    PPLICATION ACCEPTED! I now officially have my first office/work studio for Twenty/Ten Clothing, the business I started roughly a year ago. I want to thank all you on this thread that have played such a huge whole in my life and my business. I couldn't have gotten to where I'm at right now without the insight and ideas shared on this forum. This place is truly a goldmine of knowledge, populated by people I truly respect and admire. So thanks all, and the beginning of the next chapter begins.

    Whats up Thrift Thread! Had a long ass break from the thread, and now its time to get back in!
    I don't get to thrift as much these days, but still get out to scratch that itch!

    A few items in backlog I've recently gotten around to posting

    Lastly, my favorite find in a very long time. As most of you know, I love tweed, and this is what excites me the most about thrifting.
    Gems like these that I get to save and redistribute!

    No I didn't go I wasn't feeling well plus I haven't been finding as much stuff as I'd like and got disheartened. You hop on the thread and see Kiton, Zilli, Brioni.... and when you go out all you find is some Jeans. I am really spoiled now, did you get those Dunhill shoes?

    I thrifted those same exact Strongholds raw....got to a thrift on the day their showroom donated the previous seasons jeans, walked out with 8 pairs, from wabash to hickorey striped to those, to black gray and blue raws.

    Dude....that's gotta be a resale shop c'mon, you can't be telling us that just because you're in Japan that the racks are flooded with items like that. That would be like walking into a thrift store here and the racks flooded in countless Oxxford suits, the jean aisle flooded with Tellason, Raleigh, Stronghold or LVC and the rest chalk full of Band of Outsiders, Gitman Vintage, Freemans Sporting Club, Filson, or Engineered garments, the outerwear full of Schott leather, ties flooded with Alexander Olch.... That stuff cannot just be that accessible in any given thrift there, that would be insane...and I know Robert Geller manufacturers there, but Geller is rare goods, not highly circulated, so same accessibility for all, not bound to any international contracts of distribution rights the other brands are... that place looks exactly like a resale shop by me.

    That's a great color & pattern. I expected that to be some old baller no-name tweed.

    If you want a tie, I would be the first person you would want to see. If you need a Drakes private label, a Ben Silver, some Charles Hill or any English regimental, authentic macclesfield, or any tie made in England sure, I got about 150, need Marinelli 7 folds, neat Cappellis, Brionis, Riccis, Hober grenadines, Vanda 7 fold, Chanels, YSL Rive Gauche's etc...? I am your man. Seriously.... And they are all stored flawlessly. I'm serious, it's an addiction, I love the silk.

    And I didn't take measurements of the scarf I just guessed and what is this signature within the scarf your referring to? Do you think you can detail that for me slightly so I know what to inspect for? Or do you just mean another Ferragamo branding somewhere else within the ties print? Because if that's the case I think I should be good, that practice isn't adhered to strictly.

    EDIT: It's authentic for sure, just vintage.
