The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 4435

post #66511 of 124629

Picked this up for Tben because the store tagged it as a 38, but turns out they were way off, since it fits me (Sorry T). So T's loss is my gain, if I decide to keep it. Anyone familiar with Mark, Fore & Strike (apparently a now closed Cape Cod store)?

Seems very similar to this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/100775395/vintage-41r-blue-crash-linen-sack-jacket

 

 

Also picked up some big boy staple suits.

BB Makers Brooksease 2 button navy (46 XLG) FF pants (38x32)

 

 

 

 

 

BB Brookease 3/2 charcoal (48R) FF pants (38x32)

 

 

 

And a mostly thrift fit (tie is Chipp2 grenadine received for Hannukah)

Dunhill car length overcoat. Very lightweight. Made in Italy. One of the front pockets has to be sewn up as it is separating from the body. Could be done with a machine or a needle and thread, IMO.

Where would Faconnable fall on the shirt scale. I saw a bunch of them today but left the because they'd be too small for me and I had no idea of reputation. Should I watch for them for myself? Or anyone here?

Machine sewn, usually classic (read: baggy) cuts. But they do get nice fabrics/patterns and generally use MOP buttons.

I have that same tie and wear it all the time. Thinking of getting a couple more this spring. For anyone else interested in affordable grenadines from Chipp2, here is the link to PutThisOn's article.

It was the fabrics that caught my eye as I was going down the rack; they were pretty nice, and interesting patterns (well, except on the solid white). Anyway, thanks to all for the guidance, I'll probably skip them even for myself since I hate classic cuts.

+1...
 
 I like Faconnable shirts for myself. Perhaps as I pick up more higher end shirts, these will get re-donated; but they seem to be decent quality and fit fairly well.

First thrift find that fits. This is an older Zegna label right?

They were still setting out new stuff and I was in a hurry. I'll check back tomorrow. Five bucks seemed like cheap insurance in case they show...

Awesome...and real. However, DO NOT WEAR WITH A YELLOW SHIRT. Try light blue.

With that color and pattern, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find them in the women's pants aisle.

You should also search this thread; the topic has been discussed before and some members have posted recommendations of places that have done the work for them. The place that does it here charges around $70 a hole. I think that was in line with others have posted.

 

 A lady at a cleaning/alterations place said she'd look at it and might be able to do the job. I have to take the jacket to her. I asked her on the way to work this morning.
