UPDATE!: I will be doing things as follows: the most recent additions (anything added in the past couple of days) will be going up top. Otherwise, items will go in the proper area (ties, shoes, whatever). All items from the Minisale thread have been brought into this one. Please note that I have set up a GrandCentral number that will ring my cell phone -- please call this if you have any questions that you would like answered quickly or you feel like berating me for any reason. I live in the Eastern time zone of the US and I barely sleep, so feel free to call me at 3 in the morning if you really need to know the width of a shoe or something, I totally don't care. For those who aren't familiar, GrandCentral provides alternate phone #s so you can publicly provide a number without giving out your permanent phone number. Make sense? Anyway, for reference, three ways to get in touch and ask me to measure something, describe something, photograph something, whatever: Call Bergdorf Goodwill (I answer to Jake): 740.661.4262 AIM: gilscottheroin PM: You already know how to do this. Paypal: email@example.com (feel free to donate tens of thousands of dollars so I can go to college and stop being useless) MOST RECENT ADDITIONS 7.20.07 Two TM Lewin shirts, 15.5/33. $30 for one, $55 for both.

TIES I have loosely organized the ties for sale, shot them in groups, and attempted detail shots. My hands are not the steadiest things in the world (lol stress alleviate it with your dollars), so please forgive the flash giving some of these lovely cravates a Jones New Yorkian sheen -- I assure you it is illusory. All prices include shipping within the US (and likely overseas, unless you're trying to get me to ship these things to Lagos or something).

He offered no further comment.) Brown/yellow/white Church's $20 SOLD.

Or you can just give me $5 for it, if you don't have any use for ties of your own and simply need to clothe your small person. Group C: L-R: Skinny vintage Balenciaga paisley, $15, Red Charvet paisley, $30, Luciano Barbera paisley $25 SOLD, Completely balls-out Pal Zileri paisley $20 SOLD, ultra-nice Aquascutum houndstooth/paisley combo (this one is really hard to let go -- note detail shot below) $25 SOLD, Blue Aquascutum paisley $20 SOLD, Tan Aquascutum paisley $15, red Aquascutum paisley $15.

Group O: Here we have an array of 24 knit ties. $100 for all of them or $6 apiece. If they go out in pieces, first person to order more than three at a time gets this sweet orange/green striped woolen (or if you are looking at this and just really like that tie, I'll take $10 for it). If they go out as a lot, I'll toss that tie in with it.

OUTERWEAR EU46 awesome green leather moto jacket from Spain. This is some Bergdorf Goodwill private stock right here. Amazing fit. This pains me. Buy this and get comments everywhere you go. $130. Size medium grey Armani Exchange moto-style jacket with two zipped breast pockets, double zipper. Paid full retail for this in the days when I was prone to such follies. It was somewhere in the $150-200 range, I think (yeah...). No exterior branding or other overt tackiness. Perfect for the guy who wants to dress like a Tekken character. Please excuse my laughable posed shot, my apartment is in complete disarray from photographing clothes and the timer caught me off-guard. $40. Vintage tough guy leather jacket, strikkly 4 tha S.T.R.E.E.T.Z. It's a size 44, and though it's obviously meant for a hard man, that leather is so soft. This is distressed, by which I mean it actually has cool distressing as well as some "oh, that's not ideal" distressing. Note detail photo. It's still as real as it gets. $30. JACKETS/BLAZERS NOTE: If the same person buys all three of the following jackets, it'll be $300. We'll call it the Summerslam Deal. Note the measurements, they should all be suitable for wear by one person, though fits will vary slightly. Ultra-gorgeous lightweight wool Gieves & Hawkes tan jacket, 40R. This thing is beautiful. Photos do not do it justice. $200. Measurements: 21" pit to pit, just under 18" across the shoulders, 32" total length. Emporio Armani linen blend jacket EU48 $80. Measurements: 21" pit to pit, 18.5" across the shoulders, 31" total length. J. Crew cotton jacket, sz S. Great for summer and as a knockaround travel jacket. Functional sleeve buttons, beautiful striped body lining. $45. Measurements: 20" pit to pit, 18" across the shoulders, 31.5" total length. Awesome RL Polo cotton jacket, sz. XL. You know you love the staging here! This gentleman is ready for a day out. Note that his pants are already off (mannequin has a big ass, is fussy)! $50. Buy this in combination with some other summery stuff and we might be able to work out a deal. Measurements: 24" pit to pit/20" back of the shoulders/33" total length/25.5" top of shoulder seam to sleeve's end. Thoroughly awesome textured blue Zegna jacket with patch pockets. EU48. This one's great and incredibly distinctive. $100. Amazing camelhair Zegna db, sweet patch pockets. EU50. $80. Measurements: underarm-to-underarm 22", shoulders 19.5", total length 30.5", sleeve 23". Zegna double breasted, awesome stitching. EU48. Worsted Super 100s. $70. Banana Republic, 44L. $30. Amazing bespoke country jacket from forgotten clothier. I adore this thing. Sorry the fit's a bit odd on the mannequin. $90. Measurements: 21" pit to pit, 18" back of shoulders, just shy of 30" total length. Unusual odd jacket with narrow lapels, belted in the rear, leather accents. This would make some seriously crucial streetwear. Forgive the conservative staging, didn't feel like swapping out the thick Zegna for a narrower tie. $50. Measurements: 20.5" pit to pit, 18" across shoulders, 30" length. Classic navy Brooks Bros. blazer. 41R. $40. Grey Canali, EU56L. Bemberg lining. $60. Unconstructed seersucker by Basso, bought at a sample sale a long time ago, worn once or twice. It's a bit rumpled here, I'll see to it that that's fixed prior to shipment. Fits like a 38. $30. So, who's got balls? This is vintage Merc. If you don't know what that means, then you're probably not interested anyway. Made in England, tagged size 40. Movie star-grade cocaine not included. $40. SHIRTS Sorry about the visible hangers, etc. in some of these -- bear in mind I am not setting this up like eBay with elaborate staging, etc. for the most part, so this may seem a bit transparent. Those shirts are hanging on a rack to my left. You can see it in at least one photo of me. Apologies if that's unromantic. Luigi Borrelli for Bergdorf Goodman, beautiful stitching and buttons, you know the drill. 15.5-39.$85. White/blue checked Brooks Bros. shirt, sz M. $18. Gorgeous multi-stripe Tailorbyrd shirt, sz M.

See the photo below. If you know what it is, by all means let us know) $25.
