I did a little research and I think it was only Donna Karan Signature or Collection so it wouldn't have been a line high up enough to been St Andrews. I remember that comp tag from when I found a bunch of Sulka items. But yeah I've definitely got my eyes open for both of those lines now.

My first shells in the wild, Alden for Brooks Brothers, no?

Unfortunately, these are just a size too small for me. Despite the unworn-looking soles, the tops of the shoes are kinda beat up in places, but I'm guessing they can be rehabilitated. I see the love for shell now, as these are dope as hell and I wish they were bigger. Probably going to have to get some cream and cleaner before I send them on their way.
A vintage double-breasted jacket. Nice-looking, but just look at the details...
700 Seriously, click inside (Click to show)

Absolutely huge buttons with leather-lining on the buttonholes and a leather strip across the top of the pockets.

700
Oh yeah, the lining is an insanely rad bullfighting print!
700
This is the ONLY tag in the entire jacket. It is built like a freaking tank and obviously the lining is eye-popping. I'm guessing it's 60s or so. Too small for me (as usual!), so hit me with an offer if you can swag it (based on trying it on, I'm guessing it's 42R or 40R, but can get measurements on request).
Lastly, does anyone know anything about Diesel jeans? Are they worth anything? Picked this pair up for myself, and unfortunately the curse of the cyclists thighs strikes again. 34x34 and they're beautiful, with sort of a grey chambray look.

Yes indeed... Alden for BB. Nice shooz!! What size?

 

That DB is crazy cool too.

Warning: EBAY BLACKLIST UPDATE (Click to show)

 

PSA. I just added 2 bidders to the Blacklist. Save yourself a headache or two. They were sending me simultanious emails. Wow, I wish everyone was as good as the people in this thread.

 

One was irate when I opened an unpaid case after 6 days.  A reminder was sent on day 4, and he still has til day 10 to pay. I will probably get bad feedback from him.

 

The other sent a question about a suit. The description described it as needing light drycleaning. She said I should have it cleasned myself and that I was stupid.

 

Um, no thanks.

I've been on the lookout for some good tweed for a while now (all I have is a pretty cruddy Stafford) and was kicking myself for not picking up a decent Norm Thompson made in England tweed yesterday... until I came across these...











Those last two are Pure Cashmere, btw.  
Also found a Brooks Brothers Makers & Merchants shirt, in my size, with french cuffs.  Normally I'd be pretty stoked about that, but today destroyed my normal expectations.

First of all a huge shout out to Xenos who got me an incredible Cucinelli linen shirt and gorgeous RLPL tie in great time. Thanks man!

 

Here's my finds from the last couple days.. More accessories than big stuff, but oh well...

 

Found this Canali suit today... Left behind another Canali and older HF that both had damage, as well as a Lubiam 1911 that had a dated low gorge and no vents. 

 

AVAILABLE

Yesterday I picked up this Belvest navy blazer... Unfortunately I didn't notice the damage on the lapel. Available if anyone wants it at cost, otherwise going back. It's really too bad 'cause this thing had sick pick stitching and detailing.

A pair of dark brown twill Canali Proposta flat front trousers... Maybe reverse orphans, but the jacket wasn't around, so... Probably not available pending trying them on.

A cool Johnston's of Elgin scarf... 

700

 

 

That's probably available 'cause I like this other one better and it doesn't have a maker's tag

Also picked up this untagged silk scarf that should go well with my grey with aqua pinstripe HF suit

 

700

 

Another Scottish tartan tie, available

Also picked up a cool lithograph. I like it but my GF isn't so excited... I found this guys stuff listed here going for a couple hundred

If I decide to flip it instead of keep it, how would I go about that? eBay?

All in my size, but not sure if I really need all six.  If I decide to part with a few, I'll make sure to let you guys know.

"I'd be willing to give it a shot."

It'll be in the mail on Monday.

By shot I'm assuming he meant buckshot, like with a shotgun? happy.gif

Those Oxxfords! drool.gif  Those are the kind of hauls that get one hooked.

 

I've been wanting to do a thrift fit pic for a while now, but haven't really worn anything particularly worthy or MC-ish all since school's out for summer.  I did go to a wedding this afternoon, though, so I thought I'd take a couple of pics.

To top it all off, I just realized all of the links to store pages in my listings have been broken for three weeks. In the process of updating 80 listings right now. UGGGHHH
