    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    Any ideas who this is supposed to be? Took a gamble and bought this bust/sculpture for $3. Seems done by hand with artist name on back. Usually see this type of thing for composers, but not seeing a striking resemblance to any of the big names.

    How would you rate the condition of these shoes?

    In my opinion the sole wear would indicate they were worn a handful of times. If I had to guess, the creases are as deep as they are because the shoes were not stored with shoe trees. This can be helped, as others have mentioned. You can find similar shoes on ebay, simply search "Norvegese". I...

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    I bought a cheap sport coat once to experiment trying to take the shoulder pads out. When you take them out, there is still the excess fabric that was there to account for the padding. The shoulders don't lay as flat/natural as you'd like, so no point really IMO.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    Haven't been posting much here, but crossed one off my list and wanted to share. $6.50. A couple moth holes but i'll be damned if I leave behind the 'cuna.

    Zegna Saks 5th Ave quality?

    From what I've seen at my local Saks Off 5th I frequent, they are similar no matter where made. If you are interested in Zegna suits, it is important to remember that Zegna has their clothing lines, and they also sell fabric to other manufacturers. This is an old thread that highlights some of...

    Zegna Saks 5th Ave quality?

    Those suits use Zegna fabric, but have no other connection to Zegna. In my experience they are either half canvas or fused, never full canvas.

    How long till Hermes cartoon/icon ties are laughably outdated? (like acid wash jeans)

    Certainly fake. An easy way to tell is that the direction of the silk twill should go diagonally from about 11 o'clock to 5. Plus, that keeper label looks poorly done.

    Actually, the same happened in Los Angeles. There was one blocks from UCLA and for whatever reason it wasn't amazing. They closed it and eventually opened one in Santa Monica, not too far away

    ^ A Beauty. TJ Maxx releasing some gems the past couple months. Got this one a month back or so. Seems it is luck of the draw who prices the stuff. A Marshall's nearby also got Kiton/Phineas Cole, etc. but they priced it all at $1k.
