The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 3578

post #53656 of 121840
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!

Shit man, they're even offering free yoga classes at the Lululemon factory outlet store. I can see the conversation below happening...

"Hey man, how was your Saturday?"

Me: "Awesome dude, went to Lululemon factory outlet early Saturday morning to take a gander at the price. I decide to try the free yoga classes too. I mean how often can you say you were in a factory outlet doing yoga, while staring at chicks in yoga pants and not getting surrounded by fat people!"

Yes. Before you write a town off, spend two-three weeks on the same thrift circuit, and repeat that occasionally if you don't find anything. Sometimes, dry stretches can last a month or more.

I passed on navy Brooks Brothers Wool/Cashmere Overcoat because of price. How much would you guys go on something like that if you intended to resell?

No pics - I have to shop at these stores!

Basically, I was flipping through the "activewear" racks, looking for mispriced flipable items when "Scottsdale woman" (for those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, this is a woman who looks expensive but still disheveled) grabbed a pair of grey yoga pants from under my hands. I was about to make a minor fuss, but figured it wasn't worth it.
When I got up to the register, I watched a sales associate open up a register for her, and generally make a fool of herself. I looked over to see what I was missing.
Turns out that botoxed, highlighted, yoga-pant wearing (and grabbing) woman was the former governor of Alaska. (The SA mentioned that Bristol and her nanny also shop and consign at the store. (am I paranoid to wonder what they are telling people about me))

But it wasn't all bad. I found this "no label" scarf for $25...

I am hoping my natural cheapness will help me in that case.  I am hard to fit anyway - so I will only be buying juuuuusssttt right things for the most part, unless I truly know it's a steal.

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.

 

 

Noted.  lol

Yes, you could have.

Dunhill cashmere overcoat, 42 L, belted, mint



Will take pics during the day when I have some better lighting. Nominally my size, but needs probably $100+ in alterations, so not sure if I'll keep.

Pendletons are tricky...look for the vintage 50's versions, loop collar, flap pockets, shadow plaids sell the best....I've sold them for $40 many a time so if doubling your money works for you might have been a good deal if they were these styles.
