post #63436 of 117933
I came across a short sleeve seersucker shirt today with this label in it. I almost left if due to a light case of RATC but after googling it instore, it's currently in a bucket of very hot water with Dawn and hydrogen peroxide until tomorrow morning. It was half price on the yellow tagged stuff and my, my...is that a yellow tag? Here's my $2.50!

It's marked XL but I think it's been seriously shrunk because it's fitting like a medium. Looks like original retail was just north of $200 US.

This is the second time I've seen this exact shirt pop up in here, not counting the time I found one.

I like how you picture the shirt.

More or less this. I've seen some pretty cool stuff from that collaboration, but a lot of it is basics of meh quality at slightly higher than reasonable prices. A lot more Fred Perry than Raf Simons.

 

I picked up one of the polos on Yoox last year because it was cheap and I needed a new polo. Found it to be kind of crap, and a button fell off after my second wear.

Quality looks OK...on par with brooks brothers I would say. Nothing crazy but still first Raf anything in a thrift for me. Retail was about $200 it looks like.

I know they are just Nudies, but I just needed a pair of raw blue selvedge denim since all my others have crotch rips...

Great find, never seen selvage Nudies before.

vintage RCA Victor Victrola with the innards gone. Don't know what I am going to do with it, but for $50, I couldn't go wrong.

Line with cedar, seal it well, and a few other steps......humidor.

Oh yeah don't get me wrong, it's still pretty cool to find at a thrift and will probably flip relatively well, just not the big Raf dollas. 

 

And since I've been doing a whole lotta talking about other folks' finds, here are a couple of my own from the past week, both cherry poppers:

 

 

Chester Barrie sport coat, must be pretty old as it was made for a Toronto men's store I can't find anything about online.

 

AppleMark

 

Zanella 'flat front' brown trousers

 

Not pictured... Z Zegna and Club Monaco SCs for me, at the cleaners but you don't want to see them anyway.

Nice find at that price. Nudies at the Rack here are $80. I did see a pair of Billy Reid khakis there for $25—but too small for me. Filson down vests too for $39.

One store, one trip...

Uniqlo, Brooks Brothers, Filson (my first!), Orvis, Patagonia. I'm keeping the Patagonia and BB. Others available (Uniqlo is a large fleece, Filson is XL thick wool shirt, and Orvis is an XL fleece shirt).

Is this what I'm hoping it is? If it is, I'd love to know the story of how it ended up in Columbus, Ohio.

Awesome haul. I love finding Etro jackets, you can spot that lining from 20 paces. I also like Seaward & Stern stuff. I had someone proxy a pocket square from Barneys' sale and I've since ordered a few things by them.

I had never seen that and was crying as I watched it! Thanks!

I own no selvedge and would love to get my hands on some of these as I know the fits better than some of the big denim players!

Yep, pants as well. I doubt I'll ever see RL purple label in Columbus, so I was pretty excited.
