So today I found a vintage pin-striped wool Yves Saint Laurent 3 piece suit. Does anyone know really if they are worth picking up? (in terms of quality?) I haven't ever seen the label besides in orphan suit coats but this was the whole set for a decent price. Should I go back for it?

FWIW, I have a linen cardigan and it's actually quite nice. Linen doesn't add much/any warmth. I've found its great for mid 70's days when I would like to wear something besides a button down and chinos to work but don't want to sweat.

I'm not sure what's considered good in terms of item hunting, but I found a somewhat decent pair of sperry's today for $5.30.


They need some cleaning (I'm thinking of buying some refurbishing supplies for shoes I'll be buying), but I think they'll work fine for when the summer comes. That gives me two sperry's now :)

 

 

 

 

 

What I still need to find/buy:

More long-sleeved shirts

A cardigan or peacoat

A full suit (or two)

Decent penny loafers and oxfords

 

I found some loafers which fit today, but they had full rubber soles, which disinterested me...I'm not sure if I should've grabbed em though.

Are some of my pickups all suits / sport coats. Not sure the Attolini is authentic but I will post pics later.

Changed my thrifting habits - I aint picking up the "fairly" old stuff anymore. If it is older than 10 years or in less than mint condition, nighty night it stays there. I am not against the vintage scene but a 15 year old Brioni suit is not vintage nor is it in any manner modern. Basically unpickable in my book and offensive to look at as well. I left around 4 of these Brioni's behind the other day and it was a heck of a decision given they were only 9bucks a pop.
 

Cant wait to see pics of what you did pick up..

 

puzzled.gif I'll take those Brions all day long....left an easy $400-600 smackers on the racks imo. Any Brioni in good condition is $100-$150 without much effort.

Someone here in the low-mid '40s sizing want one or should have one at a little higher than thrift prices?  Not really into flipping, but maybe if someone (Brian?) wants me to proxy and split profits... Don't know.  There was a dated Zegna peak-lapel dinner jacket too, but it was paired with random pants.  Sigh.  I think I'm finally reaching that point after the initial noob-craze of picking up everything you think is good and tradeable, to now being extremely wary of picking up a CT shirt in a tradeable size that is pink plaid (happened yesterday).

Shawl-collar midnight blue is SO in right now b/c of the James Bond, but I'd prob still leave it unless you had someone in mind before buying it. I've bought a number of Brooks Brother and Hickey Freeman Tux's and they all sold fast and for decent money.

 

CT.... dont even look at those anymore lol8[1].gif (actually just check them for metal collar stays and move on)

Do want!



On another note:

Picked this up on the cheap but sadly it was final sale and no returns. Too slim for me. Available for a thift thread member at cost.

NWT Taylor Supply Co. Roosevelt Jacket. Made in NYC. Slim L.
