I forgot to post this, because I usually don't pick up bags. But this Chiarugi briefcase looked pretty good. Can anyone school me on the value? Not sure if I'm keeping it.



I figure I can beautify it quite a bit and make most of the scuffs and scrapes disappear.

I believe this is what they call the "thrift synergy".

SYNERGY icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Keep staring at this pretty neat-looking Dick Paine bespoke jacket, mesmerizing working cuffs, about 40-ish ... sans pants. cloud.gif

Looked everywhere. Nevertheless, thought I might see if anyone, for some reason, would want this. It'd probably be good for it to take a vacation. It keeps....staring.


EDIT - Nice on the Hermes. I've never seen an Arizona-ish one like that before.

Too big... But at least it will support the "My Son's Preschool Tuition (and the occasional Aldens / EGs for me) Fund".

There have been some great finds here lately...

Nice bag! If you decide not to keep it, I might be interested :]

The pics aren't the best, but this is a very piece, too big for myself, so it is available! 'Interesting trades considered."!

I have a ton of shoes to trade. I wear an 11.5 E, some of you other thrifters must have some nice shoes sitting around you'd be interested in trading for. I'd most like a nice pair of penny loafers, pref. light brown (the Grensons pictured fit my bill but were too large) but I'd be interested in seeing whatever you've got. PM if you want any of these.

 

Allen Edmonds Rutland, 10 E, black, has  a rip inside the heel of the left shoe (visible in first pic)

Allen Edmonds Wendell, 8.5 E, dark brown.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Allen Edmonds Weybridge, size 8, not sure of width due to re-heeling but they are fairly narrow. Dark brown.

Alden penny loafers, 7 B/D, cognac.

Dack's wingtips, dark brown, 11 (can't seem to find a width listed in the Dack's size info). I have an identical pair in Black as well (same size and everything).

Dack's strap loafers, dark brown, waxed leather. Size 12, again can't figure out a width.

Anyone's lady want this (shirt-dress?) for cost+shipping?  I got it with some store credit, but I didn't find anything else worthwhile.  Needs the treatment.

 

 

Also hit up Marshalls - shorts & tie

A vest is on the list but prob need to get one custom made and cost almost as much as the Tuxedo itself cost.

- Isaia Tuxedo - 1 Button, Grosgrain Peak Lapel, Unvented (exactly what I wanted)
- Thomas Pink Tuxedo Shirt
- Polo Ralph Lauren Grosgrain Diamond Bowtie
- Ralph Lauren Purple Label Cummerbund
- Ralph Lauren Purple Label (Edward Green) Opera Pumps with Grosgrain Bow
- Tom Ford White Linen Pocket Square

Brian, cheers.gif mate!

Rather than finding 4 Kiton suits (let's assume, for personal pain's sake, that I went earlier in the day and was able to reunite the jackets and pants).
Now, which is the sarcasm emoticon again?


Sting? No way man. I only have 900 posts in this thread for kicks, not to find recent Kiton. I have only visited the thrift stores in the area a couple of hundred thousand times.

post #71594 of 115971

I remember why it is torturous for me to wander this thread. There is ever nothing in my size. And whenever I see anything I always wonder "Why don't I have that kind of luck when I decide to thrift shop?" frown.gif

Nataku, well done!!!  A very provocative display.  I normally don't go for such stuff, but those were pieces of art I'm sure someone could rock to no end.  Hope to see a couple on you, maybe.  Definitely a great welcome back to the thread after end-of-semester craziness.

 

Brian, great fit! I know where you're going to be x-posting...
Eddie, what a great classic tux! I think the double-breasted 6x2 is the most elegant a tux can get, with the 1-button single-breasteds close seconds.

 

Taking the derivative of a constant, regardless of value, yields zero.

 

 

UNAVAILABLE
