I found a real nice Burberry blazer once (excellent condition) and left it because it was too small. now I will just buy it and see if someone wants it here.

My thrift stores are terrible. I'm a 38R

Nice find. If the tie is not dirty, don't dry clean it.

Ok, I wont, I steamed it out last night to remove the excess wrinkles from the knot sections, man to own your first 7 fold and its from a thrift store, (priceless) thanks guys.

^Yes, steaming is the right answer. Dry cleaning ties means almost certain death for them. If you're worried about germs, etc., steam will take care of them.

No, mostly big sizes, the Brioni are US 50L. Yes, they will be going to Ebay. All too big for me.

I'll stop by my store tomorrow evening and report what I find. If anyone wants anything I'll buy it on Friday if it's still there :-)

used brooks brothers are a hard sell. I've tried. They might go for $10 or $15 if you are lucky. If you are paying $1.99 or something, it might be worth it in volume. My thrift shop usually prices shirts at 3.99 or 4.99, so I leave many a BB behind.
post #1317 of 125147
^Yes, generally with Brooks shirts I just pass them by unless they're in my size. I like them fine, generally, but there's not much market for them. BB Ties will sell okay, suits and sportcoats relatively well.

Is this true? I have much to learn. I pass over tons of BB suits and ties regularly just because there are so many of them.

Picked up a couple of items recently. A pair of scotch grain long wings with double oak soles. They are storm welted, in very nice shape and very well built (they weigh a ton) but I can't make out the name from the inside of the shoe. Fre...something...followed by Bootsomething. Anyone have any ideas. Also, a Robert Talbott repp tie in burgundy and white. Very nice shape.

Yeah, they don't seem to go for much. Too bad because BB shirts are actually very nice in my opinion. The "non-iron" ones do all right if they are in traditional colors.

French Shriner perhaps.

They were decent shoes way back in the day.

And I think there was also a brand called Freeman which I don't know much about.
