Paradise Found shirt, J Crew cords.
Sitting in the comfy chair at work.
they always have a bunch of barbour's and belstaffs shipping from thailand and I always nervous about purchasing but this one looks nice good job!
I would just like to thank ATLjon for hooking me up with a sweet sportcoat - quick and fair.
Quick noob question, are Brooks Bros 1818 sportcoats of interest? There was one on the rack, but the patch pockets were stitched closed (not basted I don't think). It felt like there was a pocket there on the inside of the lining. Dunno. Was a reasonably attractive tweed. Tags were missing, im guessing 42-44 in size.
I didn't pm him then because I didn't expect them to be exactly in my size but who was the one who found these 3 ascot changs?
Several "first time in a thrift" moments for me today - Valentino, Pal Zileri, Zegna tie, Armani tie to name a few. Likely all from the same owner because they were all about 15-20 years old and ugly as shite. Olive green DB suit. Gold and black colored Loro Piana 130s sport coat? W.T.F.
Also, I stopped by a place that had Jos Bank suits (granted, some of there were NWT) for $150-$250, Jos Bank ties for $35 and white Cole Haan saddles for $79. I wanted to ask them if they just liked keeping that stuff in the store instead of selling it but I walked out after a few minutes.
Me too, buddy, me too...OH wait, I did find a Kiton tie but nothing else...
I say north of $50.
Recent finds, most likely not available, need that dolla right now.
A cool random mix of stuff, some found in LA, a few in OC.
I forget if I posted this one before. Thick/heavy as hell, actually justifies the price, and was left hanging on the recently put out racks by the store's vultures.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Wood buttons too (Click to show)
Ok, little guys in cold weather climates, I'd be up for a trade on this if you guys have anything my size. I would be rocking the fuck out of this today if it were my size.
The one we're... I usually hesitate/hate to use NWOT, but if a shirt ever was, this has to be. Fabric/tags are crisp, whites are bright white, the way the sleeves had been rolled, I feel like it was on a mannequin somewhere.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Only the second buy-able Eton I've found in the wild... Clubby collar, sized 15 3/4...Wtf?
This I was surprised to find in the shop that I did, there was a green striped mate I had to sadly leave. As expected, the fabric feels a-mazing.Dem buttons and stuff... (Click to show)
Wish they'd show up better, so colorful, and I love that the collar button is slightly bigger/thinner and signed.
A first for me, this one made it to the racks, and I'm so, so, so, stoked to say fits me pretty much perfectly.
Same claw stitching on the buttons as the Borrelli. Hmm...
Found this guy at the same place, same day. Versatile or burn it with fire? Haha... Photo doesn't do the hues justice.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Then just the other day, I found this at my local shop. Wasn't even going to thrift that day, had a date and thought ok I'm going to go in for 5 minutes. Needs some tlc (a good cleaning/pressing, a few cuff buttons, etc) but, well...Check them deets boys (Click to show)
I didn't even see the collar in store.
Picky Picky, and what's this... un-opened main button holes... On porpoise.
Sick cuffs, 3 button with two working... One cuff has buttons 2 and 3, the other 1 and 3... Need some mates.
Last but not least. Damn how'd I only get the edge of the tag...

Confirms that the regular vultures at the store know next to nothing, which explains how I find anything there considering they sit and wait for every new rack/cart to come out. I'm sure the shit eating grin on my face was undeniable, as were my saucer sized eyes.
WTF, my earlier post was faqed up due to the spoilers. SO, reposting these for pure braggery! I'm keeping one and the other one is prolly gonna go towards a trade.
Found these two side by side during a speed picking. Come to my greedy little fingers! I literally shouted, "Woa" after seeing these! Cherry popped!
