Well, maybe the finds will get some respect at least.

First thing to say is: Met up with GM-H. Super nice dude. Had a great time watching him find all the cool stuff I breezed past! lol8[1].gif And then be nice enough to give it to me!! So most of this stuff is either directly or indirectly attributable to him -- either because he found it, or because he was my good luck charm.

As usual, let's start small:

Tee shirt:

But, eeeew, GMMcL, who buys tee shirts at a thrift?
Yeah, here's why (Click to show)

Accessories: For me (Click to show)
HF raw silk (looks and feel like wool), PRL Made in Italy, but for the tags I'd swear this was RLPL. Keeper is thick and attached horizontally at the sides.

Could it happen 2 weeks in a row? (Click to show)
Yes, yes it can.
Now, before you get too excited, I dropped a LOT of coin on this one. Consignment find, not thrift.

Shirts: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Mostly in the 16 range except the RRL, which is 15, and temporarily dibsed. Others are available.

Sweater: Keeping. A few moth snacks buried in there, but the weave disguises them nicely. Even if I got them rewoven, it'd still be an awesome deal based on what I paid. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

42R. Fit. Me. Like. A. Glove. (Ask GM-H). NOT AVAILABLE.
I spent Soooooooo much money on these. But they're on my bucket list, so, there's that.

Oh, also, thrift fit. Unlikely to be as well received as Monday's, but it was cold and inclement, and I rocked the hell out of this Anderson & Sheppard CORDUROY suit.

GMMcL, OUT!

Wow! That is quite the haul! Not one, but two Kiton suits and a Hermes scarf, not to mention all that other cool stuff?! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Love the fit, too. Great to see that awesome A&S suit in action!
post #64682 of 102600
Freaking boss! Kitonx2 in your size has to be rarer than anything. Well done
post #64683 of 102600
Actually, I like this much better than the one you posted the other day. shog[1].gifpeepwall[1].gifnod[1].gifbiggrin.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif That suit is fucking sick, homeboy.
post #64684 of 102600
Thanks, dudes.

DID YOU SEE THE CONTENT TAGS?? WOOL AND CASHMERE!! (or is that standard for Kiton?)

Edit: True story, when I was trying to talk the consignment store owner off her exorbitant price, she goes: Those went out recently. There were 8 of them originally. 6 of them sold on day 1. So, no, I'll be keeping the price as is.

Quoth I:

No pictures, but I found this exact suit at a discount store on yellow tag clearance for $70.

That's so short, I'd mistake it for a wimminz

Speaking of, forgot to mention: GM-H and I found a Rive Gauche today, too. Wimminz. Passed.

Unfortunately not....its a 46R, fits probably like a 44S (as GMMcL noted, the jacket is definitely shorter than standard).
post #64690 of 102600

Armani and Dunhill look legit to me.  Valentino probably is, but it doesn't matter...leave it.  I doubt Aquascutum is faked (I've never seen one at least).  Not sure what the last one is. 

 

Edit:  Jeebus GMMcL.  Well done.

I peeled off the sticker on the Armani tie to reveal Silk Made in Italy.

 

Are these legit?

GMMcL, OUT!
I have been searching for a pair of boots such as these for over a year now! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif WANTY! bounce2.gif



Meanwhile,

I didn't have a story to add to the recent ...
...until this week. Now I do.

On Tuesday, I was at Zip's Dry Cleaning ($2 for ANY garment! SRSLY!) waiting for a cotton PRL sport coat that I had in for a spot on the lapel. The gentleman next to me was also waiting for a shirt that had not been included in his last lot and the manager was looking for it. The man, in his late 60's or early 70's, was becoming agitated at the loss of his prized, short sleeved white shirt.

"It's a Claybrooke!" he stated with authority. "I just KNEW they would lose it!", he said, mostly to me as if seeking validation for his loss.

Just then, the manager came out from his office, triumphantly carrying the man's shirt and held it up for his approval, displaying the collar tag for identification purposes.

"Oh yeah. Stafford! That's right!", he proclaimed. He looked at me again so that I could bask in his fantastic stroke of luck. "How fortunate for you," I murmured and as I inched slowly away to the other side of the lobby, I could feel my skin shriveling from my body.


But wait. There's more. (Click to show)
As I age, I find that I have holes in my memory and I kept forgetting "Claybrooke" as the brand he thought he had lost. I feared that by the time that I would be able to type this, it would be completely gone from my brain cells. The last time I recalled it (yesterday morning in the shower angry.gif ), I used a little memory helper so that I wouldn't forget again. I knew that the name began with the letter "C" and I told myself to just think of Brooke Shields to help remember. As I was typing this morning, all I could think of was Britney Spears. I was completely lost and then a commercial came on TV featuring...BROOKE SHIELDS!

Just a couple of things from this week.

Versace Collection jacket. I think it's real, looks like Zegna's tag. I don't know Versace's hierarchy well, so I don't know where this fits into that. It is 30% viskose, is that weird?

Cool Borsalino. I love the ivory/cream color, I'm just uncertain when/wear I'd wear it.
