Keep in mind at nearly 80 years old, he may not be around much longer...if they are real, it might be good to hang on to them a few years.

 

Even the prints of his stuff runs about 40-50 bucks - unframed...and framing is outrageously expensive. Although I can't find one that looks like the one you pictured...could be a good sign.


This would just be for the house, not to flip. But I don't really want to buy a print. I'll go take a look again tomorrow and decide.

 

Here are two more of them:

I can't find either of those available as prints or posters, but of course I may not be finding all of them. He has a few popular floral ones, and a couple abstract, but it seems to be the same ones over and over. You might be in luck.

Hanging up like that is SOOO much nicer than the 20-deep leaning piles of framed mostly-garbage I have to look through to try to find anything worthwhile.

After ages of finding gum wrappers, Kleenex's, funeral service booklets and other useless garbage, finally found something of value in the pockets of 5 pairs of jeans I picked up yesterday.

The first pair yielded a $1 bill...and:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The second pair yielded a $10 bill and a $20 bill.

...now, at this rate, you math wizards will know that if the next 3 pairs yielded the same - 30 times what each of the previous pair did - I would have $837,931...

Alas, I don't - the giving jeans gave their last and I ended up with $31 cash...which at 5 pairs of jeans x $6 each + tax to purchase, they paid for themselves.

Speaking of Hudson Bay blankets, I have one I don't want. Ill Ebay it eventually, but if anyone on here wants one id give you the hook up price of ~1/2 ebay. I just don't like it, it clashes with my frette sheets and duvet TBH :) BTW Im about to make it rain up in here! Last 1/3 of my previous dallas haul, + I went out to a few stores Monday and managed to find... a LOT.

Edit: God damn you Spoo, and bytor? (whoever posted the sheets) I am now obligated to buy some versace sheets, and possibly a rug... Say what you want, but I love some of that shit.

'twas me...the seller has two varieties (so you can change 'em up on laundry day).

Seller is in Bulgaria with zero feedback...and those sheets / comforters are obv. fake but would be sorta fun to have...just to have.

Not much today, just an overcoat in my size (36S). Jacket weight gray herringbone tweed, so a light one, made in England for what seems to be a regional DC brand. Not really something I greatly need, though I figure it could be handy on a cool day. If that sounds like something another small guy on here might be interested in, I'd be willing to take some pictures for ya.

The mystery continues! Now with better pics!

 

Ok. What the hell is this? It's an overcoat, but there are no buttons anywhere and there's no belt or a place for a belt, so it's just this cloak-like thing. Tagged 42, which seems about right for US sizing, but it was made in Germany. I'm obviously not keeping this and picked it up because a) it was a first for me and b) it seemed cool.

 

So can anyone help with vintage and ... what the hell it is?

If there's a spot available for buttons, somebody probably had some very nice buttons on there and took them off before donating it. There are also some types of buttons that can be removed for cleaning, though I usually think of those on hardcore military stuff, and they could have been taken off, with the coat left at the cleaners for too long and donated from there (actually a pretty decent amount of nice stuff at thrifts comes from cleaners).

My bet though, is that it's a womens piece, and just not designed for an attached belt. You would just take the matching belt and tie it around yourself sans loops, if one ever existed. You may be expected to supply your own, or just wear it as a cloak- hardly the craziest thing to ever happen with women's fashion.

I also don't think Jil Sander has ever made menswear.

It came with a vest as well but fittingly, no pants. I didn't bother searching the pants racks to find the 'Mate but if they were there, I bet they had centerfolded them.

What's up with this Filson crap? Itchy as hell!

IMG_20120904_135115.jpg

It was an XL and though you can't see it in the pic, a three ring circus would have fit behind me. Also a moth hole in the sleeve right on the edge of the cuff. Not horrible though. Wanty?
