post #62312 of 113106

Don;t usually post my brags on here but made a quick stop on the way home today, didn't find a whole lot except a nice wool pendleton for myself and these other two items.

 

Ralph Edwards USN G-1 Bomber Jacket, appears to be early 70's.  In really nice shape aside from a bit of wear to one arm cuff and also the waist cuff in one area as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and a Vintage Churchill Hat, appears to be tweed.

Has that happened to anyone else? Recognizing someone else's purchase from a thrift store??

A few times on this forum. . . lol8[1].gif

Passed on a goofy pair of orthopedic Aldens this morning that was just listed on the bay. Did find my first Etro and rag & bone though

My question is why "Old Record Guy" cant just look behind him and buy some new clothes?

 

Oh record guy

 

Oh record guy

 

Why dont you retire that 70's attire?

 

Oh record guy

 

Oh record guy

 

I know what you wear was once "FLY" , but now it looks like you are getting ready to "Die."

 

Oh "Old Record Guy"

 

Oh "Old Record Guy"

 

Look at "Old Tie Guy" and at least buy a new Tie.

 

Oh old Record Guy...

 

P.S. I dont know if "Old Record Guy" has made it to Europe yet.

Unfortunately, I need to sell the Kitons in order to finance an upcoming trip, but if anyone is really interested and wants to pay slightly less than Ebay prices, I would be happy to sell here. Sorry for such blatant spamming.

 

 

 

 

OMG! Mind blown!

Depending on price/style, you know, the usual stuff.

No. the reason I'm such a terrible poker player is I forget my "read" on the player 5 minutes after I get up from the table. I suspect this is the same reason I'm terrible with names.
So I can't remember things I spotted in stores after I've left.

Well, I'm not that old, but no matter how I shake and dance, that last drop always ends up in my pants. Do that 2x per wearing, 100 wearings, you're talking 200 drops of pee, and that's enough to turn even the most stalwart lining an unfortunate shade of ecru.
But stained does not equal dirty. Just as dyed do not equal dirty. Dry clean them. And put them on while looking at the ceiling and thinking of England.

Flusser the man was impressive and knew his stuff. Flusser the brand, in its early days -- when he got a name drop in Wall Street -- was similarly impressive. I think a few of us have found that early stuff and liked it. The new stuff is made in China and cut like crap.

2 stops today. Some ebay currency (read: Hugo Boss) and a pass on a 100% Loro Piana cashmere John W Nordstrom SC because it was Made in China. I also picked up a really cool Daks solid navy wool tie for a couple of Washingtons -- the jingly kind. Stunning condition, too. Keeping.

I'm assuming you got suits, no? I'm having a hell of a time ebaying my HB pants. ffffuuuu.gif

Left behind three pieces of recent-ish J Crew outwear (military peacoat-style) for $25, all sized large. If any LA regulars are interested I can let you know where.

 

I did pick up some Barbour and Filson though...
