    Any help with this label? It's a local tailor. Seems well made and tags all say Italy. [​IMG]

    EDIT - In all seriousness that's absolutely amazing.

    Different store I'm assuming?... possibly different cities or states altogether. I left some other Canali stuff there though.

    Here are my relatively meager finds of the day:

    Paul Smith trousers for myself and a Purple Label tie I'll probably wear once then flip

    this weeks haul. have no energy to take pics of all the shirts, maybe later this weekend. my two cents about RG shirts: while I could never pull off wearing one, I do appreciate all the detailing that goes into their shirts. I also appreciate that when you find and list them, they sell within 24 hours usually. i've noticed too that the bigger the size, the faster it goes.
    RG x 6, 3 sold already

    So found a NWT Calvin Klein SC with Marshall's tags. Stopped there on way to next thrift stop, returned it and got $64 store credit. Used that and $1 out of pocket on these two PRL pieces. Both Made in Italy.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then the selvedge threatening happened. Started with "The Unbranded Brand" jeans

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Then 6 pairs of NWT & NWOT Levi's Made & Crafted Selvedge Tack Slim Jeans. waist sizes 28-32, lengths 32-34.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Levis 501-0217 Selvedge

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then a pair of used, broken in 501XX Selvedge, someone cut bottom cuff off, not sure how old these are, but very faded, and have more of a Dad jean sizing to them than the waifish hipster sizing of the others.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hit the women's section as mens was dry. Don't often have enough time to hit both in same visit, but first thing I see hanging off end of rack is Mountain Hardwear ski/snow stretch pants, women size Large.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Went to the business suit section next, got a J Crew Ludlow 34S SC a while ago, figured I'd try my luck again. Found an Armani Exchange SC immediately.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then another AX, 40S. Pics suck, it is a dark blue herringbone pattern.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then this, Rag & Bone Harrow jean jacket, size S

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Was going to check out, but saw they had wheeled out a couple racks of mens stuff. Asked if I could look through the suits and Sc's, got the ok. First thing I get is EZ Nap Couture suit. Pants have a single pleat. Size 40R

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    EZ soft, 100% Mohair, 44R, unvented. Color is closest to pic of EZ Soft label

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Another EZ Soft, wool/silk/linen, 44R, unvented. First pic is color of SC

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I don't usually grab Boss, but the fabric of this SC is amazing. My size, so NA. My question is has anyone had success turning an unvented SC into a single or double vented?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Next store, ran into another thrifter on way in. Chatted for a minute, then he made beeline to ties. he zigged, i zagged and went straight to suit rack. It is double sided, so I started on side closest to door. Other thrifter came up about a minute after I started, said ties were same crap that has been there for last 3 weeks. He jumped to other side. So glad he didn't start at other end of my side and work towards me. 3/4 way through rack and I would have sworn I was at Jos. A Bank. Then I hit this pocket. First grab 100% Linen Canali SC, still has tag sewn onto arm but appears to have been worn. Is that a thing? like leaving tags on your BB cap?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then a Canali suit, Blue glen plaid, 48R, single pleat pants

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Dolce & Gabbana 100% Cotton SC with killer lapels, 42

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Corneliani Bluie pinstriped orphan, 40R, easily could be worn as SC. Material is amazing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    PRL Made in Italy superfine wool blazer, awesome buttons. 39R, I am assuming this is a Corn? Material is amazing, wish I wasn't so fat

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Brand new AE Kenwood penny loafers. Some listings claim shell, if so would be my first shells (i think). 12D

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    New Cole Haan's, 9D, don't know what you call this style, slip-on? some wear spots on soles, but appear unworn. I'm thinking maybe display.

    Street style guys... Is this anything? Picked it up to be safe. Looking online but most sites I'm finding this brand/label on are in other languages. Givenchy Paris tag.

    I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum, but do a lot of you guys do it? Seems.... Not right to me, but what do I know.


    Are you asking if Givenchy is a thing or that particular piece? Givenchy is definitely a thing. I know nothing about that specific piece though.

    Also lol at impunutra.
