Burberry dark blue windowpane 52% silk 2-button jacket. I looked, but the pants weren't there.
Did you coped some?
Hermes definitely. It has all the right hallmarks: the horse-and-carriage keeper, the style number square printed right into the fabric, the 2-letters-followed-by-numbers style identifier, and shape (narrow).
I have found the zing has gone out of the pre-owned Hermes tie market - that is, I'm happy if I get $25-30 for one. I suspect this is partly because they are smaller than average - about 56", and narrow, about 3.25", and that doesn't suit a lot of larger, taller American men. Of course, if you paid $2.50, that's still a respectable ROI.
Picked up a cool Brioni jacket
Fortunately for us smaller, narrower american men, they proportion perfectly
Fuck all you vicuña and Cartier guys.
Pretty weak day anyway, but damn fellas.
Also, big shout out to @noob in 89 for a great trade!
Here's the small bit of interesting things
New England Shirt... Italy? Never seen that. Da fuq is this?
Wallace and Barnes Indigo dye is actually pretty sweet.
Gres vintage perfume sealed. Glasses. Valentino and nice seemingly little worn Armani Ex.
...moreso, the tag being right, the twill in the silk running the right direction, and the clean print...that's what I check, over and above the code and shape. Check the code 2nd, natch.
Resale depends a lot on design and how current - the Faconee H and recent whimsicals still go for 100+ in great shape, frequently more. The older equestrian styles are classic but yeah - can go $25 to $50 unless it's a scarf tie. YMMV.
First post on here. I'm going to be visiting the US from Australia in December and I plan to do some serious thrifting while there. I'll be spending time in L.A.,, SF, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, NYC, and possibly Denver, Philly, and Salt Lake City. Any suggestions for stores/neighbourhoods I should be aware of?
You should spend most of your time in Detroit. Lots of goodies and good folks too
I hear you. I have three brothers, none taller than 5'6". I am 4'10". I'm sure when (or if) they wear a tie, they are happy to find ones proportioned to them. My middle brother in fact has a Hermes, gifted to him by my parents but sourced by me.
Yeah, Chicago too. lol
Haha. I've been to both before.
