 Books are generally only valuable if they're in excellent condition with the original dust jacket (unless of course they're extremely rare). I looked up the Lindbergh book, and prices range from $5 to $4500 for that version. Your definitely looks closer to the $5 end of the spectrum... You might get $15-20 for it if the inside is in good shape.

 

 abebooks.com is the place that most indy booksellers seem to use to price and sell books.

330CK, wouldn't mind seeing more photos of that Litespeed frame if you want to PM some over.  I picked one up for free a few months ago.

Turnbull & Asser (my first)

Zegna

Scottish wool, which apparently isn't worth jack based on my post-kop perusal of ebay. Oh well, I like it.

 

 

Minty set of Trafalgar braces, tiny checkerboard pattern of silver and navy. n/a

 

 

Some footwear finds from the last month, all n/a.

 

AE Margates

I've been using these to work on my mirror polishing skillz. Not there yet but I'm getting better.

 

 

 

AE Strands, well worn but they're serviceable while I'm I'm huntin, lookin for a come-up.

 

 

One of my nicest finds so far...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

They were a little dry when I found them, but a couple applications of Renovateur followed by multiple coats of Saphir cream and wax polishes got them pretty nice.

 

 

 

 

Can any of you John Lobb or boot aficionados give me any info about these? The construction looks identical to some of Lobb's equestrian boots, except these aren't nearly as tall as those I've seen on ebay or with a google image search.

It's rare that someone here still making "Thrift Shop" references can pull something like these. Damn.

^^^^ I can't really give you any info on the boots except to say they are fucking awesome. Nice score! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

While on the subject of shoes, picked up these on Wednesday.  9 1/2 not my size, but I love Florsheim.  Would love to trade with anyone who wants these and has something in a 10.5 black any brand dress shoe they don't need.

So, a few items today for me...$200 drained from Paypal smile.gif Should be able to double with one item.

For some reason I never find belts for me...so I was happy with these:


Trafalgar ( I always love the fact they tell you what and where the leather is from,) Coach, and Tommy Bahama
couple good summer belts

Spoo!

This leather (pleather?) on this looks pretty cheap but the buckle is nice...vintage Versace?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


What do we think on this buckle...real or fake?

belt on it wasnt original, thats for sure. (hat was a thrift find too!)

A few records for someone to drool over:


And finally the piece de resistance....at least for me! Sorry, but its not clothing!




Should be able to get 400+ for this guy. Pretty rare find IMHO.

Yeah, this. Holycrapballs.

Having now found my Kiton staple suits in my size, Lobb and G&G are at the top of my bucket list.

BTW, ScottW, if you're basing "value" on Ebay sold items the unlined and untipped scottish wool ties tend to do best, so that may be why you're seeing lower numbers. Personally, I like lined tartan plaid just fine (usually under a sweater), so if you like it, rock it.

I know I don't post much, but I just want to share;

Today is a day I've been looking forward to for a month.

The cap'n Wes & I are going on an epic thrift journey. Right now I'm enroute to our rendezvous.

It will be nice to actually have someone ride along.

Have fun and good luck!

Smaller guys: I picked up a pair of new Incotex (no tags) that are a bit too snug on me. I'm going to list them, but thought I'd offer them to anyone here at cost + shipping. Definitely not super-cheap, but I don't see a lot of EU 46s on ebay here, so I thought I'd offer them. They're summer weight, 100% cotton and optical white.

Which one of you is the driver, and who's the shooter?
