post #51901 of 125120

I passed on a very very old Dunn & Co Harris Tweed blazer. I believe it was 10-15. I don't think I've ever seen a HT label like this one. I believe the blazer was made in scotland .

Got some good stuff today.

 

Isn't this the stuff of trad dreams?

Deets on the blazer. Probably 40 Rish (Click to show)

This probably won't interest anyone here, but will go far with the Wall Street types. The epitome of a power suit.

Good to hear that you're alive and well. Any damage? We're still waiting on Brianpore to get back to us (probably among others).

A Kiton suit and tie, Raf Simons overcoat (someone enlighten me), a handfull of Brioni, Mezlan boots, seal boots, Céline jeans, RRL jeans and I'm sure a bunch I've missed. Actually, when the east coast US shuts down, this thread also slows.

Oh, and I started drinking a couple of hours ago due to a 4 day weekend.

Looks good (that is a red beard!), but I'd swap the black shoes for something brown. Tie/shirt combo looks great, but I'd let the sleeves down on that odd jacket. Looks good overall!

Mine will be. Heh. I stumbled into something today I had been looking for for myself for some time, in brilliant shape. MF'er was my Secret Santa victim's exact MF'ing size. And not mine. ffffuuuu.gif

Wow, two huge grail finds! The La Vera Sartoriale is gorgeous !! Raf Simons is hard to come by as well and you have an overcoat to boot! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Good to hear! I was worried about all our East Coast members. Watched a video of the front of a 3 story building literally disappear from a huge gust of wind (or so it looked like) in NYC.

Had an ok day today. Couple skeet blankets and an amazing Cucinelli button-up. All are size M.

My heart sank though as I saw a guy with 5 or 6 super nice dress shirts draped over his arm that very well could have been more Cucinelli or something else crazy from the same donor. Doh!

So I recently bid on some snakeskin loafers on the Spoo eBay, which is tantamount to the heroin dealer sampling his own stock because I'm sending boxes of stuff to him nowadays.

I didn't win.

But I ended up with them because the winning bidder lives in California, where it is ILLEGAL to ship them to.

That gave me pause.

For a second.

Then I happily wore them. Previous owner (SF member, unknown) was courteous enough to Topy them, even! Hell. In a handbasket.

Brian, if he is OK, which I am sure he is - will be out of internet comish for quite some time. Jersey is the equivalent of ground zero for this storm.

I lost power for 2.5 days, which is the equivalent of a crack addict without a fix, but I am now dosing slowly and back to ignoring my family. lol8[1].gif Aside from being stuck inside with a barking dog and a cabin fevered 3 year old and a bored wife, we lost part of our front porch, which I was never particularly fond of anyhow, a few screen windows, and my wifes car got flooded, but everyone is safe. I have about 350 emails and PMs to get back to, plus 250 belts to photograph, so time for a cuppa joe and get back to work!

It's all paying tribute to the thrifting gods. I'm not superstitious, but I've noticed that I've found things that are trending on this thread. It can't be that I'm on the lookout for them because I've read about them because my stores are small enough that I go through EVERYTHING each time I visit. It will make a full circle and come back to you, so no worries biggrin.gif

I don't know Raf Simons...would you mind filling me in on the name? Where it's made, by whom, year founded, anything at all would help! Well done on the Cucinelli. I found my first last week and I'm sold...quality is unbelievable.

I know I've mentioned it before, but my wife hates my croc and ostrich shoes. Not because of anything related to animal rights, but simply because she hates them. Anyway, as long as it's not on the endangered list, I'll wear it without guilt.

I'm glad to hear that you're upbeat about the situation. I have read every update about the storm and it was all over the news here yesterday. The announcers seemed to love the word "frankenstorm," as they kept repeating it. Anyway, at least insurance will pay for a new porch that you'll enjoy more and hopefully fix/upgrade your wife's car.

I kept thinking about the east coasters as I have a list of addresses and went through it and google mapped the addresses to see if the storm would have affected the area. I assumed he was without power, but if anyone gets in touch with him, let us know!

I didn't wanna post a pic because I look a little silly in it, but I scored a Canada Goose expedition jacket in size small. Retail is around 800, and they never sell for less than 500 on ebay . I got it for 15, it was at a second hand store , not thrift, and the attached tag description just said " big ass parka".
