Maybe he is just frugal. Nothing wrong with that. I once sold a pair of used chelsea boots to a famous musician who could surely afford to buy new.
Yes, they are.
And Ive noted your dibs requests on the Billy Reid should it not work out.
Re: Zegna PJs - I was skeptical at first. But they were comfy, so I decided to go with it anyway. I did a little research online, and I've seen a couple of places that have them (someone at A Suitable Wardrobe mentioned them some time ago). Again, I'll try and post some pics. They better be real, otherwise the thrifting gods are just playing with me. To wit, earlier this week, I saw my first zegna suit. Now, I normally don't buy to try and resell, so I left it be at first, because it wasn't my size/style. But then I thought, what they hell, sell it low and make a profit. This thought occurred to me about 1 minute after picking up the suit and setting it back on the rack. In between that time, some guy had already nabbed it ( ). He looked like he was doing some serious thrifting, so I thought, well he bested me. I walked past him later as he was checking out the suit for problems, and I asked him if it was in good condition. His response: "Why, is it a good suit?" ( ). Follow-up question: "What about this one I found?" (pulls up a zegna odd jacket that - drumroll please - looks exactly my size) ( ).
@caseyfud: Thanks! I've been looking for one for a long time. On my budget, I can't really justify buying one new, but this was $3. Love the french press.

@MattR. Welcome to the world of thrifting. I swear it's swallowed me whole. This morning I stopped at a thrift on the way to work. I had $30 cash in my pocket, and I promised myself that I wouldn't break out the credit card. I picked up three T. Pink shirts and an absolutely mint condition, fully canvassed Samuelsohn wool-cashmere SC, all for $20. I'm actually wearing the Samuelsohn right now.
If you're going to buy to flip, make sure that you buy well. Most thrifts have the worst lighting, and some clothes have the most vile, hidden stains.
I promised myself I'd stop doing this. Get this shiz out of my house, peoples! Bill's M2s, size 40. Robert Graham 'restaurant shirt', XL/XXL.

(Vintage?) Polo linen. Bright, summery, and so sweet.
Also, can I get some straight up, Man of Lint -style truth talk on this one? What say you -- as a beater jacket, yay or nay?

Looks sleek from the side. From the front, possibly it emphasizes my shortness and fatness.
