Wow have you guys pulled in some hauls lately. I only get about one day a week to hit up the shops and haven't been doing anywhere near you guys.
Will I be disowned if I state that I am not the biggest WH fan?
Giant shoutout to los_face. He honestly packs more gifts for my GF than I do throughout the year. Awesome guy to deal and trade with. Hooked me up with a nice RLX athletic jacket and threw in some bonus stuff that will definitely get put to use.
Also, Fueco, are you a giant Sharks fan? For some odd reason, a Marshalls by me had like 5 SJ Sharks scarves for sale. Hockey + Team across the country is an odd item to find its way here. I didn't look at the price but if you want me to proxy, let me know.post #63633 of 1387282/19/13 at 7:08pmQuote:MUUUUUUSSSST REEEEESSSSIIIIIIIIIST BAAAAAATTISSTOOOOOOONNNIIII MMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIZZZZEEEEEEEE!!!Quote:Dibs.Originally Posted by ledbetter
I recently moved to the ventura/oxnard area in Southern California, and I think this place must be the Mecca of Thrift stores. It seems like there is a large and well stocked store on every corner. I'm happy to see nearly every piece of clothing I'm wearing today was acquired at thrift stores.
You just wait. Taking pictures now.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oh, speaking of mainy, shout-out to mainy for these super-dope sneakers, y'all. Click spoilers for winrar.
Theory stealth jacket of $400+ ridiculousness (goodwill)
Undercover $9,000 stealth pants (b&s)
Gucci, lol (mainy)
Apologies to sw&d dudes who already endured thispost #63643 of 1387282/19/13 at 7:57pmHere's the score. No time tonight to spruce it up, or obsess about picture quality so I'm just going to post it.
L to R, top to bottom:
Paul Stuart/Samuelsohn (charcoal gray DB single vent), PRL Corneliani (navy flannel, dual vent, ticket pocket), Paul Stuart/Samuelsohn (navy, single breast, single vent)
Oxxford (navy stripe, single breast, single vent), HF (silver tag, solid navy, single breast single vent)
L to R
Valentino (don't normally brag, but it's Super 120s and is important to gauge volume), Harris Tweed, Paul Stuart blue sport coat (non-orphan.... I think), J Press (absolutely pristine beige cotton suit)
L to R, top to bottom
4 x Zegna shirts (varying age, incl su misura)
5 x Zegna shirts (varying age)
2x Alain Figaret, Ben Silver, J Press, BBGF
CT Sea Island, CT non-iron slim fit
NWOT FU-red HT tie for me
Condition on most of this stuff is OK, though a few have minor issues. Most shirts need a solid soak, the PRL has a manageable hole in the trou, and the Stuart double breasted has a pinhole in the arm.
Passed on so, so, SO much good stuff, either because the damage was even worse or because they were orphaned/reverse orphaned.
But the most demoralizing feeling HAS to be going to one of your semi-regular spots (1x per 2-3 weeks) and seeing the reverse orphan to the orphan you passed last time around, with the orphan nowhere to be found. As I've already observed, I rarely remember something after I leave a store, but this time, it stuck with me: Stuart/Samuelsohn double breasted, ticket pocket, dual vent brown flannel chalk stripe. It was really, really cool. Trou were nowhere to be found. Until today, when the jacket was missing. I know for a fact that this store pulls things out the week after the color goes on sale, and tosses them out. So this is a permanent orphan situation. I'm nauseous again just thinking about it.
Edit: Spoo (or anyone else) - Name the time and place for poker, and I'll be there.post #63644 of 1387282/19/13 at 7:57pmpost #63645 of 1387282/19/13 at 8:03pm
