How do their sweaters fit? True to size or slim?

BAMFORD WoodmanV Neck Sweater/ Cream

Bamford have absurd retail prices, so called 'British Cucinelli', but the cashmere sweaters are very nice ,and for under 100 quid they seem good value. I'm tempted a bit now by a Bamford cord jacket (on B&S) or a grey cashmere double breasted w/ peak lapels. What are your opinions about Bamford? Made in Italy by whom?

Alexander McQueen loafers. The opening bid is $1999.99. The seller is taking offers but, as the seller cautions, please be realistic. After all, he paid $5000 for the shoes.

At that price they better come cat piss equipped. Also, must have been an awfully long runway to have that kind of wear.

I like it that the Seller is keeping it real. Couldn't be bothered to clean and polish.

For some reason I can't copy pictures from the listing.

But look at the pictures in the link.

If those obvious scuffs ( he says "distressed", but I see scuffed crap ) and that heel ( Cuban? ) are not worth a $2,000 opening bid, what is?

So you see, Fuuma's cat piss, cracked leather Berlutis were well worth the $500 or whatever

PS: From the listing copy, "Please look at the heel , Very unique shape" No shit Sherlock

I'm going to study his business model:

Buy shoes for $5,000. Get $5,000 worth of use out of them. Sell for $1,900. Profit.

Great stuff RJ. I always look forward to your posts in this thread. This seller has several different Drake's scarves at $75 BIN. I picked up one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Drakes-London-BN...item1c0ecefa4c They have lots of ties as well.
