I got tired of loading slides as well, and finally got a slide & negative scanner on eBay...mainly because I picked up a number of old boxes of slides (1950's / 60's) and got a crick in my neck from holding them up to the light to see what the hell they were of.

Is this real?
Clues:
- Tags says Ermenegildo Zegna Paris but white tag says made in Italy?
- Old Zegna tag and has anyone ever seen the "E Z Paris" logo as per pic below?
- Waistband in pants is brand new
- Pants are flat front , if it was as old as tags indicates, wouldnt it have pleats?
- No tags in pants
- Lining in pants is strange for lack of a better word
- Tag in the collar that usually says where it was made was removed.

Woke up at the ass-crack of dawn (no actually, it was still dark)...made my way to the post office when it was finally a decent hour, then hit the racks at a few places - here are my grabs:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

One for the ladies - a great vintage "shrug" type sweater, heavily embroidered and embellished with beads etc.  Cute as hell if you're into vintage.

 

 

Samuelsohn houndstooth.

 

 

Pair of E. Zegna ties.

 

 

An ooo-glay Vegas tie for me.

 

Trio of what I assume to be vintage i. magnin ties.

 

 

Versace and Ferragamo.

 

 

Thos. Pink.

 

 

Another Thos. Pink.

 

 

Pringle of Scotland shirt, made in Italy.

 

 

English Laundry.

 

 

 

Barbour shirt.

 

 

Another Coogi.  No idea why I keep buying these...

 

Can anyone tell me if this Woolrich shirt is supposed to serve a purpose...and if so, what?  It resembles a shooting shirt but the shoulder isn't padded - it's just 2 layers of fabric.  And the "arm gaiters" are odd.  I'm thinking it's an archery shirt (but then why the shoulder patch?)...

 

 

Brooks Brothers made in Italy silk / linen / something else blend SC, in a blueish-gray:

 

 

 

New With Tags riding pants / jodhpurs / whatever they are called:

 

 

 

Something to flip: LRL Home wool English Country pillow shams, retail was $350 for both, nabbed the last 2 at Marshalls on clearance.

 

 

And something else for me - vintage napkin dispenser. 

 

 

 

 

Only hitting one place tomorrow since it's 50% off day on everything there; probably won't find crap but I'm sort of obligated due to the price reductions...

 

I've never been to the Premium Outlets but the one closest to me is having a Labor Day sale 8/31 thru 9/3 so I might check them out - there's Brooks Bros, Burberry, RL, Coach, and a couple others maybe worth visiting.

I once found some Percocets in the pocket of an awesome Polo 3-button tweed...so,naturally I popped the pills and returned the jacket to the rack...not really,I paid $9.99 for a pristine garment and tossed the pills-I ain't crazy...

Thats real, but like 25 years old.
post #45771 of 121300

Picked up this PRL sweater from a thrift store a couple of weeks ago, first time wearing it.

 

post #45772 of 121300
one find today; almost got a BB silk/wool jacket before I saw the hole in the back, and an Armani Collezioni suit jacket without the pants.



size XL

Cute little buggers!

Gentlemen,

 

Though my time here has been short, I am posting my final find for the next two years.

 

Looking around a local thrift, I spotted a pattern in the SC section that sorta "popped," and I decided to pick it up. It was a full suit - pick stitching, ticket pocket, bright under collar melton, fully canvassed (90% positive), kissing buttons, lined trou, made in Italy, the whole nine yards - even the pockets were still stitched up. Heck, she fit me like a glove - odd, because I'm a 54/44... no complaints, though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Granted she's a Kuhlman, and probably a few years old, I jumped on it. I figured that I'll want to have something a bit more fun (flipped collar in bad weather) when I'm in Utah serving my two-year mission... still gotta be slightly irreverent, even as a Missionary! laugh.gif

 

Pics!

Dang! How exactly does one go about getting featured on Put This On?

I had a suit that I listed without drawing a bid (granted with a kinda high starting price as I'd bought it on ebay and just wanted my money back).
PTO featured it and I got 3000 views and almost 300 watchers.


it givith but it also takes away:
Another time I was watching this great vintage Madras shirt, it was listed without selling at least a couple times.
I kept meaning to bid, but everytime he listed he'd drop the price, so I was being greedy and hoping for a $5 shirt
PTO featured it and it went for like $125+
The worst is when you find some hidden gem through searching, no brand name in the lisitng, or in the wrong category, or some odd vintage thing, then ou find it on PTO and you get far outbid.

Isaia trousers and Robert Geller flight pants.

2 x Billy Reid shirts. One is NWT.

Willis and Geiger chinos


Canali suit. Suoer 120's.

Most were actually from consignment, but consignment is sometimes cheaper than thrifts here.

I'm glad my billy reid shirts found a new home smile.gif
The blue one has only been washed once btw

EDIT: I had dropped off a huge assortment of stuff. Way better than anything they had already. It's a shame the men's section is so small


So did you sell the Billy Reid shirts??
