post #55156 of 125173

I have been with the family for Thanksgiving and haven't had an opportunity to post my finds so this will be a short post. Some seriously great finds have come up recently and I have enjoyed seeing what everyone has grabbed. Found two ties and need have some questions with the first one.

 

 

Is this the Chanel I'm looking for? Real or fake? Good find, mediocre find, bad find? Any help would be appreciated.

 

 

700

 

Also found my first Etro.

I'll try to post my other finds later when I have more time. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

Pretty sure the Chanel is fake. The Etro looks nice though.

To bad she couldn't have kept it a surprise though. She couldn't remember if that was a show I wanted to go to.

Dude, I thought you were a short. I'm fairly certain that any regulars will have a length of >30.

You're wardrobe must be huge by now Barrel. I think there is a Dibs from you on every page lol8[1].gif

The TF's someone picked up for me at the Woodbury outlet. Will be in my hands on Friday (keeping) icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I texted her last night and said thanks, and asked for a pic. She replied and said "they're out in my car, will send you one tomorrow when I go home." I thanked her again, and started thinking about the comical ways in which I could send a follow up text 5 minutes later...

"...do you really think it's a good idea to leave those in your car overnight?"

"Hey did you turn off your dome light? I'm just asking because your sister leaves hers on sometimes and that can kill your battery. If you end up checking, snap a pic of those ties real quick, thx."

If anyone wants a proxy, my gf is going up there in a couple of days. I can't exactly ask her to pick up a ton of them, but if a couple of you want a tie, please let me know (they're $99 and the 2 I posted are unavailable).

A few finds from the weekend.

 

Ascot Chang shirt apparently made for someone exactly my size. First time I've seen one of these.

 

700

 

A rather well worn (and not particularly attractive) pair of 8.5D Santonis. Looks like Bartons. Going to see how well I can clean them up and then it's off to eBay.

700

 

AE Woodstock in good shape and my size, too.

700

 

Saw these and could just make out "Polo" and the remains of the logo. Did some checking and it looks like they're Stantons. Need some cleaning but they're a good fit -- just waked about a mile to the office in them!

700

 

I still have bad memories of the days when Gucci was massively hyped but I like this tie.

700

 

First AE belt I've ever seen.

700

I really like that belt!  Too bad it's not a 38 or I'd try to get it from you :P

If it were a 38 you wouldn't be able to. smile.gif

A lunchtime visit to the thrift down the block turned up three nice shirts. The Tyrwhitts are marked 17.5 x 36; the Lorenzini is unmarked but looks the same (at least in the sleeves). Too big for me but I can proxy:

Send me a PM and I'll be happy to pick 'em up ($6 each, I think, plus shipping).

Yeah. Stuff like that makes me cry but I've never seen anyone successfully match anything with an orphaned pinstripe jacket. On the other hand, you might see if anyone's offered something like that on eBay and actually sold it. Probably plenty of offers but the key is actual sales. No idea.

 

Quick thought: scan the pants at the same GW for a match. I managed to reunite a Canali suit and a BB 1818 suit that way. Doesn't happen often but it happens.

post #55168 of 125173

Was able to reunite an old style Burberry's suit, normally might not even bother, but its cool pattern and only cost $15

 

Unfortunately there were 4 BBGF orphans, a "TRADVESTY"
