Dry spell continues, so I'll post a thrift/discount fit. Pretty much the shape of thrifting for me at present.

Blazer - Robert Geller, B&S

Shirt - Club Monaco, thrift

Jeans - APC, discount

Boots - Alden, someone here can't remember who sorry!

That is sweet!  I love my Billy Reid Chinos.  Favorite pair.

I found a lot of two Myvu video glasses for around $50, it looks like, at auction. (Retail $330 each). Both appear to be new, but opened. Can't tell whether this is a must-grab or not.

I suppose the real question is: Will it take porn to the next level? (And has it been used for this purpose already?)

Film at eleven.

Nice!  

 

I was up in Scottsdale thrifting wearing my all linen outfit when a microburst hit.  I might as well have been naked walking to my car.

By the time I got the parka on it was just about done raining, but I was excited anyway.

+1 for Eastland boots. I have a pair. Nothing special but looks and feels great.

so i've been at it for a little under 5 weeks. i lost my job 7 weeks ago (my own, purposeful neglect). i haven't felt this good, not sure ever, really. i've went back to school after putting it off for a good while, and have been doing this as a side thing. it's been pretty entertaining. thrifting is a good reason for getting myself out and not letting depression get to me, it's been great.


i think i've got a decent amount of things over time, i'll post more about them later. i'll just post some crummy pictures of things i thought were particularly interesting to me. again, these pictures are bad.

Answering your first question, for shirts, most of us use this method, referred to here simply as "The Method." http://putthison.com/post/441812762/cleaningshirts
I am in the process of experimenting to find a similar method for cleaning the lining on wool trou without damaging the wool. I have several permutations, and simply not enough time at the moment to run the actual experiment. Stay tuned.

Thanks again for doing your homework
.

haha, i've been on forums for over half of my life. i hate the guys who want to get spoon fed the days everyone else took to learn as much as the regulars.


is "the method" good for trousers, too? specifically zanella's. flat dry? not sure if that has to do with your experiment, but i hope so.

Ordinary day today, but only had time for one shop.

Zegna Sport bomber jacket, my size. Lucky find this; the weather turned as soon as I went outside, and I was wearing it straight away.

Corneliani Trend sports coat. SB, 3 roll 2, ticket pocket, size EU50R drop 8. Dark brown with a subtle blue windowpane. Pretty nice I think, but too big a drop for me.

What size are these. I've been looking for a pair of full strap pennys in almost any color brown for over a year!


If anyone comes across one of these towels, I call pre-dibs. Shoot me a PM.

Uploading some of my finds for the first time. These ties are all BB with the two LE repps in the bottom row. I am new to the forum but not new to thrifting. How do I get the spoiler function to work on the iPad? I can't figure it out. More pics will be coming once I do. I just wanted to say hello and express my amazement with some of the finds that I see here. Cheers to all!

My odd's have to be higher than most. I am freaking surrounded by water. I take a bridge just to get to a bridge.

$125 retail for a beach towel? TFW?!?
