I became momentarily depressed this week when I saw at a thrift the same leather jacket for $30 that I had bought at a local menswear store years ago for hundreds and hundreds (and not even on sale). Oh well, I've learned my lesson.

It'd been dry here but I did find a few small things today.

A brand new sanforized replacement shirt-point shirt collar (16 1/2). It's definitely from a more can-do era: the instructions are simply remove the old shirt collar and sew the new one one.






Some vintage safety glasses. I'm thinking of making them into sunglasses with prescription lenses.

SWMBO has me on the lookout for winter coats for her in a variety of colors. I found this wool Pendleton in her size but there's a fairly large moth buffet in the vicinity of the red arrow. The thing is, she prefers shorter coats. Does it look like a tailor could shorten it to car coat length and delete the holy parts for not a lot of cash?

Only $5 during half off the yellow tag week.

i had some nice finds today, hopefully the beginning of the breaking of the dry spell. pics later or tomorrow.
i passed on 4 holland and holland polo shirts in various colors. priced in the teens of dollars. not my size; i think they were medium or small. also passed on two j press and one tippler tux shirt, similar pricing. if anyone wants a proxy, lemmeknow.

Sorry, but nothing is available and I can't respond to requests for sizes or measurements.

RLPL lambsuede shacket - the reason I even pay attention to suede in thrifts is because I once saw a RLBL suede shacket in a Marshall's for a reduced price of $900. Happy to find the RLPL version in pretty much the same condition as the new RLBL one.

Two "Made in Italy" cashmere / silk blend sweaters w/MOP buttons. Unfortunately the label tags have been cut off. Do these look familiar to anyone?

I am looking for a database of European manufacturers numbers but for USA and Canada use this website:

I buy items with the tags cut out all the time. Just picked up 5 Louis Vuitton Uniformes black jackets for my lady. $9/each!

 

Bye,

So I made a makeshift rolling rack to help with my steaming and organizing. Here she is, just a few pipes from Ace Hardware, boards and stain from Home Depot and some metal casters makes a movable eBay machine!

That's a thrifters champaign bucket holding my ties smile.gif

Hey, welcome back! Also, not sure if anyone replied, but that's Zegna.

Interesting. Is it sturdy? Cost for materials? The cheap ones I have from Target and Walmart are ok but not for a lot of heavier items. Ikea had some for $10 I intend to check out.

That's awesome. I've been wanting to make something like this for a while now but haven't gotten around to it at all.

I have two of these:

I'm sure that MZ's was cheaper and likely just as sturdy, but I am not very handy, and so paying $70 and having it delivered was worth it to me. Don't waste money on Walmart-or-equivalent cheapies. They hold virtually nothing and are prone to collapse after a dozen or so dress shirts. You can stuff these puppies with the heaviest tweed overcoats until they can hold no more and you're still good to go.
