Naw this was (I'm pretty sure) low budget, but looks good because everyone involved knew what they were doing and were passionate about the project.
Secret santa gift is all wrapped up and ready to send out. Hope they dig, I managed to hunt down some specific items and tossed in a random thingy too.
The general rule to thrifting is the shittier the neighborhoods, the better the potential for grails! More crack heads/hookers/gang bangers/ hanging in front of the store, the better chances of you finding the good stuff! Go forth and pillage!
Hey buddy, thanks so much for that awesome PS trade! I got it back from the tailor a few months ago and forgot I had it until today. It looks really good! Respect!
Went to a thrift store for the first time here in Austin and was really lucky.
Found a Hamilton Shirt Company button down (blue and white micro-check) for 3 dollars and a Pendleton flannel for 2 bucks.
Not a bad first go at it!
Sorry Spoo, not you. It takes a lot to irritate me, but that was getting ridiculous last night. I assume it was some sort of noob conspiracy.

Edit: Who gets pocket squares tailored
I still have to get the pants to the tailor. I have been so lazy about that lately. They look good in my closet though! haha
Sorry I guess I didnt think about that. Didnt mean to spam. Ive edited the post. As a side note, Im totally down with trading them if someone has something interesting in my size.
Holy shit, its not often a brand is posted for the first time, I think. You sir have as many TOJ items as are currently on ebay.
Edit: Everyone please post a list of your most productive stores, in order of production with highlights of the best items, and post all the addresses GO!
I love thrifting.
Some of my recent finds .......
Paul Smith Brogues £3 - from the Buddhist centre Shop.
Paul Smith (London) Jacket. Italian Made.
Harris Tweed number.
Rather (I think) Splendid seersucker shirt.
A Brooks Bros DJ for £10.
New Ralph Lauren Purple label shirt.
and the Pièce de résistance as I have been hunting high & low in London for a seersucker suit.
£25 brand new - Jacket fits like a glove, trousers need slightly altering.
And to think I almost missed out on it. Im happy to have my very own first in this insane megathread. Haha.
Just as a quick tip. The usual course of dealings on the thread is to write "Available" or "Unavailable" when you post the brag for the first time. Then, people often will PM you asking how it should proceed from there. There has even been considerable debate on whether this A / NA method is the right way to handle things, but I think it makes it clear whether the item should even be pursued by anyone or if the finder plans on to keep it. Trades are often the preferred method too, but obviously not everyone has something in your size to be able to trade.
