only 5-7 years?  thing is right well filthy for not being very old...dude must have worn it a lot.  

 

thank you, and the other folks, for chiming in - another find from today that strayed from my norm of sport coats.

Hello,

 

YSL did have a good thing going, then leased the name (for lack of a better term) and churned out a lot of junk.  That said, I do not know if that particular YSL tie is good YSL or bad, but I never pick them up because 99% of what's out there is the bad - if someone knows for sure, they will speak up.

 

Those are not the RRL you're looking for...RRL only says RRL, not Ralph Ralph Lauren.  Chances of finding real RRL in a thrift is slim to none, but it has been done. 

  

The 7FAMK jeans you might flip for a profit - depends on size and condition, as well as where they were made.  You'd need to also measure inseam, rise, and leg opening...and outseam too for good measure.  Inseam is measured from the crotch where the two leg seams meet the seam going up the middle.  Outseam is the seam on the outside of the legs - state whether it includes the waistband or not.

 

Givenchy: same as YSL - there is good, and mostly bad, and I don't know between the two so I personally avoid.

 

Bill Blass - that's older / 80's maybe?  But being 100% cashmere might just score you some dollars if you're planning to sell...listed as "vintage cashmere" and downplay the Bill Blass as that's a pretty old tag.  I have learned to almost never buy a sport coat without a size tag unless it's something truly desirable.  I have left Italian Armani's behind at the thrifts (which are more common than one might think) because of a lack of size tag...people just want them to be sized, along with detailed measurements.  

 

Speaking of measuring, I'm sure someone here can tell you how to measure well, but feel free to check out a listing of mine which explains how / where I measure as well as includes a little diagram of where I measure (not pushing product here, just an example).  

 

This was great information. Thank you so much.

Howdy all. So I've lurked for a while now and I've gained a lot of knowledge on what to look for in a thrift. This is my first time posting a thrift haul and I'd like feedback on how I did. Everything is available as well and I can take more pictures if need be. These are phone camera pictures because I can't find the camera cord to upload pictures to the computer.

 

YSL tie.

Is this the "RRL" Ralph Lauren I see talked about here sometimes? I found another pair that had the same tag but it was made in China so I passed. Can anyone give a rundown on exactly how Ralph Lauren names work? 34x30

7 for all Mankind jeans. 34 waist. No length marked. What points do I measure for the length? Top to bottom?

This is my more curious find. I don't know much about Bill Blass as a brand but it's 100% cashmere. No size available on the jacket but it's quite big on me and I wear a 38. I figure about 44.

I'm quite new to all this like I said and I'm doing my best to learn. I spent about 20 dollars on everything (with a couple more things for myself as well) and would appreciate feedback on these items.


Sorry, dude, that's not the RRL you've been looking. Bill Blass is no good, either. Lord & Taylor sells low to mid tier men's wear. 7 Jeans and the Givenchy are not good either. But, welcome to the thread and hope you will learn lots just like all of us. =)

I've had buyers "dazzled" by the Lord & Taylor label - sold a cashmere sweater tagged only as L&T for good $ - for some reason the name draws in some folks.  I might have picked it up as well, being "vintage 100% cashmere"...heck, I bought a Jos. A. Bank the other day, which I never would have save for it was 100% silk and some people believe JABank stuff is "quality".

glad to help. the owner probably wore it for daveing (prayer) at 3 times a day, not to mention general wear. jewish hats get a lot of wear and hence get dusty and worn out very quickly.

Some whimsy for this evening.

My 10-year-old daughter, who's super stylish, wanted to get a tie for herself. I sent her into the kids section and she came back with three. Two were small, like 16" (maybe made for babies?) but this was the one we decided on. It's kids sized and made by Dockers, but it's 100% silk. Not bad for a first outing. She spent some time this evening going through my collection. I told her Ralph started with ties.

Is Hickey Freeman universally good? I've come across a few and passed a couple up because I just wasn't liking the feeling of the suit. Got one recently because it was one of the rare that wasn't orphaned, but I don't dig the feel.
