LOL @ silverwarebandit's haul. Every frickin piece is awesome no filler there.
post #76157 of 121697
This thread has been awesome lately damn. Got me itching to thrift. Need it to be tomorrow morning... NOW!

Nat- Congrats on the Lobbs! You know you say you're always impressed by what you've found in MN. I'm beginning to think MN is the new LA- first all the Yohji now two pairs of Lobbs?!

silverwarebandit- icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif on the thrift fit and the finds! NWT Adam Kimmel x Carhart by itself insane- let alone finding it with Kiton and Isaia!

CottonDockers- Lookin' good!

Also it was a couple pages back but DeadBoy- I really like that fit. I've said this before but you should post in waywt thread!

I know Mani isn't brag worthy shog[1].gif, but I have a question on the maker.  I picked up a Made in the USA Mani to flip that seems pretty decent quality.  It is 1/2 canvassed based on the pinch test, which I haven't seen before in a Mani.  Does anyone know who made the USA line based on the tag which seems a little different?

I have to check in to say that everyone has been doing AMAZING. It's really fun to check new posts on here as it's always something crazy!

cpmac7 & Nat: Congrats on the Lobbs! Unbelievable finds and to see them pop up so close together!

silverwarebandit: Everything was great!

Congrats to all that had posted huge finds recently, I didn't want to go back and do a huge multi-quote.

Oh, and eazy, can't wait to see what that suit looks like.

In other news, my wife and I are going to be travelling to the US at the end of August through September. I'm going to PM some of you guys whose area I'll be visiting. I'm not sure what kind of time/where I'll exactly be as I don't want to make my wife go along while I nerd out with clothing people. Understandable, no? However, when I get an idea on where I'll be, I'll post some details. I actually have more time off from work than my wife, so I'm going to arrive about a week early and drive around 1,000 miles across 1/3 of the country...alone. What has two thumbs and is going to rifle through thrift stores without time constraints?

THIS GUY!

Thanks fellas. The Guidis are the 995s in donkey. Absolutely love them and they're incredibly comfortable, definitely going to look into getting some backzips in the near future if I can find a good price. And WAYWT is my daily soap opera, I'd feel weird joining the cast.

Nice fit, would have preferred a different coloured shirt or maybe even just a lighter blue, but looks solid.

Casual Friday Thrift Fit:

 

Details (Click to show)

Jacket: J. Crew (thrift)

Shirt: Gitman Vintage for Opening Ceremony (thrift)

Belt: Polo (thrift)

Jeans: Taylor Stitch 8 oz. Kaihara (not thrifted, but on a tip from Troika so it counts!)

Shoes: Vintage Longwings (maybe Florsheim (Wes), maybe Nettleton (MOL)

 

Very nice. Those jeans are 8oz? Must be nice this summer. Until recently I hadn't been able to wear jeans this month, too damn hot.

Thanks guys! The shoes are definitely a stunning find for me, especially being in Minnesota. I'm not counting on finding a pair ever again (especially in this condition) so I'm trying to soak it all in. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), they are a couple sizes too big for me (12 E and fit like a 13). Even if they fit me, I honestly don't think I'd wear them more than a couple times out of the year at most. I just don't get the opportunity to wear nice suits and shoes that often. I hope to find them a good home where they will be enjoyed.

Lol, Troika aka The Denim Head hooked me up with a pair of light Uniqlo selvedge jeans, too! Great for summer!

Hit six stores today, but it was pretty dry. Found a pair of nwt Brooks Bros chinos in my size, and this tie. Legit?

Troika lives!  

 

DeadBoy - the Kaihara 8 oz. are awesome, super light and perfect for summer. I am no denim expert, but I highly recommend them.

Shout out to ceasarc I don't even mind it took so long to ship I love the shoes
Also I bought a black belt from someone on here like 4 weeks ago and have yet to get anything or hear any update I am not mad given my own tendency for super slow shipping but if you could just pm me to l me know when it's going out...
