blazer fits awesome
I can teach folks about vintage hat's too.
FENDI pillow and Card holder.
1930's wool bathing suit by spalding.
Baygrove yachtclub flag, very old.
Enamel pins. The san diego yacht club one is very good.
I like these coolers.
for a swell trade, got an indescribably legit vintage shetland BB shawl cardigan. the tits (am i using that right?): don't call it a sweater, it's a pub creeper!
(i forgot about the time difference but he answered my texts anyhow and) helped me date a pair of 60s wrangler 13mwz denimz. now i got to find some vintage lee!
two of the best! thanks again amigos!
Wanted to get in the tie collection discussion too before that was over. Sorry about the lowlite shots.
I just realized I have one of these exact same jackets. Always thought it was just some random "Authentic Imports" jacket... As that's the only tag that's on mine. But yeah I couldn't ignore the quality of it... Navy melton wool on 1 side, Tan cotton twill on the other. Pretty nice construction. Does yours have a hood? Mine has a removable hood attatched.
I'm interested to learn more about this "I Magnin" though.

Looks great, dude! Glad to be of service!
I pretty much don't pass on any RRL. Yesterday was my second time finding it actually. Mine was non selvedge as well. It was actually suede. It wasn't even jeans. It was a bomber jacket. It's pretty neat.
Does anybody have a good way of getting duck canvas clean? I picked up a sweet firemans jacket that needs a good cleaning, but I dont want to toss it in the wash and chance having it develope weird wash marks all over it. I suppose I could have it dry cleaned, but I figured I'd ask here first in case anybody has some suggestions.
Guys, I would really appreciate a little coaching since I'm still a noob. Couple things I passed on recently. It would be super helpful if you more experienced thrifters could weigh in on whether you would have kopped:
Loro Piana black cotton jean-cut (5 pocket) chinos sz 50 EU $10
recent Paul Stuart navy pinstripe suit sz 40ish with water stains/damage visible on lining, not on outside $35
recent Paul Stuart tux sz 40ish $35
Charvet tie $7 (yes, I realized my mistake here -- went back the next AM & it was gone)
ugly Fendi tie $7
armfuls of ugly Armadillo Zelda ties about $7 apiece -- there seems to be a never-ending supply but I've never bought
worn & soiled beige and white striped Kiton French cuff shirt $7 (wondering if OxiClean would've addressed the gray stains on cuffs)
pitted-out Theory button up dress shirt $4ish (again, might OxiClean have removed yellow pit stains?)
couple casual thick Orvis button ups sz L $7-10ish
edit: also, Etro ties $7
Also, where store employees have stapled tags through the backs of collars or the bodies of shirts (e.g., the Kiton mentioned above), is it best to stay away or are these holes addressed during the first wash?
Loro Piana yes, Paul Stuart tux yes, pinstripe suit, maybe would need a visual. charvet, yes. "zelda" ties that are ugly, probably not but i do grab these for $2 or less. stained kiton, probably not would depend on visual inspection. rest no.
Awesome. Thank you!
Thanks! That helps to have this.
