Very nice! I'd say late 70's to early 80's. They were pretty popular to wear on the street too during this time, so a lot of companies made them. Sears made damn nice stuff up until the mid-80's when a lot of places really took a nose-dive in quality. It really made me sad when we were in California this past December for Christmas. We went to this monstrosity called Sears Grand to find a couple last-minute Christmas gifts. I'll tell you one thing, Grand it was not. Never been so disappointed in a store in my whole life. The store was literally set up like a K-Mart or Target. I hadn't been in a Sears in over a decade so I was really disappointed to see the quality of clothing had tanked even more than the last time I was in there. Check-out lines like a grocery store. What?! To top it off, they didn't even have gift boxes! They said that store had never done gift boxes. Absolutely ridiculous. I told the cashier that I sincerely hoped the company would soon rediscover their founding principles and values for the sake of their business. It seemed he really didn't care too much. frown.gif

Well, nothing. But I figured there is probably even a market for Hermes boxes.

Anyone tell me about Trussini? Only real grab today was a cashmere sport coat made from Loro Piana cashmere:



Made in Italy, European 56

The current Marshalls/TJ Maxx clearance sales seems to be dragging random items I never see to some locations. Grabbed some RLPL and RLBL pocket squares but left behind a PL 7 fold tie which was the single decent item at one of the worst Marshalls in the area and a few other PL, Moschino and Costume National ties and a Prada cashmere/silk sweater at another location.

Thrifted today Costume Nationale Homme Size 9 for $9!

post #60626 of 114814

Hi guys, I have a question to ask here. 

Today I found 2 items in the charity shop, they left me with the "a-ha" but not quite.

1st - navy blazer 100% Wool 3 pockets applied but with normal chest pocket, double vent - branded BOSS by Turo Finland, 2 golden buttons, 2 buttons on sleeve, quite good quality and of a thicker fabric but not sure...maybe someone knows about it more.

2nd- Brooks Brothers shirt  like here http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Supima%C2%AE-Cotton-Non-Iron-Slim-Fit-BrooksCool%C2%AE-Dress-Shirt/288Q,default,pd.html?dwvar_288Q_Color=YELL&contentpos=85

perfect condition, I don't know why, maybe because of the quality, but there was one problem, neck size was ok 15 1/2 but the sleeves were huge for my size S arms (I have a strange body, small shoulders and torso, thin arms, neck 15.5, and tall..), this for a slim fit seemed huge for me, I have a RL classic fit shirt and even that is not as wide at sleeves like this one. 

Should I go for it? Is it normal for BB style to be like that? Or should I work out my arms, eventually I will...

My favorite of the dreidel neckties. There was a bowtie with a lighter blue background I really liked, but they sold out of the necktie version of that print. Jews! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif It's a shame stitches doesn't post in this thread, he'd comment for sure.

75% off at a local consignment. I've been eyeing this sucker for a month. My favorite thrifted/consignmented? tie ever. Barely edges out the Bullock & Jones red knit with handsewn navy spots. Both from the same store.

With it being Black Fleece, it's hard to tell whether it was made like that or whether someone lopped off the cuffs. laugh.gif

Wonderful thread! Just today I picked up (all at the same goodwill) 3 NWT Charvat Ties, 2 kiton ties, 5 Zegna ties (2 NWT), 2 Paul smith ties, 2 brooks brothers NWT ties and a wonderful brooks brothers camel hair sport coat that seems to be brand new. And all for 32$! This happens on a regular basis. I have grown to really enjoy a good thrift store.
