    No dice on the kiton's, sorry guys...His brother got first dibs[​IMG] He had a canali suit with some holes in one of the shoulders, looks like it may have gotten snagged on something, not a moth hole.
    I ended up leaving that. I did get a buttload of other stuff (nothing brag worthy) including a TON of brooks brothers ties. I'll post them up later after I get through everything else.

    I guess the kiton score was too good to be true, but a guy can dream....

    Sigh. I figured it was too good to be true. On a related note, not a thrift find, but dear god this is pure sex. Thank god the shoulders are too narrow otherwise I would be eating exclusively mac 'n cheese for the next 2 months:

    Only got out for a bit yesterday afternoon. Found a couple cool vintage items:

    Old school BR photographer's vest. Pockets galore. This thing aged beautifully.

    Walked in Marshalls today and saw a Gitman Bros 16/35 non-iron pink OCBD and an awesome teal 70% Wool, 30% Cashmere Via Ardigo (apparently a trendier line from Corneliani) SC in 40R.

    Unfortunately, they're not my size. Are they flippable?

    I have never thrifted an item that doesn't fit me before, but today some larger benefactor decided to drop off the motherlode of basic shirts in ~17/43. I grabbed these since I know there are some people on here that can fit these and I would rather a catch like this stays in the thread than gets split up.

    More details to come, but here's a quick teaser:

    Moreno Martini de Firenze x2, Dolce and Gabbana Made in Italy, Zegna, linen Zegna, Zegna, Zegna, XII Threads (cutaway collar shirt from a brand I do not recognize, but this guy had good taste), Ted Baker, linen Ralph Lauren Purple Label.

    I'm just here to pass this haul along, I'd really not rather deal with dicking about on fleabay or the likes. All of these are clean, well maintained, and undamaged, so I'd like to get these to a good home. I'll have more detailed photos up tonight or tomorrow... I have a lot of drinking to do, but shoot me a PM if you want any more details or to call dibs on any of these bad boys.

    I think I could eat Mac 'n cheese regularly. Very delicious, the secret to its tastiness is not using Velveeta or any mild processed cheese, but a real sharp cheddar (I use English Farmhouse, Canadian, Wisconsin or Vermont Cheddar). Makes Mac 'n cheese higher end, but fucking yummy. Before the oven, chop up a bunch of tomato slices, use a little French/English mustard, and add, I could eat 2LB's of that stuff. Serve with salty fries and that some great cuisine there :)

    As for Hermes Sport Coat, looks nice but too vintage and price is too high for its vintage. I have a thrifted Hermes similar to that, if that sells decently, I sell mine. I have never worn it and dont think I ever will, so perhaps there could be some $$$$ there for me. I will wait and see.

    Picked up my 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th seven fold ties this weekend....but unfortunately they are Paul Fredrick Sartoriale 7-folds. Anyone have experience with these? Seem nice and thick, self tipped, but Paul Fredrick....[​IMG]

    Also picked up a fully lined Harris Tweed and Jack Victor suit.

    Answering my own questions. Not Tony Lama. Website called tonyboot.com. Sent them an email and got this reply.

    Quote:

    they are made from monitor lizard

    our price for custommade included shipping usd300.-

    thank you
    tony


    Not bad for $2.50. I didn't even know they made shoes out of lizard skin... I have absolutely no idea how to wear them though. Might put them up in B&S. Here are a few more pictures just because.

    I'm not saying I wouldn't pick one up. To each their own, especially for that kind of markup, haha.

    Found a suspected orphaned Canali suit jacket, /quote]

    It wouldn't happen to be a charcoal jacket and you wouldn't happen to be in NoVa, right? I found orphaned Canali pants today. Complete bummer, b/c it was my size, and I could use a charcoal suit. First time that that has happened to me - pants, no jacket.

    We did a thrifting segment for Put This On in New York.

    Bought myself a nice Brooks cardigan.

    [​IMG]

    Grabbed a pair of these Filson flat-front chinos (NWT!) in a 34.

    Also a beautiful Turnbull & Asser shirt in 15.5. Sleeves measure a little longer than 35" with double cuffs, gorgeous condition.

    [​IMG]

    Neither of those fit me, so if anyone wants to trade something or buy them, drop me a line.
