Folex is generally used for spot cleaning of carpets. Been around for quite some time. Never thought of using it on clothes though.

And I see you're just pocketing the pennies for a discount... Looks like those just need a good polish.

Nice. I love finding the non-mainstream fashion labels, mostly because I hardly ever find them. I see Brioni/Isaia/etc more often that some of that stuff. Most recently were some white Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto shirts I had happened across. In my 8 years of thrifting, this was the first I had ever seen of these labels in person.

Here are the pictures of th Green Kiton Sportcoat, The Blue one looked just like this but a royal blue. I sadly dont have the Sulka Sportcoat anymore. It was just your basic Camel Colored Two Button Sportcoat....

Having recently changed my sartorial habits, I've not done much in the way of thrifting for better clothing, so my only score to date was a couple of years ago at the Vanners mill shop, where I picked up three Duchamp ties for about $30. I was there last year, but their selection was a bit dry...will be going again this December, so hopefully there will be more. Will also pick up some cufflinks at great prices now that I own shirts with french cuffs...

post #9583 of 110738
Wow! I like those a lot - nice score! I'm a big fan of Duchamp.

Guys, I just realized that once Halloween is over, thrift stores should settle back
in to giving up her treasures. It's been busy at the stores, have had to work
extra hard. Found a decent Burberry suit today, on Ebay.

Tell me about it. Usually Halloween is great because I can score lots of vintage military uniforms (another collecting hobby I have) which they put out in the costumes section. This year hasn't been as good as in past years and the stores are so crowded. Ugh.
