Ouch. Yes, that's exactly what you're hoping to find. Hermes in good condition with a fun pattern.

So many bikers, I Love it. Looking for smith/oakley/dragon anon goggles, ios/m1,eg2/ von zippers, the proven good stuff. Staying away from anything that has bad peripheral vision. Thanks again
Guessing it is real as it is 7-fold! (Click to show)
Also that air force peacoat is still here. Damage is just lining on one sleeve if anyone wants a proxy.

Label looks fine so far, but I didnt know Hermes made 7 folds. Check for the serial number and Hermes seal on the smaller end. Scour the tie for printing smudge or irregularities; Hermes doesnt let "seconds" get out into circulation. And check the back of the wide part for the loop, though I guess that wouldnt be there on a 7 fold....
My mistake. I apparently have a total misconception of the term 7-fold. Just read some stuff on tie variations and pretty sure its not a 7-fold. What resources are available for the serial number check?
Unfortunately I found out the shop opens late on monday. Since I am away for work most of the day I may not be able to pick it up. Fingers crossed it's still there tuesday.
Still have a few more hours of photos to take for the night, but I thought I'd take a quick break to share this. Here she is...
Brown's Beach Vest

The label looks '20s style to me. Most of the completed listings are for '40s & '50s, and the closest label I've found was from a '20s version that sold on a vintage clothing dealer's site. I have a feeling someone on here will have a knowledge base of these.
Me likey. Now go forth and find me some 1960s Duofold Model 701 loopwheel short sleeve undershirts. Preferraby in a size 36 or 38.
Yes...did I dream this? Andro(?) was offering a free RLPL shirt around sized 5XL to anyone who fit a certain number of odd criteria -- among them, having never used the words 'ebay' or 'spoo' and 'poker' in the same sentence. I was wondering what this was all about. Did I miss a dust-up? I hope not.
Then I fell asleep...
Also, if we could also just get a brief reprise of the 38R vs. caseyfud, that was very entertaining. Thx.
Yeah, I don't qualify. Over 500 posts, I've bought stuff with the sole intention of selling on ebay, and used the word ethrift before (last night! Ha!). In Andro's eyes, I am forever unclean.
This was my last thrift run (maybe...) before spending a week with the extended family for Christmas. First time in over 10 years we've all been able to get together for the holiday, so pretty happy it's happening.
Two evenings, 3 stores (Click to show)
Eton & J Press. Both pretty rare around here.
Polo 93% Cashmere, 7% Wool, hand knitted... in China, but still...
BB chino, BB herringbone tweed.
4x Bills Khakis.
Has Incotex ever made for Hickey Freeman? The pants in the back certainly look like Incos..., and a pair of Vineyard Vines corduroys, as well as Hickey Freeman for Bobby Jones Loud golf pants.
Brioni Cannes and Oxxford trousers.
Fairly loud pinstripe (chalkstripe?) Oxxford suit.
J Crew blazer, Jack Victor, and Lands End tweed.

interesting color flecks on the HT, unfortunately my iphone blew out most of the colors.
Pimptastic eggplant cashmere blazer by Jos Banks w/pocket square.
J Crew Ludlow tweed.
Has two moth holes on the back, but at $.99, I had to. Never seen Zegna Su Misura in person, and a cashmere blend... may try sending to a reweaver.
My second piece of Filson this week. $4.99
May not be an awesome brag, but I really liked the Gant Wool Flyer jacket I picked up. Leather sleeves and collar, throat latch.
Couple pairs AE.
And I e-thrifted these Corneliani ties. The one in the middle sold me - I had to have them.
I think I threw a bid on these as well.
Full Polo University Club suit by Ralph Lauren. Navy blue with pinstripes. RIP Lazarus
Forgot to get pics of the pants.
Available, need to get measurements.
Lot of ties. From left to right: NWT Polo Ralph Lauren Linen, Bert Pulitzer, unknown Japanese?, Yves Saint Laurent
Anyone have info on this?
Awesome Christmasy Timberland Sweater. Had no idea timberland made clothes in Italy?
And a random Under Armor for spring golf season.
