Hey Guys!

 

It's been a long while (too long a while, IMO) since I've been able to get in on the action here.  Either way, lots of cool stuff has happened re: my Etsy shop during October.  I wanted to give a shout out and thanks to Vox Sartoria for linking to a BB no. 1 sack suit back on the 10th AND another shout out and big thanks to the guys over at PutThisOn for including a few items from my shop in an "eBay Roundup" last week as well as another mention this past weekend.

 

 

"VERY NICE!"

 

And finally...  here's some of my October highlights.  UNAVAILABLE.

 

1. Borrelli Napoli "ROYAL COLLECTION" 50% cotton / 50% linen dress shirt 16 1/2 | 42.  Made in Italy.

Clearly this is a raw nerve for you, if you are so unhappy about having to remove hangers from clothes for minimum wage you should consider unionizing or putting up signs that all hangers must be removed by patrons.

finds;
Canali coat in 40R, my size but available straight up for a barbour or a nice trench.

Whoaaaaa. In love with this inlove.gif  It's a good thing the shoulders are a little wide for me, because otherwise I would cry about being poor.

Weird, I just sold this exact same looking jacket on etsy last week. Think it even was a 40.

Holy Great Gatsby! That thing is F to the U.

post #51126 of 117944

GOOD DAY TODAY! :D

 

Picked up a pair of AE Sanfords in 10.5D, polished them, listing tonight!

 

 

And I picked up this blazer. It's a Martin + Osa so I wasn't expecting anything special, but then I saw that apparently it was woven in England...

 

 

 

Perfect condition. Size 46. Worth anything more than the 8 bucks I paid for it? Guess I'll find out. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anybody have any idea what it's worth?

That happens sometimes.  I remember that I once sold a pair of AE somethingorothers on eBay to a guy in Michigan (or was it Ohio?) and Nataku ended up finding the same shoes in the same size and color at a thrift store in his city.  I wonder if the guy you sold it to ended up redonating it at the Mass. Ave. Boomerangs in Cambridge?  patch[1].gif

Finally putting a few things away after a little thrift journey through Wisconsin last weekend, nothing much at all for a lot of stops:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Eton Light Blue French Cuff Shirt 16/41



Cal Craft USA Made Harrington Jacket (small?)


Couple of vintage USA Made hunting jackets



Records (Milt Jackson, Cannonball Adderly, Ray Charles & Milt Jackson, Soul Makossa, Bill Withers, Archie Shepp, Curtis Mayfield)

Ran out to the nearest store on my lunch for the first time in weeks and ran into Nataku who had the place staked out. Had a good chat instead of flipping through the racks.

Some of these finds lately are the best in recent memory. Remind me to take the first 3 weeks of October to permathrift next year.

Three button leather jacket. The leather felt quality, I think, but I don't really know.

No tags anywhere ...

Medusa head buttons felt like plastic ...

Dunno dude, all that checks out AOK on the Spoo radar so far. What else you got?

Definitely. Looks like the (highly profitable) 1991 Indian collection to me. Got a pic of the front?

The Indian collection makes sense.

Well.
"Look," says I. "It ain't cool to block the aisle with a cart and go wandering. What are you, new?"
He was lucky I was in a good mood, having just scored a Willis and Geiger safari shirt. It was just sitting there, label open to the world, where he'd already been. Guess he really was new.

 

I know what you mean. Today, at the thrift store, standing in the middle of the aisle, some middle aged dude was chatting it up on the phone while I was trying to squeeze by saying, "Excuse me", mind you, I'm not that large at 170 lbs; that mofo stood there. I made an effort to slowly get by to catch his attention. Still, he stood there like a log. So, I said, "Excuse me" again, this time loud enough for him to hear. His response, "Yeah, yeah, yeah." I finally was able to squeeze pass him while making contact with him. I was so pissed off, I thought about turning around and elbowing him in the back of the head. ffffuuuu.gif

That might be true but we can do our part to help them do their job easier by removing the hangers and leaving them on the rack. Food for thought.

He was adamant about it not fitting without even trying it on, but he did say, "Hickey Freeman! You know who wears that?" " .... "  "Bill O'Reilly!"   Another woman was picking up sportcoats for fabric uses.

 

I should stop trying to help people.

Similar here but I once gave a suede jacket to a polite young man that fit him pretty well. He was very appreciative. I was happy. satisfied.gif

I felt really bad for her. She was a trooper for keeping that smile on her face as she told us she's in constant pain. cry.gif

With all respect to Eazy, you win the jazz record thrifting prize this week.
