Gentlemen:

I'm hoping this is the general consensus in the weeks coming

Anyone seen this tag before? It's NWOT and I like the fabric / color, so I picked it up hoping it'd fit... Even though it's marked an XL it's significantly too small for me, so maybe XL childrens? Maybe available, can measure if interested

Boys label.

The Valley Thrift where I live has taken to putting hole-punch security tags on everything. Punching holes in ties, loafers... and the butt of pants. Not the pockets, or extra fabric at the seam - right in the middle of the seat. As much as I'd like some Zanellas, a gaping hole in the seat really doesn't work for me.

Yep, that tag indicates Hickey Freeman, and the Burberry label is the more recent tan Burberry London label as well.

Burberry wool/silk SC. Made in the US but looks fairly recent. Is this HF? Heading back to Austria with me and will likely make an appearance on ebay.de

Barneys Cashmere pullover, made in Italy.

J.Crew Pullover. Nothing too interesting, but $1 and I can do something with it. Picture wouldn't flip but I doubt anyone here really cares to see a grey J. Crew pullover to notice that it's upside down.

I wanted to thank everyone that helped me out with offers to meet up and give me some info on which stores to hit. Everyone here was an incredible help. I've had a blast ploughing through piles of clothes. I want to give a special thanks to Acosbysweater for going back to a store and throwing down some cash to pick up and mail a pair of sunglasses that I left behind even though I knew I should have just gotten them at the time.
On that note, I can safely say that I need a break from Stafford, Van Heusen, George and Arrow brand shirts. Turnbury can go straight to hell for having their tags look elegant enough to be something of quality. Finally, a big eff you to all of those makers out there that attempt to work Uomo or Savile into their names. I can say with some certainty that my forearms are more muscular than they were three weeks ago and I never knew how heavy a wall of shirts could be. I'm flying home with a couple of bags full of Zegna, RLPL, Burberry and Corneliani.
I've made a few trades on here and I'm actually going to attempt to get to the post office tomorrow before my 10:00am flight to drop off my last box. I hope I can continue making trades with you guys when I get back to Austria. I'll also try to get some photos of our thrifts...you'll suddenly feel happy to have Goodwills stocked full of god knows what.

Security tags?  How much are they selling those items for?

 

The higher priced-items I see in thrift stores tend to be behind counters or in the case of shoes, they will only put one shoe out, but I've never seen security tags at a thrift store.

They are so worried about free clothes that people donated. Its obviously about profit not charity. ...Which I really could care less about, but when you pick up a suit with 2 different prices written in marker and then crossed out, it becomes a no buy for me.

Picked these up yesterday for $0.69 each and almost perfect condition.

 

New Wayfarer and RB4115

Gonna give the 4115's to my dad and have the NW converted to normal eyeglasses w/ my prescription. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Anybody ever hear of Silton California? Seems to be a 70's brand. Canvas coat with faux fur collar. I picked it up to wear when I have to clear the snow, work on the car in the winter (as if!) or toss on to do some other dirty outdoor cold weather job. I could be persuaded to part with it if someone feels an attachment.

40R. I'm wearing it over a lined cotton sport coat, here. No interior pockets but it does have the patch cargoes and the hand warmer upper pockets.

Collar down.

I left a navy DB Pendleton wool pea coat in good condition. Early sign of a moth attack but it was caught before any real damage. It fit like it was a 36.
