    These surface bites can be made to look a lot better without a reweaving.

    Last year I bought an Oxxford coat with similar damage and fixed it pretty well.

    You take a sewing needle and lightly pull up on the fabric and make some new nap to the right level of the rest of the fabric. Blends in really nice.

    Today was one the most random days of thrifting I've had in quite some time. I always look forward to thrifting at the start of the year since a lot of people seem to clean out their closets over the holidays but today full of odds and ends finds.

    Cool Woolrich weekend canvas jacket for me

    [​IMG]

    Rev It motorcycle jacket (available)

    [​IMG]

    NWT Chelsea jersey (available)

    [​IMG]

    Women's Moschino coat

    [​IMG]

    Spiewak vest (never heard of this brand before but website shows high-end outerwear)

    [​IMG]

    Men's 11M Tretorn Nylites (keeping one, one available)

    [​IMG]

    LL Bean Boots, Men's 12 (available)

    [​IMG]

    Theory Men's size L lined raincoat, still has plastic on the buttons (available)

    [​IMG]

    Rainbow men's flip flops ~ size 13, ladies Raybans, very cool Alain Mikli glasses (crazy expensive retail!)

    [​IMG]

    And finally, the most random find/purchase, men's and women's Asolo cross country ski boots (men's 13, ladies 8 1/2) -- definitely available!

    New member here. I've been on this site and thrifting for a while now, so I decided I would become a member. I'm in Chicago, so I've got access to great thrift and consignment shops, as well as discount retailers. I'll post some of my better finds from the past few months a bit later, but for for now I'll post what I found tonight for personal use. Zegna current label button down from a consignment shop and Magnanni Brogue Captoes from a thrift shop.[​IMG]
