Fishy hasn't slept in two days. No sense of humor xD.

 

In all seriousness, I appreciate the advice as usual guys. Always getting better :)

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

Wes & DM, I'm sorry for your losses this week. It's always difficult going through the loss of a pet and most people experience the same emotions as if they were losing a human. Wes, I'm sorry for your added car trouble this week, it's definitely been a hard week!

As far as the "grail" list goes, I would put any number of vintage haberdasher's names on that list, but then again, I'm more partial to the old stuff. biggrin.gif

I would have loved to have seen that! If you're willing to spend $200 on it, let it sit there a couple more weeks and go in before Christmas and offer the cash but actually placing it on the counter. Number one, people are in a pretty good mood right before Christmas, 2) they probably want to move it and 3) it's harder to say no when you actually see the cash.

Seriously, this is the coolest/most bizarre thrift find I've ever had... does anyone know anything about it?






(Buttons are a replica of a 1760s Austro-Hungarian coin, as far as I can tell)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)










The only lead I have is the tag on the pants, by Grӧsse, which appears to be an old German company. There's a stain on the inside lining of the pants, so it might not be worth selling this one... anybody have any guesses what this is/what it's worth?


What you found is an Austrian/Bavarian traditional suit. Grösse is actually "size" and unlikely to be the brand name (though it could be, in theory). They are often still made by hand in small shops in Austria and Germany and brand new can be quite expensive. They're worn here for all special events and can be worn in some more formal events, such as some weddings. You even see men wear the coat with normal attire to work. Neat to see it in the US!

You know, I've been wanting a dog since high school...But I've always struggled with the notion that the pup will most likely pass on before I, due to the their relative short life expectancy of around 11 to 15 years...I plan on living until 120! But at this point, I think I'm ready to be responsible for another living being! Greyhound, here I come!

 

Wow, that's is so cool! (regarding the Austrian/Bavarian trad suit). Schooled! teacha.gif

I love it when consignors send me stuff with the tags still on. Thought you guys might like these :

Stop whining dude! Go get the jacket. You do not pass a Kiton nor a Bijan. At least you recognized it.

My condolences to DM and Wes BTW.

Nah...just a bunch of tweed since I figured you never found any.
Glad the package was able to brighten your day.

Cheers,

Way to blow it, man. lol8[1].gif

Also, I sent my Secret Santa package yesterday! I think my guy is going to be thrilled.

@Fishy, I sold a Bijan tux shirt last year on the bay for around $120, best 90 cents I've ever spent. @Hansderhund, they have half off day in the middle of the month and since it was already $50 off the original price, I'm hoping it will be further reduced by then. I don't have a smart phone but I'll try and snap a pic next time I'm there, it really was a fantastic piece. nod[1].gif
