Find a pair of elephants and hit me up.

Had elephants once last year. Someone here snagged them in about 30 seconds.

One of the more wearable RG shirts, particular during summer. Kicker is its a size SMALL - first for the thread?


Corneliali made PRL. 32, unaltered. First time seeing a split waistband on PRL pants. Available.


On that note, I know most of you guys pass on the majority of PRL shirts. But if you see anything CUSTOM FIT in S/15 please grab, I'll hook you up (for that matter, grab any custom fit - easy flips).

Also quick shout out to shoeluv on popping my SF cherry. Met him real quick in a dark ally outside starbucks today in dirty jerz on my way to pick up some other mink coats on consignment (Christian Dior, the good womens stuff! icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif) and grabbed some shoes he just thrifted for consignment as well. Very nice to meet you sir. I look forward to your next trip to the area and we shall hit up a store or two together.


Waiting in Starbucks I saw a guy walk in with a comb over, Natuica shorts and a very tight Izod polo with massive sweat stains and I said OMG this is my French Model! Than I realized he was just checking me out and wasn't Brian rotflmao.gif

 

Since I was poaching in his territory and I actually seem to like the theory of selling on eBay more than I actually like to do the work to set up a store I gave him the 3 AE Park Avenues to sell for me. I am starting to wrack up some serious crap I need to unload, but as my wife tells me I actually only like reading about it and doing the shopping part...

 

Good luck Brian with your selling, and I will ping you next month when I am down again. fistbump.gif

I love that PRL Cotton/Linen jacket a little too small for me. I also love the purple and pink ties... I have a noob question, what do you mean when you call it Deadstock? Also thanks for the info on the Double R popover shirt.

Hi everyone! I've been thrifting for a while now, mainly for flipping, and I came across this thread last night. I've scrolled through numerous pages and love looking at everyone's finds. Thought I would post a couple of the my own from this morning. I don't normally buy shoes. How'd I do with these at $5. I don't know about the Zero King, but it is in perfect condition and again, for $5, why not.

 

Sugarcane Selvedge & Florsheim Imperials

 

Canali

Thrifted the same shirt in green a few months ago http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130840980467

PRL "Made In Italy" pants are made by Corneliani and should all have a split waistband. Should have a maker tag under the inside under right rear pocket

I do buy for myself. Most things I buy with the intention of flipping but when it fits just right, it just never seems to make it to the bay.

Are these by Thurston? I bought a pair of black braces for formalwear and they have the same content tag.
