I can think of at least three felony class offenses that I'd commit to own a pair of those. devil.gif

Helped a buddy move for a couple days which let me hit up the SA near him which I rarely frequent. Good thing I did! All n/a except the D&G.

Some thrift synergy with all the talk of Vicuna recently. Really is a great feeling and looking fabric. Both coats donated by the same guy (D.D. initialed in one, and the D___ D___ name in the other), fit like a glove (save maybe a half inch too long in the inseam).


Oxxford SC (Click to show)


Vicuna (Click to show)




Half-off day on the color tag for both jackets to boot. Finally popped the Oxxford cherry after passing on some heavily damaged stuff a month ago. Admittedly dated lapels on the Oxxford, but not surprising given that the thing is 30 years old, and I can handle it for ~$4. Not familiar with the HK tailor on the Vicuna, but looks nice, pick stitching around the lapels, etc.

BTW,

I snagged a RLPL black striped point collar, barrel cuff dress shirt ('boutiqued' at $12 mad.gif ) and a NWOT slim fit BB button collar red striped shirt, neither of which I currently owned so n/a.

The RLPL looks like this except the stripes are black.



I left one of these... VTG USAF Mens CWU 36P Air Force Fire Resist Summer Military Jacket Coat Sz S
... priced at $15 with oak leaf patches at the shoulders and in perfect condition because i was going to chance it being there tomorrow for Senior Citizen Day and 25% off. As I type this, however, I just realized today is Monday and SCD is WEDNESDAY! ffffuuuu.gif Maybe I'll go back today and pay the full boat.

This stuff? These are from a blazer I found a few months ago. I assumed it was the good Valentino.

Yes, that label is the recent stuff and seems to be of solid quality.  The label I had was black, but had the same size/shape/script/internal label.

When you pay less than ten bucks for a coat, yeah, I'd imagine it is worth it.

Not too much, I suspect. I paid something significantly under $100 for mine, which were in fine condition, from eBay a few years back. There was no stampede.

I went to one of those once. Pretty sure it took a couple years off my life.

 

 

 

OK, time to clear up some misconceptions:

Not the 'good' Valentino by this thread's quality/flippability standards. There are two 'good' Valentinos:

 

1) Recent Valentino.

2) Valentino's 'Tailoring' label, which is made by Isaia. Will be a black label with gold lettering, the word 'Tailoring' underneath and, you know, an Isaia content tag.

 

The dead giveaways that that's old is the 'Uomo,' the stupid V logo and just about everything else you took a pic of.

 

So yeah, not the good Valentino, but from the looks of it, a good jacket you'll enjoy wearing.

None of it is crap crap, just not up to the craftsmanship standards of many other labels we find. Like other European labels that are primarily catered to womenswear, it's not mindblowing stuff and it's way overpriced at retail, but thrift prices is a different story.

Yes, and that looks like a pretty nice colour/pattern too, nice find!

Two vests for me:









BB Sweater:





Barbera:





Ties (L to R - Stefano Ricci (in Halloween section for $0.99), Ted Baker, Hickey Freeman, Barbera, Tiffany Collection)







Here's a close-up of the Ricci tag. Is this recent? Can't say I've seen this label.




BB Royal Stewart Scarf:



H by Hudson:





D&G Pin Strip Orphan Pants (any reason to think these aren't legit?)





PRL Reversible Down Puffer Vest:





BB Corduroy Jacket:





Vietnam-era(?) Peacoat (any help on info?)





Diesel that I actually kind of like:



PRL Military-Style Wool Coat:



LL Bean that I wish was a medium



is this a thing?




And the reason I hate Unique. Awesome Bemidji Woolen Mills coat that fit me great, but marked waaaay too high:


post #82195 of 110257
Oh well, you win some, you lose some. If I ever have the need for a tux, I'll still be better off than the other 90% of the population in rentals. Also, I could give 2 fucks what some random dipshit is saying in another thread. This isn't high school.

I'm in the field now. If anyone wants these minty AE Bridgetons in 12 D I'll get them. Otherwise they're too small for me. They'll be sitting in my cart until I leave. PM me in the next 15-20 minutes if you want them.

I was curious why you said the lapels were dated.

Mine feel amazing. They're soft, extremely warm, but breathable. It's pretty cool, but I prefer the feel of Loro Piana Super 130's+ myself. I like smooth feels.

 

Only got a couple Thomas Pink shirts today, stores around here were way too packed to really get much thrifting done.
