Slightly better photos. Great condition. Kind of a loden green color, I guess?
I'm in Chicago thrifting. Already hit a few good spots. Does anyone have any suggestions?
If you had @SpooPoker 's name for Thriftmas, you would be finished shopping.
Stopped at a little hole in the wall shop today and found this great Pendleton tweed plus three ancient Burberry shirts. Seriously can anyone date these?
You are dangerously close to me in Tampa. I actually just stayed there about a month ago for the first time. Rooms were suprisingly small, but it is a really cool place.
Lo sport, and a pretty unusual one, i'd not seen this before. i brake for ringers, so...
she shawls sweatshirts by the seashore. billy reid. nice!
celine ponybit on the left, NOS PRL on the right.
the celine i cherry picked from a haul near me. they had a bunch of etro, hilditch key, versace some other stuff. i dunno, maybe i'll go back...
ALSO: there was a supposed Vuitton vernis kusama but i have no idea how to evaluate that stuff. the way vuitton works you gotta know how every model is made to spot legit or fake, so i left it. i was muttering at the bag in the racks and some lady heard me and immediately bought it and she was fucking stoked! but her enthusiasm don't mean shit to me, i still have no idea whether legit or not. kinda haunting me... might've made a mistake...
I hear Gary is beautiful this time of year..
Couple of interesting finds from today. Both my size and NA for the time being.
Did not know CT made cashmere sweaters.
Was very surprised at the resale on these things, even when made in Korea.
That CT looks excellent man^
Some of the more interesting shit from today.
Incotex kind of Jean cut chinos. Paul Smith Kicks. Baller Stingray Skin Clutch
Vintage french made YSL velvet with doze peaks. Cotton helmet one button.
I'm from Wisconsin. Don't really care for Indiana.

Paulrose Products is awesome stuff. They're like a niche heritage sub-brand of Naked & Famous. However, the term "sub brand" makes you think lower quality right? Not true. They are actually way better than N&F.
I thrifted a pair of Paulrose Products jeans awhile ago, and without knowing the brand... I knew they had to be extremely high end jeans. There are so many good craftsmanship details on their products. Their jeans retail for like $225-250 if I recall correctly. I'm guessing that shirt is like $185+. They are comparable to Tellason, 3Sixteen, etc.
Killer score on that BB Leather!
ya the bb is going along with the zegna xxx but I'm keeping the paulrose at least through winter.
