PS.  Check out this BB wash 'n' wear POW / gray plaid sack jacket that I changed the buttons on yesterday.  It went from gray plastic to genuine white MOPs.





^^^ Replacing the buttons on a navy blue blazer with genuine MOPs gets a lot of play, but I think they look really good on POW / gray plaid as well.  smile.gif

Good god typhoid. I didn't think you'd be trying to re-sell that j press tuxedo so soon or for 5 fold your money ....shog[1].gif

Good luck and If you do I hope to see a cut smile.gif

^^^ LOL.  It's not so much that I think that I'm going to sell it for that much.  bigstar[1].gif  But rather that I don't really want to sell it.  There's a couple of things that I price higher and put into the "Featured" section of my Etsy shop because they are attention getters and steer people into my shop when they're just browsing through their Trad / Ivy League searches.  I did the same thing with that cool University of Pennsylvania varsity letter jacket from 1946 that I picked up in the Berkshires.
 

You never know though... I did manage to sell that 1950s deadstock BB OCBD popover for $200 to a guy in Japan.  devil.gif

Totally off-topic (again), but I just wanted to publicly profess my love for these two people, and their great eBay listing photos (especially his).  I want to party with these guys!

It is . . . opulent.
And by that I mean ridiculously overwrought.

Ha. Haven't been there for years. The last time was about six years ago. Shaq was in the house.

I have never found a decent-looking Zegna tie; they have all been incredibly ugly.  They must have made some decent ones, but I've never seen them.

I'd feel like I was supporting their drug habit by buying from them.

Looks like NY Ranger after a bender. Trying to get that "just back from the meth lab" look just right.

I can't search it out right now, but there's this woman competing with Spoo...sells semi-high end clothing and models it herself. If she's selling pants she models herself in just a bra and the pants. That's it. I see her all the time in "other items you might like" suggestions every night but tonight when I want to paste in a pic...can't find her

The look like small-time Russian mobsters, to me...and who the hell has over 2,250 items listed on eBay at any given time (aside from these two, and actual businesses)?  Insane.

Are you holding Brianpore, or is that just someone roughly his size? I think I found a Ron Chereskin SC that would about fit...
