Fresh! The fabric has that "just out of the package" feel.

Inside out. No skids or telltale yellowing.

I'm going to say this gently.

You have some serious issues. That you would thrift a pair of boxers is bad enough. That they are JAB is even worse. That you would boast about it is, well, I'm not sure what it is, but it isn't normal.

I have thrifted a pair of boxers, but they were J. Crew and brand new, still in the package. I once thrifted a pair of woolen boot socks that I was positive were new, but I cleaned them anyway before wearing. I have thrifted Derek Rose silk pajamas. But boxers? To save, what, $5? Whoa.

My mother wears thrifted underwear and boasts about it. My mother also has a switch on her hot-water heater so that you have to plan 45 minutes in advance before washing your hands or doing the dishes. She figures it saves her about $10 a month in electricity. Maybe you should go thrifting with her. That's a haul I'd love to see. Or maybe not.

1....2....smells like pooo.... 3.... 4..... thrift thread war. I hope I'm wrong but here we go again.... nest.gif

 

 

 

I WAY overpaid for the 1st one (only the 2nd I've ever found of PRL Script shirts in nice condition and a "slim" custom fit!). PRL Script shirts are really nice, MOP Buttons, split back yoke, etc. Then the very next store, BAM another one for about 10% of what I paid for the 1st one, no reinforced gussets though. If I average them together, its on the normal/high side of thirft prices for shirts which makes me feel better.

Please, no. I just wanted to know if they were, um, available.

I was kidding. But, yeah, my mom does thrift her underwear and can't understand why I do not. Then again, I have hot water on demand.

Whatever floats boats, it's all good. A lot of folks won't do secondhand pajamas. I didn't do pajamas at all until I scored the ones from Derek Rose. They are marvelous.

How is Hiltl thought of around here? I found three pairs and to my untrained eye, they seem to be of decent quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part is they're all in my size.

Nice! I like them. I've seen them in the thrift stores here and there but haven't cop due to none of them were my size. They are pretty well made. Those are great finds for yourself!

I concur with all, tailcoat kicks ass. I once found two very similar tailcoats in Brian's size at an antique store. There was a theater program in the pocket of one dated 1928. I was hot on buying it but the owner had just gotten it in, hadn't priced it yet and was closing up for the night (actually had reopened just for me). Is didn't want to push him. Sadly, it was far from home and I haven't been back.

there was a dude in the unofficial trade post thread looking for something very similar about 1.5 months ago. Would be a shame not to connect those dots.


No finds today but a retina-burning, rule violating thrift fit occurred. Luckily, no pictures. I feel like an addict that's on a binge: I went all waywrn, and am not back off the wagon onto nutty fits. Aw, well. YOLO, right? Wtf do we buy this shit if we're not going to have fun!

Cool, thanks for the input. I figured it'd at least be worth a shot since they were in my size.

Nat, Hans and I have all commented approvingly. They don't get much airtime, but they're well made and well cut (imho). Apparently more popular over Europe way. If you search SF generally, someone once said he wouldn't buy them because the name is too close to the beginning of Hitler's name. I think that's silly, but brands have suffered for less substantial things than that. I wonder whether there's something to it ....

Hitl is more than decent. Easily the equivalent of Bills, khaki wise. Nice score.

Finally managed to get out for a little bit today.  Picked up a staple gray HSM suit that almost fits - if operation lose the gut continues at the same pace, I'll be wearing it in another month. No pics, as its more of a personal brag.

 

Also found two Oxxford sport coats.  Surgeon's cuffs, fairly recent.   If my google-fu is accurate, they came from a recently passed, local area CEO.  Is it weird that I looked that up?

 

 

 

 

And some ties...

 

 

Ties (Click to show)

BB,BB, vintage BB, Barney's New York that was crazy soft and had a nice weight to it.  Do they make their own ties or is this the product of some other awesome maker?

 

 

 

Polo handmade, Thomas Pink (my first), Polo handmade, and a Stefano Ricci that must have been in the bottom of the donation bin a while, it's horribly bent out of shape.  I've had some luck steaming similar wrinkles out of vintage BB ties, so I thought I'd give this one a shot.

^ Nice—you don't see Oxxford that recent very often. The first jacket looks great. The second is definitely an orphaned suit coat rather than a sport coat.

This is mega fake, correct? No country of origin tag either. I'm not the one that bought it for the record.

post #66195 of 125255

looks fake

how did it feel? cashmere-esque?
