went back to the goodwill where I found the Hermes sweater... Looks like the donor left more goodies.

Chocolate color Belvest cords size 34x32 they look unworn and are amazing. Available for now.

Dunhill polo size large. Looks unworn aswell. Available

Pics when I get home.

Dont really see belvest around here. Looks like it does good on the bay, anyone familiar with them

This was a recent find from "a friend of ours," if I can use some veiled mafia-speak. happy.gif

I know this isn't everyone's taste, but I am considering picking this thing up soon. It's huge, heavy and old (cue stereotypical mother-in-law joke).

two BC finds in this thread still stick out in my mind:
DM7 found a BC cashmere coat in a medium grey. inlove.gif
33CK found a BC navy jacket IN HIS OWN SIZE in a thrift. bounce2.gif
those two brags haunt me. i even remember acosbysweater's post regarding DM7's find, he said "it's so wearable it hurts." (still remember that off the top of my head). like i said, those two brags haunt me.

I picked up a cashmere BC sweater for $4 about a month ago that also went to 330CK.

While we're on the topic of furniture, if anyone can find me a nice office chair for my work-from-home gig that can be shipped to me reasonably, I'd be much obliged.

Picked up a few cool things today - all available.

Two super thick Malo casua lsweaters 100% cashmere, tagged Euro 52. These are really really nice, has anyone else had experience with Malo?

Vintage Woolrich shirt - leather collar and elbow patches tagged a Large.

So I had the day off today and spent it on some much needed (thrift)retail therapy. First up a pair of mystery shells. The last letter in the makers name is S. Sorry for the crappy pics, lighting in here is shit today. Can somebody make up a Spoo type signal for Wes????



My first Ricci and boy is it ugly but for less than $1, I wasnt going to leave it. available


Awesome mint Brioni sz XL that the previous owner wrote his name on the collar. It doesn't show through, but still, ffffuuuu.gif available

T&A with 3 button MOP cuffs


BB country patchwork madras Harrington jacket, off season but it was half price, sz XL, available


The mother of all Tweeds!!!! J Press Presstige Donegal Mist Tweed, cashmere, kid mohair, wool. Is it safe to call this a "grail tweed"? Or "greed" for short. devil.gif Marked a 39S. Available


Another "greed", though maybe a little less so.


But my favorite finds of the day by far, two rather large prints by George Write Pinx. Both show polo players in the heat of a match. After I post this, I'm going to strip and refinish the frames. And so the slow conversion of my apartment into a Ralph Lauren store continues......

Nice haul! That J Press is sexy!

 

Anything inside the shell shoes?

 

I LOL'd at the RL store comment. I loved the one in Atlanta when I visited. I definitely would move in if I could.

Yea, the numbers in the 3rd pic and I can just make out an S that appears to be the last letter of the makers name.

You wanted to show us your etchings? biggrin.gif

Amodex is really good for removing pen stains from fabric - you can find it in most fountain pen shops. I think I also saw it at Office Max, but I am not certain on that one.
post #50172 of 125361
I also left behind a ton of stuff I probably would have picked up only a couple months ago, I just don't like having piles of shit lying around, neither does the wife. Zegna Couture XXX pointy square toed shoes if that makes sense, among others. I also saw a cashmere and vicuna topcoat and nearly shat myself again, until I saw it had about 300 moth holes in it. ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

"show your etchings" is a very old joke.


Amidox was in reference to the name on the shirt collar. If you want to remove it, or if you see similar in the future it might be worth the effort. It doesn't do as well on old stains, and it depends on how much work you want to put into flipping. In my area, a lot of thrifts have marks from Last Call and Off Fifth on the tags - Amodex is really useful for that.
