First audible "holy shit" from me after unspoilering in awhile.  Well done.

More from yesterday's stop on my ride home.

Piattelli tie  NWT  (available)

700

Mabitex pants 30 X 29 (available)

700

I've been looking for a blue ancient madder tie and a pair of size 8/8.5 dark brown lace up shoes for a while now.

If anyone has an extra pair in their closet, or has the good fortune to come across a pair in the future; please keep me in mind.

Thanks.

Crew, Unbranded (although the SW&D forums says these are crappy).  They were all around $30/pair.  Not my size so I didn't pick.  Worth it?  Also, do 7s sell well on Ebay?  Saw several pair there for about $25.

 

Those were thrift prices on selvedge? Good if you like it and fits you. Damn, 7s are $25/pair? That's way too much. Pick up only if it's under $10 and fits you. I think if you were to sell them in bulk, you might get some ebay $ out of them.

Things are getting ugly here. Found out that a lot of the stores I frequent will not only be pulling items aside for their boutique store. It used to come from one single store. Not only that, but they will have more "picker shoppers" out there grabbing stuff too. Come on.....

Not only that, but one of the few really good stores is doing some serious hoarding. Just scraps are hitting the floor. Today I also witnessed a regular customer getting treated very rudely there by whom I believe is the new processing manager and an employee (cracking jokes about them publicly). Employees in general at this store are pretty rude. They don't acknowledge your presence, they push and shove and are just overall unpleasant. It seems that the better the customer you are, the worse you get treated. frown.gif

I did manage to scavenge one nice item from a store I've almost stopped going to.

Richard James Savile Row. 3 btn solid navy herringbone. Hacking pockets. Ticket Pocket. Side Vents. Trousers are slim and single pleated/cuffed. Richard James is a little more fashion oriented than most Row makers, but the stuff is still pricey and this suit is pretty nice and has a bit of handwork as well. Tagged 40 R. Available
Measurements (Click to show)

Chest (pit to pit): 21"
Shoulders (seam to seam): 19"
Sleeves (shoulder seam to cuff): 24" with 1 1/4" to let out
Length (TOC): 32 1/2"

Trousers:

Waist: 16" with 2 1/2" to let out
Inseam: 29 1/2" with 1" to let out
Cuffs: 1 3/4"
Leg Opening: 8 1/2"

Yea, that's what I'm going to do.

The other day I was in a Goodwill and was looking at the ties that were on a rack with no labels visible. After I'd pulled out one or two and then put them back approximately how I'd found them, an employee came over and started shouting about how they'd just spent half an hour organizing the ties and I was messing them up looking at them. I gave the guy a WTF look, put my earbuds back in, and went about my business. Considering the place generally looks like a tornado just hit I appreciate the fact he takes a bit of pride in his work or whatever but if a customer can't look at the merchandise how do you really expect anything will sell?

Bit of psychology for you: Sell the one you thrifted on eBay and look at it as profit made. At the end of the day you were always going to get your fair lady a nice gift, and nice gifts by and large cost money nod[1].gif

so who currently holds the epic find title? I wonder if the MINT Loro Piana 3/4 length cashmere lined deerskin coat i found for $20 and sold for $3k is still up on the list. i havent been on here much lately and i aint reading over a thousand pages to get caught up LOL
post #57115 of 117936
I have had an amazing streak of good luck lately, I cannot lie. I also have kids; work has been so busy I have a hard time reading 1/4 of the posts here once a week.

I'll share something good I found today (check out the buttons!!!!!!).

Can't find the pants to go with but I'm sure they will show up at this store (I've had 3wk hang time between coat pants matches before...) 40R. Zegna, Nataku, right? The FINE WORSTED label is all Zegna, all the time, about 1985-95 right? Do I need to poast the breast pocket tag for real confirmation? I've just only seen the FINE WORSTED thing on Zegna, and old Zegnas at that.








ADDED moar pix
