+1 - same here. I think the only things I've bought from B&S since the switchover was a tie off Spoo - and I only looked at his listings because he was interested in a tie I had.
BTW, about shopgw - it's been mentioned before. There are definitely lots of flippers who camp it out. The only thing that saves it is that saved searches are limited, and they expire... and occasionally something slips through, like the Isaia I saw once in a batch of crap ties, with the name misspelled in the auction description. Needless to say, multiple people spotted it and tried to snipe, and it ended up going for like 50 bucks - more than the tie was probably worth.
My one score from there was a NWOT recent Zegna tuxedo - still hanging in my closet, never worn.
Still, 60 bucks shipped... I was happy.
Oh, and I haven't been out much... hitting my regular two-three stores a day but not really finding anything. Did go back to the half-off-sale-day on Wednesday and found the sweaters still there that I left last weekend. Not quite up to the baller level lately, but I wanted to show you guys the Iceberg sweater because it's awesome.
If anyone's interested in the Iceberg let me know, it's Made in Italy tagged XXXl but I'd say it fits more XL-XXL, it's just chunky. Kinda want to keep it though, it might make an awesome sweater to wear with jeans and watch football or something. Anyone seen one of these before?
The two cashmere sweaters: Lyle & Scott made in Scotland, approx. L-XL, J. Crew size L. Both available.Edited by TheWGP - 1/27/12 at 10:50am
