I`ve been checking out the VV on bloor and the little vintage store near it. It`s the biggest VV I`ve been to but people tell me the Queen East location is better.
I picked up mostly pants at the bloor location, but I got:
two NWT Farah vintage pants, one in red and one in beige, $7 each (saw TNT in yorkville was selling them for $150!)
a bunch of NWT wesc pants in navy, black and a weird listerine green, $25 each, but I didn`t check the fit and they`re very slim
a billionaire boys tshirt (not sure if it`s real)
My fried friend got a few Ferragamo flats for less than $10 each at the Q.East location
Apparently winners can have some good finds as well, I`ve heard people finding Thom Browne and RLPL there. The only thing I`ve found there is GANT
I have better luck going to 50% off sales though, for boxing week I picked up:
at holts last call, APC new cures for $45, friend got some Michael Kors purse for $70 (apparently a steal). Saw some size 4-5 Thom Browne, apparently they will no longer carry it.
at urban I got brown sperry boat shoes for $30, toms for $10, APC madaras sweater, jacket and jeans for $35,50,25 and all of the Crate (made in LA) stuff was 50% off
at h&m, picked up the camel suit set today for more than 70% off!
but my goal is to find some Giani Versace items because I just love the prints

 

Sounds like you're on the right track then, minus the listerine-coloured pants for $25.

 

Just, we don't usually share locations of thrift shops publicly, as it's considered bad form by many to blow out other people's sweet spots.

 

By the way, I haven't been to the HLC since before Christmas, but if that Thom Browne is on sale, I'd buy it for a flip.

 

Oh, and a PSA to all you GTAers: The Harry Rosen outlet in Mississauga has some sweet steals right now, including a whole whack of Etro shirts for $20 each. In fact, here's a few (and one Gant x Basian):

 

700

 

Also grabbed a house brand made in Italy merino sweater for $35:

 

700

 

Only two thrift finds today, but they're pretty cool.

 

Eddie Bauer made in USA moleskins with leather trim on the pockets and a flap pocket (for ammo?). Available for cost + shipping to anyone who's a 40W, 30L as they were too awesome to pass.

700

 

And probably my second-ever non-clothing find. Maus I and II, unopened, still got the $40 price tag on it.

I have one from this same era. like 2" wide. Cool as crap, but very stained.

Passed on a Stuart's Choice shirt. Would that have been made by someone decent?

Some of my best scores were this time last year. Unfortunately, I'm out of commission until well into the new year. uhoh.gif

Are those the Clawmark ones?

 

Props for finding some Thom Browne. I have yet to get that cherry popped. But yeah, sleeveless Oxford is outrageous.

 

Just checked, and yes they are. And that Thom Browne shirt is quite possibly the most awesome thing I could never picture a straight man wearing.

I picked up two kiton ties from there yesterday.  One is untagged, but one of the very recent super thin cashmere ties.  Absurd.

 

I saw the WESC stuff, was debating picking it all up when it goes on sale.  Think I'm deciding against it.

Well the Thrifting Gods have not been the nicest to me on my last few trips -

 

Again today, only 1 find... and it's too big!

 

Holt Renfrew Dark Navy Overcoat in 44L - 50% Wool 50% Cashmere. (Available)

 

It has tags that are Made in England - does anyone know anything more about who makes the coats for them?

 

Here it is:

 

 

700

It looks fantastic and is in great shape - I WISH it was a 40L, even a 42L i could struggle to pull of if it was thinner, but this doesn't work.

 

It is available for Trade if someone has something to offer - if not, it will go to my Dad as a gift.

 

 

 

Thanks for any info on this people!  Happy Thrifting!

Sheesh. This post took me back -- and took quite some time to go through, even skipping (hundreds of) pages here and there. My thrifting for fun and profit goes from finding a pair of Air Jordan 1s at a Delaware Goodwill around '90 (they were two sizes too big and I wore them anyway) to an orange Schott Perfecto I picked up at a Long Island Goodwill a year or so back (my size and $19.99, but, um, yeah, orange motorcycle jackets) that was an easy flip. And my tie rack is probably equal parts thrift and Marshalls. Least now I know there's a place to share.

 

Dior Homme at a thrift store and Tellasons for less than $15 -- man. And all the Aldens! Not likely I'm gonna find those things here in NYC, but I still hold out hope on Long Island trips.

 

Cheers, thank you, and happy New Years to all.

Normally, I visit the thrifts on the way to school in the morning.  But, I'm not in school and I'm still dropping by daily.  During the school year, I usually walk out empty handed or with one or two things.  This past week, daily visits, I've been spending on average $120 per day.  It's incredible.  Drowning in gently worn brooks brothers suits, Harris Tweeds and most recently a ton of Aldens (9-10 in E- EE).  I've had to pass on french copper cookware and Denon amps because I can't carry them home (no car) I'm stocking up on inventory for the 'bay.

 

Since nearly everyone here has flipped an item at some time and more than a couple supplement their scholarships/education (like me, we all can't be Spoo) doing so, the big money question is will the fiscal cliff drive down sales on ebay as people save or will more people buy as they still seek luxury items but at a lower cost.  For the economists in the room, how elastic (or inelastic) is the demand for second hand luxury goods?  Might we make more money if we wait the cliff out?

FUCKIN SICK! I hate you!

Clawmarks are the highest selling Dior Homme jeans. You keeping them or selling them? Just curious.

Big thanks to Natakufor setting me up with some great Boss Baldessarini trousers. Nice summer weight, light grey material. Single, reverse pleats - my favourite!
post #58725 of 109548

Hey guys, I found this blazer recently and it seems pretty well made, but I don't know anything about the maker and I can't seem to find any info online. Does anyone know anything about this?

Also, I already have a navy blazer similar to this, so this one is up for sale if anyone is interested and can give me a price.
