On the cusp of 30. 

 

Yeah, that was me. I didn't buy it; it was going to be one of those "It's been a week or so; I have to buy something" purchases, and I came to my senses at the last moment. I'm trying to only buy things that fit, but you know how that goes.

 

Thrifting here has been weak for the past little bit, and now I know why.

Thrifting has been weak for the last 7 years.

This thread is simultaneously the best and worst thing about SF.

picked these up today along with a zegna suit, facconable suit (both windowpane, both with working cuffs, both just too small on me censored.gif) incotex, zegna pants, zanella linen shirt, TP shirt

stuff I have pics of. A Loro Piana suit that fits like a glove icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. Loro piana tan jeans, charvet tie, Hermes that I need a little help authenticating. According to the ebay guides, it seems legit.

Seriously nice finds, dudes. Esp 330. I bought that EXACT Cucinelli off one of you awesome dudes a couple of months ago. It's seriously awesome.

In other news, I dislike the new format. Not just because I have to get used to it, because it's SLOW and unresponsive. It's like going from a BMW 335 stick shift to a Yugo.

Anyway, I hit a few stores today and found a bunch of nice "smalls": Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


L to R: hand rolled silk square, spoken for; Orvis scotch grain chucka,8D, spoken for; Ferragamo cordovan colored calf single monk plain toe wingtip, sooooo mine.

All NWOT condition -- NOT a phrase I throw around a lot: Charvet, Ferragamo, Pink, Tyrwhitt x 2

All NWOT (Starting from the blue glenplaid one) Tyrwhitt x 2, Ted Baker (tie in foreground is a Vineyard Vines kid size for my nephew)

Paul Smith Made in Italy. Some fray but otherwise decent condition.

But my biggest news: We finally redeemed a crapload of credit card miles and got a 46" flatscreen TV, new sound system and blue ray. Stoked!

+1 - it seems slow to load to me as well, must be all of the ads that they have added to each page. . . 
post #59305 of 137377

Ads? I never see ads. Adblock. Get it.

 

The new site seems faster for me, but it's been terribly slow lately. Dunno why it's slower for y'all.

330ck man you always kill it! Gmmcl, I like the latter two CT ties, very cool. Nice finds all around!

Rocky Mountain Feather Bed found in a thrift is amazing, Acronym found in a thrift is on another level. Congrats to the both of you.

Nice vinyl finds (and artwork)!  That Michael Jackson is crazy to find in unworn shape.  Wouldn't know what to do if I found it; would want to throw a vinyl party immediately, but then would feel guilty playing it.

+1 Never found a Monk album in the wild.

Holy shit those Monk records and Mothers of Invention.  Wow.

 

Not the BR you are looking for, though recent BR ebays for more than it should.  As for the Burberry, it's as cptjeff said, slim 36S, though the gorges are a little dated (i.e. low).

And then this Burberry's Suit, its a little older but it's tiny...not marked but I think it's at least a 36 if not even smaller.  Pit to Pit is about 18", shoulder seam to seam is 16", and bottom of collar to hem is 29"...is there somehow to turn those measurements into a size?

 

Damn, 330CK! Nicely done.  That Mabro is awesome, and as usual wish it were 46EU.

They're completely badass but still out of my price range at the moment unfortunately. Love those beef rolls too. Awesome color.

Also I'm sorry for the delay but I promise that I will get back to everyone who PM'd me. Crazy busy weekend but I will try to answer ASAP.

Hey all - I've been reading this for the past week or so and finally joined in.  Been thrifting steadily down around Arizona for the past year.  We don't seem to get as much recent stuff as you guys, and I've never seen a Kiton in a store.  Just two Brioni's and a handful of Oxxfords as well as a reasonable amount of Hickey Freeman, Canali and such, but they tend to be a bit more vintage.  

 

Not positive I've figured out the protocol for pictures, so I'll go conservative and put everything in the "spoiler" features.

 

Picked up 10 Nordstrom coats/suits today for about $1.50 each (Abboud, Hart Schaffner Marx 1887, Gold Trumpeter, etc...) - likely flip on ebay.

 

Found my first Oxxford suit today in a 43L - just a touch small around the waist for me.  It was only $8, so it may be worth tailoring.  Pilling a little, so maybe not...

Snagged a couple of Hickey Freeman Loro Piana Super 120s - one in a suit and another in just an orphan, both in the 44-46L range.  The coat was remarkably more recent!

I don't usually go through ties, but found a few interesting ones today.  Who can say no when they are 50 cents to a buck?

 

Some Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers ties.  Two of the Brooks Brothers appear to be fairly recent - which makes me less familiar with them.  They appear to have the new Black Fleece logo on them (in gold, so maybe gold fleece now has that logo too?)  I need to do some research because I didn't think the ties went Gold or Black Fleece...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A few more ties:  Zegna, Fendi, newer Giorgio Armani, Facconable

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

And picked up a few shirts too.  Bullock & Jones in a Cashmere/Cotton blend, Robert Talbott, and Enzo.  The Enzo is a beast at 18 1/2 / 36" and will likely head to ebay.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

All in all, not a bad day.  Look forward to any comments and what you all have found.  If I broke protocol in any way, I'm sure someone will let me know. :)

 

Later,

- sn0wman
