Is there a Brianpore signal?
post #70533 of 110330
Only 1 decent find today. Available for trades: real leather buttons, working button holes, still basted shut. Wish it fit

1-2 labels ago

Does it say "100 % Bijan" on another label somewhere?

 

Also, you can look to see if it's D'Avenza or Attolini. 

 

It was D'Avenza -> Attolini -> D'Avenza timeline wise (Attolini got pissed at Bijan's markup or something)

It's not mine. Yet.

 

I'll let you know if I snag it.

Anyone interested in a Loro Piana down vest? Reversible. One side is quilted, the other is plain. One side is ivory, other is off white. XXL, but closer to a XL/L.



HIT ME UP.

Not a thrift find, but snagged off the bay for a ridiculously low BIN price.

 

Brooks Brothers/Peal & Co. Double Monk Leather and Canvas Spectators.

I believe these are the Cooper Monk by Alfred Sargent.

 

That sidewall script is Alfred Sargent...right?

Bruno Magli (13D)



And lest I forget my cycling roots: a CSC team jacket and Castelli bib knickers LNWOT).

Valentino + Versace are fake. Dunhill looks like it too.

Lord almighty Wes. THe Thrift Shoe Czar. Question for you below.

Ducking in for an update. I've been crazee lately, trip to Austin on business last week, was able to hit 7-8 thrifts off hours like this thing:



Where I found my first Alan McAfee's, in my size.



Thanks CesarC, that Canali came back nice from the tailor. Me on the job in the McAfee's but forgot to pack my damn pocket squares.

Also am getting into vinyl now because of you freaks. Been picky picky picky at thrift stores, the sifting is not getting me much, ha. Except for some extraordinary classical recordings -- am astounded at the 4-record boxed sets on good labels (Angel, Deutsche Grammophon, etc) shrinkwrapped for a buck. That's where the value is in thrift store vinyl up here at least it seems. A lot of Mitch Miller and Ray Conniff and Montovani Orchestra and Barry Manilow to sift through. Someone crapped a ton of Herb Alpert, Al Hirt and Greek folk LPs in all our SAs and Goodwills up here. But a few things can be grabbed among the dreck.

However this place was like a shot of music heroin, OMG it basically bled me of the few Spoo profits I had sitting around ha burning money on Jimmy Smith and Ramsey Lewis and all manner of vintage keyboad jazz and soul-jazz and O yeah a couple PRestige-Era Miles records I adore. And blues, too.



Public service announcement: Hug your hounds, if you have one, and your dad, if he's still around. Lost my dad yesterday, and one of our hounds, Milo, this morning. Both were quite elderly and in failing health, these were not surprises or tragedies...and I am not looking for a big string of sympathy replies or PMs. (Facebook and coworkers and fellow churchgoers are overflowing...and I have a massive extended family. Much support & commiserating. I'm all set. Like, really.) Just reminding you gents, know what you've got before it's gone. Don't get caught up on your own personal treadmills.



So Wes (or anyone else who chooses to chime in), getting to you: where would you rank Wright's Archpreservers on the quality spectrum? I picked these up because they were in really nice shape and were 9Cs, which when I find them typically turn out to be my perfect size for long tromps around trade shows, which my Fitbit says sometimes add up to 10+ miles of walking in a day. Just curious. The soles are super thick but not all leather inside (canvas in the front, leather in the back).

Sorry for your losses. I haven't seen my family over 2 years until my recent trip. I didn't realize how much I miss them until I got back from my trip even though living with them is difficult due to personality differences.

That's incredible!

Bro, I don't think Dunhill has the "dot" on the "i" in their logo.

Nope, Valentino and Versace are real, but ancient.

I think the Dunhill might be the fake in the group. The main tag says 100% cotton, but there's a second tag that says 70% polyester. Guess its going back to Savers!
