WTF LA?! Wow. Remember the time DM7 thrifted a hundred Turnbull and Asser shirts?

Question for the LA guys: Are any of the thrifts brand aware and charge a bunch for the good stuff? Do they have higher-priced Goodwill boutiques they pull certain brands for? Or is everything standard thrift prices?

One of my best friends' little brother , Shane, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday. He was 21, in the US Navy, and was being deployed for 6 months this coming Monday. He was supposed to get married, to his long time girlfriend, yesterday. His buddies came down to take him out for a bachelor party Wednesday night. He partied a little too hard, and tried some things for the first time. Sadly it was also the last time. I knew him since he was in diapers, I went to high school, college, and was room mates with his older brothers. I dated his older sister. Needless to say, I knew the family very well, and they all have a special place in my heart.  They lost their mother last year, at age 48, to cancer and times have really been tough for them. My best friend, Steve, has been the leader of the family and paid for all the arrangements for his mothers service, as well as supported his father financially through the struggle. Unfortunately there is no money for his brothers memorial.

 

I am unable to make it to the service, so I am going to donate a large portion of this weeks sales to the memorial fund for Shane's service and burial. If there is anything you guys see that you want, let me know. I will still offer my usual 50% discount to BIN prices. I will also discount final auction prices.

 

I will be out of town for the rest of the weekend to go visit the family, and will be leaving for vacation next Wednesday. I will try to get everything shipped on Monday and Tuesday.

 

Thanks

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend's family.

Most are brand aware up to a point. Like Evil Abed said, sometimes the same shirt would have 2 different prices. PRL or J crew would sometimes be the same price as Attolini etc

Wow thanks everyone for your generosity in wanting to give to my friends memorial fund. This has brought tears to my eyes, but warmth to my heart. May you all be blessed 10 fold. Or 7-fold if you prefer.

Sorry smartphone double post.

Whut up Ya'll

 

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE KIND WORDS AND PRAISE ON MY FINDS!

 

Even though its only been a day since my last fix, I had to go out again this morning.

 

I thought luck was on my side when I came across 3 Ralph Lauren Purple Label Keatons...but upon further inspection, the pits were greasy and the collars had light-to moderate yellowing.

 

Since I dont have a surefire way of removing the stains, I left them.

 

What do you guys think? Good choice or Bad?

Bad choice. frown.gif

An Oxiclean and white vinegar soak can do wonders.

Last thing I ever thought I'd find at this store

Odd pants. Cool closure and details. More pics if interested.

 

Solid finds had I decided to turn around and head home.

 

Then I hit up this other store down the street from the first. Shit got real very fast. I messaged the Darkest of all Matter when I'd hit 10 shirts under my arm, and I hadn't even hit the actual shirt rack yet, just the new racks. Really wish they had carts at this shop, the clerks were laughing every time I brought over another 5 shirts to put behind the counter while I continued to pillage.

 

No gold buttons or Comme de anything but...

 

I humbly present to you:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

14x... (Click to show)

Barba. Half or so with hand attached collars/shoulders.

 

 

12x... (Click to show)

Finamore, also cucita a mano like the barbas. A few of these still had the string where the tag had been hanging wrapped around a button. Almost all of these in both brands had crisp fold lines still intact.

And then

 

2x... (Click to show)

Truzzi, a single Buonamassa Napoli (Kiton level Barba), one Camiceria Napoletana (also Barba made).

 

 

 

And for good measure

Attolini.

 

Did I mention this week it was 25% off mens long sleeve shirts? biggrin.gif I had to leave behind several Truzzi and Fins because they decided they were worth charging $15. No clue what made them not tag them all the same.

 

I think I'm done for the weekend.

 

NICE!

Thats a badass shirt haul!

 

Im curious to see what the MMM pants fully look like.

Early morning shoot kept me away from here and that shop from yesterday. Got the play by play from randy as he pillaged. Now en route to attempt a second strike to clean up after him.

Hmm. damn. I doubt they'll be there tomorrow, but I might try to hit it up and see if I could swoop them.

 

Where is the recipe and process for that again?

 

or if you could PM it to me that would be awesome, im sure everyone here is sick of hearing or seeing it posted
