Whut. Thu. Fug.
My ACTUAL redwing sweater sold for $5.
This belonged to another thread member as well.
Hey @div25sec9 welcome back!
Took lunch break. Went thrifting instead. Thrifting>eating. Couple stops.
Beams Japan (Mainline?), Coast Italy, Eton
Brioni x2, RLPL (there's a purple windowpane on the shirt)
RLPL x4 (Green is Linen)
Battistoni Grey 70% Cash 30% wool sweater
Nearly brand new Aquascutum Rain Jacket made in England
Never seen this line before, but it's surprisingly well made and the cashmere was way too good to pass for the price
Sick Zegna Blazer (Wool, Silk, Linen blend)
Never worn. Single Breasted Peak Lapels grey pinstriped BB Regent Suit made in Italy by Lardini
Helmut Lang Grey suit, Made In Italy
Paul Smith London Byard wool Suit
Usually I'd pass, but this is brand new, no synthentic, and that pattern is ridiculous
Ermenegildo Zegna 15milmil15 Super 170s suit in charcoal with bold purple pinstripe
Lastly, when linda leaves things like this without keywords like Cashmere in the title, and in my size, I'm obliged to take them. Just won about 20 minutes ago. Brioni Pure Cashmere Blue Glen Plaid. I wouldn't say true e-thrift, but about a third or less of what it's worth.
That is all.
Shout out to the Captn Wes for two gorgeous pants. A clean flat front mint looking Zanella and a spring time linen Brooks Brothers.
Nikes aren't worth anything, but I'm sure those are in the back of your mind now
Do they have a name? I don't think I'll be wearing them myself.
Pink hickey Freeman cashmere
Anyone ever heard of this?
Really not sure why I find so many freakin hilfiger sailing jackets around here
with all due respect, is it really all that hard to do your own homework? everything you're asking about is easily researched
Can't remember the name, but sold in all Champs/Foot Locker's/etc.
For someone less familiar with niche streetwear and sneakers, this isn't something conspicuous. Nike and Ralph Lauren have been making this stuff for decades; what is good and what isn't, is not apparent to the bystander, or even the people who read this thread daily. A lot of the information on this thread is really nuanced, to get upset with me for it is a bit harsh.
Edit: Thanks, @madeinbogota
FWIW, I wouldn't have a clue what that name of the Nike's are.
(but if you google the model number on the inside of the sneaker you can find out @Principle)
The P Wing sweater is an epic score on so many levels - but the fact that he posted it and had no idea about it makes it 10x better for me.
But being resourceful is a lot better than not bothering and just asking questions for others who have done the homework, to answer. Some stuff you just gotta ask, there's no question there, but some stuff can be found out on ones own just given a slight bit of effort. I think that is all that was meant. I don't think it was meant as being upset with you and being harsh.
All it takes is one donation to make the day. Hit 3 stores and came out empty handed from all of them. Feeling pretty bummed, I hit one more, just because it was on the way home. Glad I did. I got really lucky because all this managed to make it from the new arrival racks to the actual racks. Pretty sure this donation was undisturbed. Sorry for the crappy dark photos. Apparently the sun goes down at 3:30 now so by the time I got home, it was almost dark. I'll have better pics tomorrow. Also found suits, all within a few years old. Samuelsohn, Zegna and Varvatos. No pics because it was pitch dark out by the time I got to them.
