Ok you guys might know something about these suits.. I went thrifting the other day and found 3 italian suits and am unsure of the maker of the worth.. regardless they fit like a glove all of them.. the previous owner must have had my exact measurements.. anyways lemme know what you guys know!

Besides these suits I also picked up two cedar shoe trees, a pair of white saddle shoes, two lands end knit ties, a Joseph A Banks suit, a double breasted jacket, and a christian dior double breasted jacket, and three roly poly rocks glasses.. needless to say was a good day.. along with all that I also picked up 4 french cuff shirts in my size.. spent 30 bucks for all of it.. sorry for all the pics btw and any info would be greatly appreciated!

Tyrwhitt shirts come with brass collar stays when you buy them new, so you got what you paid for...if they were missing and not noted in the listing, I would have made a minor ruckus.

yes, I bought the shirt and tie new - it was $40 for the both of them, including shipping

This has been a long time coming, and I wanted to accompany it with a thrift pic just so I could assure you all of how sexah my "new" gear is, but probably won't have time today. So with that I've gotta give a shout out and express my appreciation to:

Lookingr8: For a solid staple suit. Unfortunately I took it to a cheapo tailor to test him out and while he did everything great, for some reason he added a fifth button on the sleeve when he extended them instead of closing the button holes and spreading the four buttons out. Not a big deal and people seem to love the suit, but I hate knowing that lol.

Pnutpug: For being a great buyer

JpMorris: For my first pair of "lawyer" loafs icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif, and for giving me the low down about A2 so that I'm fully prepared next year.

Capnews: For being the fucking man. Park aves and Cheaney's? Don't think I haven't stopped looking for something awesome to surprise you with man, just haven't had a chance to get out as much.

Catside: For those sick ass Florsheim's, and they might just be the most comfortable shoes I own.

Mex: For hooking me up with Cat and for offering those Varvatos' (which we never finished up on lol)

Larson: For some dope ass Merlot's. Wearing these now, fully bossed out with this patina I plan on nurturing these next few years icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Finally, to the chill dudes like Randy, 330CK, BP, Bytor and EazyE for having patience with my forgetfull ass over the past few weeks. Even if I didn't finish a deal with you guys (yet)), I respect the patience.

That's my annual/bi annual thanks to everyone. Enough of this soft shit for now (but damn are these Merlots sexah)

Not surprisingly, no one seemed to notice these when I posted them 3 or 4 posts after the "Spooganza" on Saturday. They aren't even creased from being tried on, are size 12 D and are available. Considering they have the exact same font and pattern of printing on the inside as my Tramezzas, I'm pretty sure they were made by Ferragamo. Construction looks to be on the Lavorazione Originale level.

Not sure what Catside sent you, but I know I sent some Florsheims, not Cheaneys...unless I missed something. Either way, you are most welcome.

Had to run a few errands for work, stopped in for 2 minutes to pick these up.

 

The white ones are not MOP, at least I don't think they are. They are cold to the touch, but they seem to be some other type of shell. They are huge, at nearly 1 1/8" in diameter.

Interesting to see some TBNY in here... I just picked up the nicest pair of TBNY I've seen the other day. I haven't had time for pics of that and another sick find, but either tonight or tomorrow.

Those shell links look like they're oyster. Those are good rookin'.

hey guys, I just got 4 click and ship packages I sent yesterday returned to me for insufficient postage. Something to do with the Zone. I know I can go back to PO and get additional postage and they will run new labels but can someone explain to me what I did wrong and how the USPS site could possibly print labels with insufficient postage (this was not a deal where I was using flat rate boxes and failed to use flat rate labels...these weren't FRBs)?

Skip the snark please, I'm PO'd at the P.O. enough the way it is, ha, don't poke the bear!

on the bright side, that's not true. the only thing you're out is the original price of the shirt (plus shipping costs and your lost time).

think of it this way:

  • on day 1, you buy one share of a stock at $1.
  • on day 2, that stock skyrockets to $1,000 a share. you hang onto it.
  • on day 3, the company goes out of business and your share is now gone forever

how much are you out? $1000? nope, you're out $1. i know there's some fancy economics term for it.
post #40888 of 118288
Did you specify an incorrect ship from zip code? The ship from zip code and return address don't have to match. I sometimes mess it up when I forget to change it, but haven't had an issue yet. Your scale may also be off?

I think fancy economics would say yes, you are out $1,000

I'm not sure what economics would say, but I have the feeling psychology would say that I'm out the cash and the shirt biggrin.gif Reality is that yeah, probably just out the original price and the time.
