Most likely not the LBM 1911 you're looking for. The one that will sell is the trendy stuff: narrow labels, slim fit, double vent, high button stance, etc.

Which ONE should I keep?

How much of a peacock are you?

Personally, I think Cosmos is the best design, bar none. Beautiful color variation, good contrast. Follies de Ciel is whimsical (I have it in a black 90cm)

But, would you wear a pink pocket square? Would you frame it, if you don't wear it? Or would it languish, forgotten and unloved, in the bottom of the drawer?

If you are a bit more conservative, I think the dark grey tie-pattern (top row, fourth from the right) would look wonderful with a dove grey, navy, or charcoal suit.

Excellent eye, I am close to the same debate. I know the Cosmos is the most desirable but alas the one I would get most use of would be one of the tie patterns. Thank you for the post.

I found these Allen Edmonds dress shoes in size 12a the other day. I typically wear a size 11D but they fit well enough that I may hang onto them.

I think Zegna cloth is underrated as a selling point; a few weeks ago I sold a random unvented Coppley jacket with Zegna cloth for $50, which is more than I got for an Oxxford jacket, two HF jackets, a full Paul Stuart suit, and any other jacket I've listed before (individually, not combined).

You could also probably flip them and use the money to buy a pair on eBay actually in your size, which will probably make you a lot happier and more comfortable.

Coppley seems like decent stuff. I pick up pretty much anything loro piana because the name carries enough weight. If you're getting less than $50 for an Oxxford though, unless it's an orphan or something seriously wrong with it, you're doing something wrong.

Also, did you get my money? happy.gif

I was thinking that very same thing just now actually. I listed them on Craigslist so Ill see what happens.

I suspect you are right. Fortunately, my investment is low. Pictures (and I know, I need to spend more time with staging):

Not that many people pass on cashmere jackets, but I've had good experience with Colombo cashmere. I don't know how it works as a selling point, but if you find something for yourself you should grab it.

Might post some cool finds later if I get a lil more good stuff soon.

 

I would pick up the Barbera.

Cool shit @ a local consignment store. (Click to show)

 

 

I would totally get that Brioni hanger plus the Polo behind it. Did you at least get that Brioni?

 

I don't think that's the Givenchy you are looking for. I've ran across a few of them in the field. They don't look to be quality made.

Yeah I'm not sure what happened with that Oxxford. I put it on B&S and didn't get any offers and I listed it on eBay twice; I think it was because the arms were 2 inches shorter than a normal jacket, though.

I did; I'll be picking up the glasses tomorrow afternoon and I'll probably be able to get them in the mail after work.

Found a Fay coat for my daughter over the summer. I had never heard of them either but the quality seemed very high. A quick Google search yielded a pic of Madonna wearing the same coat, which retails for about $1,100. Mine was $20.

Definitely nice. I have only seen it in high-end stores. The quality is definitely there and I would assume it would stick out against the normal stuff on thrift racks.

how is that even possible?!?!?! I flipped a canali proposta orphan for $200 without much effort. Have you tried taking better pictures or putting the jackets on a mannequin?
