I've been needing some new shirts. I really lucked out today. Everything is my size. To top it off, the cashier gave me 20% off.

Zegna x 7:





Paul and Shark:



And a staple Eton to round things out:



1958–1965 U.S. Navy pea coat with cool buttons, $5, also my size:



Battistoni tie (navy, not as dark as it appears here), $9 on eBay:



Not pictured: Seinfeld season 6. I've thrifted 7 of the 9 seasons so far.


matty long legs: Wow, we don't see Sid Mashburn often around here.

ATLjon: I want that Chipp jacket. Nice!

So is RL Country recent? I pass it up now and then just because I figured it was lower priced like the Lauren label...worth picking up to flip?
post #54186 of 110275
^^ Nope, vintage - early to mid 90's IIRC. Though it seams they just started a vintage repro line but even that stuff would be grail finds at those retail prices.

Damn thats sweet, should bring in a good amount of cash!

Alright fellas...here are the results for my 2-day shopping spree. Oh yeah, just a heads up...for bragging only....

 

Was about to leave empty-handed at one of my stops when I noticed one of the workers putting new shit on the "New Arrivals" rack. Found this Theory - Puffer Vest with zippers galore.

700

 

Not crazy about the pattern, but whatever. Its Oxxford Clothes....

700

 

2 Brioni, Pleated Front, Cuffed Leg Trousers. One of them is Flannel.

Only thing wrong with them is that the Pocket Bags are all yellow and shit. Will "The Treatment" work for something like this?

700

 

I might dry to dab that Dry Cleaner writing off the label. Just found a snag while getting it ready for pics. Ugh.

700

 

Thomas Pink, French Cuff Dress Shirt in Purple, Made in UK.

Funny story about this very shirt, I tried to get a discount because I had found another one in pink (the color). Exact size, French cuffs, but the pink one was cheaper. The fuckers wouldnt budge and in fact try to charge me more saying that "ohm theyre supposed to be $13.99". I told them to go suck a cheetah's dick and I left the shirt. Anyway, here I am like a month later and I got it for $1.99 instead of the $7.99 or whatever I wouldve paid them before....

700

 

Borrelli. Needs button replacement and Collar treatment.

700

 

Luciano Barbera, Sport Shirt. I actually bought this one so I could steal the buttons and pop them on the Borrelli above but im having second thoughts now.

700

 

I guess this one's the winner. Finamore Black Label.

700

 

One more Borrelli for the road....

700

 

As far as what I left behind...

 

Oxxford Clothes for Neiman Marcus 2-Button Super 150s Orphan in Tone on Tone Glen Plaid.

Could find the pants and the lining inside was seperating at the seam by the vent.

 

Turnbull & Asser Bespoke End on End Dress Shirt.

The collar edges were frayed to shit...almost bought it just for the buttons but I wasnt prepared to spend almost $8 for that.

 

Borrelli End on End Dress Shirt in Blue.

Originally I was gonna buy this for the buttons, then when I was inspecting all my finds before checking out, I guess someone had already taken every single button off the shirt haha.

 

...and bunch of other shit that im too tired to list now.

 

I wanna ask....

When it comes to Orphans, do you leave them behind 100% of the time?

I could leave behind a BB orphan or something along those lines that is common, but if you were to come across a Kiton orphan, do you still leave it?

I wanna hear what you guys think.

Huh. I have a good friend who lived in San Francisco for a long time and have never heard those.

 

Lol let me rephrase, those expressions were used pretty often in Nor-Cal high schools during the 90's and early 2000's. biggrin.gif

Generally, I will pick up orphans if they could be passed off as SCs. I pass on most of the pinstripes unless it's BBGF above. I do have a Brioni striped silk SC clearly it was meant to be worn with white/off white chinos. shog[1].gif

I've seen some talk about Neiman Marcus Last Call in here before. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up (if it wasn't already posted) that today is the second and last day of their Thanksgiving sale, everything is 40% off. If I did not have obligations today it would be bye bye bank account.

4. Receive shirt.
5. Pull out brass collar stays.
6. Guard them with your life and use them in all shirts.
EDIT: Benefit of my method vs ASW is, with mine, you end up with a shirt, too!
Here's how I store mine:
Photobucket
I have about 4 or 5 other pairs that don't fit in here, but are being held in reserve for when these bend/fail/get accidentally sent to the cleaners.

Do you buy shirts just for the stays? Anyone looking for them, I picked up a bunch of them at Neiman Marcus in a variety of sizes for around $10. They are in the section next to ties.

Anyone want a pair of recent Incotex for Zegnas? They're wool, tan and tagged a size 36 and the measurements are: 18.7in waist with a 32.26in inseam. According to the listing, there are a couple of "signs of wear," but when I look at the picture that they point it out, I can't really tell. It might be a pull or light stain, it isn't very noticeable. They're listed at €20 and it would be €15 to ship them to me and another €10-15 in shipping to proxy them to you. It would come out to around €40-45. They look great and I'd buy them if they were my size. PM me if you want me to proxy for you!

Edited to add: Sorry, should have said that it's not my auction, just something I found.

most dry cleaners sell an assortment of plastic ones (8-10 pairs in many sizes/point angles) for $1-2 per pkg. I should get some metal ones.

Nordstrom has these 18 for $25. Does anyone have any experience with these (do they suck/bend like tinfoil?)
