Was the buckle removable?


They are all removable. Any croc belt intact without a terrible amount of wear is money. Alligator too.

I meant easily removable (snapped), rather than sewn on.

Ahh, forgive me, I was implying towards a cobbler.

Cucinelli shirt




Black velvet blazer

I believe this is a Belvest tag.  Can anyone confirm or deny?






A pair of nice Aris hangers.


 


Top to bottom:  Borrelli, Barbera, Belvest



Peak lapel tuxedo.  Unvented.  Looks to be in mint condition.

Brioni.  Certainly a grail find for me in my size.



So, this should be what a first poster should be doing, lurking, learning what is crap and what is nice, then posting what should be posted...not licensed crap, not "Lauren" Polo, etc.

Great pickups and glad the thread has helped you figure out what's worth picking up and what to pass!

Eddie,

I know you do this full time but that does NOT take away from the most amazing discounted haul I have EVER seen in my life. I thought you got around 10 items or so but as I kept scrolling down my mouth continued to drop. Everything was f*n amazing!

The TB cardigans, the TF everything, the scarves, the Lanvin shoes. My f*n goodness.

Hands down. Most amazing hau!!

Congrats man

Well, they are known for making decent selvedge denim. Some would call their stuff intro to selvedge. Nice stuff.

That means you should want to get rid of more than just what you posted. Let us help you clear those closets!

 

 

Hey, that sure is a nice haul! /slowplay

 

By the way, there will inevitably be some people here that don't recognize all the brands, and thus aren't sure if everything you posted truly is esophagus-shittingly awesome. To those people, I say: Yes.

 


Noice. Although for my money Jose Canseco would be more topical these days. Or 'Rod' Ford.

 

 

So... through various channels (thanks, Spoo!) I got a message the other day from one frenchy, letting me know that he'd left a pair of Wings + Horns hi-tops at a nearby thrift.


This makes for a difficult choice. On the one hand, hey, W+H shoes. Sweet. On the other hand, if frenchy has been through here recently, there's probably no point in checking anything else. If those shoes are gone too, the whole trip is bust

 

Well, I decided to go anyway. The shoes were gone. But I did get some middling stuff that just happens to fit me perfectly.

 

BB ESF OCBD, BB ESF BD, T&A tie, NWT Club Monaco OCBD

 

Then, picked up this suit today. Not sure whether to keep (for a flip) or return. Can anyone advise?

AppleMark

 

On the one hand...

AppleMark

Kinda dated lapels...

Imperfection on the chest, more noticeable from farther away...

Unvented and ewwstained...

 

Double pleated pants...

Few imperfections that could probably be razored off.

 


On the other...

AppleMark

 

 

 

 

So, what to do?

 

Easy, flip on the bay and get $$$!

I would cop if the price is right.

Diffusion. I think Brian was able to successfully flip them.

 Hmm, I guess I did only recently learn what selvedge actually looks like...

 

 I almost picked up a pair of vintage selvedge a week or two ago. I passed because they were overalls. Later, I looked on Ebay, and found Big Mac overalls selling for nearly $300. Can't skip stuff like that anymore without researching!!

 

 I will attempt to flip the R&G. We'll see what happens.

 

 I also picked up a few sellable ties (two BB Makers and one Coach).

post #62249 of 112744

Sorry to bump this, but it was one of my last posts as a newbie.  Ended up showing up about 5 pages into the history almost a day later. :)  

 

Anyone recognize the maker of this tag ? Made in Italy for Brooks Brothers.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I would pick up all APC, jeans or otherwise (except for madras by apc, that's their diffusion line) They aren't necessarily the top of the line stuff but they are a very popular brand. No matter what it is you won't have a problem selling it. (and if it's mediumish range let me know wink.gif )
