Just for future reference, as opposed to not being helpful: the creasing gives it away as not being shell. Shell doesn't crease like that, it rolls. 

 

 

Like so.

Basically I found some guys donated collection of 1971 Topps NFL cards, might be a complete set.... Still dont know yet. Cost me $10 total. 4 Unitas, 3 Terry Bradshaw Rookies, a couple Parish and Lanier, and there are probably so much that I didnt even recognize. I would guess there are 200 cards.

Hope you got Bradshaw in mint condition... Those can be worth serious money if grade 8+.

Picked up what I believe to be a Brioni suit and a sportcoat today. Only thing is - I don't see the Brioni logo anywhere on it. All I see is the telltale size/name/date/ref tag.


Did Brioni ever make stealth suits? More pics to come tomorrow when it's light enough to take pics.

Fantastic price for personal use. However you'd be looking at quite a bit of money for amplification worthy of those speakers. That combo was certainly used as a home theatre set up. Dynaudio's sound signature is pretty neutral, natural. Tight bass with a presence, but not overemphasized and definitely not boomy. But sound is subjective. I've thrifted so many expensive sets of speakers that were raved about that I didn't care for at all.

Flipping will be a serious pain in the ass with shipping. Condition is really important, too. Maybe buy the set and sell the smaller set and center channel to pay for the deal and invest in a good quality integrated amp and CD player or turntable, depending on your preference.

The 'Bay says yes, but I personally don't know a ton about the brand and that's just one listing. Maybe not worth the hassle for flipping but if you wanted them for yourself might be worth a shot.

Flipping speakers is a pain, especially large ones.

Swung by a couple stores on my way home from work this evening, grabbed a few goodies. 

 

Orvis fishing vest, vintage? Don't know the era they made them button up instead of zippers. Appears unused.

 

 

Orvis, Ted Baker Archive, Hickey Freeman elbow patch shirts x2, Lacoste. Pretty sure they're all NWOT besides light wear on HFs.

 

Ted Baker 100% Wool pants with nice pockets. Not sure what the technical term is for this style of pant.

 

 

RRL Japanese Selvedge beauty, appear to be NWOT.

 

 

 

AE Wendell size 12, sadly way too big for my feet. Do the marking indicate EE width? A bit confused on the markings on these ones. I seem to be able to find AE all the time, but I really want to find some Alden next. But my grail shoes are Lobb or EG.

Also a few more decent scarves.

I still think Antonio is trying to push Eidos as a non diffusion line. The truth of the matter is he's full of it in my opinion. It's still manufactured under Michelangelo wich "IS" a division of isaia napoli. When the brand first launched it was trying to bring the look of a mix of boglioli with his colors and cuts. This is what he said back in 2013 for his lapel pins "Right now, it's like a blue version of Isaia's red coral pin". Sounds to me like a diffusion line that's not trying to be a diffusion line. His sport coats are now reaching the $1000 to $1500 mark. Im not going to pay that for a Michelangelo piece. You can get two or three boglioli pieces for that.Or if you shopped right a whole closet full of brooks brothers by the same tailors. That's not what he originally said he wanted the price points to be at years ago.He said he wanted build a line the average youngster could afford and move into a isaia client as he aged. He's trying to build another brand on the back of isaia and to me that's a diffusion line. I will not touch any of his pieces I'll spend the coin and buy isaia. I think he's been misleading people into the brand in my opinion. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I had this exact item and tried to sell it. Buyer received the item and said it was not a true Brioni, even though everything matched up. Ebay sided with the buyer (surprise, surprise). Got the item back and immediately sent to Spoo. I think he got double what I previously got. When in doubt, trust in da Spoo. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

12 3E, so 12EEE. If you sell them I would recommend putting both in the title.

A tip if you run into something like that again in the future, go to your tailor and have him document on his own letter head that the garment is an official authentic piece. I've gotten out of a few paypal claims and shit by just having my tailor write whatever I tell him to write on his own letter head and then scan and email that shit to paypal or eBay. That shit usually ends the claim within a day.
