Few pick ups from this week (please dont let my middlin finds be post # 40k..... )
Been crazy busy the last month or so, so I havent had too much time for thrifting, but try to get in a few trips pretty regularly
Shirts (T to B, L to R)
Facconable 100% Linen, Size L- almost every button has loose threads, but otherwise VG condition- who was looking for these (linen shirts), Mexi? )
Etro 43, prob @ 17 x 35 (available)
J Press (My size, keeping)
Borrelli (I think the twin to the 1 catside found,,- fits pretty well, keeping for now)
Gitman Bros, 17 x 36 white/off white w/ subtle stripes (available)
Brooks 346 mint cond silk/wool cool check pattern blazer 42R
Also picked up a J Crew suit for the bay, 40R w/ 32 waist, and some 37 W brown M2P Bill's Khaki's
In my personal experience even the recent lanvin ties, while nice, aren't really worth anything dollar wise
Also I don't think DM7 has officially quit posting
wow i just realized how close we are to 40k and nobody is posting this is tragic
Lol... I've got 5 minutes and then I'm leaving.
Is anyone even going to read this, or are you all watching the counter? :tounge:
I wasn't even going to GW today but my wife had to check for something.
First off, a NWT PRL Classic Oxford (blue & white stripe).
Then some sweet ivy league goodness. This baby must be over 45 years old and it's a long way from home.
PAtch pockets, beautiful lapel and buttons and single vent. Nothing in it but the H. Freeman & Son tags.
Only blemish is an ancient ink mark on near left shoulder blade.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Available to someone who'd give it a good home and party like it's 1959.
was bored the other day and picked these up
ferragamo, pink, gianni versace, edward sexton, burberry

how about a funky dentists chair from the seventies (a tattoo parlour owner bough this one off me)
very rare japanese Yamada Shumei

as exciting as those were there was only one item that really blew my mind (im a bit jaded after all these years of finding shit)
a brand new never ridden 1971 Japanese Bridgestone bike with the warranty card and instruction s still attached at a goodwill for $100 ( a guy fooowed me to the parking lot and offered me $500 on the spot but this one is a keeper).
all the lights still work,has the original Primus pump and tools in tool box.i cant even find a a pic of a used one never mind a new one.
the only pic i could find is in a Bridgestone Brochure from 1971
this thing is heavy but its fast
and a guy i know,i was actually precent when he found it got a REAL vintage Tag Heuer Monaco for $7.99 at Value Village (Savers)
That's what I'm talking about!! Saw you in the room and was hoping for fireworks.
DM7 with a haul post for 40k....that's what we were hoping for 10k posts ago.
^ That's how you do 40000!
RE: Gant Rugger. I've found some old Gant Rugger stuff that didn't seem especially nice. I think it's just the more current Rugger, designed by Christopher Bastin, that's desired.
I know you were never really gone DM7, but welcome back anyways. There were 27 of us on at the time of 40K, and I was hoping someone would step up with something worthy!
Nice....perfect timing as well.....
I wonder how many times DM7 hit refresh waiting to post that awesome haul.
