    Yes, one of them! And :slayer: on the Studio D'Artisan! Wow!
    Yes!! I still haven't found any Cloak and am not really planning to unless the mystery Yohji donor has some in his stash and will donate it in the future. Crazy find!

    Cloak is rare even among the SF fashunz-seekers. Its name evokes mystery and fear. :)

    Nataku frickin' killed it today. Dang, never see that stuff in a thrift around here, even the 1 or 2 "nice" places.

    I popped into three GW's today; found some stuff, including a couple that intrigue me...

    PRL cotton sport coat. Working cuffs, nice madras details inside.

    Brooks Brothers fleece that needs a very good cleaning.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Women's Wilson's leather jacket with no wear that I can find, not even on the cuffs (where they usually wear first).

    One of the intriguing items - wool & cashmere blend overcoat, made in England, brand name "Hammersley". Have not eBay searched yet - hope it's a find!

    The other item of intrigue - Kenzo Homme collarless men's jacket, made in France; another tag attached with some hand-written stuff on it. No idea on this one (I know Kenzo, but not whatever this thing is).

    A few BB golf items - two long sleeve shirts and a sweater vest.

    PRL sort of fair isle henley thing.

    Women's apparently NWOT BB quilted coat.

    The coup de grace - I'm all over this come Xmas...hell, might turn the AC down to 60 so I can wear it around the house tonight. Thought it was a women's, but tagged Large and fits me...

    I still cannot believe that Iron Heart denim vest thing. I remember when he texted me the picture of the label, I gasped audibly. That and the TS x Solitary Arts. That thing is super recent! I was planning to get one but they sold out by the time I was able to fund it. :fu:

    TS x Solitary isn't mine. It's a fellow members and needed clarification since you are an encyclopedia of everything clothing LOL

    The Iron Heart is :drool:

    Btw, NICE FINDS!

    NAT, MY MAN.

    That Nice Collective coat looks surprisingly nice. Is that Brioni buckle highly polished silver or are those striations because it's MOP?

    EDIT:

    wtf Nom De Guerre trench. Shut up and take my money.

    Is RL Rugby a kop? I see it posted in here, not really sure. Local Marshall's had some Rugby ties dirty cheap, passed but was uncomfortable doing so.

    :fistbump:

    Thanks, I'm thrilled! The Brioni coat is the nicest piece of outerwear I've ever thrifted.


    Oh it's really nice. Shame it's a M. :(

    The Brioni buckle is actually polished horn. Looks amazing! This thing even has horn backer buttons!

    Spent the morning at the flea market, got some neat stuff....will follow up on that later.

    Headed into a nearby town for lunch, on a strategic move to get my wife to let me hit a pre-planned thrift stop. hehe. It worked.

    Got these NIB Custom Made Hornback Alligator Tail boots.

    I have had no problem flipping Rugby line items when they were on clearance, except for jeans. Ties, esp repp / trad / preppy stripe should do well.

    Bonus. Found this in the pocket of the previously-posted BB NWOT ladies jacket, along with the receipt for both the jacket and the scarf. Not like it's a gold Krugerrand or anything, but at GW prices, a new BB jacket and scarf for the price of one is a nice pick-up.

    Those boots are fantastic Wes. I may have to help a struggling private school if they are my size and show up in your store.

    On to my find, a pair of Stefano Ricci corduroy pants. They will fit great once I take off a couple of inseam inches. From the label mentioning a jacket , I guess they are an orphan, but I can't imagine that Ricci would have a corduroy suit.

    Thanks man, they are pretty cool, but weren't as cheap as I like to get them. They are 9.5 D

    That was on all the Ricci pants I found too. I think it means the front lining of the legs, rather than the cotton curtain lining of the waistband.

    Ok, now for the flea market stuff.

    For fall/winter listing. VTG Schott Shearling

    Odd hand carved long shoe horn, made from some sort of horn.

    The guy said Rhino horn, but I am skeptical of everyone at a flea market. Anyone know their horns and antlers around here?

    That would explain it, thank you Wes.

    9.5 means you now really have my interest. Of course, I can guarantee they sell for more than my clothing budget. :D

    I already have you saved as a favorite seller, so I will keep an eye out.
