    Nothing too spectacular, but highlights from the past 2 days:

    Ties. Definitely the thickest PRL I've come across.

    More Italian polos.

    A few SCs. (Zegna is a little dated but 100% cash. Sammy is 10% cash.)

    Some meh fodder. Fleece is MIUSA at least.
    [​IMG]

    PRL suede Harrington. My first leather kop, and it was actually cheap! Silk/linen flat front trousers. No piss stains.

    I feel pretty good about the Versace, but just in case, here are he deets:

    Cool! Another first. There was another one with it that was sadly worn through to the lining at the corners.

    I found some good stuff today and was ecstatic when I found these at my last stop. After looking around on the internet a guide says these only fetch $60. The few on ebay at the moment don't seem to me true vintage. Anyone ever had a pair of these? 502/Big E/scovil zipper/I think the back of the button says 15 or 16?

    Not Where but When
    my understanding is that the original factory #s were 1-digit, and then they went to 3-digits when they expanded production. can you show a good pic of the button back and just for kicks the back of the rivets too?

    the 501z was the original version of this jean, and they kept making em through the 60s but they called it the 502, just a 501 with a zipper instead of button fly. i've never seen a pair of these before, i think they should have care instructions stamped on the pocket bag? these look like they've been washed once from here - super dark. corner a date and then use 501 comps to figure out what to ask. to me these are a harder to find version of a big E 501.

    they look like a great modern size and fabulous shape. really a nice find.

    Woowww you were on the money with the wash instructions being printed on the pocket bag. Super grateful for the info @double00! shocked and at the same time I shouldn't be as the thrift thread has specialist for everything. Here are some more pics the backside of the rivets seem to be the same the front just silver. Apologies for the quality but the maybe I'm wrong about the backside of the button it looks more like an exclamation point and a 5?

    Man today work was a bitch, and I needed to decompress. So I hit the thrift after work, and damn did I decompress.

    I started off by pulling these, which are something I have been after ever since I let a pair of Big Whites pass.

    [​IMG]
    GA Black Label Limited edition Wool/Silk jeans. Really about a 35wx29, which fit me just slightly too large, but damn are they comfortable. Retail on these is somewhere in the 850-900$ range unless Im mistaken.

    Its a Tweed.

    Also I think I might hold onto this one. Somehow it came through the Thrift Hole.
    [​IMG]
    NWT Lillehammer games turtleneck. Will add this to my collection of random olympic memorabilia. Made in Norway oddly enough.

    To round out this outing I also snagged:
    Recent Canali Suit s110s, Oxxford Navy Flannel, BBGF Blazer, BBCC blazer, an Eton Gangster shirt, and a couple other random things.

    I feel better now. Whiskey helped too.
