    I will try to remember :rolleyes:


    I didnt even look at sizes when i picked up the Isaia, i just saw "Isaia," and "Super 150s," and I pulled it off the rack and into my cart. It wasn't until I got home that I considered the possibility that it would fit me. Finding an Isaia in Eugene, OR would be sort of like a Polar Bear on a tropical island - so when I realized that it not only fit me, but feels like it was tailored for me, I was pretty stoked.

    This thing is by faaaar the nicest article of clothing I have had on.

    I haven't seen anything Isaia here. Congrats!

    I still owe you a PM, BTW. Spent the last two weeks moving - the only time I've been able to go to thrift stores was for the purposes of depositing things :fu:

    Well, it's past midnight and no LA haul, so allow me to dazzle you yawning viewers with what is surely the greatest Robert Graham find EVAR: brown (boom!), corduroy (boom!), medium (pow!), almost subtle! (double boom!). I only wish I could've gotten the color right on my phone....

    Also, SUCK IT HATERS! Look at this! Listed a wad of MC stuff on B&S, and converted it into these, my grail shoes. Lanvin (what what?). Buttery leather. Patent toes. Lamb suede panels. Waxed laces. Nylon foamy stuff around the ankles. The interior is made of clouds and smells like pure leather sehks. Witness my almost mid-life crisis in action, padding down the street. Haters gon' hate!

    Robert Graham is what makes me intentionally look for the most hideous shirts on the rack. So far unsuccessful.

    Those shoes are incredible noobizor. Congrats. Consign my stuff, I've been way to lazy :inlove:

    Picked up this beauty. Does anyone have info about this coat? Age? Value? I can't even tell what size it is :embar:

    There was a really nice red long-sleeve Faconnable 100% linen shirt, can pick it up for someone if they want it. Made in HK though.

    42 :teach:

    Damn, that's a nice jacket. It mentions a drop, so I'd head back for the pants.

    I searched all over including the women's section. Asked the girl at register if she knew whether it came with pants, but no luck :(

    There was a business card of some music teacher at a University in the inner pocket and a swatch of the fabric in a plastic baggy. Maybe I should call him :happy:

    *edit* There was also a woman there looking at pants who thought I was super creepy because I kept peeking around her trying to see the pants she was blocking. She kept looking back at me... just move your butt woman!

    42 short, I think. I think that's what the "C" means, anyway. Is drop always indicative of trousers? I remember reading somewhere that it typically lines up with length, but maybe I am misremembering and it was pants length. In any case, check the measurements, b/c I've noticed that European sizes sometimes fit a size smaller than their tag.

    Tis nice, though!

    ::EDIT:: Also, from the label, I don't think it's too old, but I don't think it's their most recent stuff. EZ tends to go for a nice wad of cash on ebay, almost no matter what, but this could net a pretty good return. Set a decent BIN price and it will flip quick.

    Message box has been flooded, I think I've responded to everyone.
    My "epic haul" from yesterday really wasn't a thrift bragging situation.
    Will be posting items at Ebay store, Dahl5yankees

    Thrift Fit Time!

    Finally ponied up and purchased a mannequin. Albeit a plastic hanging one. Anyway semi-drunkenly clothed him last evening and hung him up. I need to get a hook so I can hang him against a white wall background. Oh and yea I can't tie a dimple dammit >,<. Now I got the mannequin I need to work on lighting, background, tie pattern, pinning. Yikes
