100% kiton.

So safe to assume price tags mean dick as far as determining manufacturer where Marshall's is involved? I just checked and the tags on the Charvets are identical formatting, priced at $225 each.

The tag is from Wilkes Bashford.

Everyone is getting all butt-hurt about the proper things to bring up in this thread when most of the stuff mentioned in here should be in a different thread. The Fit pics go in the WAYWT, the questions about how to clean something go in the STAIN REMOVAL GUIDE, a question about something that needs to be tailored can go in the THE SECOND TAILORS' THREAD: TECHNICAL TUTORIALS, questions about Labels, I believe Brianapore made a thread to help everyone (stand up guy). There are Appreciation threads for everything you can think of.

The point I am trying to make is this thread should be ONLY thrift bragging/pics bragging (like the title states), OR have it like it is. Trust me I am sick and tired of seeing all the macy brands, vintage christian dior ties, etc but I feel like if someone is proud of the crap they buy then they are allowed to show it.

Just a Senior Member's two cents. nod[1].gif

If you have the time to pillage Seattle, I highly recommend this site. Enjoy your trip.

That's beautiful. Even if your name's not Neil.

Recently picked up a big stash from a guy who apparently loved shopping at Bernini Beverly Hills.  All of the stuff is way too small for me (38 / 34), but scored a number of Brioni, Canali, Versace and other items.  Pictures soon.  

 

One item has me puzzled for a couple of reasons.  

 

1) Who makes for Bernini Couture in Napoli?  Most beautiful cashmere sportcoat...

 

Didn't see this tag in the other thread

 

 

 

2) For some stupid reason, on this coat, they have a super sticky security device on the lining here.  I'm going to attempt to steam it off and hope that the lining isn't forever ruined.  Other thoughts as to removal?

 

 

Thanks!

I'll take the rap for suggesting fit pics in this thread. I had two purposes in mind when I did.
  1. Since the Thrift thread is mostly comprised of a small but fairly consistent community of regulars, it's a friendly place to get comfortable posting fit pics with the proviso that one is wearing thrifted clothing. We're kind of like the minor league, prepping people to step up to the bigs like WAYWRN.
  2. Page after page of pants limply laid out on the bed or sport coats hanging on the back of the bathroom door are suddenly brought to life when someone puts that Canali sport coat on and knots up that Hermes tie. It's nice to see the clothes in action.
Since the fit pics feature thrifted clothing, they're in keeping with the OP premise of making it a bit of a brag. YMMV.



Hey Spoo? These can't be real.

 I'm not sure of the exact date, but my dad used to have one similar to that which I think was from the late 60s/early 70s. He picked it up while he was studying geology in college in the mid-late 70s.

Quick gift exchange update...

We have around 21 people involved so far. I'll be comparing my current list to that of last year and PM those that were in last year but haven't signed up yet. I understand that some are probably too busy to participate, but I'd love to get to 40! It's too bad some of our regulars aren't regularly posting these days (Mexicutioner, Klobber, Grendel, etc.). However, as I said, you don't need to be a regular poster to participate!
