    It's not a fake, it's just a fiction.

    Huge shoutouts to @Takai and @Cj52racers racers for the trades over the past week. Takai came through with my biggest grail, a pair of Common Projects.

    Sanyo - normally pass but this one seemed recent. Travel Coat - tons of pockets on the inside.

    Older Pure Cashmere EZ, unvented but the fabric was too nice to leave behind. EU 48

    EZ for Dunhill Suit EU 54, fits more like a 52

    Pop! Rubinacci EU 52, middle button needs to be reattached but it's an easy fix

    This is a crap pic but anyone recognize the maker? It looks like Belvest to me. I'm right in assuming Rubinacci doesn't do their own tailoring right?
    [​IMG]

    Didn't recognize the label but I know the Oxxford tag when I see it. A little research shows this was a Louis Boston line by Oxxford Renaissance (younger man's cut). Murray Pearlstein was the owner of Louis. This has to be one of the nicest SC's I've ever seen. Feels like wearing a extremely cozy sweater. The body is quarter lined with the fabric of the SC, first time I've ever seen that. (Sleeves are lined with satin) So sad it's missing one cuff button. 42 if anyone is interested.

    And lastly, another Yohji Suit for good measure. This one fits me but I'm not sure I can pull off the crazy proportions.

    One stop. All from a store that hasn't produced anything good in over a month. First time finding Kiton tailored pieces. Woo hoo!

    Pics.

    First thing I found was this. Been after one for years. At 50% off $24.99, sure - why not?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Then found this for the Mrs (she almost bought this same cap off their website but I told her I could probably thrift one. It only took 2 years....)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Fanciest Polaroid I've seen yet. Still has film in it.

    Waited around for about 4 more hours. After the first hour I found this on a "new" rack.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    6 more racks of pure crap later, I decide to throw in the towel. Had a good run! There may be more. Hopefully Schmidt, MyMainMan or ilikethelights will find the rest if they surface and hopefully this is the tip of the iceberg for the Thriftening in Minnesota.

    Stopped for gas on the way home and saw these. Had to grab a couple. My wife, being in the dental field, cringed when she saw me walk in the door with them. :laugh:
