$4 from local GW  Just about passed it up but saw it was bronze with a super patina. I'm reading about them now. Even if it is a "fake" it is still a cool addition.

Some great hauls as usual you guys, not even counting the ones involving U-hauls.....insane....icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Had a pretty good fri/sat, but the worst part was seeing 6 x Zegna Su Misera suits + 1 YSL rive gauche (I think an slightly older tag though) all w/ working cuffs, mostly trofeo with a 15milmil15 & traveller mixed in , priced kinda high around 60ish but what really stopped me were the stains in the inside if you know what I mean....ffffuuuu.gif

 

Here are my pickups:

 

Florsheim PTB's Shell Cordovan Color #8, 9C edit: 9.5 B though they dont seem terribly narrow

 

 

Alden black split toes, size 8 but fit so keeping (1st pair of Aldens out of @ 20 or so that actually fit)

 

Alden Kiltie Tassel Loafers, Sz 11D

 

 

Top to Bottom: Loro Piana (1st LP shirt in wild) Fray for Bergdorf, Hermes, all fit so N/A for now

 

 

Also found some Hermes cotton pants, but found a hole when I got home....ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

 

PRL light grey wool, checked cotton/wool blend flannel, both my size, N/A

 

BB 1818 Madison, 40 x 30

 

Woolrich brown tweed casual jacket, kinda short in length but fits, on the fence @ keeping...

 

 

8 x Zanella flat fronts, all tagged 31 but measure @ 32 by about 28.5 inseam(+ appx 2" hem)...actually left 3 more pairs

w/ issues such as stains, etc.

 

 

BB Fun shirt, size large....

 

Been wanting a down vest for a while, would have preferred a 60/40 blend,

but minty EB goose down vest , keeping

And all for 32$! This happens on a regular basis. I have grown to really enjoy a good thrift store.
Welcome, friend. We live by a single rule here: Pics or it didn't happen. There are no exceptions.

Or not. Sounds like you'd have snagged them.

Amazing. Pics of some decidedly not cheap stuff I picked up tomorrow.

If anyone wants to get me a birthday gift next month they had an AMAZING Harris tweed Harrington jacket... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Holy shit!!!!! I never even heard about this place. I just spent the last hour checking out their website...... happy.gifdrool.gif

Yesterday - Picked up a cashmere HSM blazer.


And this Polo Ralph Lauren jacket. 3 roll 2, throat latch, leather elbow patches, heavy wool. Awesome details. Been looking for something like this all winter.

Sexy Tyrwhitt. Versace.



I didn't think Eugene wold support several active thrifters, but it looks like both of you are coming up with some pretty good stuff. I always told myself that it wasn't worth the trip down.

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that Versace is fake.

Doesn't surprise me at all, took a flyer at 1.49. Thanks for the heads up fistbump.gif

I picked this shirt at a local thrift yesterday.  It doesnt look like it was worn.  Haven't seen this brand and I don't find much info on SF.   Is it worth anything?

 

The color is much lighter (kind of baby blue).

Dude, how can that tie be fake when it has not one, not two, but three tags confirming its authenticity?

Have to disagree with you there. Nice as that jacket is, it looks too big in the shoulders, which is causing some rumpling in the fabric in the upper arm.

Wow, that polo is fantastic!!!!

"Burberrys" is older Burberry, correct? Saw an old trench with that label. Was a nice coat at some stage, but was unfortunately in rough shape.
post #60674 of 116065
Anyone know anything about Barena Venezia? Found this in the womens section - fits me reasonably well picked it up and will probably keep but completed eBay listings look like it might do well for me there. DB all cotton, dual vent, completely unstructured.




Other find I'm particularly chuffed with - T&A 100% cashmere sweater. A bit of piing but no major issues and nothing that a once over with a razor won't fix.
Moral of the story is always check what's on the mannequins!

Burberry's rebranding strategy included dropping the apostrophe-S in 1998.

'1998 - Bravo taps Italian designer Roberto Menichetti to launch the designer Burberry Prorsum line. Photographer Mario Testino is hired to retouch the brand’s image, newly rebranded as Burberry (dropping the “s”). Cool Britannia models Stella Tennant and Kate Moss will embody Burberry’s new spirit in Testino’s black-and-white ad campaigns. The Diana tartan—pale blue with navy, black, and red stripes—introduced in memory of the late Princess of Wales. Alexis Bittar designs the brand’s first ready-to-wear jewelry collection. Vogue staffer Katherine Betts profiles Menichetti in the December story “Check Mate.” '
