Sorry, that should have read waste. I really need to check my grammar and spelling before posting.
The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Page 6294
Styleforum Top Picks
Hall tree so not a true thrift. 30% off and came to $26. I got lucky in that the tag is on but the price is torn off. I was expecting a much higher price.
I know Nat picked up some stuff by S Kuhlman recently so it seems maybe they've dumped a bunch of stock around town because there was a about 5 of these coats. I grabbed a couple:
Lightweight overcoat type thing from S Kuhlman with pouch to pack it in (M) available (I have it in dark green too)
Arc'tyrex Polartec fleece thing. A little pilling on the back to clean up but it was half off (L)
J Crew suede wingtips. n/a
Bullock and Jones (L) what's this pattern called?
Pendleton tartan (M)
Bought some lights and stuff to do this in my basement at Menards as well so I don't have to take photos on my porch in the cold anymore. Still working on the setup
Dumb joke on my part sorry. Not trying to be the thread grammar nazi or anything.
Loro Piana casual BD XL.
Are these plastic things on the collar from the dry cleaners or are they only from the store?
No, sir. I wore it to my cousin's wedding. This was like in 2010 or something. Look at that baby face.
The obscure jp Grail guide, part 2.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
"BIG JOHN" One of the originals. they are a grail for what they represent, as an older company. and they are well made too! quality 8.5/10
(these have seen a lot of wear time, they are well faded. but look ready to go for a lot longer)
"Kyoji Maruyama" Is a Japanese fashion designer, and the only way to describe his feel is "what characters in Final Fantasy wear". cool stuff, but not all for me. quality 8/10
"Number (N)ine" Are super desirable grail SW&D. and these were clearly made more for style than strength. simillar in level to G-star. just way more expensive. quality 7/10
Let's continue in retail, just to show the aesthetics of some more brands.
"BUZZ RICKSONS" Are a "Americana" tribute brand, and very 1940's influenced. with quality, well made stuff, good Denims, Good leathers. some of it i Dig. quality 9.5/10
"MOMOTARO" Are now famous, and they are good. nice denim, solid construction. famous with good reason. might kop in future.... quality 9/10
Are a sister company of "Kaminari Garage". and their stuff is a mix of "Americana" and "car guy" influences. i dig this company a lot. fairly well made, fun style. quality 8/10
see these jackets to show the combination of the two company's with the black one featureng "Tedman" on the front. some great bad english on these too! love it.
back to the list....
"Studio D' Artisan"
A must for anyone who would call themselves a "Denim head". they are on the same level as SugarCanes, but just a little more concentrated on stronger Denims. great stuff . quality 8.5/10
"Pherrows" I have seen this stuff in the thrifts, and not kopped. but it is good stuff, just kopped other things. strong Denim, sewn well. grail beaters. workwear fosho. quality 8/10.
There is plenty more to see, and i will scour the thrifts to get pics for you guys. i hope you enjoy the variety. and kop if you see any in the states.
part 3 will be ALL items found in thrifts, like part 1. seeing things in the retail environment illustrates the genre of things i find in trifts. and i can show you garments in new condition.
all items pictured are quality, and keepers for sure. some have great resale value if that's your thing also. 90% is made in japan, but all is japan streetwear brands. the styles here are totally different. and only limited by the wearer's imagination. please forgive the long posts. part 3 in a few days.
Edit: i would like to add that i see all these company's in thrifts. but they close earlier than the retail store. so i went there for pics. i have kopped Tedman's and kaminari at thrifts. Buzz Rickson is always too expensive. and momotaro was sold when i went out yesterday. so retail made it easy to show them.
Bro, I'm so gonna cop a pair of Momo when I visit! #9!!! @Ken P you like? Pherrows...I totes misspelled that in the denim guide...I'm also gonna cop a bunch of Tedman t-shirts. If I can thrift a Buzzrickson varsity jacket, I'll be super happy, too. Dude, I have a feeling when I come back, I'll have like 2 suit cases of grails!
Where ya going, Spoo?
Damn...Who is going to play Plutarch Heavensbee???!!! Are they currently filming it???!!!

That shirt rules.
Are you passing a kidney stone or tapeworm or something?
State and Main.
All completely different characters, and all spectacularly believable performances.
And then there are all the cameos.

I'm not usually the type to mourn celebs, but from an artistic perspective, this is a major, major loss.
