I do remember that and the fit pic, I think I actually inquired about it. smile.gif

I guess it's an orphan and I searched everywhere for the pants :(

Yesterday the contrary happened with some Valentino tuxedo pants AHAH. Some doorknob is showing off its Valentino tuxedo without the pants... Woot!

Gents, for those of you who are going to Japan soon and are going to visit Tokyo, I just wanted to say, this was the Tokyo I wanted to see and not that touristy crap we went through...But I guess the touristy crap does have it's appeal but do yourselves a favor, try to look this stuff up! Enjoy.

Been busy, but took these pics before I had to tear my office apart to have new floors put in.

All NA

Top left Massimo Dutti, Desigual, Versace Tie, new BB linen

Top Right, RG, Boss Orange, Banana Republic made in the USA work shirt that I found interesting

Cheaney, these are very cool, for looking straight out of the 60s (I can picture the Beatles wearing these) they are in amazing shape.

That's nice. (Click to show)
I like it when I find my comps near the top of the pile for items sold HERE  I just noticed, this guy is a little generous with his "LKNW" descriptions.  LIKE THIS <== "worn twice" [each time for 100 mile death walks] or maybe "worn twice" [dragged behind car once]  sorry if I'm ribbing someone here :)

Sometimes when I've been drinking, I'll grab peoples listings like that and send questions on about 5 different items asking things like "I notice you have 128 pairs of shoes listing, all detailing how many times they were worn.  Do you diligently keep track of how many times you wear each shoe? Do you track it in excel or some other program?  Also, I notice of those 128 you have appx 18 different sizes listed, so I assume you are tracking this for your entire extended family as well?  Is you family very well off that they can afford to buy new shoes after only wearing each 2-3x?  Where are you located? From the looks of things, your family must be into the urban hiking trend as for only being worn twice, these shoes appear to have taken a 1000 mile trek thru an asphalt jungle.  I'm very interested in these...thanks!"

Definitely worn twice. You can tell by the amount of creasing and the giant scrape.

This is what I do. I ask my local Goodwill for their donors list. I google the names, being sure to find the wealthiest donors. Then I find their addresses and follow them around, counting how many times and on what days they wear they wore particular items. It makes the eBay listing process easier.
