    Yes, I do hate you. But if you want to change my mind, you can send the jacket my way :D Lovely find.

    Couldn't say no to this as it fit almost perfectly OTR. Anyone know Raleighs is? I couldn't find anything on Google, perhaps a longer existent department store? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think I'll hit the Vancouver Lululemon factory outlet in Vancouver when I return in 2 weeks. Just Googled the address, although I don't think there would be any spectacular deals. Anyone want me to keep an eye out for anything for them?

    Having read the whole thread...after beginning my thrifts...I can assure you that you will save some decent change if you educate yourself first. I still have a random YSL tie and dior dress shirt laying around somewhere...

    My GF wears a S/XS. I would love to pick up some stuff for her for Christmas if the price point is decent.

    Agree, you just have to know what's ok, what's ridonkulous (I have now incorporated this into my SF vocabulary), and what is just plain crap. A few pages back someone said he heard other flippers getting excited over Pierre Cardin. Don't be that guy.

    Never settle for anything polyester (it's one of my rules, unless it's a rain coat, then it's different). I made a lot of mistakes when I first started thrifting, like buying a few fake Hermes ties, not knowing what can be tailored, and buying Christian Dior crap, just because it's Christian Dior.

    Alright Fellows, prepare for a barrage.

    This is part 1:

    Part 2 to follow tomorrow.

    All wares are available at cost or near cost or trade or free or whatever....

    Samuelsohn Prince of Wales Suit SZ 42R Pics, My cost = $40.
    This is pretty darn mint condition, not to mention babetastic looking.

    Do you think this is an ordinary outdoors jacket with red black plaid?

    Wrong!
    It is Saint Andrews, best jacket tweed find I have ever made. SZ seems to be like a Medium.
    This sucker cost me $80 though :( but I could not leave it there.

    Luciano Barbera Cords, SZ 48. My Cost = $15.
    Best thickest brown cords ever, one of you guys will rock these. Best thing though - these are absolutely mint, as if unworn!

    Brooks Brothers Hooded Wool Silk Jacket, SZ L. My Cost = $20.
    Amazing soft luxury for me. Damn fucking sucks it does not fit my arms :fu:. Extreme dissapointment. This jacket will fit many of you chaps I know out there, just PM me and take this out my hands.
