I can't even begin to quote all of the cool things I've seen in the past few days, so I'll just say well done to everyone! I can especially say nice job to some of the more recent contributors.

As a general rule, I never leave Brioni in great shape. It will almost always find a home and if you can't make money off of it, you can always do a cost + shipping on it here and make someone's day.

So, I've been running into some HSM Gold Trumpeter orphans but haven't picked up any yet. I was very close picking one up because it could pass for a SC until I've found the right shoulder padding is waaaaaaaaaaaaay more than the left. WTF? I didn't know they made MTM for people with severely lower one shoulder?

I think you have that bass akwards...leave the Oscar de la Renta and grab the Brioni. Is the hole on a seam? How big is it?

Moth hole in the middle of the shoulder blade area. and was a 42, so i just couldn't see myself paying to mod a orphan with a hole in it. was a nice jacket though, if somebody wants. i can pick it up and swap.  could be a nice drinking jacket for going to bars and clubs. if it fits you.

If you're not into the flipping game, which plenty of people here aren't, then it's a shame that it doesn't fit. If you're into flipping, some things can be repaired and sold. Like someone mentioned about the Hermés shirt that was beat up and sold for $80+, it's sometimes surprising what people will buy for a name.

I mostly shop for myself and am disappointed but not totally put off by small defekts like a snag or moth hole. I can understand where you're coming from though, it doesn't fit, it's an orphan and there's damage.

thanks, i don't really flip stuff. but i see so much, that i might start to pick up some things if the condition is good. somebody will want it.

Like a recent Zegna sportscoat that i saw today in a size 44R. it was AWESOME. but too big.facepalm.gif

It's sometimes hard to leave really nice things. I pick things up that I know people on here would want and usually do a cost + shipping deal. Occasionally my radar is off and something that I think will bring a lot of interest doesn't and then I'm stuck with it. However, it's always nice to help others out here. If you help a few people out here, I've found that most are willing to help you out when they find something in your size.

While we're on the subject, if you come across any black tie stuff, shoes or a shirt, in smaller sizes, would you mind picking it up? I'm on the hunt for patent shoes and a tux shirt. smile.gif

+1 if you have the funds and inclination to do so, buy it and maybe someone here who's a 44R will trade you something in your size for it, or work out a similar deal. It can be much easier to find things in your size when you've got a cross-continent network out there searching.

calling you little guys...

coolest T-shirt I've ever seen. Small Vintage Fit Tommy Bahama "Beer Run" T. Not thrift prices, but decently priced at Marshalls.

Available for a "nice" thrifted tie or shirt.
