This was posted 2 weeks ago, but I ran across this if any OC bros wanted to take a shot in the dark:

Damn, if that was Denver I'd jump on it. And then jump on the bed...

Marked medium but I gots a wild small Thierry Mugler shirt for you.
This thread has strayed and evolved, but it's not all about the $ now, it wasn't all about the clothes then.
Nothing new to post, because I have sworn off thrift shopping for a while, and been working on a pumpkin instead of my backlog:
Those are lemons for arms, that thing that looks vaguely like a pigeon is his tongue.
First time I've seen someone brag about what they donated to the thrift rather than what they bought at the thrift.
Logged on to answer a few pms might as well leave these here...
Kenzo caps are selling for 100 on grailed

@SpooPoker the only thing I can say for sure right now is that I WANT it.
My gut feeling is early 1900s--WWI or II. Quick research shows it's most likely naval: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ensign_of_the_United_States as they used 13 star flags into the 1900s. From the pictures it looks mostly machine sewn--is there any hand stitching? If I were forced to guess from what I know right now, I'd say it hung in a naval office, was used in a ceremony, or was made as a gift (or in memory). No matter what, you have something seriously valuable there. The name that keeps popping up is Jeff Bridgman, an antique flag dealer in Pennsylvania. He buys flags, so maybe shoot him some detailed photos and see what he says. I'll keep researching because it seriously interests me.
Oh, and what does the fabric feel like?
This one is similar but reads older, I think:
Had the same thing happen with this
Shit, you guys are pulling grailz while I get thirsty because of this damn drought...
Haven't been able to thrift for like 3-4 days cuz I keep waking up too late. Fml.
Even better... My last stop today was like a "What does Fueco really want to find today in his size" romp. Patagonia Retro X, Patagonia R3, Ibex pullover, and a Mountain Hardwear Windstopper tech shirt. All that was missing was some Voormi goodness, but I'm working on that.
Is Sartorialism anyone here? Just bought this and obviously they want to cancel now, what do I do - I've never been in this situation:
If it's somebody here I'll do it no problem.
