But the fit above is from the winter. Here was today's thrift fit: It was cold again here, hence the flannel trou and cashmere SC.

HF custom (for someone else; it's secondhand)
British Textiles (by Ascot Chang)
Some bespoke Neapolitain tiemaker I can't recall -- again, secondhand
Square unknown; silk
Trafalgar
Corneliani
Pantherella
Alden for Peal

 

Just want you to know I gave you a thumb for that fit, but you really ought to get the pants tapered a bit. Also, Alden makes Peal & Co? I thought Peal was always made by C&J or Sargent.

Montreal-based company where they send you several things every month, and whatever you send back whatever you don't like. Everything under $50. Unless it fits you well, it probably isn't worth it. Kind of an abhorrent business model if you ask me, but it is smart for people who wouldn't otherwise go shopping (read: most guys).

Depends on the price, but it looks like kind of a cool piece.

I came across a peak lapeled tux that I assume was custom made since it had a date label...from 1940. It was pretty worn in some areas, but had grosgrain facing and stripes. Would this sort of thing be worth something?

Is this legit?

About as ancient as they come I would say. But I was fooled by one earlier.

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.



Wow - Looks like a cool place to spend 3 or so hours crate digging! Also, sorry to hear about your losses. frown.gif

Yeah, the style of the tie and the label makes me think 70s or earlier, but I haven't come across this label yet online.

It's a large I believe. I can check when I get home.

Spoilered because the thrift tie in is tenuous at best but if you like poker... (Click to show)

A few years ago I ethrifted 400 of these from an archivist who worked for Miramax. They are the actual chips used on the set of the movie Rounders. I think that in the last few years Miramax has released the rest of the chips but at the time they were the only 400 outside of the studio.
 
The original seller had listed 200 of them in the poker chips section of e bay and was getting little action. I contacted him to make sure he wasn't sitting on thousands of the damn things and when I found out he had only 400 we struck a deal off ebay.
 
I placed a 200 chip set with a movie type collector in Texas for 12K and sold off the remaining $100 chips in two chip sets for $150 a set.
 
Or so I thought. Apparently I have one set left!

Had a productive stop at a favorite little store today. First up: A $20 Hard-bod male (that Brian will travel miles for) THRIFT THREAD SYNERGY!

 

Much smaller than my current dude, who can't wear anything under a 40. Made my day.

 

Lorenzini, Ted Baker London(what size is a 6? buttons as a mens), Nat Nast Silk, Paradise Found

 

BB Makers (TurtleTurtle), Facconable

           

 

PRL Braces - a little wear I missed in store

 

From a different stop, older PS for me in Sea Island. Real nice but sorely needs the treatment.

 

And an Oxxford tie for me as well. Woohoo.

e-thrifted these. Probably paid too much. Not too sure what I was thinking.

You know what to do with those. The Pancaldi, something else you can do with smile.gif but the others, you know.

Spoo, you should have seen the 200 chip set I sold. Had chips in all denoms from $1 to $500, most of which you never see in the movie.

 

Never played with ASM, but I sure do love my set of 500 Paulsons...   snagged them for $100 at an estate sale.
