post #67126 of 116136
Went home for a couple of days. Man, I just realized how shitty thrifting is during the spring/summer. All the Goodwills in San Francisco stop putting out suits/jackets and focus on shirts.

Anyways, still managed to find a couple of goodies. Nothing spectacular though.

AppleMark

Commes des Garcon, Stefan Schneider (BLEW MY MIND), Etro, Dries Van Noten, Helmut Lang
AppleMark

2 x Skeet Rags, Miller's Oath x Dockers, Miu Miu
AppleMark

Luciano Barbera, Incotex
AppleMark

NWT Selvedge Levis, Margaret Howell (BLEW MY MIND)
AppleMark

Zegna Couture Shoes


Versace Classic V2 zipper blazer. It's coo.

Forgot about some other stuff. Taylor Stitch. Undercover x Uniqlo. some Tom Ford sunglasses.

AndroFan nailed it. If that's shitty finds for you... What the hell are GOOD finds?! Is that only labeled when you find Attolini, Kiton K50 suits, 13.5 micron anything, 100% vicuna anything...etc all in one find!?!?

Whenever I see these awesome California hauls I think of this song.



And then I weep softly.

At the very least, edit my quote out, since I have no desire to be associated with it....

SPAM - But seriously wtf (Click to show)

 

FYI - A box arrived today from a SF member with 11 items. Got home at 6pm, took photos of all 11, edited photos, and listed 4 of the nicest items by 9pm. How do you expect people to send you stuff if it takes you weeks, let alone MONTHS to list stuff?

 

HOT Hugo Boss Tuxedo Black 1 Button Satin Unvented Mens Jacket Pants US 38 R

 

RARE Brooks Brothers Donegal Tweed Plaid Sport Coat Blazer Jacket Mens US 44 R

b) my reference to ebay items was "SPAM" as clearly marked and was due to the response to DM7's comment. NOT out of the blue for no reason

 

carry on...

 

 

...especially after hypocritically shaming another dude for basically the same bullshit, in a less masked form.

No ones going to buy that stuff from me who's in the thrift thread anyway. Have you seen my last say 30 brags?? They don't even mention a size and I take out the size photos as I'm not trying to sell anyone in here anything. If someone really likes it they PM me and I know what most of the people who I trade with are looking for anyway. That stuff dosent even get bragged about. You TOTALLY missed the point of both my posts which makes it even funnier

But getting back to the subject of this thread.  For Canada thrifters a Harry Rosen store brand that fits is a good  find.  If anybody is looking for higher end products, that fit you, in a style that you like,  they can be found.  But you need time and patience. 

 

Do the pinch test just below the bottom buttonhole. Feel for three distinct, separate layers.


Also yes, to all you newbie Toronto thrifters out there, please buy up all the Harry Rosen house label stuff you see. And the older the better, because vintage is in don't ya know?

Unfortunately, they look to have been packed up for like 20 years, and one ended up having a bunch of holes. It was a SWEET purple/blue/black tweedy silk. The one I ended up keeping is gonna go down the street to Rave Fabricare for cleaning and pressing.

 

 

 

 

Nice jacket. Unfortunately you've found the other, far less common way to look like a homeless person while wearing thrift store clothing.

Damn there's some nice there. Well done!

post #67137 of 116136

Yeah bro, it's absolutely over my head.  Your intention was, undoubtedly, "ironical" in nature.

 

Yet your ebay links on this goldmine of an SEO free-for-all thread persist.  EGG'S ON MY FACE!

Looks great, Eazye! Post a pic of the navy suit next time you wear it.

Having sold a few "city" suits, they have a pretty decent cut which most people here are looking for and is on par quality wise with basic Brooks Brothers.

Went out on the hunt today to find a dark green Pal Zileri and a good looking Harris Tweed.








Found that tiny hole in the Zileri when I got it home. Think it can be mended? Oh and both are unavailable.
