Awesome.

Dudes, have a shitload of stuff that has been coming up lately that I'll need to post. Talking multiple Isaias, sweet Zegnas, etc. But I picked up this piece today and had to get some pics up. Neil Barrett made in Italy coat that I haven't quite figured out yet. Has some weird shit going on like I've never seen before.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Weird straps on the liner.


On the left side is a whistle and the black tube is some type of pump thing that you used to blow shit up. Haven't found this coat anywhere online yet so will have to do some serious sleuthing.


I don't think Neil Barrett has shown up in this thread as far as I can recall. For those that don't know Barrett started out with Gucci then moved to Prada for a while in the 90's or so.

Depends, The older stuff is worth getting if it is for yourself--EB once made some of the finest outdoor gear on the planet, and that coat fishy found is completely sick. However, it tends to get no love on the secondary market because of what the brand has become. If you can kop for a good price and it is a staple, say a vintage down vest or a parka, then go ahead, but you will not likely realize a huge return. If it is something weird along the lines of down with a wool-blanket liner, it would probably be a tough flip, even though the quality is high. Along the same lines, I recently sold two down parkas, one by LL Bean of relatively recent vintage and made in Thailand--it said down, but you could feel feathers. The other was a vintage REI that was by far the superior coat. The Bean went for slightly less than $100. The REI, which had no country of origin tag, went for $60, and there is no way I would have sold it if it had fit--I would've sold my brown-label NF first. Some guy in Russia ended up with it, and I'm guessing he's laughing his ass all the way to the Kremlin.

LOL @ Cucinelli at TJ Maxx.  I haven't even found anything that nice at a Marshall's, let alone the Beverly Hills Polo Club dump that is TJ's.  Their "Compare at" pricing is ridiculously low.

God it has been way too long since I posted. I haven't had much time to thrift lately which really is bothering me...I used to work from home and now I don't. The silver lining is that my new job is a huge upgrade from my last job, so I really shouldn't be complaining, but man it is hard to cut back 90% on the addiction!!! 

 

Anyway, what little time I have had to thrift yielded probably my favorite find to date: LL Bean Goatskin Leather, Shearling lined Bomber that fits me like a glove!!

Thanks, dudes. I vaguely knew that Rooster was a vtg brand and have seen some quality stuff by them over the years; none of it my style. This one is really nice. Pattern would be great for a square, or maybe I'll wear it under a sweater. Doubtful, though, so if you're a trad/ivy paisley kind of guy, get at me. I've got this one, an Aquascutum and a Rivetz of Boston -- all really nice paisleys that will just sit in my drawer gathering dust.

Dude, you're freaking killing it! I can't get into Maxx and Marshall's, other than the shoe outlets. Too much stuff to wade through. At thrifts, the good stuff shines based on condition and quality. At TJs, the crap is all NWT, and has been all pretty-fied. Hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. Plus, it's orders of magnitude more volume. Every time I go in, I lose interest.

This was my first time ever in a TJ Maxx - and this was pretty much the only thing that was worth picking up - a few RLBL pieces at $350+ and some Zegna maybe? The Cucinelli was sandwiched between two Joseph Abboud jackets at $250:slayer:

It has been delivered.........

Not one TJ Maxx I've ever been in has had suits or sportcoats. Not so much as a Lauren green label. Where do they carry these things?
