GODDAMN there have been some insane things found recently. Didn't have much time this past week to go out, but found a few cool items anyhow.

PRL tweed for myself. Found this in a hopelessly unorganized Marshalls, that usually loses tags on marked down items and then re-tags them with their original marked price, causing me to wait 6 months to a year for some items to finally be marked down to something reasonable. Well, this time it worked in my favor because they mistakenly marked this down to $40. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Don't normally pick up Mani, but it was trim and the pattern was good. Will probably never wear it.
IMG_0879.jpg

This was timely. Was literally just about to buy a Gloverall or similar off eBay, then I found this. I can find nothing about George Key on the interweb. Seems to be good quality: real horn buttons, real leather, made in England. Cool blackwatch lining.

The GV is bananas! Literally.

What are you doing with the TF and what size is that. 40R and weve got a problem here.

Wait, what's that.

Oh hai. Wasn't kidding when I said I picked up a YSL.

Totally worth the 40 bucks.

Ugh, That shit's sick. I have yet to find some Rive Gauche in the wild!

 

Finally, the GOOD Yves Saint Laurent shit shows up on the board.

That yellow GV = Italian Dick Tracy, right in time for Halloween.

Wes, those Trickers are superb.

Hit two stores today... two stores yesterday. Nada at all yesterday - left a Vineyard Vines Murray Shirt due to yellow collar - they don't sell high enough to be worth the risk it won't come out (it was marked up). Ah,w ell.

Today, though, went better:

The mundane... super-recent BB supima cotton sweater, M, available
2012-10-06_00-49-22_45.jpg

About time I found a nice one of these... no remote included though, I'll have to try and call up the company and see if I can get one
2012-10-06_00-48-36_454.jpg

BAM! POW! Now if I could find a Power Glove... no, really, probably keeping this, but tempted to sell it because the box apparently makes it worth something (it looks like it's never been used, though the game isn't included)
2012-10-06_00-48-57_86.jpg

And the really sickening stuff:
Tivo Series 3... lifetime. 8.99. Worth something like 300 bucks. Seems to be working thus far, have it going through guided setup now. Probably going to sell this one because I already have Premieres with lifetime, but man, who just donates that?!

2012-10-06_00-48-16_966.jpg

Clothes-wise, I saw a sweet Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater with about 20 holes and a few other leftovers that looked like maybe there was a good donation but a flipper had been through. Will have to try to step it up a bit given the time of year!

Wow, sick, sick stuff everybody!!!

That takes me back a bit. I was one of the stupid kids that owned a Power Glove. That contraption made games impossible. As for the pad, I recall a friend having that one....

I imagine that old skool games and accessories are quite collectable. A friend of mine collects that stuff and flips as well, I remember him telling me he made $5K on a game cart from that early 90's console called the Neo Geo.

Ive been trying Oxy Clean gel stick and it works 25% of the time...last shirt I tried it on, left blue staining on the color. Im scared to try it on anything else now.

 

I want to start taking some more chances on shirts with the stains (flippable ones of course).

When all fails, try the alcohol approach, dip dab and soak it up.

The Z Zegna will say "Z Zegna" on the label. Their mainline stuff will say the whole EZ name and has a better feel to it.

Dont want to steal Shiny's thunder with his Thom Browne score...but im sure you guys would appreciate seeing some Dior Homme and not the usual Christian Dior licensed garbage that sometimes plagues this forum.

 

HIDDEN FUNCTIONAL CUFFS...

 

 

GW PRICE TAG....For the Non-Believers....

 

This thing has...

 

On-Seam Waist Pockets in addition to the normal ones, not sure if they are flap pocket ones though, the rest of the pockets are still sewn shut

 

Open Front

 

Floating Canvas Construction

 

Single Vented

 

Fully Lined

 

Satin Under Collar/Lapels

 

Button Holes on both lapels so you could move that militant key loop/button thing to the other side if you want

 

Made in Italy

 

SS/2012

 

Just needs a good pressing!

 

Best part of all?...Fits me almost perfectly!

 

 

Holly crap!!!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

This incredible SC was going to end up as some person's costume and tossed afterwards.  No content tag, but it definitely feels like part cashmere....wild.

Also found an otherwise unremarkable Harris Tweed blazer in the mix, but it fits me and has a funky lining so I picked it up.

 

Outside of the "costume" racks were these other gems.

 

BB 1818 Madison SC 42R wool houndstooth...needs a dryclean to remove a couple food spots (?) but is otherwise in amazing shape.

Sicknasty Feathered Friends down fill parka with button-on hood.  SMALL, can't believe I found one that fits....

 

Edit, for those who haven't heard of this brand, it's the Volant midweight jacket shown here:  http://www.featheredfriends.com/Picasso/Garments/Mid/VolantJacket.html

You can tell by the diagonal stitching only at the corners.  The real Dior has stitching all the way around the label...

Just kidding.  That's a ridiculous find man.

 

That's just...wrong...

also can I get some feedback on the fit of this tweed blazer? it is a hand me down and I think it might be too short but it is cool and has patch pockets and is double vented

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks, buddy! I would of totally keep those APC but the cuffs were 3 inches! Those look good on you! I'm happy for you! I dig the jacket. It's very short in a fashion forward sense. Keep rocking out in the free world!!!

Unfortunately.... That respect is going to be diminished somewhat because of the shitty ass pictures, which I'll have to settle for because I can't find the goddam cord to connect my slightly less crappy camera to my computer. So Blackberry it is.
So here's the story. I went back for an RRL shirt for a thread brother. Intended to hit just one shop. But BAM! I was hitting good shit left and right. So I decided to see if my luck would hold, and went to a local GW that I'd hit once before to very mediocre results. BAM BAM! I was freaking Reaganing! Every effing label I turned was better than the last! I mated over a half dozen orphans. I was sweating bullets and must have looked possessed. It was un-effing-believable.
Unless noted, everything is available.

Shoes:

Ferragamo (left) 9D
AE, model unknown (split toe norwegian w vibram sole) 10D. Need some love.
Shirts:

Pink, Pink (saw "14" and thought Brianpore! but I should have thought again: WOMEN's 14), Filson (taken), RRL (taken)
BB tie (not avail), CT tie, Coach square (not avail)
Outerwear:

Is this Barbour? XL, Made in England. Cuffs are a bit scuffed, but otherwise in great shape

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Trousers:

x 2, 32 x 30ish, beige and gray wool.
What's that you say? You'd prefer something higher end? OK

RLPL, 32 x 30ish
Suits & SC's:
What's that you say? You want something trad/sack? OK.

JPress solid gray, JPress green cord, Vtg BBGF, Vtg BBGF
Slimmer profile? Done.

Paul Stuart x3, 2 of which are Samuelsohn and the other is made in USA; plus BB1818
More USA made top notch quality?

How's old-school, well-made PRL blue label sound to you? Because I got 2. Left one has ticket pocket and double vent, is my size and is NOT available. Right side is dual vent and double breasted.
Not impressed? OK, how about this?

Zegna su misura, 15 mil mil. JUST a hair too big for me.
Speaking of the Italians:

Fabio Inghirami (anyone recognize this label? Looked familiar); Saks House brand Made in Canada, 100% Loro Piana cashmere; HF black 100% cashmere

What's that you say? How could I end on such a low note? Maybe you'd prefer something higher end? OK

Barbera Sartoriale. NOT available; my size And then there's the bad... (Click to show)
Here are the orphans I picked up. Probably shouldn't have, but couldn't let go of the hope I'd mate them.

Stuart by Samuelsohn navy stripe x2, RLBL USA made x1, Oxxford Super 150s x1, RLBL trou x4 + Paul Stuart trou x1.
Bitch of it is: I ran out of time. I left so many orphans and reverse orphans! BB1818, RLBL, Stuart... The orphans I did take were all half price; the others were full price. Once I learned from the floor staff that they gather up last week's 1/2 price stuff and toss it, I had to grab the orphans. Ima go back tomorrow and see if I can find the remaining mates, and will also hit another local GW to see if they got split on distribution.
What a day.

 

 

 

Wow, you totally got stuff that's well over $1,000! Well done! Got any SCs and suits around 40S?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





lol, just kidding, didn't grab the Diors, but I did pick up the YSL lol..
I saw a lot of "decent" stuff today, but didn't pick up any. The store I was at priced there things way above thrifts, even higher than the consignments. Anyway here's the highlights.
Brioni

Caruso

Brioni


Jack Taylor

For muthafuckin' David Murdock. If it wasn't a single button cord blazer, I probably would have grabbed it.

Check out this ancient Brooks Brothers. I think it's from the 20's. I may go grab that, since it's still in bomb condition. Actually, I saw a lot of bespoke things from the 20's. I'm honestly surprised at the condition most of the stuff was. Old timers sure knew how to make some good, quality clothing.

And then, there was this bad boy. This I had to pick up.

 



Wait, what's that.

Oh hai. Wasn't kidding when I said I picked up a YSL.

Totally worth the 40 bucks.

 

Holy double crap!!! That is some luck you go there!
