Just one clothing find for me today: a black watch Purple Label shirt, in time for the holidays.

Found some jazz albums too, including an original issue Blue Note ("The Eminent Jay Jay Johnson"; not sure if it's worth anything but I'm liking it) and a great Charlie Byrd bossa nova album.

^^ Beautiful shirt!

Score on the Eminent Jay Jay Johnson LP!!

Most OG pressing Blue Note LPs are worth something. Looks like this is an easy $200+ album. Nice score!

A good online reference for record values is Popsike. They catalog most eBay record auctions (description, pics, date and price) ending at over $30. Goes back to 2005-ish.

First up, I found an almost mint Kiton, 100% cashmere, in a big boy size (~50!). the only issue with the jacket is that there is a hole near the second button. Since it was damaged, I got it for a whopping .75 cents. No idea what I'm going to do with it (might look into re-weaving, but not sure). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Next, I found this nice Brioni blazer. 38R, has surgeon's cuffs, etc. Nice piece, overall. Wish it fit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Third, I found some Versace Jeans Couture. No idea if these things are real or not; my suspicion is that they are (Medusa heads all over the place, authenticity label, etc...but Versace ain't my thing). Look at the fabric label! Haha. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Fourth, couple Zegnas made with very nice fabric (XL & XXL) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Finally, I picked up this John W. Nordstrom cashmere/wool jacket. Normally I pass on this brand, but the jacket's color is really phenomenal. Fabric is by Zegna. IIRC, measures to a 40R. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Oh, and those jeans look like the real deal to me.

Nah..standard issue 356/beetle model, but should be easy to flip since I'm in So Cal.

If anyone is interested: Saks in Prudential Center in Boston has a button down shirt by Brunello Cucinelli (pink gingham) for around $120 ($200 with 40% off on top of that). Size is XXL. Original price was something around $450. This is not as ultra discounted as some other people's findings, but I thought someone might want it.

Thanks for the tip! That site looks like a terrific reference, and I'll definitely bookmark it. I'll probably just keep the album since I don't know enough about vinyl to grade its condition accurately for an eBay auction.

By the way Nataku: I was looking at your eBay auctions and it looks like you accidentally listed an outsole measurement for the Nakamichi stereo smile.gif

Most people who know about stereos know that outsole measurement is not an accurate predictor of fit. But people ask for the measurement anyway.
