    One more pic of that lining. If it fit me, I'd be tempted to wear it inside out.

    I know I asked this already, but what is the 'SSSSSSSSSS' logo on the navy blazer I picked up today? I've seen pictures of it on this thread before.

    Thanks!

    Did one of you gank those sharkskin Wartons from me on the Bay, or did I get had by a schmuck?

    These are pretty valuable. I still haven't found one yet. This and the Ben Silver are the only things I would have grabbed. Pass on the polyester next time.

    Thanks. I had found that, but didn't read the last post since everyone was just conjecturing. Saw that the guy at the end validated it. Thanks again.

    Don't believe I insinuated that anything I found was priceless or an amazing find. Excuse me for thinking you guys would have some class... And correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the title of this thread the Thrift Bragging Thread?

    Few less of these and you wouldn't have to wear a size 50 [​IMG]

    Without a doubt the best one I got. Thought the others were interesting, had good variety and a good start to my collection. Sale at the GW so only spent $5 on the whole shebang.

    Any idea the make? Looked around for a bit but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks for the input, I'm aware the others weren't great but I literally had 3 ties in my drawer, they were on sale so couldn't resist adding some variety :)

    Take it easy on the newbie! (Also nothing on the Gucci? That was the only other I assumed had any value) Thanks guys

    If you read this thread all the way through you will notice a progression of thrifting prowess. When people first jump on they are just learning and start posting Polo and BB ties, which while fine ties are not very rare or exciting. You on the other hand picked up a bunch of polyester ties. Why? They are crap, even if you didn't own a single tie I still wouldn't buy them. If you go thrifting once or twice a week within a few months you could fill a drawer with good to great quality ties. For instance you found a Ben Silver tie, good brand, good quality stick it in your drawer and go again. Maybe you find a Brooks Brother tie, stick it in your drawer and go again. But Polyester is ugly, has no resale value and wouldn't be worn by any member of a forum entitled "Style Forum". Gucci doesn't get a lot of love here either, nor on eBay where you can see many of their ties selling for under $5 with free shipping. So I recommend you take all of those ties back except the Ben Silver, the Gucci if you want it for personal use, and that Peek-a-Boo tie.
