post #57391 of 114675

Worked late every day this week on a huge project, only had a few minutes each day to thrift.  How'd I do?

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A few things for me - Aquascutum argyle sweater tagged medium, fits like a large.  A couple of Brooks 346 merino polos.

 

  

 

 

Not thrifted, but just came in the mail today - my Florsheim shells are going to get the TLC they deserve:

 

 

A Goodwill close to my work has been turning up Italian sportcoats of late.  Quite a surprise, given that its in the middle of nowhere.  Zanella, Canali, and Luigi Bianci  Mantova.  All picked up today in a 10 minute stop on my birthday.  Thanks thrift gods.

 

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

 

And the best piece of all....

 

 

Awesomeness! (Click to show)

 

Thrifted for the white elephant gift exchange.  Great gag for 99 cents.

I had to run 20 miles south today and stopped by one of my first ever thrift locations for the first time in weeks. As I continue to search for raw denim, I keep finding more and more unusual Levis.

Are these the Levis for which I am looking? (Not Big E, though)








Also founds some sick nice chinos.


Nothing available today since everything fits although last night, I looked at a like new J. Crew dark olive, small wale corduroy sport coat, single vent with surgeon cuffs. Size XL. I can swing by in the morning if anyone is interested.

But I think the XX means they are STF. If they are made in USA and have a button fly they are a nicer pair of department store jeans. Not the worst. 

post #57401 of 114675

The XX on the tag is just a throwback, it means nothing unless it's next to the number name such as 501XX

 

Those aren't selvedge, so not made in USA. Most likely Mexico. Not worth a lot, sorry Dig. Nice if they fit you well.

Yes, if in good condition.

Nice find! I would totally rock that! I would just send it to a tailor to get them hemmed. It shouldn't cost that much either, at most, $15.
