post #70021 of 124630

To those who expressed interest in the Oxxford... I'll get back to you on Monday with more pics and measurements. I'm out of town for a running race until late Sunday.

I was going to wait to post my stuff from today until the dust had settled from the Spoo/DM7 throw-down, but it looks like that might not happen for some time so here goes.
Ben Silver, available
AppleMark

Possibly fake Gucci, but is was basicly free, so I thought I'd chance it, available.


Sweet PRL braces, N/A
AppleMark

PRL Mackintosh style rain coat, hidden placket and horn buttons, sz XL, available
AppleMark
AppleMark
Some pocket squares I thought were cool, cotton on the left, silk on the right

Pringle navy blazer with Pringle buttons, don't think I've seen on of these posted yet
AppleMark
AppleMark
AppleMark
I was eying this book at Barnes and Noble since we moved down here. Being the cheapskate I am, I didn't want to pay $30, but $5 I can do.
AppleMark
Sweet PRL by Corneliani crushed velvet blazer, sz XL, available
AppleMark
AppleMark
AppleMark
Zegna 15 milmil 15 pinstripe suit, found the trousers in the womans section. Interesting side note, I didn't know what 15 milmil 15 referred to, so I looked it up. Apparently, the average human hair is 50-60 microns thick, while the threads in this suit are 15, lending it a super soft hand. Very nice.

By now, I'm sure you are saying to yourself, one crushed velvet blazer would be enough for one days adventure, but hold on..... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Gieves and Hawkes crushed velvet blazer, my first Savile Row piece, but the best part, fits like a fucking glove! Single button, jetted pockets, dual vented and fucking mint!

Oh, and these.... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nettleton wholecuts, really bummed these don't fit, they are truly beautiful.

Ugh. Made my day that much worse. Ignorance is bliss, my friends. ffffuuuu.gif

Ouch. I feel your pain. I once made a dashboard to show me high-end menswear being sold by local sellers. I soon figured out I'd rather not know what I was missing.

Picked up: 40r blue pinstripe oxxford suuuiiit, old zegna chalk windowpane suit with a tiny inseam on the legs

 

Passed up: Polo camelhair sportcoat, cool but useless for me and doubt there's much interest

 

also saw a cool, white silk or something "Lanvin Paris" jacket, again useless for me

Is there some sort of local thrift store rumor mill?  Do employees follow the drama of flipperdom?  I don't think I've identified a single flipper in Denver, though I have seen carts stacked to the brim with Lucky Brand and stone washed Levi's.

I haven't seen any flippers in Denver/metro area either.

You would think living in a larger city, I would have come across more myself, but I can only think of 3 dudes. One is an older black gentleman who seems to only flip sports jerseys. I've actually run into him at the post office too, with a shitload of packages. Another is a younger Asian dude who always had a face mask and gloves on, his cart piled high with denim. The last one was some trashy looking white guy who always had a cart full of Nautica and Tommy Hillfiger. That used to make me chuckle. I haven't seen any of them in quite a while.

Although there is one spot I go to where there is a group of really pushy older women who sit by the door where they roll the racks out from and cherry pick shit. Super annoying and I can tell the employees get pissed about it too.

So as you all know, my duties as Cuff Link King include finding tons of cuff links. Today, I found a couple that are a bit different from the norm.

 

 

Gator/Croc with retractable chain. Never run across this style before.

 

 

 

Combo, Swiss "Colibri"  Music Box and Pill Case Cuff links

You're forgetting the tall dude with greasy curly hair and the short bald guy with a fanny pack biggrin.gif

The older guy is actually pretty nice, he's told me a bunch of info about different brands that I never even read on here. Also he gave me some rag & bone cords that he found since they were my size. smile.gif
