All of these finds were from Ohio.  Some Cinci area some Mansfield.

 

Most of this will probably end up being available. Let me know if you feel strongly about any of them.

 

First up are some ties. When I got home I realized that the cashier messed up while we were talking and I ended up paying about $0.15 each for these.

 

Thomas Pink - Keeping these

Gucci - stain on the neck, not visible when I tie it but it might be on a taller person.

Chanel - Stain in the same spot as the Gucci. Silk looks a lot like a Drake's tie I found a few months ago. Super think.

Is this old? Tiny hole on the elbow. Keeping.

First T&A find. Sea island feels super nice. 15.5/39

Not big E but thought it might be old based on the size being 38. Fits really small. I'm guessing 80's or 90's.

Next this Patagonia Synchilla for me


A Kenzo Shirt. I know this brand retails for a lot. Not sure about if it will do well on ebay.

A viyella flannel for me

And this Brook Bros Cord Jacket for myself. Need some help dating this one. I was under the impression that the Union label without the red dot meant 50's, however I also thought brooks brothers didn't start using the yellow on blue label until the 70's. Any ideas?

If no damages or doesn't look like shit, Fusion is always a pick up!

Ive heard of alot of people doing that. Ive done it a couple of times but they weren't as good as I thought because ive gone back like the following day and half of the shit would be gone and the other half ended up back where it belonged.

Too lazy to show some dat Dries Van Noten shirt. And Dolce & Gabbana

 

I was going to say, "I think you won" until I realized you took pics of a couple dated suits instead of the Dries. I still think you won, but it's not a good victory.

Of the pieces that comprise my monstrously bloated wardrobe, I can now say that--despite spending hundreds of hours in Toronto thrifts--ZERO items were purchased at a thrift store.

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.

 

In regards to 'mint'... umm, so you're looking for thrift stores in Canada? Are you aware of how big Canada is? My best advice would be to look up Goodwill locations in the Greater Saskatoon Area and stay the eff away from Toronto.

 

But yeah, there's a ton of us in and around Toronto (perhaps enough that we should all have a meet-up sometime, hmm?). I did my own research to find my sweet spots, so I see no reason why others can't as well. As for online, the best value you can get is on eBay, provided you're patient and know how to bid strategically, and when to pull the trigger. And if you're in Toronto and have some money, check out Off The Cuff at Yonge and Eglinton. The prices can be a bit steep, but the clothes are good and the guy who runs it is awesome, and he'll help you find stuff that will work for you.

Ha! I was going to say Grendel why you getting rid of that tie? They are awesome, I recently saw that exact model at the Holt Renfrew outlet and seriously considered buying one.
