Thanks man, there were about 4-5 more Zegnas but these were really nice, the one is a more soft cotton and the other is one of the more recent labels. The LPs looked old, not in terribly bad condition or anything, just baggy and old. And one of them I purchased for myself, however, I am not sure if it going to work. Plus, they were at consignment prices and to be honest, I don't think they were worth the pick up.

Yeah, it was insane. It is also my first Brioni and Borrelli at a consignment store that didn't want $50+ for each. I had all of these shirts in my hand and realized I actually needed to put some back. Usually when I am in store I purchase shirts just to purchase them.

Can someone verify this is recent Samuelsohn. I can't think of any other Canadian maker that produces fully canvassed pieces this nice. Maus & Hoffman. 100% silk. No size, but this thing is BIG. Haven't measured it yet, but it's at least a 50-54L US. Available
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



All pants below are double pleated, cuffed, between 42-44 waist and 29-30" inseam. All are available.

Brioni x 3. All the same exact color and size, though the color isn't showing up well here. Deep and vibrant olive green.

Brioni 100% cotton. Really interesting pants. Look like denim.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Brioni Super 140s. Off white/cream color.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Pal Zileri. Khaki colored.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Didn't pick these up because GW actually recognized Maus & Hoffman on the tag and doubled the price of them. All are Maus & Hoffman house brand. Either made in USA, Canada or Italy. 42-44 waist, 29-30 inseam. Double pleated and cuffed. Either cotton or wool. Willing to proxy any of the below. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

watch I thrifted but It didn't have a band. At first I thought it was broken but then I realized it is perpetual which is kind of annoying because I wouldn't wear it all the time and I don't have one of those cases that keeps it on track

also what kind of band should I put on this? most of my other watches I put natos on but I feel like that would look innappropriate with this one

Found one a while back that looks identical to the one on the left. Had a brush and a bag of shoelaces in it. It was only $5 so I popped on it. Nice to have everything all in one place.

A little help needed here.
What is a fair price for these:
LL Bean Made in USA Boots
http://www.ebay.com/itm/120987538947?ssPageName=STRK:MEBOFFX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1432.l2649

They are seconds(red line on tag), stained, dirty, and in an odd size, but the seller won't take less than $250.

Edit- Not related to seller in anyway, just looking to buy them.
