post #62491 of 114507

Ok guys, i've been perpetually catching up on 500+ posts for forever, so its my forseeable project for tonight, as i get shwasted. Buuuuut, Wes, A) you've always said that you never found Brioni, or Bills, seems like you've remedied that (also, Pork incoming once I talk to the souce, my grandma! lol) AND Dustinmyself has snagged like 3x decent shoes, and an italian Valet... you're slackin on your mackin stefano ricci and all. Also, a very, very belated comment to the cant thrift a wardrobe argument... thats just BS. I rock rag and bone, unicorns, and incotex khakis, hamilton custom solid shirts brioni borrelli et al, and i've found solid charcoal oxxford in my size (not terribly dated haters) and a dope ass chester barrier charcoal flannel that I wore TODAY, with a sick su misura basic blue with white graph check FC shirt. If you can't build a staple wardrobe via trading here, and finding shit you need to up your grind game.

If it works I would probably take a chance on it. Selling it separately would be the optimal way to maximize your return, but it may take some time to move. Check it out prior to purchase.

I'd pass on that B&O at that price Mainy. Too expensive to flip comfortably, and not ideal for personal use as the stylus costs $400+ on those. Found out the hard way when I paid 75 for a Beogram turntable and went to buy a new stylus for it.

Picked up a couple things from Marshalls that are likely going to go to the bay, but if anyone's interested in a trade let me know.

 

Polo Distressed Denim Blazer 40 (tagged 40L but doesn't seem Long to me) with functioning button cuffs.

You may want to rephrase your question.

Ok, im going to manually go back another 40 fucking pages for this... I've seen you post one great haul, thats it, no other hauls great or otherwise, the rest of your hauls are just bitching about what other people post, some of which isn't bad at all (vtg eddie bauer and other underappreciated stuff). While lurking and occassionally posting baller finds is all and well, making 90% of your sporadic posts just to bitch at other people is uncouth to say the least. :end rant: Sorry, ill be the first to jump on some asshole, but im not about to jump on someone who doesn't know wtf they're doing AND trying to learn as he is. He's doing his best, and looking for advice, that's WTF we're here for IMHO. Will I look through some straight bullshit so that we can develop another contributing member of the thread? HELL YES. Im sure we can all agree, we've gotten much better at this over time, and that some of our most valued pieces have come from this thread. I've had people from this thread help me with various facets OF MY LIFE, let alone clothing, if we didn't try to nurture a cordial environment then everyone would be stuck with their own finds and we would all be more poorly dressed. If we all acted like you, we might very well have no Ian (STOKED for your NWOT dries van noten) , no barrel who is always willing to help a brotha out, and most of all NO DM7. So kiss my fucking ass, teaching and being somewhat patient is different than being an asshole and stifling any newcomer.

If you've got a problem with my statement, again, suck it, I think most around here would agree that I do my best to help anyone, and have contributed some pretty goddamned cool pieces of clothing to various wardrobes ( i might not ship on time though, but i will never, ever fuck you over).

PS to everyone else, i know this is old, but im catching up... and the whiskey is getting to me, in that fighting mood, even though im listening to Van morrison.

Yep, you've got that wrong. Jack Victor is a manufacturer. They also make the "Made in Canada" Saks Fifth Avenue branded suits and sport coats that are sold in Off 5th.

A few recent pick ups for myself. Have a bunch for the bay and trade but haven't taken pics yet.

Pal Zileri linen button down. Fits like a glove and will be nice and breezy once patio weather hits.
AppleMark

There have been a couple epic tie hauls recently but I'll settle for these for now
Paisley Burberry, horsebit SF, fish Italo Ferretti (makes Brioni ties I believe), Zegna



Passed on some Raichle hiking boots a month or 2 back because they didn't fit and didn't realize there was a market for em. Have been looking for some solid vintage hiking boots ever since.
Tyrol hiking boots in my size with those dirty red laces
AppleMark
These things are beasts, thick leather, heavy vibram lug soles. They weigh like 5lbs each...pure awesome!
Couldn't find much info on em but i think they were made in Europe for the Canadian market for 50 years or so then went out of business in the early 80s.
AppleMark

Hanna Hats donnegal tweed patchwork cap. This thing is a beaut and the website says that each patchwork piece is different as they just use whatever scaps fits to make it work.

AppleMark


And in case my cap gets lonely, I got her a friend
AppleMark
Full canvas, 3/4 lined Crombie tweed by Freedman SC for the spring
AppleMark
She's missing some of her cuff buttons but that should be an easy swap out and will be closing up the center vent

I knew it was either Kiton or Brioni. I passed on it. It was dated. Lower end of conservative gorge, unvented and jetted pockets. Most likely an orphan. Small stain on the lapel. First Brioni seen in the wild but it broke my heart to see it in such a sad state.

Awaiting surgery now to put my leg back together.  Already had a few people say, "Hope you like sweat pants!" Oh boy. Keep them finds rocking boys, I'll be experiencing the thrill of the hunt by proxy for a bit.

I am very sorry to hear this, and I hope you are on the mend soon!

I want.

Shit, I know that feeling all to well. Wait a year until they can really articulate how pissed they are to be there.

+30000 I was probably one of the worst (in terms of sheer dickness and arrogance and spam) noobs and I didn't really get flamed that much (except for some cart kicking and mexi action) if I just quit I would never have learned 1/100 of what I have learned here and a few of you would be missing out on some (I like to think) cool items I have hooked you up with. also +1000 on the barrel comment dude is probably my most solid homie on the forum icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif also thanks on the dries van noten compliment I feel like that got almost no reaction, I mean shit everything was still sewn shut and it is a damn high fashion tux jacket and I found it in the worst thrift in my area...

I am 99% certain JV does their own suits. I picked up another suit brand once with same label, looked up RN and it showed up as JV. So, I think they do their own stuff and make for others too. I can't think of the other brand off the top of my head right now though...

What would you do? Say you find a staple Kiton suit in your size, two years old, barely worn—but obviously someone took a dump in it. Automatic pass? Or send it to Rave Fabricare and tell them to nuke it?

By the way, the only Kiton suit I ever found I did pass on. Staple navy, but it looked like it had been run over by a truck. Absolutely useless condition.
