Wait, how/s this even possible? I thought you were the one hanging out with the Beastie Boys in the early 90's, writing articles from the back of the bus and whatnot. Were you fifteen? Are you like Cameron Crowe 2.0? What's up?. puzzled.gif




P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

it is making me crazy too, the label is right there but I can't see the name. First letter is an M, last 3 letters are either RON or DON

Happy birthday, man! My 30th is coming up in June. People keep asking me if I'm bummed, but I tell them no. I've been itching to be 65 for about 10 years now. When you're old you can get away with anything, including wearing stuff like ascots and boaters that should get you beaten up as a young guy.

I've found a couple of things "recently."

I somehow had read the thread without noticing Breuer mentioned until Martinigirl (I think) posted a tie that got love the other day. And another since then. Are the shirts any good? Either way, it'll serve for a summer - pretty lightweight weave.


Found a PS yesterday. No mention of brand, but I like the pattern and color. Left a couple of others (including one from the Metropolitan Museum of Art) because of damage.


A few days ago I took this off the rolling rack before it had a chance to be put out.



Finally, something I bought discount a few years back - Filene's basement in Peabody, MA. At the time, I knew nothing about tie brands, but had heard of the concept of a seven fold tie. Was pretty sure I'd found one:


Looking back with a little more knowledge, I get a little confused when I look at this:


The Zegna is available. Also spam[1].gif somebody buy the blasted shoes in my sig! spam[1].gif

He is 29, right? There was that discussion a while back about how when he is wearing the Stark Nil can believe he is younger than he (Nil) is.

P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

 

I bet at least half of the rock-writing industry owes Cameron Crowe a huge debt for steering them toward their chosen profession. I was steered toward my chosen profession by hanging out with jazz musicians during college -- having Russell Malone ask me the name of my dealer (this question came out of nowhere, I assure you) -- and by interviewing living legends for the college paper -- "Hey George Clinton, what have you been up to lately?" "Lots of drugs, man."

 

Strange that the two anecdotes that stick out in my mind are both about drug use.

 

 

 

 

..... but seriously. Final Four tickets. I assume that by simply writing those words, some strange quasi-thrift synergy will work its magic.

Spoo sometimes returns some things I send him...(i.e. it looked good at first but when it comes pre-listing photo time he sees the giant rip we both missed at first, distracted by the Versace shiny stuff embedded in the fabric hahahah)...tagged with the LuxeSwap ID tag.

Those go str8 back to the thrift store, tag on.

So this isn't the only example out there. If you find one...look over the garment very closely, it's probably there for a reason.

I had found a Breuer linen shirt and a tie. I don't think Breuer gets enough love around here. It's underrated. That shirt you found looks like an older label, but the shirt is really nice looking! That Countess Mara tie you found is the newer label too. It's still a really pretty 7 fold. Diamonds with blue polka dots, very abstract looking. Nice finds!

Thrift synergy... I'm still hoping for kick-ass denim, assuming BnT hasn't cleaned out the valley...

Most were also scratched up enough to be questionable even without mold.

I am a huge fan. I frequently listen to Somethin' Else when I'm thirfting. Autumn Leaves comes on and I'm in the zone.
