Local resale shop having a 1/2 off sale today & tomorrow; they have a designer rack where everything is priced top-end, so now was the only time it makes sense to shop there.  Only got a few things from there:

 

Dunhill engineered fit shirt

Edgar Pomeroy handmade bespoke puppytooth jacket, working cuffs.  They had another Pomeroy jacket and 2 or 3 full suits (all with working cuffs); contemplated getting them as well (or maybe going back), but even at 1/2 price they are a bit of a risk.

Zegna Trofeo jacket, working cuffs.

...also went to GW nearby and picked up:

 

NWT Orvis shirt, and a book to go with it

Denon AVR-590 A/V Receiver.  Only a few years old - has 1080p HDMI in/out, 375 watts total, 5.1 surround.  One of the nicer modern receivers I've come across at GW, and I'm a Denon fan in general so it's an autokop for me.  Needs a cleaning but it works.

Made an early morning run to a few stops - wanted to get out and stretch my legs in the car before the cops came out to hunt. Found one donor who was a 16 neck who gave up about 25-30 Hilditch & Key staple shirts. Some with cufflinks in them still. Sweet! If anyone is a 16, let me know. Ill be in the pool drinking the rest of the day though.

Noice. I have completely failed to make ANY 7/4 plans, and will end up just grilling a steak with my sis. Could be worse. Meanwhile, I've been inside all day, photoing, researching and listing thrift finds! I still need to perform my most important Independence Day ritual: drinking a beer on the sidewalk!
A free man in a free country should not fear prohibitions on drinking in public!

Dang, amigo! You're becoming the Thrift Thread Research Librarian! Nice work!

Just a couple things.

 

Gant by Michael Bastian A/W 2010 chambray

 

 

Fat guy party animal shirt, just in time for the weekend

Can anyone help me figure out who makes (made?) this Barney's New York coat? There is no fabric tag. No one would just sew a Barney's tag into a jacket made by someone else, right? (I'm paranoid because it turns out the Ebbets Field Flannel jacket I copped recently was just a Dickies jacket that they had sewn letters on.)

BB Fleece is made for children. That's why you see the size difference.

Vintage [that collar loop tag is pretty old].  I'm sure it's quality vintage and you can enjoy it for years to come.  I'd have picked it up for personal use as well.

With the temperatures rising it seems the pickings have evaporated around here. Or maybe I'm just more discerning, for myself and for flipping.
I found this Canali tie this evening, complete with a price tag sticker inside the blade. It was $135 new. I'm not sure what year that would date it to. Still, it'll be nice for winter with a tweed.

That tie's fantastic IMO.

Three years in a row I have shot a opossum in my back yard on the 4th of July. I can get away with firing my 20 guage within borough limits since the air is filled with the sound of fireworks and other random gunfire. I have a few more listings to do tonight, but after that....I'm gonna try to make it 4 in a row.

I had Sam Adams' Summer Shandy today. shog[1].gif

Here are some shots of what is going on at Marshalls re: theft of high-end items. 

 

Arrow jacket with label ripped off. Replaced with Armani label and tags.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Armani label poorly sewn on.

Original label removed.

 

 

 

 

$50 jacket returned for $400

 

Calvin Klein (I think) jacket with Zegna label.   This is the jacket I reported to Marshalls management a few weeks ago.  They put it back on the floor!  I couldn't believe it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Zegna. Poorly sewn label on the wrong side.  Made in Indonesia .  Suspicious?

 

 

 

 

 

$100 jacket returned for $1000

 

 

Armani shirts with retagged prices.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

MSRP on both original tags has been scratched off.  These are just standard Amani Collezioni cotton dress shirts.

 

 

 

$150 shirts returned for $600 each.  There are at least 5 of these that I saw.

 

I notified management again today and the store manager basically dismissed me.   It's one thing if she doesn't care that someone is stealing thousands of dollars from her store, but I think it's pretty egregious to put what is essentially a counterfeit piece back on the floor after being notified.   I'll probably write a letter to corporate.
