dude youre in NY,thats MCM central baby.you could be the DM7 of mid century modern
Does it matter if there is a pattern - i.e. faint pinstripe or glenplaid? Only solids avail at the mo here are black or light colors like khaki or white/cream.
I'm in ROCHESTER, NY... not NYC... maybe there's good stuff around here at estate sales, but I've been just hitting thrifts and there's hardly any furniture
finally had time to hit it today!
first 3: recent Polo, made in italy
next 3: hermes
two recent unworn (?, pockets sewn shut) 3 button hugo boss suits
willis geiger, duchamp london, duchamp london, d&g, loro piana, robert talbott carmel linen (made in china but huge MOP buttons, really nice)
vineyard vines x2, zanella linen, zegna linen, RG
oops forgot the flash. mint park aves, pebble grain aldens
okay here is my favorite find from today. found this great great old Pegasus black leather carryon bag. insane quality, better than the old Louis Vuitton bag i found, super heavy duty talon zips, leather is really nice (kinda beat up though), and doesn't even weigh that much. the good news: it was $4. the bad news... i got it home and realized i didn't have the combination. So... 750 tries later (and about 2 hours), i now know the combo. derp. now i just gotta remove previous owners initials.
Here's a headshot of valium:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
i dont get it,should i be insulted or not....i seriously dont know
I thrifted five cases of Tinactin once. True story.
@ mainy,theres nothing better then old leather ...except maybe old wood
regarding the combination,im sure a seasoned pro like you knows to try 000 first,but i have opened a few cases in my day,this is how i do it.
pull slightly where the lock is while turning each number slowly waiting for some slack and then go to the next number and repeat,works 100% of the time
i still dont get it,why do i have atlhetes foot?
i smoked a doobie abut an hour ago so im not firing on all cylinders,explain
yeah it ended up being 747 (lol) i think it was probably a pilot's bag. tried all the tricks but sometimes you just gotta do it the hard way
I could definitely use some glen plaid...
I also need SCs, but I need to find some SCs in your size first!
damn valium that is some MCM heat.
Since DM7 hasn't posted tonight, I'll chime in with what is by far my most surprising find to date.
A NWT dress from The Row, the Olsen twins' insanely expensive fashion line. This retailed for $1350 at Barney's. It was a part of their first collection, S/S2011. I would think I'd have to be the first person ever to see this line in the wild, since it's only been in existence for three seasons. Also picked up a Jil Sander t shirt, so all in all, not a bad day
