    One stop, one pop. Dismal otherwise.

    Some shit I copped.

    Tie game kinda lacking

    Thomas Pink by Charles Hill, Bizzocchi, Hermes, Talbott Carmel (it was free toss in), Zegna x2, Santoni 7 Fold (apparently quite rare)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Brioni, Charvet x2 (2nd is exclusive for Mr. Guy Beverly Hills), Etro x2, APC
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    T&A Bespoke, Etro, Paul Stuart, Skeet
    [​IMG]

    BEEN HAD. Older with a perfect Been Had patch, don't know shit beyond the Polo Sport collection I had and sent to @PLaydice but this seemed worth the couple bucks

    New model Zegnas
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    NWOT's Prada x2 slacks, FF black twill flannel and gray
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Coming across Roderick Charles on this side of the Atlantic is probably as rare as bespoke Savile Row stuff. I've found one tie and that's it. Unfortuantely it doesn't share the same value as Savile Row, but love the stuff nonetheless.

    Varvatos mainline by Lardini...it was cheap, peak lapels, fuck it
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The fabric on these models never ceases to amaze me.

    Passed on this a few times but I did well with an older C&C pure cashmere piece, and this one is way nicer with leather buttons so I pulled the trigger

    Don't know what the fuck Guiseppe is however this blazer is 100% Alpaca, absolutely amazing to the touch, patch pockets, and I believe that's a D'Avenza manufacturers tag
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    1 wimminz post. Resale on Ferragamo sucks if worn, however if they are brand new and have a gold Ferragamo piece of metal knotting the bow on the toes, then it doesn't.

    Probably the best SW&D line there was from 2000-2008, Nom De Guerre was my favorite line by far, all made in Japan, can't believe I thrifted a piece. Unfortunately, having a store that is unmarked with any sign and has a side street entrance that leads 3 stories underground beneath a random Swatch store in the middle of Manhattan being your only location of business, and Union LA, didn't seem to work out in their favor.

    Fuuckk.....One of my saved sellers has a Rive Gauche suit mislisted that I'm waiting to pull the trigger on. Don't know why I haven't yet but one click and I could flip it for 4 times asking price. Should probably just go ahead and take care of that...

    I almost had the TRAD version of Thriftening today, but I passed on several things. The guys at AAAC Trad would have been in Heaven.

    Went to an estate sale today and it was a TRAD dream. LOTS (probably 40) of Gitman Shirts, LOTS of Skinny regimental ties, 20 OCBD shirts (local store brand), Norman Hilton Suits, 4-5 vintage Sack suits (local store brand), several pairs of Saddle Shoes, and more.

    I did buy a few things. 3 pair of Vintage Polo braces (braided leather), trafalgar braces, a GORGEOUS 3 Piece Vintage H. Freeman suit, a Chester Barrie Suit, a Norman Hilton Blazer, a couple of other suits and I did get a few ties.

    Will post pics later.

    At another sale, I got a Pendleton Robe, an Old Cotton//Silk Robe, an amazing women's Italian Silk scarf (don't know maker yet) a wild looking Kalaroo (similar to Coogie) Cardigan, a BB Pima Cotton Sweater, a pair of Magnanni Woven leather tassel loafers for myself, a pair of Seiko Pure Titanium Eyeglasses, a couple nice cashmere scarves and a 22 piece set of Corningware I hope to list today!

    One my thrifts got a donation of 45 Norman Hilton suits at once. Wanted to proxy for @capnwes cuz that stuff seamed right up the Seam Store ally but shipping all that wool would have cost so fucking much. It was kinda annoying too cuz they literally put every one of them out.

    Thanks for the report, glad I didn't order. I noticed when I zoomed on a large screen that there were noticeable flaws in the stock images of the ties on sale so I did not kop. I recall seeing some Kiton ties at NMLC last time I was there in similar condition for about the same price.

    Working through the backlog. Couple recent scores:


    VTG US Made Willis & Geiger A-2. My first good leather jacket cop. Really wish this was a 40 or 42.

    My first Hermes.

    The keeper/label is missing but the tie is a keeper anyway. May wear it to a Christmas party tonight.
