Very jealous of that LVC sweatshirt. I've been watching the grey version on Bench & Loom for a few months now hoping it'd drop to a more reasonable price. It finally did and by the time I noticed, they were sold out. Great find.

 Few things from today...

 

2000 Boston Marathon windbreaker jacket w/hood

 

 

I seem to recall that Acne is a decent brand. These are "my size" but way too small (tagged 34x32)

 

 

Earnest Sewn? They don't seem to get much love around here, but I've liked the ones I've had in the past. These are 34x34ish (again, skinny fit)

 

 

The loudest bicycling jersey I've seen since the 1990s... Terry, womens medium

 

 

Lands End, Aquascutum, PRL, PRL

 

 

PRL Conquest Hi II Boots (11.5D)

edit: almost forgot. There is one italian shirt maker worth a pick-up...Alfani. I love me some Alfani.

Sorry to using the same gif every time I see something super epic!

 

Anyhow, finally got some time to go to a store today.

 

Nothing too epic but did find some cool stuff.

Walked by the shirt and was like, "Dude, I bet you that's a Pendleton!" Well, it turned out to be an untagged wool shirt that I suspect it's from the 50's or 60's...But there are NO tags on there whatsoever! Fits me like a fucking glove! Can't wait to rock those with some raws, boots, and a henley under it.

 

Found some ties. Old school Drake's, Ernst, and a Paul Stuart.

So, I found these ties bundled up in 3 separate tie bundles that were going for $3.99 each. I asked the cute girl clerk who happened to have a sweet trunk and was wearing a pair of skinnys if I can make these 3 ties into a bundle (Yes, yes, I know, pics or it didn't happen but that'll be super creepy...) and bingo! She was super sweet and nice.

 

Anyhow, the last one was just HSM but fits me like a glove with the right length! Damn, super stoked cuz it's super hard to find stuff in my size!

Came home and found this.

Nice watch, looks almost the same as (but in better condition than) my great grandfather's.  I'll try to post a pic if I can dig it up.

I don't love a lot of their washes, but I wore Earnest Sewn rigids for a few years exclusively because my prosthetic leg would destroy every other pair of denim I'd buy. Earnest Sewn held up to the abuse very well.

+2 my local savers has any sport coat usually at $30+, most decent shoes in that range too. I still stop because every once and a while I get lucky, like my FF Zanella puppytooth flannel pants the other day in Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric. My size and pristine.

 

Unless it's a personal find I usually leave stuff there.

Thrynergy? Found this yesterday, official tie of the 1972 Munich games.

Wow, some awesome vintage finds lately! I look at the finds for Spoo, Capnwes, and ChetB and I'm thinking it would take me years to get the quantity/quality hauls that they get in just one day...

 

Nothing special this week, but good fits. I do have one item to trade, so the Trafalgar is available.

 

Trafalgar Braces

Don't wear braces so would like to trade for a brown leather belt.

 

 

 

Brooks Brothers 1818 Shirt - picked up for $4.35

Blue, brown/white stripes. Alteration: waist taken in.

 

 

 

Burberry London Shirt - $5.50

I keep finding Burberry Londons, but the fabric is so nice. Alteration: waist taken in.

 

 

 

Allen Edmonds McAllisters, Burgundy - $7.99

"Vintage" from late 70's (checked with AE), excellent shape for its age, with original soles in and out. 9D, just my size.

 

 

 

Brooks Brother Makers and Merchants Necktie - $1.00

Nice striped tie, good width.

 

 

Jhane Barnes Necktie - $1.50

I have a soft spot for Jhane Barnes, because I'm a geek at heart. One of her more wearable patterns, but a bit wide.

 

 

 

Thomas Pink Necktie - $2.00

First time running across a Thomas Pink in Cleveland. Cherry popped?

 

post #79079 of 110792

dz just wanted to say I like seeing your posts. Makes the hauls more fun to read and see the pieces being put to use!
