A few thrifts from today:

Irish Tweed hat that fits my large 7 1/2" noggin:


To wear with:
Orvis Cord jacket w/ patch pockets, 3/2 button stance, and deep inside pockets (can fit my hand + about 3" past my wrist in them!)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just joking, it's too big for me (42R) and tentatively available.

And a Hickey-Freeman for Bobby Jones 100% Linen w/ MOP buttons size Large - Available

Found a few things today. I have a bad feeling I missed more mint, recent BB suits. The guy donated a ton of recent, mint condition slim fit BB shirts (17-34) and I have a feeling he had donated more than one suit. By the time I had gotten there everything had been put away and the suit was on the very end of the rack looking like the jacket had been tried on but put back. At least I found the one....

Herters duck camo slim leg trousers (keep)





Another Filson hat. This one fits my big head. (keep)





Awesome men's Merimekko shirt. Metal buttons. Size 42 Available





Recent BB 1818 Madison suit. Gray pinstripe. 2 Btn. Single vent. Mint condition.Tagged 42 R, 36 W. Available







Mint Prada black sneakers. 9 1/2 D Available

I don't snowshoe, snowboard, etc but I'll make a compilation of photos this summer.  I think there are mountains nearby Denver?

Rochester area? I've been down here several times within the past few years as my wife had some big confrences at the Mayo Clinic and had to spend the night so I came along for the ride and to do some thrifting. High profile doctors + good salaries = nice clothes, right? Wrong. I think we hit 5 thrifts down there and nothing. Well, no. Come to think of it I did find one thing on one trip. A cool Polo RL D/B 40's style herringbone suit. Other than that, the last thrift I had found something at was on the outskirts of the TC.

Hudson Bay, huh? I've been passing on their jeans. Did a quick eBay search and didn't find much information on pants...Anyone has experiences selling those?

post #62831 of 113221
Quick question for those in the know...

I have a bottle of vintage perfume that I want to sell on the ebay. It seems to do quite well. However, USPS says on their site that perfumes are restricted items.

So, anyone have experience shipping (domestic US only) perfume? What's the best bet? Feel free to PM me. Danke in advance.

Hit up one thrift down in OC today... Nada.

Left this fellow behind

 

Did get to the TJMaxx that had RL bags and these were what's left, already through round 1 of markdowns:

RL BAGS (Click to show)

Lightweight tote type with leather closure, down to $52

 

RLX at $99

 

Clockwise from top left Green buff was I think somewhere around $130? Bigger OD bag was $160ish Navy bag was around $100 I think... Strange multicolored totes behind were under $100. Not shown, a bigger green buffalo bag around $160. No tweedy birds to be found.


Left em all.

 

Marshalls action included these which were originally marked $5. I was going to try one pair but when they marked them down, I bought all 3, left behind a salmon pair.

3 buck panthers... What is this world coming to?

 

No cashmere, Brioni, or Kiton at either shop, but I did grab this chap

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Black, unlike what the pics show... Should be able to make something on it hopefully...

Does anyone recognize this print? I thrifted this shirt for my son. The tag was cut out and there's no info anywhere on the t-shirt.
He keeping it because he thinks it's hilarious but I'm really just wondering what the writing says.
