I would've bought most of those (at least the blue and grays). you will make a modest profit on ebay or in B&S.

Etro Cotton tie. As I said earlier, one of the most understated things I've ever seen from Etro.

Should I paypal you now or in the morning?

Astor and black in no good by SF standards, but there is probably profit to be made on ebay.  I would do a little investigating on ebay beforehand though.

Almost always on scarves.

Sulka made by Brioni sc-functional button holes, condition is so so, good kick around jacket. 2 broken buttons on the sleeves, a few small fabric issues. Its a black and white houndstooth with a blue grid pattern, super tasteful. Unvented. 56 Euro 46 US, R.
Pants: All are 36-38 inch waists, 32 inseam. I can do pics and measure if you are interested.
Bamford and Sons grey flannel flat front-wool and cashmere-not sure what to say except these are holy grail pants.
Pal Zileri-Flat front blue flannel, I think these were MTM as the construction are superior to the Zileri pants I have from suits.
Oxxford-pleated blue flannel, these have the new diamond patterned interior fabric....these are amazing.
2 pair of Brioni moleskin flat fronts-brown and kakhi-super soft and heavy weight bad ass.
1 pair of cream bespoke pants, most handwork I have ever seen in a pair of pants, side adjusters, every possible tacking and seam are handswen.
Ties:
Hermes-blue and green subtle pattern, really lovely and not fake
RL Purple label-first time ever seeing one of these, its a greek key pattern in grey and purple, looks unworn.
Mark Shale yellow grenadine-a classic and amazing hand
Turnbull and Asser US and GB flag tie!-this thing is crazy, green field, with american and british flags on it
Robert Talbot BofC patchwork tie-I think Alan had one of these, they are cool, in burgundy and navy
2 awesome polo ties-usual awesome patterns.
2 Italian label ties I have never heard of, but the construction was fantastic and the patterns were super
Zegna zip up cardigan with leather patchs on elbows
Pretty much all up for sale or trade.


Jeez, that's an insane haul! Nice to hear you finally got there at the right time! Interested in the Brioni moleskins if they're not claimed already.

Hit like 7 thrifts today and came out empty-handed plain.gif Wonder what's goin' on....
