 Those are buffalo. You stole them. I've been looking for a pair for 5 years, and they're worth considerably more than you paid.
 For posterity:  
My first really weird shipping experience today: a few weeks ago I paid $100 for a vintage t-shirt. Seller shipped from California to Toronto...in a paper lunchbag.
GANT tweed sportcoat. The base color is blue with a lavender/lilac windowpane. The sportcoat is fully lined in a pink/lilac rayon-cupro. It has side vents, faux pick-stitching, a high gorge, a modern 2-button closure. It's in nice condition with no issues.   It's tagged an EU 50, and measures and fits like a US 42R. Lying flat, it's approximately 22" in the chest, 18.5" in the shoulders, 26" from the shoulder-seam to the cuff (both sleeves), and 29" from the bottom of...
A cool piece of Americana/Canadiana for the thread. Not politically correct, but this might be the only one in existence, and so I post for posterity. Check out the dates and the scale (I have it leaning against a library cabinet, and the boot trees are about 16"). I'll have to get it properly framed:    
A couple of months ago I was able to pick up a bunch of suits that had been custom-ordered from a Toronto menswear store, but had never been picked up. This Zegna Su Misura 2-piece is one of that bunch. Because the suit has been tailored for another person, I'm going to call it "pre-owned". However, it is in excellent condition, and I'm nearly certain that it's not been worn. This is from Zegna's Swiss production, and it's clearly dated to the last quarter of 2014. The...
This custom-made Samuelsohn suit still has its $1,830 price-tag affixed to the sleeve. This suit was made-to-order, but was never picked up by the buyer. It's the 4th and last custom piece that I'll be selling at an outrageous discount. The pants are unhemmed, the jacket pockets are basted shut. The piece is new. The only condition issue is that the loop at the neck and the Harry Rosen tag on the lining have been clipped to prevent return. Also, the person who ordered the...
Custom Samuelsohn DB suit, made in 2014, that was not picked up, and hence remains new and unworn. The flap pockets are basted shut, and the pants are unhemmed. Though buttons have been added to the sleeves, buttonholes have not been added. The suit is a modern DB with side vents, 6 buttons, flat-front pants, and classic lapels. The fabric is a Super 130s Glen Plaid woven by Ariston in darker blues. The suit is of course fully canvassed.   Some notable features: the...
Am I alone in thinking that eBay should create some kind of mechanism that blocks buyers who submit insulting low-ball offers from responding to your counteroffer by shaving dollars off of their bid? For example, the buyer who offers $200 for your $700 item, then counters your offer of $500 by dropping their bid to $150. That buyer is basically an asshole.   I can understand letting buyers submit any offer initially (they might be broke and looking for a deal). Letting...
This is a Samuelsohn 3-piece suit in Loro Piana Super 150s worsted wool. The suit was a custom piece, made in 2014, that was not picked up, and all of the pockets remain basted shut, the pants are unhemmed, and the Order Tag remains affixed to the waist. (I've used Photoshop to black out the name on the order tag and content tag.) The suit is in New condition, with the only issue being that the person for whom the piece was commissioned has had his name stitched into the...
