    A few things from this weekend:

    [​IMG]

    Tralfalfgar black belt, Tralfalgar brown belt, Allen Edmonds oxblood belt, Tralfalgar braces.

    [​IMG]


    Allen Edmonds Wilberts that had been there so long, they were half-off. They're a little beat up, but Wilberts are supposed to be. Good for long walks in the upcoming 9 months of cold rain until next summer rolls around.

    [​IMG]

    Allen Edmonds Cole penny loafers in oxblood. These might be in heavy rotation.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Pop on Gucci. Tag looks like the ones I've seen here before. It would be awesome if it was Tom Ford era but I'm guessing it predates him.

    [​IMG]

    First Vineyard Vines ties I've found that I would actually be willing to wear.

    [​IMG]

    Thrift fit. Shirt is Gant, made in Portugal. Suit is H. Freeman and Son. Don't worry, I wasn't planning on wearing the two together, I just thrifted them both the same day. This isn the second suit I've successfully reunited, which made me come to the unfortunate realization that the really nice H. Freeman and Son "sport coat" I found a while back probably had matching pants if I had just looked for them.

    Jacket waist will need to be taken in, but the shoulders and sleeves look OK. The pants will need to be let out an inch to accommodate my stilt legs but that's always the case. There's enough material in the hem that I don't think it will be a problem. It doesn't show up that well in this photo but the suit is navy with blood-red windowpaning. It's not as nice as the Zegna su misura that was sadly a little to big for me, but it will provide a much-needed upgrade to the Jones New York suits left over from when I didn't know any better.

    Heart skipped a beat when I saw these today...

    [​IMG]

    Ended up being one of 7 pairs of Been Had, not bad.

    [​IMG]

    Possible best find is this super old t-shirt. Never seen another like it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm almost 100% sure it's John Lennon, a rough illustration of this classic photo of him with his Rickenbocker.
    [​IMG]

    It was stained AF when I got it, but did the treatment on it and it's definitely come back to life. I'm going to have to do some more research.

    [​IMG]
    Also, I miss the old Kanye.
    Ha!

    All thrifted by me over the summer.

    Now that Marc ecko? Awww yisss. Some of that would make me :bounce2: if it was on a rack. (Eh. Shuddup, i can hear you guys laughing) - at our age? With what we have access to? That stuff can still fit in with the O.G sw&d swag.

    @nataku sadly yes its for real. EBTH used to be local, and there were a few deals sprinkled in, but they just hit the jackpot on investment, and now they're nation wide and everything goes for retail+. Most people just get stuck in the bidding aspect and buy crap for outrageous prices. Used couch? that'll be 1000 dollars please.

    Gotta be early 90s...maybe even when Miyake was still designing. That is the oldest tag I've ever seen.

    Vilebrequins are boss, love mine, and each pair is limited + one of a kind, never made again, making each design rare, thus all the makings for a solid secondary market.....except are you allowed to flip used swimwear on eBay? I'm pretty sure you aren't but they of course need to find the listing first to take it down.... when there were gay men using ebay as essentially their own version of those Chinese vending machines except making like 400 bucks on a pair of old socks, eBay stepped in and changed what is allowed and not and I think anything worn skin to skin beneath the belt didn't make the cut....maybe I'm wrong here...

    Had one of my better weekends here in CLE so far. I did not have high expectations for the weekend because all the "flippers" would be out but I came up pretty well.

    Nothing available unless noted.

    Started off by making my first ever homemade salsa. Turned out bomb.com.

    [​IMG]


    Then started the whole weekend out with these which fit me surprisingly well. Found them with a broken zipper. Luckily my coworker is a seamstress on the side so that worked out well.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I really want to try to focus on generic crew necks like this since I wear mostly vintage runners on foot, I feel it'll go well. For some reason I love this thing.
    [​IMG]

    This is sweet.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm sure this isn't "the Polo we're looking for" but the branding is just right for me and I love dark green.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    What do you call this? Raw edges or something?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm too unsure if this is a thing but this is amazing. Is this a specific pattern that has a name? Super solid, no holes, vintage, wool, and I tried to capture how awesome the speckling is but I have 0 natural light in my apt. Hi Winter. Available.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    No cashmere left behind? Available.
    [​IMG]

    Jesus I love this thing. I had a prelim. PM set up for @SpooPoker looking to inquire on the (white?) one he recently found AND an eBay search saved, both of which can be deleted now. I am not sure what attracts me to this piece so much but I love the versatility of it and how many pairs of sneakers I can rock it with.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This thing is awesome. I don't know what it is or how old it is but I love it. Anyone know how old it may be?

    Finally had a decent little tie haul:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Available
    [​IMG]

    For some reason, these random shop ties always feel so well made.

    [​IMG]

    I picked this up because it was $2.50, but I doubt I'll ever wear it. What would you wear with this?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This Polo tie is by far better constructed, better feeling, and lays better than the two Riccis above. IDK what is is about it but this tie but it is very well made for RLBL. Can I assume all made in Italy ones are as such. The color, pattern, weight, it's all there for me.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everything checks out for me on this one. For $2, why not?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Size 2.5C. 50% off put them at... $2.50. Already offered them to my coworker who is too pumped to give them to his little one.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And that's a wrap for 50% off day. Pretty solid weekend and I'm pumped about some of those finds.
