If anyone is interested in a proxy on a Brioni or Charvet tie, get at me. Clearance rack finds, not thrift prices.

Last time I felt comfortable enough in my finds someone soon after shattered that by posting J Lobbs. Then I dropped out of lurking and activity. 

 

I was getting to that point again and you post a 5k camera bag find. 

 

son of a bitch.

 

i'll be back in a year.

Just incredible dude!  Best part is you plan on wearing/using most of it!

Really sorry about that, as I wanted to post things while I was still in the US. Please hold back on PMs if there is actually anything here for which you have interest.

I'll start with one of my favorite finds. I bent down to tie my shoe and recognized the pattern from a little ways away, even though is was wadded up in the bottom of the basket. Check out that price tag biggrin.gif

Canali...bamboo (?). Might be an orphan, but the patch pockets look odd jacket enough. Not shiny in real life.

Broke my orphan rule on this. Pants nowhere to be found. Good Lanvin, right?

Someone quoted the Isaia that I found in Springfield, Illinois (sorry, I forget who that was). Here it is...

Zegna linen/wool/silk from Marshalls. Large size, I know, but couldn't pass it on the super-low discount price. Color looks awful here, but it's a great summer jacket.

Burberry trench...can anyone authenticate? I'm terrible with Burberry, but the details matched I thought. The things throwing me off are the striped lining and the lack of a country of manufacture.

Oxxford trousers. Possible reverse orphan, but they fit and I thought the color would be fine without the jacket.

Zegna trousers. Same story as above.

Isaia pants...fit incredibly well, thrilled to find. Since they're white, it's rather shocking that they're without any stains.

Zanella trousers. I don't often wear navy odd trousers, but these were my size and came with tags.

I think it was Nat that found something like this a few months ago. I was flipping through the racks and stopped on this. Though it was without tags, it felt nice. A closer look at the buttons gave it away.

Had minor surgery this morning, unexpectedly. Wasn't planning on thrifting, well maybe subconsciously, but I stopped at one store on the way out of town. Was in search of the last few items on the Scavenger Hunt list and I spied this.

 

Hoped it was teak, but Frenchy has confirmed that it is not.

 

Better pics once my help arrives to bring it in the house.

 

1930's Walnut and Poplar dresser with insane ornate inlay work.

History...track record...proven quality over years...and years....and years....grail is an understatement for camera enthusiasts...+ the price tag of some of those lens are very very high.

Also in the living room is my Great Grandfathers dry sink from the early 20's, my Great Grandmothers Lane hope chest from her 16th birthday in 1926 and my Great Great Great Grandfathers shoe shine box from 1914. Though this dresser is a little more "modern" than those, it fits in quite nicely. It will become our new board game storage.

Thanks man! I really don't flip much at all, most everything I find and pick up is for personal use. Barring of course something really nice. That's what made this weekend so great, basicly everything was for me and fit, really couldn't have asked for anything better! The filson pants were the exception, I just couldn't leave those behind haha
post #80818 of 122021

Oi, I've been thrifting for awhile and have some stuff I'd like to put up on the bay. I bought a mannikin to display SCs/suits, but I don't have a white shirt or a red bowtie (that capnwes, he's got some ideas). Does anyone have an extra BB/CT/equivalent oxford shirt lying around? Even better, a generic low tier bowtie? I'll eventually find both in the field, but anyone has either lying around I'd be happy to get you back with @ thrift prices/shipping. I know I'm new, and I've been around forums quite a bit, so if this too presumptuous then let me know.

 

Also, can I stain generic wood to make it look old... and nicer? By sanding off whatever coat it has and reapplying a darker stain? I want to get a stool/small table to photo ties/shoes on, and wanted to spruce up the generic wood color.

 

---

yeah, instead of double posting I'm just going to apphend:

 

What happened to DM7 (I think that was it)?

 

The hell does kop actually stand for? I get the general idea, but can't figure the acronym.

 

I saw some Bally shoes yesterday. They were nice, but shiny as hell and since I didn't know the brand until after I left/research I didn't grab 'em. Why would they have that uber sheen? They were slip/on black tie looking if that helps.

I never post on this thread because the finds posted make my Haggar and Mossimo pale in comparison...but today...at Goodwill in Houston found the missing pants that went with a Zegna black suit jacket on the suit rack in my size...in the pants rack and it fits perfectly. My first Zegna suit and from the thrift store no less.
Also never found any shoes worth mentioning but today found Cole Haan Benchmade in England monkstraps. If I wasn't reading threads on Styleforum I wouldn't even know a monkstrap from anything else. These shoes are too large for me to wear but are a nifty find.
Also found a Burberry jacket orphan and it fits but...it not a sports jacket so guess it will go on auction later.

Lol, this thread alone could clothe a small country in Hagger and Botany 500.
