That is exactly what I would have suggested.

I most certainly pay taxes. ffffuuuu.gif

Listen up:
I think you grossly overestimated the price of that Tom Ford jacket. Even though NWT, I cannot see a single person that would go in for $2K for it, not when it is a solid colored nailhead, three button, etc. It could possibly be a jacket missing pants, and if it is an SC, I cant see how it could move at that price (not when this piece is quite un Tom Ford like and thus lacking any distinguishing stylistic features / patterns that would make it a must own accessory).
BIN should be set to $1K, allow offer price, and take anything within a stones throw of $700. I personally would think if listed for a month, the mean offer would be $450 and a few people willing to pay perhaps $600 or so. I may be wrong, but a fairly standard pattern and style would likely appeal most to those who want to have a Tom Ford but cannot afford the bidding war that ensues with hot design features or patterns.
Not attacking you buddy, at the end of the day, an item is worth what someone is willing to pay. I would love it if you sold it for $2K, but my head says $700 would be pretty much an upper limit. If this was a more recent two button piece with a bold guncheck, windowpane or some plaid, it would likely be worth a great deal more.
If my information to DM7 is bullshit, please feel free to correct me. I am talking from gut instinct rather than pure experience. Would like to see Spoo's or Eddieveddr's two cents since they know Tom Ford and their values better than most.

Im not answering until you answer me about your brothers TF and Hermes he is going to sell me smile.gif

But that SC, since you asked, is way overpriced at $2K. I don't know what he paid for it, but a BIN at $675 would move it in one day, a BIN/OBO at $985 would move it in less than a week, IMO. Check my auctions - Ive got a true TF SC up now, while totally different, keep an eye on it and see how that ends for a general idea.

We have some bike people in this thread. I need some assistance. 

 

The lady at the garage sale wanted $60. Is this worth $60? A quick google search shows that some of the newer versions of this sell for up to $800 but I don't have a clue how old this is. She said it's been through about a year of college but has remained in the garage ever since. Also, this is for riding, not flipping.

Eh... That's old. About late 80s or early 90s. If it still has the original parts, the cables are likely stretched so the derailleur probably won't shift all too well, and the brakes might not work too well. Buying an old bike is tough if you don't know what to look for.

But, on the other hand, it's difficult to find a rideable bike for $60. I'd try to talk her down to around $40 range if everything seems to work alright when you ride it. Keep in mind, bike repairs can get pretty expensive.

Comrades!,
Today I found a button-up Kiton casual shirt, a beautiful white Luciano Barbera shirt with baby-blue butcher stripes, a pair of Cotton-and-Cashmere (!) Incotex Moleskins 32.5"X33(+2.25)":
467,
a bouquet of three spread-and-contrast-collar stripey shirts in 16.5"x35": an RLPL with thick blueish stripes, a BB with horizontal red pencil stripes, and a RLBL with baby-blue stripes, a pair of beautifully constructed grandpa-trad Andover-shop trous, and these fuck-you wide-wale Zegna Sartorio cords in 34.5(+0.5)"X29(+2)":
263,
and a few other things entirely unworthy of mention. What a triumph!, by my standards, at least, shog[1].gif.

Everything is available, so do make offers, please, if you're interested. I should be posting photos of the RLPL, the Luciano Barbera, and the Kiton after my traditional birthday repair to Nantucket this weekend. Till soon smile.gif!

Thanks for the insight. If it's that old I'll have to pass. My whole neighborhood is having a garage sale tomorrow. Maybe I'll have better luck then. Are there any telltale signs that a bike is older?

I picked up a pair of strap jodhpur boots recently at a local thrift. The branding inside is partially worn off...

Untitled-2.jpg

Looks like "Jermyn Street", "St. James", and "SW1". I can't read anything else. The outsoles simply say "Made in England" inside of an oval.

Only one maker comes to mind, one with the initials J.L. Could it be? smile.gif Are there any other possibilities?

These boots need to be cleaned up and are in need of a polish so I don't want to post any more photos yet.
