    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Wow! Sounds like a crazy haul! That Brioni S/C sounds interesting!


    I'd love to find some of these Jack Robie shirts in my size. I came across 4 NWOT shirts at my local thrift a year or two ago. Size M too and they fit slim. Passed them onto someone on here. They're great shirts. Excellent cut and really well made.

    Agreed. Colors are great, buttons are great, quality is up there, they're made in America and retail for the same price as PRL. I'm not sure why MC isn't more up in that business. (Is that a real saying?)

    Having been in Walmarts in about 20 states, I wholeheartedly endorse that statement. Nothing beats walking through a Walmart Superstore at 2:00AM in the middle of nowhere. Well, perhaps Dollar Stores in small town West Virginia... That beats all!

    Atlanta as well, but don't worry I'm not really any competition for flippers. I go once a week for a few hours Saturday mornings on different routes close to home, mostly as a stress reliever. Yeah the GB for Muses I thought was a neat quasi-historic thing to have - as mentioned it has some weird fabric damage on the back right at the bottom (and on the *back* of the shirt, not the front), so it won't show when worn. I was thinking purchasing non-my-size-items strictly to potentially start trading on here as there are some items that I know are going to be very difficult to find in my size and so trading through this community will be easier.

    Only one shirt in this particular batch still had the collar stays, one of the Brooks Brothers and they are only plastic (but with a nice silver BB logo [​IMG])

    I remember someone saying the thrifting was terrible.

    You're doing it right. Just aim for things that fit you and fill a hole in your wardrobe (or are just too fantastic to leave). It probably won't take long to collect many more shirts and SCs than you need, then you'll have a better eye can start being more discriminating, and you'll surely re-donate some of this stuff. As you learn what you like, and what people on this thread like, you'll get a better sense of what's worth buying to flip.

    So I leave for a few months to get all lawyerly and we've got people in Ferrari's now?? Damn, I shouldn't have fallen off the wagon, I might've had a Bugatti had I stuck with it.

    Good to be back though guys, glad to see people are still killing it and doing their thing. Back in NY this summer so I'll probably be doing a bit of thrifting here and there, but also gonna be looking to pick up some staples and maybe some new shoes/shirts. Ended up going through with my plan and finally gained a little weight and mass; the young man is getting grown :slayer: Hope everyone has been doing well, love seeing the posts up here again.

    Some finds:
    I’ve found 2 staple navy blazers w/gold buttons in 2 weeks. Both in my size (!) One is a Pal Zileri one that will probably need liner repair. The other is a BB Brooksease that is 3 roll 2 with LP fabric. Because of this, I’ll make available another BB brooksease navy blazer that has served as a major workhorse for me in the trade thread (apolgies for the bad pix, but when I get something for me, I usually take a backseat pix then it goes to the dry cleaners)

    Nice construction on this shirt and it may be a SWD fave, but not sure.

    Best personal find in a long time: One of you dudes posted a Tincati suit recently. However, the one that was posted was made by Caruso, I think. This Tincati is made by St. Andrews. Maybe Tincati is like R. Lauren that gets several makers to do their stuff. Regardless, this is a great piece. Fully canvassed, 3 roll 2, coveted light grey color, split vents. My size! It did have a small hole in the back but I’m gonna get this reweaved because this is a color I really need.

    I'm no Spoo but I'll say real and gator, since it's missing the iso pores that croc skin has.

    Where would a NWOT, drop crotch, twisty legged pair of these rate on the rarity scale (in the US at least)?

    Made in China.

    I felt a bit like the Anti-Foo. I left it.

    This was five bux. Should I have kopped it? Andhurst. 40R. Cotton. A variety of alternating pastel stripes.

    What would I wear it with?

    I've passed on these shirts before due to not my size. If they were, I would cop.

    I looked like your average crazy when I found this. I actually shouted at this "what the fuck are you doing here?!?"
