REAL SILVER 

 

 

How much do y'all think I'll get?

Do you know the name of the shirt?

Never seen this white label before.... Age?? Not that it makes it special or anything.

Fully canvassed cotton "wash & wear" was kind of odd combo though.

Alright... I'm gonna try to keep up in here again, and I've actually been thrifting a little bit again. Let's see....

 

I e-thrifted this from eBay in preparation for Fall

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also e-thrifted this Trafalgar crocodile belt that wasn't listed as croc

 

Thrifted this BB made in Italy with Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric. Between losing weight and BB's generous cuts this fits me

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Picked up this really nice tweed from a no-name store brand... fully canvassed with a hand-stitched collar. Fits great.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'd appreciate some feedback on these. I picked them up and they looked unworn but very dusty. After a good cleaning they look brand new. I'm thinking these are old Allen Edmonds when the Rancourts were making for them, but there's no brand tagging. They're mocassin construction with hand-stitching, a Vibram sole, and a beveled waist.

I picked this up today not thinking it would fit, but for some reason it does. Anyone know who makes in Italy for Dunhill?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also picked up this J Crew unlined, unstructured madras, size medium but it fits like around a 40R, so too small for me

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some nice Fall ties (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Less brag-worthy stuff for me (Click to show)

Non-non-iron BB OCBD

 

 
I like the slim cut on these Lands End seersuckers

 

 

Adding another pair of cream linen pants 'cause why not?

That BB Madison suit is really nice!

The Dunhill is made by Zegna (older label)..... I think.

They all look to say "grain" which would be a calf grain and not "genuine"

+1 on what Brianpore said. They are just embossed on calfskin to look like gator. Still, for $1 each I couldn't complain.

still on my to cop list...

café racer

drapetastic viscose t's (thanks for the pm deadboy)

vintage boro Japanese visvism style peasant farmer trill indigo dyed fabric to make into a patchwork pillow of epic proportions

Hmmm....IDK...As much as I'm a fan of RRL, I can't help but to feel they are overrated...I've just picked up a RRL OCBD for above thrift prices and I'm just not thrilled with the quality...Shoot, call me a fan boy but I would just save the money and go through Gustin for a pair or two.

 

Cafe racer...As in cafe racer leather jacket like the ones Members Only makes? lol

Dang! Yeah, Spurrs are nice, too.
Oh man. I'd be all over that but it's too big for me too. frown.gif Wonder why it runs so large. Usually this type of stuff runs slim. Thanks for thinkin' of me, though!


Found some cool stuff today. Everything is available.

Scored some nice NWOT Martin Dingman belts for peanuts.

I get a lot of these. The jackets do well on their own too, because of the casual styling. They were available in 2 button and 3 roll 2. With flap pockets, full patch pockets or flap patch like you have. I have seen them in tan, beige, gray and sort-of fatigue green. I assume there are blue ones out there, but have yet to see one. I have 5 or 6 right now. I even have one in the laundry room for a trial run. I think they are 1950'-60's but I have never been able to say for sure.

I found a very, very similar Polo Italy in a thrift. I too cannot wait for fall and just hope it gets cold enough down here to wear that all day everyday.

Very interesting, in the last couple months I've thrifted that same suit twice in like new condition. One gray and one blue with the Vitale Barberis Canonico in the Madison fit, same size...
