"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.

Very cool, thank you for the info. Now that I look at them closely, it does look like watercolor. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Mid-terms are eating up all of my time and since the thrifts are all on my route to school, and sadly, I'm still picking.


I can't stop, I think I have a problem.


Anyway, couple things of interest, save the best for last.


Looking to move these - they came for free.  5 Charvet Shirts, tagged 40-42.  French cuffs are worn, collars are a bit ratty.  Bodies good, armpits good and they still have all of their MOP Buttons.


Yours for the price of shipping.  Seriously.

Polo Shorts.  Size 32.  Nothing Special, came with the last lot.  Yours for the price of shipping.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Ok.  Meat and Potatoes.  All Available.  But not free.


Size 52 Brunello Cucinelli for Bergdorf Goodman Red Cable Knit Sweater.  Soft.  Nice.  Cucinelli.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Men's Size 44 Ballantyne Cashmere Cardigan.  Needs some Woolite and a brush or two with a sweater stone but darn is this thing nice.  Fits like a 44 and the waist and cuffs are tight on me. 


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






Now, looking for some help.  Linen Shirt.  Really nice, powder blue and khaki check on white, buttons nothing special.  Never heard of the maker/designer and Google has been fruitless (except saying he's a Men's wear designer)  Could this be an Italian locally produced item? Has a spot of marker on the collar and I'm fresh out of Carbona from a pair of wool NWOT RRL's that still processing.


Darn Salvation Army people go crazy with them markers, I need to buy stock in Carbona now.


Shirt by Roberto Biagini, Size L

Oh.  And these.  Never quite know what your going to find. Found the maker last week, forget who.  But did you know Lederhosen go for like 350 Euros???  These fit like a stiff leather glove, so I'm keeping and don't expect a thrift fit pick until I'm back in Oberstdorf.

I forgot some ties.  Keeping.  I think.  At least the wool ones are getting Vacuum Stored right now.


From Left to Right:


Burberry's Wool (Made in Great Britain)

Burberry's Scottish Woven Wool and Linen (made in Britain)

Breuer Wool

Barney's NY (maker unknown, only other marks say Made in Italy)

Gucci (pretty sure its real, and its old)

and a wild Etro

Total: $17.94 at Salvation Army.

Aaaah - still that is a grail find for finding out in the wild and not in a dedicated camera shop.

On most tracks in this set, I just give it a certain probability that a given note in D minor would play (did the same with drums) and then engineered some really long effects chains. I tried to set up an algebra of sorts in a few of them by allowing operations such as addition using some weird stuff... I'm working on organized diaries, in which the tracks will still be randomly generated, but will be indiscernible from human written compositions.

also made this earlier today:
too blue

Very cool! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The heels are nothing special. O' Sullivan. They are used by Mason, Executive Imperial and also as replacement heels, so no help there. How about a pic of the foot beds. Even a piece of the text you can see might help.

This is a total anomaly and outlier, but I totally would expect this to close at $3k.


They may be obvious, but here are the reasons that make this pair so attractive:

- Classic jean: this pair is apparently from the 40s. It is the most desirable 501 cut as it is a true slim/straight fit

- Fantastic condition: for a pair that is close to 70 years old, there is still a lot of color left in the denim, and there are hardly any wear marks

- Great pics & description: the seller makes it easy to visually very the jean's authenticity and date.

- Common size: opens it up to a lot of buyers for personal use and collecting. These may even be a decent size for the Japanese market

Some dipstick wants to return a cashmere Pringle sweater he bought from me, total BS case of buyer's remorse, but whatever. Anyway, the funny part in his SNAD case, he stated that he has "serious concerns about the sustainability of this cashmere." Fuck me sideways, guy.

Grabbed this at one of those trade-in places that specialize in the mall A's. Metal buttons, chest pockets - available

And now that Wes has been alerted - these have a V-cleat, but no Florsheim Imperial oval with red/green text inside. Thoughts?

Double french cuff (is that a thing?) on a CT shirt I grabbed a while back. Is there a reason for variable fold back length?

Pics of the finds today.

Belvest chocolate cords. Size 34 temp dibbed.



Dunhill polo size Large, also temp dibbed.




Crappy phone pics don't do these justice.

^^I have seen this on a few shirts and I believe it is the French cuff equivalent of having a 34/35" sleeve for example.
