I'd like to send this out at no cost to someone that's a regular contributor to the board here because I've learned a sheeeitload over the past year and a half from this thread alone, but there are several conditions...once you receive it you have to post a fit pic. Secondly, if it doesn't fit, you have to pass the favor on to someone else here that can use it. That be all.

I will.

In this episode of Tales from the Dressing Room....

We see the keepers: Coogi Blue Jeans, Brooks Brothers, Saks Fifth Avenue House Label

263

These were released back into the wild: Monsieur By Givenchy, Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece long sleeve polo, Renzo Palandri, and a Zegna.

263

Finally, a grail find. You may not be able to tell, but it has 3D features and a bell attached. Yes, I bought this and yes I will be wearing this to a Christmas party this year.

In a surprise twist ending, I actually talked myself out of buying the Coogi jeans because I would never wear them and flipping seemed to be risky.

Hey, I was there a few hours ago!   That BB Golden Fleece Polo seemed rather large.

Thank you for your overly kind words. Even if the stores aren't as good, I won't have mainy to compete with!

We may have crossed paths then. It was labeled a large, but seemed closer to an extra large. It also had some strange pale spots on the bottom.

Stopped by a store today.  Haven't done much thrifting since the haul.

 

Samuelsohns are 40R, Oxxfords 43R, Zegnas 42 and 44R, Chester Barrie 44R, Brioni 44R

 

Availiable-ish, meaning, if you offer a fair price, I will be inclined to sell directly.  Otherwise, it gets shipped off for the bay.

Maybe you should give people some guidance on what you consider a "fair" price?

If sold on ebay kiss 10% good buy to ebay/paypal. Then factor into the equation the possibility of a bad buyer, having to relist, etc etc and if your looking to get a good dollar amount but still a good deal for all 60-75% of the ebay price is "fair" imo. 50% would be a good deal and 75% off ebay is a styleforum member special. "cost + shipping" is more of a trade when I find something for you, etc.

don't forget the (presumably 50%) cut that gets handed over to ebay consignors/selling partners.
