Orphan. Actually, the tag does tell you with that "W34".

A used d3100 body can run you less than 200. A cropped sensor with a 35mm need about 5-6 feet of space for a regular sized jacket to fit into a frame and it's unlikely that you'll run into wider prime lenses within the lower price bracket.

My main point was that there's no reason to spend more on a camera body than a lens, particularly if you're just doing eBay photography.

Back in the game, at least casually.

Zegna made in Italy, Trafalfar limited edition (my favorite fodder), plus bonus minty BB braces.

Would pants also be Zegna? I found Reda 100 Baumler pants that match in colour pattern?

I've been out of the sneaker game for a minute, but I seem to remember Jordan's having a non-removable insole? Any confirmation from an actual sneakerhead?

Also a tip: most of the fakes I've seen over the years had a rock-hard rubber sole, whereas most of the legit Jordan's/Nike SB/etc sneakers I've handled had more of a "gummy" (for lack of a better word) and flexible rubber sole.

Sigh. Not same colour. Store lighting throwing my eyes off. I guess it stays here then.

Telling by simply touching or feel is not really very bulletproof these days. Fakes quality are increasing/the real ones quality are decreasing, so the fool proof methods are strictly check the reference code on the size label, or any of the often seen mistakes/errors of the particular model in question by the counterfeiters, or obviously anything just off in general that is just plain obvious.

Stoked that the gift exchange is happening again! Here are some hits from the last week or so. NA, sorry dudes!

 

Drake's for James Purdey 

 

 

THE absolute Rolex reference book to have. Was planning to pick this up years back at full price, but totally forgot about it.

 

 

I've been keeping an eye out for an Breitling RCAF chrono for a while now, so this is fitting.

 

 

Unfortunately, no watches to be found..

 

 

Tumi wallet

 

 

Case only.

 

 

Axel Foley would be proud.

 

 

Forgot who found one of these recently! $50 and absolutely no signs of wear.

 

 

 

 

 

Reversible Rugby.

 

 

CK Jeans throwback.

 

 

"You're not really gonna go to California, are you?" 

Micro hole in one spot, but otherwise minty.

 

 

 

Varvatos Italy

 

 

Lo Sport

 

 

TF Onyx.

 

 

Must de Cartier Vendome 14kt plated. I've popped Cartier once last year and twice in 2016, so I'm hopeful the pattern continues.

 

 

 

 

 

Wish this fit me, damn.

 

 

 

 

Thrift funded a new suit. 50% off with 15% on top doesn't hurt, either! Absolutely cannot wait to take it out for a spin.

Looking for a little thread expertise please. Just got this ethrift sweater. Sold as a cucineli but with no neck tag.


It is a beautiful and thick cashmere sweater and if is cuci, a very good deal.
Seller made it clear he would take it back if I had an issue.
Thoughts? Thank you

That was me with the Jiffy steamer. You won't regret it. I'm a little jealous that you got the metal head, plus all the works. Don't burn yourself though! I wear work gloves when I use mine. Not joking.
