post #58591 of 114446
Still on holiday break so I took some time this morning after a doctor's appointment to hit a thrift after no luck yesterday. I stumbled upon the most interesting/weird/creepy person I've ever seen before. He looked like a retarded version of this guy from Raising Arizona. Black sweats, black Nike long sleeve running shirt (though clearly this guy doesn't exercise), black shin pads, black sneakers, silver Elvis glasses, a white Elvis figurine he somehow turned into a belt buckle, and a HEAD of a baby alligator he was wearing from a silver necklace. I couldn't stop staring.

No big pick ups, but I like what I got:
2 x very recent Peter Blair ties

Hermes monkey and alligator

Not withstanding my cheeky comment from earlier, I still contend that almost any thrift store anywhere will yield fine results with the application of knowledge and patience. I know deadboy is in the GTA and he's said here that 80% of his finds come from his local Value Village. True, mega hauls are something you'll see from LA and only a few other places but decent pieces to flip, to wear and to trade are out there, you just need to look and know what you're looking at.

 The real Brioni, from a regular GW,  was pretty shocked when I opened the jacket and saw the Brioni label, going to the bay with this one.

 

It's for the larger gentleman, EU 60L US 50L, in excellent shape, two button, unvented Navy, pants pleated, cuffed 44 (fully let out) X 30

Also, same GW, first ever seersucker, Brooks Brothers, like new, slim 40R 34x28 (w/5" extra) flat front,

 

It fits me, but I don't know if I would wear a seersucker. Interest?

Color is deep blue:

Anyone like Carhartt? There was a bunch of NWT Carhartt at the one place I hit today. There was a jacket, overalls, popover, and rubberized raincoat (all pictured). There was also a chambray shirt (size 15) and 2 pairs of work pants (green and tan, both 34 waist) all NWT but no pics. They're all at the high-end of thrift prices and I'll proxy if someone wants.

Also, does this tag ring any bells?

I hit Marshall's while I was out and this was on a Made in Italy Rugby RL SC. Gray herringbone I think with very modern styling (thin lapels, high gorge). $150 + tax if anyone wants a proxy.

 

I almost pulled the trigger on a RLPL shirt there for $100. Also saw Brioni and Zegna shirts there for $129 apiece but the RLPL was nicer IMO.

^^^ Tag looks like Caruso from what I can tell, may want someone else to double verify however.

Nice find on the Brioni and this BB suit would be gold on eBay in say May, if you can wait.

That's what I was thinking too, but I'm not so good at tag ID except for HF. It's just weird that it was on a Rugby RL SC.

Figured I would have to wait till summer to sell it. There were ones sold from $35-$85 in the last couple months. Don't know how to search for similar  sold in summer.

Fights have little to do with muscles. The most dangerous sensei I ever sparred was a 135 lb woman.

Are there any Canadian thrifters here? If so, could you direct me to places? Or any online consignment places? I've mostly check out Value Village, but all I can find are Mickey Mouse tshirts tongue.gif

Dude, I'm so game! But I think we are already going to LA/San Diego sometimes next month. When were you thinking of going?
