    I am down to swindle any fool out of his money for crisp, hideous Robert Graham shirts in order to throw that money back at stuff that will balance the scales of taste. Don't knock the hustle, eBay for life! If you were some financier with taste, lived in Manhattan and could swing by the rare places that stock Rick Owens and Margiela (hopefully on some sort of sale), well...you probably wouldn't be posting in this thread.

    Also, did you get my PM?

    I got your PM! It looks like an awesome shirt, I'd totally keep it, and you should post that here...

    (Sorry....Mozilla's acting up again. A lot of messages I try to send are just bouncing back at me :embar: )

    Slow thrifting day but did pick up:

    Ralph Lauren Purple Label Made in Italy Cashmere Sweater XL (in a design that grandpapa's would approve of = fugly)
    Barbour Made in Scotland thick chunky ribbed orange wool Sweater XL (amazing piece!)

    The piece of the day is a dress shirt by a completely unknown brand.
    The brand is Soldani Collection, made in Italy, but get this: Mother of Pearl buttons at least as thick as Fray / Borrelli / Finamore shirts, handmade button holes. This has the look and feel of a $350 + MSRP dress shirt, amazing quality. Size 17.5 / 44. I cant find any details of this brand online, so it will remain unknown until someone enlightens me.

    That is what makes thrifting fun, finding things you would never ordinarily look at.

    Found a suspected orphaned Canali suit jacket, most likely a sports coat; didn't really get a good look at it as I was in a hurry and its still in my car :embar:


    Anyone know what the pants labels are on the newer HF for Nordstroms suits? Saw what might be the pants to a jacket I have but there's no HF labels on it, only Nordstroms.

    Usually no labels on the pants, unfortunately. Sometimes the buttons will say Hickey Freeman

    i have a pair of HF orphaned suit pants, the only place you can tell they're HF is on the little metal pants closure. it has the cursive HF logo on it.

    I thought the same thing at first. Unfortunately, that's not a Hickey Freeman logo. It belongs to the pants-fastener-thingie manufacturer.

    +1. I was corrected re: this as well. Look on random pants and you'll notice that many/most brands have fasteners by that same manufacturer with the HF.

    Wow! Everyone seems to be having great thrift days! I wish I could take credit for these finds, but my wife actually picked these up.... Oh! and before I forget to mention... All this talk about "Pick things up for her".... My wife is someone who won't shop in a thrift, lol. Plus she actually buys me more things in a month than she buys for herself. I love this woman.... -Hickey Freeman 100% Camel Hair Sportcoat -Thomas Pink Tie and this Magnificent FIRST EVER Find (This IS Available; It doesn't fit me too well :( )...

    The sewn in tags (and I'm just guessing here) look like sample tags that a sales rep would have when showing new product to buyers. The fact that the letters are the same in the same color family with numbers to ID them makes it look like there are others in the series as well.
