It's a puffer Coat, really nice pretty mint. Now the interesting thing is they priced it so low I almost shit myself when I saw it, and right next to it was some Zara coat for $90. 

This is the one conversation that made me sweat on my way home yesterday, I have picked up Row pieces before and know their glory in fact one of my goals is to thrift one that fits (eBay wouldn't bring the same pleasure) but yesterday I walked into one of my usual spots and what do I see a Henry Poole SC naturally I picked it up, the thing was $10 for some reason I left it because the lining was loose on the armpit, (didn't look through eBay completed listing since I only do that when I am really unsure.) I just had someone create a shit storm over a similar issue on the bay and so cognitive bias was at work there. Anyway hopefully @hooker4186
 or another SF guy picked it up.

Can't believe you left Henry Poole for $10. Do you have anyone close by who you could ask to repeatedly slap you around the face?

I think so, I will have to check if they are willing. Dude this rarely happens, but when I saw the lining I just gaffed. I promise you the next time I see one I'll get it and post :cheers:

You're a fool! But if there's a next time and it's 38/40 chest I'll buy it straight up.

some meat still left on the bone, especially on the Brioni lot, for someone like @SpooPoker

Very true. Im drowning in ties as it is and hate leaving money on the table but someone should definitely pick that up.

PSA from the eBay thread. For those of you who have eBay stores you get a $25 credit each quarter to order eBay branded shipping supplies (I think the tape is the most popular one 12 rolls). Some use them some don't but FREE.

 

Today is the last day of the quarter, so order today... http://www.sd.ebay.com/subscriberdiscounts/viewOffer/Q3Basic?rmvSB=true

 

ETA: I should give credit to @GetBlatzed for reminding us on the eBay thread and @My Main Man for the direct link. I ordered them last quarter but would have forgot today...

 

Also fun for the MN crowd, from the why do I pick this stuff up file:

 

Almost vintage Best 50/50 blend Made in the USA . LOL.

Anyone want this for cost + shipping? 

 

Tagged 54R so probably a 42R or 44R. Dual vent, unlined, patch pockets. Niggle on shoulder in close-up pic is the only issue I see.

Who leaves a Henry Poole SC for $10?!

If that was 38/40 I will cry.

How does this even happen?? HOW?

What'd we learn here today, kiddos? Lessons here are that 1) quality can't be replicated, 2) most things can be fixed, and 3) some fixes are easier than others. Linings are a pretty easy fix.

Whats this all about? Picked it up and it ended up selling for $314 with a frenzy of bidding. Did I stumble across some magical item?
