    I took me 25 minutes to upload these photos. I will post photos of the Church's and other items as bandwidth permits.

    It's atrocious. Most of the stores have moved to a new business model where you pay by the kilo rather than by the item; there are two classifications of clothing, which affects pricing. There are some great accessories in many places, but they're usually overpriced. I was at one store where thrifted Hermes ties were more than new ones. All in all, in my many thrifting trips in the city, the best I ever found was a Brioni jacket in a size that wasn't my own. Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did/do.

    I was told HERE that tag was Isaia.

    It was news to me, so I can't say for sure.

    I'm 90% sure that's Isaia. 2 reasons:

    1. BB GF used to be made by Isaia years back

    2. The font, lettering and the design of the tag is consistent with Isaia, even if it's not the exact same. Compare the lettering and borders on the tag on the Isaia tag to see what i mean.

    I may be wrong, I don't really know enough. I'd trust someone elses word over mine easily.

    Too lazy to take a picture, but I found these Filson Shelter Cloth Brush pants yesterday with suspenders still attached, my size too (40w). I'm not a hunter though, so they are available.

    what day do you usually do your 13 hour adventure? Do you always end up finding good stuff?

    Almost always on a Saturday, since I have an almost-full-time job Mon-Fri. Usually find some good stuff to make it worthwhile, though the last time I went it was pretty disappointing - came home with about one and a half bags of nothing that was brag-worthy. I have one store as my main destination (a non-thrift resale shop), then hit 2 Goodwill's on the way back home. I barely even shop/thrift in the ATL area any longer.


    OK, since 265mm is the same as 26.5cm, that would make sense. Thanks!

    Thrifting in Paris sucks. The best/closest I got was an overpriced vintage shop on St Germain.

    Quick brag - had a good Saturday, reunited 3 suits, one BB NWT, 2 Boss, in a store with stupid pricing that makes suits $35 no matter what, and sport coats/orphans all over the map, so reunited suits cost less than sold together ones, guess they're paying me to scavenger hunt. Found one of the suit coats in with the women's section.
    Different store, put together a 3pc J.Crew cotton from 3 different parts of the store
    Big find today, first for me:

    Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't too hopeful that, at least in the main shops, would be anything great from the research I'd done, but, thought I'd ask anyway.

    My fiancé is doing some vintage shopping while we're there, so I'll tag along with her.
