    Glad to post a few finds again. Mostly I've been working and thrifting in @Cj52racers wake. Been a lotta

    [​IMG]


    and a lotta

    [​IMG]

    and those were priced at 19.99. at goodwill. did not kop. Is it thrifting if I want to get rid of the stuff my wife bought at retail and doesn't want any more?

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Ties: stefano ricci (pop and if you think it's ugly you shoulda seen the one I left), Zegna all time favorite, ben silver, italo ferretti pop, hermes pop (on ties; na until i figure out which episode of LA law it appeared on), Carroll & co english silk, rooster wool

    Alexander Wang jeans, ~2.5x true thrift pricing, 27, might return, but pop

    Hermes label looks like the bootleg one, unfortunately.

    Won't be me, I don't know crap about Chanel.

    But hey, everything else looks like nice buys. I'm sure we've all gotten a fake something at one point or another. I know I have.

    Edit: Why return the Wangs?

    I can attest to this. Ridiculous grab today.

    Also, those Alex Wangs look great. Why return?

    so are db suit jackets ever quarter lined? there's an oxxford beauty that i'm sleeping on tonight and could go back for tomorrow...

    ... beefy thick fabric, single vent, but navy pinstripes? custom apparently, so maybe just a tasteless order? i dunno, seems so strange to have a pinstriped barely lined db suit jacket. could it be a pinstriped sc? likely horn buttons...

    btw, i am completely sold out on oxxford. this is the 2nd specimen i've run across and the cut and build are too beautiful.

    Oxxford is known for barely lining their jackets. Shows the skeleton (I believe is what it is referred to) so you can see the cleanliness of the handwork. Most of their stuff is quarter of half lined.

    Thrift-folk, should I keep this cashmere sweater? It's a little long and slouchy. What do?

    Layer it on top of shirts and blah blah or lift weights and use protein powder to fill it better.
