So down for the scavenger hunt.

Also, pics to come later but had a pretty great pants weekend: Rag n Bone Selvedge that look to have been worn a couple of times MAX (still stiff and starchy), Multiple Paul Smith pants that fit me (jeans and trousers), TWO pairs of Bonobos, one a 30 (think I'm keeping) another a 36 Made in Manhattan that will be available, a down filled vintage vest from Yoose (?), Charles Thrywitt (sp) Black Label Shirt (didn't even know they made these), a "Three Rivers" White denim shirt (don't know much about the brand but it had a black sheep on it and fit awesomely so I bought it); busted my Sulka cherry with my first Sulka Tie, another Brioni, a nice, recent Zegna, and an Astor & Black, staple NAVY BLUE suit made for someone who had my exact upper torso but was a bit more portly than I am (hoping that taking it in will work and then I'll be good on suits finally).

Will get some pics up after work today but I finally feel like I'm back in the game after seeing all of these ridiculous finds the past few days.

Found a couple of interesting things today, in a shop that is litterally in the middle of nowhere. These things were purchased in southeast Illinois.

First, we have a Dries Van Noten shirt. There is only the one label on the thing. No content tag, that I can find. Any ideas on how old this is? Is this a SW&D thing? Should there be more than one label? I recognized the name, but I don't know anything about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




Next, we have a Burberry London jacket. It is a really cool color/pattern, and seems reasonably well made. Perfect condition. The pockets are still basted shut. Big boy size - 50L. Other than the union label, however, there is nothing to indicate the maker. Would that suggest this is coming from Hickey Freeman? Does anybody else make for them in the US? If it were fake, they wouldn't bother with a union label, right?









Shoot me a message if you have any interest!

I'd give you a high five as a fellow thrifter / Dolphins fan / Summer-2013-bar-studying-victim, but that seems risky given this. rotflmao.gif

That Dries shirt is probably ~7 years old and is still a nice find.

That's Sarah Carter. Those images were from Dead or Alive. Yes, I saw it and it was a horrible take on the game franchise...But, I had a crush on her since her role in Falling Skies which is a kick ass sci-fi/action series! She even took time off from acting and volunteered at orphanages! inlove.gif

Weidman had Silva in trouble early, but once Silva got out of the hold and up, he shrugged off the next TD attempt pretty easily and landed strikes at will (at least that's how I remember it). By the end of the first round it was a foregone conclusion in my mind that Silva was just waiting for his moment to unload and end the fight. Instead he chose to see how far he could push the clowning. Credit to Weidman for not letting Silva get in his head. It would be a shame if we never get a chance to see Weidman perform against a serious Silva. As it is, Weidman's accomplishment can't be fully appreciated. Silva lost the fight as much as Weidman won it. Still, lesser fighters weren't able to capitalize the way Weidman did.

If this is the beginning of the end for Silva, I see it more along the lines of Fedor's triangle loss to Werdum, in that both fighters got too comfortable and forgot how dangerous their competition was (Silva and Fedor being too very different personalities of course). Franklin just had the misfortune of being in the UFC, in the same weight class, at the same time as Silva.

Now I'm waiting for Hendricks to knock GSP out. That's the upset I'm looking forward to.

Sorry to discuss this here. MMA forums are the worst.

I felt I was cheated out of a toe to toe fight that would be talked about for weeks to come...

Only a couple finds today. Can anyone help ID the Polo Bench Made shoes? They don't have the hand-written size, etc on the inside that I've seen on others.

Also found this vintage Banana Republic bush vest with the tags still attached.

Usually leave Gant but I liked this tie. Also picked up some key cufflinks that look great on my brioni shirt I thriftier a few months ago.
