Following up on what Spoo said- that's not a typo on the label, Holland and Sherry makes cloths, not clothes. Anything with Holland and Sherry cloth will be made by someone else, most commonly Tom James. I learned this lesson the hard way a few weeks ago myself.

 

Good to know, thanks. Still a nice suit in really great shape, though, tailored in the USA. I'll survive!

Was packing for a trip and ended up cleaning out the closet of stuff I shrunk out of....again.

 

 All thrifted, of course. Sad to see so many of my favorites leaving, but they will convert nicely into my trip cash.

 

Polo Cotton 3 Patch

 

 

 

 

Polo Wool 3 Patch

 

 

 

 

FU

 

 

 

 

Basketweave Cashmere

 

 

 

 

BB Unmarked cashmere

 

 

 

 

HF Cashmere

 

 

 

 

Kiton Cash/linen

 

 

 

 

Sammy Linen Blend, 3 patch

 

 

 

 

Unbranded Cashmere Weave with MOPs

 

 

 

 

 

And this thrifted Saturday - Pop!

What you need to learn first is who to ask advice from and who not to. Some people love to help, others just love to talk down to others....

But for real, best advice is to read these threads and just get familiar with tags you see. Ebay sold listing give you a good idea of demand as well.

Confucius say :

buy records like nataku
buy teak like frenchy
buy artwork like mr moo and 330ck
buy stuff that fits you like eazye
complain about UK selection like purple label
make your mannequins look like wes
make the face leisurewear made when he found kiton
be as helpful as 1ofthecoolkids
post insight to a far away land like thriftvader
e-thrift like cj52racers and kbadgley84
buy hawaiian shirts like fueco
never post bare feet
be as witty as drlivingston
buy sneakers like bahjls
buy vintage like playdice

a dated gucci (with dated styling that will never return) and a hole in the sleeve? and possible orphan to boot? 

 

trust your first instincts amigo. sell don't buy. 

Just sold a set of Gucci embossed horn buttons from a moth eaten suit for $50, so if it's damaged and you can talk them down to cheap, 3 big and at least 8 small buttons is a decent set.

Learn to read .I gave him advice ,twice.then he started resisting and bitching because he couldn't wrap his head around it.
And in fact he called me a name not the other way around.
So why don't YOU mind ur own fucking business and stop acting like ur shit don't stink.
Better yet post a find once in ur life instead of bitching and complaining .
