I would say your excellent stuff is considered grail status to most lol. I've found Kiton, Hermes, Greens and Row, but never Dior, Lanvin.

LOL, there has to be a grail section that splits the atom so to speak.

Here is a new section, title, super Grail or aptly named Spoo section.

Super Grail - Chanel menswear with some insane amount of attention to detail, Hermes leathers minks or outrageous baller suits with 14-18kt gold buttons and zippers, Kiton K 50 suits with all the trims or 100% vicuna, Zilli crazy ass jackets lined with Hermes cashmere / silk scarves, ............

Just thrifted myself a cracked radiator on the way home from my uncles funeral. Now I'm stranded in Baltimore 1.25 hours from home.

On the bright side. I thrifted 2 oxxford suits, a Burberry London sc and a j press sc just before this happened.

Chanel menswear is the worst possible designed things anywhere. But, its rarer than a unicorns nutsack.

I totally misread that as "goddamn baptism"! LOL

Realistically:
Grail - Kiton, Hermes, Attolini, .Rubinacci, Tom Ford, Stefano Ricci, Lobbs, Edward Green, Saville Row bespoke stuff of recent vintage .......
Excellent - High end fashion brands of recent vintage (Dior, Bottega Venetia, Lanvin being 3 standouts). Zegna Couture, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, Borrelli, Brunello Cucinelli and a few others....
Good - Most familiar fashion brands, Brioni, Zegna Mainline, Ralph Lauren Black Label, Luciano Barbera, Isaia etc.....
Average - Oxxford (recent only), RRL, Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece, Ralph Lauren Polo made in Italy, Canali, Skeet Blankets etc...............
Barely Pickable - Brooks Brothers 1818, Paul Stuart, Hickey Freeman, Hugo Boss (suits or jackets) etc..............
If a fellow picks for himself, then everything is fair game since it is a personal thing. For flipping or trades, I would only pick Good to Grail.

 

Wait, what? Brioni, LB, and Isaia is only good and Dior, Lanvin, RLPL, are more quality than the former? I'm thinking you were referring suits, SCs for flipping?

Found a NWT Zegna jacket (navy wool, patch pocket, duo fabric) in 48/38 for $5.




Inside the pocket was a Rolex GMT wut?

W. U. T. ??

(Yes, I know double post, but worthy.)

R U SRS, or trolling the previous "ethics of stuff found in thrifted finds) discussion?

Went through the sellers other listings....what a fuckload of crap. Looking at those listings made me imagine what thrifting in hell must be like. endrant

And yes I'm jealous.

Zilli is going downhill.  It may not be as valuable as some other super grail items, but I'd really like to find some Caraceni or Campagnia bespoke items.  Some of my favorite thrifted pieces have been Leonard Logsdail bespoke, NY bespoke which I am thoroughly convinced is far ahead of Savile row.

LOL, I find Brioni suits quite often. I have picked around 4 suits the last 3 months, and the 6 months before that I picked 3 suits and left around 5. Brioni is not such a rare find in context. I am sure Brioni has good eBay value, but take a 2003 Brioni suit and place up against a Dior Homme suit from the same period, the smart money says Dior wins hands down in amount of PM's I would get if I listed them. Quality wise, Brioni way better than Dior, but Dior is pretty rare. I have only found 2 Dior suits in last 2 years of thrifting and both were pretty trashed and I could not take em.

Aye, Chanel are vulgar in context of menswear. The thing that jumped to mind was a suit in a consignment in LA that was embroidered with what seemed to be crystal buttons. That suit was ugly as shit but the amount of handwork and detailing was scary. Price wise the consignment wanted a pretty penny - I could have bought 3 Kiton suits from that store for the price of that one Chanel piece.

Harumphhh, numerous Paul Stuart suits I picked up before and not a dang soul wanted (admittingly I picked suits that were probably 1980's). Quality wise Paul Stuart is pretty damn good and I certainly enjoy the label. Problem with Paul Stuart is that 99% of suits donated are too dated stylistically. Getting the good Samuelsohn or Isaia made suits of recent vintage is about as rare as finding a half decent Kiton suit. This is just my west coast experience though, east coast may be different how many of the nice suits turn up.
