So many shoes , so little closet space. frown.gif
post #70397 of 113237

Nothing too awesome today, but did thrift a TiVo HD with lifetime service. Took a risk as it didn't have a power cord and was sold as-is. Found a power cord at another thrift and powered it up. Had a fried hard drive that I quickly restored. Total cost, a little time to restore the operating system and $5. Happy to add it!

Love those stories. I've said it before, but if any of you find an iRobot in a shop, buy it for me! I'm about to get one retail, but if I can get one a bit cheaper, all the better.

Weird stuff on an out-of-town thrifting trip. It was as if a very large and a very small person with expensive tastes recently died in town. A bunch of well made, very large jackets (along with some "big names" e.g. Boss in the same sizes). The nicest looking stuff had the tags torn off, so no idea what they were. But I had to buy this one, in case it fits a friend of mine:

Hand stitching all over this thing, working cuffs, fully canvassed - label removed.

Then this thing was like basketball player sized, and only somewhat basketball player styled. E.g., kept it to only two buttons, but pretty gaudy on the lining. Again, no tags.


Then there was a row of about 10 of these Astor & Black jackets in small - same fabric on all of them, but different styles:

I left these on the rack! I'm pretty sure the cashier thought I was a freak, because I kept going on about how weird that row of clothes was.

Anyone know the best way to get creases out of leather?  If there is a way..

 

Cheaney

I think I have posted these before, but I took the time to clean then up and I was pleased with the results.  Are these independent Cheaney or Church's Cheaney?












Sorry I forgot to add a pic of just the heel..

Ferragamo x 3

Not in the best condition, so these will probably be heading to Tiecrafters

 

Brioni, Borrelli 7 fold

Bought these at heavy discount.  Black fleece for $17 total?  Why not






NIB Trafalgar 



Best part (Click to show)



 

BB 6/2 DB 44R.  Anyone have a 38R to trade?

I don't always pick up BB shirts, but I do when they are 100% linen

Nice find! Not many people out buying opera pumps these days.

I hit 2 places today and didn't find volume but I think I'm in the money with this motorcycle jacket. It's not a Schott but it's beat up good and had tons of character and something else going for it...






Plus, two France-themed books. Martin Walker's Bruno series is one of my favourites and I highly recommend it.

I read "A Year in the Merde" a coupe of years ago...an easy read, though the author doesn't seem to be a pro. Keep it for a long flight, you'll chuckle at a few parts.

Me too! I went what seemed like a few months without anything, than Paul Stuart by Grenson, Peal & Co by C&J and Nettleton whole-cuts all in the same week. And of course the vintage LL Bean Polo's from Wes. We'll call those a thrift assist. fing02[1].gif

BTW, LOTS of nice shooze up there fellas! Keep up the good work!.

P.S, anybody here a 43L and want a badass summer weight BB gun-check SC with triple patch pockets? If so, hit me up and I'll go see if it's there tomorrow. It was really cool and now I'm kind of regretting not snagging it.
post #70409 of 113237
Only had time to hit a few places today.

Loro Piana 50% Cashmere Sweater, fits like a glove. This is in the running for my best find in the sweater/shirt category.




Pendleton Button Down Size M - Available


Hickey Freeman Suit, Flat Front (unavailable):
AppleMark


Tie for me. I have another HF tie I bought recently and it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. I like the construction and width.
AppleMark



Corneliani tie w/ matching square. The square had no price tag so they threw it in with the tie. Edit: might keep, not sold on it yet but I'm contemplating. Possibly available in the near future.


eBay if nobody here wants it. 2.75" width.
