Nice 1922 sterling silver desk set
I do a lot of thrifting - my initial sorting of items is done on the basis of brand / quality of the items, and then I work out whether the good quality stuff will fit. The price difference between middling and top quality items is not sufficient to make it worthwhile picking up the middling quality stuff unless the fit really is superb.
Nice SAB wallet - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=180478723736 Fantastic black Crocodile case - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=320498896714 This seller has lots of T&A ties, £27 BIN with the current exchange rate seems a fair price - http://clothes.shop.ebay.co.uk/Mens-...=p3911.c0.m282 Nice set of diamond and gold Asprey vintage cufflinks - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=150421855479

Charvet shirt was £11. Shell loafers were £65 so not much margin there....

Handmade bespoke Italian short sleeve linen shirt Patagonia Synchilla fleece jacket Other stuff I saw; Shoes by Poulsen Skone (tan suede half-brogues), C&J cordovan loafers (with amazing patina), Church's Oxfords (multiple pairs) A whole load of Kiton suits and...
