Feeling tradly today.
Vintage tweed hounds-tooth from Wes
BB slim fit OCBD, thrifted
Vintage A&F wool tie from yesterday
Vintage anchor tie clip, thrifted

So I go to this place that just opened up down the street from me. It's one of those but/sell/trade stores. I walk in with two bags of stuff, hoping to dump it all off there. Woman at the counter tells me they are only buying shit that's "trending" right now. Think ass loads of Hollister, A&F, H&M and similar garbage. Needless to say, they didn't take much of my stuff (I take that as a complement). However, nestled in amongst the bullshit, I found this gem.


Walked out of there with this sexy PRL fair isle sweater and a crisp fiver in my pocket. lol8[1].gif

I like shirts. Much better than the alternative, I've found. Esp. in this weather.

Walked into a 60k sqft warehouse on tuesday.... mind you, it was not all clothing, but there were about 2k items...

 

Highlights:

 

Shoes:

5 pairs of Church's (unworn - lightly worn) (ostrich, lizard, suede, leather)

 

Multiple of each below:

 

Jackets:

nwt: Gucci, Etro, Dolce & Gabanna, Moschino, Miu Miu, Burberry, Comme Des Garcons Homme+

 

Shirts:

helmut lang, bijan, 20 x crazy spoo-rific versace, issey miyake, dolce & gabbana, vivienne westwood, raf zimons, brioni, comme des garcons

 

and I'm closing another 2k item deal... more details on that after the break.

 

but uh... I'm taking real analysis and computability, and can't handle this thrifting/non-thrifting stuff... really overwhelmed...

 

just thought I'd share my frustration.

Few, I thought I was the only one that liked shirts. These aren't the greatest, but I have been working my balls off lately and haven't had an opportunity to get out. I was running some errands today and there happened to be a consignment shop in the same shopping center so I gave it a shot. Here we go, nothing that special but I believe brag-worthy nonetheless as they were picked up at more than thrift but what I believed to be fair prices.

 

Top Row: Brioni 16.5, Ferragamo 16.5, M-L, Zegna M (more recent I believe)

Middle Row: Borrelli Napoli 16.5, Ferragamo M, Zegna M (the most recent I believe)

Bottom Row: Ferragamo L, Ferragamo M

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This is a mother of pearl button, pretty thick, with Zegna imprinted, wtf?!

 

Now I get the Borrelli hype.

 

 

The Rainbow.

 

 

Also left about a dozen or so shirts by Italian makers. Mostly Loro Piana in a L, XL. Surprisingly I ran out of cash.

 

DM I get to post once in the last three weeks and you are before me...I hate you.

Real analysis is a BIOTCH. I've totally blocked out the content but I remember the pain. censored.gif

Nice shirts! I'm wearing a Borrelli I got from Klobber today and it's the tits!

 

PM me on that green label Zegna if it's available.

The real is hard, but a bit of fun with the right mindset.  It's the computability that is bugging me the most.  The notation/conventions are very confusing.  Nothing worse than sitting for 2 hours trying to start a problem rather than finish it.

Yeah, I was doing Physics, not CS, so I didn't have that one. On the other hand, I had Intermediate Mechanics... When I say my Quantum Mechanics class was easy and fun by comparison it should give you a feel for it.
