    Wow, some of the finds on here... but alas, I must admit that I actually found a "dior" jacket... and left it. Haven't seen it again... don't hate! As for my finds over the last few days...

    -Samuelsohn flannel pants. My size that I'm keeping! :slayer:
    -BB Corduroy jacket. Loro Piana "Sport Fabrics" 100% Cotton. Size 48 L. Available
    -Coppely jacket. Wool/Silk/Linen. Sz 44 L. Available. Great Spring Colors!
    -Stupid Ugly Robert Graham Shirt. Sz Small. Available

    Maybe not brag worthy but oh well. If you want pictures, I'd be happy to put them up.

    Wow - Brioni and Fray shirts one day and NWT Finamore and Cucinelli the next?! Where are you from? Sartorial Thrifting Wonder Land? :slayer:


    I love plaids/checks and am a size 17! I'll take any of the plaids/checks if for some insane reason you haven't moved them yet!



    :bigstar:

    Eh, you didn't miss much. Didn't see anything worth grabbing.

    I scored a beautiful D/B Polo RL by Corneliani navy blazer in my size at a different store, though. Tagged a 46 but fits like a 42/44. Crazy peak lapels, loads of pick stitching and a ticket pocket. Side vented too. Kinda on the fence about keeping it. Not sure if I'd ever wear it..

    That is it, I time out this thread now! Why did you have to post that beauty right in front me, in my size?
    Please keep it Nataku, wear it, stick it in the wardrobe, do whatever, thataway if I get a trade in your 42/44 size, we can front it up rightaway.

    looks like PRL, aka Polo Ralph Lauren, aka Blue Label. if it were black label, it wouldn't say Polo, it would just say YOU CAN'T AFFORD ME OR FIND ME IN THRIFT STORES, MEXICUTIONER on the label.

    I find these RLBL chambray shirts frequently but the feel crappy and are always Made in China [​IMG] Why can't people just all donate quality items to thrift stores, it would make our lives easier yet maybe not as fun...[​IMG]

    I have been very busy, I haven't check SF for almost a month and finding myself close to 3000 post behind, dang! Anyways is the T.J Maxx/Marshalls hype over? I had an ok day today, I seems to misplaced my camera, I will post pics and details tomorrow.

    But quick question, I decided to pass by an outlet mall about 50 minutes from my house, long behold there is a Marshalls in there. I found myself facing a Brioni Tuxedo (50L) for Wilkes Basbford with the $6195 tags still in there, but marked down to $600. Not my size, but i wanna buy it to flip it ( no less than $1500). The draw back is it's ventless, that puzzled me a little to see a new recent Brioni with no vent. would this be a good buy or not considering that it has no vent? But i did get me a $2195 Zegna cashmere/silk sport coat for $149 :)

    Where the eff are these places that mark down so dramatically, and why the eff are none of them near me, apparently?

    Unvented is standard for tuxedo jackets.

    WTF someone makes that nice an offer and people are going to flip them [​IMG]

    Damit. I keep passing up the Kiton Tux's b/c they are all unvented. [​IMG]


    1st day thrifting in a week and all I end up with is a Gitman shirt and these (that's all you get till I get them home and cleaned up next week). Oh yea, they were running a $2 shoe sale for everything that wasnt in the "high end" area.

    Strange. I've been watching the same tux at a different location in Florida. Last time I checked it was at $1100, but that was a few weeks ago.
