Hey bros.

 

Been like 3 months....what'd I miss bros?  (please be succinct).  lol jk.

 

Also, I now live far as fuck from the thrift gold I used to net, and work like a southern slave, so LOL at me posting finds ever again.

 

Also....

 

 

...but I relapsed.

 

Also, noob/casey/deadboy/Nataku, keep holding that SW&D hotness shit down.  Never stop poasting, or I will burn this motherfucker down.

 

I'll see you bros in another few months or so.  

 

Just know the Andro cares, and he will still hug you for your Thomas Pinks and Brooks Bros slim fits like woah.

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.

I think this is the key for most of us; a wife to keep us in check.

I decided to NOT go thrifting today and instead went through my stockpile of stuff for the bay. It was insane how much good stuff I had that I forgot about. 2 recent Canali coats, 2 recent Monsier Givenchy gold button sport coats, John Varvatos coat, tons of other stuff. Spent the majority of the day taking photos, measuring and listening to records. Side note: Today, I realized that I love the Wipers.

 

Had 15 minutes to stop by a GW on my way home from work on Friday and found about 15 Hickey Freeman suit coats all from the same donor. All 40R. Found one matching pair of pants for a coat so I got that and one HF tweed. It kind of killed me having to run out to pick up my fiance from work and not keep searching the pants. I sent ilikethelights a text about it. Hopefully he stopped by and found some stuff. 

 

There was also a really nice seeming tweed coat that was labeled "Perth, LTD." for $8.99. I passed because I couldn't find any info on it. Should I have picked it up or good pass?

 

Last thing: Spoo - I never thought I'd be jealous of a Jos A Banks purchase, but you did it. That RLPL jacket seems okay, too.

Hudson's Bay Inuit parka. I spotted this on a rack that had been left near the register as I was leaving to pay. The "pros" who chase down the racks as they're being wheeled out clearly have a reason to do so:

And I know that there are vinyl guys on the thread who'll appreciate this: before eBay hit big and people camped out in stores thrifting everything, I routinely found stuff like this: first pressing promo. copy of the Morning Dew lp.

 

 

And this:

 

 

But I was in high school, so "routinely" meant whenever I could convince my grandfather to take me to the Buy the Pound that's now a condo. Anyway, I've since moved to a place that has zero flippers, and it's a teak/vinyl/vintage paradise. It's like a pre-eBay Garden of Eden. I won't post too many pics, but these were had for twenty cents each: Horowitz Warhol cover and early Milstein.

Awesome finds. I often pick up classical for myself but have never researched the genre in terms of which lps are valuable. These 2 are now on my radar atleast, so thanks for that.

I knew I saw somebody picked this label up.  What is the deal with this label.  I can't seem to find anything on here, eBay or the web.  I picked up what looks like a cashmere overcoat.
