I'll throw my hat in the ring... PTP works as do shoulders - hoping for arm length ~26"...
In this episode of Tales from the Dressing Room....
We see the keepers: Coogi Blue Jeans, Brooks Brothers, Saks Fifth Avenue House Label
These were released back into the wild: Monsieur By Givenchy, Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece long sleeve polo, Renzo Palandri, and a Zegna.
Finally, a grail find. You may not be able to tell, but it has 3D features and a bell attached. Yes, I bought this and yes I will be wearing this to a Christmas party this year.
In a surprise twist ending, I actually talked myself out of buying the Coogi jeans because I would never wear them and flipping seemed to be risky.
Hey, I was there a few hours ago! That BB Golden Fleece Polo seemed rather large.
Thank you for your overly kind words. Even if the stores aren't as good, I won't have mainy to compete with!
hey guys, I'm a noob at this thrifting thing...recently went to my local thrift store and came across a 100% silk SC made by Ibiza? I was wondering if this is a good find? I would post pictures but i cant seem to figure out how
We may have crossed paths then. It was labeled a large, but seemed closer to an extra large. It also had some strange pale spots on the bottom.
Hey man, welcome to the thread/forum. I hate to be that guy because I think some new guys, to the thread/forum, get a raw deal.
This is a great site that will be very helpful in the start of your journey:
Stopped by a store today. Haven't done much thrifting since the haul.
Samuelsohns are 40R, Oxxfords 43R, Zegnas 42 and 44R, Chester Barrie 44R, Brioni 44R
Availiable-ish, meaning, if you offer a fair price, I will be inclined to sell directly. Otherwise, it gets shipped off for the bay.
working on the haul 2
Maybe you should give people some guidance on what you consider a "fair" price?
Edited: Prom joke deleted bc of realization of generational gap
don't forget the (presumably 50%) cut that gets handed over to ebay consignors/selling partners.
Does this apply to purchases of barns as well?
I wish I was still wearing sport coats regularly. That should fit me nicely but as I sit here in my black shirt and khaki pants I think...what's the point?
In other news, I found this Zegna Soft shirt in what everyone HERE tells me is the worst possible color for me (light olive?) but it's the color that the "House of Cards" wardrobe folks are making us wear. I'm determined to dress myself for this show as much as possible but I'll be damned if I'll buy Staffords just because they're my size and the right color!
Then I found this PRL. It fits guuuuud!
I take my little victories where I can find them but if anyone posts a pair of 9 1/2 D US shoes and I act interested, smack me until I wake up.
