I think "top of the line" means something other than what you think it means.

A Pioneer Elite VSX84txsi doesn't get thrifted for $10.



That is the "top of the line" reciever from Pioneer. What you got is called a "very good" or "high end" reciever, although we'd have to do a thourough inspection to be sure it hasn't been refurbished or cannibalized for parts.

Well, probably not the highest-end model, but it was a $600+ receiver less than ten years ago. Works for what I need it for. The model is VSX-something. Stop crushing my hopes and dreams, Tokyo Prick. Edit: Found a similar one to mine on ebay, looks like they are selling for about $550-600 used. Not the same as the $2000+ models, but fine for me.

I'm sorry, I didn't know it would be so easy.

I saw a awesome dinner jacket with skinny shawl lapel and one button at my top secret vintage source. Full canvas construction, the tag said 1962. Looked like something 007 would wear. I wanted so bad for it to fit but is was 42L.

Passed on a magenta 5-button suit with metallic silver pinstripes that looked to be about a size 44XXXLong, as well as a few shirts that looked to be exact copies of the 'Latest Style' shirts off the Jantzen Tailor website.

I can go back and pick these items up if any forum members would like.

Did they have pink/white spectators to wear with the suit?

Awesome find! I'm happy with my Pioneer TX-9100 stereo tuner and SA-9100 amp I got for $10. Still ahd the original boxes, manuals, dust covers fron 1973, I think it was. Great stuff. Anyway, back on track:

Picked up a 3 button black Etro blazer with white stripes. My favorite, but the top button is missing 1/2 of it $8

- Charcoal Corneliani 3 btn suit (42R jacket and pants fit like they were made for me!)
$14.99
- Angis B. white dress shirt $6

All from the local Goodwill!

Yesterday ushered in half-price President's Day sales all across the fertile fields of Chicago's thrift stores. Visions of double monks and cashmere v-necks danced in my head as I ventured forth early Monday morning. Unfortunately it was it was not to be. 5 stores and just a Brooks OCBD and two pairs of what turned out to be too large chinos later I was back at my apartment making up a grocery list and folding laundry. Oh well...thrill of the hunt and all that..

zegna lambswool tie originally priced bergdorf goodman $140 - got it for $10 new (Marshalls)

passed on a Isaia light green cord sportcoat, working buttons, really nice material, little tiny pen spot on it - $50 (Marshalls) - could have flipped, but all set.

Stopped by TJ Maxx today and found two Charvet ties and one Bizzocchi tie, all from BG, for $30 each. This is the second TJ Maxx in my area that has had a recent shipment of Charvet ties, so you guys may want to check your local stores.

Was at my local NR, found a $625 pair of Prada cap toes for $129. Got lucky because they were stashed by the UK size (6.5) where hardly anyone looks...

I went to Montreal last week, and I was very excited to go thrift shopping in a big Canadian City. I walked into the Salvation Army (or Armée du Salut, as they called it) with hopes of getting a really warm wool coat or perhaps some swanky new snowboots, but it sucked. They had no good men's clothing. All I got was a crappy Canadian beer shirt because it was the only piece of clothing I could find with French writing on it.

This a warning to anyone who's planning on going to Montreal and thrift shopping.
