Speaking of

I found this today... (Click to show)

Extreme cutaway. And best of all... It fits. Store clerk knocked $5 off it which was nice... Going to be one hell of a shirt to test "the method" on. Now if I could just find a way to spare the buttons from etching.

Also a few skeets, and also a RLBL shirt I may want some help with... I think it might be a sample or something. Has a hand written tag over the RLBL tag.

Everything that isn't staying in my closet is hopefully going to supplement my upcoming major life events savings account, but I'd be willing to discuss trades if there is something you need!

Warning: CRAZY amount of pics including vintage Levi's porn (Click to show)

 

I posted some pics of a pair of deadstock vintage Levi's 501 big 'E' selvedge that I found a few days before Christmas.  Thanks to @Stewie and @MJMcRibb for their insight via PM.  I actually kopped five pairs of deadstock Levi's 501s - three pairs of STF non-selvedge, one pair of little 'e' selvedge, and the aforementioned big 'E'. 

 

A pair of the non-selvedge:

Selvedge big 'E'.  Some rusting on the buttons and a few loose threads.  Otherwise fucking pristine :nodding:

 

I think I let out an audible yelp in GW when I realized what these were.

You didn't misunderstand, my word choice just sucked :P

Yeah man...I saw the Levi's tags from across the store, borderline ran to the denim section, snatched them all and grabbed a cart.  The first pair I inspected were the big 'E' pair and I about shit myself.

Very cool, Fishy! That's exciting!

Great finds! That Rag & Bone cardigan is beautiful. Canada Goose is a grail find when it comes to outerwear. Also, you may know this already but those bespoke pieces are made by Adrian Jules. Well done!

Thanks Nat!  Knew I recognized the tags, but couldn't recall maker.  They're super nice.  Previous owner was one tall, broad, athletic dude.

Naturally, we were like "When the hell else would we get a chance to do this?" So we said yes, providing that we were dressing our own people. Anyways, we got the green light and it's happening. 




 

Very cool! Do keep us posted. (I might know some of your models, since I used to work on campus.)

But don't you fawking dare tell them where to thrift the cool shit!!!
post #91079 of 115849

WOW!   I can honestly say, that there has been an influx of pm's regarding those who made others happy in 2013.  so many in fact, that i have decided to split the prize in to 3 winners which are:

 

1. FaceofBoh. - for going above and beyond for the thread and it's members. needless to say, he is a champion of what "Thrift Bro" means.  you get the biggest, most fun toy.  you deserve it.:fonz:  (we know how awesome you are)  -with 2 outstanding nominations.

 

so moved by his acts of kindness, i am sending him this:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


an "Ultramagnus" masterpiece edition, comes with box and accessories. i love this thing. it is a worthy trophy. (my most prized toy)

 

 

2. 1ofthecoolkids. - with at least 5 nominations, he lurks until somebody needs help and immediately jumps in to the rescue, also a great guy , pm'ing noobs with advice. and never being a downer. always a bro for the members. he gets something very fun- yet to be decided. -going shopping for this one.:smarmy:

 

3. Spoopoker,- with a very compelling nomination.- we know him as the Ferrari driving big hitter. but he has mentored fellow members, and been available for help to anyone at anytime. he has proven his goodness to me via his nominee. ( pleasantly surprised, thumbs up Spoo):thumbs-up:     =   Your toy will have a picture of a horse on it, and a letter with words of thanks from your person who pm'd me.

 

 

well done guys, you rock.  also special congrats to GmmcL, Shiny, jebarne,330ck,and WES. for being recognized by others for being champs on here. :worship:

 

wrapping it up quickly to concentrate on real life stuff. it's nice to reward the good guys on here. you earned it.
