post #70996 of 115203

I found 2 pair of Zanella slacks the other day and noticed they both show the fabric as 100% WV then for fabric it shows 'fleece' and idea what these are? I assumed wool, but my wife thinks synthetic like polar fleece. I appreciate the help.

Welcome doooood!

 

On that note, I have some shout outs of my own.  Brianpore, Capnwes, Ocooney, Randomore, GMMcL, Mainy and Dexconstruct are all gentlemen and scholars!  Had some great trades, purchases, gifts, all of the above from these guys.  Special shout out to OCOONEY who sent not one, not two, but three gifts!  If I find something nice in your size be sure to let me know and I'll be on the lookout for things!

Just dont get discouraged, thats the main thing. Dont lose focus. When I got to 5k, 10k, 20k... there were so many times I said fuck it and im going to buy 10 G&Gs, or Im going to buy a Rolex, or whatever. But just keep plunking dollars in there and pretend it doesnt exist anymore. Like quitting smoking, the first part is the hardest. The denoumont is the most fun.

Glad someone got that.

 

Yeah, she's the only designer that truly stuns me as an artist.

 

I've found Elie Saad and recent mainline Karl Lagerfeld, but that would be something entirely different.

 

Seeing ccp on a rack in a goodwill though... man... I had an out of body experience shog[1].gif

Thrift fit.

Thrifted J Press jacket and Express (I know) shirt. Dockers from Nordstrom sale. AE Byron's from eBay. Homemade PS. There's a bit more contrast b-t jacket and pants than is apparent on this pic. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ill be honest and say I dont know much, really anything about it. But IVH is just next level shit. She trained under McQueen, who was a fucking genius. What a shame about that.

Id say you would have better luck finding Chanel Haute Couture before IVH, even in LA.

Damn eazy, a SS would be badass. I unfortunately don't have any big ticket items to save up for so I'm just throwing proceeds at student loans. The interest rates on those are way higher than savings accounts anyway biggrin.gif.

The only exception to that is last summer. I put enough money aside to buy 2 plane tickets to LA, rent a convertible, pay for hotel rooms, drive to SF up Rt 1, and fly back to Chicago. 100% paid for by thrifting. The unexpected bonus: My girlfriend encourages thrifting smile.gif


Forgot to mention these earlier:

+1'd solely and exclusively for Ocooney.  I cannot overstate what an absolute gentleman he is.  I caution you all: do not forget the soft spoken few like Ocooney who may not have a massive board presence of others, but represents the absolute upper echelon of true gentleman on this thread.  Remember his name.  If you are a true adherent to the ORIGINAL SPIRIT of this thread (ie: pure trading without regard to "value"), do him well, and he will, without pause, do well for you.  A truly unparalleled gentleman.
