Ughhhh, I wish those were my size. . I NEED those boots.
Found a BB Made in Italy Linen/Silk/Wool blend SC in tan, sized 41 if anyone is interested.
Mini-thrift fit pic:
Coat - No name green coat from a store in TN
Shirt - Barba Napoli
Tie - Massimo Bizzocchi
Pants - BB
Belt - Trafalgar
Shoes - Church's
Pocket Square - No name made in Italy
All thrifted except for the olive socks (STP)
Ditto the Burberry...
God damnit. How do all the damn good shoes come in a size bigger or under than mine? A 44 is like a 10.5 right? Do Europeans not have a size between 9 and 10.5 damnit!?
Here's hoping DM has something for me in his next post.
44 should be closer to an 11 I believe.
+1, found one like that made by St. Andrews.
BTW cptjeff picked up the Florsheims after all. Nice of you to give him first dibs.
Is anyone else having trouble with the spoilers??? For the last week or two, every time I try to make one it puts it at the top of the post and then I can't move it.
to make a long, epic, story short, there will be no pictures tonight.
the long, epic, story:
This morning I picked up 5 Brioni blazers, and an RLPL suit. I was content to end my thrifting day there.
I had some free time about an hour ago, and stopped by one of my stores. I just bought exactly 100 shirts. Over 90 of them are Turnbull & Asser. The rest are a mixture of Hilditch & Key, Fray, and who knows. All of them were freshly dry cleaned.
I rushed to my temporary abode. My plan was to take pictures with my phone, then come to the cafe that I am currently at to post the pictures. Unfortunately, they were painting with some spray thing... I made two trips to haul all of these shirts up to my room, and nearly died. I knew my air was running out, so I pulled out my phone, and snapped pictures of the bags, and a few labels. Unfortunately, in my hurry I forgot my phone charger.
Tally of the haul:
5 Brioni Blazers
1 RLPL Suit
90+ Turnbull & Asser Shirts
10 unknown shirts
PICS OR GTFO.
THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!!!
These posts are meaningless without pics for bragging, and if you want to make them available to us - if that ever happened in reasonable terms- then meaningless without pics or sizes. I know you are very young and all but this is getting to be tiresome.
Owch! Sadly I've only found one Arctyrex jacket ever. It was a basically unworn black Theta jacket in my size. I found it in 2006 and it was maybe a year old then so it was the Made in Canada stuff (I think they make in China now but it's still very well made). Still have it to this day and don't think I'll ever sell it as it's one of my favorite pieces out outerwear. If I ever get lucky enough to find another, I'll keep you in mind.
+1 on VSLI's comment - they are closer to an 11.
