Maybe its just me, but those patterns don't go together so well... maybe if the jacket had a red overcheck?

It irritates me to know that if they didn't have full-time employees picking though the racks in the backroom this stuff would have been fair game to a lot of customers.

I can't imagine what's getting plucked if they're passing over EG

Do I stand a snowballs chance at getting 2 or 3 inches out of those sleeves.........?

 

Naw you're screwed, better off selling it.

 

On the plus side, maybe you can sell it to the same guy who will inevitably buying the T-Rex armed Helmut Lang blazer I picked up today.

Please send thoughts, prayers and whatever you believe in; we're out of the woods, but it will be a long and windy road home.

But most of all, keep poasting awesome stuff. Thrifting will be a rare treat, and posting even rarer. So I will live vicariously through you guys for a while.

But don't think this gives ANYONE permission to fish my waters, or that it any way negates my permadibs on 42R, 36 x 30, 16.5 x 34, 10.5-11D.

We have plenty of family and friend support, but this community is a part of tha, for me anyway.

Hey, at least I'm wearing selvedge and Brioni in the hospital. Priorities, amirite?

Edit: I think it was fairly obvious, but just in case, I was kidding.

(It was rlpl). :hides:

You posted tons of great stuff, but this is grail city for me.  Vintage wool knitwear is often done very well and has a flattering, slim fit with high armholes.  I've been obsessed with vintage knits of late and would love to find more.  That embroidered name is just tits.

Thanks. It put a big smile on my face when I pulled it off the rack...and then it fit. I'd been looking all winter for a store in my area stocking similar sweaters from either North Sea Clothing or HNS Herning. Couldn't find one. Couldn't believe I thrifted a vintage one. Same goes for the Golden Bear coat I found. Been looking all winter for one like it in my size. Sucks I have to wait 9 months or so to wear it out, though, EvilAbhed caught me wearing the coat on a day not quite cold enough to warrant it. My office is freezing. They can't get the air conditioning to shut off.

Picked up this sick nasty Hackett summertime jacket from forum member Holdfast. Despite the loud pattern, I'll be wearing this plenty in the upcoming spring and summer. I'm going to rock it like a cardigan, over a polo and some khaki's.

Everything was half off today. I paid up a little for the NF, but it fit me so well and I really dig the colors so fuck it. They had some knock off NF rain parkas right next to this badboy for 10x the price. nod[1].gif
Have a great weekend everybody!!!!!!!!!!!
