Very underrated IMO. Getting rid of quite a few actually.
Not really the right thread but sue me Could use some quick cash for this :
Boglioli 'Coat' sz. 54
Their knits are awesome.
Yea lands end knits are pretty sweet. Cremieux ties are pretty underrated also
Vineyard vines and ferragamo as I'm slender and anything in a thicker silk or wider than 3.25" looks to bulky. I also prefer whimsical prints for some character.
Ahhh yea the good Borrelli for the price of the garbage single R Borelli, $35 shipped, thanks Linda!
Nice pick up, it's a pretty decent little pocket rocket too.
Last night we had no kids, so I suggested the Casino (its 8 miles outside of town). But, my wife said if we are going to spend money we should at least go to a thrift store! She never wants to go in the evening, so I agreed. Unfortunately, after letting the dog out (not a euphemism, we actually had to let a real dog out to pee), and eating dinner, we only had 30 minutes to get to the thrift store and shop.
So, this was a quick and dirty trip.
I am not sure what to think about this shirt. I wouldn't have bought it except it has a 1978 copyright.
Weird tag, too:
I am excited about this one. Black Heavy Denim Harley Davidson shirt with cool embroidery and sturdy snaps.
At first I thought this was a HUGE pop.
But, it has a 2004 Copyright. So, its not worth much at all, is it?
Another cool Harley T-Shirt
This nest item is a Burberry Suit. I am hesitant to spend much on Burberry suits unless they are pretty special. But, this one is unusual. It is 100% wool. But, I don't know what to call the fabric. It feels heavy like wool flannel. But, its denser than wool flannel. It is almost like wool felt. It is very substantial.
I also liked it because of the flat front pants with side adjusters and no belt loop. It is a very handsome brownish gray. I think with the right shirt and tie, it could look very elegant.
These were from a trip last week.
A very nice pair of Ralph Lauren Polo Braces
VERY nice braided/woven leather
Two Belts, one Lizard, one alligator Both Women's (boo).
I thought this next one was interesting: Wrangler needlepoint size 34
Did you find more, or are these the ones from last year???
Thanks for your input, that's very helpful.
Yeah, I see the black ink fading before the red ink--why is that? I wouldn't know to look for that. The rivets and buttons look right as far as I can tell, but I am no expert.
Unfortunately, they have shrunk quite a bit, so I'm not sure if the actual size is that desirable--the waist measures 33+, but the inseam is just below a 28, so a bit short. The rise is 12 in the front, and 15.5 in the rear.
The indigo is definitely still very dark, there isn't really much of any fading to the jeans at all.
FYI, that's a Belvest tag, based on what I can see (and Prada is known to use Belvest for their suits). Nice job re-uniting the orphan, though.
why is the black ink fugitive? because once you buy the jeans the advertised size doesn't matter! but levi's would always wanna have the branding be as robust as possible as the jeans age... i've got a bunch of 60s jackets and on every one the red ink on the size tag is going strong but the black ink is long gone - you can't even read the model # or size unless you catch the imprint in the right light - but go on ebay and see how many "redline 501s" have faded red ink on a trashed label but the black stamp sizing is quite dark, and then the marked size and actual sizes are the same?... doesn't make sense, doesn't add up, fake.
imo yours look good, but you would also look for things like a legit patina on the copper (i've seen like rust to verdigris to black crud), compare the back rivet to one you know is good, look at the font and language on the paper tag, stuff like that. there are some hilariously artistic fakes around but there are some that are very true, so its worthwhile to be skeptical if you care whether your find is legit or no.
oh and great find btw! i found one in very similar condition last year, marked 38x34 but more like actual 34x31 (!) and i should've held onto em. boo.
Yea, they take incredible photos. I personally have all of my film p&s needs filled by an olympus xa and an olympus stylus epic, so off to the evil land of capitalism for this cam! It had a roll already in it, which I am going to develop out of curiosity...haha
I sure do like finding Stetson Hats. Found a new one that no one wanted at an estate sale. Bought it on the last day for $5 and just sold it for $92.11!
Yeah... It's been brought to my attention, was hoping that faux pas was going to fly under the radar.
I confused the two because I just found those St. Andrews Sulka, and I have never seen newer Belvest in person.
These are from last year but they are my faves.
