    330CK: I thought opera pumps were all cemented, which would mean no nails … ? In any event, I'm well impressed.

    PNutPug: That hat looks brand new (read: minimal stranger's-head grossness). That's just the sort of hat I'd do a touchdown dance if I found at Goodwill, especially if it fit. Well done.

    Thanks.

    An eBay and LV website check reveals that LV ties are, apparently, worth a fair amount. But not to me. Looking for swaps before cash. Thx.

    That makes sense.

    Oh, and thanks to The WGP for the Park Aves — I just got 'em, polished 'em, and am very pleased with 'em. Perfect for my best friend's wedding this fall, I expect.

    I have a pair of Vibrams oled AE bluchers.. They are my 'go-to' shoe when I know I'm going to be on my feet on a hard surface all day. Good find. I like that. I'll be looking into it. Thanks for the heads up!
    I'm jelly! Looks to be my size, as well.

    Had to pass some orphans today, painful. Canali navy with surgeon's cuffs, Stuart Samuelsson gray windowpane, Zegna couture birdseye. 54-56

    That could feasibly pass off as a sportcoat, get it. At very least, worth $100+ on the Bay. Zegna Mainline I would leave it, but Couture, no siree, that is worth taking. Also 56 is my size ;)

    Found a RLPL polo in my size at a TJ Maxx in Daytona of all places last week. It was marked the same $35 as every regular PRL polo shirt.

    Non thrift store find today. I know there's a lot of cyclists on here, so I figured I'd pass on a good deal. A recent Giro bike helmet w/ visor. These are $80+ with prices well into the hundreds. I'd be happy to pass it on at cost + shipping to someone who could use it.

    Details:

    Model: Encinal
    Date: Nov. 2002
    Size: 54-61 cm

    Hello, I've been reading the forums and this thread for a while and thought I would join in, although some of the items posted here so far make me think I should just give up and go back to buying stuff at the mall. I've been thrifting for a couple of months, and to paraphrase what many here have said, goddamn it's a fun addiction.

    So far stuff I've found for myself includes:

    Corneliani single-breasted dark grey suit with peak lapels.

    Gieves and Hawkes navy chalk-stripe suit for a local bespoke/MTM shop. Discovered a small rip in the pants after purchasing, so I've taken them to a re-weaver and, well, fingers crossed.

    Armani Collezioni greenish grey wool pants.


    And some stuff that I liked but I know little or nothing about:

    Fred Perry / Comme des garçons shirt, my size. Poor ironing and lint on the collar my bad.

    [​IMG]

    Eros shirt, my size. I saw this brand in a local menswear shop but haven't found anything online. Are any of the experts here familiar with it? Did I just Christian Dior Monsiour myself?

    [​IMG]

    Valentino jacket (not yet dry-cleaned), tagged EU 56 but probably EU56L, judging by the length. It's available, although Valentino doesn't seem to be particularly desired around here. Possibly an orphan, although if it is, I'm just as happy I couldn't find the pants.

    Ties, (l-r) Bottega Veneta, Gieves and Hawkes, Cornelia James, Ely Limited. Not familiar with those last two brands, but they're 100% silk, made in Britain and I dig the patterns.
