    WTF! Did I just count 30 Brioni ties?!

    Fuck yes! All of Nepenthes' brands are things! I've been on the hunt for one in my size since forever! Anything from them would make me happy! I really really really would like some Rebuild by Nepenthes! But they are kinda like bite off Kapital. But I don't care! Oh yeah, they own Engineered Garments. How crazy is that?!

    Bro, hit up @Thrift Vader he has some N(n).

    Barrel, you're probably right. hard to tell if it's dots or stripes. Just seemed not very uniform, so I guessed haha

    Hurrah for Fall rummage sales. So Pretty! Some Nylon runs, otherwise pretty nice shape. It was filthy but one wash freshened it right up. Made in the U.S.A Starter. Available. [​IMG]

    NWOB Venetas, but I've never handled a pair and am wondering if these check out as well.
    For what it's worth, the leather feels good and construction and seams look very clean. Would love to have anyone chime in for peace of mind, though!

    Probably the best "thrift" this week was heading to a private and intimate event to see these guys last night for free:

    I assume nothing in this photo is available? -- All you sports wear people: I can't understand it. You all say it's easy money but I've sold big team names for pennies. In fact, I sold a Redwing jersey I would rather have kept for starting price. And I have a Yankee jersey that's rolled over 2 weeks in a row. WTF.

    Gucci and Versace are real.

    You are a lucky son of a bitch. And not cause you found Gucci and Versace.

    I passed up a Burberry for Nordstrom navy wool jacket and pants yesterday - could not find a size tag anywhere - $20 - and a Nordstrom navy windowpane 2-button jacket with Loro Piana fabric, $25. I'm willing to go back and get sizes/measurements if there's any interest in a proxy buy. I didn't think the prices were that great, but I could stand and pet Loro Piana fabric all day. :D

    12 & 14 year old boys. 6'1" 210 lb for 14 year old and 5'10" 160 for the 12 year old... So probably not gonna fit any Kids clothes. I was excited, my oldest has now gotten a little bigger than me and stopped grabbing my shirts and shoes for his dances and sports banquets. I actually had to buy him his own stuff.
