The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 5213

post #78181 of 132541
I hit a final sale for a local independent menswear store. Most things were 50-60%. They had some wings & horns chinos for $99. Lots of suits and SCs in that sale range.

But with my thrift store trained eye I managed to find the one gem: a NWT Canali. Either because of the fabric (POW check) or the size (50 (EU) L) it was 85% off retail.

I also pulled a Gant Rugger flannel for fall/winter for 60% off retail. I'm on the fence between keeping and flipping. The clincher might be that they sales clerk removed all the tags so bye-bye NWT.

Two ties from the $10 box. I've seen ties for more at the thirfts.
A Ted Baker with a vespa scooter for flipping and an Ike Behar silk/linen blend for me.

Florsheim Imperials. Can anyone tell me what kind and are they shell by any chance. My guess is not but I want to learn about this.

As a token of my appreciation I am making a donation in all of your names to The Human Fund. Now for the question... Oprphan, SC or SC'able orphan?

Thanks I didn't think so but I needed to hear it from someone in the know. Going back then.

Wow - fell 1000 posts back and finally caught up today. Great hauls, as always. Lobbs, Vicuna, great stuff all around.


I found a jacket by CP Company today along with a Kiton shirt and two PRL made in Italy jackets, perchance pics later.


But my favorite find of the week is below:

Wool/Cashmere robe, made in Italy for Carroll & Co. (N/A). This will do quite well in a few months (for the two weeks LA gets somewhat cold).

Left to right, front to back.
AE Cameron, Magnanni tassel loafers, AE Clipper boat shoes, AE Orthopedic, AE Sanford (barely worn), Bean boots, Florsheim zip boots. Not pictured - Woolrich made in USA best, BB braces.

All from one stop. I was visiting another nearby city picking up something I won on eBay:

Which is going to look amazing when I finish building my library/study.

It seems I was thrifting in Mrs. Spoo's turbulent wake today. Not that I hit that many stores, but there wasn't much left -- at least not at reasonable prices. Passed on lots of nice stuff (brioni, Hermes and Charvet ties, Mezlan shoes, sweet PRL madras) due either to condition or price. But the one that haunts me is an awesome light beige glenplaid linen Barbara by Cantarelli, I think (older label, seemed to be the line immediately preceding Sartorile). It was awesome. Overpriced, but awesome. Ended up with a pair of AE whole cuts, one Charvet that escaped the overpricing, and one Brioni tie. Disappointing.
WARNING: the following is not strictly thrifting related and obliquely invokes eBay. I would spoiler but can't figure out how to do so on my phone.
In other news, my laptop being out of commission is really starting to get irritating. Might be just the impetus I need to get my own personal backup. My distaste for Mac is well documented. But that damned Garage sale app is just about enough to tip me over the edge. Anyone got an old Mac they want to part with? All I need is internet access; I wouldn't use it for much more than listings. Anyway, if you've got one, please hit me with a pm.

I have some Steak 'n Shake coupons ready for the Midwest!


No Chick-fil-a in Oregon that I know of, unfortunately. Ate at Steak 'n Shake visiting my brother in Indiana a few years back and it was fantastic. The butter burger is a heart attack on a bun though. If your travels bring you through Eugene hit me up fistbump.gif

^That robe is the tits. Same with Eazy's gangster jacket, those are so dope.


Shout out to Put This On for a feature in the eBay roundup. At first I thought it was just my new photo setup and I got all pumped, lolhappy.gif. Crazy amount of traffic that brings.


I decided to go all out and hit a ton of stores today before I drive back for school tomorrow, and boy did it pay off (...well it hasn't paid off yet, the bank account took a serious blow today). No details until I get back and settled in, but here are some quick and dirty teaser pics. On a side note: the money I had was going to go to a camera to replace my crappy one. So if anyone wants to trade their fuji x100 for copious amounts of clothing, then get at me lol.










Does anyone know this maker? (Click to show)


It was half canvassed/ had pick stitching




And my favorite for last... (Click to show)

I have a feeling Spoo is going to love these.
