I've seen that label before, on one of the ugliest ties I've ever come across.

Not shown- Dual vent with internal belt across the tail.

 

Needs a good cleaning but overall maybe worth a flip attempt?

post #61730 of 121831

Very much yes.

FYI - some great prices on Gloverall duffle coats on the Gilt outerwear sale right now. Just scooped up two.

 

Oh, my poor wallet.

Like I said, not trying to bash it. Just don't expect sf mainline dollars. Still a good find.

Speaking of thrift fits. Here's mine from today.

Please excuse the crappy camera courtesy of Blackberry, and the flash.



SC: Huntsman bespoke (dual vent, btw), freaking killer trade from Sully, with MOP buttons taken from a PRL orphan I picked up,
Shirt: Faconnable (hard to see, but powder blue glenplaid with dark blue overcheck), thrifted by me
No tie (*gasp*) because it was forbidden at the meeting
PS: Italian handrolled silk, unknown origin, thrifted by me (I think)
Trou: Kilgour French & Stanbury, thrifted by me
Socks: Pantharella, TJX'd by me
Shoes: AE Bradleys, traded here

I was asked by one of my co-workers where the yacht was moored.

Big shout-out to NATAKU. There was a very small delay shipping a pair of pants he kindly passed on to me, so he included a killer LP shirt as well icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also, air force uniform from 1962?

Not sure if it is the same one, but I also came across a coat with an Olympic delegate badge on it a while back in SS.

Found some cool stuff today. Mostly for me, but if you're interested in something let me know.

I don't always buy Burberry, but when I do it's a recent waxed cotton and leather coat w/ real horn buttons.

West is Dead chinos





Dockers K1 Chinos





Awesome 70's custom Hawaiian shirt. Can't wait for the warm weather to come so I can rock this.





Wings + Horns crewneck sweatshirt





Vintage Woolrich wool shirt





Killer 40's McGregor wool shirt. Side gussets. Horn Buttons. Pure awesome. Headed to the cleaners tomorrow for a pressing. Looks like it's been rumpled up for the past 30 years.

I kept my cool, didn't react to the fact that she'd just nearly ruined a $600 pair of shoes (that I bought new, at retail, because I just got sick of waiting to find a pair in a thrift)

Lesson learned.

I will

1) NEVER PAY RETAIL AGAIN

2) Keep a change of shoes in the car for stops like this

3) Remove tie bars, ties, cufflinks, watches etc before getting elbow deep in a rack full of pee stained clothes




BTW- if anybody happens to come across a Georg Jenson tie bar in an Austin area Goodwill, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know.

 

Ouch. I feel you man, that's rough. That's part of the reason why I thrift in my beat up old jacket, t-shirts, light wash jeans and sneakers.

I probably would have flipped shit on the fatty as well. But I'd find it a bit weird yelling "YOU RUINED MY $600 SHOES!" at a thrift store.

 

EDIT - To praise Nataku's awesome haul! Mega thumbs up man!
