I don't know how I forgot about this one, but I also picked up my first Borrelli today. Crazy thick MOP buttons.

Made up for lost time and went out for 7 hours today. Paying for it now, but just took my drugs. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

No pics yet, but Ive got some pretty sweet stuff, including a 10lb Schott leather, 70s AMF Harley Davidson leather vest, BB 100% camel, amazing outerwear, and cool Roundtree and Yorke barn coat, amongst a lot of other stuff Ill totally trade on (some of them wink.gif ).

Anyhow, hope you have all been well!

Welcome back, Spoo. Glad to hear you're on the mend.

I hit one store today. RLPL burgundy tie, couple of toys for my kids (who also played hide and seek at the store), and one of the coolest BB pieces I've seen in a while: beige button down cardi with real MOP buttons. Grabbed it for myself (indenting to shave off the light pilling) but it's much too big. So bigger guys looking for cardis, get at me. Hope to take some shots tomorrow.

Edit: And passed on 3 pairs of some of the nicest pairs of Church's Custom Grades I've ever seen. Black, calf, brouged wing and cap toe in an elongated last with squared toe on two of them. Very good condition, but the color and the price put me off. I think they were tagged 10A, but they were awfully narrow. If anyone is interested, I'm willing to proxy at a very modest fee to cover my time and gas, since this store is a bit of a drive. Gaddamn I wish they were a D width, and at least one of them in brown!

Yeah, they make the thickest MOPs I've ever seen! I would go out on a limb and say they make one of the most high end shirts in the world.

Borrelli are defo good dress shirts. My two cents for best dress shirt:

Buttons: Toss up between Borrelli and Fray (Truzzi worth a mention as well).

Fabric: Kiton by a country mile.

Handwork: Kiton for sure, Truzzi / Fray probably next in line.

Style: Cannot beat Tom Ford here - great collars and good athletic cuts nod[1].gif

Elegant patterns: Etro for me are awesome by having funky but not over crazy designs.

Jizz Mopper: Robert Graham by far the most apt shirt for wiping up a self made mess.

Best Overall: Style has most weight, therefore Tom Ford has the best dress shirt for my money with Kiton a close second happy.gif

I had 10 minutes in a thrift before having to pick up some kids at a dance lesson. Talk about pressure! But I came away with these boots. Now I have an awesome pair of beater boots. They were beat to hell and the photo is after treating them once with Lexol Leather Conditioner. Not sure about the date but surely at least 45+ years old. The company shuttered in 1986 and I found a photo online (in all places the Bata Shoe Museum) of a ski boot they made in 1945.

No thrifting today, but my wife and I spent about three hours at the local REI for their "Scratch and Dent" sale...

 

I came up with a pair of Scarpa rock climbing shoes and a pair of Vibram Fivefingers. The wife scored well with a pair of leather Vasque boots, Acorn shearling slippers (for around the house!), Scarpa rock climbing shoes, a pair of Vibram Fivefingers and a Deuter backpacking pack. We also picked up a cool steel Coleman cooler.

 

Off to a different REI store tomorrow morning for more of the same before watching the Niners roll in the SuperBowl!

Thanks for this heads up. I stopped by a BE exchange and picked up 3 pairs of NWT TWID selvedge jeans. Two for me one for a friend. It's great to add some great denim to my collection for a low price.

Zill fabric is ridiculous.

In the trenches for 10 hours today, tired so you get crappy pics of the haul.

 

First sidenote, found my first pair of aldens, Brown wingtips, looked to be in good shape, soles worn but thats fixable...turned them around...the idiot must have used his right shoe to take his left off every day, had completly torn the top layer of leather off the rear of the left shoe.  I would have still considered grabbing but they weren't priced and I didn't feel like going thru the hassle.

 

Back to the haul...

 

PRL Madras...I noticed there was some spots that needed removed, failed to notice tears in the collar...probably worthless now

 

 

 

Armani Collezioni Sport Coat  46R...probably should have left

 

 

 

Brooks Brothers 42L Sport Coat

 

 

Not sure what I was thinking....this loud enough to sell on the bay? It's a "Phoenix" brand

 

 

Hickey Freeman Customized LOUD FU Sport Coat

 

 

Burberry London Kensington 44R

 

 

Naked and Famous Selvedge 29

 

 

Willis & Geiger Sweater XL

 

 

Eton Etastar & a Robert Talbott Carmel

 

 

Couple Pendletons...didn't notice any holes on initial inspection

 

 

Popped the Hermes cherry I believe, can someone confirm its real?

 

 

SWEET PRL Blackwatch Suspenders--Great shape

 

 

Schott Jacket 44

 

 

 

And about 6-7 shirts for my non SF approved wardrobe I sport on the side sometimes.

50's at the newest. That tag looks ancient. These are hard to date though. My guess would be 30's.

The older shirts were very nice, but that's a bit of a stretch. I'd say Fray tops Borrelli IMO. I'm sure they's some uber-obscure Neapolitan tailor that we've all never heard of who makes a dress shirt that tops all.

polo - savers, armani collezioni - red racks, brooks brothers - maj-r thrift, hickey freeman - goodwill, burberry - goodwill, schott - maj-r thrift

how'd i do? foo.gif so ridiculous that i recognize stuff. FWIW, if that's the schott jacket i think it is, 99% it's not real leather, it's been sitting there for a while, felt like pleather to me. also the hickey freeman jacket is cashmere i'm quite certain, there was a moth nip on it so i passed. also check the left back sleeve of that brooks jacket by the wrist, pretty sure there was a stealthy food stain
