post #66091 of 124477

@FaceOfBoh, regarding LVC's, I don't really like they way they tend to fade. I haven't had good experiences with high contrast fading from LVC's so wash them, soak them, or do whatever you want to get them clean because I don't really think it's going to make that much of a difference in terms of getting those sweet honey combs or those whiskers. biggrin.gif

Now I'm trying to decide whether they make my (also thrifted) chocolate suede John Lobb Chesters irrelevant. 
I have just two questions.
1. Are those PRL?
2. What size are you?

Dibs 10.5-11D.

One of my favorite finds of the year. Doesn't get much more "f you" than this. Any guesses on the age?

PRL old timey shirt with bib front and detachable reversible collar. XL.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Super cool PRL workshirt. L

 

 

 

Vintage PRL button front polo w/ MOP. XL

 

 

 

 

Paul Smith London. 16.5

 

 

 

Old timey pyjama type shirt from PRL, MOP buttons. M

 

 

 

 

 

Nice Eton button-down. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This dude plastered his name over the label, but I think this is a good Armani shirt. 

 

 

 

 

 

Brioni long sleeve polo. L.

 

 

 

Nice Lorenzini, they always have thick ass MOP buttons.

 

 

 

Minty Borrelli button-down, just in time for spring. Gasped when I saw it. Medium. 

 

 

 

 

Pants (Click to show)

 

Bill's M2s 40

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first nice denim find. Earnest Sewn half-selvedge with button fly, hidden rivets, selvedge on the waistband and belt loops. Nice raw (I think) denim. This thread has been really helpful as I've been getting into denim: http://supertalk.superfuture.com/index.php?/topic/79002-so-im-having-a-pair-of-jeans-made/ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hickey Freeman FF flannels, for a small dude. 32 waist.

 

 

 

 

Incotex chino linos. 34 waist. 

 

 

 

Shoes (Click to show)

 

Ferragamo tassel loafers, very good condition. 12D. 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweaters, Jackets (Click to show)

 

 

BB Italian cashmere cable knit. L. 

 

 

 

BB extrafine merino. XL.

These pictures don't do this thing justice. It's amazing, and it's 97 years old and in basically perfect condition. The softest silk lining, perfectly restrained and tasteful tailoring. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it.

Sweet jacket. Definitely early-mid 1970s. 

post #66096 of 124477

Very impressive (unbelievable to an amateur like me, really) what you guys are able to find.  I was pretty pleased with myself for getting this Oxxford SC for $30 recently

Lol, I think most advocates of never washing raw denim or only soaking them are trying to get those high contrast fading to the best of their ability. I think, as long as you don't wash them constantly, and soak or wash them in cold water when they start to smell, you should be ok, as long as you hang dry them.

Sensible advice. We do have a cold water hand wash setting on our washer. It basically just gently turns clothing over in cold water, so I'll give that a try at some point.

Keep me updated on the fades! I want pics!

post #66102 of 124477

If any of you gents are looking for a pair of grey selvedge, UO are having a sale on their Unbranded for $49.99. Just need a penny to get free shipping.

 

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=19140920&parentid=SALE_M_BOTTOMS

 

They also have the skinny version but from the pics, it looks to be the slim/straight model. Just click on the sale tab and you should see them fairly easily.

 

I coped a pair of the tapered leg ones. They are brought to you by the same folks behind NnF. Not the best quality but it's hard to find a pair in grey that's under $50. shog[1].gif

post #66103 of 124477

Opps, forgot to add these Dockers selvedge chinos!

 

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=26402347&parentid=SALE_M_BOTTOMS

 

Almost coped these, too but too many pants, I have!
