    I'm no expert, so I would have passed on these....3 way colab (CdG, Opening Cerimony, and Levis) with spelling mistakes would scare me away

    Picked up a pair of AudioEngine A5s at my lunch break. I'm not familiar with AudioEngine, but this model gets great reviews online. They're in great condition and they powered on. I hope they work.

    Didn't take a picture in the store, but they had the same tag as the Levi's Fenom which looked like this:

    Makes me wonder if the Levi's Fenom are real because the ones Silverwarebandit linked were selvedge and the ones I have aren't.

    Reposting all the rest of those deetz in the spoiler below if anyone wants to take a second look.

    Four way collab with Speedo... what the fuck?

    32. If they are fake I can certainly proxy if anyone is into that. Same with the Fenoms, if those are also fake.

    Don't forget Speedo on there too!

    Sorry dude but they're fake (so are the ebay pair) :( The day a real speedo x levis x comme des garcons x opening ceremony pair of jeans exists is the day hell freezes over.

    Couple quick finds today! Only hit one store since I was hungry and didn't feel like driving around in a thunderstorm. Wasn't really in the mood at all. Left behind 4xPolo OCBD ($8 each, no thanks), A Jil Sander dress shirt (missing a button), 4x CT slim fit shirts, 6x The North Face shirts, 2x Hiras Bespoke Orphans.

    NWOB Doc Marten boots ($15). Green pleather, size 10 women's (EU 42). Somebody's gotta want these, right? RIGHT?

    @thriftydood Amazing stuff. That Patagonia is from their heritage collection which came out last fall. Looks like someone already beat me to PMing you about it. Otherwise I'd be all over that.

    Aah, cool. That place is bonkers. Went there once, too intense for me. No clue on them but judging by the styling I doubt they're anything special. Sorry man.
    :slayer: This is awesome! Love the vintage logo. Dibs if futuremyth passes.
    Don't think Lulu is fake (yet), so I'm gonna say real. Nice find!

    I was just at a Goodwill in Onalaska Wisconsin yesterday, wasn't expecting much. But there is apparently an apparel company in the area that does production for companies like Ben Sherman, Robert Graham, True Religion, Penguin, and others that donated hundreds of NWT hats. Many have clipped sample tags. They want $6 each, and I think someone with the capital to buy them could make a ton of money. Just want to help thrift thread bros out. I have some photos but can't attach them because the photos are on my phone. Any Wisconsin thrifters should go check it ou! Its crazy how many new hats there are!!!
    Take care,
    Sam

    Someone oughtta cop this Belstaff Circuitmaster leather jacket from Barneys main site, one left, size 38. Originally $2895, on sale ~ 75% off at $719, free shipping, free returns. Also on sale at the Belstaff site for $1158. I damn near copped it for flipping, but I wimped out and bought something else instead.

    ...the Belstaff is pretty badass tho:

    Haha you'd be surprised. I had a scuba sweater in bright yellow, some people messaged me through eBay telling me it's fake, and that there's multiple sites with evidence that the colour was never created.

    Rainy day in Denver, so I went thrifting:
    North Face half zip, slim XL (available)

    [​IMG]

    Oxxford slubby herringbone, 40R (available)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    H. Freeman, no content or size tag, so I will measure it out. Looks 44ish. Very lightweight and soft, which makes me think it could be a cash or silk blend (available)
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Andover Shop, will also need to measure, seems 38-40ish. The perfect fall tweed, dual vents, overvcheck, etc. (available)
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    100% Cashmere vintage overcoat with tons of hand work. (most likely heading to spoo once it gets cooler out)
