Saw one this weekend and didn't pick it up.  Not sure what I was thinking (actually my thinking was that I wouldn't wear it).

You must be doing it wrong... (Click to show)

This is just the sales from my sport coats since October 1st. 

This is SC sales for the last 90 days..... with a 5 week break in September.This is just my Hobby, which I do in addition to my regular full time job. Granted...it's a big fucking hobby and a lot of hard work.

+1 Too much work for most, but it can be done with the proper skills and tools.

you sir are the man! The only other lb sartoriale I found had no cell phone pocket. the buttons will never be functional,, but we've got some attolini on our hands boys! Actual fabric content looks hand written which can't be bad. Pic soon

Yep...you should see how mad my wife gets. But she told me last night she is broke for the next week or two....so I guess she will be my best friend until I give her an allowance. I think I would like some steak tonight!

Not expensive if intact. What color? I'm interested if it is a color I don't have and good shape.

If you combine the hours you spend, effort you put in, including light boxes etc, That comes to like 20 bucks per hour. No lawyers will leave their jobs smile.gif
Delete that damn post please. Competition with already existing purveyors of vintage fine men's clothing is bad enough.

On unrelated news found a 50ies-60ies vintage USA made shearling coat. A beaut. From Gloucester, Mass and called a Mighty Mac.

I dunno... From hearing Wes's routes to knowing how long it takes to photograph, measure, list, answer questions, box, ship, etc. I bet he's putting in 40+ hours a week on his hobby. Me? I'm much lazier than that. lol8[1].gif

Bingo!  I probably average 50 hours a week outside of the time I screw around here while at work. Plus I travel about 450-500 miles per week visiting thrift stores in the area. Motivated entirely by the high interest rates on my student loans. I intend to pay off the remaining 18 years worth of payments in the next 12-16 months.
