Couldn't say no to this as it fit almost perfectly OTR.

Anyone know Raleighs is? I couldn't find anything on Google, perhaps a longer existent department store?

I think I'll hit the Vancouver Lululemon factory outlet in Vancouver when I return in 2 weeks. Just Googled the address, although I don't think there would be any spectacular deals. Anyone want me to keep an eye out for anything for them?

I believe it is the same as the one on this wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raleigh_Haberdasher.

Now knowing that it's more about just taking the time and putting in the hours - I will be hitting the pavement this weekend to scour some shelves :)

 

Also, I do realize that this thread is simply the good stuff out of thousands of visits, but I still just needed somewhere to start - appreciated.

 

To the smart ass replies, still appreciated haha, although even at 100 posts a page, youre out of your mind!  

 

Having read the whole thread...after beginning my thrifts...I can assure you that you will save some decent change if you educate yourself first. I still have a random YSL tie and dior dress shirt laying around somewhere...

My GF wears a S/XS. I would love to pick up some stuff for her for Christmas if the price point is decent.

Agree, you just have to know what's ok, what's ridonkulous (I have now incorporated this into my SF vocabulary), and what is just plain crap. A few pages back someone said he heard other flippers getting excited over Pierre Cardin. Don't be that guy.

Never settle for anything polyester (it's one of my rules, unless it's a rain coat, then it's different). I made a lot of mistakes when I first started thrifting, like buying a few fake Hermes ties, not knowing what can be tailored, and buying Christian Dior crap, just because it's Christian Dior.

As for the "good stuff", in my neighborhood I see one good brag-worthy item every 3-6 months. It's a sea of George Forman, occasionally accented with Dior licensed and moth-eaten Pendleton.

Bro, you cant just casually mention how sarah palin snatched a used pair of pants out of your hands, and leave it to that. Deets necessary, pics preferable.

WTF +1 Didnt know Lululemon came in camo?

Alright Fellows, prepare for a barrage.

This is part 1:

Part 2 to follow tomorrow.

All wares are available at cost or near cost or trade or free or whatever....

Samuelsohn Prince of Wales Suit SZ 42R Pics, My cost = $40.
This is pretty darn mint condition, not to mention babetastic looking.





Do you think this is an ordinary outdoors jacket with red black plaid?



Wrong! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It is Saint Andrews, best jacket tweed find I have ever made. SZ seems to be like a Medium.
This sucker cost me $80 though frown.gif but I could not leave it there.


Luciano Barbera Cords, SZ 48. My Cost = $15.
Best thickest brown cords ever, one of you guys will rock these. Best thing though - these are absolutely mint, as if unworn!



Brooks Brothers Hooded Wool Silk Jacket, SZ L. My Cost = $20.
Amazing soft luxury for me. Damn fucking sucks it does not fit my arms ffffuuuu.gif. Extreme dissapointment. This jacket will fit many of you chaps I know out there, just PM me and take this out my hands.




16" Collar Shirt Haul. I will sell all three as a group for $33 (my proxy price times three).
Balenciaga, Rene Lezard, Burberry London.





Part 2 coming tomorrow fellows! Keep it up!
