Good or bad YSL? Made in France.
How incredibly weird. Found that exact same YSL tag today for the first time, and was going to ask the same question. I pass on the YSL stuff all the time, but this one seemed nicer (side vented, French made, natural shoulders, hand sewn lapels). Didn't have any "Rive Gauche" marking (which I already know is the good stuff), but seemed older, so maybe pre-licensing? Would also love to know the answer to this one.
Yea it seemed a little nicer than the usual but I still passed. If it is real though, I'd love to know within the next 40 minutes
Wow - crazy! I love B&W stuff. High-end audio is tough to come by in thrift stores. Seems like there are 10 times more flippers for electronics than there are for men's clothing.
I like a lot of the newer Gant stuff. The Rugger line is geared towards the younger crowd and has some really nice, slim fits.
So tempting.....Must resist......
The volume of Carrol and Co. stuff you find is astounding, but Ann D. boots in a thrift?!!? That's an oldish label, but the brand is coveted by nearly all SW&D folks and known to those who buy quality brands of any sort. Not that these are going to avoid the black hole that is your insanely fortunate eBay partner, but what size are they?
Noobizor will flip 'is shit when he sees these as well, may even post a string of animated gifs.
speaking of SW&D: is there a thread somewhere on that side that has some sort of "top 10 essential SW&D pieces for someone just starting out" or something like that? i've been wanting to improve my weekend wardrobe, but dunno where to start. if there's no thread like that, maybe between you SW&D-minded thrifters can put something together for us older heads?
The SW&D section of SF is rather diver, so no there's really nothing like that. If you want cheap, easy style just check out reddit's MFA; they're a much more homogeneous community, albeit not nearly as well dressed.
I was out of town on business. My meetings ended early, and so I hit a couple of stores. Not much bragworthy: a BR shirt with real, thick and BR branded MOP buttons that I will strip (and then reuse the relatively cool stripey shirt fabric to make an accent pillow or something). Also found a really nice Gitman Bros (my first) tux shirt in relatively good shape, real MOP buttons in a nice contrasting smokey gray (though not where the studs are supposed to go). I also found three sets of Allen Edmonds shoe trees and talked the clerk into selling them to me for less than a fiver each.
Keeping them for now, but the Gitman is available. I can measure it up and photograph it if anyone is interested.
+1. And decent jeans to buy. I had a pair that fit me really, really well (will NOT say the brand; ) that recently crapped the bed.
Interested in the Gitman if it's around a 16x34
+1. I've only found one Ann D. piece ever. It was a black button-down shirt. It blew my mind that I even found Ann D. in Minnesota.
Not that I know of, but the first essential piece IMO is denim. Get a pair of nice fitting, raw selvedge denim jeans. KMW, Jean Shop, The Stronghold, APC and even J.Crew has some really nice offerings.
