Ha at least you got a good deal for the Corneliani. You have any insight to the quality? I've heard it compared to BB (slightly better). Does that sound accurate?

A store near me was holding it's 99 cent weekend. I normally avoid thrift stores sales, as they're packed and all the good stuff is snatched up quick, but I was in the neighborhood so I popped in.

The racks were bare, but I found an old made in England Burberry raincoat and a ton of nice ties that had been overlooked.
Does anyone know how these raincoats run size-wise? The chest on this guy is 23" across, I was hoping it's look ok on me worn over a suit, but I'm swimming in it.

L-R: Canali, Canali, Charvet, Luciano Barbera, Zegna, Canali

None really my style at all, but a lot of names I've never seen thrifting before, so I picked them up (perhaps foolishly).


Also picked up a black Le Creuset dutch oven

A bit of a bummer, I overheard two of the guys camped out next to their overflowing carts talking, apparently a local ebay flipper is paying them an hourly wage to sit in the store all day and go through the new racks as they come out!

I feel like I can;t really complain, since I'll pick up nice things to trade or sell on ebay to subsidize other purchases, but still, it kinda bugs me.

Haha, you know, I think it still might. If not pretty close. I've put a little weight on over the years, but nothing crazy.

Happened twice today and it sucks a bag of cock.  I understand needing to keep us noobs in line but really . . . 

 

 

Make your post without pictures...then edit the pictures in afterwards. That should be a work-around.

^ also, try posting the pictures to a third party site like imgur.com

Someone needs to get on this right NOW, http://www.ebay.com/itm/STUNNING-ROYAL-TWEED-for-Churchs-Cordovan-Calf-Leather-Loafers-10-5-US-/270986593356?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item3f180f444c#ht_38641wt_2918

Church's shell 10.5 @ 50 with 5 mins left.

*actually cheaney I haven't looked at this very closely, but not shell. Damnit, that was a fail. Oh well, I tried... Time was of the essence. Regardless Cheaney's for $50 isn't bad in my estimation.

Just missed out. Would have turned them into a really nice looking wallet and key chain.
