Nataku is "The Thriftinator"
Speaking of the Scirocco, I took it out today and swung by the local thrift. On my way out, I had a guy stop and talk to me about it for like 20 minutes. Sure is an attention-getter!
Hmm, considering the similarities I wouldn't entirely write this possibility off.
There is a house around the corner that has a Scirocco and Porsche 928 sitting in the drive. Both are pretty ragged on and I'm not sure I've ever seen them moved in the almost 7 years we've been here.
I'm such an idiot, picked up a flawless BCBG max azria calf skin suede jacket today because i tried it on I'm 6ft1 190.. and it was fitting...Ok, and if anyone know BCBG they only make women stuff lol... so I've got a women's large calf skin suede jacket for $20.. but I think I can flip this based on what ebay's prices. Gotta pay more attention to button stance more... I was going by quality alone on this one lol..
GW put this one in the men section with the men's tag. They have a return policy anyways. What do you guys think should I try and flip or just return it.
btw how should a men's jacket button. One of those push buttons should be top part be on the right hand side or left?
Is the Rocco a 1st or second Generation? First gen. is more angular and has quad round headlights. I know of a pretty trashed red second generation in a neighborhood around Dayton, OH.
Not a thrift find, but it might as well have been - Drakes true ancient madder (gum silk and all) tubular scarf, mint condition, listed completely like shit on eBay allowing me to kop for $16.95 shipped from the UK.
^ Steal of the year!
Had another killer day (consisting of my lunch break of 30 minutes).
First is a sweet Davies and Son bespoke DB Navy SC......my guess would be about a 40R, side vents......this thing is honestly the best fitting SC i have ever tried on (but damn surgeons cuffs are 1" too short for my monkey arms
Next is a Bijan SC/Orphan Suit Jacket - 46R, side vents. Pattern lends me to think its an orphan, but the stripe is actually barely noticeable in person. Anyways, its a Bijan, so I wasn't going to leave it, orphan or not. Anybody know who made for Bijan?
^ Ah that bijan brings back memories of that mega thread a while back
Yes, but this is a Bijan, not a 100% Bijan!
Found a brand new pair of Martin Dingman Croc-Print Loafers for $25. Anyone have a review? They seem pretty comfortable and look nice...retail for $200 plus.
sorry for the bad pic but here is the jacket that I was talking about. Can this be a men's jacket? the yellow tag is on the left arm when worn.
Found a Chester Barrie 100% cashmere SC today, pristine condition, in a dark brown/grey check pattern (don't have any photos). It's a 43R unfortunately too big for me so I didn't buy it. Shoulders and sleeves are perfect for 40R, just too much room in the chest. Anyone interested? I could grab it ($20.00) and you only pay for shipping from Canada.
First I wanna say NIIIIOOOCCCEEE Find! But I dont care if I were rich, theres no "vest" in the world in which I would pay $1695+ for. I just dont get somethings. Maybe I am out of the loop here that seems a little excessive.
