Anyways, my SW&D knowledge is extremely limited, but I know enough to pick this up. After a dozen trips this store finally paid off: NWT Robert Geller wool blend jacket. Tagged size 50. I think it's fall 2012.

lol, I've been too lazy to post. I've still been thrifting, but not super hardcore. Some highlights are some NWT Gucci stuff, some Brioni jackets, a couple of Jil Sander jackets, couple of Battistoni jackets, Comme des Garcon jackets and a pair of Lanvin sneakers.

Not that I made a ton of contributions, but I'm back from hiatus.

 

And I didn't come back empty handed.  Have some other finds, but for now.

 

NWT 44L Brown Canali Suit.

It translates to, just as the reading goes:

Good fortune (in golden letter)

 

Hope that was helpful!

The label just says Long Life Brand, Hangzhou, China. We were just there in May. West Lake is fucking gorgeous!!! We only stayed there for a day. We are going back in March and we are staying there for at least a week! Dude, seriously, if you guys get the chance to go to Hangzhou, do yourself a favor and go for at least 3 days!!! :slayer:

I've got one for you guys too, but it's somewhere at the bottom of a pile of a 2 day mega thrift haul.

First off, shout out to WES. We just had a great 8am-6pm Jersey thrift day which I have to say went pretty well. Lots of finds, a few laughs and a toll both that almost put us out of commission. All in all was great to meet my 3rd styleforum member.

+1 Awesome day today out with Brian. Fun to meet the real expert behind his whole operation, turns out Brian is just the internet guy....a button pusher so to speak. The mastermind is a man we met at the first stop. The toll booth was funny.........until I found out there was a toll booth between your house and our hotel.:brick: . It wasn't there this morning.  Anyway, I hope we get a chance to meet up again.

:fonz: Love that shirt, would look great hiking in the woods.

 

Every time I see one of your posts it seems to start the same way "I picked up some stuff for myself today". How much stuff do you have in your closet? Do you cycle your entire wardrobe every season? I am trying to do this, every time I hit my stash for something I have to pull something from my closet in exchange. Now only the really good stuff stays which was kind of the point of all this anyway.

Ha! Too funny!

First off, some context. Our house was built in 1956 and I've seen walk-in closets in new houses as big as our "master" bedroom. Plus I share the closet with my wife.

i try to stick to a 1 in / 1 out policy but usually I end up playing catch up. Today's shirt tipped me over the edge. I needed to do something. I alternate my wardrobes - spring/summer and fall/winter - boxing each one up when it's not in use. That's one way I economize on space. Today I pulled out the fall wardrobe and began to cull from it and the summer stuff, based on what wasn't used much (or at all). Some of the cull of the fall stuff is based on stuff for fall/winter that I pick up in spring/summer.

In the end I had 2 black garbage bags to donate. One was outerwear and sweaters. How much outerwear and wool can one person wear? No, don't answer that.

And then there were a few things I put aside to sell, particularly some HT SCs. I also just sold a Boss SC I bought before I discovered the thrifts. I'd been hanging on to it because it cost so much but I never wore it. It was actually kind of a relief to do it.
