No Saturday delivery/pickup would suck.

These are the super crispy kind.

 

And my retail denim is supposedly on its way.

It's the kind you should avoid coping in the future due to it being an orphan.

I would just soak them. I just soaked and dried my West is Dead selvedge. Took 2 days to dry with minimal indigo loss. My 22 oz. elephant 2 took 4 days to dry! ffffuuuu.gif

I wash my denim in the washing machine with cold water and air dry them. Seems to work pretty well on the relatively normal stuff (the jeans I have are like 3% spandex). Hopefully I'll find some good stuff some time soon to try out. cool.gif

 

That sounds like a PITA... I just don't wash my raw denim

Today was so close to my best thrifting day ever, but frustratingly no. Clearly some my-sized (all 18 or 17.5) guy with solid taste just died (or redid his wardrobe or whatever). Literally 20 Zegnas, and another 8-10 Canalis and Brionis. But almost all of them were marked up to $25. Grabbed a quick taste though:



Not available. Hilariously enough, despite ranges of markups ($9, $12, $25), the Borelli was the only one from this guy at their regular shirt price.

Surprising amount of good-enough-to-think-about stuff. Kilgour jacket, couple peak lapel DB suits (Boss, Armani Collezoni)... Anyone know the quality of Hart Schaffner Marx Traveler suits? Fabric felt nice, would've taken a shot if it was my size.

Hit three stores and nothing. ffffuuuu.gif

Passed on a couple old Zegna suits with holes on the sleeves.

I did find this new-in-box (but old - offer for a free fryer basket on the front expired May of 1978) Fry Baby. I've been looking for a deep fryer, so at least something was accomplished today.



Also found this NWT purple wool/cashmere blend flag sweater from Benjamin Bixby w/ elbow patches. XL Available

Fishy went thrifting again...

 

Once again I'm way behind on stuff so I can't post everything, but here are a couple things that I really want to get out there.

 

 

I'd just like to put this one out there. Hopefully it won't be considered an ad, because I'm making no money on it, I just figured someone would love to have this, even though it's a fixer-upper.

 

44Ls report in!

 

UP FOR ADOPTION: Amazeballs Corneliani sport coat that will need a bit of reweaving work 

 

P2P 22.5

Sleeves 25.5

Waist 21.5

TGL: 34

Shoulder 20

Unvented

I originally picked this guy up to sell- somehow I managed to miss the two moth holes. ffffuuuu.gif One is on the inside of a sleeve, the other the inside of the jacket.

 

However, this piece is absolutely gorgeous, and I really don't want to see it go to waste! Great wool, functional cuffs, general sweetness. If you want it, it's yours for cost + shipping, just PM me. I know somebody here will love this guy to death. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, now on to the regular old "available"s.

 

Sweet ass Southwick suit, sz 40! Vintage with some repairs for a popped seam in the sleeve, but sweet pattern!

Measurements are all in inches.

 

 

P2P 20.5

Shoulders 17.5

Waist 19.5

Sleeves 24

Trouser waist: 31

(FLAT FRONT)

Trouser inseam 30 with 2 to work with

Trouser width at leg opening 9

 

 

 

 

 

 

Equally gorgeous vintage BB  lavender and yellow micro houndstooth check shirt. (16C32S) Tiny discoloration at the bottom- waaaaay beyond the area that’s tucked in and hardly even noticeable besides (I didn't see it till I was taking pictures)

Collar 16

Sleeves: 32

TGL 33

P2P: 24

Shoulders: 19

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NWT BBM tie with a classic amazing pattern anyone? A bit lighter than it looks in the pic. Tiny thread pull in the tied area of the tie, so it'll never be seen. 3.5 at widest.

Absurdly awesome MacAlan cashmere sweater, size L, made in Scotland. Thickest cashmere I've ever felt. I was SOOOO sure something would be wrong with it, but it's PERFECT. Like I shined a 700-lumen flashlight up on it full-blast to check for holes and it's opaque everywhere! Awesomesauce :)
