I'm finding this to be true. To paraphrase Mayor Daley, go early, go often.
Case in point, last night I was by a goodwill at about 8PM. did a walk thru of shoes, ties, and a run down the suits. This morning, I had to be in the same parking lot again, and since I was there at 9:30, figured I'd walk thru again. no shoes. no ties, but one guy donated 3 harris tweed jackets, one BB Cashmere blend sports coat and a Canali jacket. Not there 12 hours before.
I grabbed all 5.
Someone just recently mentioned finding tweeds with moth holes said to hold them up to the light so before I went to pay, I held them each up to the window and discovered that one of them had 3-5 moth holes, all small.
So I left with the other 4.
Again, this forum continues to pay dividends.post #82233 of 13872810/15/13 at 10:29amQuote:
You're welcome! It was the least we could do.
Now, if I could only figure out how to do a round of homemade cinnamon buns for the forum, I'd probably have some decent trade fodder!
PS tell your wife I'll be sending her the secret recipe.post #82234 of 13872810/15/13 at 10:32ampost #82235 of 13872810/15/13 at 10:48amQuote:Originally Posted by stevenkmason
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. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nobody here should be buying those to wear. Wingtip kiltie tassel loafers = the trifecta of ugly.Quote:Originally Posted by capnwes
Anyone seen this version of Brooks Brothers buttons before? Found these on an oooold undated custom suit. No other markings on the suit that would indicate BB, buttons were likely added.

Never seen them before, but those are neat!post #82236 of 13872810/15/13 at 10:55ampost #82237 of 13872810/15/13 at 11:14ampost #82238 of 13872810/15/13 at 1:04pm
Hi all, just checking in here. I have been super busy and SF just drifted out of my consciousness for a few months until fall compelled me to break out some tweed. Any quick highlights since mid-August? Oh, and my deepest apologies to any unseen and unreplied PM's that were sent during that period.
I have been thrifting pretty frequently, actually, but mostly for electronics and housewares. I will try to get photos of my highlights, but they include what I think is a pretty nice silver-trimmed Bavarian porcelain 10pc dinner set in near-mint condition (I know china is common, but not in so large a set or in such great condition), and a Technics SL-PD5 cd player. Also have photos of clothing items laying around somewhere, but will dig them out in time.
On an unrelated note, for opera-lovers in the NYC area or with Met Live telecast access -- I highly recommend seeing The Nose, by Shostakovich! One of the most visually interesting productions I've seen (though I admittedly have a taste for the modern). A rare treat.post #82239 of 13872810/15/13 at 2:13pmpost #82240 of 13872810/15/13 at 3:09pmpost #82241 of 13872810/15/13 at 3:15pmpost #82242 of 13872810/15/13 at 3:50pmQuote:

Love the jacket (same one you rocked in a past fit pic?) but a little less sure of the cropped pants + fur-lined slipper boots. Take a full body pic!post #82243 of 13872810/15/13 at 4:45pmQuote:
