I already had things I wanted more and had reached the limit I had set for myself for thrifting today, but I'm really questioning whether it was wise to pass up on it. If anyone is interested, I have the pictures of it, and I can go back and get it (it would be available/for sale, its size M). I really need to increase my repertoire of thrifting knowledge its holding me back haha, but reading this thread is murderously addicting and long. First world problems....

 

Yes, go back. And I'm not just saying that because I've been looking for a sweater exactly like that and that's probably my size.

That sounds correct: http://www.foremostjewelry.com/facs_gold.html

And may I add... DAYUM!

I actually like this. My tie method is to go through and see if there is a tie that looks like I'd wear it. If there is, then I check the label. I've seen way too many ties I'd never wear (because they're ugly as sin) that had impressive labels.

Are you fucking kidding me???? This is after I sent a message to the buyer today......5 days after the auction ended.

I would give them the benefit of the doubt. I got a similar one a few months back. There is an inspiring thread about it here.

It was amazing to see a forum "family" react to the circumstances.

Unfortunately, life doesn't stop just because you bid on something on eBay. I'd hang with the guy for a while.

On a lark, stopped by one store here last night. They have that hanging-up tie arrangement too, actually - it's a pain in the ass. Especially because it makes it near impossible to tell at a glance which ties are new and which aren't (because the color is hidden). GAH.

Anyway, this store has been jacking prices hard and fast, so I paid a lot for the coat, but the shirt was only 2.99, cheaper than Walmart-brand shirts, so I can't complain. I have no idea where the once-in-a-while random RLPL finds are coming from around here, because there has never been a store that sold it (other than Filene's). The best part? The shirt is my size, though I'm still undecided if the sleeves are long enough to work or not.

Apologies for the shitty pics, I'm trying to get back into this a little bit as my schedule allows - I have a huge backlog of stuff I haven't even mentioned here, from the period April-now. Unfortunately no Hermes overcoats wink.gif

Polo RL toggle coat - size L, 100% wool, available

Those are cool. If they were a size and a half larger I would grab them from you.

Me too. After seeing that post, I did some searching for "seal skin" and "sealskin" on eBay and sadly netted Gornisht mit Gornisht.

I'm not sure if anyone's seen a thread on SF from a lady who had some seal skin shoes made by Dacks that she tried to post on ebay. (The leather was kind of wrinkly and wavy - didn't do it for me at all). They sent her a cease and desist order.

By far my fav item!!! I assume you're a car guy? Most people wouldnt know the name.

Most definitely. I love finding automobilia in thrifts. Now if only I could find the Ettinger for Bentley or Asprey for Ferrari stuff in a thrift...

Most of you have probably haven't seen a pair of seal skin boots. They have silver/grey translucent 1/2" fur all over. I've worn some in -40 and they keep your feet are toasty. These were hugely popular in Canada in the 1960s and 1970s.
These were $9.99. If anyone wants to run a PETA gauntlet, get at me. They're about an 8.

I actually liked these a lot and they'd probably fit. I showed them to my wife as she passed and she asked from which animal they were made. I told her and she gave me the saddest possible look. I'm not sure how she'd feel if I brought them home.

I just read the entire thread. Really interesting to see the outreach. If I ever end up in the hospital [knock on wood], I'll have my wife post something as well.

I have a question or dilemma for the thread,Is it worth picking up Calvin Klein pieces now Since I see a lot of It in thrift stores recently? If so What do I look out for? Thanks in advance
post #48494 of 121716
Someone buy these wool/alpaca trousers (PRL, Corneliani) for $35. After you're done, find the exact same pair in my size for the same price. Thanks! biggrin.gif

"Dad, look at this? Brioni"

My son picked up a Brioni today for $3.99 to flip on Ebay.
I guess when he gets his license I won't even have to
go out anymore =)
