post #49366 of 119021

Have had to slow down my thrifting lately - too much stuff to sell. But managed to pick up some loafers for myself, and a few other things which I will post later when I have time.

Plus it seems like there are enough bike enthusiasts here that won't mind. My (finally completed) new (to me) ride:

Right now I have it set up as a FSSS (full-suspension single-speed). Will possibly make it geared in the future, but so far I'm diggin' this.

Don't feel too bad, I can't take a good thrift fit pic to save my life. Looks good by the way.

I don't pick up a lot of ties, but this vintage one was too awesome to leave behind.

Oh...yeah. Also I walked into a hole in the wall dump of a thrift store I usually avoid. It's in the ghetto and the stuff is all piled high in trash bags. Not very many clothes, and they are all moth eaten. The only pair of shoes ever saw in there looked like a dog chewed on them. As soon as I hit the door, I saw a sweet pair of Shells from across the room. Pics later tonight after clean-up.

Family day at Salvo netted me this 42 T blazer with, I guess, brass buttons (certainly not 14K gold) ....

 

 

 

 

Now, questions.

 

Would anyone be in on a vintage Chaps corduroy suit? 41 R. Awesome. Flatfont. No cuffs. Great buttons. Fantastic lining. But made in Korea. Is there a market for this?

 

 

And is this BB old enough to be collectable?

shoutout to ian erickson. jacket arrived yesterday, looks great. and thanks for the bonus tie!

I would if it was vented and the cord wasn't worn. peepwall[1].gif

Pretty sure it has a center vent.

I just started thrifting in TC, do you find that the Goodwill's around here ever get anything good? I've found the men's shoe selection to be terrible. My best spot for quality so far has been Unique but it's for profit so the deals aren't as good.
