They're the black zips. Pretty sweet shoes actually.
Another dump a few might be repost. I'm in the process of buying a new car and so unfortunately I can't cut any major discounts, all avail.
I've been striking out with shoes lately, so seeing this pair Iron Rangers perched lonely on a top shelf at the last store of a my latest run was especially satisfying. I knew what they were right off the bat, but I was prepared for disappointment right up to the moment I read Red Wing (pop!) on the tongue. Some scuffs but virtually no wear; the laces were tied together when I found them so they may have been a donated display model. My size, NA. Still can't quite believe it.
Amicale green cashmoney, super nice Coach cashmere, made in Scotland.
e-thrifted 2 pairs of black leather gloves, made in the UK (dents, maybe?) for Barneys. Cape leather, rabbit lined. Size 8, one for me, one available.
2 x NWT brooks bros ties (one for the audubon society, bob talbott limited edition 7 fold
a swathe of ben silver repp ties, one NWT (I suspect the rest are nwot)
And an eastpak backpack, nice looking but unshowy, made in the USA
Lillly pulitzer orange gingham
Ralph Lauren denim "big shirt" oxford, NA
Recent PRL black chambray (?), spread collar, NA
Commes des garcons shirt cotton/linen shirt, made in france, NA
Sweaters - love me that vintage scottish knitwear, and the autumn sweater rollout has brought that in spades.
Gorgeous cashmere polo sweater, made by Hawick for the andover shop, XL
Pringle sports forest green cashmere vee, 46
Pringle cream lambswool cableknit, XL
And a cool sweatshirt find: converse all star/chuck tailor, made in the states. NA for now, not sure what to do with it.
NWOT Bonobos limited edition jacket, wool with a pretty wild silk lining. Picked up one in blue and one in black, both 42.
Been had vintage tweed db. Beautiful fabric and details on this one, made in the states size 43
I'm pretty sure this Brioni is an orphan, but I think the pattern is prominent enough that I'll be able to wear it as a separate, NA.
Peter Millar staple gray wool suit, made in Canada, 40R
Been loving the rejuvenated outerwear sections that come with the fall.
LL Bean reversible puffer vest, a largish medium
Red nylon hooded ferrari jacket, XXL
Marmot insulated mixed media jacket, XL, NA going to a friend
Women's brown moncler puffer (pop!), size 3
Armani Collezioni wool topcoat, 46
Been had suede flannel-lined bomber. Pretty amped on this one. Fits well and is basically my ideal fall jacket, NA.
And finally, this monster. Courtesy of the womens coat section:
Double breasted, great pocket flap detail.
Plush as hell. The maker?
Abercrombie and Fitch, from way back when they did not fuck around.
Half-belted back, with a small tear that shouldnt be too tough to repair. Even when the thrift gods are kind they can be cruel: the damn thing fits me really well. NA for the time being.
Good luck out there guys, happy fall!
Holy moly to all of that ^^^. Even though I already own that exact pair of Iron Rangers, I still have visions of pulling them from a thrift (got a proxy to the RW tent sale from Reddit for mine).
Zegna Soft 46 Avail
This Gant (L) is just cool. Not sure its top notch outerwear but has a sweet aura. Has the inner shell too, just couldn't pass it. Avail.
I'm curious about that Polo black chambray. I passed up something with that identical tag recently because it didn't look authentic to me. I'm open to learning: is this some new tag that's just starting to show up in the thrifts, or...?
My shoe haul. MMM x H&M are sz 43 and Peal & Co. are sz. 10 D. Both in very good used condition, both available, both my size if nobody jumps... I can't decide if that's a good thing.
Haven't cleaned them up yet or taken decent photos, but here are quick & dirty shots.
Yes, that's the new tag.
Cool find of the day:
I need smaller feet.
Finds today (but all women's, since I didn't pick up the new-tag Polo shirt):
Vintage 80s Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique silk dress
Sierra Designs 600 powerfill down puffer
Icelandic Design boiled wool cardigan with embroidered collar
Apparently men in this area don't wear any of the really amazing brands you guys score in Chicago and elsewhere. It's all REI, Lands End, and a lot of Kirkland (Costco).
Haha. Peals seem to run a bit big. Probably good for a 10.5, if that helps
Nothing wrong with REI. I'm more than happy finding Smartwool, Ibex, Arcteryx, Patagonia, etc.
Agreed... and I might be shunned for saying it, but IMO, Lands End Hyde Park OCBDs are about the best for the money, especially when they go on sale. Collar could have a better roll, and it'd be nice not to have the cuffs and collar lined, but whatever they need to do to get them to me for $35ish...
I wish I did find more Arcteryx (for reselling). Mostly I'm waiting for the season to really shift, so I can start listing the sweaters, coats, and blankets I have piled up since springtime.
I do see Patagonia sometimes. If it's special (dual layers, doubleknit, clearly vintage, etc) I'll pick it up to flip. Sometimes (oh god, be still my heart) Filson comes my way here. I am ALL OVER Filson when I find a piece...and I can't even wear the stuff. I'm 4'10". I'm like swimming in the average Filson anything. But I love the hand of the fabrics, the sheer quality and attention to detail. Very few women's clothes come in those fabrics or with the purpose of lasting the rest of your life.
'Bout time Brioni added a fight strap.
