The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 4893

post #73381 of 125336

Mad dash to pick up my car from the dealer after work (I brought it in last week for new brakes - the lot jockey was bringing it around and RAN INTO ANOTHER CAR IN THE DEALER PARKING LOT), so, I had to bring it right back and get minor bumper work & paint...  That done, mere minutes until GW closed, managed to find one nice Sid Mashburn shirt (this time with no ripped seams, like the last one I found there).  Off to Marshalls and TJX - TJX had nothing, but Marshalls had a rack full of Jack Spade bags on clearance (odd, since they never had them on non-clearance) - mostly the blue waxworks that retail for $375, marked down to $99.  One heavy duty canvas with leather top flap / handles / trim (sort of Filson clone) marked down from I think $495 to $129 but the leather had some discoloration.  And one of the coated canvas map-bag size which I picked up.  Anyway - just a heads up if you're looking for a decent messenger to beat around with - they're not all that bad.

Rive-Gauche was the YSL ready to wear line wayy back. I'm not so sure about the quality or the desirability, though. I am, however, confident that it is NOT a licensed label.

This evening I found one little confection for ebay and then laid in some stores for fall/winter listings.

Burberry bucket hat




Sweet (and minty) 1960s HT in a rusty barleycorn.




Beautiful James Bay parka with arctic fox accent on hood.

Bingo!

 

 

 

Louis, Boston
234 Berkeley Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116
( 617/262-6100 )

 

It is virtually impossible to overpraise Louis. It would be a great store anywhere. It happens to be in the original Boston Museum of Natural History building on Berkeley Street in the historic Back Bay, a block long and four floors high of the world's best clothing. The store also offers valet parking, Cafe Louis (presided over by master chef Michael Schlow), a hair salon and a women's department. Louis is all light and spaciousness: eggshell-tinted walls, pale hardwood floors and high ceilings, brass railings and gallery-style lighting. Here and there one finds the occasional Cognac-colored leather club chair. The shop areas within the store are meant to showcase the best of contemporary international styling: Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, Dolce & Gabbana and Vestimenta, Zegna, Anthony Tarassi, Industria, Dries van Noten, Romeo Gigli and Prada. Shirts by Lorenzini and Luigi Borrelli, shoes by Sutor Mantellassi, Paraboot, Kenneth Cole and others. There is also a "Louie" private-label collection of Neapolitan-styled suits and sports jackets in exceptionally refined fabrics, accompanied by shirts and ties in small antique patterns and sophisticated dusty tones. This is classic, confident, international clothing for the next generation of CEOs.

Thanks for all the recommendations gentlemen! I should've worn shoes, and this is going to the tailor for some TLC, it is double vented, forgive me for the lighting though.

Fairly certain that's fake based on the stitching and how poorly the patterns are lined up.

Hey Seattleites: I'm going to be visiting for one day this weekend and will likely have four or five hours to kill downtown. Any recommendations of cool stuff to do—shopping or otherwise—would be greatly appreciated.

I went to Gamestop today to trade most of my old games and got The Last Of Us for only $30 something! That's a brag, no? That game is off the hook! Any gamers in here? Know what I'm talking about, right?

I miss being a gamer. That one looks awesome.

Saw this makers tag tonight - is it anything good?

Woah, I just watched some clips and read a review for that. Makes me wish I still had my PS3. I was a huge fan of "The Road".

With the PS4 and Xbox One around the corner, I'm sure you can pick up a PS3 on the cheap when those bad boys drop. Dude, did you see the scene where some dude gets a machete to the forehead and then gets decapitated? I always shit my pants seeing that scene! Fucking awesome!
