It was a joke! LOL.

But I did find nice puma sneakers that fit me just fine.

So...what you're saying is that I should keep my 48R suits? I still have 2 left. One of them is just being obliterated as a beater suit.

I wear a 9.5. What is B&S?

Another for Carmina over the EG. I actively dislike that EG last. It's like it can't make up its mind over whether to be chisel toe or rounded

Edit: I now need to sell the stuff that will rarely get used. Anyone who wears a 9.5US, keep an eye out on B&S over the next several weeks !

She'd probably take his Formosa suits.

I'll let you know when I post some items or shoot you a PM before I post to see if you have any interest.  

 

Edit: you too @ellsbebc

Cool, man.

I do not understand.

Why do so many things drop so much in value as soon as you buy it?

A guitar that costs $2,000 brand new drops to $1,500 after just a month or so.

Clothes and other accessories (watches) have even worse drops.

It is interesting to see suits costs $3,000 brand new being sold for $500, just after couple of wears. 

It still is the same suit with very minor wear.

Welcome to fashion. There are shockingly a few things that hold their value. Things that the market has to create a need for are not included in that.

That is why it is worth spending time on B&S.  You will surely have some hits and misses, but the really good hits make up for it.  Knowing your measurements is very important for successful shopping.  That and don't be a d*ck and throw out low ball offers when you know you are getting good value (not saying you personally, just making a general comment).

Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Some will dispute this, but at the core of things, this is really true. If I can afford to pay 1500 dollars for a used suit I can probably afford to pay $2000 dollars for a new one that I know will be perfect, and I can probably get tailoring included. So where is the incentive to buy something for 1500 that I don't know the history of and will have to pay even more to get tailored?
