So yesterday I was up signing the lease on my new place and decided to hit up a shop that's going to be walking distance to me as of next month (that's going to be trouble).
Hadn't seen this before, but figured it was good, and it is(street wear). Size small- I'm convinced it's kid sized but I guess it isn't.
I see something gaudy and bright hanging on the side of the shoe racks... Hmm what's this? A Robert Graham shirt, so I grab it and stay in the area in case someone had just set it there for a second to look at shoes. Ok five seconds is enough and I walk away.
Then I get a call from DM7 and we discuss meeting up. You don't even have to thrift with him to find good things, you just have to come in contact with him somehow. Trying to convince him to open up an 800 number. No sooner than I hang up with him, a rack comes out in front of me that, among other things, had these on it.
Shirt on the bottom left was the one I found first. When the rack rolled out, for some reason I didn't take in what had assed me, just that it was men's shirts. The rack actually got rolled toward the women's side of the store, which I think was my saving grace. First comes an RG, then two Brioni shirts, then another four RG's. One by one I plucked them off the rack, trying my best not to shit myself in amazement nor spring wood. One of the Grahams, arguably the nicest feeling of the bunch and one that was actually wearable, had a few stains on the front that I wasn't up for risking. The Brioni's, sigh... One was regular priced but appeared to need the treatment and I don't think the fabric or buttons would be the same afterwards, it was a unique sort of weave. The other said Brioni for Neiman Marcus and thus was priced at $20, so I said nuts to that one as well, though I shed a tear because it was seriously sweet. End result - 5 RG's for the bay.
Then went and hit the shops with DM7. He pulled these from the racks for me, nwot and my size:
He also was generous enough to pass this find along to me because I wouldn't stop talking about how versatile I thought it was.
ooooh (Click to show)
Appears to be current too, and as a darkmatter of fact, it's here.
His haul was just a so-so afternoon for him... But would have been an epic day for someone else.
