 Looks awful. Unusual is the appropriate word here. Those are just horrible. Looks like chocolate (or shit) was melted into pant form...

I checked the tag....you were right.

That is just poor....looks like a monkey tied that knot and took those out of focus pics.

If you're going to steal the man's photo listing layout at least do it some justice.

Probably something like this .....

 

 

 

 

 

It's not in my possession anymore. I missed a bunch of moth nibbles on the sleeve, so I redonated it. Nobody here, save Nat, seemed to excited about it.

 

And this was even pre-DM7, I think.

If that happens to be a short regular and a generously cut 36, I'm all over that.

Check out this interview with former second-wave Willis & Geiger owner Burt Avedon (yes, that Avedon).  On Vice Magazine's website of all places.  The guy sounds like he has spark even at 89 years old.

Yep, Castangia is damn nice stuff. IIRC they make some of the house-label tailored stuff for Bergdorf Goodman. Pricing and quality is on par with Isaia's tailored garments.


Slow day today. Picked up a James Perse polo for $1.49 and a mint condition Sunspel white ribbed L/S crew-neck in a size XL. Should make my gas money back.

Awesome Lanvin find!

 

So since you have time to thrift, do you think you could find time to return the thousands of dollars worth of my items that you haven't listed after over half a year?

 

And for the record guys, I'm not trying to start a shitstorm.  I've been trying to get this stuff back for months and months.  This is my last resort.

Allllllright. So this thread got me out and thrifting. 

 

I am in Toronto, so quality finds are rare. But this is what I've found thus far:

 

1) A 3-button sports jacket made here in Canada for Harry Rosen by a company called Sedgewick. I have never heard of them before, but the jacket feels great, and is tailored for a trimmer fit through the waist and hips. I like it a lot.

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

The jacket takes on various shades of blue depending on the lighting:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) A 2-button sports jacket made by Coppley (also Canadian). Shoulders fit me perfectly, but I don't know exactly what to wear it with. After I got it home, I found a small hole that had been previously repaired by the back vent (moth?). Had I known, I probably wouldn't have bought it. As an aside, what would you guys wear with this? I liked the pattern when in the store, but I don't know how to use it. The pattern causes this weird optical illusion where the white parts begin to look yellowish.

And the hole repair which I somehow failed to notice:

 

 

It wasn't this obvious in the store, I swear!

 

 

 

 

3) A 2-button black wool/cashmere blend Strellson jacket. Again, fits trimmer through the body. It is very soft and warm. 

 

 

 

 

More pics (Click to show)

 

 

 

4) A Hugo Boss dress shirt with French cuffs. Like new. Still had a dry cleaning tag on it. Boss shirts fit me perfectly! biggrin.gif

 

 

 

 

More (Click to show)

 

 

5) A Brooks Brothers slim fit button-down shirt. It looks like new on the outside. The only sign of wear is a very slight discoloration on the inside tag.

 

 

 

 

 

6) My favourite - I found these old shoes for $15. The soles are pretty worn out, and the insoles are worn as well, but the upper has stood up well to time. If anyone could help me determine who made these, I would appreciate it. They fit my foot well.  I am also strangely attracted ot the sense of history that the shoe has. 

 

 

Please help me identify these! (Click to show)

 

Soles are worn:

 

As are insoles:

 

Can you make out any of the writing? This is the best pic I could get. There is no paint left on the mark - just the imprint. It looks like the insignia had a crown and then the capital letter "B".

 

I assume that this is a new heel. I googled the term "schoemmakers sinds 1734" and couldn't find anything.

 

 

I like the shape. I think they're graceful. My feet are pretty wide, so it's rare for a shoe to be wide enough for my foot yet look proportional.

 

There are holes here as if lacing would go through the sole itself, but the sole does not appear to have been penetrated by a thread. I do not undersand why these marks are here. Is this a sign that they glued thread in to make it look like a more expensive shoe, and the glue let go? Or were these resoled with a different construction method? Did they never have any thread?

 

 

 

EDIT: Update! I did more searching, and I think they're made by Van Bommel - a Dutch shoe company. :)

 

 

Coppley doesn't get much love on here but I think they are well made work horse pieces.

How bad could they be....right? (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strange but seeing these ties make me want to play lazer tag!!!

post #67016 of 114955

So, for the last 2 days, I went to The City aka SF for 2 nights of Seder. Went to a few awesome SW&D shops within 5 miles radius.

 

This is what I've discovered.

 

1 stop at Selfedge. http://www.selfedge.com/

 

My god, that place was super clean and had racks of Japanese denim like Sugar Cane, 3sixteen+, and The Flat Head, so on. Super nice denim! They had 3 pairs of beautifully faded jeans framed on that walls that were donated by various people. One of them was the VP of The Flat Head.

2nd stop. Unionmade. http://www.unionmadegoods.com/

 

This store was super huge compared to Selfedge. They had great heritage products from hair care to Aldens.

 

Staff are super helpful. Tons of selection. Super expensive. The cheapest item I've found was a LVC raw denim shirt that was $215. RRL denim was actually fairly affordable at $240. RRL work shirts, made in Singapore $330!? Woa! I've come to realized how much I've been spoiled by this thread and thrifting. I've gotten RRL shirt in great condition for $5 a pop. Anyhow, they had slightly used Aldens shells for $640. I think those were returns.

 

Anyhow, I went there mainly to try on a few pairs of Tellasons. I was so impressed by the quality of the denim that I prefer their Cone Mill, SF made products over Japanese denim. If any of you gents are interested in Tellason, please check them out and get hooked like I am! Super quality denim at the price point.

3rd stop, Sui Generis http://www.suigenerisconsignment.com/

They are a super duper consignment shop who knows their shit! So, no RLPL for $25. Super curated store that looks like a museum. All of their products are well taken care of and are in great condition! I was so blown away by the experience, I forgot to take pics. lol

 

Anyhow, too rich for my blood, so I left shortly.

 

4th stop, MAAS & Stacks http://www.maasandstacks.com/

 

Love their minimalist but super stylish shop. It's a small shop that's been around for only 2 years. They specialize importing Japanese SW&D brands. They also carry SF approved brands such as BoO (I really dig their stuff), wings +horns, Norse Projects, and others. Being there has really gave me a strong first hand experience of what quality street wear is. I felt in love with a NP shirt with crazy prints, the exact opposite of the versatile and subtle approach of what BoO's designer, Scott Sternberg takes. Almost pulled the trigger on it at $175...

5th and final stop, Taylor Stitch http://taylorstitch.com/

 

I wasn't too impressed with their denim, shirts, and accessories but was surprised to see Southwick does their MTM program and they also have MTM shoes, boots, and shirts. Makes sense giving their name. lol Finally found a pair of 16.5 Tellason in Ladbroke Grove fit. That is the fit I've been looking for in that particular weight since I've outgrown my NnF Skinny Guy Elephant 2's...=( Anyhow, they don't carry Tellason's newer lines...=(

 

Anyone familiar with Duck Cotton pants or Duck Canvas pants? TS carry those and wow, those pants took a page from denim and make their fabric with weft and warp resulting in super durable, thick, but comfortable pants! No pics but think chino like pants at around 14 oz!

 

Before leaving the shop I ran into these adorable little guys.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Japanese handkerchiefs! Coped this guy figured I can use them for PS. lol

*

 

 

 

 

*

 

Anyhow, I was being good and didn't thrift. We are leaving for our vacation soon and didn't want to spend more money and clutter up the house further. lol Also, is was in TS that I was hit by the notion that I shall stop rolling or over cuffing my jeans and just do a slight cuff and stack the rest which translates to no hemming.

 

This experience really has opened my eyes to the awesome world of fashion and slapped me across the head with the reality that there's another world out there besides the thrift scene. If anyone of you gents are near The City or are planning or thinking of coming here, please stop by The Missions and Castro to check out these awesome shops! You will be glad you did!

Jesus, remind me to never take a week off from reading the thread. Just bashed through 30+ pages of posts the last 2 hours.

 

EV, sorry I missed out during the nonsense earlier. Chino isn't close but I have other reasons to head there and could have done a little ground work for ya.

Any of the regulars want/need a nice Gore-tex jacket? This is a recent Country Frey (by Lodenfrey) jacket in a size 52EU. Terrible lighting in the photos, the last photo gives you an idea of the true color. I'm happy to ship it at cost + shipping (€5 + €20-25 to the States). PM me if you'd like measurements.
