Well while Rando was burninating the countryside, I was down in OC, not burninating... Found a really cool casual thing in 40L that will have to wait till tomorrow for pics, and then this...

Stellar in so many ways. I've been looking for a good scarf for myself. $4 later my hunt is over. Just happened to be in the right place at the right time, a lady brought out a rack full of mostly scarves and no one else was around. Took my time looking at them all and found this one. Almost thought there weren't any tags on it, and that was going to be fine by me. Then I found the above and went all bounce2.gif.

 

Some street art I came across last night...

It usually means pay me what I paid including tax and the cost of shipping. I usually add a few bucks for gas.

Does anyone have any info on Dormeuil?  This is so ridiculously soft, but I have no idea what the fabric is.  It actually feels softer than the Oxxford and Isaia cashmere sport coats I thrifted over the summer (humblebrag).

Also some ties... Firsts for me. Drakes kiton etc. Will post pics when I get home.
First anyone know what this is? 7 fold and heavy.

 

From my understanding, Wesc makes lower grade of selvedge denim. You can buy a pair about $80, think Unbranded.

 

I think they are still in business.

Me and the girlfriend went out thrifting a bit during the weekend, and as usual, the finds in the Swedish thrift market are nowhere near what some of you guys pick up. However, I did find this (and remembered reading about the brand here in the thread a little while back). Since it fit the girlfriend perfectly and she really liked the color, I picked it up for her, even though it was priced pretty high at $35. Not pristine condition, but it's got an awesome patina to it.

I've been looking for a watch for about two weeks or so. Yesterday, soon to be father in law gave me his Sector quartz from the 90's. Not very high end but that was a very awesome gesture and it was free! This will make a decent beater watch for me! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Now, back to lurking the Montblanc I've seen on eBay...

Hmm, didn't see the Turnbull & Asser tie, but as usual I was browsing with one eye and trying to stop my kid from knocking over the teacup display with the other, so I'm just glad I found anything at all. Out of curiosity, why did you pass on the T&A and the Holland & Holland I picked up? Just too small-time? And yeah, this isn't exactly an obscure spot - it's extremely convenient to LA's third or fourth most famous matzoh-ball soup.

For the record, I wasn't reposting that Canali jacket to try to sell it - I really wanted some feedback on how to be a good citizen of this thread. (And I got lots of very helpful PMs, so thanks again everyone.)

Rocky Mountain Featherbed is a VTG outerwear grail in my opinion.  If you decided to flip that, especially given the popular size, you'd probably be surprised at your return.  Also RMF was recently rebooted by a Japanese company that purchased the name and now produces luxe down outerwear.  http://rocky-mountain-featherbed.com/

Most importantly, how that made it all the way to Sweden and also how I haven't found a RMF piece a mere 4 hours away from Jackson in Denver is beyond me.

The Turnbull was unexceptional, I happened to recognize it by chance. Plus it was $7. Which, had it been amazing, would have been a steal, but for what it was, was about $5 too much. One mustn't get brand-drunk when thrifting, it's too easy to buy crap that way. The H&H was just too obscure for my liking, and I didn't want to get stuck with that print. I still try to fall back on the "don't buy things you don't want to get stuck with" concept. Also my head wasn't totally screwed on for some reason, I seldom buy from that shop based on their prices, so I usually just go to look and not buy. I need to make an effort to check the store out more often, it's maybe a 4 minute walk from my place.

I picked this up during a recent trip to the Thrift store.  The jacket seemed very different from the normal corduroy jacket.  Any idea what this is and is it worth anything?

 

Thanks.
