The label has both the European and the US/UK size, 41 cm is roughly 16 inches.

Go read back 1000 posts (this is by far the best way to learn IMO) and you won't make this mistake again and again and again with ties, shirts, suits, etc etc etc.

 

BB shirts are good if your keeping them but if your looking to flip I'd prob stick to Slim Fit and Extra Slim Fit only or you will have a BIG pile of BB shirts.

Nice pickup on the RLPL pants though fistbump.gif

I have read back that far, and that is always the advice given. But the problem is as a newbie you're still observing from 1000 ft up, so it's hard to pick up on something like that slim fit note. The YSL tie I get, but there were plenty of completed eBay auctions for fair prices (the other advice given) so *shrug*.

Its a running joke on the thread, along with Dior. It's all crap crap crap. The BB note was a side note and just friendly advice. You can flip BB shirts if you want to make $5-$10 all day long, but not really usually worth it, after fees, time to take picture, time to ship, etc etc. Same with the YSL tie. If you think you can flip it due to completed eBay auction prices, go for it  fing02[1].gif

Let us emphasize that you mean Christian Dior. If it only says Dior, well, that's far from crap.

damn, what a frustrating day.  especially considering all of the finds lately. 

 

I did, however, have several firsts in the wild.  unfortunately they were all way above budget (ie Barbour sweater - $30, NWT Pringle Sweater - $70, Incotex - $55) also ran into plenty of orphans >,<

 

Alas i grabbed some things

 

Merrell Barefoot Running Shoes 30% of retail icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Anyone a 20 Neck? NWT Gitman Formal Shirt

 

 

Two sweet cycling jerseys

 

 

 

Aquascutum Navy Blazer - Sweet Buttons, Dual Vent, Pick Stitching - 44R Available

 

 

 

Also a first for me. 

 

Drakes 40oz Windsor Twill

 

 

 

Left this on the racks because I've been burned by some orphans lately.  Should I go back and pick this up? I couldnt tell if it was SC or Suit.  Cheers!

These are amazing! Most comfortable shoe ever! Paid up at REI for mine, though.
