My wife would go crazy for that Kitchenaid! She's been pestering me about a bright pink one at Williams Sonoma for about the last year. She has a perfectly good serviceable (and pretty new too, maybe 3 years old) white one. Maybe women collect these things as we do suits and shoes? laugh.gif In any case, this is a perfect example to always check the housewares. The Accolade is the upper model too. Score!!
Those Kenwoods are beauties, too. wink.gif

LOL bright pink... a pink one of those sold for $200 on ebay recently. Sell your white one and you'd probably make enough to do the swap, if you're patient for a pink one.

My only disappointment about the mixer is the Accolade is discontinued - they went to a "Professional 5 Plus" or something. Apparently this model is still well regarded, though. Really need to pin my wife down on whether she wants to keep it or not!

Maybe you'll get to admire those beauties for yourself soon! wink.gif

Oh, also:
ANYONE IN COLUMBUS this Saturday the 28th, jkidd and I are hoping to meet up to hit a store or two and maybe get a drink and chat - anyone in the area who's interested, feel free to PM either of us!

It was a tie day for me. I haven't found much to brag about over the past couple of weeks. Appologies for the washed out photos.
L to R
Gitman Bros wool, Massimo Bizzochi, Canali, Faconnable. All are available since require XLong ties.

Oh and a nice Harris Tweed jacket I still need to measure.

dibs if Brian passes

also, you're missing out without a wife (or soon-to-be wife as the case may be). The quality of foods consumed typically goes up exponentially (beef-a-roni vs. well, food). Although, you might be able to thrift one in russia

I was walking through a GW last week and glanced down at the pile of TV remotes and there was a barely used Toshiba remote that was the same one I had, but mine was broken, $2.99 and it works like a charm.....

I think I did fairly well... Been thrifting a few times for fun but finally feel I actually snagged a few nice things.

Also not shown 2 cheap pairs of Levis Im keeping.

Brioni 100% Linen Shirt 25" P2P(To Flip)

20120123_143237.jpg

PRL 100% Cashmere Black V Neck sweater (May keep need to try it on)

20120123_143247.jpg

Hickey Freeman 48L Madion Sport Coat or orphaned jacket (Can't tell) beautiful condition with a recent silver label in a nice silk/wool blend (To Flip)

20120123_143225.jpg

And finally an LL Bean Barn coat canvas I think, removable lining Mens small but fits like a trim Medium (fits me too, keeping it)

^ Those all look great. Love the pattern on the Brioni. If you get rid of the PRL, it should give you a pretty good amount if you're using ebay.

Whenever I mix anything my wife is inspecting the machine moments after I am done using it. If I leave any mess on it, man do I hear about it laugh.gif

Great find, a color like that should sell well.

Trying so hard not to be tempted by that Brioni shirt and HF jacket... if that jacket had patch pockets, or if I hadn't just gotten several new jackets... wink.gif

LOL you never know what you'll turn up on the thrift thread!

BTW whoever was looking and asking about Edwin Nazario - that's made by Caruso, 100%. It's a brand made for one of the Canadian stores - Harry's or Holt's - I don't remember which, but I looked into it pretty extensively. I found a super 150's sc from them awhile back, it was really something. What saddened me is that there was a SUIT that I left and was gone the next day when I went back. frown.gif
