    Never seen this white label before.... Age?? Not that it makes it special or anything.
    Fully canvassed cotton "wash & wear" was kind of odd combo though.

    those belts one of them was alligator grain calf.

    Alright... I'm gonna try to keep up in here again, and I've actually been thrifting a little bit again. Let's see....

    I e-thrifted this from eBay in preparation for Fall

    Also e-thrifted this Trafalgar crocodile belt that wasn't listed as croc
    [​IMG]

    Thrifted this BB made in Italy with Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric. Between losing weight and BB's generous cuts this fits me

    Picked up this really nice tweed from a no-name store brand... fully canvassed with a hand-stitched collar. Fits great.

    I'd appreciate some feedback on these. I picked them up and they looked unworn but very dusty. After a good cleaning they look brand new. I'm thinking these are old Allen Edmonds when the Rancourts were making for them, but there's no brand tagging. They're mocassin construction with hand-stitching, a Vibram sole, and a beveled waist.

    I picked this up today not thinking it would fit, but for some reason it does. Anyone know who makes in Italy for Dunhill?

    Also picked up this J Crew unlined, unstructured madras, size medium but it fits like around a 40R, so too small for me

    That BB Madison suit is really nice!
    The Dunhill is made by Zegna (older label)..... I think.

    They all look to say "grain" which would be a calf grain and not "genuine"

    +1 on what Brianpore said. They are just embossed on calfskin to look like gator. Still, for $1 each I couldn't complain.

    found this in another city. this store had the most good stuff i've ever seen in one place, I think, but all orphans or damaged in some way - the only thing I thought was good enough to leave with is right here

    Hmmm....IDK...As much as I'm a fan of RRL, I can't help but to feel they are overrated...I've just picked up a RRL OCBD for above thrift prices and I'm just not thrilled with the quality...Shoot, call me a fan boy but I would just save the money and go through Gustin for a pair or two.

    Cafe racer...As in cafe racer leather jacket like the ones Members Only makes? lol
    That's nice! [​IMG]
    Damn, seeing this makes me regret on passing on of these a few months back...
    Welcome back, dude! I was wondering where you went!
    you've had became a lawyer! [​IMG]

    I get a lot of these. The jackets do well on their own too, because of the casual styling. They were available in 2 button and 3 roll 2. With flap pockets, full patch pockets or flap patch like you have. I have seen them in tan, beige, gray and sort-of fatigue green. I assume there are blue ones out there, but have yet to see one. I have 5 or 6 right now. I even have one in the laundry room for a trial run. I think they are 1950'-60's but I have never been able to say for sure.

    I found a very, very similar Polo Italy in a thrift. I too cannot wait for fall and just hope it gets cold enough down here to wear that all day everyday.

    I have a blue one in my closet. I don't often wear a suit, but when I need to, it's usually this one.

    Awesome!! I myself have yet to embrace the cropped trou look, but am hoping to make it happen this winter with a few different pairs of pants.
