Is there anything better than getting paid to go to work and on your lunch hour making bit extra with thrift store trading.

I don't think anyone here would be a fit for the item as they seem to be around a size 50, if anyone is interested I would let them go for a hundred each.

thanks.

I'll give you $10 for the lot, incl. postage. thanks

I feel that's too much for the item, so I'll offer $8 and $2 postage.

Bit out of my reach, can you come down on price? Otherwise I'll see if I can borrow some money from my mum tonight.

PS I know a guy called "marbles" becase he can talk, well, with a mouth full of them. Sure this doesn't apply to you though ;-()

Hi PoP,

 

Went and picked them up from DHL directly today - turns out they attempted delivery yesterday, despite what the tracking system and customer service told me, when I rang today was advised they were at the depot. Took longer to get from Fyshwick to my hands (20k's tops) than they did from Heathrow to Sydney ffffuuuu.gif

 

I got the Perth in Cocoa Suede and Legate in Black Calf, both UK 10F. Progress report will be forthcoming next week fistbump.gif

Haha i love it how people spot a Borelli or Brioni label and automatically assume its quality.

Otherwise "Time Masters" on castlereigh

Pictures of ur JLC's pls icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifI have some weird obsession for them....maybe because I will probably never afford one baldy[1].gif

EDIT:

Anyone see this on Die Workwear? Bench&Loom, they have some good shit! I'm looking at this Henley (always wanted a civil war looking one)

The Perth in suede would be a lovely shoe. And the Legate is a solid business choice. Congrats and look forward to your report!

I don't have any preference really, they all have there advantages depending on what you like. From a design perspective, woven give you more to play within terms of patterns etc, which the majority of the tie buying public like. Printed silk make up a tiny percentage of ties sold throughout the world really, and need a much tighter knot to stay in place but can be very beautiful, some of the prints around just can't be replicated with weaving. I've got a couple of really nice ones on the way in about a month, I'll see if I can dig out some swatch images when I'm in front of the pc later.

Solid silk ties (which are still technically woven, but I know what you mean) are ideal if you like to wear patterned shirts and suits and your right they do for whatever reason tend to dimple nicer, being a smoother weave I guess.

But theres no right or wrong with either, just what you prefer which you can only find out by trial and error. Everyone has different tastes and everyone ties knots differently, even if it's the same knot.

This is what all the cool kids will be wearing on Monday morning (well the left one at least).

You're the idiot for trying to push some crap you bought in a Thrift Store for profit here.
