It's an overcoat. What exactly qualifies a flight coat? This is pretty much it from tags besides the HF tag inside and the store in Iowa it's from.

Edit - here's what it looks like

Hey guys, I've been quite swamped recently and haven't had time to thrift.  Went out once and found a handful of small items, might post photos later.  Trying to keep up with you all, but you make it difficult!

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.

Those are cool.gif, verrry nice.

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

Crazy! I wonder what went into the "pill" box...

 

 

 

Thrift fit:

 

Was attending an event I helped to organize at which many higher-ups would be present, so wore a tie even though it would normally be excessively dressy for my work environment.  The weird pose makes the break look worse than it is, for some reason.

 

Details: (Click to show)

too matchy? colors are less similar in real life and in natural light

 

 

Windy day = dusty shell

 

   Details

Blazer: Corneliani, from Brianpore

Belt: Allen Edmonds, from Westling

Shoes: Nettleton shell saddles, E-thrifted (no brand listed).

Tie: Charles Tyrwhitt, free with online deal

Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt, introductory deal (less than clearance cost)

Pants: Dockers, thrifted NWT

PS: no-name handrolled, thrifted

Anyone named Steve here? 

 

LOL,  I love old uniform shirts, this is short sleeve, Union made likely 1980's sz xl

 

Available but likely headed to Ebay for someone named Steve.

Not a flight coat but still really fucking awesome! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].giffing02[1].gifcheers.gif Even though there are over 70,000 posts, there has only been a handful for Vicuna pieces in here, super rare and from what I hear, very, very expensive.
This is a flight coat:

Ah. I knew it was something rare and expensive from this thread but didn't really know how much until I got home here since internet was spotty where I was at. Today's story short, my friend and I decided to get up this morning and leave town for the annual 100 Mile Garage Sale through Minnesota and Wisconsin. Most of the garage sales ended up being a bust but this was found in Red Wing, MN in a thrift. It was also 25% for some reason.

Is it your size? If so, I would wear that until it was in tatters. nod[1].gif

post #70062 of 121301

So day 2 of my thrifting career, a little gun shy after buying  a lot of stuff I will probably have trouble flipping. I convinced my 12 year old son to come with me by bribing him with Indian food for dinner. We talked about what we were searching for beforehand, I gave him a few names to look for Hermes and Zenga to keep and Arrow, Tommy Hilfiger, Stratford to discard. He was more into it than my wife was yesterday. We searched the entire men's section, found some interesting stuff. Being trigger shy now, I settled for 3 items leaving some Florsheim zippered ankle boots (they were made in India) and 3 Zenga ties.

 

First Item was a pair of earrings for my sons teacher who is an Eagle's fan:

 

 

  The other 2 items were a couple of ties, I grabbed them before I even knew who made them because I thought they were beautiful.

 

 

 

 

Anyone know anything about the Chanel, it is in perfect condition as far as I can see? I see a bunch of ugly Chanel's going for several hundred dollars on ebay. Is this real or just idiots overpricing them? I thought my son would choke on dinner when he looked these up on my phone. Should I send up the Spoo signal, would he deign to show up for a newbie? He did step all over my post 69999 with his super 50 suit/sc post... nod[1].gif

Derby day thrift fit. 2nd place horse ruined what would have been an epic windfall for me on the trifecta & superfecta, but Derby day is always fun regardless.
