I may have missed out on the shoes, but I was able to grab the bags.

They're available if another member has use for them.

The Kamakura is really cool. It is a hopsack that is totally unstructured. Too bad it has a small ding on the lapel that I did not see till I got home ffffuuuu.gif



Also a Yohji Yamamoto. Can anyone give me any info on this? It was cheap enough, so if it is fake it is no big deal biggrin.gif

Deadstock generally means NWT, never worn, tried on etc., but quite old.

I forgot to mention I passed on a pair of untouched Alden Shell wingtips for $275. No box, no bags, and 6.5D and that made me pause. I guess I could have opened the auction to Japanese bidders, but I really hate shipping international.

Deadstock usually means they don't make this particular model anymore.

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


Bad ass!!!!!!!!! What's the western jacket? More pics?

post #75805 of 121407

First off, big shout out to Mainy for letting me know which areas he raided Thurs/Friday so I didn't spend half my day frustrated...found a few things on my side of town and everything was CHEAP today

 

Sperry Kiltie Loafers and 2 x AE

 

 

What's up with the green label, is that the kid's label?

 

 

Is Schott an instakop? even in women's? or do you need to be selective?

 

 

 

Collection of Sport Coats...I would normally leave Zegna soft but they were under $5

 

 

 

And the interesting piece of the day

 

 

 

Crazy Deets (Click to show)

 

Pick Stitching...check

 

Ticket Pocket...check

 

 

working cuffs...check

 

Coin pocket on pants...check

 

 

 

 

 

Brand...what? (Click to show)

 

Well that's a surprise!

It's a Zero King. Not exactly high end, but I liked the look and it's in perfect shape.

Gentleman, As someone who has been thrifting for about a year I wonder what the prices are in your area. I only buy things for my own use or that of my sons. I try to buy only items made in first world countries of high quality. For instance today I got lucky and found 3 CANALI shirts at $5 each in my size in excellent condition along with a POLO cotton golf jacket for about $5. Last week I picked up my first CANALI jacket in my size for $6 which I thought was a very good deal. It takes a lot of work to find quality items in excellent condition. I usually pay $10 or less for a sport coat and $20 or less for a suit in brands like HSM or HF. However I can go to 4 thrift stores in a day while I am out and about and often find NOTHING. 

Again I only buy things to wear and am very picky which is why I have given up on EBAY. Half of the stuff I get from EBAY is loaded with moth holes or old and worn out. I go to GW or the SA or other non profit charity based stores. So far I have not gone to SAVERS which is big out here. Any thoughts or suggestions?

 

Where I'm at shirts are $3.75, sport coats $8, suits $12.   

 

And I agree about ebay. Shopping yourself you can examine items before buying.  With ebay not all are as discerning about what they pick up at thrift shops and resell as the majority of people on here are. Too many buy and try to resell every big name brand item they come across. And I'm especially leery of the ebay items listed as NWOT, especially when it's on a mannequin. You know it's likely a thrifted item so if they aren't the original buyer then how do they know it's new if it doesn't have tags? I've come across items that I could swear are new and never worn, but if they don't have tags then I can't listed it as such. 

 

Anyway, buying on ebay you just need to look for reputable sellers. Obviously shopping in person you can look over the items yourself but of course, won't have the same selection available to you unless you live in or near a large city. Just have to be patient.

Oh man... Just got two pieces that I'm really excited about...

Do I smell thrynergy?



No pick stitching but working cuffs and a ticket pocket. Sick blue velvet in a small. Deciding if the alterations needed are worth keeping it. Brand? 7FAMK.
