    Just left the thrift with a broken heart - recent Brioni, navy with light blue pinstripes, double breasted, dual exhaust. Excellent condition. Unfortunately, an orphan. Made a quick trip around the store, no trousers anywhere. The worst part? My size.

    Brioni in the NWO....wow. If It was cheap enough I might have bought it and seen if the pants turn up or find a matching pair online.

    Amongst a day of mostly quantity over quality, found these in the dollar bin:

    Up where Ace is at...if the pants were donated good chance they'll turn up. You'd also be surprised what you can match up pant wise on eBay.

    Such heartbreak this week in LA...

    First this
    [​IMG]
    Sick pattern. Moth buffet. (Later S_allen_P confirms jacket is still there, sees moths eating this in-store).

    Then yesterday, the stunner.

    Finally!

    Might have been used in attack dog training. FML. Fabric felt amazing, what was left of it.

    On the plus side, I did manage to find a nice shirt for myself, oddly NWT.
    [​IMG]

    Paired up some navy Tyrwhitt orphans into a suit, left it because I was just heartbroken over the Kiton. Besides, is there even anyone here that's a 44L?

    Cross-post, and yes I know how to use google but cant even read the damn handwriting Searching google from home is a lot easier then on the phone in the store. Calzoleria Harris shoes... might need to kop at 1/2 off .... Lots of nails and script handwriting is usually good [​IMG] $65 though so left them.

    I'm confused. You finally found one in a thrift? Or the person finally lowered the price on ebay and you got it?
    It is fantastic, at any rate.

    It snowed here too. :(
    So sad.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear, I did find this at a thrift. :slayer: It's funny too, I've pulled exactly 3 things from this place since it's opened. This, my quilted Coach jacket and a Corneliani trench coat. Otherwise it's nothing but racks and racks of A&F, H&M and AE.

    Is anyone willing to proxy some blazer buttons for me from Bennos buttons in Dallas? It could be by mail order, as long as you're in the US. Happy to pay cost + shipping to Canada + small fee. Their online service doesn't ship to Canada, though they will start in a few months. But I need some NOW!

    Please PM if you can help. Thanks!

    I have almost the exact same pair, which I bought something like 6-7 years ago. Out of curiosity, how much did you snag them for?

    Sadly, 15 neck.

    Hit zero thrifts today - in Louisville for third funeral of the year. Hopefully that old saying about misfortune coming in threes is true, because this is getting rough.

    Tried to restore a little normalcy by hanging out at the local mall afterward. Strolled through the Von Maur and saw tons of Vineyard Vines and Robert Graham - it's always interesting seeing what non-thrifters will pay for this stuff new.
