    Glad to post a few finds again. Mostly I've been working and thrifting in @Cj52racers wake. Been a lotta

    [​IMG]


    and a lotta

    [​IMG]

    and those were priced at 19.99. at goodwill. did not kop. Is it thrifting if I want to get rid of the stuff my wife bought at retail and doesn't want any more?

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Ties: stefano ricci (pop and if you think it's ugly you shoulda seen the one I left), Zegna all time favorite, ben silver, italo ferretti pop, hermes pop (on ties; na until i figure out which episode of LA law it appeared on), Carroll & co english silk, rooster wool

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Alexander Wang jeans, ~2.5x true thrift pricing, 27, might return, but pop

    pop. Left one RLPL tattered shirt at $20 more than a year ago, and then left another ugly, unthrifty tie that @Jompso picked up, but otherwise I've seen no RLPL. meh on this one.

    Hermes label looks like the bootleg one, unfortunately.

    Won't be me, I don't know crap about Chanel.

    But hey, everything else looks like nice buys. I'm sure we've all gotten a fake something at one point or another. I know I have.

    Edit: Why return the Wangs?

    I can attest to this. Ridiculous grab today.

    Also, those Alex Wangs look great. Why return?

    so are db suit jackets ever quarter lined? there's an oxxford beauty that i'm sleeping on tonight and could go back for tomorrow...

    ... beefy thick fabric, single vent, but navy pinstripes? custom apparently, so maybe just a tasteless order? i dunno, seems so strange to have a pinstriped barely lined db suit jacket. could it be a pinstriped sc? likely horn buttons...

    btw, i am completely sold out on oxxford. this is the 2nd specimen i've run across and the cut and build are too beautiful.

    Oxxford is known for barely lining their jackets. Shows the skeleton (I believe is what it is referred to) so you can see the cleanliness of the handwork. Most of their stuff is quarter of half lined.

    Thrift-folk, should I keep this cashmere sweater? It's a little long and slouchy. What do?

    Layer it on top of shirts and blah blah or lift weights and use protein powder to fill it better.

    I don't want to use proton powder, that will give me acne and man-tits and shrink my balls.

    ... but seriously I'm not skinny. I'm 5'10" 180. That's overweight according to body mass index.

    Protein powder won't do any of those things but starting an entire workout regimen to fit into a sweater that is flat out too big for you in the first place is not the move. That thing is just too long and billowy. It's not flattering at all and it just doesn't fit, looks sloppy.

    Picked up a beauty overcoat today I'm hoping someone can authenticate and date for me. NA, btw.

    [​IMG]
    How do you guys add photos to your Spoilers?
    [​IMG]
    Amazing details, most likely bespoke but fits me perfectly. Blue with red windowpane. Horn buttons including lapel closer and bottom front and vent closers. Turn back cuffs without buttons. Patch pockets with horizontal flaps. Red satin lining across shoulders and down arms, also on inside of cuffs. Great hand but can't tell if it's 100% wool or possibly some silk or cashmere. Same X stitching on collar self-lining as in above photo of label, but in purple to blend in. I wore this home with my thrifted BOSS jeans, Frye Oliver boots and the wool scarf as seen on the chair above and felt very comfortable. Very nice up/down piece.

    Oh, same store saw a pair of AE walnut longwings size 9. Would most definitely have kopped but width was A (A!?!). Anyone want proxy? I could go back in the morning for photos (and to try on just in case).

    We're the same size. I've bought cashmere I knew didn't fit only because I couldn't bear to leave it (the made-in-Scotland type). You have a father-in-law or large uncle to gift it to this Christmas?
