    Thanks guys, very helpful.

    The notch on the sleeve also seems to tie to Fioravanti listed on the bay.

    Oxxford's lapel buttonholes are longer - an inch plus, like the way Savile Row does them.

    I feel your pain, my UK iFriend. That is how most Danish thrift stores look in terms of size and inventory.

    I'm going to leave it from now on unless it's for personal use. Last 3-4 pieces I picked up were really nice. One was a wool jacket with lazer cut-out label. Really recent. Sold for $29. The rest sold for peanuts as well. Stone Island, on the other hand is gold, if it has the logo.

    Good example of people paying up just for a label (in this case, a small, button-on compass logo patch).

    The more you know, thanks Nat.

    It'll pay for my ebay fees I'm sure.

    Lately, I've been viewing the sweater areas with an extra eye just for Polo bears. Recently someone threw up a t-shirt with a Polo bear. Now this.
    I'd like to ask what things can I put off my list (Polo bear-wise) !?

    I know nothing about sneakers. These were super cheap and fit. Are they anything? [​IMG]

    Haven't gotten out much this week.

    Big E Type III from the other day. Available, it's tiny (tagged 38, but probably more of a 36

    So, my friends parents own a thrift and yesterday I got to dig through some of their stuff that was already sorted. I also went back today and helped sort for a few hours and will be going back Monday to help them go through a couple of MASSIVE donations (here's hoping for grails).

    Patagonia Two-tone Synchilla is a rare XS (my size, but not sure if keeping).

    Only got to one store this week.

    @Jackstraw001 I was the guy that picked up the docs for his wife. What double00 advised was to look for the 8 hole. I didn't find those, but I thought these were worth picking up:

    [​IMG]

    20 hole patent leather

    Can I ask for some help on this one? Found vintage Schott, but not sure it's good. I've tried searching with every key word I can think of (rancher coat, western coat, fleece lined leather, etc. etc.) and can't find anything like it. Everything fleece lined seems to be suede (or true shearling). No full grain leather to be found.

    [​IMG]

    It has some very light water damage and obviously the fleece is dirty, but otherwise in great shape. Leather's still soft. Buttons are plastic.

    Thanks!
