    Today I snagged a Brioni dress shirt, Burberry London plaid check shirt, and Gitman Bros. pastel plaid shirt (very tasteful).

    ^^ Left it at the office unfortunately but I'll get you deets tomorrow. IIRC it was a custom piece so I'll have to measure it. Wasn't unusually large or small so I'd say a 42 wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.

    Hey guys, I have a quick question for thrifting experts: I have a NWT E. Zegna mainline white shirt, but it appears that the shirt was a display sample, thus there are some light yellowing on the neck collar. Do you advice to treat it/clean it with anything before posting it and selling it? It has never been washed/worn outside, just probably tried on multiple times...

    Waiting to see Mainy's stuff before I get shamed from today, plus I'm too lazy to update these pictures, but would anyone mind telling me which YSL label this is? I can't really date it and I lost the post where there were examples of it:

    Vintage, probably 1970's or 80's.

    Modern tag = Yves Saint Laurent, white background, black writing.

    Rive Gauche tag = white background, Yves Saint Laurent written in black with Rive Gauche underneath. Older YSL Rive Gauche pieces either just say: Rive Gauche (no yves saint laurent), or say Yves Saint Laurent with Rive Gauche underneath but will have a red square on the right and vertically will say Paris (or something like that). Older stuff is not so desirable, newer stuff, Slimane - Tom Ford era is very collectable, but you are unlikely to come across this stuff often in thrifts.

    Pour Homme = black background, Yves Saint Laurent in white lettering. Pour Homme sometimes written underneath. Mediocre stuff, maybe you could push a suit in good condition for $100, but more likely $50 odd.

    Oh no, I'd pay better than that. Not looking for thrift cheapy prices. But of course depends what you have. Maybe Spoo would be the best option for you
