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):
Also grabbed a house brand made in Italy merino sweater for $35:
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.
And probably my second-ever non-clothing find. Maus I and II, unopened, still got the $40 price tag on it.
