I bought one of the $550 ones and had a $20 off code from them...ended up about $100 shipped.

My first thrift fit (mostly)

 

Brooks Brothers suit (Thrifted)

Brooks Brothers shirt (Thrifted)

EZ Tie (Thrifted) (Not sure what is going on with the knot there, but lets pretend it is the beautiful 4-in-hand I imagined).

 

AE Franciscans (AE Sale)

 

I am not sure on the fit, the pants break nicely in front but to me they ride up too high in the rear. As you can see from the gray in my beard I am kind of a traditionalist so I think pants should hit the top of the heel in the rear and break once in the front. Jacket sleeves may be okay may need to be let out 1/4", would need the waist taken in a bit. You can't tell in this picture, but the suit is a really nice Navy with a great pattern of light blue checks.

Then found this Large vintage varsity jacket - NWT. Any idea on the age on this as well?

And to top things off, a pair of Martin Maison Margiela side-zip boots. Mainline, not the H&M version. Pretty sure these are the ones that retail for around $1,000?

Wow, nice haul!!

That Nike rugby should bring in some decent money. I'd say early 80's (1980-84-ish). The varsity jacket is probably late 70's to mid 80's.

Those MMM boots are killer! bounce2.gif

Here's my contribution for today. It followed a theme of quality, not quantity. Both are currently unavailable.

NWT Mulholland Brothers leather backpack w/ dust bag.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Not MMM, but some nice Frye Oliver boots.

Pretty good day today.

Kilgour bespoke, dated 2008. Not the absolute peak of the Row, but it fits like a glove, so happy with that.




Zegna DB charcoal chalk stripe, EU52. Bit big on me, if someone wants it.



Quite rare to find Castangia in Melbourne. This is a very nice navy pin stripe, size EU56



Some nice silk pocket squares, including a NWT Paolo Albizzati


Caron Troisiemme Homme shaving cream. Only a mini, and sadly not much left


NWT PRL socks


Enzo Rossi messenger bag. The good lady has already pressed this into service.


Not at the op shops, but I grabbed this haul at a local perfumery sale.

L-R Dyptique Eau L'Ente, Tommi Sooni I tester, Parfums d'Empire Cuir Ottoman tester, Parfums d'Empire Fougere Bengale, Parfums d'Empire Azemour tester, Tommi Sooni II tester, John Richmond for men, Costume National Scent Intens

Prices were unspeakable. The Pd'Es were $15 for the testers and $10 for the sealed bottle. Deep discounts on the rest too.

Now that you've mentioned it, I should start looking at that sort of stuff. Very narrow when it comes to looking at things I'm aiming to buy unfortunately. I was hooked by HIM when I saw wings of a butterfly during one of my insomniac MTV marathons.
