Just the ties from the last few days.

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

5 Turnbull and Asser 

 

 

 

 

Not a grenadine right?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since when does Church's make ties?

2) There are Canali jackets from the 70s with two buttons and two vents.

 

3) It was probably frenchy, and he's probably laughing at you.


Given the condition of the jacket I doubt it.

 

If frenchy is laughing at me, for not flipping it, maybe I should have.  But it is too much work for me.  Besides I will be leaving Toronto and heading home soon, so my thrifting days are over, until the next time I return to Canada in a couple of years.

Best of all, tagged 30, fits me like a glove!!! a bit tight around the man parts, but still very biggrin.gif

Sweet denim! At least we know they are not fakes as it is a new brand and the counterfeiters haven't had the time to do what they do. Best of all USA made, like Lucky Brand was before shipping some jobs overseas.

Holy shit, bro! You've taken thrifting to another level! That pool table is amazing! What kind of wood is it? That Ms. Pac-man machine! Tie a string to a quarter and watch the high score fly! That weight set is pimp, too!

Stopped by only one place today and had one of my best hauls for just one store.

 

Must have been the place that Brooks Brothers items go to die.

 

This is a 3 piece suit (39S) in really great shape - from 1962.  3 buttons, tiny lapels, just unusual.. Not even 1/2 lined, this thing is closer to 1/4 lined?  Available

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Here's a Brooks Brothers suit from Thailand - seems to be a seersucker in 43R

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

And a camelhair Brooks Brothers in 44R

 

 

 

And another random Brooks Brothers coat in 44R

 

 

 

 

Found a few nice things that weren't Brooks Brothers:

 

 

An older Hickey Freeman Tuxedo in 42R

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

A Zegna soft coat from Neiman Marcus also in 44R

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

A Polo Ralph Lauren - 100% Flax coat made in Italy - also 44R

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

A couple of Turnbull & Asser ties:

 

 

 

 

Hermes tie:

 

 

 

And my favorite was a Brioni coat from Neiman Marcus - Cashmere blend, surgeon cuffs (3 buttons) in a 44R as well.  Only problem is that I'm a 44L...

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

I did all that in the 15 minutes before they closed.  Quite exciting!

Pretty sure she bought herself a one way ticket to banned-town.

In all honesty, I suspected it was only a matter of time before someone got banned for inappropriate behavior once a member of the fairer sex joined our ranks. I did NOT expect it to be the member of the fairer sex.

Eddie: Incredible. I gotta think that a vicuna Kiton on deep discount is still well into five figures.

Personally, I think it was a bunch of bullshit for DM7 to call her out for making a gay joke THREE POSTS after he made a joke comparing a woman to "Tom Ford level, thought it must have been from a season or two ago." But maybe I'm not a raging fucking hypocrite. Who knows? I thought she was funny.

Nice shoes, mate!

Hm, I just passed (for over a week) on a 3pc corduroy suit just like this one, only in camel.  Funny, since our territories are adjacent to each other fight[1].gif

Oh, and Eddie: NICE.  You know, I think some of your posts would get a lot more love if they didn't overwhelm to the point of being nauseating-ly insane.  Here you go with just one item of amazingness.  Less is more?  With vicuna, maybe.

Wow, so much hate for a joke that happened 2 days ago.....  And even after I sent you 2 suits, GMM..... Perhaps I made the wrong trade....

On a side note, any of you assholes who had a problem with what I had to say, can kiss my ass. That shows me who gets offended quite easily over the internet. Either way, I don't care. I applaud how serious you all are....

That Zegna is quite old. That Brioni is very beautiful! That Hickey though.... Wow. The inches between the end of the cuff and the start of the buttons... wow. Is it missing 2 buttons, by chance?
