Probably a dozen shirts, mostly casual-ish and trendy, all $149. A couple cashmere blend turtlenecks. A couple other sweaters.

Also the weirdest damn thing I've seen.... A black RLBL polyester blazer that was puffy but not quilted with pick stitching around the lapels. Made in Italy. There was no Marshall's tag, but the retail price was $895.

I was deeply tempted by a pair of Bally red velvet formal slippers. The $99 price and fact that they were a half size too small (9.5) kept me from kopping. Pretty cool to see and I was tempted by a Tom Haverford moment.

Interestingly the only Zegna thing I saw was a decent shirt at TJ Maxx for $69... Also the only thing worth looking at at TJX

Here's the stuff I kopped for me..

Brown cashmere tie from Wilkes Bashford SF. How this got up here I have no idea, but it's SOOO soft and thick.

And this might be my favorite tie of all time... and a popped cherry for me.

It says linen but feels like cashmere. Love these colors and the thickness of this thing.

WOW!!!!! One of my favorite ties posted on here by a mile! Good score, I would wear the hell out of that. The only piece of Issia I've ever comes across was also a 7 fold. If my memory serves me correctly, it went to the Capt. in a trade.

I dont know, but there's an elite club of Robert Graham shirt collectors out there. I read an article on it and one dude owns over 200 Robert Graham shirt and even had Robert Graham officially design one dedicated to his daughter. I bet its even worse to have a Skeet Blanket out there with your daughter's name.

 

The article also sheds light on the designer. a 60+ yr old man we pass on all the time at the thrifts. Robert Stock.

I should be pick up all Robert Stock stuff from now on and market it on the bay as "PRE-ROBERT GRAHAM!!"

Some blazers/sportcoats that I recently picked up:

 

The first two are from the same donor.  These were clearly MTO or bespoke pieces with crazy details--he had more, but the other ones had damaged lining and some pretty wild lapels.

 

The first is a double-breasted navy blazer.  It's from 1969, but it checks off many boxes--double-vented, fully-canvassed, partially lined.  Note all the details, though--wild lining, hacking pockets, ticket pocket, and single-button turnup cuffs with functional buttonholes.  It's also a 3-roll-2--on a double-breasted coat.  It measures to roughly a 38S, so it's available.

1000

 

 

 

 

It does need some re-sewing on one of the sleeves (no damage, just stitching that has come undone):

 

 

The second is a single-breasted brown blazer.  This one is from 1980, made by a Hong Kong tailor, double-vented and fully-canvassed.  Note again the hacking pockets, ticket pocket, and single-button turnup cuffs with functional buttonholes.  It measures to roughly a 38S, so it's available.

The next one is a vintage Hickey Freeman sportcoat--mostly I picked it up because I've never seen one with functional buttonholes.  It's a 39S and available--if no one wants it, I'll probably harvest the buttons on this one.  Needs some re-sewing in some parts as well.

The last one is a Zegna 15 MilMil 15 Australian wool herringbone sportcoat in a 40S (EU 50C, with very short sleeves, unfortunately), so available.  It's not an orphan, the tag reads "jacket."  Double-vented, in a midnight blue, with subtle pick-stitching.

Yes indeed, the infamous "Chocolate Suede Alden Trade".

The thrift gods smiled down on me today for my early morning persistence. Super minty Barbour Liddesdale in my size for $6!!!!!!!! Been on the hunt for one of these since I started thrifting. Check another one of the list!

Sweet EZ size 16/41 available for cost plus shipping. It was cheap and I thought someone on here might want it. If not, to the bay'.

And then, this piece of awesomeness. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
AppleMark
Completely mint, Andover Clothes (I'm not sure if they are related to the Andover Shop, I need to do some research) heavy charcoal wool suit. Tag says 1941/2, so possibly the year it was made? Either way it old and how it survived this long without any moth damage is beyond me. 3 button, 1 button cuffs, vented with slim lapels and minimal shoulder padding. Trousers are cuffed with double pleats and an interesting coin pocket. Lots of hand work on this one. I'm really bummed this doesn't fit. Size 40, about 34/30 and available.

Well then I guess I should leave.  I disagree with you completely.  On all counts.  Unless a garment is being handmade, the process is pretty much the exact same everywhere in the world.  Quality Control may differ, but the end garment is largely the same.

OK, deal.  Hopeing this gets be ban because if you post reflects the general sentiment of everyone on this board then I should have never come here.

 

Fuck off.

Nope. I got out in '91, but I was a year ahead.

I think you're taking this way too seriously and personally bro.  I won't say anything more so as not to incite another multi-page distraction.  Just relax and enjoy the finds man.

Those are both awesome, especially that suit (edit) which is apparently not Andover Shop, but is still rad.
