Today:

This is no Baldessarini, but it is a USA-made Hugo Boss coat


Robert Graham mainline on the left, "Freshly-Laundered Shirt by Robert Graham" on the right




Another plaid wool blazer, this time from Pendleton. Unlined, and pretty old, judging from the union tag. Available, I think it's a 36R Measurements (Click to show)
Shoulder: 17"
P2P: 20"
Sleeve length: 24"
Jacket length: 30"

J&M Aristocrafts in really great shape


Zanella, not unicorns unfortunately


And IanErickson, I will stop by on the way home from work tomorrow to check if those shoes are 11.5

^^^ Nice Pendleton!  I never seem to find Pendleton SCs worth picking up... any moth damage on that one?

I did a pretty thorough examination at the store and I didn't see any. Still haven't noticed any while moving it around my room.

Saw six new Golden Fleece ties tonight, including a seven-fold. Unfortunately, they were all 4" or wider baldy[1].gif

@DeadBoy

 

I am a true 13 and they were too tight for me. I could not believe I found a pair. Most of the shops in my are are shopped hard. Let me know if you are interested.

Bad ass find man! Welcome to the club. I found a pair of worn once or twice Lopez Loafers a couple of weeks ago. Looked like a retailer donated them.

+1 on pics!

I've noticed that the increased traffic at thrift stores isn't necessarily all bad. There's a lot more eye candy combing the racks than there used to. They can be quite the distraction, though.

At thrift prices these are still an amazing score. I really hope you picked them up...

Nice ties. I need to learn more about them. I pass all the time.

I actually dont like eye candy when im out hunting. Its way too distracting and it drives me insane because I know I cant walk up and spark up a conversation as easily as when im at a bar.

oh my these are nice.


picked up 3x EZ si misura (sp?) which fit as close to a glove as I like a shirt to, which was nice because EZ tends to be entirely too roomy for me. Some lanky rich dude didn't need them any more, score!

These things are baller though, so i need some ideas. Stance is weird but natural lol, im a stocky dude. HF Blazer thrifted by me for 5, brioni shirt from my man CottonDockers, Pants Zanella Platinum unicorns thrifted by me for $4, shoes Church's consul custom grade Mercuryman via EazyE, not seen Baume and Mercier watch. Thrift fit 1st edition (Click to show)





next two are to try to better illustrate color.




It's funny, after talking to you via text and on the forum, I still just assumed you looked like you avatar. biggrin.gif Looks good but what was mentioned earlier, the jacket looks a tad short. That could be just from the way you are standing though. Good to see those Church's go to a good home!

It's a 50/50 cashmere/wool Aquascutum with some sort of legit fur collar. Pictures when it arrives.

Oh...sweet.....Jesus....that is awesome!!!!! Nice pick up! I think you should pair it with a Homburg.

Talk to them, smile, say hello every time you go in, learn their names, say "Hi, [insert name here]" and don't be a scowling jerk like some of the customers I'm sure you've seen. Take them donuts! Whatever.
This paid off for me recently. just a small thing, but I knew it was a reward for "paying it forward."
Rhoda, who works at my local SA, actually encourages me to come in and buy stuff to flip. She is so friendly to me now that she suggests things for me and hopes I find things ahead of others. They're living month to month on the store rental, and she appreciates my loyalty and understands that regulars like me are helping them out.
They're also pricing some things higher now in hopes of making the rent.
I walk in last week, find a Polo SC in great shape, it's priced $9.99, which is 2x-3x the usual. She looks around when ringing me up. It's half-price day for every tag color except the one on this particular jacket...and says "Honey, this too expensive." Rings it in at half.
Rhoda rules. Small victory, but that rule "Don't be an ass" will eventually pay off for you, somehow.

This is true. I've gotten to be on good terms with a dude at the SA down the street from my house. I go in there 4-5 times a week in a good week. He's given me the in's and out's of what goes on there, they can't buy anything form that particular store, but they get discounts at the other stores etc. He also happens to be a collector of records, so whenever there is a stack of them in back that hasn't been put out yet, and I come in, he lets me know and lets me have a pick through them. He also randomly give me discounts on clothing because I shop there so much. I know this goes against some of you guys code of thrift store conduct, but, I don't ask for it, he just does it at the register and I'm not going to tell him to charge me the $3 or whatever for a particular item. :end rant
