Both true. But I've owned a couple and they're really well made and canvased. Styling is pretty classic since I think they were intended to be the "executive" suit, so didn't get too into the low gorge or any crazyness. So, imho, for yourself they'll make a decent staple (unless you live in LA and wipe your ass with Kiton).
This is the funniest.... I can't even.


HF Boardroom flips for more than $40 for sure if it's in good shape.

Today's finds.

G star t shirt. Fits like a slim large. Woolrich long sleeve fits like a small medium. Both available.

For myself. Woolrich that fits me. And these beautiful shoes. Who makes these?

Looks real, but appears to missing the main belt. Pretty old. Worth 50-100 ebay bucks depending on the day.

Ughh.  If, somehow, some way, you manage to see the NWT pairs still there if you go back, and they are in the realm of 34-36R, I'd love a proxy if you don't mind.

Same goes for Off Saks, although their tie selection (brands and quantity) at the location near me is not as good as NM Last Call.
Picked up a pretty nice silver PRL tie at lunch.
Can someone explain to me NM Last call? Boston store's events says the "first call" sale is currently on going and starting thursday is a "3-day spree" is that count as the last call? Everyone's pick ups from this thing have been real nice and I want to get in on the action/

Just got them today! Thanks for including the shirt too! Pants fit really well, I thought I was going to have to get them hemmed but they fit perfectly. Stay tuned for a thrift fit...

Made the trek out to a store outside my usual circuit today. Was about to chalk it up to a loss when literally the last thing I looked at was:

Not a brand I would have ever guessed I would have happened upon in a thrift, For those unfamiliar they are a young SWD from london. Along the lines of Vivism or Norse Projects. Their shirts usually sell for around $200 new. It fits me but not sure how I would wear it so available. Tag size 4, equals about a slim medium. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






Oh sunday, I left behind a vintage brooks bros makers navy wool sack suit. They wanted a bit more than I was willing to spend and I figured it was something that Typhoid Jones was destined to find.

Last Call is Neiman Marcus' Outlet like "Off Saks 5th Ave" and the Bloomingdale's Outlet down in Wrentham

Ah yep. I was planning on making a trip down to RI this upcoming weekend anyways, going to have to stop by Wrentham I guess. And my thoughts exactly about the Folk shirt.

Edit: Just realized there isn't a NM at wrentham. Shucks.

Wow - Folk in a thrift! I've never even seen a piece in person, only online.
post #52558 of 115017

Hey guys, been reading the forums for awhile and finally got out to get some things myself.  Found this Valentino this afternoon for $7.99.  I remember reading something about some of them being better than others because of when/who made them.  From what I can recall, which may be totally wrong, they were made at the same place as some Armani stuff.  Ive attached a pic of the label.  Not sure why the close up pic makes it look so grey.  Any information would be great as im trying to learn as much as I can.

Thanks

I will echo the amazement on finding Folk at a thrift.  I definitely need to get my ass to the coasts and tear up some thrifts...

Some Scottish wool ties and some silk knits for myself.

That's not meager in my book. If that HT brown herringbone sack is in the 44-46 range, get at me.
