If it was someone on here, sorry I had was 10 minutes earlier going through your section. Picked up 2 Zegnas, 3 Tommy Bahama silk Hawaiis for summer, a NWT Timberland flannel, etc. 


I never go to that Goodwill anymore. Actually, that's a lie. I do, but I never find anything anymore. (Oh, and that wasn't me; I look like a slob usually.)

 

The one reason I miss my job in the suburbs is the thrifting. Lunchtime thrifting in Roswell was way better than what I've run into in town in the past month.

Helmut Lang jeans tagged 36(not sure if they were worth picking up, but they were cheap)

Also this isn't what I'm looking for right?

 

Sorry, bud. That's the diffusion line. SCs and suits are fused to shits. But it might still flip if you get it at a good price.

Hey, I don't care about hockey! Can I still tell you about the shit I found?

I can't figure out whether DM7 is in LA or New England or, god help us, both. Either way, someone left a few things in LA for us smalltimers. Nothing earth-shattering; everything available unless otherwise noted. And a blanket apology for the crappy pix.

Buncha ties:

Polo, Brooks wool (keeping), Polo, Giorgio Armani, Zegna


Matching Robert Talbott 7-folds, recent


An Arnys and a Brioni with whaever you call the thing on the tail end of the tie that buttons to your shirt.



Black 1" Cortina Trafalgar belt, marked 40:



Super lightweight cotton/viscose navy Prada trousers, marked 52 with a shortish inseam:


Dooney & Bourke braces:


Shooz:

Bally loafers, EU 8.5:


Ferragamo Oxfords in great shape, marked 9 but measure like a 9.5:


Johnston & Murphy loafers in 9.5D - 99% sure these are shell cordovan:


And finally, stuff I probably should have passed on but didn't:

Old-label LL Bean wool ... let's call it a shacket? Tagged medium, fits me like a 40R Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Steeple Gate - would you call these spectators? No idea on the brand, but made in Italy and possibly some kind of exotic leather and kind of awesome. Snakeskin, I take it? I'm extran00bish on this stuff. 9.5. Checkout lady described them as "super-cute." Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'd call them full brogue spectators -- certainly unusual two-tone in the brown.  Used to white instead of light brown.  Good snag!

I'm convinced nobody actually cares about hockey, it just gives them something to talk about since their football teams suck.

Arny's is very cool! They're out of biz now, so collectors will be scooping them up.

Don't think I've seen anything that old from LL Bean. Pretty cool. Those shoes, though...

I don't know, I think Spoo would totally rock them.  Actually, I think I might be able to pull them off... PM sent!  YOLO, right?  mwink[1].gif

Hey gents, if you are looking for a beater blazer that has a modern fit, check this bad boy out!

 

http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-boiled-wool-blazer~245807_-1.html

 

Thinking about coping one. If you are a stickler on fit, like me, call up their customer service and ask for measurements. It turns out I normally fit a 40 but I have to size up to a 42.

 

Cheers!

Basically compact, shrunken, compressed wool, sometimes mixed with other fabric.
