I'll ease your mind; it wasn't even close. If they had been there they wouldn't have even made it out onto the floor! Haha!

One of my favs the Jayhawks are also from Minneapolis. Also the Replacements.

Maybe this stuff belonged to Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum? If there was ever a dude I could see rocking this kind of stuff to be cool....it would be him.

i dont haveanything worthy to post until the thread cools a little. But I wanted to share this pic of a goodwill near by. In Miami graffiti is a fine art.



Transplanted Banksy???

Feel small compared to some of the above, but I'm hoping my luck is changing.

Paul Smith London silk pocket square
Paul Smith London cufflinks, in box
Vintage silver cufflinks from India, showing the goddess Lakshmi on a lotus flower. Very intricate work, quite nice.
2 x Brooks Brothers shirts (yawn, but they're staples I can use)
Canali tie, new

and for my good lady

NWOT Lanvin purse
2 x full testers of Harajuku Lovers perfume.

Saw a very nice Hickey Freeman suit (very rare in these parts) but too big for me, so I left it.

Pirner's still solidly a flannel man

Not Banksy...it's Blek le rat.

You can see it on the suitcase.

 

Still very cool.

What's sillier than ignorant comments like these?
back handed compliments...

Nat won.. just leave it at that fellas...
I don't think TonyL's comment was meant bachanded. I certainly didn't mean mine that way. I am genuinely happy for Nat, and as I said, I see the aesthetic value and artistry in the items. But its still not my style. Its like any art: I don't undertand nor would I put in my house many modern pieces, but I am still impressed by and appreciate many of them. That's all I was getting at: are they merely objects du art (spelling?), or are they intended for daily use. I now have my answer, which is why this thread rocks.

He was only flannel after her saw Kurt....that dude was a hipster before the term was coined.

Your post didn't come off like that. It was more of curiosity than. "Oh it is ugly shit because I don't understand. I guess I am happy for you" which was what homeboy did. I hope this makes sense because I am using a phone to rspo d and my phat phingas make it difficult

Congrats, Nat! Couldn't have happened to a better dude.

This thread continues to rock along. Consistent solid finds along with the occasional explosion (thrifted Ferrari, Nat's SWD haul). And, no detours into gun rights or the efficacy of using USPS stuff to pack our packages nod[1].gif Great job.

Congratulations, Nataku. worship.gif I would have required smelling salts and new pants.

Amazing haul Nat. Congrats.

I had a much more meager haul this week, but a few firsts:

Ties:

Zegna, Rubinacci, HF and Tom Ford (1st TF piece for me)

And I picked up this women's rain coat with detachable hood and sleeves based solely on the Prada zipper pull.
Any info appreciated and it's available.


Also picked up a pair of Paraboot shoes, my first, as a beater pair for the rain and a Trafalgar belt in my size.


Finally, shout outs to Noob and GMMcL for some really awesome trades. Thanks guys.

Just a few things from this week...

Hugo Boss 70/30 cotton/linen seersucker jacket
AppleMark

La Martina polo shirt
AppleMark

Etro polo shirt
AppleMark

H&M collaboration with Comme des Garçons women's blouse. A few years old I think.
AppleMark Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Charles Tyrwhitt pants
AppleMark Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This tie cost next to nothing. I only got it because I was curious. The keeper is gone and it doesn't say Versace on the lining, but is it anything? I see tags similar to that on some Versace and Gucci ties, so I just thought I'd get it to see if I could find out...knockoff? Real? Just another no-name tie?

Hans that is a Versace content tag but I dont think Versace as the ones from that era would have the Gianni Versace woven in the back taffeta in the tie blade.

GMH Im 50/50 on the Burberry

Blek le Rat is awesomesauce and I wish I was 16 in the middle of Miami.

DM7 did you find any Van Herpen yet?

Nat are you parading around MN in full goth Ninja?

How many people have booked flights to MN based on Nats haul?

Im about to go out into the field

In a Ferrari

Dont know why Im writing Haiku style

But these are the days of our thrift lives
