    Found a pair of Ferragamo's today. But because of my amazing luck, they had no price tag! And of course if it's at a thrift store and isn't priced, they can't sell it until the next day after they price it. Fuck. [​IMG]
    If it's a Salvation Army or a Goodwill ask if there's a manager working,and if there is ask him if he can price it.Most employees aren't authorized to price items,and if you leave it and come back later hoping it will have been priced it may have already been sold.

    Hi, this is one of my first posts on Style Forums. I went thrifting for the first time this weekend and this is what i found at a few stores.
    2 Yves Saint Laurent shirts and 1 YSL sportswear vest
    the rest are in the photos.
    Can anyone provide any info to the green labeled Ralph Lauren items? i've never seen it before and the stuff i found seem nice and of good material.

    I believe the green labeled RL items are the Lauren line made for lower end dept stores and the lowest end line for RL (below polo).

    Why are people buying Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior?

    Jos A. Banks Camel Hair SC picked from SA. $8.99
    Brag part is that earlier in the week I walked into Jos. Banks (was killing time while wife shopped) and tried on this exact SC which was tagged $249.99

    I usually wear 38R..this one is 39R so its a little big. Not sure if I will pay to have it altered.

    I think you need to be wearing a 36R. That sucker is way too big, and I can't imagine an inch off the size making that much of a difference.

    The camera angle makes this SC look long, it is too big but I think taking it in a bit will be OK.
    Some 38Rs are too small for me, so I can't imagine fitting into a 36R. I guess with some labels I can try. I'm 5'10 165lbs (usually 160) with a 32w (33 in the winter if i'm lazy).

    I've noticed JAB consistently being overly large in the shoulders. I can get away with a 40 from them if I want to - pretty much everything else is a 41 or 42. Even a 43 here and their.

    Picked up a Charles Tyrwhitt fleur de Lys tie today for $1.50. CT is running a sale on this particular tie on their site for $49.00 (down from $100) so a good deal and I'll wear it.

    I don't think you missed too much. Hate to be blunt, but there has been a lot of crap showing up on here lately.
