    So yesterday was a pretty good day for me. Green was the lucky color on May the Fourth.

    My girlfriend decided to leave for the weekend so I was able to go nuts with the thrifting. Hit up 7 stores.

    First store was pretty dead. Managed to pick up a pair of MOP cufflinks for 5 dollah.

    Second store was a bust as well. Found a KR3W duffle bag, but they wanted $20.

    Third store was the first pick up. Got a Tom Ford era Gucci shirt.

    Fourth, fifth and sixth stores were all busts.

    Seven store was pretty nice. I found a recent Zegna here and had been checking back regularly. I almost decided not to go cause it had been dead the previous couple of days.

    First thing I check is the shirts.

    Notice this:

    [​IMG]

    Lanvin loves H&M. I was like sweet, I missed that collection, now I'm getting for 5 dollars!

    Second thing I noticed was:

    [​IMG]

    One of the nicest Steven Alan shirts I've come across. Shame it's a little wide on me.

    I was like dope, two sweet shirts in my size, that'd I wear. Not bad day.

    I head over to the suits/blazers and I look through every blazer and suit. HSM, HSM, Calvin Klein etc. I was like fuck this shit. Got to the last blazer and I noticed it was green. Like this:

    [​IMG]

    I was like, fuck that shit, it's a green blazer, probably made by some retarded drunky for St.Patty's day. So I wasn't gonna check it out. But my hand sweeps over it and I was liek, the fuck, this shit is hella soft. I was like... it's a periwinkle green, that shit hella gay. But it's hella soft. Guess I should at least check to see if it's cashmere.

    Flip it over and it's:

    [​IMG]

    I was liek oh hellllllllllll naw. Then I went crazy and stripped the place down.

    Ended up finding:

    Two pairs of unicorn Zanella's. They seem hella recent. My size as well. Except I don't really wear slacks so if someone wants it hit me up.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    One's charcoal, the other's lighter grey with blue, red and white faint windowpane.

    And a forest green Loro Piana.

    [​IMG]

    Weird right? My three best finds were green.

    Also picked up a pair of Gucci horsebits, but it's not worthy of pics. And a Burberry golf sweater.

    Best part, the most expensive thing was the Gucci shirt at $10. Kiton is a 42R

    Good man for thinking of me. I will definitely take dibs on that. Even if it dont fit or style not for me, I could easily send for proxy price to any member here that could use it. Dont pick up for the resellers here after a quick buck, I know how to spread the love around without even asking for a nickel of profit :)

    If you play slots, finding a Kiton sportcoat in the wild is like hitting the jackpot. You should not be a cock tease by posting find without size though :laugh:.

    Overall great score, I congratulate you on your efforts here. Treat your girlfriend to a nice meal since she implicitly contributed to your finds by leaving you on your own for the weekend LOL. When the cats away, the mouse comes out to play ;)



    For resale at profit or keepsake?

    Well your finds from before go up exponentially better - that is excellent haulage from SB particularly considering there are some pro flippers in the area.

    Went out today and found some cool stuff...

    First some proxied HF shirts:

    [​IMG]

    My first Borrelli! HUGE MOP buttons on it... 18L

    [​IMG]

    Someone said they like these Norwegian sweaters, right? If someone wants it you can have it cheap (size large), otherwise I'm probably gonna return it

    [​IMG]

    Is this the good YSL or bad? I can never remember. I'm guessing bad, but it was worth picking up to ask since I can return it

    [​IMG]

    Charvet tie... a couple pulls on the front, but not too bad for $2

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Bloomingdale's camel hair blazer

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers camel hair glenplaid (48L)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For me... been had Polo Madras... NWT!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a bit of a SW&D grail find... Eastland Made in Maine Falmouth Camp Moc's... Hand sewn in Maine of Horween Chromexcel, they retail for $275:

    http://www.eastlandshoe.com/product...e+camp+moccasin.do?sortby=priceAscend&from=fn

    These are NWOT and look like they've only been tried on, never worn outside. I think they're the "dark olive" color. I figured they wouldn't fit since they're a 9.5, but they do... Decisions, decisions...


    [​IMG]

    Everything's available except the madras and maybe (probably) the Eastlands...

    It's really cool. I found a newer Dansk one a few weeks ago and was disppointed to find out it wasn't one of the really desirable ones. Today when I saw this I knew it was "one of the good ones" from my research a few weeks back.

    Same as this one. I can get actual pics tomorrow if you're interested. Otherwise it's headed for the bay.

    That Borrelli is a babetastic shirt - how does that measure out? I am 18L although I often find Borrelli fits less than slim.
