Hello everyone! As you can see my post counter indicates I'm pretty new, it's my first post on this forum! Well I've been lurking quite a bit this thread (almost done reading all the pages of this thread ^^). it's been very enjoyable to see so many finds, pops, stories, pieces of advice. In the meantime I have been going to a couple of thrift stores in my area and tried to identify what's good to grab. At first for my personnal use (so I was looking mainly at fit + decent brand/quality), but I'm now more and more incline to try picking up good deals and try to resell to a profit on Ebay. Among other thing, I almost pulled the trigger on 1 Brooks Brothers 1818 pinstripe suit in good condition (and not an orphan. i've picked that up here ) + 1 Borrelli "for a Department store" navy 3button sportcoat. Also Hesitated on a solid bright red double breasted Brooks Brothers sport coat... no idea if that can be flipped. it's pretty original... Anyway, they were not my style and I did not have time to check exentively Ebay... I went back today and they were all gone ^ ^. I'd like to share what I've picked up so far (3/4 thrift sessions in 2/3 GW mainly. MA and NH), and to avoid spamming pictures I'll put spoiler on most of it. I'm taking any comment/feedback/advice you may have on my haul. Thanks! Spoiler: the not so good... Ok I'll start with the ulgy... Or at least what i realize now is not a good pick: Navy Blazer "Savile Row" 2 buttons, golden buttons, made in Poland, 42S, single vent, patch pockets Now I know it's easy to say after the fact but really I realized when buying this blazer that it was not a real "Savile Row tailor". The Made in Poland label was pretty clear about that. No this was just the first navy blazer with golden buttons, patch pockets, in good condition that fitted me, that I was stumbling on. In retrospect I think it's an OK mistake for 5$. The only thing that I regret is that it's a 42S while I'm more a 42R. Shoulders and waist fit good, the jacket is a bit short so it's a bit more "sporty", but the sleeve are too short. And I am not sure whether it's worth taking it to a tailor. The brand seems to be off Macy's. Seems some people manage to sell a few on Ebay... http://goo.gl/y16JwQ Another Navy Blazer, same style but this time no patch pockets, the fit is good and it's made in the USA. Problem: I don't know the brand. I can only assume it's not very fancy but eh. it'll do until I find better ^^ Another 8$ mistake. Not very interesting for the thread. 4 Ties. 1 I think is worth looking at. Spoiler: Ties Brooks Brothers*3, 2 don't have the label. For my use I think as I don't have an extensive necktie collection. That'll extend my range of options. Now I've lurked almost all the thread since I found this Zilli tie and the brand is rarely found I feel. Is this a "pop"? The tie feels nice and is good quality. The only problem is: it's HUGE. Like really Wide and Long. I had never heard of Rag & Bone before, but the fabric itself was standing out in the rack compared to other shirts. left a few Faconnable shirts on the racks. Is it always worth to pick them up if they are not too worn? Spoiler: Rag&Bone Shirt It fits pretty well on me so I'll keep it! There is one light (but visible) stain next to the buttons. I'll have to try to remove it soon. Spoiler: NWOT Italian wool pants? Vitale Barberis Canonico Pciked this up today. It looks and feel good, what surprised me if that it does look unworn. They are not even hemmed I think. Pants are just slighly too tight for me. I'm not sure if I should bank on loosing weight ^^ Spoiler: PRL Hoodie w/ Logo Def not my size. It's in good condition though. Is it something that I can sell on Ebay? Spoiler: Sport Coats: 3BB & 1 Canali Let's finish with some of the better thing I've picked up ^^ Brooks Brothers 1818 Fitzggerald half-lined navy Blazer. Made in USA. 41L This one fits good but the sleeves are slightly too long. I think it's worth going to the tailor for this one. I like the buttons and I'd like some more info on them as I cannot find them anywhere else on the interwebs. They look grey/silvery instead of golden. They are also quite heavy. Brooks Brothers grey houndstooth with blue & brown lines. Made in Italy. This ones fits perfectly (40R). This one is really nice and I definitely am keeping it Any info on the maker? Brooks Brothers brown houndstooth. Fits good but a bit long in the sleeves (why is most of what i find in S or L not in R!). It feels older than the previous one and a bit more worn. Canali for Bloomindales 3 buttons windowpane with blue lines. This one feels different and I like it. Fits me well as well so I think I'll keep it. Well that's it. Thanks for bearing with my long post. Not sure if it's a bit too much.I'm taking any feedback on what I've posted .
