Anybody have a line on Olympic delegate badges? I found a blazer with a 96 Atlanta patch from the Denmark delegation. Probably not worth anything, but it was cool to see.
Also, air force uniform from 1962?
You did better than I would have. I would have had a Frenchy moment and gone Rascal tipping.
Pure brag from the record shop yesterday with the exception of the shirt in the lower right corner from the day before. Starting at the top L-R.

The Borrelli has some of the worst neck stains ever, but at $2.95 I figure it's worth a shot if for nothing else buttons... But yeah I have to try cleaning it up first. The rest of them are pretty much tip top, and pretty much too big for most of you (17-17.5).
That has been there for a while. By the way, I cleaned out that store yesterday. Sorry :/
I should know this by now but are the Innocenti Oro label Tom James suits of any quality. I see some of the Regs pick them up once and a while but not that often. I found a sick green/blue windowpane with ticket pocket, dual vents, etc that will likely fit with some tailoring but it was $15. Style is there but how is quality?
I have picked up Tom James. I pick up a suit once to flip on the bay but could not get rid of it so it went back to Goodwill. Now I only pick them up for myself when it is something in mint condition (like the Holland & Sherry suit I recently copped!). I think the quality is certainly decent enough to wear.
Damn, every time I tried to catch up to this thread I would just fall farther behind... for a week. Finally gave up and skipped several days worth. Saw the amazing Cucinelli sweater finds. Gotta say that seems like the haul of the last few days (sorry Mainy).
Haven't had much time for thrifting but I've got a few things to show tonight and the stuff I picked up last weekend in Buffalo.
Today was a near-miss day, tho, sadly. Am currently following an eBay listing very similar to this navy, 2 button, Hickey Freeman bespoke with Loro Piana fabric suit. Store tagged it as a 52 jacket (though seems fatter around the middle, more 54 or even 56ish), but the real kicker was the pants. 50x28. Yowza. I'll trust tailoring for a lot of things, but not to take 10 inches out of a waist.
I have marveled at the girth of the man who had that suit commissioned. humorously, it is probably an executive at the hospital where this thrift shop is located. #irony
She may be a flea market-er. I often find (on major discount days) people sifting through the racks intensely with extremely full carts of t-shirts and other junk.
I am not sure but think that only works if they list where they live in location. Many sellers often write "United States" or something.
Here are some of my recent finds.
