my cheapness and pragmatism striked again today.

hit the bins. total shit show, but found an old churchill hat buried beneath a mountain of crap. super soft. didn't look too closely at labels and whatnot... BUT it looked like it's been the site of multiple moth feasts. funny thing is not super obvious, but once you see the nibbles, you can't unsee them. i left it because i'm conscious of not buying a bunch of stuff. we do live in an apartment after all.

anyway, the point of this rambling is when i got home... i started wondering if it was one of their Vicuna felt ones. i was going to go back and just buy it for the $1 it probably was... but my wife was like "i don't care if it's made from the pubic hair of virgin unicorns, you are not wearing a moth ridden hat!". she's wrong though, unicorns don't have pubes. LOL!

oddly enough, i don't think they're worth a whole hell of a lot? especially with nibbles?

Couple more autographed books. The first one is be a politician, but probably less controversial. The second book... Well let’s just say I already have a signed copy, and picked this one up hoping for a reading copy. I see Scott around town occasionally...

One stop.

I don't buy RG anymore unless it's super crazy and cheap (limited edition, etc), but this was cheap, NWT, XL and had a huge embroidery on the back. It definitely made the cut.

No label on this guy, but based on the fabric label (Made in England) and the overall cut, I'm thinking it's Eskandar.

A few highlights from STP in FoCo (you might be from Colorado if you understood that).

Duckworth Woolcloud Vest. I’ve been wanting to check out this Montana company... I also picked up a women’s one, which is destined for the bay.

Pantherella: yellow, blue and purple are cash blend; wine are cotton blend.

@Nataku
Those brunello look questionable. The stamping on the tags doesn't look right as it's not the right font. Could be the picture. That and I noticed the lion of saint mark back leg.

From the bins a MIUSA Peacoat. The missing buttons are in the pocket.

Picked this up some time ago but just got around to cleaning it up. My Uncle found this at an estate sale and hit me up. Fortunately I was only about 10 minutes away. Lakland 55-02R in beautiful shape. They had it priced at $700 firm but it was the last few hours of the last day of the sale and the owner suddenly became motivated. I got it for $325 when all was said and done. Not true thrift but close enough for me.

And just grabbed this heavily modded Fender Lead II and and an OLP MM1 for $280 from a pawn. The bridge PU is an original Lawrence L500 and the neck is a Duncan dated 1985 which I am guessing is an ssl-1. My first "real" guitar when I was 15 was a Fender Lead III so I was really exciited to find this. I will probably sell the OLP and part out the bridge and pups on the Fender which should put me back even plus a little. I am going to rebuild it to somewhat original specs with a couple of humbuckers. Sort of a poor mans PRS.

I have no idea what any of this means... 🤓

Essentially it means the parts are worth more than the whole. Or something close to it. I am not a member on any guitar forums so I figured I would throw them up here for the hell of it. Forgot I was on a clothing forum for a moment.

Recent finds...

Nothing available at the moment.

Still can't pass on clearanced shearling. Suede number next to it was nice.

Grey overcoat is handmade but completely anonymous.

These pants are actually pretty cool in a military-inspired early aughts way. I secretly hoped they'd fit, but they don't. It's probably better that they don't, it may have been one of these situations...

How I think I'll look:

One of my favorite finds this week. Coated cotton blackwatch coat with nice details. Seems to be a Spanish company I don't know.

These wouldn't be expensive to buy, but were less than a Nespresso capsule:

@California Dreamer or anyone else in the know: Is this Shalimar real? Not very valuable, I know, but just curious because the bottle shape is a bit different.

^ @HansderHund I continue to be simply amazed by the volume and variety of quality merchandise you find with great frequency on your thrift outings. Absolutely extraordinary. Are you in a very exclusive demographic like the Austrian equivalent of Long Island (edit: Oyster Bay, LOL, thanks everyone) or San Fran? Your careful curation for photography is also exemplary. I have enough trouble finding the time to just sling my hauls on a white table!! So thanks. Always eye candy.

Meanwhile, out in Sun City West, and from an estate sale listing:

"Wheel chairs. Scooter. Walker. Shower chairs. Blood pressure machine. Oxygen tubing. So so much. Something for everyone." Wheeeeee . . .
