i don't understand this thread. everyone complains about the cat being let out of the bag, yet you guys continue to post here to brag about all the high-end stuff you found for a few dollars. if you want something to remain a secret, KEEP IT A SECRET.

Found a recent nice beige glen plaid BBGF 3 roll 1, which is quite interesting.

+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. shog[1].gif Still, 60 bucks shipped... I was happy. wink.gif


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. lol8[1].gif 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.

Meh... I bought a Brooks Brothers suit there last week... Not a bad price, but not as cheap as thrifting. Shipping and handling alone were almost as much as I pay for things in local thrifts.

Picked up a bag of ties a few months ago and just started going through them. They are too slim for me, around 3 inches, making them available.
WGP-will send PM asap.

Yeah... I really know better... but I don't know which thread to post this in:

 

Can anyone recommend a cheap mannequin, or better yet, sell me one.  I need to start flipping stuff to break even, and B&S is not cutting it.

Yeah, I'd like to find one myself if anyone has recommendations

This is the one I got: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270689342977?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_745wt_1156, which I think is relatively reasonable.

I'll try to when I get home from work tonight.  It really is interesting though...i didn't even realize there was a top button when I first saw it because the natural roll is so dramatic that it rolls back the top 2.

I've seen a seller on etsy who models men's clothing on herself. I think plenty of buyers would rather see that anyway.

Helps if she's cute.

I thought it fit me well enough when I tried it on, but when I got home it looks too big, so its available if anyone wants it.

I found that exact jacket as part of a suit aboit a year ago. Same size, longer sleeves but hadn't been worn. Still sitting in my closet just waiting for me to rock it to work or sell it to Spoo.

You may have already tried this, but they pop up on Craigslist from time to time.

Exactly my point...one of us was probably bidding against you, and now we will have more bidders to fend off now that others know frown.gif

I use this.  WHITE MANNEQUIN TORSO FORM - GREAT DISPLAY FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM T-SHIRTS

 It was super cheap, but does the trick. It can be hung from the hanger or mounted on a stand (not included). It is flat on the back so it hangs against the wall nicely. The seller also has full manneqins.

First pair of AE's hahaha.  For 10 bucks? Why not? ;D
