Crazy ass weather in Chicago today.  Was trying to watch the Bears Games but is hella delayed.

 

Prolly a good day to thrift in Chi-Town if you can make it out safely.

post #84932 of 125132

Alright, here's the shit.  Spoilered because it's a billion pics.  

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Ferragamo Kilties, mint Brother Wright (cool old (probably pre-1960s) USA made shoes), Ferragamo suede women's flats.

 

 

 

 

NWT recent Armani, NWT recent Canli, recent Stefano Ricci (probably the nicest, most wearable, and softest tie I've thrifted), Hermes, Vineyard Vines Bulls & Bears

BB Golden Fleece, VV, Ricci, good Lanvin

Ted Baker, Talbott BOC x2

 

 

 

Someone unloaded their entire collection of infinitely wearable CT ties x7

 

 

 

Marmot goose down puffer for the GF

 

 

\

 

Harris Tweed full length overcoat

 

 

 

SC-able Isaia, Harris Tweed, BB hopsack, Oxxford

 

 

Paul Frederick (don't care..it's the sickest SC of theirs I've seen.  Triple patch pockets), WM Fox & Co. true madras, recent Canali, recent PRL corneliani (3/2, side vent)

 

 

Berle (for me, sick pattern), FF Zanella, Zanella

FF Zanella, FF Santorelli, Burberry flannel

 

 

FF BB Madison linen, Oxxford, Belvest

Zegna, current label Zegna, recent Samuelsohn x2

 

 

One of the sickest Oxxfords I've picked up(ticket pocket, working cuffs, heavyweight flannel, FF pants)

 

 

Chester Barrie

 

 

1959 Wealeson & Legate bespoke suit (Sackville, off-row)

 

 

 

Tommy Nutter SR (RTW, not bespoke...still, first Nutter I've seen in person), James & James bespoke tux jacket (Old Burlington street, off-row), recent Canali, BB Loro Piana

 

 

 

 

PRL lambswool card with MOP buttons, BB pure cashmere v-neck, Peter Millar cashmere blend 1/4 zip

Zegna merino wool, BB made in England lambswool

 

 

Recent-ish HF full belted topcoat

 

 

Zegna x4

Jeff Rose, Paul & Shark, Bills Khaki

Canali, Graham x2

 

 

Nicest CT slim fit I've seen, Ben Silver, Ben Silver, Zegna

Peter Millar x3

Versace, Barbour, Dunhill

 

 

Eton, Etro, Luciano Barbera

Pendleton lightweight shacket, NWT Pendleton, Vintage Woolrich shacket

 

 

Sulka (the oldest date-confirmed shirt I've found...dated July 1959.  Gorgeous), Ferragamo, RLPL

RLPL x3 (last is linen, SS)

Talbott Estate Bespoke, Willis & Geiger Poplin/Safari shirt

Sidenote on the Talbott: this is the nicest shirt I've ever handled.  Blows Fray/Kiton/Charvet et al. away.  Everything is hand done.  The MOP buttons are fucking massive, and they are attached like SC buttons.  See pics below.  I was blown away...amazing shirt.

 

 

 

 

BB Cable knit tennis sweater

 

 

Awesome tank of a BB sweater, made in Denmark

 

 

Nataku signal!!

 

Cower before my h4xx0rz MS Paint skillz!!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Is this something cool, and any idea on the age?

 

USA made, real MOP buttons, split side gusset.  Just seemed well made overall.

 

 

 

 

Also, is this something cool and how old?  Because it seems super cool.  It weighs exactly 47.2 trillion pounds, button fly, looks unique.  Is that "9/63" the year?

Hope this helps!

I fucking LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket.  This is probably the sickest jacket I've thrifted in terms of uniqueness, wearability, and perfect fit for me.  So awesome.  I've had it for awhile, but finally got around to getting it dry cleaned.  It will get a shitton of wear by me.

Jacket: vintage Paul Stuart alpaca/wool blend loden (thrifted)

Shirt: Barbour (discount, bought from someone here)

Jeans: Simon Miller M003 (ebay)

Shoes: Clarks Dessert Boots chukkas with commando soles (thrifted)

That is the sickest varsity type jacket I've seen on this thread! But I still like mine. The smellZ of sweet leather is intoxicating...

So much good stuff, but I especially dig the flannel oxxford suit and that BB sweater made in Denmark. And the Savile Row stuff. And just about everything else.

 

Damn. I really have the urge to blow off this conference and turn Houston out.

+1.

 

How many stores and how many hours did it entail, Androfan?

Indeed. If there was a haul of the year contest, this would be tough to beat.

Tornadoes down this way. How are the cancer sticks going?

I want to say....12 or 13.  I left the house at 7:30 AM, and got home at 9PM.  Drive time was probably 2-2.5 hours, about 100-150 miles.  I stopped briefly, for drive through food, which I ate in the car between shops.

so guys, a bit off topic but still pertains to thrifting...my tailor has been chastising me lately for bringing in shirts with pleats on the back. saying how hard it is to tailor and how much it costs (would have costed like $30/shirt to tailor to fit me).

is this typical? or should i find a new tailor?

This is not typical. My tailor who has a attitude from time to time have been tailoring my pleated shirts and she never complains about that. Maybe it's time to explore other options.

post #84945 of 125132
Some great finds in there, Andro. My favorite thing you posted, though, is that awesome Paul Stuart jacket.

Maybe the pics don't do justice, but I don't know if I'd call those CT ties infinitely wearable peepwall[1].gif
