Speaking of which, big ups to GMMcL for a smooth trade! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hey guys this is my first post here after lurking for a couple weeks so go easy on me. Just thought I'd share some of my recent finds to get some feedback from you guys. I work in a professional business atmosphere and want to dress nice but not break the bank doing so. Here's what I've found so far. I'm open to trade or sell the ties and the last pair of shoes posted, the rest I'm keeping for personal use.

 

Dacks brown leather shoes:                                                     

 

 

Dack's black leather cap toe shoes:

 

 

BB "346" tie                                                       

 

 

Polo RL Tie:

 

Vintage?? Gianni Versace Tie. Worth keeping? Is this thing worth anything or should I avoid it in the future?

 

 

E Zegna shirt: (I love the MOP buttons)                              

 

Etro dress pants:

 

 

This was an interesting find, does anyone have any information on the brand? Worth keeping? The leather is extremely soft and I can post better pictures if it helps.

 

Thanks!

agreed. I like those Etro trousers. I'm not too hip on the Polo and Versace ties but it's a good haul regardless.

This is kind of the opposite of the threads title but still slightly amusing:
I looked up Goodwill on google and came up with a location not too far from my house. I woke up early today and drove about 20min to get there to find out it's a Goodwill office. facepalm.gif

Right back at ya dude. And to too many other dudes on here to name over the past week. Y'all know who you are, and you're awesome.

On two separate notes:
1. Is shell a miracle material? Dude, all you need is to brush it with horsehair and every imperfection magically fades away.
2. On the hunt for a 42R tux, preferably peak lapel dual vent. For a close friend. Will X post into trade thread.

I forgot to ask about this yesterday. I took some pictures of it because it looked a bit complicated, which is my main criteria for thinking it might be something. It is a National Panasonic SG-2080L. Anyway, it's €50, so what do you electronic guys think? It was in really nice condition.

Anybody mind if I noob it up? I've always been an occasional thrifter but moved to LA not long ago, started reading this thread a few weeks ago, and have been inspired to go out the last few weeks whenever I can squeeze it in. I've learned a ton from you all - I hope I have, anyway. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with some of what I've picked up.

Keeping: Shirts from Polo Ralph Lauren in a nice flannel, Lorenzini, Borrelli
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

My favorite thing I've ever thrifted, maybe favorite thing I've ever bought. Swaine Adeney Brigg hacking jacket. (I think it's a hacking jacket, don't beat up the noob if I'm wrong.) Not available.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




My second-favorite pickup: Isaia cotton sportcoat. Probably the ideal LA SC. So very not available. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Also some no-name but nice-feeling made-in-Italy ties that fill holes in my closet: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


And then a bunch of stuff I wish I could keep but that just doesn't fit right. All available:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This would be my favorite thing ever if it wasn't a little big in the shoulders (I'm a 42 R/L): Cantarelli windowpane SC Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Some shirts: J Press, Oriali, Lorenzini Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Tom James Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I also picked up a couple of real headscratchers. They seemed like good ideas at the time. (These are available, to say the least.)

^^^ Wow! That thing is killer! If it works, it's definitely worth the price. That thing retailed for an arm and a leg back in the late 70's. How do I know? My grandparents own a National-Panasonic store in Tokyo which is now run by my uncles as my grandfather has long since retired. I recall him having a very similar model years ago set up in the store as a display and I wanted the thing so bad. He told me how much it cost and that I'd have to save up for it. I still remember to this day it was roughly $500-$600 USD back then. The stuff is very well made.

Nat, you know your stuff! It even came with some (unknown to me) speakers. If it was pricey back in the '70s, possibly the speakers were also of some quality. However, the tag said that the belt makes noise but that the system works. I know nothing of repairs for these types of things, so I'm not sure whether I should get myself involved.

My tailor stuck two pins through the front of this Hermes tie tonight while pinning the lining...on purpose. He claims there is nothing to worry about, the holes will steam out with no pulls. I am doubtful.
The guy has done 50+ jobs for me, never a problem. Won't make a big deal over it with him, but ffffuuuu.gif

 

Sounds like he needs a kick in the ass. WTF, man! ffffuuuu.gif
