I'm obviously not on the cutting-edge of fashion, because I have never seen, nor heard of, a pleated tie.  And now I have.

So I was inspired by Spoo's Ferrari thing, and about saving this thrift money towards a specific goal, rather than just aimlessly purchasing more and more stuff. So...my new goal is to pay for college with thrifting money. I am 30 years old and recently decided to go towards a BSN in Nursing. I am still doing pre-reqs at community college and just made my first tuition payment of $427 with my paypal card linked to all of my ebay money. Pretty remarkable that this little bit of extra work can fund a crucially important part of my future!

 

I only post this because I figure putting it out there on the boards will make me a bit more accountable to this goal. Also, I wanted to post it as a thank you to the insanely valueable information I've recieved from these boards and the inspiration to keep on doing it!

 

That rules.   And making it public is sort of a New Year's resolution.

And that rules too.  Rock on.

I found a pleated front tie from Brioni a few years ago. Definitely the nicest and coolest Brioni tie I've found to date. They also bring in a considerable amount of money, resale-wise. I think mine sold for north of $100. Pretty good for a used tie! I think someone else found a pleated Ricci on here before as well.

Finally picked up this mother at my local evil thrift's half-off sale. They wanted 60 for it  originally. (it was next to a polyester tuxedo tagged for a hundo) and management wouldn't budge. Had to wait a week and get it for 30. For-profit too. Rargh. Can't wait to get back to Seattle. Needs a reweave, but still...

 

 

Brioni, 40r, flat front. Figured it was still probably worth the buy. 

 

apologies for the garbage pics. DSLR is back on west coast

That would be me...because I had to PM you to figure out how the hell to describe that thing on ebay. I can't remember what it sold for but it was up around $70ish.

That's a beautiful suit, and the trousers being flat front are a big plus! I'd even say it would have been a good deal at $60.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw that label. It's in pretty minty shape too. Tagged small.

Ha I'm drooling over both the Borrelli and the Brioni suits that were found in my size today... Nice finds, guys.
post #89877 of 121322

Checked through the label thread - couldn't find this one. It's on a Prada suit. Any ideas?
