler's posts because they posted amazing QUALITY clothing vs. "cool looking" items. I know this thread is about diverse interests, but seeing the same type of crap clothing (LL Bean, Eddie Bauer, Hunt Club) I have to rummage through to find quality items that show up in this thread is getting ridiculous. baldy[1].gif

Interesting to know, I saw the buttons and "made in Switzerland" and immediately thought of Zegna...great find though, not something you're gonna run across in a thrift very often (certainly not me anyways...)

Ooohh (Click to show)

Fun cuffs

 

Sup.

 

 

Back is actually clean, that's just dust inside my point n shoot's lens

Robots in disguise!

 

Love the button hole stitches. Hey wait there's more pockets, I should look inside...

 

As you've probably guessed by now.

 

So it's not incredible, but the reason I picked it up was because the wool on this thing is cleeeeean. No moth buffet here. First Pendleton anything that I've found in this condition. Bought more cedar goodies on the way home just to keep bugaboos at bay, and I'll be getting her green cleaned just to be safe/to remove a little grime on the tan side that should come off no sweat.

 

Available? I suppose for the right trade, but at the same time I'm thinking especially in this size it might be good fodder for the 'bay right?

That thing is pure awesome......icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Its presumptive to believe that everyone has even seen one item from most of these brands in a thrift even once, let alone would restrict themselves to only buying or posting about only those brands whose retail values are only at these levels. I have an Eddie Bauer expedition parka that I bought because I wasn't ever going to find a Nigel Cabourn Everest parka at a price I can afford and I wasn't going to wear inadequate winter clothes because the item of my dreams had a different label. It was still high quality cotton and 100% down fill for $25 vs. $1,090 for the Cabourn option.

Basically, I've used thrifting to fill gaps in my closet with items that either look like or even inspired the loon of high end products that I'd much rather own. When I find the better item I'm after, I'll either donate the lesser product back or trade to another member in need. Rather than bowing at the alter of the high end brands, learn to read styles and find quality hidden beyond the bolded name on the tags.

Edit:

You bought awesome quality stuff, aside from the Ted baker jawn.

A little more padding/structure in the shoulders of the Roma. Roma is more of a full/traditional fit. Milano is a little bit trimmer.

Really? I tought it was the other way around when it comes to fit, Roma usally look trimmer on me.

I have tried both and opt for Roma too, personally. In the case of it looking trimmer, it may be because of the more aggressive shoulders. The Milano, while supposedly cut trimmer, boasted a fuller chest, so it had an athletic, modern cut. But I do believe Roma is the more "traditional" fit of the two. A guy like Spoo might be able to weight in - he currently wears both cuts.

Regardless, both the jackets you posted are very nice!

Petrocelli-details.jpg
It's a mottled black & brown with gold flecks (not shiny), made between '49 & '62, and feels like felt, though I can see a twill weave. Is that called anything special?]

It's often referred to as "atomic fleck" fabric. It was popular in the '50s, part of the whole Hollywood look where men's fashion generally jumped the shark.

I've come across a few of these ties. I would of picked them up if they were in nicer condition. I vote real.

Damn! I wish I could find some APCs or even Nudies! Nice finds! 

 

Couple of items from the past week or so: 

 

Barely Worn AE Cantons (nice profit on the Bay)

 

 

Footjoy Classics (Can't remember who recommended picking these up, but thanks for the knowledge...these turned a good profit)

 

PRL Fly Fishing Tie - Available to the "A River Runs Through It" crowd or anyone who would rock a fly fishing tie...

 

Charles Tyrwhitt Black Dress Shoes - Who makes these for CT? N/A

No offense, but vintage made in the USA LL Bean, Eddie Bauer stuff IS quality, and DOES look cool. I like seeing pieces that people on here are actually going to put to use rather then a bunch of ebay fodder that no one with taste and in their right mind would wear. I know a lot of people that come here enjoy seeing more than just the clothes aspect of this thread. Furniture, cool nick-knacks, electronics and such are all welcome here. In other words, keep posting your records people, and others who aren't into that sort of thing are free to skip said posts.

From last week, nothing available. Shoes have a barneys label.
