A few things....

I was thrilled to see this from quite a ways away. Good news: It's recent and has the cord where the tag once was. Bad news: It's a women's coat and I thought they did a lot better than they do. I paid quite a bit for it even though I knew there was some moth damage on the front, now I think that I may have pad waaay too much.

I believe this came from a clothing shop whose owner retired. Not NWT, but I don't think it's been worn. Double breasted cardigan for Burberrys. Wool and very heavy. Take a look at the leather buttons! I wasn't sure how a sweater like that was supposed to be buttoned, so I improvised.

Raffaele Caruso charcoal suit:

The woman that sold me the suit told me to pick out a couple of ties as well, so I chose the "best" ones out of the pile:

Versace V2 Classic:



Gianfranco Ferre:



Football boot cufflinks:



John Smedley Sea Island cotton, long sleeved polo:

Backhouse oiled jacket. I hadn't heard of this company, but it says "a Barbour company." The snaps themselves actually say Barbour. The jacket, however, is actually made in New Zealand. I think it's a riding jacket. It's in pretty beat up shape, so luckily I got it for next to nothing. I don't want to reignite a debate, but what should I do with it. I hate the part at the shoulders and I think I could get it off without a hassle. Should I keep it and try to rewax it or bin it? I thought it might be a women's coat, but it's an S and seems to fit for the most part. I thought I could maybe use it to walk the dog?

No worries, I'm just out of my element with that type of stuff!

If anybody wants a size 18 women's down-filled LL Bean coat for a proxy, let me know.

Still going through all the posts in this thread, having admittedly only read a small percentage so far, so do bear with me!

But I went to a couple of thrift stores yesterday, wondering whether there was any good stuff to be found in Belgium. Doing so I came across this, in my size even so I'm probably keeping it, not sure how much it would make on the bay.
Seems to be fused with non-functional cuffs. The condition is quite nice as well, even though it shows some slight normal signs of wear.

Didn't find much other stuff, hit a consignment store with a bunch of zegna ties and shirts at 20 and 45 EUR respectively, so I guessed it wasn't worth picking them up.

Wow, cool find! It's also nice to see someone else here from Europe...maybe you'll understand the prices that I face smile.gif

That's a standard price for the higher-end consignment stores around here as well. Most of the ties are recent (within the last two years or so) and somewhere between €20-40. Ebay.de/at has much better deals on recent ties.

Not a thrift find but my local useless Marshalls had a really nice RLBL 44R jacket at a great price. I have it listed it in B&S if anyone here is interested!spam[1].gif

No thrifting thanks to the snow, but as long as we're posting snow pics... smile.gif


post #62727 of 121936
I hit 2 places yesterday, and because I was pressed for time, never got to spend the time I normally like to spend. Still, I think I made out pretty good.

Boss wool/cashmere SC, heading for consignment. Still had a dry cleaning tag on it dated 2010.


I currently have a few Pendleton items up on ebay that are getting some interest. So I thought I'd take a chance on another one. This is a wool (woven, not knit) cardigan.


Aran sweater, S or XS. Probably a women's.


True vintage shawl collar wool cardigan with mechanic's style neck. I put this probably late-1950s to early-1960s. Made in Canada and no CA number nor any French to be seen on the tag so definitely pre-mid-1970s.


Burberry Brit knit cardigan/jacket with zipper and buttons. Not a bad piece but a little ostentatious with the buttons and the epaulets.


Not one but two Gloveralls in classic camel.


Prada monk straps. Rubber soles, but I'm sure will have no problem moving on ebay. I'm not sure why this picture is so small...


A bit outside my comfort zone but I got some help from mjt73106 when I was in the field yesterday. Vasque hiking boots, Made in Italy, in 7 1/2.

I've yet to find anything nice there as it's likely the owners know what's 'good' and what isn't, and likely make extra money on the side via EBAY.

Sometimes complaining works. a GW was putting some rubber bands around rolled up ties. Looked really nice when all laid out, but 1) you couldn't see the brand and 2) you couldn't see any snags. I mentioned reason #2 (didn't bring up the brand one) and as of my last visit they had stopped doing it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Would like to procure me one of thoese fabric/snag pullers, too. deets?

Thrift fit with one of the RLPL suits I posted a couple weeks ago. Jacket is a touch snug.
