I was considering it but ultimately left almost all behind. There was 20-30 bright patterned Ferragamos, a bunch of BB Makers, a Zegna or two and a couple of others. Grabbed the only two that weren't terrible for myself to see what I could do:


Cotton BB Makers


Turnbull & Asser

Made a few stops today at some parts of town I don't usually hit up but nothing much of anything. Both of these available


Brooks Brothers Made In Italy belt, seems NWOT with the BB logo written over in marker. 34.


Polo cotton blazer, breast pocket and vent still basted shut. 42R but feels a little more like a long

Spent all day with the lady at the mall then so too tired to take any good pictures it seems.

To all those that I have no replied to and / or still have not shipped stuff too facepalm.gif I finally have some time free Monday onwards. The mad crazy awful rush is over PHEW!

I have not done thrifting for yonks, I wonder if those Thom Browne suits will still be there after 2 weeks. Will be hitting that store tomorrow but wont be holding my breath.

I did find an old skeet blanket in a thrift pile at home, most awesomest polo skeet I ever saw. I have now used it for its appropriate purpose, anyone fancy pics of good ol Robert Graham lol8[1].gif

I will be replying to PM's tomorrow or next day, I got to get me some shut eye have slept sparingly the last week prob will get a good 12 hours and get up in a timely manner to start hitting some thrift stores............

Quick teaser pic of today's ridonkulous find.  I haven't been thrifting in nearly two months.  Hope to get out more frequently...

So to go along with Randomore's post, it appears my haul was the pre-game show.

 

A good number of shirts I picked up yesterday had the string still around a button where a tag once hung. Today, there were tags. Lots and lots of tags.

Yeah, no go on the tie with jeans. I will also submit that preppy cardigan with sneakers doesn't really go either.

There's no easy way to say this, but... those pants look like they have a vagina.

We (apparently) mourn the loss today (ok, recently) of an incredibly rich sartorial giant with phenomenal taste.

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?

This is the Columbia to look out for, guys! Nice find! Very early stuff, I'd say early 70's to about 1978-79.

+1. I would have thought my area would be good. I nearly had a heart attack when I found ONE Barba. These dudes pulled in DOZENS.

What.

Du.

Fug.

Thanks for that info. I thought the same thing too. It has a Canadian sales tag in it with French on it so probably the latter part of that span since I don't think we had bilingual labelling until at least the mid-70s.
