Sorrry for the double post, I forgot my favorite piece: Samuelsohn for Paul Stuart, 100% cashmere. Fits me like a glove right off the rack.

A bit late to the party on this but that's awesome. I went back to school recently after a few years working a job I disliked and life has been 1000x better ever since. Best of luck in the program.

Gotta say, I run into Evisu like half the times I go thrifting. Didn't think the eBay ROI was very good on it, and would never wear it, so I never pick it up.

(I may work at the new gant flagship instead though because I have more connections there and they give you a free head to toe outfit when you are hired...)

 

Your plan sounds a lot better than his plan.

Huge score, that's great! So much awesomeness with members lately. Way better than when everyone was losing their jobs a couple months ago.

There were actually student protests when they raised the fees a few years ago. Previously, there were no fees and students got upset. Of course, the remainder is paid by us (taxpayers), so it's all relevant. Everyone received the same deal (education paid by the state or you receive pay during your apprenticeship), so it all works out I suppose.

 

It is awesome, but all you Americans who are jealous just remember: they have to pay a tax for their TVs and radios. So who really has it good?

The A&S cashmere I found a few weeks back is up on Ebay, starting at $199. Almost a dozen watchers. Rarely get that many at that starting price.

Just to be clear: That's the highlights from the last SEVERAL WEEKS. Not just one score.

Passed a few days ago on an awesome Zegna taglia exclusivo solid charcoal because it was a MF orphan. And several awesome squares today because they were machine sewn. WTF with that?

+1 Lovely jacket.  The cut seems somewhat simple, but elegant.

UNAVAILABLE

 

After that GW incident when some lady snatched my heavy winter gloves, I headed to Marshall's where I picked up these nice Dents for $15 (normally don't quote prices, but seems more appropriate for discount stores, yes?).

Faconnable linen shirt for me

Two tartan Pendleton blazers I gave my sister for her birthday.

I also picked up some more things for myself:  a Pearl Izumi Polartec half-zip mid-layer I am going to use for running, a striped RL Sport shirt, and some nice brown captoe semi-brogues made in Italy by Cable & Co.

 

 

AVAILABLE

Details:

Chinos:   J.Crew, thrifted

Vest:   untagged, thrifted

Tie:   Oscar de la Renta Couture, thrifted

PS:   untagged, C21

Socks:   local discount store

Hat:   Borsalino for BB, local vintage shop

Jacket:   bespoke velvet blazer, local vintage shop

The 2 local vintage shops are on the lower end of the price-scale, equal to and sometimes significantly lesser in price compared to some of the pricier thrifts (especially west-coast, from what I gather).

Did somebody say SELVEDGE???!!! LOL! +1

 

For those gents that are going back to school, I support it! After 4 years of hiatus, I finally went back to take my senior thesis class, essentially a research class on contemporary problems in the wonderful world of criminal justice!

 

I don't want to open up a can of worms...So any comment on the matter please direct them to me in the form of PMs...I did my thesis on the efficacy of gun control. If you are really interested in the matter, please PM me and I'll send you a copy of my paper. It's only 20 pages. So it's a light read.

*Gasp! Wait a minute, what do you mean you quit thrifting? You are never ever going to buy anything from a thrift shop? Hmmm, that's hard to believe...I'll give you a few months to maybe a year before the you get bitten by the bug again! biggrin.gif

 

Unrelated to thrifting, big shout outs to Friskydingo for keeping an open mind to read my research paper on gun control and giving me feedback! Awesome! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sure you did. And even if you did, you'll be back. You can't quit it...it's like crack baby. You'll go a day or two and say you've quit. Then you'll drive by one and say "one stop won't hurt me". Next think you know you're down on Skid Row at this hole in the wall joint with a arm load of fine Italian stuff. Who you trying to kid baby...you know your an addict. nod[1].gif
