Nice find. I used to dabble in rare and out of print movies for some extra cash. But, there aren't many places around here that trade in VHS and DVDs anymore.

 Well Eazye, It was close. But I think the shoulders will still be too wide. I make it more of a 40R TAKEN

 

Damn spoiler is still broken for me, can't move it down from the top, so pics are above.

Just grabbed a pair of Isaia cotton twill pants. I can't seem to find any tags on the pants. Can anyone help me ID? Buttons say Isaia and the hardware (zipper, clasp) are Italian. They don't fake these things, do they?

Ok couple random things that someone may want... Im sorta wary to even post these after Attolini for LB and that nasty jacket above me (that I want, hands off!) but here we go. IMG_1259.JPG Anyone want crazy modern art esque silk suspenders? Not trafalgar, but im doing cost (1.50) plus shipping, so no bitching. 

IMG_1261.JPGIMG_1262.JPGIMG_1263.JPG Wasn't someone talking about these not long ago? How the hell do you end up with mail order deadstock? Avaliable

Since we are on the topic, I picked up this Lanvin (Licensed) today. I like the pattern and I don't care if it's SF approved or not. I have a good selling average on these.

I've pretty much read this thread all the way through over the course of a couple weeks, and was just wondering what you guys look for in terms of pricing. I've only been looking for things that fit, but I bumped into this Loro Piana partially lined linen SC size EU52 (I am EU50/40R frown.gif ). I am not really interested in becoming a flipper etc., since I am way too new to all this, and am really just looking for things for myself.

Anyways, for myself for future reference, this thing was priced at $40 (the store is an actual charity thrift, not consignment). Standard? Good? Bad? I was just looking for guidance as to what you guys look for in terms of price for shirts, SC/blazers, and full suits. I did pick up a Lorenzini shirt there for $10 that I took straight to my tailor to have the sides taken in. Anyways, this thing has been in the store for well over a week so if anyone is interested I can run and pick it up.

Ill give you $85 to go back and buy that for me tomorrow, please. PM me. biggrin.gif

Hey guys, anyone knows anything about Bass shoes? I've found a pair that look like these.

Any thoughts on these? Country of origin? Quality? How much would you guys pay for a pair?

Says Brazil, Average quality. I would pay 3 bucks at a thrift store....maybe. Probably would leave them on the shelf.

Thrift fit coming later. Lots of non-thrift in it, but excited because I think I finally made a nice tie/outfit/pocket square combo.

Please take several hours/days and read a LOT before doing anything else.

looked a lot like this shirt:

forgot to include this:

also, Evil Abed casually throwing in a "cool cool cool" is icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

This is "legit" Lanvin, perhaps Spoo could chime in on the vintage. I think its a bit old, the way Armani le Collezioni, V2 Versace, Gucci ( script), etc are. I'm sure there's some vague flipability, but Lanvin has flown pretty low on the SW&D scene, only sneakers and outerwear register on my radar. That Coat by Boglioli posted a few spots up from you, however, are King Shit Tom Cat' s pajamas.

No pics but I found a recent Armani suit today and some sweet full last Florsheim shoe trees. Anybody know when the Armani branding switched from the white label to a black backing with white text?
