Was a time not so long ago I would have grabbed these ugly old Armani ties...today, pass.

post #76202 of 117986
Might as well get in before Spoo blows us away. Just a couple staples for meself. PRL made by hand, BB Makers, Burma Bibas multifold (no idea if 7 or 5 or whatever).



I know PRL is nothing fancy, but I'm happy. Looks/feels properly NWOT, nice bright colors.

The oddest thing I left was a fugly Gucci tie... With a Tiecrafters keeper on the back. Pretty sure someone got it trimmed into a skinny tie.

Question: local Marshalls has a proper Dior (plain "Dior", with Dior tag) silk tie, made in Italy, on clearance for $29, and "compare to $110" though I think it was likely more than that originally...but it was a very boring brown & something diagonal stripe.  Should have kopped?  Was not Slimane or Dior Homme or any such thing.

  

One GW stop today while running errands - passed on those 4 Armani ties posted a bit ago, well as a gang of PRL / BB ties that all had some slight food blotch or whatever (I'm done trying to clean ties unless they're worth it).  Did pick up a scant few pieces:

BAPE, made in Japan...but it appears these are still not the BAPE I am looking for. 

 

 

 

 

Oxxford, needs some work (missing button and a couple spots I think will come out) 

 

 

5 ties: Paul Smith, John Henry (a brand I'd never grab, but the English Saxony wool was nice), PRL silk/wool blend, BB, and Robert Talbott seven fold.

While it doesn't say "Dior Homme" - it is. Their ties are nothing to write home about construction or quality wise, but there is definitely is a market out there for them due to the name. If its a reasonable color/pattern, you should have no problem flipping it if thats what your intent is.

Is Dior Homme really that desirable (besides the obvious suits, jackets, etc)? I had 3 really cool pairs of Dior Homme black trousers, one with a jeweled waistband. All 3 pair failed to break the $30 mark. I was super disappointed. Fairly normal sizes too.

Thank you for your reply and the info - yes, would be to flip as it wasn't my style. Will be passing by tomorrow and see if it's still there.

Next time start with a high price and wait.

Went out with SF member Nell today. All around great guy, and I'm glad to say he found his first pair of shells while on the beat with me. Not too much for me, however, but I did find this tie. A little digging showed me that this is from a tiny custom tie maker located near the Parthenon in Rome. How it ever made it's way to a hood thrift store in Chicago, I'll never know.

Greetings, gentlemen! 

This is my first time posting on this thread. I've been lurking for about a month now, and would have  posted sooner but I made myself wait until I had something worth posting. Yesterday, I came away with the biggest haul in my thrifting career (about a year and a half now, still relatively a noob haha). So, without further adieu, my finds from yesterday (sorry for iPhone pics).

 

Shoes:

Banana Republic. Not the nicest shoes ever, but they fill a hole in my wardrobe and were $3! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

My first ever pair of Allen Edmonds! Georgetown model, they also fit and fill a hole. 

 

Ties:

J Press, PRL, Michael Kors. Nothing to write home about, but not too shabby. Would have been kinda disappointed if this was all I found tie-wise, buut.....

 

I walked into the next store and found eight BNWOT Brionis.

So yeah. That was exciting haha. 

 

Shirts:

Neither of these are great, (Geoffrey Beane, I know, I know, but I need a shirt like that I can wear into the ground. The Nautica is french cuffed, for my dad)

Faconnable x3

 

Trousers:

x2 pairs of Express chinos and some sweet flannel NWT Banana Republic, again to wear into the ground.

 

Jackets:

3-roll-2, brown herringbone with a faint check pattern, fully canvassed.

Anybody ever heard of this brand?

Sorry for the sideways pics. I see that Jeffrey Banks is a brand that sells crap suits on Overstock these days, but this thing is fully canvassed, quite a bit of handwork. Made in the USA, with the old union sticker. Interesting.

Vintage H. Freeman and Sons MTM (back when they were in Philly), 3-roll-2, fully canvassed and half lined! Feels so nice! Needs a little bit of tailoring but it was $2.50 icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. Medium brown check.

My first Hickey Freeman. Fully canvassed, pretty old but classic.

 

100% Silk Burberry, old label. Half canvassed.

 

This one threw me. I wasn't expecting it. Black (ew), made in Italy, three button, ticket pocket, roped shoulders, loads of handwork, full canvass. 

And...

Yes. Gucci by way of Zegna. It's an orphan, I'm going back to look for the pants a few more times. It fits me, but I'm hesitant about keeping because I dont like black suits... Still. I'm pretty excited. 

 

Another first for me.

I can't find the trousers to this one either! baldy[1].gif Gonna keep looking. It's gorgeous though. 

 

Suits:

Southwick for Nordstroms, 2 button, fully canvassed but not much handwork (I don't know what I was expecting, really).

Not too shabby.

 

And finally. The last suit I touched yesterday. I wasn't expecting anything else. Wool and Cashmere PoW, 3 button. As soon as I touched it I knew it was nice...

But I wasn't expecting to see this!

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Pretty stoked.

Sorry for the long post, but I didn't think you gents would mind haha. Cheers!
