$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....
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....
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....
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

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.
Year started slow, first finds not available. I am trying to be choosy. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Highlife: Great shirt haul! Always impressed when I see Hermes non-ties.
I drove over to buffalo today... No time for thrifting, but I hit up O'Connell's and the outlets... Omg O'Connell's is amazing. It's like a trad's wet dream with 4 foot high piles of flannel pants, racks and racks of tweeds, huge racks of Barbour, tables piled with Marcoliani and Bresciani socks, huge boxes of Shetland sweaters, etc. Theres more good stuff in there than I've ever seen before. 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...
Holy shit!!!!! I never even heard about this place. I just spent the last hour checking out their website......
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
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.
Here you go: Info on Piero Puliti shirts
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.” '
