Etro coat that I found last summer and finally had tailored. I usually wear a s-m and this was originally an XXL!!!! Had the sleeves taken in at the shoulders by about 5 inches and the entire body taken in a bunch. She did a really great job, I can't even tell there was any work done to it. I might take it back to have the skirt area taken in a little more, or not, I haven't decided.

2 pairs of The West is Dead NWT for me. Raw Selvage and Coal Dust Selvage. I already own the Work Rise in Raw Selvage in a size 34 and they were horribly big. But these are nice and slim on the legs but around the waist it fits weird. They gap up on the waist at the back. Maybe my ass is too big? I tried one size down from these and they were pretty damn tight, but im assuming theyre gonna stretch right? Where my elite SW&D heads at?

I bought a pair of work is rise  before and when i first put them on it was tight but now loosened up. Also you can see the color fade from the thigh and butt area wear it streched. probably same thing for these! I would keep em and get the sick fadez

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I had tried on the jacket once or twice, but after wearing it and seeing the pic, I could let sleeves out some.

 

Or you can just wear shirts with shorter sleeves. biggrin.gif

Dude, I say keep it! You might want to dress up like a J Crew tool once in a while. If not, you can always send it to me. mwink[1].gif

Ok. As a few of you know, I wasnt big on shoes before. But since my John Lobb find last year, ive stepped up my efforts and have looked more. Today I found these. They popped my cherry. First "....for Brooks Brothers" shoes. I knew they were Cordovan right off the bat. I've trained myself well and can now tell them just by looking at pics. Woot Woot.

 

 Im having problems identifying the maker. Ive looked at many listings on the 'bay and none them have the V-Cleat. Rares or Garbage?

 

Brooks English by Brooks Brother's Cordovan Leather Wingtip Balmorals with V-Cleat...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah, they should stretch after you break them in. I think it's safe to assume they will stretch around an inch or so. I really enjoy these. I've been wearing mine since last week.

Dropped in at the local Marshall's for about 30 minutes before dinner to see if I can find another Billy Reid shirt in the clearance section. Sure enough!

I've actually been passing this shirt 3 times due to the label being faded. This time, I did a double take and kinda made out Billy Reid on the label. I had to ask my gf to verify. She couldn't see. So I went to the register to ask them to check in the system. Nope. Nada. Anyhow, I tired it on and it felt ok. It's a little tight due to all the bench press and push ups I've been doing. Anyhow, went home, jumped on https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/textilern/wrnquery$tts_rn.queryview?P_RN_TYPE=RN&P_RN_SEQ=113814&Z_CHK=6100 and sure enough, Billy Reid! Ya!

 

And here's what I had for dinner! 12 oz. rib eye! Yum!

ok, i' asking the thrift gods for help. i have found a heap of denim.  mostly size 29.  but what i am asking is.... what is it about numbering on levi's big E's ???

Big E - check, red line selvedge - check. worth picking up?  i don't know.   are 502's better than 501's ?   age? 

i think they are still making them, might be wrong. =not old.

what do i need to look at?. because i'm not buying a lot of stuff to flip. too time consuming.  but if some are good, i'll get them. they are about $50-$70 each.

 

might ebay some iron hearts in a few weeks though, the internet says so. an easy double.

I'll admit that I often miss huge chunks of this thread and may have been absent if this Alden logo has been previously discussed but it's kind of funny how suddenly, something pops up on the radar only to be followed by a bunch more blips! The thrift world is a mysterious place. satisfied.gif

100% good pickup. Thats mainline which I never pass on in good condition. JV Star USA even sells decent, although the quality is on part with Banana / JCrew IMO. Plus that jacket is awesome either way.

WTF...there would have been hell to pay if they pulled that crap. As mentioned, unless they are calling you a thief for switching the tags and calling the cops on you, they better damn sell it for the listed price. I'd bet my last dollar that went home with an employee for $50 that night.

You were Class of '01? I always assumed you were older than me ('97) for some reason.

Not sure how my youtube rabbit trail let me here this morning, but this is kinda cool. A TRUE dinner jacket.

Excuse me?  Are you suggesting that people who wear J Crew clothing are tools?  If so, then I suggest you continue deleting your account as you have claimed that you intend to do.  There is no place in this thread to insult people by the clothes they wear (we wear 2nd/3rd/4th hand clothing and like it for goodness sake).  If you want to be part of that crowd, go to the good taste thread.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, I like J Crew :(
