Barbour jackets are something special. They can always be sent to Barbour to be repaired and unless completely destroyed they will have value.

While not the least bit surprising, in my (massive, at this point) amount of on-the-ground experience, the old adage largely holds true: brand is a proxy for quality.   Obviously, use your own devices to flush the details out.

...the talking point being: a recent study showed that people wearing apparel with visible premium branding were viewed more positively and actually treated differently in person. 

You can read about the experiments and results in the article (it's short - about 1 page in the real world), if that sort of thing grabs you.

Here folks is a smart thrifter. It's quite obvious that he know's what will sell and what wont if he is going to flip the items. I still see guys asking if this is the right Dior, the right YSL, etc and yet they purchased them for the hope of flipping and those items, unless bid by those who dont know the difference as well, will hardly be worth the time or money.

Props to you, ATL! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ok stuff from Little Rock over new years, and stuff from today: (also, i normally spoiler it all, but screw it no one seems to see that shit ever)

 

 

Sulka 15.5/33 i think, Orvis vest L, BB makers old and 16.5/R?

Saks leather for me

Someone has got to have this, right?Its so special brand, but it is sweet. I think its 38-40 range.

First Santoni, and some AE. Both 9D

 

MOtherfucking artioli gators, for ME, ME ME. If you don't like these, stfu, i think they're the whip. $102 Ebay, they just finally needed to be shown.

 

MINT Florsheim imperial V cleat shells. 12C

 

 

 

First tailored Jpress, and its a full sack 3/2 single vent, from 1961!. Any further info on this would be appreciated. It has a small hole or two, and its big 46ish, but ill measure. Tentatively dibbed.

 

 

 

Hickey Blazer in 44, just snagged as a staple for someone here, it was cheap. 

 

Armani black label FF cords. 32x31 I think.

 

2x basic blue thin herringbone shirts, 15x31, hamilton customs in great shape. I got these as a favor for one of you little dudes who wants nice staple shits on the cheap.

MITurkey HB suit, dual vent, ff, peak lapel, monochrome pin cord? 

Zegna high performance, probable orphan, but sold and dual vented so whatever.

 

What would you call this fabric weave? If you can tell that is. 

 

 

 

 

A first for me, and NWsome tags at least.

 

 

Another first, smedley sea island sweater Xxl

Brioni (mine), WG M bush poplin field shirt, FlippaK (could someone still please school me on this brand? Ebay isn't very helpful for mens. 

Another first! Found in Arkansas no less!

 

I bought this because its badass, and it set off my spidey sense, I kopped and as i've looked at it more I want to say its Sulka, any thoughts?

 

 

50L Sammy blazer for EvilAbed.

 

Last but not least, consignment (i dropped 135, which is very uncharacteristic), belted back, elbow suede patches, patch pocket, vented back, leather buttoned awesomeness.

Wow, this thing is sublime.  What size is this marked as?

 

 

Those Vasques are what you're looking for.  Also keep an eye out for Skywalks.  They will say that on the underside of the sole.

Crappy crappy day of thrifting, BUT saving grace is I now do NOT need a Tuxedo!!!! icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.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%5B1%5D.gif

I promise I did not rape the land before you got here laugh.gif Nothing at all?

JPress Knit Tie

JPress Tweed

Nice Zegna 3 Button "Jacket" (not an orphan)

Hugo Boss Tie for me

Robert Graham Paisley Tie (Should pay for gas for the day)

BB Mainline Suit (reunited orphans)

 

Thats it confused.gif

 

C21 (Click to show)

2 Full Rows of TF @ $80/each & 4 more full rows of Brioni at $60/each. TF's were all super wide though.

Also had 5 or 6 rows of Versace Ties at $60/eah

Top to bottom: PRL by Corneliani black crushed velvet 32x30, Linen PRL trousers 33x30, Orvis wool and cuffed trousers 40x33ish

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Are the Holland and Sherry ones worth picking up? It's thick silk... and is this Balenciaga real?

 

Vintage BR safari jacket

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Corduroy cuffs

 

 

half lined Oxxford and BB made in Italy, thinking of keeping the Oxxford if I can clean it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Can anyone help me see when this was made?

 

 

Other than the arms hows the fit? are the pockets too low, make it look dated?

 

 

 

 

 

Oh man, that RLPL wool tie...drool.gif

 

The Oxxford jacket could use a bit waist suppression. The lapels look a bit wide for my taste but it looks good on you.
