This is made in Mexico in a little town called Chiconcouac, normally from wool or a mix of acrilic and wool, made for tourists mainly

Sleeves and inseam are a bit long, but otherwise: dead on. Did I win? (I'm sure rocking a linen charcoal pinstripe suit would be a challenge, but I say BRING IT ON!)

Mixture lot between thrifting and retail therapy at Saks / NM but for amazing deals at least 1/6th retail.

Kiton, Kiton, YSL (recent)


Stefano Ricci, Tom Ford


Bottega Venetia


Interestingly this one is fully canvassed.



Is that periwinkle color not friggin amazing!?



Tie Haul Numero Uno (L-R: Brioni, Brioni, Brioni, Stefano Ricci, YSL, Hugo Boss, Valentino, Zegna, Brioni Pocket Square, Zegna)

Brioni Pocket square was tucked in a suit jacket pocket, took it out and lady said 50cents - Baba Zanetti would be proud icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif








Tie Haul Numero Dos (L-R: Canali, Wilkes Bashford, Hermes, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, Charvet, Corneliani)






Availability:

Tie Haul 1 is a keeper for me, not planning on flipping those ties (Brioni ties for sure keeper, others I may be more flexible).

Tie Haul 2 is available would prefer a clean sweep of these ties - all ties one hit one trade or one cash amount near proxy.

Glad you could give them a good home! Enjoy!


Finally found some stuff today! No thanks to thrift stores, no doubt. Been dryer than a bone at all my usual stores. Makes me tried just walking in the door. That's a bad sign.



Couple ties. Sadly the Hermes has some stains (dark, so not easy to see). Oh well. First Hermes find in ages. Also, a nice house-label Bullock & Jones paisley. Swiss made.








Other finds include a gorgeous Loro Piana checkered casual shirt, 2 Borrelli dress shirts (sadly one has t-rex arms I somehow failed to miss), RLPL spread collar white 120s dress shirt, light brown Allen Edmonds suede Melrose loafers (super recent, but 9 1/2 EEE) and a pair of NWT Chippewa green canvas & brown leather snake boots.

Pics to come.

Need advice: take a chance on a NWT Zegna tuxedo at $150? What's something like that likely to fetch on Ebay? It's 42L, SBPL. Stupid thing actually fits me beautifully, but I have no opportunities to wear black tie ever.

Ebay, completed listings. (Sorry BP, you could've probably answered the same in a much more spectacular fashion.)

For the record, the PRL toggle listed above is tagged S, just like the raincoat I picked up... however, it fits me (42) and could possibly fit someone bigger... weird shit. I'd hate to see an XL

I am 25 and had never heard of knit ties until I happened upon SF. I think it's just because of how uncommon ties are in general. The thought of an informal/casual tie is just doesn't make sense to many younger folks.

Augh that's worse than the old lady who poses in lingerie.

 

 

As for my own thrifting... I stopped in a Humana shop in Berlin today. Only thing even remotely OK was a Z Zegna suit, for which they wanted 70 Euro.

 

They were also asking 200 Euro for a Bugatti overcoat. That's like a month's rent in Berlin.

The 2 Brioni shirts I picked up earlier, worth even trying to flip or should I just re-donate? The first one is a very heavy weave and the second one is like a polo shirt weave, very lightweight.

What exactly is the problem with them?
