Yeah, you guys are EXACTLY spot on.

 

I think Mainy is pretty happy with my visit.  We ended up unexpectedly picking up two american sized SUV's full of spoils.

Thrifting in Canada sucks sometimes!

Which part of Canada are you from?

Thrifting in Canada is a different situation. You can't go out expecting to get hauls like dm7, spoo, mainy, or the other big timers in this thread have; it's never going to happen here (except maybe in Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver). If you go out with realistic expectations based on the availability of luxury brands new to your area and put in the time searching, quality stuff will turn up.

Glad it works for you!  Sorry that it was the best part of your week! :(

 

Looking forward to seeing a photo of it in action.

APC is an always must for me, regardless of size or style or gender. They sell very well.

But for the most part, bespoke is needed for 3 stud these days.
 
Kent Wang's page reads the following: 


"A proper tuxedo shirt should only have three stud holes. While a stud set will have four studs, the fourth stud is a spare. Shirts with four stud holes perhaps were made without awareness of this convention."

 

 

hope that was helpful for ya...

Hey guys, a month, about 5,000 pics, and almost 20 lbs. later, I've returned from my vaca and found almost 1,700 posts full of goodies! Wow! Over there where I went, didn't have thrift stores besides second hand furniture stores = no thrifting but I did pick up 9 Uniqlo shirts and a bad ass Italian suede loafers with Vibram rubber tire soles for less than $100. Pics to come later after jet lag gets better. I did get $1,500 spending cash for just being me. So, that's a brag?

 

Also, your run of the mill, SF approved brands are so much more expensive over seas. Example, over here, LVC selvedge denim could be had for $50 on sale. Over there, they go for $400 with no chance of going on sale.

 

Apparently, I'm a XL in Uniqlo Asia sizes...Woa...Brb, need to hang up my jeans to dry! (Click to show)

Oh yeah, I've also started to stack my jeans. So much better on some. That's it. Nothing further to report unless someone is interested in seeing the reason why I've gained about 20 lbs. in a month.

Damn, some nice shit up there fellas, good work! Nothing for me today except two nut rags.

Although, these came in the mail yesterday, courtesy of the Capt' which I'm pretty fucking excited about.

Some real nice patina on these sumbitches.
