    Not a thrift store but an estate sale. Found this in a box with 4 other working walmart watches. Thought the box would be worth at least $8 as marked. is it real and if so what would it be worth ballpark?

    First find in a while. BB appear to be new and unworn and skinny, Ferragamo still has the tag on it. All are available for trade or offers since I need X-Long.
    I also found some black selvege unbranded brand sz 32. I didn't kop because I didnt know if they are worth flipping. If someone is interested let me know.

    I found a couple of things today that never seem to show up on this site, but they're actually pretty decent pieces. A pair of single-pleated Cacharel tweed pants with horn buttons. They're probably 30 years old, but in great shape. A pair of older Keithmoor (Coppley) pants with MOP buttons. I'd put both easily above my Brooks Brothers and Zanella slacks in terms of quality. I guess they were both made and sold in Canada at a time when there wasn't much brand penetration from the States.

    Also, for novelty's sake, I picked up a Robert Hall (Hall American) flecked-wool coat or ski jacket that's probably circa 1949/1950. I'd always wanted a flecked-wool coat. I tried it on when I got home, and I'm not cool enough to pull it off.

    Its fake. You can tell right away because the magnification isnt strong enough. Real Rolex watches use a 2.5x magnification and the fake ones are usually around 1.5x. Also it looks like the cheap gold plating is coming off in a bunch of places. You can probably get $40 at a pawn shop for it though.

    I saw a fake Omega at the thrift yesterday. It wasn't obviously fake just from looking at it, but as soon as I picked it up, I could tell. And they were asking $99 for it. :uhoh:

    Not epic, but found a nifty heavy Harris Tweed overcoat and a pretty sweet made-in-Austria 100% cashmere overcoat today. Both in great shape. Better than loads of nothing.

    BTW, around here we don't even see FAKE rolexes. There's an awful punchline in there somewhere... ;) In all honesty, the number of automatics of any brand at any price I've seen can certainly be counted on one hand.

    I'd like to see a photo of the Cacharel trousers, maybe a few close shots of the stitching and details. Always interesting on older pieces.

    I thought it might, but I wasn't about to risk $80 on something when I had no idea what it was going for. I don't have mobile internet so I have to rely on my memory, and I still don't know that much.

    Found a beautiful Irish tweed jacket. From Burberry and my size for only $10. I suppose you can't wear PC when there's a flap on the chest pocket.
