That's a cool duck!

Here is one my father carved:

Talk about thrift synergy on such an obscure label! I stopped into their boutique in Las Vegas the last time I was there. Very cool store but their stuff is on the pricey side. That shirt probably retailed around $250-ish.


The new house has been keeping me busy. No shortage of items on my honey-do list. I've been out quite a bit, just been lazy on taking pictures for the thread. Here's a quick catch-up on the past week or so.

Recent BR suit

The missing tag is likely the only reason this Brioni polo sweater lasted more than 24 hours at one of my stops.

Hansder, size of polo? Nice finds.

 

Might try finding some nice things myself, never gone thrifting before but you guys get some awesome stuff.

Austrian coin cufflinks. This is confusing, because I don't know this coin. Normally, the back has Maria Theresa, but in this case it has Franz Josef. Any European coin guys know anything about it?

 That's pretty cool... Is there a date on there anywhere? And are you sure they are coins and not just reproductions?

 

 I've been able to find references to Franz Josef on several coins from the 19th century, but those don't quite look the same.

I thought that was weird as well! I wasn't going to even post it until I saw his. I come across it every once in awhile, but there are so many fakes. I also have a long sleeved polo from last weekend (not pictured).

Nice find on that! Also on the ties...I accidentally deleted the section as I quoted, but I've never seen a Fabergé tie. If this thread is any indication, I'll find one tomorrow. biggrin.gif

It's a size 1, whatever that means. Pit to pit is about 62cm. You should definitely go out...I'd love to see what you'd turn up! We had a Swede on here for a little while, but I think he disappeared. I'm sure people would love to see some of that Swedish military stuff that floats around your thrifts, especially the bags and boots.

I assumed they were reproductions when I bought them, but I thought I should probably check them out. The date is 1780, but that is the date from Maria Theresa and that coin was produced for years afterwards. I've also seen the same Franz Josef portrait on other coins, but it seems like it's a mix between the two. They didn't appear to be gold when I looked at them, so I didn't think much of them, just thought of wearability. However, stranger things have happened than someone making cufflinks out of rather rare coins biggrin.gif

Smart move. Cool shirt.

Hah size 1 sounds amazingly vague. 62 is a bit too large I'm afraid, thanks though. I'll go out one day and see what I can round up, maybe it'll make for some interesting posts.

@hans those zodiac cufflinks are sweet!

Thanks! This older couple had a number of cufflinks that were interesting. They were at the flea market and the man said that he'd clean out his drawers and bring some again as he's retired and doesn't need them. He found it interesting that I A) knew what they were; and B) presumably had a use for them.

No worries! Can't wait to see it! I catch up on one of the Stockholm street fashion blogs every once in awhile. It can be interesting, but there is apparently no shortage of Swedish students in goofy glasses and military field jackets running around Swedish universities happy.gif

There are plenty of them, sure, but since I myself started dressing "better," I've noticed a fair few people who are put together really well. So aside from the tragedy of overwhelmingly many "hipster" types who wear scarves indoors and hunting jackets without also carrying rifles, there are nice looking Swedes!
