I picked up a few things yesterday while in somewhat of a rush. Don't feel like going out to m car to get the other stuff right now but I have a few questions about this.
It's a nice heavy flannel with an elongated throat latch and shoulder straps. Two chest pockets cut in the western style. Is it called a western flannel?
Also, what kind of buttons are these? Their pretty nice. Not the snap kind I see on so many western style shirts.
I thrifted 2 of those - one in that colour - NWT last year. At that time I could still find the listing for it online. I'm making dinner right now but PM and ill see what I have in my records.
Edit: I'm specifically referring to the solid silver ones.

I ordered 4 and all 4 are grenadine however 1 is a different tie than what I ordered...
Spotted across the store from 100 yards I just knew I had to have it. Loved turquoise back in the day (80's)
but .....Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oh, and found this cool vintage "no name" tailored coat. It fits but going to give to my boss as it goes with his style
Going to be in Portland this weekend and next week, I won't have time to dig around the Goodwills and whatnot (plus I'd have to pay tithe to the local thrift kings), but if anyone can recommend some cool clothing stores I'd be much obliged. I know Self Edge just opened a spot there, what else is worth checking out? Feel free to PM me to keep the thread on-topic.
Totally bad ass BB 3 piece 3 roll 2. Too it has a small moth hole that I didn't discover until I got home. Anyone have a best guess on the date? There is no collar label or other interior labels and it doesn't look like there ever were. What does the "ML" stand for? Men's Long? Medium Length? The mannequin was also a pick up today after posting a wanted ad on CL.
I also check all of the women's jeans at all stores for certain designers. I proxy them for my ebay friend in Appalachia VA. She doesn't really have any influx of inventory and there is only one thrift store within a 2 hour radius. I try to send her 15-20 pairs a week to help out. It's her only source of income.
This is very cool.
You know, I think in all the years I have been thrifting, Ive only seen two other flippers in store when I was there - and one of them was when I met Brianpore. True story.
BB Label check - is this from 1972?
That's crazy! One spot I see at least one (other) flipper in store every time I'm there it feels like. I was talking with one today about all the Rick Owens he's found there, and it's always been in the women's section
