Same in DC. However, I think the SoCal thrift prices may be double from ours
Wearing these Bally shortwings today that Eazy hooked me up on. Got them Monday, wearing them for the 1st time. Fit great:
Dude, you're buying this stuff at thrift prices. Take a chance on the unknown, just like we all have done. I was standing there in line scrupulously inspecting some Gucci croc loafers for imperfections rather than throwing $10 at the clerk. Live and learn, then get that money.
I was surprised, too, about the Truzzi. That was a couple months ago, not long after I discovered SF and this thread, when I found the AE lizard skin loafers I think. When I went back to see if I found matching pants for the Truzzi, it was gone. Thing was gorgeous in S110s, and kind of fit... [meepish] Oh, and there was another pinstripe orphan in the same size that I found at the same time, and when I went hunting for the Truzzi pants later I found matching pants for the other pinstripe -- I seriously hope I didn't miss out on what is for me a grail find at $17.
Good to know about the Cucinelli, will go back for it ASAP. Thanks!
Perhaps later I'll go to Neiman Marcus and get me some GM-H "thrift" pics, but in the meantime, my lowly finds:
AE Maxfield, 10 EEE with rubber half-soles. Available
US Made LL Bean duck boots, 9 ladies M. Possibly available.
NWT PRL button down. Not available right now.
Also picked up a staple Zegna white shirt and a striped Lacoste dress shirt, but both are getting the treatment right now.
Okay, slightly devastated and also wanting to learn.
Found my first Oxxford piece, a pair of b/w houndstooth suit trousers. Thing is, they're orphaned.
What does one do?! Leave them? Buy them for the $3 they're asking and keep them to study and savor?
I got the opportunity to feel, see, and examine some first class suiting so that is definitely encouraging.
While they are good for almost absolutely nothing... here is a pretty good discount I thought I would pass along.
Jos. A. Bank (yes that shitty name has just popped into the thread) is doing a 70% off regular priced items sale. Why post a deal for 70% off of junk you ask?
Because they have shoe trees, collar stays, cedar shoe rack, tie racks, tie bars, etc. Shoe trees come out to $7.50 each. Not bad considering if I even find a pair at a thrift they want at least 5 bucks and always seem to not be the right size for my big feet. Figured it might be useful for some of the basic accessories.
Edit: They do carry Allen Edmonds, but the discount code only works for 25% off of shoes.
70% off code: SEVENTY
Free Shipping Code: FREESHIP
I'm always so jelly about how well you pull off this look, nohomo.
