    This sounds like it was tailor made for my bizarre measurements.

    I banished myself from thrifting until the end of the month too!

    I have to catch up on a lot of other stuff and the time commitment was pretty high.
    I do it more as a hobby, I enjoy the browse so I spend a lot of time just looking at things.

    Found these shoes a month or two ago but forgot to post. Better late than never, and I've been totally striking out on finding any half-decent shoes lately.

    Ferragamo
    [​IMG]

    Bally
    [​IMG]

    Ferragamo, apparently owned by someone who didn't know that stores sell something called "shoe polish." They shined up nice enough with a Saphir regimen but the vamps are kind of beat. Hopefully I'll get enough wearings out of them to justify the $6.
    [​IMG]

    AE Bridgeton. Decided they're just too snug for me. 10 C and available.
    [​IMG]

    Now for the last week or two worth of finds...

    Couple of Pendletons
    [​IMG]

    Prana climbing pants (holla atcha Fueco). I don't climb anymore but these are comfy as hell, great for hiking or just bumming around.
    [​IMG]

    Couple of BB shirts. Not super brag worthy but for the fact that I rarely run across my size of 15.5-34/35.
    [​IMG]

    Zegna and Paul Smith
    [​IMG]

    Finally a Brioni shirt in my size that's not trashed!

    TIES

    Knits in staple colors from un-noteworthy makers.
    [​IMG]

    Liberty of London (because I like it), J Crew (English silk), Hugo Boss
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    NWT Charles Tyrwhitt, Murray's Toggery Shop whale pattern (n/a), PRL cotton, wool blackwatch from the old Georgetown University Shop (n/a)

    [​IMG]


    7x Dunhill
    [​IMG]

    The third one from the left is houndstoothy silk/linen awesomeness, been looking for something like it for quite a while so that one is n/a.
    [​IMG]

    SCs

    Couple of Harris Tweeds in my size. Forgot to lock the camera exposure settings so the pics don't show it well, but the second one is significantly darker than the first. So in my mind, it's a totally justifiable use of closet space to keep both!

    Southwick navy w/ light blue pinstripe, might not have to alter this one at all, n/a.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    And to cap it off, a Brioni that may have never been worn after being tailored. Tag still on pants, came with spare buttons and fabric swatches. Not sure what the specific name of this fabric is, but it has herringbone type rows of alternating twill, and is a mix of green, blue and light brown. Looks kind of greenish-gray from a distance. My first thrifted Brioni, ain't spoilerin'.

    That Brioni suit is gorgeous, congrats! Well done all around, gents. So, my first manniquin came today! Excuse the crappy pic and wrinkled jacket, I just grabbed the first one I saw. But I think it looks pretty good! With better lighting, and background, of course. [​IMG]

    I would totally rock the shit out of that made in Mexico PRL if it were my size!

    That is the Daks but not sure if it's any good...I usually pass on those unless it fit me like a glove.

    HOw much did you pay for it?
    What's going on? You ok?

    You know what they say something about a pic is worth a blah blah blah!

    First time posting pictures, hope I have buggered it up…

    One of the many vintage Japanese oddities that on occasion pop up online secondhand in China, picked up for 15 USD. Henry Poole for Matsuzakaya.

    What's your size for those brands? I pass on them often so I might as well pick them up for a SF homie. I also seem to run across a lot of North Face shirts and pants -- are those things you'd like as well?

    This motherfucker, from ebay, three weeks after the auction ended.

    Am going to keep the belt, but cannot in good conscience give you a good rating on the way the belt was described.
    Clearly, the most wear to a belt is where the tongue and buckle hold the belt together; this belt shows substantial wear on two belt holes.
    Any comments before I publish my rating?
    Thanks

    My response:

    Dear mousekin1010,

    Sir, I told you that up that I would refund your money from the beginning . It has now been, what, three weeks, and you say you are going to keep the belt but still give me a negative rating? It's people like you that make it frustrating that sellers can no longer leave negative feedback. I know the belt had negligible wear and the color was absolutely shown correctly in the photos listed. I also know that there are some people out there with nothing better to do than to harass other people over the internet. Sir, get a life, and next time, stick to retail.
