Just found a Savile Row bespoke suit in my size. The tailor is Brian S. Burstow. But..... the pants have some gnarly stain on the thigh. Like the poor guy dropped a plate of food on his beautiful suit. I'll be damned if I leave Savile Row anything so praying I can clean it.
I've only found one, it was from Coppley. Was either half canvassed or fused, can't remember.  I remember it was a tough sell despite being a nice fabric. Not too many people searching for Robert Talbott clothing, I guess. 
Vintage Polo with big graphics like that duck shirt is generally not something to pass over. Looks like that particular shirt isn't mega valuable so no big deal (there is one sitting on the other site for $85)   ....but if you pass just because it's ugly, then you're likely to pass over others which could go for hundreds. Some of the big graphic shirts like the casino, cycling, etc go for crazy money. 
This sucks. I thought I could thrift after class a couple times a week or something, but nope. In the past 6 weeks all I've thrifted is a pair of AEs and an Etro pocket square. crap.
I'd be real curious to know where that turned up. Never seen Savile Row anything here.Awesome to see that, but makes me miss thrifting. In my sixth week of law school and finding time to thrift is no longer possible. Unfortunately I've been forced to bow out.
Can't trust any of Linda's measurements. I bought a loro piana coat from her, size 3xl and the listing said 46" chest. I bought it because I know I wear 3x in loro, sure enough it arrived with a 26" p2p measurement.
Costco sells men's fragrances?    My local stores I shop at have had women's only. Did get a bottle of Tom Ford Black Orchid there (Unisex scent, I guess?), but finding Creed there....wow, great find. 
 I was trying to think of what shirt would retail for $2K and could not come up with the answer. Of course I overlooked something that I own myself. I have the same shirt in light blue (assuming it's the same). Thrifted before I joined SF, I think. 
I think most people who post here prefer goodyear welted shoes. The tramezza line will get you that, but at their retail price there are better ways to spend your money.    I have a couple pairs of tramezzas that I love, but I got them on clearance. 
Someone beat me to a similar cane last week, except it had a horse head handle. Who knows, it could have been the sword one...I'll never know. He was an older guy and probably had more use for it than me, so I accepted my defeat.    Had it been an umbrella with that handle, then i'd really be pissed.
