You were awesome in Fear and Loathing man. 

 

Jk, I actually think it's a really cool look.  Like the shirt more than I thought I could like a Hawaiian shirt.

 Hah! Thanks, man... Reyn Spooner and Tori Richard make some awesome Aloha Shirts. I don't wear them every day, just on Fridays... It kind of balances out the dress pants, nice shoes and nice shirts the rest of the week. cool.gif

Thanks for the comments everyone - they're greatly appreciated. I'm trying to step things up a bit in my day-to-day wardrobe.

I use my wife's Panasonic DMC-GF1. She's the photog in the family. As long as I can point, shoot and download, I'm cool.

Maybe I am missing something. Is it a strategy for professional thrifter to look like they have no fashion or style sense at all? specially the ones hunting for luxury high ends goods.

Ahh, forgot that there was a burgundy tie in that! Looks great and I'm glad you got some use out of it. I don't remember if there was a navy knit, but if you want one I just left it at a shop the other day. Let me know and I can pick it up for you!

Lol. Figures. Another bridge coat, about half the weight as the one you got.

I thrifted literally the exact tie as that Ferragamo, but in red. Intended to sell, but ended up just sending it to someone as a free gift.

Those look a lot better than when they left here! Amazing how good shoes clean up!

0 stores hit today, and unlikely any will get hit before the new year.

Le sigh.

I gotta shout out to Hans, again, for organizing and managing the Secret Santa. I'm sure it was and remains no small amount of work, but we've all reaped the rewards and fun directly and indirectly.

Hahaha, so long as mine fits, I will never get rid of it. I received a compliment on it yesterday. The manager of a company came out and said "That coat fits great! Where could I get one like that?" I said "1950" and he laughed. Can't thank you enough for it! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Great find....I found a new pair once. I think they got passed over because they were nice and crispy. I felt like a thief when I paid for them...one of the best thrifting days of my life. Awesome jeans, I love them. I'd have no problem paying full retail for a new pair when the time comes for replacement.

One thing that gets said in this thread often, but gets looked over by many newcomers is the recognition of quality. I'm not a denim head, knowing just a few labels; but recognizing quality allowed me to not hesitate at picking up a few other quality pieces from the same donor; which turned out to be gems as well; Maiden Noir and Raleigh Denim.

I get down looking through this thread as in my area the loads of Brioni, Kiton, and Isaia most likely will never happen for me (based on our regional supply), but every once in a while, the thrift god's send a little encouragement my way.
