Wow! Nice score! Didn't even know they made speakers. You're in Fla, right? Pretty sure they were based in Miami.

Tell me about it...The shoulders are lipping off...Moral of the story: if you are loosing weight make sure to do bunch of heavy shoulders lifting to keep them the same size.

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 =)

 

Thumbs up for next gen thrifters!

Nice belt. A good gold for cash trader should give you like 25 per gram of 14k gold. That looks like a nice chunk of gold. Great find!



Picked up these. Pringle flat front, slim, real nice and already drycleaned! my size also. Na



ties. Bb, bb, bb, gucci all available except green bb

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

If the guy had a sickle cell crisis, bad feedback is his last worry. Just saying! You may give them some time.

Couple of things...

Is anyone interested in getting a trade box started? I had something like a pocket square trading box in mind. It could work just like the tie swap boxes and pocket squares are light weight, so I thought that would be a decent place to start. Simple rules could be something like only natural (i.e. wool, cotton, silk) and/or only handrolled squares. Quote me if you're interested and we'll see if there is enough public interest.

Does anyone know of a good source for wine/maroon/burgundy pants? I tried a pair on at Brooks Brothers when I was in the US and they were low on sizes. Found a pair that fit well lengthwise, but tight at the waist. There was no fabric to let out of the waist. I'm still thinking about them, so if anyone can point me to a nice source, I'd appreciate it!

Done, thanks!

 

I'll let you know if I find any. I did find a nice pair of charcoal Corneliani for PRL pants, size 33 today... 

post #48503 of 114438

I think I was thrifting in the wake of a huge asshole today. Clothes thrown everywhere and almost nothing good left. Grabbed a few things though:

 

 

Vintage Gloverall duffle... pretty sure this is a women's though. Also, the toggles will need to be fixed. Still, available for cost+ shipping to anyone who's lady (or them) fits these measurements:

 

p2p - 21"
shoulders -17"
sleeve - 23"
length - 34"

 

Next up, a Hermes tie with an ugly grey stain/mark on it. Anyone have a silk tie spot cleaning method they can send me? I would be incredibly grateful!

 

 

 

And lastly, NWT Eton 6-fold for me.

I actually thought of you with those pants, but I didn't want you to think I spam you with PRL stuff on eBay satisfied.gif Pics when you get them, they look awesome! I can wear/tailor W29-31s if by some weird chance you find something similar!! biggrin.gif

If those aren't pleated I might be interested if Hans isn't.

Nice little haul today. 

 

Brooks Brothers Made in Italy. Navy windowpane. Not exactly a staple, but fits me like a glove without alterations. Anyone recognize the tag? Saw the same tags on a Fendi today. 

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Some nice J Press trousers. Probably from the same owner of the sport coat I nabbed last week. Both are unavailable at the moment. Need to consult with my tailor.

Saks 5th Ave, made in Italy, cotton jacket with working button cuffs. Not available, fits me and fills a hole in my wardrobe. 

 

 

NWT UNIS sport coat. Probably going on B&S. Very, very, slim. 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Coolest item of the day. Need some help on this. Evisu selvage denim. Probably going on B&S.

Wow! Nice finds, especially on the NWT Unis and Evisu. Most Evisu jeans I've seen is undesirable, gaudy garbage (probably because they're fake).. Those that you have there look really nice. Buckle back, selvedge, what looks like raw denim, etc. I'm no expert, but aren't Evisu made in Japan?

Yeah, the made in Italy really confused me. Between that and the buckle back, I figured it was worth a gamble. I'll see what the S&D folks have to say on this.

A NWT Unis SC in a size 38?  That's a grail if I've ever see one.  If you can thrift something that Nice Try, Bro will unequivocally agree is pimp shit, you've won the internet.  It's definitely the best thing I've seen posted in the past week.
