    Oooh on that Davies and Son. Some things that are less stellar. Thrifted this a while back and wore it once, but it fits way too large, and I really felt like I was insulting Magnum.

    That place really has no business referring to itself as a thrift store. Any place that charges $65 for Allen Edmonds, regardless how good of condition they are in, is not a thrift store..

    Hey everyone, went out today in a new area. Didn't come home with a ton but found a couple things that seemed to be quality. First is a very nice Canali 2 pc. suit. Great color, great condition, unfortunately not my size. Next, I found this cool coat. It is a blend of wool, nylon and cashmere. Feels very soft and nice, also in great condition. No indication of maker other than the fabric tag and is made in Bulgaria. It's a nice dark green color. I'm assuming it's nothing groundbreaking but was half off and pretty cool. If anyone can fill me in a bit on the tag of the coat that would be cool. Otherwise, carry on! P.S. Sorry for the crap pictures, don't have the space here for a proper setup.

    Someone is going to get in trouble pricing these ties like this. Earlier in the week I found another EZ tie for $15, now this Couture for $8. Hey, I'm not complaining

    That's not Synchilla fleece. I think it's a retro-x fleece in a pullover style. Women's? I don't recognize the style off the top of my head. I'll check my late 90s catalogs after the debate.

    The stamp is Austrian.

    I thought it was Austrian, based on the stamp. This def isnt my field. It looks like a political document.

    Can't find the exact model, only thing that's kinda trippin me up is the color and font of the model number. Gonna have to do a little more digging in these to say for sure. Everything else looks pretty good from what I can see

    I think its hungarian, but from the Austro-Hungarian empire. Their currency was called krone.

    I just remember that as well. The writing looks eastern European to me. Perhaps Hungarian? That would've been commonly used in the empire.

    one of the dates reads serpnia which is the polish word for august.

    also, glowny means "main", or "chief" in polish which makes sense that it's in the heading.
