Are you sure those Alden boots are n/a?
So I let @dhazard have the Alden chukkas but I couldn't let him get away with this one. Especially because I found this. Consider this your friendly reminder to ALWAYS check women's jackets. (This is men's)
Spoiler: Bro Deetz
Spotted it in the F/W 2007 show:
That Dries coat is fantastic. I picked up a shorter peacoat from them a couple years back and really love the cut/fit. Great find!
That coat is so....
I used to read and write fairly well, as well as speak pretty fluently. I attended some of First Grade there. We went to Japan for a month and 1/2 (maybe 2 months) over my Summer Vacation from 1st grade. Well, school still runs in the summer time there, so my mom had the idea to enroll me in school there for a month or so, so I could experience school over there as well as attend the same school she did. I wasn't too fond of the idea then but I made do with it and remember having a lot of fun. Looking back, it was an amazing experience I'll never forget.
Sadly after not keeping up on speaking it or reading/writing it, I've lost about 80% of it. I can still understand most conversations by picking out words here and there and can speak a little bit, but nothing like I used to.
I see you there.
1. I think it's really funny meeting strangers in real life and hearing them say "are you my main man?" I'm not sure if it's ever happened, but I REALLY like the idea of someone going up to someone who has no idea what they're talking about and asking them that.
Some better pics of the reunited thriftening stuff:
Zegna staple navy suit, available. I found the jacket, SWB found the pants, which weren't even tagged, he just grabbed based on style and quality.
Brioni SC with gold Brioni buttons. N/A
Brioni pinstripe N/A Again, I found the jacket, SWB had the pants
Brioni black suit, I had the jacket, SWB had the pants. N/A
And then I had two pairs of pants that he had the jackets for.
Couple other things, never leave a blackwatch behind. Available. 100% lambswool and made in Canada!
Vintage Nike guys!!! I picked these up only because they were the oldest pair I've ever seen. They are not in the best shape, but surprisingly, the soles are damn near perfect. I thought there might be a way to clean them up and maybe a collector would want them. If not, no big loss. Still cool to see a pair made in the USA.
West German Disco Italia from 1983? Lots of synthesizers? Jazz Musik??? Yes please!!!!
Hands down my favorite illustrator. N/A
Lululemon reversible field jacket. N/A
Polo Country hand knit
Shout out to Thrift Vader for an awesome box of Japanese swag. My wife loved the Issey Miyake top. The YYPH boots are sadly a tad small, they measure out to a 9.5-10. I wanted to offer them up here for what I paid plus shipping before I send them off to Grailed/B&S.
Oh yeah! Double shout out to Thrift Vader. CDG jacket fits me like a dream. I put it on when I got home yesterday and my wife told me I looked like a badass. I also used the bottle opener to open my first beer in a long while. I got some wisdom teeth pulled out on Friday, so I had been avoiding any alcohol while riding the vicodin train. Thanks again, dudeman.
@Dhazard whats wrong with canada??
Just happy i can bring something to the Community, and glad you were pleased with the quality of the items. a fair deal is always on the table.
more Epic Swag coming soon!
(by Epic, i mean brain melting)
Two shirts I liked. Not expensive.
Vintage 'special' police / death squad shirt.
Shadowchasers '91(?) Preview(?). Any nerds here? Is this Yugi-oh related? I dunno....
If I made a Knowledge Box, this would be in it. Witness this tradedy, also known as 'fools gold' in the made-up community: From the front, it looks like an amazing Big Dog shirt, but lo -- turn it around, and see what became of the company in the 90's. Losing money and desperate to compete with nastier fare like Naked Co-ed and Big Johnson, Big Dog debased itself with this kind of middling bullshit, a race to the bottom. No grab!
that busted shirt
