I wouldn't say they are the greatest, but for the price you paid AND it's gonna be in the pool room? Perfect! `When you blow them out after playing too much AC/DC, Creed, Misfits, Clash, Tool, Metallica, Toby Keith or whatever your flava is (Wu-Tang? Doc Watson? Glee?), there will be more out there.

Nope, those ain't them--they will definitely benefit from stands. And the billiards room is dominated by Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and sometimes Grateful Dead. We are not, after all, savages. AC/DC, Clash and 2Pac rock the Buick.

Not all ebay buyers are bad ...

Jon,

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful pack. My wife has been patching her original for over 30 years and I have been looking far and wide for a replacement. To find this perfectly preserved example for her is absolutely wonderful.

 

And I'd like to thank you for the $111.

Next thrift priority for you: Cannon subs for the trunk to make the Buick go boom

I bust a nut when I find a good condition or recent Robert Graham. Those god-awful things turn crazy profits on the bay. Much better than I've done with the few Brionis or Zegnas I've flipped.

Today was a good day at the local Goodwill

Kiton 100% cashmere forest green 3/2 jacket, unfortunately it's too big for me it's tagged 48 but it fits like maybe a 44L in my estimation. If it doesn't work for my Dad I'll most likely sell it.

Anyone know what It might go for on eBay?

Also found a pair of black Church's Kingsley tassel loafers for myself

fing02[1].gif Really need to just do a tiny bit of research to start with http://www.ebay.com/csc/Blazers-Sport-Coats-/3002/i.html?_dcat=3002&LH_ItemCondition=3000&Material=100%2525%2520Cashmere&_nkw=kiton%20cashmere&LH_Complete=1&_sop=15

I actually did check eBay after I got back to the car but I was hoping someone on the forum might have experience. It's a bit of an odd color being forest green, certainly much odder than solid grey so I'm not sure if that would hinder it or not.

Had a few finds today. Things have really sucked at my favorite store lately. It's completely dried up. Not sure what's going on. I'm sure a lot of it is getting vacuumed up in the back room as there's some management changes going on.

Women's Brioni blouse. Has a couple spots that I need to try and get out. Available

467

263

Gucci shirt. Tom Ford era? Anyone know? Does it really matter for a shirt? It's headed to the bay either way if there's no interest here. 16.5 Available

467

263

Willis & Geiger plaid shirt. Lightweight cotton and has tabs to keep the sleeves rolled up. L. Available

467

And this brand new Canon photo printer w/ new Belkin USB cord.

Got out all the free stuff today to the people that paid shipping. Got a few things left. I want to note again, I am not looking for cost + shipping, just shipping. Should be about 6-10 bucks for each shirt left depending on what you want (or can combine them into one package). Only three or four things left. Also, sorry for anyone who wants measurements. I'm not only extremely lazy considering I'm giving these away, but I actually cannot find a measure here at my house in Jersey (staying at home for the next two months working before going into LS). I might be able to find one later but no promises, sorry if I haven't gotten back to you. I can honestly tell you the size at this point and if it seems TTS, but I mean for $5 it's not the biggest risk in the world and I'm pretty sure most people will get more on the bay for these things than I can.

Once again too, if someone finds oxford captoes like Park Aves in 9-9.5D please let me know. I really, really could use a pair and would prefer not to drop part of my next check buying $400 shoes right now. Also other business casual shoes as well. And anyone who knows me KNOWS I keep a select stash of stuff for things I need that I've never posted. Think Dunhill coat, RLPL shirts, Lindenberg and D&G jackets/suits for those that have something I really need.

Also gotta say thanks to lookingr8 for getting me that Pal suit. It's in the tailor right now. Ironically enough it was a bit tight around the waist (can deal with it monday) with not much to let out so I better make sure not to gain any fat.
