    Look FAKE to me also, plus "several jacksons" is a lot if you're not 110% sure.


    I totally forgot to take a picture of my "thrift rack" but there was plenty [​IMG] Pins soon once

    What's the single best thing you've ever thrifted and how much was it?

    For me, a Comme Des Garcon wool coat $4

    For me, a $6000-7000 RLPL cashmere topcoat for $10. Something actually for myself, that is hanging in my closet? This:

    Cost me $50 but worth every cent! Feels like wearing a cloud made of cashmere made from angle feathers.
    edit: It's also got a belted back.
    These are a close second, $9

    Another question, what thrifted item have you worn the most? For me, besides some shoes and shirts, it's this vintage tweed blazer, one of the first that I picked up when getting into the thrifting game. The thing fit perfectly, right off the rack.

    To continue the outerwear theme: This mint Ben Silver tweed polo coat ($20) is one of my favorite finds. Gifted to a buddy.

    It's tough to choose one though. The runner-up is probably a 1950s Brooks Brothers tuxedo in my size. Lately I'm more excited by the true vintage stuff, even by unknown makers, than by the ten-year-old high-dollar stuff.


    Brooks Brothers hopsack navy blazer, triple patch pockets. Not my most exciting find, but I wear it once or twice a week.

    Next to a Mandelli quilted jacket, this is my dream piece of outerwear.

    I found a couple of pieces of fairly recent Polo Golf in size Small today, I've been checking the light jacket rack and the sweater rack at the new Savers near work to find lightweight outerwear to pack into my various 'emergency clothes kits' that I'll be stashing in each car. Today at lunch, I found the very similar predecessor of this navy 100% polyester golf shirt/jacket. They priced it at $7.99, the going rate for all the jackets but there was what appeared to be a piece of candy (looked like a melted caramel) stuck to the hem as if someone had sat in it. At the cashier, I asked if they adjusted prices for things like that and she immediately called for a manager who showed up, took one look and asked if $2.99 was acceptable. I looked doubtful for a nanosecond and then said, "Sure!". I know a 'treatment' to get the food off. :nodding:

    [​IMG]

    It has an ingenious sack pack for self storage built into the back. :cool:

    I also picked up the Polo Golf 60% cotton/40% poly pull over quarter zip fleece top for $8 just because I could. :happy:

    Oh yeah, they had an argyle L.L. Bean made in Ireland wool sweater vest in Small for $3. I took all three today for less than $16. Nothing picworthy but I'm quite happy.

    favorite find?
    hard choice, either my Brioni Blue pinstripe150's. paid $25. in this old thrift fit.
    [​IMG]
    (yes the tie is bad) i have nicer ties.[​IMG]
    or a yellow cashmere sweater. forgot the price.

    Most worn? this old thing. 55 years on and still works perfectly. it has made my other watches obsolete.
    [​IMG]

    I really love the Patina, and the styling is subtle. this gets worn 5 days a week.[​IMG]
