Pretty sure I saw Spoo selling a pair of croc Artioli's for about 1.2k.
post #47222 of 121377

Man, I assumed that since Vancouver is so obscenely expensive (it's the LA of Canada, apparently), thrifting would be a dream. I was mistaken. The only thing I've found at a reasonable price that might be OKish is this:

 

 

 

These are pretty unworn tassel loafers, and are in excellent condition. I couldn't find much information. Should I go back and pick it up for the $14 or so it would cost me?

I'd imagine each pair going for 150-200$ with some tripping that figure.

Wow more amazing finds today by everyone here (that Etro jacket !!!!).  Here's my stuff for the day.

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Pendleton x4.  I pretty much always leave these when I find them individually, but these were all awesome patterns and were in absolutely immaculate condition, obviously from the same single owner.  Also, I'm pretty sure these are the higher quality older ones.  All made in USA with only the old "Dry clean" tag.

 

 

 

RRL (XL) - I can't tell if this is a shirt or some kind of a jacket.  Really heavy.  RG

 

 

Holland & Sherry

 

 

Brooks Bros Golden Fleece.  Ugh.  I think I screwed up on this one.  Would there ever be an instance where the pants would have a faint check and the jacket wouldn't?  I, of course, know the answer to this, but am in denial.  It's just the pattern is identical except I can't see a check on the jacket while there is a blue one on the pants that I somehow missed in the store.  The pants are definitely BBGF pants as well I can tell, just probably for another of the owner's suits.  Ugh.

 

 

BBGF flannel suit

 

 

Zegna "Exclusive High Performance Light" 6/2 DB, Zegna Trofeo 6/2 DB, Zegna S100s 6/1 DB.  I committed a cardinal thrifting sin: I picked up orphans.  confused.gif.  But ugh, I never see Zegna and these were really nice.  All had working cuffs and were super lightweight and in incredible condition.  I'll probably eventually find the pants for them, right?  RIGHT???

 

 

 

Older Burberrys, but very nice pattern

 

 

 

Very recent Corneliani 6/2 DB, side vented.  Pick stitching along the entire damn jacket length.  So incredibly nice.

 

 

 

The coolest find of the day, by far.  Dunhill grey birdseye tweed jacket, side vented with leather buttons.  Made in italy (don't know maker because the content tag was ripped out).

Pretty much any shoe with the "hand-written" looking label is well-made and likely very expensive. I've grab them if they're not too bizarre of a size.

Just got a reply to my email inquiring if the shoes were still available. Someone with the monies came and cleaned them out.

I started a google document (which was taken from an AAAC thread). it is a work in progress.

Is that middle Zegna available? And if so what's the size? I really would love it as a suit, but it's still purty.

ffffuuuu.gifWhy are people so damn dumb!!?? Some of my shirts had the damn tag punched through the fabric, but shoes???!!! Are you for realZZZZZZZZ!!!????

Ah sweet! Thanks, Brian! This reminds me of the history of Sulka tags page I stumbled across a few months ago...If I find it, I'll post it.

 

Nothing too great to brag about. Stuff pales in comparison to some of youz guyz. But I still think my stuff is pretty cool, right? Right...

 

I normally don't buy stuff from vintage shops such as Moon Zoom but I walked into one trying to get some eye candy of some hipster chick in short shorts when I stumbled across this guy.

 

 

I was like damn, this thing sure is fugly. But for some strange reason the pattern was so hypnotic, I couldn't keep my eyes of it. So I went to investigate. Hmmm, full canvased, looks like it's from the 60s. Damn, FAT lapels, about almost 4 inches I think. Looked at the make: Wham! HF MTM from back in the days?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

Tried it on and fits really well! Yay for fugly lumber Xmas jacket! N/A

 

Not pictured, Corneliani tweed SC with a hand rolled silk PS in the breast pocket and a vintage Aviator leather jacket!

 

Guys, ran across this guy with the maker's tag ripped out. Any ideas who made it?

Just for kicks, ran across this fat ass Tom Ford power tie. It was about almost 5 inches wide!!!

My dude. Those are no ordinary 'gamos. The most recent SF croc shoe is solely comprised of neck skins. They dont make anything with belly, center cut tiles. (i.e. the more expensive ones). These, which I have never seen but once on someone, are of skins of the higher (could be highest, I need better pics) caliber. Incredible. Can you send me better pics? We may have a Gucci loafer repeat situ on our hands.

PM sent! I hope they are what you think they may be. If they are, they'll be headed your way. biggrin.gif

I really regret leaving the other 7-ish pairs. Probably one of my biggest regrets to date, now. One was a pair of lace-up Bruno Maglis that could not have been worn more than 6-7 times. Stamped "genuine alligator" on the sole. Had large tiles throughout. Beautiful pair. Also left a pair of ostrich skin loafers and a bunch of Artioli croc/alligator skin shoes. Couldn't have been helped though. Literally ran outta cash. Oh well. Wasn't meant to be, I guess.
