  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Posted recently about the bs record pricing at the Goodwill nearest to my house. But I will pay up when this is the quality you get -- $42ish after taxes even with two throwaways that made their way into the pile.

Nice watch lot. The bracelet on that Longines almost looks like a 1970's Seiko H-link bracelet that were used for Pogues. That and the Tissot look around that age to me - 70s or early 80s. Wonder what they date to.
Yeah I had several seikos with that bracelet,I thought itvwas a Seiko at first as well.

@impuntura: crazy how you keep finding decent watches. Good for you. Things like that very rarely reach the thrift stores around here. All I see are $2 China watches in pink plastic and other useless timekeepers. In 7-8 years of pro thrifting I have found only two watches that were worth flipping for $50-100.

Those are fake, easiest sign is the relatively flat toe on the fakes, with the real ones having a more obvious protrusion at the top of the toe. Other signs are stitching and interior finish, and the placement of the eyelet, it should be closer to the toecap.

You can get your own pair for about $60 :)
