No probs, some gingham patterns are often described as tattersall but a true tattersall is square mesh (in 2 or more colours) over a solid background

Ok, I am cheating as these are from an estate sale, but picked up two nice watches yesterday. A new without box Timex Indiglo, and a 1963 Timex Self Wind.

The Self Wind needs the nail file treatment on the crystal, but other than that they are in pretty great shape.

Grand Total: $4.00

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!

Nice! I think I know what store you found this at - they seem to get a ton of NWOT/NWT Kuhlman stuff, both new and older. Their tailored stuff is great. 5-6 years ago when they still had 2-3 outlets in the TC area, the tailored stuff could be picked up on deep discount and was an amazing deal. I liked the styling too. Sleek with great details, Really reminds me of Etro.

Sorry but that looks absolutely, totally, 100% fake. It could only look more fake if they'd coloured the label in blue crayon.

Not sure, but my 2 cents are that it is possibly real, but very old. I've never seen any older (pre 1970's) Burberry, so I have no idea. It has the look to be pre 1975-ish. Could be an old fake too. The stitching looks off and they cut it pretty close to the graphics. How is the construction and more importantly, what is it (the garment)?
post #45788 of 134253
It was some type of wool overcoat. I passed because it looked fake. The only "Burberrys" labels I've seen have all had the single quotes as well, and indeed it does look like the label was cut poorly. I didn't really pay attention to anything else about the piece. I didn't see a tag at the back of the collar either, which is normally where the made in tags are for these I thought?

Hit three places today even though I promised myself to just hit one.  A small pile of OK stuff not photo'd, but here's one I found that fits right in with this here thrift brag thread.

 

Kinda loud paisley polo-style pull-over.

Price was $3.93...but today was half-off day, so closer to $2 including tax.

Wanna see what's under the price tag?  I used my x-ray vision so didn't need to remove it before buying, and I guess no one else at the store today was curious, but just for you I'll take it off:

My size (XL that has shrunk a bit); not available.

The only HF I picked up today. 70/30 wool/silk blend. 42R. Available. Probably left 7-8 HF's, and a Canali suit, unvented. All around 42R. Get at me if you're interested.



Broke a cardinal rule of thrifting today: don't pick up orphans, but I couldn't leave these behind. My first time seeing any of these in the wild. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I'm definitely going to make time to hit this store back up tomorrow and Tuesday to look for the pants. Also, passed on a gorgeous, deep green hopsack trad as hell sack blazer, but I've changed my mind and I'm going to grab that too.
