That's some signature, and the address is even less legible. Good luck with this and keep us posted. Doubt PayPal will do anything but look for excuses, but it seems like you've at least got a start here.

Hit up an old favorite today; not a lot but some decent stuff.  Nothing available (all going to eBay or keeping). 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

New old stock FootJoy Classics cordovan tassel loafers. 

 

 

New Fender amp covers.

   

Vintage Ray-Ban aviator clip-on shades.

 

Vintage Honda motorcycle jacket...front:

 

...back:

 

...which I will probably keep because I bought this little guy last weekend (1973 Honda CB350G with 9,800 original miles): 

 

Vintage Binion's Mint 400 Off-Road race jacket (1989, the last year of the original race).

 

I. Spiewak & Sons cotton / Thinsulate jacket.

 

Jack Wolfskin fleece.

 

Horrible A|X shirt, NWT.

 

Armani Collezione SC.

 

 

 

Canali Proposta silk/wool blend SC.

 

 

 

Harry Rosen jacket, made in Italy - Ing. Loro Piana Storm System.  This is a really nice coat and I'd keep it if it fit me but it's going to eBay (with the rest of this stuff) towards paying myself back on the motorcycle...

 

 

Luciano Barbera Sartorial handmade wool SC - the deal of the day...

Made it out today and managed to not find anything good that wasn't beat to hell, with the exception of these that are still questionable (right one?). Dark navy, tagged 36, available if anyone's interested.

ATLnoob, niiiiice bike. I love them from that vintage. (Favourite movie: On Any Sunday).

And that Harry Rosen is far from home. HR is a national high-end menswear chain in Canada. I often wonder about the backstory of garments that I see in the thrifts or posted here.

Hey FOB - thanks!  I'd been looking around for a project bike to keep me poor and out of trouble, but decided to just get a turn-key ride-ready bike and avoid the headaches.  Very spur-of-the-moment, but I'm sure I'll be happy with it for a while.

 

I'd heard of Harry Rosen but didn't know they were Canadian; Loro Piana Storm System always pushes my "buy" button and generally means a quick-turn on eBay.

Some of my better finds from KC:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top 2 Paul Stuarts NWT and bottom two are french cuffed. Woolrich is pictured because it's one I finally found in my size that isn't ichy as hell.  BB Country Club shirt is made from Egyptian cotton and is as soft as a baby's bottom. Canali is 100% Linen -- I know I'll be rocking this on the beach someday.  Burberry Black Label (only sold in Japan) has pretty cool detailing.  

 

 

 

Buttons are THICK

 

 

Cotton 3/2 PRL Jacket with surgeon cuffs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RRL Grey SC 43R

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RRL Camelhair SC 42L

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BB 3/2 SC with patch pockets 42L

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BB 3/2 Blazer 44R - DanM has dibs if he wants it 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BB Navy Suit 46L

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, this is my most recent purchase with my thrifting funds.  Time to fill this sucker!

 

 

 

What's not pictured: 15-20 shirts (including PRL, BB, Armani, Orvis, Burberry London, Gitman Bros), a few ties (BB x 2 - one pretty cool vintage tie that's a wool silk mix, Robert Talbot x 4, PRL x 3, and a Paul Stuart ), 2 Hugo Boss suits, and an Armani SC.   I know I'm forgetting some, but that's good for now.

The ugly one at the GW in OP?

 

And on another note, unless you like it for personal use, the "Ralph Ralph Lauren" coats aren't what you are looking for.

That Japanese Burberry is an awesome find, while those Ralph RL are not so much...Sorry to say, that is NOT the RRL you are looking for.

Yep, that's the one.  

 

About Ralph Ralph Lauren -- that's what I thought, but then I read somewhere (I think here on SF?) that it was the same. Dang.  Oh well, might still get something out of it...

I dont get to play around with them anymore, but my passion is cars. Saving up for a fun toy when I'm not spending it on clothes biggrin.gif

Note to self: don't go to the thrift store on a weekend when there is a big sale going on. Got a parking ticket for parking in the same spot I always do because there were like 5 cars parked in a clearly posted No Parking Zone. Literally 5 cars in a row parked on the side of a fairly busy side road with a like 3 No Parking signs. The cop probably just thought while he was there he'd get every other questionably parked car as well. baldy[1].gif

In any case, it wasn't all bad. They had a sale going on, all pants (not including jeans) were $1. The sale had it's ups and downs. The ups were that I scored two pairs of flat front Incotex cords for $1 each. The downside was that some clown walked off with the pants for a mint, super recent Samuelsohn Loro Piana fabric glen plaid suit. They were likely separated and with the pants sale going on, they didn't stand a chance of sticking around long enough for me to match them up after finding the jacket. ffffuuuu.gif

Here's what I did find

2 pairs of Incotex flat front cords. Marked 38.





Uniqlo selvedge jeans. Slim straight. Marked 34 x 34





Couple ties

Waiting in line for an REI used gear sale... Got my eyes on some down. Time for a stay-warm thrift fit.

REI Convertible hiking pants (thrift)
REI Wool socks (clearance)
Original Teva sandals (thrift)

Hah! I normally don't wear socks, but when the temperature is low 40s and you're sitting around in the shade...
