    This is made in Mexico in a little town called Chiconcouac, normally from wool or a mix of acrilic and wool, made for tourists mainly

    That is one seriously low-hanging

    gorge.


    Sleeves and inseam are a bit long, but otherwise: dead on. Did I win? (I'm sure rocking a linen charcoal pinstripe suit would be a challenge, but I say BRING IT ON!)

    Availability:

    Tie Haul 1 is a keeper for me, not planning on flipping those ties (Brioni ties for sure keeper, others I may be more flexible).

    Tie Haul 2 is available would prefer a clean sweep of these ties - all ties one hit one trade or one cash amount near proxy.

    Excellent finds, as usual! Wow!




    :worship:



    Glad you could give them a good home! Enjoy!


    Finally found some stuff today! No thanks to thrift stores, no doubt. Been dryer than a bone at all my usual stores. Makes me tried just walking in the door. That's a bad sign.



    Couple ties. Sadly the Hermes has some stains (dark, so not easy to see). Oh well. First Hermes find in ages. Also, a nice house-label Bullock & Jones paisley. Swiss made.

    Other finds include a gorgeous Loro Piana checkered casual shirt, 2 Borrelli dress shirts (sadly one has t-rex arms I somehow failed to miss), RLPL spread collar white 120s dress shirt, light brown Allen Edmonds suede Melrose loafers (super recent, but 9 1/2 EEE) and a pair of NWT Chippewa green canvas & brown leather snake boots.

    Pics to come.

    Need advice: take a chance on a NWT Zegna tuxedo at $150? What's something like that likely to fetch on Ebay? It's 42L, SBPL. Stupid thing actually fits me beautifully, but I have no opportunities to wear black tie ever.

    Ebay, completed listings. (Sorry BP, you could've probably answered the same in a much more spectacular fashion.)
    For the record, the PRL toggle listed above is tagged S, just like the raincoat I picked up... however, it fits me (42) and could possibly fit someone bigger... weird shit. I'd hate to see an XL

    Don't know how much it's worth, but that thing is SICK!

    Depends on the Zegna line

    Cotton Dockers and Klobber killed it, nice stuff lads.

    I am 25 and had never heard of knit ties until I happened upon SF. I think it's just because of how uncommon ties are in general. The thought of an informal/casual tie is just doesn't make sense to many younger folks.

    Augh that's worse than the old lady who poses in lingerie.


    As for my own thrifting... I stopped in a Humana shop in Berlin today. Only thing even remotely OK was a Z Zegna suit, for which they wanted 70 Euro.

    They were also asking 200 Euro for a Bugatti overcoat. That's like a month's rent in Berlin.

    The 2 Brioni shirts I picked up earlier, worth even trying to flip or should I just re-donate? The first one is a very heavy weave and the second one is like a polo shirt weave, very lightweight.

    I am just not too sure what I am dealing with here. I'm used to finding dress shirts, but these are just strange to me. I was also not sure if the first one is too ugly even for Ebay.
