Found these at a Marshall's not far. Passed on them (too warm for down here...) but can go back and proxy if someone wants.

LB tagged EU 48 Flannel unhemmed pleated and change pocket.

In other words, I can't lose. That thrift fit at the top of Mont Blanc will rule them all...

Headed coast to coast to St Catalina Island for my wife's birthday in about 5 weeks.....might have to do a fit there. Boats and Hoes!

Things really dried up for me this weekend.  Hit up six stores, bought only a single item, a tie.  And the tie wasn't even all that great, I mostly picked it up for its novelty factor:

Bullock & Jones butterfly tie, made in Germany

 

Some recent finds (not from the weekend) follow:

I have also picked up a bunch of streetwear over the past couple of weeks.  I suspect it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea in here (and probably not SF-approved), so I spoilered the whole thing.

I am a proverbial noob mind you...two weeks ago when in a thrift store I saw a well dressed man telling his friends what to buy and what not to buy. After talking with him about my interest in the thrift, he mentioned this website. I found 5 ben silver ties, and gave him two.  I forgot your name but thanks bud.  I hope to learn, thanks

 

 

two BB, the top made in US

BB made in US

Paul Stuart, too old school?

 

 

two robert talbott both 15.5

Hamilton 1

hamilton 2

a close up of the pattern

 

Theory pink stripes

The Hamilton shirts are very good quality, I have another bought brought it to the tailor the design was so great. 25 to get it taken in...too much?

 

I also got 1 z zegna suit, 1 PRL italy Jacket, 1 Paul Stuart jacket, and 1 H Freeman jacket. I can post them when I photo them.  Where do you get the sowing busts btw?

That's gross dude - you need to rotate a little more often than that.

Pretty good haul! I spotted a 7 fold RLPL at a TJ Maxx, but they wanted $200 for it baldy[1].gif

Regarding the Pantherellas: I love the OTC Pantherellas I got off eBay. The only Pantherellas I've found at TJ Maxx/Marshalls, though, have been mid (or slightly lower) calf, which I can't stand. I constantly feel like I need to pull them up.

Anyone else working on a punch list of clothing for friends/family?

I knocked off a complete outfit today for a brother in law who is a former truck driver and is seeking to establish himself in a new business. He needs to look professional.


  • Jack Victor navy w/ light blue mini pinstriped, super recent, half canvassed, dual vented, high gorged, flat fronted 42L. (He's 6'2")
  • Brooks Brothers blue, spread collar, slim fit, non iron dress shirt.
  • Façonnable tan/blue/white silk/cotton tie.

The whole rig was $30 US. The barstards had tossed a $25 "boutique" tag on what should have been a $15 suit but it's so nice, I couldn't complain. confused.gif

I also found this (not pink, regardless of how the pic came out) tasty bit of Lands' End in my size! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif



And it's washable. bounce2.gif
