Been keeping up with the thread while working the last week or so. Definitely helped the 12 hour days go by! Anxious to get back to at least my local shop... Saw both a Dunhill and Barbour shirt yesterday, passed on both. Dunhill was in good shape but just didn't seem worth it. Barbour was brown corduroy and was awesome, till I found discoloration in the cuff region. Blarg. Also saw a pair of well worn shoes with what looked like the CP sole from COS. First time finding anything remotely CP like.
It's weird, I feel like there are more record flippers out, and more records coming out. I was at a shop that doesn't announce when new carts are rolling out (some do) and I found a guy sitting in a chair with probably 30 records in his lap. FML, most looked pretty minty, didm't get to see what he took with, but did check his reject stack. He asked a few employees if there was more vinyl coming out they said maybe. He ended up not being able to wait, so the next stack was all mine.
Anyway- Recent grabs
Discos non compactos
Out of the blue still has the original poster and die-cut spaceship/space station cut out thing inside in great condition. I couldn't believe they'd survived the back room.
Ties- Spoo, you need a red tie full of aces? haha
Hey why not (Click to show)
Loving the woven with a non-squared tip. Definitely going into my collection, hence not giving a fuck about the brand, though it's made in Italy. Woot. Canali was ridiculously thick, and while the pattern is a bit of a snooze, the feel/condition/colors of the fabric couldn't be left for 1.99. The VV... Any thread card sharks wanna trade a tie for a tie?
Saw this tie and while examining for internal tags...
