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.
Yes, I'm from Toronto. The hub of the universe. If you want a thrift store that'll churn out RLPL, Brioni, Kiton, etc., I'll give you the address right now: Los Angeles.
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.
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.
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.
Love me some Christmas returns

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.
