post #49636 of 125456
Huge, huge, huge shout out to Oocoony for hooking me up with something I've been looking for since I started posting on this forum, pics when it's cleaned and ready to go. Also a sweet vintage Harris tweed hounds-tooth blazer with 3 patch pockets that fits like a glove, also at the cleaners. Seriously, he's one of the most generous guys on here. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif And to Brianpore for a kick ass pair of BB trousers. Always good to trade with you sir. cheers.gif

Starting off with a closet cleaning item. I bought this Burberry Black Label pea coat on eBay a couple years ago. I'm 99% sure it's real, but since I don't know much about the Black Label other than it's only available in Japan, I thought I'd let the label masters here verify before I sell something fake. Also, if anyone's interested, let me know. Marked an L, but in fitting with the Japan theme, it fits more like a slim Medium in US sizes.

On to the thrift finds!
Unfortunately, I got a slight case of food poisoning this week which knocked me out for the entire day I usually devote to thrifting. Therefore, only a few items this week. frown.gif
Domenico Vacca shirt
IMG_0955.jpg
Awesome English Country Classics sweater. Wool and suede patches. Made in England. Specialized outfitter that has their items made in limited numbers. Retail is pretty high, but worth it because the quality is very good.
Marked M, but fits pretty loose. I'd say probably around 42-44" chest.

Next, that Tommy Bahama T-Shirt is pretty darn awesome. I almost bought this t-shirt today because I laughed out loud flipping hangers.

 

 

Now to my brag...Non-clothing thrift story part two.

 

Same store as the Roomba I found.

 

Had to take that route home from work (one bridge was closed) and decided to stop in. Walked around the whole store and absolutely nothing. As I am about to leave I stopped to check out jewelry and take a picture of this as it was too hilarious hanging up in a goodwill.

 

 

1) Basically too big to walk but not big enough to ride a hog!

 

2) Too funny!

 

3) That's a great piece to hang my ties!!! My girl will kill me if you proxy that for me...

 

BTW, the PS jacket you hooked me up is at the tailor's. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. Pics to follow!

Right place because people here know every damn thing. Amazing really.
BTW CapnWes has zillions of them!

Oh no, very much the right thread for me.  Definitely not allergic to thrift items.  I've become somewhat addicted to thrifting myself.  My finds haven't been noteworthy at all, but they have allowed me to build somewhat of a professional wardrobe on the cheap at a time when I needed it.  Before I read this thread and Styleforum in general...Jos A. Banks was what I was being pushed towards for new suits.  Since then I was able to pick up a Brooks Brothers Suit, relatively nice Bostonian shoes for about $40 along with numerous shirts and ties.  The suit is a 346, so not anything anyone would oh and ah about, but for that price plus a little tailoring, it fills a hole in my wardrobe until I can afford/find better.  I've seen several Alden and AE, but alas, nothing in my size.  Anyway, I appreciate all the help from a relative noob fashion-wise.

Welcome to the forum from another noobie. You will hear it often, but grabbing something of quality can do two things.

 

1. Creates the ability to trade nice items here for stuff that does fit / sell items for items you desire.

2. Help someone else in need who can't find that size by them.

 

Oh, and if you run across any of those in a 12....mwink[1].gif

Pics to come, all Oxxfords are MTM "real man" sizes and available. The DB just needs arms lengthened then it's a perfect fit. Beige houndstooth, really cool. Not sure if my frame can pull the shoulders and wide lapels off though...

Whoa! What size?

—passes: Purple Label cords, Canali, Norman Hilton, Zanella
other stuff
—Pendleton robe (same flannel used for their shirts)
—Massimo Bizzocchi tie

—mid-century-looking coffee table (is this anything?)

These would be a mega grail find for me. Especially in my size.


Keep up the crazy finds, guys! Seems to be raining Hermes lately! Ties, lambskins jackets, sweaters, shirts.,,,,!
post #49646 of 125456

The WW2 boots I scored were amazing to look at, but after wearing them a few days, they would get all cracked up. I'd re-polish, and happened again so I sold em.

Shout out to the Capn!

Fit pic coming Monday!

Meanwhile, just imagine this, minus the bowtie, vest and Harrison Ford.


The Andy J. folded up in the breast pocket was a bonus!

And you just missed out on these babies...my size too!!!
