I'm pretty sure you aren't but they of course need to find the listing first to take it down.... when there were gay men using ebay as essentially their own version of those Chinese vending machines except making like 400 bucks on a pair of old socks, eBay stepped in and changed what is allowed and not and I think anything worn skin to skin beneath the belt didn't make the cut....maybe I'm wrong here...

you are allowed to sell pre-owned mens swimwear on ebay.

No cashmere left behind? Available. 

 

 

Finally had a decent little tie haul:

 

 

For some reason, these random shop ties always feel so well made. 

 

 

I LOVE this one. Would this be ancient madder? 

 

 

 

 

 

This Polo tie is by far better constructed, better feeling, and lays better than the two Riccis above. IDK what is is about it but this tie but it is very well made for RLBL. Can I assume all made in Italy ones are as such. The color, pattern, weight, it's all there for me. 

 

 

Everything checks out for me on this one. For $2, why not?

 

 

1. Hermes real

2. Shop ties feel well made because they usually are contracted to a company that makes a very solid product. When classic menswear stores put their names on certain things like blazers, suits, or ties, they will be manufactured by a company that they deem is worthy of their name and doesn't kill the budget.

3. That Talbott is made of Italian sourced hand printed silk, thus it cannot be AUTHENTIC Ancient Madder. However, that shit would pass the Pepsi challenge with damn near anybody, and can definitely be called ancient madder in my book. 

4. Yes you are correct, Polo ties from Italy are actually great pieces of neckwear for the cost especially. However it's far more new than those 20+ year old Riccis, thus less wear and strain on the extremely fragile silk they are made of.

 

5. That Burberry is a thing for sure, licensed or not, it's either Aran knit or Cable knit, excellent piece of knitwear right there.

 

6. The next one is nearly opposite. Definitely leave cashmere behind, quality can differ just as much as sheep's wool, this rule will only cost money.

So it just is pre-owned underwear you aren't allowed to sell? Well the logic isn't there but it's eBay, I guess it rarely is.

Yesterday, grass cut, salmon in the smoker, got no lemons. Go to the market that has the GW 2 doors down. Right on the end of the SC aisle sits this beauty and from the thread, label makers, looks a lot like "sartoria partenopea". Felamm SPA is the parent co? Please corroborate those that know.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


and its my size right down to the surgeons cuff.....left the lemons at the counter I was so excited.

Anytime....and yea that sweater will definitely get the job done, and unlike the Jcrew that is a goner in a few months, that thing won't pill for years.

One of the more rare finds there is, Sartoria Partenopea mainline makes some of the best RTW suiting in the world. Partenopea remains a favorite of mine, up their quality wise with RTW Kiton, Chester Barrie, and the Caruso production quality level that makes the newer Lanvin suits, which is easily one of the finest suits I've ever owned.....essentially, not their newest offering, however regardless, that thing is a beauty and a rare find, congrats, wear in good health.

The bottoms look like fake Retro Re-Issues of the 3's so I'd pass and the top ones aren't even part of the Jordan lineup so if they aren't numbered, little demand there.
