    Vintage Omegas are the best. Constellation I have is still my most accurate watch, about five seconds a month if worn in rotation

    I know right. In my opinion FWIW, in their price range you can't beat them. They finally seem to have woken up and taken a page from Rolex's marketing and I'm pretty sure their prices will go even higher in the next year or so. Finding them in good condition at thrift prices puts a huge grin on my face since I rarely let them go.

    While I'm on a watch kick, it's going to be interesting to see what Tissot is going to do as well, considering how prominently they were featured in MI5.

    A few other things from this week.

    Vtg BB. Anyone have a clue on maker. Soles are all rubber, so heels don't help.

    A few things the past couple of days, missing a few things as well

    And lastly......


    [​IMG]

    First thing Ive ever posted on here that is 99% unavailable, fits me like a glove, as if it was tailored for me.
    And also @Nobleprofessor , in case you did not know. You are a similar size to Dr. Phil. How do I know? A buddy of mine in Beverly Hills found some "Phillip Mcgraw" Su Misura Zegna items (solid suit jacket missing its buttons (50L), shirt (monogramed with his initials), trousers (42L)).

    Toronto and Chi-Town are killing it. I know I'm posting in @jdrizzy and @impuntura 's wake, and I may just be thrifting in their wake too, but Toronto seems to have enough to go around.

    This seems okay, kinda cheap maybe.. ... better check the label.

    Shouldn't have picked this up because it has a few irrepairable damages but it was my first wild encounter with this brand so I got it purely for study/sentimentality or "Knowledgebox (TM)"

    [​IMG]
    Polo jacket, nothing special usually wouldn't pick it up but

    Love those dead lines.


    [​IMG]
    T-dot Pr0n. Pre-first game. Copyright is from 1994, first Raptors game ever played was in '95. This thing is dope.



    [​IMG]
    No name but too cool not to buy. Wish it fit. Large.



    [​IMG]
    The lining is trashed, and I'm not sure about authenticity but for $10 I thought it was worth the risk.
    I know many people in the tailoring department at my work who'd put in a new liner.

    Left is very likely fake. Twill runs from 3-9 instead of 11-5. Right is legit. Picked up the left because it was hanging right beside the real deal on the rack and for $2 I could afford to grab it in case it turned out to be special edition, and if fake, good comparison for study or "knowledgebox (TM)"


    [​IMG]
    At first just brown unfinished pants..

    Need authenticity check from the experts.

    Pinstripe suit orphans. Anyone wear pinstripe pants without a jacket, like, ever?

    Need one of the California guys to tell me anything they know about this brand. Looks super quality.

    Keep it up!!

    Long day with some decent finds. Found more shoes and almost had to throw elbows with a thrift mom :) Will try and post more of the stuff later or tomorrow but had a couple of questions before I forget:

    Is this the "good" North Face label?
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And is this Brioni tie legit?
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks

    Yes, that's the good stuff. Brown label. That vest is probably late 70's/early 80's. Good style too, puffers are very desirable.

    Hermes scarf ties dont follow the same twill rules. It has the correct label too.

    Also, does anyone need some nice vintage Burberry buttons?

    [​IMG]

    100% camel hair Burberrys blazer with holes everywhere. But the buttons were all there (3 on each cuff, 1 on each side for pocket closure (total of 8 smaller buttons), and then 2 larger center closure buttons)
