Thanks Dustin... you have actually been inside, and still say that....regardless of my piles of suits.
Since you have seen both the inside and the outside. This is for you and the appreciation of the group...
This is the house the very first time we went to see it....7 years ago
This is after some minor improvements...
MINOR ???? Amazing I want to be just like you when I grow up !!!!!!!!!!!post #53855 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:41pmpost #53856 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:42pm
Are you sure that's Martin Greenfield? I was under the impression that MG didn't do all BBGF...only the ones where there's a small "MG" present on the label, as below:post #53857 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:46pmQuote:Quote:Quote:Quote:Quote:
There seems to be a lot of confusion about Gant in this thread, I figured I'd share what I know, to enlighten my fellow thrifters:
Gant by Michael Bastian- Most expensive line, current, also only started F/W 2009 (10 maybe) so very recent
Gant Rugger- Also recent, step bellow bastian but same idea, remakes of archival gant clothes, think this line only started 6 or so years ago so also quite recent
Gant- Shield logo, recent but not worth picking up, along the same idea as penguin or ben sherman
Gant Blue Label- Crap, 90's, 80's, 70's cheap remakes of trad, lots of polyester, If you can find shirts that are all cotton they can be good for you but not flipping
Gant The Rugger, Gant Shirt Makers, Or Gant Made for X Men's Shop- Vintage tradly goodness, not sure about the flipabbility but definitely nice stuff. The Rugger often refers to the fit (tapered body) however I have seen Gant The Rugger Blue Labels which I think lean towards later 60s Early 70's and can be pretty nice.post #53858 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:51pm
I did exactly what I said I wouldn't and bought something not my size.... on the first time out, and probably made a mistake, because it was literally just a whim. But that doesn't mean I won't post them and make an ass of myself.post #53859 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:51pmQuote:

You could have done far worse. They won't flip for much, but the quality is okay--better than any mall brand.post #53861 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:57pmQuote:Originally Posted by staxringold
Bluebook would need more.
See, e.g., Mexicutioner v. Good Taste, et al., 542 S.F.2d 1137 (2012)
Assuming the SF reporter only covers the Thrifting court, of course. Otherwise you'd need
See, e.g., Mexicutioner v. Good Taste, et al., 542 S.F.2d 1137 (D. Thrifting. 2012)
Actually, it's online, not a published reporter, so the full date makes sense
See, e.g., Mexicutioner v. Good Taste, et al., 542 S.F.2d 1137 (D. Thrifting. Nov. 14, 2012)
Wherefore art thou, pin cite?post #53862 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:57pmQuote:
I suppose this is worth figuring out. Given the size of and stitching around the label, wouldn't they both be from the same manufacturer regardless of the MG monogram?
Edit: Thanks master Spoo. Is that Ver Say See tie I posted above worth a damn?post #53863 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:58pmpost #53864 of 13872811/14/12 at 8:58pm
AVAILABLE XL Patagonia Synchilla fleece pullover.
Chest = 26"
I usually don't find stuff that fits for me, but I had a good week:
Somehow I managed to find a new Patagonia jacket amongst the crowds on monday. It's a relief because my wife was starting to catch up in the gore-tex products count.
PS and "Ugly Sweater" for our Boston Terrier pup that we're picking up on Saturday!

Yeah, I guess that would make sense. I just could never discern why some labels - that were otherwise identical - had the tiny MG and others did not, so I went with what seemed to be the most obvious, but apparently incorrect answer.
