   Man, if it works PLEASE let me know. Then I can pick up those recent Canali pin-stripe suits I always leave because of the shine..

   I have sold POLO Country belts, belt buckles, lace-ups etc, and for the most part they do very well. I would say if they were in better condition they would do very well.

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.


+1 giving the new comers a chance and to learn is what makes this website a bustling metropolis! I love seeing it grow and learning about where else in the country (and world) you can get for thrift prices! Some of the stuff I see just knocks me off my feet and it's really cool seeing people have fun with the same hobby I love to do.

fight[1].gifyou for the sweater! EDIT: Upon reflection, sweater is a tad too bright for me to pull off. She's all yours.

I've long been an advocate for a welcoming environment. But in our defense, we did give some constructive, polite guidance before finally losing collective patience.

Such a tragic day for the LAPD and for LA in general. To our So-Cal members, please be safe out there!

post #62525 of 124861

As a noob, here's what I do and what I think others should do.

 

1. Read and learn (I'm on like page 50 of the thread, gonna read it all eventually)

 

2. Post hauls. Preferably with cool stuff. 

 

3. Shut the fuck up and repeat steps 1 and 2. 

 

Not much thrifting lately...I'm broke.

Marin? Think i just passed on that same shirt hah. 

post #62527 of 124861
Personally, I think the new posters have really stepped up to the plate. There are a couple guys I have traded with that are pulling in better stuff than I was when I first started on this thread. I know I was stoked when I found Mani a few years ago shog[1].gif

I want.

Weather permitting I'll be back to that place tomorrow.

The PRL pants will be OK, but unless really really nice (those do look nice), I stick to only picking up the Made in Italy pants which are made by Corneliani

It should be noted that not all of us live in Cali either.  So a brag for some of us < a brag for others.

 

For instance if I ever found a Hermes tie then the Kiton pants you guys were just talking about would be mine.

THRIFT ALERT for the north east.

If you so dare, do your damnedest to get out to your spots today...if they are open. The impending snowfall will surely separate the men from the boys. The bounty will be great and the harvest will be plentiful for those who have the balls to go take it. Good luck and be safe.

Is anyone else picturing cap in full military regalia, giving the troops a rousing speech before sending them into certain danger?

Makes me want to skip work and hit the thrifts... not that I need much motivation.

^^ They don't call me Cap'n for nothin'

 

 

Haven't found a whole lot this week, but did pick this up yesterday.

Woah that Gerry is pretty retro.  Don't think I could pull it off personally but i'm sure it will flip well.

 

I keep looking for one of those Rocky Mountain Featherbed vest you got a while back. Those things are nice, would love to find one for myself but i'm not willing to spend the $400-500 for one on Ebay.  I'm betting my chances of finding one ...and in my size are pretty much slim to none.... but hey that worked for the Barbour Beaufort i got a couple months back.  Maybe some more thrifting magic is in store for me. lol

Just don't slap anyone when you're in the trenches.



Thrift fit from yesterday. Winter is the time for tweed and corduroy.
All thrifted or received from SFers, except for the Mr. B's Blake boots which were on sale at Aldo.
