I picked this up down the street at a shop called International Silks and Woolens. It's a fabric/textile shop that caters to the film/theater industry. I actually went in to see if they had a woven wool similar to one of my grandfather's ties that I have (solid black medium/fine woven wool from Scotland). They didn't. They did point me to an area of silks that pretty much look like they were made for ties... Been contemplating trying to make a few (with all that spare time I've got haha). I was there near closing and had somewhere else to go, but oh god, they had all sorts of fabric that would make sick jackets

 

Anyway, I could go grab a bunch of them and mail them out... But it might make more sense to hunt them down at fabric shops on your own. Google "snag repair needle" and you'll find them. I'd imagine most bigger shops have something like that. I went in to get pins for pinning things to my mannequin, and also grabbed the snag needle, a thread trimmer, and a sweater/piling repair comb thingy. Figured those three would make for a good "flippers repair kit" that I could use to tune garments up before sending them out. Thread trimmer is great for cleaning up button holes and fraying tags... Overall more accurate than a scissor, and will stay sharper longer because you aren't using it to cut everything.

 

TL;DR- Google snag repair needle.

I know there is a fake/real thread, but anyone here have an eye for vintage Gucci? No content tag and the words on the red are "mirrored" and in German. Doesn't add up to me, but thought I'd ask...

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.

Just sold a pair for the second time (1st buyer returned the at a 50% refund due to not fitting correctly) today. Sold for $127 the first time and $130 now but it is the ONLY pair I've picked up... maybe passed 10-15 not worth my time. They dont flip well usually.

Too tired to post pics so I'll just post old-skool text-like.  Hit a couple TJX, Goodwills, and a honey hole.  Spent 10 hours driving & shopping.  The take-home:

- Two PRL 100% silk sweaters, NWT.

- One pair BB 1818 Madison dress trousers, NWT.

- One pair PRL Preston corduroy pants, NWT.

- One 'luxe Canali 3/4 length quilted jacket, made in Italy.

- One Audi R8 jacket, like new, dealer item.

- One Barbour Zenith waxed cotton jacket, zero flaws found.

- One Pal Zileri sport coat, Italy.

- One Corneliani silk / wool sport coat, Italy (gotta price brag this one - six bucks!)

- One Barneys New York sort of motorcycle jacket-style coat.

- One PRL bi-swing jacket, NWT.

- One VV sweater vest, NWT.

- One RLBL shirt, NWT, Italy.

- One Peter Millar cashmere blend sweater, NWT.

- One BB pincord multi-color stripe sport coat.

- One BB silk / wool sport coat, Italy.

- One Samuelsohn sport coat.

- One PRL linen/cotton vest, NWT.

- Two Spiewak coats (Golden Fleece, and I. Spiewak & Sons).

- Couple other thingies. . . .

 

...local TJX's were having super-clearance - selling for ~10% of original retail price.  RLBL Italy shirts tagged $365, clearance at $39 - stuff like that.  Sick.

  

Might keep the Barbour for myself - my size, and while I've come across a fair number of them lately, this is the first with zero issues / wear.  All the rest NA - destined for eBay.

Why didnt you buy every RLBL at $40 each. Thats easy $$$$$$$$ Any 14.5's???

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

 

This is really cool. What size?

Walk of shame thrift shopping edition...

 

Dropped by a store this morning and saw this beast

What the what (Click to show)

Had to search for the other tags because this is the first time I've seen an MM tag like this.

 

Not shown: Made in Italy and Size 40 tags.

Didn't kop because...

Dude come on (Click to show)

ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif. Nothing like a shop that knows what it's got. Plus, it was going to need a thorough $20+ dry cleaning too. Felt pretty sick though, snaps/buttons were a really cool design, lots of pockets.

I can't tell by that photo, but I remember your other photo and they looked like croc. Now, whether they're actually croc or not, I'll admit that I'm not an expert. I own a couple of pairs, but nothing in black.

By the way, thank you for posting in a manner that makes it easy to quote/remove unnecessary information icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dug out.

Am I a bad person if I went to local SA at 2pm Friday and was PO'd they'd closed so early I couldn't get one more rip through the racks? They canceled school and everything Friday...but there was, like 2" of snow on the ground when school would have let out. Babies. Heh.

Spoo, you have a cutie there!

My little girl standing next to 27" drift up to her elbows, that's a yardstick she's holding, she wanted to see how deep the snow was.

AppleMark

Pros, help me out. I have this jacket, Sartoria Italiana, whatever. Not great, not the worst.

AppleMark

Labels -- note the drycleaning or whatever makes the formerly white tag indecipherable:
AppleMark
AppleMark
AppleMark

How can you tell from the markings or the feel if it's cashmere or cashmere blend? I vaguely remember this coming up before and the answer was "you can't tell for sure," but is there any "tell"?
