+1...and do you have to keep it hot for all 3 days????peepwall[1].gif

post #53315 of 121800

Well I think it being hot helps dissolve the oxyclean, with cold water it might not dissolve as well, plus heat tends to speed up reactions. So initially, heat is good to get the mix going. Hell anyone have a hot tub? Communal shirt method gathering?

Only item I picked up at my one stop this w/e was a vintage Banana Republic linen khaki unlined barn jacket. It's tagged a large and made in Italy. If anyone has use for it let me know and I can take pictures.

I don't even launder shirts anymore. After the soak, I just rinse them and hang dry...Saves me money on not having to use detergent FTW!!!

Grabbed these a few days ago. I somehow didn't notice the right shoe had a bit of a dent in the toe box, but they look great otherwise

I also grabbed this BB Harrington in what i think is a Wool/Camelhair blend. It's too soft to just be wool. The condition is great and looks barely worn except for one small snag. Wish this was my size.

Is this a joke?

post #53320 of 121800

Hey gents, anyone has success flipping women's fur coats such as this one? It was $15. Should I have koped? I passed because although it's limited edition, they made 4999...That's totally mass production.

Both available, both quite nice actually. The CT shirt's collar is quite nice (I try to stay super-picky with shirt collars) it's just nowhere near my size. And the tie is actually kinda funky, I like it.

But this trip was more the story of what I left. First, a horribly ugly Robert Talbott. Black wool with messy looking ducks, yuck. Second was a small but nice J. Press jacket, grey check with a very thin blue and red windowpane. What kept me from buying was it was a 2 button but had this odd third buttonhole and button up the lapel. Anyone know what this is? It can button, but it makes the lapel look messed up. Finally the worst one though, a prim-and-proper looking charcoal with pinstripes Corneliani Super 100 jacket. Very clearly part of a suit and I read enough here about avoiding orphans (particularly pinstripe orphans, obviously) to not buy. Searched all the pants, looked through the suits for mismatched pants, asked a staff member to check if there were further racks in the back... Nothing. frown.gif Oh well.

You'll catch me... Been busy and tired and haven't thrifted much. I was going to go out Saturday but I re-tweaked my back and spent the afternoon watching football instead. 

 

Anyone got pics of the unstructured LP from this weekend? Pics were already gone from whatever hosting service when I got to them today.

What's the fur? What's the condition? and what's the style?

If it's rabbit, kangaroo or a less popular fur, it's not worth the effort. If it's mink, fox, beaver, sable or chinchilla, it's definitely worth it.
Are the pelts soft and supple, or crunchy? Is the fur plush or balding?
If the pelts are good, then definitely kop for $15. If they aren't great, or if the initial investment is more, you should also look to see if the style is more modern.

Just saw that it's Russel Taylor - aka, vintage fake fur. I've seen some sell in the $40 range, but for the most part, not worth the effort.
