The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 5300post #79486 of 1387289/10/13 at 10:24pmpost #79487 of 1387289/10/13 at 10:43pm
Found these shoes a month or two ago but forgot to post. Better late than never, and I've been totally striking out on finding any half-decent shoes lately.
Ferragamo, apparently owned by someone who didn't know that stores sell something called "shoe polish." They shined up nice enough with a Saphir regimen but the vamps are kind of beat. Hopefully I'll get enough wearings out of them to justify the $6.
AE Bridgeton. Decided they're just too snug for me. 10 C and available.
Now for the last week or two worth of finds...
Couple of Pendletons
Prana climbing pants (holla atcha Fueco). I don't climb anymore but these are comfy as hell, great for hiking or just bumming around.
Couple of BB shirts. Not super brag worthy but for the fact that I rarely run across my size of 15.5-34/35.
Zegna and Paul Smith
Finally a Brioni shirt in my size that's not trashed!
Santorelli Luxury Serge trou
Knits in staple colors from un-noteworthy makers.
Liberty of London (because I like it), J Crew (English silk), Hugo Boss
NWT Charles Tyrwhitt, Murray's Toggery Shop whale pattern (n/a), PRL cotton, wool blackwatch from the old Georgetown University Shop (n/a)
The third one from the left is houndstoothy silk/linen awesomeness, been looking for something like it for quite a while so that one is n/a.
Couple of Harris Tweeds in my size. Forgot to lock the camera exposure settings so the pics don't show it well, but the second one is significantly darker than the first. So in my mind, it's a totally justifiable use of closet space to keep both!
BB puppytooth SC with a blue overcheck
Marks & Spencer gun club checkWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
HF gray glen plaid with blue overcheckWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
J Press mid gray
J Press navy pinstripeWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
J Press glen plaid w/ red overcheck
Southwick navy w/ light blue pinstripe, might not have to alter this one at all, n/a.
And to cap it off, a Brioni that may have never been worn after being tailored. Tag still on pants, came with spare buttons and fabric swatches. Not sure what the specific name of this fabric is, but it has herringbone type rows of alternating twill, and is a mix of green, blue and light brown. Looks kind of greenish-gray from a distance. My first thrifted Brioni, ain't spoilerin'.post #79488 of 1387289/10/13 at 10:51pmpost #79489 of 1387289/10/13 at 10:59pmpost #79490 of 1387289/11/13 at 12:11amQuote:Originally Posted by GMMcL
And here they are. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Boggi
PRL, turns out it's made in Mexico
While trying to take the price tag off, I did this:
I would totally rock the shit out of that made in Mexico PRL if it were my size!
That is the Daks but not sure if it's any good...I usually pass on those unless it fit me like a glove.Quote:Originally Posted by jcubzzz
Vintage Brooks Brothers still "new" with tags, only $35.

HOw much did you pay for it?
What's going on? You ok?
You know what they say something about a pic is worth a blah blah blah!post #79491 of 1387289/11/13 at 12:26ampost #79492 of 1387289/11/13 at 1:03ampost #79493 of 1387289/11/13 at 1:11ampost #79494 of 1387289/11/13 at 1:23ampost #79495 of 1387289/11/13 at 4:15ampost #79496 of 1387289/11/13 at 5:05ampost #79497 of 1387289/11/13 at 5:34ampost #79498 of 1387289/11/13 at 6:06amQuote:
What's your size for those brands? I pass on them often so I might as well pick them up for a SF homie. I also seem to run across a lot of North Face shirts and pants -- are those things you'd like as well?post #79499 of 1387289/11/13 at 6:45amThis motherfucker, from ebay, three weeks after the auction ended.
Am going to keep the belt, but cannot in good conscience give you a good rating on the way the belt was described.
Clearly, the most wear to a belt is where the tongue and buckle hold the belt together; this belt shows substantial wear on two belt holes.
Any comments before I publish my rating?
Sir, I told you that up that I would refund your money from the beginning . It has now been, what, three weeks, and you say you are going to keep the belt but still give me a negative rating? It's people like you that make it frustrating that sellers can no longer leave negative feedback. I know the belt had negligible wear and the color was absolutely shown correctly in the photos listed. I also know that there are some people out there with nothing better to do than to harass other people over the internet. Sir, get a life, and next time, stick to retail.post #79500 of 1387289/11/13 at 6:46am
