The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 4742

post #71116 of 112782

Anyone familiar w/ this label...? Cant even make out who it is "for". Soft leather shirt jacket with belt,

thought it was a woman's at 1st but buttons like a man's and tagged size 40....feels like one of those natural car chamois'

 a little research (i.e. google) seems to show Ian Mankin as a English fabric & leather supplier/weaver...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Found one in suede awhile ago. I researched as hard as I could, he does the fabric now, but in the 60's-70's (i think) he did bespoke and im sure RTW leather work, Mine was top notch quality. Apparently JOhn Lennon was wearing an Ian Mankin suede jacket when he got shot.

My luck is absolutely rock bottom. The only find I've had is another rare fragrance I found in a flea market. An unopened mini of Rochas Macassar (long since discontinued) for $2. Not quite up there with my Jules find, but not bad.

BB and Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, a swedish brand with a silly name (?), not worn summer linen coat. Can't decide if I like it, very small breast pocket

 

 

 

Acne. 501-like model

 

 

 

Polo Jeans military inspired linen shirt, really like this

 

 

The third and fourth member in my tie collection

Stopped in a goodwill real quick yesterday just to check out their suits and ties, didn't find any ties but passed on several jackets I'm not sure I should have. There was a Nordstom herringbone jacket made by Loro Piana in maybe a 40/42 I think 10% cashmere, an orphaned corneliani pinstripe which I looked quickly for the matching pants but couldn't find and a rather large j. Press navy jacket with no size info. I didn't pick any of them up but for future reference I was wondering if they would be of any interest to anyone or worth picking up. They were cheap, all between 5 and 10 dollars.

Androfan: Great haul! One day?!? That’s awesome.

JP: Please tell me it took you several weeks to accumulate all that. Ben Sherman usually equals updated cuts/modern styling, even if it is generally frowned on here. Great stuff.

Re. having a “members only” thread. When someone initially did that, I didn’t think it was a good idea. But now, I’m more and more in favor of it. I think this thread is a red-headed stepchild of SF. I think it generates the most traffic of any thread on here. That makes sense since most of the lurkers who come on here want to dress well but don’t have the coin to spend big bucks on menswear. But, in general, most of SF is a snobfest where most everybody puts you down if you’re not wearing kiton or EG. I know I’ve suggested in other threads that people save some $ on coveted brands and buy preowned stuff. That usually doesn’t go over very well, lol. It’s like suggesting to someone with skin cancer to get a suntan.

If someone were to take this up, it would be a lot of work. Setting it up, monitoring it, making sure all pix are uploaded etc. It would be a major endeavor.

Been both too busy to thrift much and also had very little luck but here's my one find in the last week

Red Wing Chelsea Boots (uppers needed a clean but soles are perfect. not available, found a new home for them)

(OK. My first spam[1].gif. Sorry)

 

Speaking of that, if any 42 Ls want to low-ball me on an offer for a sweet summer Kiton, I'm listening. Even "thrifting" housing in Germany (airbnb.com) gets expensive. Will trade for equal awesomeness in short-guy size.

The third anniversary is leather, right? My wife got me this:

Nice! Technically not leather, but you gotta let that slide. Awesome gift!

I had similar experiences when I saw Engineered Garments, Yohji, and those Gucci croc loafers.

Awesome gift and don't tempt me about the jacket. Are the shoulders really that wide though?

 

Bar prep sucks. No thrifting in weeks sucks. Reading all of your amazing finds helps me take a short break from insanity and live through you all. Keep up the awesome work.

 

For the discount minded: In an effort of panic that my vitamix was going to die and ruin my study lunch staple (motor going), I ordered a new one. PSA for anyone looking for one, they have their newest model (7500 counter height model) "reconditioned" for $399 and offer a 100 bucks for a trade in (doesn't look to require a working model, so thrift / ebay a broken one?). Call them and they will order any color despite what the website says.

 

Oh and re-thrifted a pair of sunglasses (non SF approved Oakleys) I lost at the remote campus last semester some time. I randomly remembered and asked if that campus had a lost and found and sure enough my shades were still there months later.

 

Did I mention I am procrastinating right now?

Procrastination, second only to masterbation, is the best way to fu@k yourself.
