Not quite thrift pricing, but I'll do OK. Left behind a couple of Zegnas that were too pricey and 3 or 4 Oxxford bespoke sportcoat/odd trouser combos that were huge. Oh, and two other Attolini pieces (summer suit and SC) that had moth damage. I was crushed about those.

Score on the Attolini. That is a grail label for me, still yet to find one. How bad was the moth damage? On such a sought after maker, I'm sure even minor moth damage wouldn't cause them to be a complete write-off.

They are, I would rock these if they were my size. Unfortunately they are way too big (I'm a 10.5).

No size markings, but they measure 12.5" in length. So for the larger dandy.

This time I actually found some stuff in my size, if ok-mediocre.  Nothing spectacular, but a few items to share (according to my current thrifting standards, anyway).  Oh, and viz a viz a previous discussion, what is available is available for trade or at-cost+shipping.

 

HF pants. Unavailable.

I saw this and thought, "Ohh... that's unfortunate." But I tried it on and it fit! Going to uncuff and lower the hem.  Fits perfectly though the seat, crotch, and thigh. Yay for being shaped like an athletically built boy!

AE Clayton 9D, great shape. Available.

PhotobucketMarked 39R but fits like 36R, fits beautifully. Nothing spectacular; probably only sharing this because it actually fits so well.  Have to do a thrift fit pic at some point.

 

Also picked up:

  • old Bostonian Wingtip tassle loafers, black 9D (fit like a glove)
  • cloth belt made of silk (?), looks like a blue & green rep tie but is a belt. Pretty cool with my cerulean pants.

Passes:

  • Alan Flusser shirt XL, nice brown and taupe stripes (slight mustard stain on cuff, might or might not come out. can go back for it if someone wants to risk it, really nice cloth.)
  • Gitman shirt 16.5, a bit worn
  • Norton & Sons 44, dated orphan
  • Tessori (?) 3-button orphan, EU 48R. Fit beautifully like a slim 38, immaculate S100's with nice hand and great bemberg lining, but was brown pinstripe and with dated lapels.  Thinking about going back to pick it up in the hope of finding matching pants, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen and who want's a 3-button pinstripe orphan? (No one.)  [Edit: It was Truzzi, not Tessori, though I still stand by my decision.  Which I guess is why I couldn't remember...]

post #50751 of 115157

Haven't been able to get out much lately but was able to hit up two stores over the weekend.

 

Is this the Gloverall Duffle I should be looking for? it looks exactly like this but the tag is different than the one Easy posted. 

http://www.gloverall.com/shop-item?id=1

 

(unavailable) 

 

Also grabbed this, I believe it is a 38, I have to see what my tailor can do with it (possibly available) Oh and the brand is J W Nordstrom but the fabric is amazing. 

 

 

DAKS for Bergdorf Goodman made in England, cuffed and pleated (unavailable)

These are a different shape than the Bostonians, which I have a hard time getting on but fit well once on (I'm truly a low-volume 10B, so sometimes in loafers a 9D is better if the ball of the foot is in the right place). The toebox on these AE is fairly narrow and tapered, whereas it has a rather large mouth and wide space for the heel.  Also, it's really not my style.

post #50753 of 115157

Need some quick help... Grenadine or not? It has the same pattern as a regular one but it isnt as obvious or large as some of the other grenadines ive come across... By the way, its the Brioni I found the other day...

 

post #50754 of 115157

Nice tie!

 

post #50755 of 115157

Can you guys give me a relative vintage on this?

That's the Reichsadler. I saw a camera exactly like this at a flea market in Budapest. I come across militaria at every flea market I visit and most of it is legitimate stuff. However, I came across tables full of fake German and Japanese military items in Budapest. This camera was among the stuff, so I left it behind. I found out later that they're mostly Russian cameras from the same time period, basically Soviet Leica knock-offs. They take these and add special things to them to make them seem more rare.

Anyone could have fallen for it and sometimes it's worth the risk bringing home something like that in the hopes of it being real. I'm sure most of us at some point have thrown money at something that turned out to be fake/worthless, so don't feel too bad!

These aren't exactly my style...but they were free!




A couple of these look like they may work well as bow ties. Some patterns flop as neck ties but really shine as a bow. Also, if you feel a little sentimental about it (I would), it would be nice to get a couple converted and get some use rather than just hang on to them just because.

Been really dry lately for my usual haunts. Just some LPs and zegna jeans

There, I said it--a whole bunch of times. "Niggardly" is NOT a racist term. Has nothing to do with skin color, y'all can look it up, and please do. It means "miserly" or "overly cheap" or something to that effect. As an aficionado of the English language, I hate, and I mean truly hate, it when folks bastardize (you can look that up, too) the language. Not so many years ago, someone in government got fired for using the word "niggardly," and the Fourth Estate that was supposed to run herd on shit didn't figure out what the freakin' word meant until it was too late. The poor sap still ended up on the unemployment line. Again, and please, there are more than enough lawyers and academics who populate this thread. I happen to like the word "niggardly," although not as much as "nepenthe."
Peace.

not an obscure word in the UK, at least it wasn't when I left 13 years ago... nor was the usage of learnt... and reading it now it would be past perfect wouldnt it?
