    ^^^ [Sorry for the double post] Congrats Andro. The suit is pretty close right off the rack - whatever has to be done will probably not be much. [​IMG]

    O.k fellers, this is what I scored from my short but sweet thrift-down with GMMcl yesterday:

    RLPL linen trousers, traded from GMMcl, look forward to an all RLPL-linen-thrift-fit-pic-all-from-other-style-forum-members post

    Pretty fugly Gucci, available

    You all know by now my affinity for paisley print ties, Talbott hand sewn for Paul Simon
    [​IMG]
    Ancient red wool PRL for Eric Salm's Sussex Shop, with the OG price tag of $27.50. Does anybody else get excited by old labels. No? Just me?

    My new favorite tie, E. Marinella, my first! This thing is awesome! N/A

    Vintage Florsheim brick sole, suede, saddle shoes. I'm wearing the bitches as I type! N/A

    Chester Barrie for Harrod's glen plaid sport coat. Another first! Pattern matching is spot on, unfortunately too big for me and has a couple spots I'm going to try and work some magic on. Styling isn't very dated but the labels look old.Sz 44 maybe, haven't measured it yet. Tentatively not available pending spot removal.

    And these!!!!!
    Paul Stuart made in England canvas and leather spectators!!!! 22 nail heel pattern!! Sexy as all hell! My most favorite thrifted shoes so far. These are just a little too big though. :fu: :fu: Size is marked 11.5 M but must run small because they are only slightly to big for me. Anybody know a good method for shrinking shoes? :brick:

    Also, it's amazing how much thrifting ground two guys who know what to look for can cover in such a short time.

    I've got an OLD (1960's) Oscar de la Renta tie I thrifted when I first started. It must have been from when that was a good label... There's a McFarlin's price tag in it that I think was $30. One of my favorite ties, still:

    How do you spot treat? Interested in good ways to do this.

    Also, how big is "just a little too big"? What size do you wear? Those shoes are sexy as hell.

    I'm going to try using oxy clean, then water and then a blow dryer so no water marks are left. I did it on another blazer that had a big brown stain on the lapel, worked great, although these stains appear to be pretty set in, so we'll see.

    It wasn't that cheap (50 CHF that is 50$, I usually buy a whole bag of clothes with that amount of money) but I HAD to buy it.

    I'd kill for a pair of leather/canvas spectators. Found a women's pair today.

    Been finding absolutely nothing the last few weeks and getting a little jealous every time I open this thread. Hoping to find a little thrift time as I swing through Milwaukee and Chicago this weekend.
