GMMCL schooled me on how to up my thrift game.  So, I hit up one of JpMorris favoriate thrift store here in dallas (Genesis Benefit thrift store). Because of him I was late to class.  And spent funds I shouldn't have.  But these pieces should meet the entry level standard.

Zenalla Trousers 
Hiltl Dorset Pants
Ted Baker Endurance 2 - Button (I know it's not SF Thrift Approved)

Photos to be posted soon.  I am in a one of my grad school classes.

Walked into a higher-end thrift today that had close to 10 Sulka shirts, all in my size, for $18 a piece. They fit well, though would probably need some darting. Something just didn't seem right about them. Besides the Tag that just read SULKA and the smaller size tag, there weren't any others. Really lightweight and almost stretchy fabric too. Didn't seem like the quality I thought they'd be. Maybe I just don't know the brand. Also (foolishly) left behind some Leica trinovid 10x25 binoculars that they wanted $125 for. Probably aren't there anymore, and I was not in the market/nor can afford frivolous binocular purchases, but these were the bomb (as I'm sure you all know). Ahhhhgggg.

 

But the thrift gods giveth as well, as the next shop provided me with a little something. Pics later tonight.

I guess they were a limited edition for the 1992 Olympics. Size 10.5 D. Sadly, they dont fit. so they're available.

Just got home with a car load. Exhausted

 

Hans and I taught Harrisburg a lesson today. Totally awesome dude. Here I thought he was Austrian this whole time. lol. 

 

Highlights of the day....

  • I found a Hermes sheep tie, Hans found a NWT Skeet Blanket a few seconds later. We traded straight up.
  • We listened as disgruntled S.A. employees repeatedly reprimanded parents, over the P.A. system for letting their children run amok in the store. It was pretty hilarious. 
  • We went to Chic-fil-a and got Hans the large quantities of Chic-fil-a sauce.
  • I actually finished this sentence as it came out of Hans' mouth. "I was hoping I would get to witness you finding some..." Me interrupting "Hey look I found some Shell Cordovans" 

 

Had an awesome time, glad you could make it Hans!

Pretty decent day by my standards though frustratingly large numbers of orphans everywhere - I passed on a Polo Italy suit and 2 or 3 BBGF's that were all orphans, not to mention a Zegna or two. Also a JCrew Ludlow jacket with LP cloth that was my size that was ruined by some moron who decided it would be a good idea to sloppily handsew elbow patches on...?

Anyways, some decent finds.

+J Women's Trench. I was all excited because it fits me but then realized that the buttons on the wrong side...sigh



Mainline Corneliani x2 (one's an orphan but should still go on the 'bay)





SUPER Nice BB Madison jacket - charcoal herringone with a blue overcheck, cashmere blend, double vented 3r2...deliicious.




J Press Presstige Olive Herringbone Jacket.




And last but not least a really nice Brown herringbone Paul Stuart Suit.

Is this the right Paul Stuart tag to look for?

Mmmm Chic Fil A sauce! I don't care what liberals say, Chic Fil A is awesome

Wes, congratulations on that skeet blanket, but most people just use a tissue. More hygienic.

To my knowledge there's no wrong PS tag. The best stuff from them in my experience is the Made in Canada by Samuehlson stuff. (This piece is US union made but still nice).

So after my first couple weeks of thrifting, considering the law of averages, I have to say that most of you here must be visiting the thrift stores a LOT. And if you're making a living at this, more power to you! I truly admire your dedication.
 
I might go a couple days a week during a lunch break or a weekend, so I'm buying just for myself. The Cleveland area is not the most fashionable place in the world, but I've learned to spot the good stuff. I make sure the fit is good, and since I don't have a mannequin, I model the shirts myself. My goal is to build a good quality CM wardrobe from scratch. Without further ado:
 
Vintage Florsheim Imperial Gunboat Longwings - $4.00
It's nice to find something exactly in your size - 9D
 

 
Brooks Brothers Blue Stripe Shirt - $4.35
Nice staple pattern - I'll be using this as my necktie shirt for modeling. Alteration: waist taken in.
 
 
Hart Schaffner Marx Shirt - $5.50
A bit wrinkled, hadn't ironed it yet. I like the pink windowpane check pattern. Alteration: waist taken in.
 
 
Corneliani Shirt - $6.00
Fractional neck size 15 3/4 but fits my 16 inch neck. Alteration: waist taken in.
 

 

Orvis Shirt - $4.35
The nicest, softest cotton of the bunch, but shoulders are too big (see how they droop over my shoulders, but not horribly). Hadn't noticed it before buying. Alteration: waist taken in.
 

 

Brooks Brothers Makers Red Floral Necktie - $1.00
A bit wide, but very nice eye-popping red tie that will go with a lot of shirts.
 

 

Vineyard Vines Custom Collection Vanguard Necktie - $1.99
Nice sailing theme.

Thanks hucklecat. I think once I get the hang of this, I'll look back and think "why on earth did I buy that?" and replace things as better items come up. I can't wait to build up a wardrobe to post actual WAYWRN pics!
