Hey man! Thanks! I am going to see if I can come up with some stuff in your sizes and just stuff a box. It will probably only be a small box with, like three items however.

I think they were white. I have a pair already lying around, that I don't use. If someone could get some proper use from them, let me know.

I really like these. Too bad they aren't a half-size smaller.

Thanks Sam,

 

Well, funny you ask. The main color is fine, but the accent wall color clashed a bit, so it is being repainted tonight. Much better than the previous color (still visible on the window trim). It was sort of an orange sherbet color....the room had pink carpet too. The original hardwood had to be removed due to powder post beetle damage.  The "new" flooring was originally intended to be the floor in my new 15'x28' ebay office...but the unexpected damage had to be repaired.

 

The project has to be done by tomorrow night...expect floor finishing. We have 8 guests coming for the weekend, and are currently living in our only guest bedroom....the other one is taken over by 15 guitars and 200+ sportcoats. Lol

Seems like you already know the answer on the Dior--doesn't look like a Dior Homme pattern, has a Christian Dior backing, isn't made in Italy, and the tag is in Spanish and references Argentina.

No clothing related pics today....although I will have yet more from Friday's haul tonight or tomorrow.

 

The bedroom remodel that has been taking up all my thrift-thread time is nearly complete, just a little trim work and painting remain....plus floor refinishing.

 

Speaking of floors, my thrift brag for today is my "new" hardwood flooring. Reclaimed from a 120 year old farm house for just under $1/sq ft. Reeeedonkulous deal, considering the same would cost $13-$18 /sq ft new. 

 

Oh yeah...that chair was also thrifted for $3 and re-upholstered by my wife and I. The chair legs were re-purposed from a kitchen table, which I converted to a huge coffee table for our living room.

The whole project started by me needing this new closet.

These are re-purposed french doors found in a dumpster dive they were originally exterior doors which were about 18" taller, solid brass hardware was still intact.

Fucking gorgeous room, Wes! You guys did a great job!

I guess I haven't cleaned that mirror in our guest room, um, ever. Apologies. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




The pattern is exactly what I was looking for -- none of the red/yellow accents or anything like that.




Coat looks good, but I'd also say it's just a bit long. I would look into shortening it though, even if it isn't recommended in most cases. It fits you well overall and it is a great jacket!!!!

EG for RLPL velvet smoking slipper 10.5

I have been considering buying something just like these for about a year! I had actually just clicked "watch" on a pair and really wish these were my size.

Navy Stripe in my size (keeping):


Gray Stripe in my size (keeping):


Gray Stripe, nice high gorge, flat front, could probably wear, but might end up selling:


2 days after finding the zegna cashmere that was too big, I find this in a wonderful blue (pics don't do it justice, keeping):




And finally I found this - dated 1963. Fish mouth lapels like a mofo but still neat:




Awesome finds and the coat looks great!

Nice prices! I just left a Breuer tie today that I held onto for a few minutes and had regretted since I left. You may have inspired me to go back!

It's also unvented which also leads me to believe outerwear. Here's some thrift fit pics, can anyone help?

Afraid that I'll have to concur, I would say it's an orphan. Like someone else said, probably part of a flannel suit. If you like it, keep an eye out for something with cashmere as it gives a jacket great texture.

Wes, looks great! I love that floor...old wood has a charm that can't be replicated, no matter how many times it's been sanded down. I'd love to see the coffee table and the inside of that closet! If you're struggling on the accent wall, have you considered painting it to match the rest of the room? A lot of times an accent wall will simply break a space up and make it feel smaller. Just an idea to save you some stress for your guests!

Yeah that place... if it's the same location I stop at occasionally they're the ones with the $1,000 average looking vintage stereo system a couple years ago.

Just grabbed a pair of Acne jeans for myself and C.P. company black sneakers at the local trade in shit hole. I'm ignorant in regards to SWD - can anyone enlighten me on CP company? At first glance I assumed they were Common Projects, but google suggests different. Running to class now, but I'll throw pics up tonight.

Passed on an orange, corduroy, relatively tame skeet blanket at $10 and a pair of beat Nudie Glenn Flare 30/32 around 10 as well. Likely going to grab the RG within the week, so let me know if the bootcut deal is still your thing.
