Crappy crappy day of thrifting, BUT saving grace is I now do NOT need a Tuxedo!!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif And this thing is amazingballs x 100 (IMO).

 

Highlight of thrifting is a Steven Alan casual jacket in MY FREAKING SIZE! but nothing else really at 8 stores.

 

1st time ever in a C21 and OMFG I was like a kid in a really expensive candy store. Left a $30 Tom Ford PS as I have 15 high end PS coming in the mail from an e-thrift.....peepwall[1].gif

I know there's a lot of bike people in this thread.  Scored this a few days ago for myself.  Loving it... except for the pain in my legs and butt!

 

 

Needs a front brake or straps for the pedals, ideally both for basic safety.

Does some of that include T&A?? If so, I may know where you acquired those. Anyway, I picked up this really cool, vintage, HSM jacket. Probably one of the oldest I have come by. However, I am thinking that it may be a women's jacket but the measurements seem to fit a 38R: 21" underarm, 24.75" sleeve, 18-18.5" shoulders, but it has a feminine like style and the sleeves have no buttons. Any insight would be appreciated.

Had an interesting day. A lot of the thrift stores have these perpetual 50-75% off sales, and I think they truly believe they have no repeat customers because they're always pitching it as a brand new limited time sale. I made the mistake of asking if a particular item fell under their 75% off winter clothes. She immediately started bringing me coats, sweaters, and other winter items and literally wouldn't stop until I had left the store. "But it's made in Italy, Italian made right here," she barked while holding up a jacket that looked like it was pulled off a body that had fallen into a wood chipper. At another store two old ladies crashed into each other and one fell down and set off one of those necklace beepers they advertise on TV. She was alright.

2X C. Thrywitts, 16.5x38. Top one is “sea island quality”



Lincs by David Chu gingham orange shirt, sz M. In a sea of drab stafford shirts, this one screamed, “Pick me!”. So I did shog[1].gif



English made tie goodness. New and Lingwood, Hilditch Key.

VV Patriotic tie, Etro Milano, but Made in the USA angry.gif

Brioni button down. Only the 2nd brioni shirt I've found in a thrift. Color is Pink. Tagged L.



B. Magli captoes. Not a lot of love for this brand on SF, but these are in great shape, kept in shoe trees and are very lightweight for all leather shoes. 9.5M

Some stuff for me.  My first Charvet in a while and a PRL wool harrington.

 

 

 

 

The rest is AVAILABLE.

 

48L - Don't think that applies to any of you.

 

 

Tagged L, but measures like a 44L

I prefer the look of a physique that flows, with all parts fitting together. Boobs that large make it practically impossible.
