Local thrift store gets alterations rejections from Zegna retailer, so essentially brand new but the hem on the pant or sleeve on the jacket was too short, etc.. picked up a pair of navy Zegna trousers for $75. They have a black pair I may go back for.

Faconnable shirt, PRL braided belt ('98, w/ tag), 1970s Tori Richard shirt (a bit too small).

When I see that rayxlui is viewing the thread, I can't help but not post any clothes because it's not going to matter as soon as he posts his.

Thanks! They look better than I expected. Then I went back and realized you specified 9D and not 10D. ffffuuuu.gif Phooey.

Meanwhile, oh those funny gods of thrift.



I have begun to look in earnest for some things in a larger size for a friend. After all, whenever I look for stuff that fits ME, I find nothing but XL, 17½ and the like in great brands that I just leave behind. Now that I WANT them, I find MULTIPLE deadstock NWOT Brooks Brothers gingham checks (marked up to $9 ffffuuuu.gif ) in Small. I never find Smalls.

I ponied up the $27. The friend can wait another week.

Not surprising God would have a thrift store, after all Jesus saves!

XD (no offense to anyone; I'm Christian).

 I have to ask... Out here, I may occasionally complain of a lack of higher quality stuff (e.g. In the last year I've found 2 Brioni,  5 Zegna,  5 Canali, and 1 Isaia SCs in thrift stores).  Only found one full suit from those brands, and it had serious urine stains on the pants.  But I generally get these from $1-$5 each - occasionally, I have to pay $10-12.  The thought of $75 slacks makes me cringe - I see those (preowned, not NWT) pants going for $20-$40 on ebay.  What is the average price for a SC like the ones I listed in the big cities (LA, Chicago, NYC)?  $40-50?  

 

Starting to think that maybe the grass isn't really greener over there... :)

 

Thanks,
