The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 3955

post #59311 of 125118

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...

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

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.

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,

Nice haul, 330CK.

Oxxford notch-lapel tux with some serious nicks and a moth-hole: still worth picking up?

^^Noted, thanks.

Posted that 5 minutes after Dm7 ransacked a Pacific Palisades mansion while the family cowered in the safe room, so didn't expect much of a reply..

Nice haul, obviously. Jesus.

If you wonder why you don't find anything, that's why.

At the fifth Charvet shirt, my eyes started to glaze over and I started shaking my head denying that life was real.

I can't see much of that pink Charvet and yet I know I WANT.

(Oh, and those white Guccis are an absolute abomination)

Sebago also makes wingtips, but I like Aldens a lot more. Hand stitched Chromexcel moccasin construction is substantially better.

Still not as bad as those Hermes shoes with the giant H on them from the other day.
