post #62686 of 103033

Saw RL bags at an OC TJX... All they had were the wool buffalo check bags in green or red. Same pricing, though there were some larger bags as well. Definite tweed envy over here.

 

Picked up this cool little tool the other day.

It's a needle for fixing pulls in fabrics. The knurled end grabs the thread as you push it back through the original hole and it pulls it down into place.  Thought it was pretty cool, works like a charm.

People on here are some of the finest! fing02%5B1%5D.gif

Same here. I just bought an engagement ring a couple weeks ago and the knowledge I've taken away from this thread and its regular posters helped me pay for it. Anyone looking for jewelry hit up in stitches (user name is "in stitches"), he's a gent and did a great job with getting me a fantastic ring.

That would be interesting. Would this then be the gateway thread to B&S?

...I managed to thrift my way to a down payment for a house over the summer (only 3% down, but still).  Working toward the garage remodel now.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Recent grabs...

 

This one's more of a pure green, not so teal...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

These brass signature buttons are so, so tasty.

 

This shell/outer was barely used, looks like it was forgotten in someone's closet. Available for trade to my thrift thread brethren, while I could use the profit more, I could use some karma probably almost as bad. Then again if the outerwear powers that be say this is worth the flip... rotflmao.gif

 

Then there's this guy

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Dual vent, feels awesome... 40R- P2P of 21

I guess I need to get my contact lens prescription checked... Missed two holes on the outside of the sleeve that I just now found. If anyone here digs it enough to take on the repairs, I can send your way at cost otherwise I'm returning it.

 

This one is clean though... Sorry for the crap pic.

Those guys

 

For this guy

 

Workin deets

 

Stitch details on the dual vent tail

 

 

Boring tags

 

This thing feels amazing... Build quality is tits.

I don't always pick up Mezlan...but when I do...Genuine Lizard in legit NWOB condition.

I got some gray ones laying around my stash somewhere.....size 13 though if I recall. Flippable? I only got them to try and be a pimp clown a couple years ago since my feet are so small. Well made if I remember.

Is that Huntsman flannel?  That thing is nasty.

It's wool, it's soft... I guess that's a yes?

 

Same donor had another CB there, but it was an odd pinstriped orph that showed its age. This houndstooth is much more of a timeless piece in comparison. Donor also had several Zegna coats that were older than I've ever seen. Came across the one I picked up first, and I think I let out an audible "aw fuck". I had already looked over the rest of the store and was pretty much content in not picking anything up (my wallet agreed) and when I saw this I knew I had to look at the rest of the coats.

High Retail on Mezlan, seems like you have to be pretty picky on what you pick up though to flip.  These should flip easily, but I also left at least 2 other pairs of used, pretty plain Mezlans today.

I went to a local Marshall's to proxy a pair of pants for a homie. Got there, wasn't there. Gone! baldy[1].gifI hid it in the big boy's section.

 

Anyhow, but my day got better cuz I found another Billy Reid french cuff shirt for $15. Recent too! June of 2010! It's about 44, I think. Got home and found a tiny hole near the collar where the damn tag was. FML! ffffuuuu.gifAnyhow, anyone wants it for cost + shipping? PM me for deets.

Walked around and found a NWT VV tie for $7. Found 2 more for $15 a piece. Talked to the manager and convinced her to sell all 3 to me for $7 a piece! The power of persuasion! I really like these. Gonna keep these for my collection.
