post #49666 of 125169
Just got back from a quick hit run. Hit up one GW that has never turned up much for me and I'm glad I did as I walked out with the best nutso pants haul I've ever had. Someone must have died because these are all 36 waisters.
1st row top to bottom: Kiton, Kiton, Zegna Su Misura, Barbera, Etro
2nd row top to bottom: Barbera, Barbera, Barbera, Incotex, Incotex, Incotex, Incotex.

Pretty nice 44R HF sportcoat.

Damn, thrifting is tedious and annoying if you're not finding anything. Finally found a couple things today... Highlights are a 42L Donegal Handwoven tweed and some more NOS vintage shooz. Copeg by Scholl NST with a bevelled and pegged waist, 11EE. Never seen a bevelled pegged waist before... Only the highest end shoes now do this, but I guess it was more common decades ago. Pics later.

No offense, but this doesn't sound like volunteering. It sounds like you are putting in time with the expectation of getting something in return. If you put in, say, four hours but take away items that could be sold on shopgoodwill.com or ebay or the like for $400, or even $100, then you are actually making a pretty good living from volunteer work. Have you considered saying, Hey, look at these jeans--we could sell them online to help the cause? Didn't think so.

Don't mean to be overly harsh. Every GW is different, the one in my area happens to do some pretty good work, I think. Not long ago, an employee in the sorting room found a Rolex. It sold for more than $12k on shopgoodwill.com. Ask yourself what you would do if you'd found that watch. The employee did the right thing, I think.

peepwall[1].gif After Mercuryman's pants haul, but was happy to snag these two. Only the 2nd pair of Milano's I've found in as many weeks and also checking Filson off my thrift to find list.

It could be promotional crap for their fragrance, I ebayed a Dunhill bag which turned out to be a gift with purchase piece of garbage for their cologne.

How much do you flip these for? I found a huge number of Farragamo novelty prints a while back and they don't see much rotation so I'm thinking of sending them to ebay.

Ya, it's been slow here. I did find a Canali and a Barbera dress shirt today and the Barbera fits me quite nicely. It's funny how it only takes one item to make a trip a success sometimes...

I sold a butterfly motif for 105 smackers last go round. I honestly think they do better than Hermes ties much of the time.

Well, I wouldn't buy one for that, but I like them a lot better than the Hermes most of the time.
