Oh oops I agree it was well said and centainly a helpful overview

I am not sure why he would use it for personal ends, do you see the name of the person it was made for?

Thanks, Randy. It's all good. I misread his post and intent. He just wanted to know if there were any places of note in SF, and from that frame of mind, I could see where my post might sound condescending. Ian already acknowledged he misread mine.

Heh, and now I see that you saw... I'll just stop now.

Is there a strong post-secondary market for the used clothes of the elite? I mean, I can understand people who are a part of pop consciousness, but a corporate dynasty like the Rothschilds? I'm really curious. Like, would a suit owned by a Rockefeller be worth scrilla?

I sold a bespoke suit for john wayne before but I am 80% sure it was fake oh well the guy still bought it but if a custom suit for famous people is worth faking then there must be a market right?

So, I grabbed the Alexander McQueen. It's mint and the pockets are still stitched up. It's 44R but *slim* for a 44. I wear a 42 and this fit me pretty good in the shoulders and the body. If Samuel Smith passes on it, its available before hitting the bay.

There was a dude going through the ties and labels violently, I thought for sure everything was gone but alas...

That's much more appealing to my twisted brain than MJ's glitter pants would be, but I doubt that's the case for most people. I wouldn't be surprised if there were a select few who collected such things from on the historical bent of it. I would be surprised if that market could be labeled "strong". But that's all a guess. Why the hell am I posting?

Oh yeah, cool jacket. I love owning things with history, especially ones you can trace.

Ian, Orvis is ok. Some people like Alexandre, but its not anything special. The rest of the stuff you had questions on is no good.
