Picked up this awesome NWT charcoal SC by Alexandre Plokhov on the bay last week for about 90% off retail.

Wow! Can't wait to see the haul!

I've only been hitting the thrift stores for a short time now.  Here's what I found this weekend.



I'm not sure who made it but it's a nice blue cord jacket with elbow patches.  The inside pockets are trimmed with the cord material and it's fully lined.  All it says on the inside is "Made in Romania" at the top and the typical "Dry Clean Only" label.




This is a Brooks Brothers unstructured blue blazer.  It'll go nice with a pair of jeans for just kicking around in. I need to replace a sleeve button.





A Christian Dior trench with liner and button on collar piece. The reddish look on the front is from the lighting.  It looks almost new in person.

Finamore cucita a mano. Doesn't look like its been used. I'm guessing same donor. Tagged 15 3/4. Available

Not pictured 2 sector 9 longboards. Raiders Jersey, couple base layers ans fleeced and some other stuff that's in the trunk that ill try to take pics of soon.

Several months ago I linked up with fellow Seattleite and SF member, 1ofthecoolkids. He's taught me quite a bit about clothes and has picked up some really good shit for me when we're not thrifting together. He's got a large amount of great stuff that he's thrifted and I've exhausted myself trying to get him to post everything on here. He just doesn't have enough time.


Here's some of the stuff he's found me:


Filson, Nordstrom Cashmere (for wife), Silk Cashmere. Not pictured Kate Spade Cashmere for wife, and a Pendleton



Sweet leather timberland vest


APC, vintage BR


My favorite: RLBL

NWT Blackwatch from Merona, but they look good on!


Shuttle Notes shirt!

Bonobos crazy plaid pants.. haven't tried wearing these yet. They might just be pajama pants.


A suit that fits nearly perfectly, which is hard for a 36R who's 6'1 and 145. 


J Crew


Donna Karan, Shades of Greige



J Crew surcingle, J&M, Trafalgar


Mountain Hardwear softshell



.. and some other stuff I haven't photographed yet.




Holy crap, dude! There are so many awesome SW$D wear in that haul, if I had those and in my size, I would rock the shit out of those!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fing02[1].gif

Could have had some other finds, but one of the local thrift stores decided it would be a good idea to tag all the dress shirts right through the shoulder, leaving a small hole where the plastic attacher went through.

Found a Wing + Horns coat found at a thrift store for $90. Still has the spare button on the inside. My only concern is that the logo is entirely different from the current wings + horns logo, so I don't know if it's real or not. It says it's made in Canada and still has the CYC Design Corporation tag, though so I'm not too sure. Can anyone shed some light on this?

hey bike people I am currently in the market for something to cruise around in, no long rides or billion gears or anything, just to take short rides in town in, any suggestions or places to begin looking? brands ect would be helpful. I enjoy the clean lines of fixies but would not want one, I still need some gears

I finally had a moment this evening to dip into the blogosphere and saw that one of my items was featured on the PTO round-up. Someone close to home did the BIN what must have been almost immediately after posting because I never had the pleasure of watching the watch count climb. I wondered why the guy did the nuclear option but I just packed it up was grateful. Now it all makes sense. smile.gif
