Sansome asked for some help getting some images posted 

A few pics of the oldest thing he's found so far.


And a picture from the college this shirt is from.

I picked up what looks like a 60’s-70’s sears Sherpa today, probably paid a little too much, but it has a good look to it.

That is a lovely blanket likeacannon!

I have been trying to find a marine corps one for a while now.


^ lets see if Imgur works... 

I found two of these Sears Pocket tees.  they're a bit snug, but I really love them.  They are a good 4-5x heavier than the counterparts I am able to pick up locally (target, et al)

I had a good thrifting day recently, found an old U.S. Navy blanket in pretty fair condition (only a couple moth holes) and a couple trunk down bandanas. Here's the blanket:

It would seem like 6 months ago- a guy came here on the site, he found a one wash leather patch Levi from the early 50’s- I haven’t been that lucky- yet

This guy found it at the goodwill near Levi HQ in SF

My girlfriend and I usually check out a few local places but I've never found anything worthwhile unfortunately.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's findings.

I found a pair of trickers brogue boots at a charity shop the other week. £20, barely worn.

Being the mercenary type, after a quick polish they sold for £170 on eBay within an hour of listing. A very rare lucky scoop.

Nice, Bob. I used to make a regular weekly circuit back in New Orleans. I'm too far from any thrift stores now for that to be practical.

I may not have looked well enough, but I am not sure that the thrift bragging thread survived recent tidying.

The portions of my wardrobe that aren't gifts, were thrifted. 

I could post paragraphs defining what thrifting is and is not  but  don't want to come across like a turd.  However, thrifting is not done on ebay or etsy, that much should be obvious.  I don't really consider flea markets thrifting either, as someone curated their stall and essentially did the thrifting for you. Garage sales, dumpster diving, and thrift stores are allowed as they require hustle , knowledge, and luck.

Once i figure out Imgur i will post some pictures.

My best recent find(s) were two pairs of youth jeans. 

Right Hand Twill Wrangler Blue Bell 13MWZ from the mid 60s (my brain is foggy on when they switched to broken twill) which i sold to a dealer/collector out west.

And a pair of Levis 505-0217 from around 70-71 probably.  
Big E 
'5' stamped on the top button
no 'v' stitch on fly
bartacked back pockets
single stitch
Surged Outseam and not selvage.
deeeeep indigo
bells
whistles
may keep for my son, but he's not really into jeans that aren't actually sweatpants these days so 


what about you?
