    I found a pair of brown, triple-pleated Zanellas yesterday. About size 36, if I had to guess. Is anyone interested?

    I'd be interested in the orange polo. My college colors are orange & black and that would be nice to wear to alumni events.

    if anybody would be interested in this post up and let me know and i will start making a list of items, which will take a while in and of itself.


    Interested fo sho.

    About time I found something worth mentioning! I thought the whole nice-donated-clothes supply dried up here. All about being at the right place at the right time, though. Saw a rack of clothes being rolled out of the back room. As I planned out my course of attack, I saw three others doing the same. I spotted this gorgeous pattern peeking out as well as bellowed pockets, so as soon as the rack stopped, I snagged it right as the three others pounced on the rack. Saw the Barbour tag and had this in my mind :slayer: .

    Stone mint Barbour Tweed Beaufort jacket. My size (M in Barbour). Has the throat latch too. Love it! This store is getting wise, though. Had to cough up $25 for this puppy.

    Daaaaaaaaaamn that's nice. As an outwear enthusiast, I'm kind of disappointed in the lack of awesome coats like that in my thrifting experiences.

    Something of a depressing day, I came across a pair of just barely worn brand new looking Alden tassels loafers – but, in size 15 narrow!

    The other day I find some shirts from Lord's (tailor in Hong Kong) and I've been meaning to post them here for some clarification.

    Can anyone translate this monogram for me?

    [​IMG]

    Assuming there isn't some miracle where these are actually my initials, are there any suggestions as to what I should tell people curious about it's significance?

    In other news:
    - black Thomas Pink shirt with MOP buttons
    - Burgundy Levis Jeans
    - a near new pair of white canvas Sperry Top Sliders for my best friend (which, along with an all leather University of Miami baseball cap [can't believe I haven't posted that here] and Joe Gibbs' autobiography [all thrifted] should make a good Chanukah present)
    - Blackwatch Pendleton shirt jacket
    - the first not ugly Zegna tie I've ever seen in person

    Hey everyone! long time lurker and wanted to join in :D



    Found these Bruno Magli loafers, High Sierra boots, plus a pair of Johnston and Murphy shoes. I cleaned the J&M up with some ivory soap, then polished them twice. Will work on the boots tomorrow.

    Had a busy week or so (IRL, not thrifting), and only managed to go twice in the past 2 weeks - a low for me. Still snagged some pretty decent stuff:


    A pretty mint Armani Collezioni dress shirt
    [​IMG]



    Pristine Zegna with the nice, thick MOP buttons. The Armani fits, but the Zegna is way too big, unfortunately :-/.

    Black (I think so...that, or a REALLY dark navy..it's honestly hard to tell) "3 roll 2" Brooks Brothers gold button blazer (see pics below for the "roll"). The button detail is really cool; it has the Brooks "346" emblem on it.

    Brooks Brothers & Salvatore Ferragamo ties. The Ferragamo looks/feels like it's never been worn

    Unfortunately, everything above doesn't fit in some way. Lol, so much for sticking to thrifting stuff only in my size.

    Matt I really wish that PRL brown herringbone SC was my size!

    You should be able to get some decent money for it though.

    I know, right?! For being in Minnesota, we sure don't find much nice outerwear. Other than this, I've only found a recent Schnider's of Salzburg down jacket w/ read fur hood and another Barbour loden wool jacket that was too big. That's it. All I ever seem to come across is ancient (60's-70's) wool overcoats that fit like a paper bag and smell like moth balls with a few newer cheapies here and there.

    found 3 mint brioni shirts today, 1 needs a monogram removed. Billy Reid thin v neck sweater size L. gorgeous tweed top coat that may end up being a shade too small for me.

    But the best find of today was a Beavis and Butthead tie LMAO,
