I don't know if I should take the bait... but the company is NOMOS and they make a fantastic wristwatch

In other thrift related news, I finally found my first RLPL piece that fits. It's a linen navy pinstripe suit in 42R peak lapel,  almost NWOT all the pockets still sewn shut and buttons in the bag. Here's the kicker... No. F'ing. Pants.

Now In have a gorgeous orphan RLPL summer orphan, I might have to say F internet knowledge and rock it.

As a PSA to all fellow MN thrifters, if you happen to stumble across the pants I will pay good money to reunite the pair!

I frequently see mid to high end orphan pants on Ebay. Small chance they'll match, but I've found PRL pieces of identical fabric so it is a possibility.

Anyone know when Paul Stuart ran this car motif? Found em in the bottom of the men's bargain bin.


Or when PRL ties were $32.50 at retail...

Found a very sweet pair of vintage 501's today.
I have no idea exactly how old they are. They have 643M stamped behind the top button and have little e on the red tag. They also have a faint redline left in the selvedge.
Size is 33 W, 32 L.
Leather patch is sweet and aged.
I could wear them, but if anyone is interested, shoot me a pm.

Did a bit of thrifting up in the Twin Cities, Nulook consignment store on 50th and Penn had a bunch of Isaia suits, some of which were going for $55.00 in a size 44 and some 46, Fashion Ave had some seriously nice shit, some Isaia MTM and brioni, all in the $250.00 range and also there is a Kiton shirt there for around $100.00. I passed on all of it, I did pick up some Isaia trews and a Branichi MTM cashmere sc.

643M should be LVC from around 2010 if I recall correctly.

Wear it in good health, brah!

 

Go nuts on making that eBay dough!

if you hate the feeling of cold steel but a leather or nato strap on it, natos can be had for like 10 bucks on ebay or check out theknottery.com for nice straps

 

yeah the shetland is soooo baller when I first saw the shetland I thought you had gifted me a j press shaggy dog sweater but then I opened it further and this is even better. honestly so freaking dope it will be perfect for when I go climb half dome in a couple weeks and the western shirt will be baller for when I visit my grandma in arizona and my cousin takes me to a rodeo icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

also as per the watch situation I am by no means as informed as mzhammer but I don't think I would ever buy from amazon or ebay I have heard stories of movements being switched for crappy japan movements and bracelets being sub par, if I were you I would troll a watch forum for a while like watchyouseek.com dudes are there are super nice I was really close to buying a cartier tank but realized as a 17 year old even if you have the dough for a nice watch you would be better to cop a casio off ebay and save the rest shog[1].gif as for omegas I have their current offerings they seem to have gone down hill over the years same with rolex (although their explorer is a beauty)

Not a lot of Swervedriver fans out there. It always makes me happy when I hear someone else knows them. They've always been my vote for the "most under-appreciated" band...at least when it comes to the 90s.

I am indeed in LA. Last year at this time I thought NY and SF had all the good stuff. I think I finally hit the right store(s) at the right time for once.

Among my many other hobbies, watches happen to be another one. I can wholeheartedly recommend Omegas. The Co-axial movements are excellent, and about the most resilient automatic movement for those that will everyday wear.

I love this watch. I've worn it everyday for 6 years straight, put it through a lot, and it still keeps great time without a service.

I was out hunting for winter shoes, and scored some summer ones instead. At a 90% discount!

 

Moreschi may not be a particularly great make, and these may not be the kings of loafers, but they fit me pretty sweet, the leather feels kind of awesome, and they sure were worth the HUF11900, which is, at today's quote, no more than $54 dollars. :D

Not really sure this is a good pick up but it was cheap. Should i pass on this in the future?

post #58527 of 102572
First, went thrifting. Grabbed a nice-looking blue checked Faconnable (my size, not available) and a light pink/white gingham Faconnable (size M, available). Sadly left a plain blue OCBD Zegna, again in my size. Almost checked out with it before noticing a really weird but significant tear in one cuff.

Also a few ties. First time I got a real indication the staff at one of these places knew/liked me, the lady was nice enough to go in the back and get some ties they hadn't put out yet (found the H&K in there). Not so sure on the Zegna, but I really really like the PRL.

Ties: PRL, Zegna, Hildritch & Key

Lastly, e-thrifting! Beautiful jacket I bought as a gift to myself at my dad's goading (also some Canali pants from the same guy, not really thrift prices). Jacket tagged Holland & Sherry, but also has some "Made in USA" tag details. Does H&S make anything in the US? If not, probably just H&S fabric, quite nice for the price either way.

Found a Polo Ralph Lauren 2B SC:





Close as I could get with my lighting and crappy camera:



Also found a new-condition Peter Elliot casual shirt. It's just cotton, but it feels like light denim:



Does anyone know who makes the shirts for Peter Elliot? It seems of good quality; on par with Brooks Brothers, anyway.

Passed on a Southwick SC, two HF SCs, and a J. Press suit. Not my size. frown.gif
