Size small. So bummed it doesn't fit (available)
 

 

 

  That's pretty amazing... Every time I see the Frostline logo, it brings back happy memories.... My mom always was too cheap to buy stuff pre-made. nest.gif

Finally, a really cool vintage Abercrombie & Fitch shooting shirt in pristine condition.  Anybody know the vintage?  Here in Kansas, we don't have much to do outside in the hot summer other than fishing and blowing things up, so this will get good use.  NA

Says made in British Hong Kong, so that dates it a bit.

 

 

 

 

 I don't know the vintage on the A&F shirt, but that and those Orvis pants are freakin' sweet.

WTF?



Spooky thrift story, part VII

In other news, I think I was the straw that broke Lilly Pulitzer's back. I was going to wear the only item of hers I own--an orange polka dot tie--to church yesterday, which I had gotten out and arranged on my clothes rack (yeah, wife got me one for birthday, it's awesome, although at times I feel like a certain compulsive SF WAYWRN veteran who likes to poast pix of his fit and then what the outfit looked like on his clothes rack) until I changed my mind and put it away and instead busted out the orange orvis gingham and solid blue Panta in my fit pic yesterday...when I got home from church the news was out she croaked.



R.I.P., you. You have achieved thrift store immortality, your fun colored stuff will jump out among the Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta and Geoffrey Beene crap forever and fool us into thinking we've found Brioni. Oh, and in the grayest, crappiest depths of winter, your garments will remind us spring will come, eventually.

In still other news, 42R brethren, this is available
Thick wool Orvis blue patch pocket blazer in flat-out awesome shape if ur looking for one. PM

I am a Washington fan. Fave SI of all time, representing the best football day of my life. I sent him a copy at Grambling to sign for me, which he did. One of the few sports memorabilia items I've kept (sold most of everything I'd accumulated)

They are straight fit, not slim. I wouldn't wear then with a shirt tie SC unless it was super country and casual. I normally Rock em with some boots.

I just need to say again how cool I think you are fueco, you seem to have had a cool life and pretty much destroy everyone here in outdoor knowledge (lets go camping)

I have a pair of lvc 505s and they fit straight up skinny I was disappointed I was looking for an 8-8.5 inch leg opening and they have like a 7.5. I was going to keep them dark and crispy so I could wear them with a tie or tweed jacket or whatever if I wanted to, but now since they are so slim I just let them stack above my chelsea and cowboy boots

I never find anything newish tie wise by Lily Pulitzer. If I did I'd pick it up. Love the bright colors.
post #68470 of 102438
Cop or not? This is NOT an eBay question. I have never worn an unstructured cotton SC, but this one caught my eye. Am I going to be disappointed or pleased with Paul Smith Sportswear? Sorry, I don't have a full shot, but you can see the pattern. Only structural element seems to be light shoulder padding. Lapels are at a normal point-not top of shoulder, not nipples. What else to check for, or just avoid? I'll go back later if I get encouragement.

Man, I would love to participate in this one. Sadly, have been unable to thrift (stores or ebay) a decent tuxedo for a more, ah, portly figure.

That said, if anyone comes across a decent 44-46R with a 42 waist tux, get at me.

Holy hell.  I've oogled this actual Margiela sweater on multiple occassions on a retailer's website.

If it's cheap go for it. But it's one of PS' diffusion lines. Not very high quality.

The good stuff is Paul Smith London (Made in Italy - half canvassed) and Paul Smith Mainline (his runway line - made in Japan, Belgium, etc...).

 I saw a mint Sansui AU-515 Integrated Amplifier at a Goodwill a few years ago for $78.00 and passed on it cause I didn't know what it was. I wanted a silver Kenwood amp. facepalm.gif
