They aren't.  smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif 

Who the hell sells one of these to a SECOND HAND PLACE, anyways?????? O.o It's literally flawless, considering it's distressed from the start. Paid fifteen bucks (They hadn't the slightest clue what it was), but something tells me I can flip it for a LOT more than that...

Sigh...I am suitably intrigued, and in for some heavy reading, I guess.
Today's insight: face your fears and check the women's section! In addition to some nice vintage designer stuff, there's probably some menswear there, too. I grabbed this $300+ Theory officer-ish zip-up thingie. (Downside: People stared, and I was forced to hold it aloft like lantern, chanting, Menswear!, menswear!...)
Am I supposed to be picking up theory? Pass on it all the time...

Change the reds to a pouch of drum and you describe last night/this morning

Thread has been on fire lately. My findings from yesterday seem measly in comparison. Nonetheless I promised them so here:
BB Sport Shirt for me. N/A


Vineyard vines spread collar shirt. People like these right? Size L, pm me for measurements, available

And lastly, My first RLPL. Unfortunately only a polo. I have a feeling there was more in the store at somepoint and someone forgot to look through the polo's rack. Size L, available

A better representation of the color

Had to leave behind a Faconnable Tailleur blazer due to holes. On the topic of being drunk in the thread, I've had a few shots of Jager tonight, I apologize for any typos, haha

I always leave basics and the MADE IN CHINA pieces behind.

I guess it doesnt matter if its for yourself but if you're looking to flip...Theory is VERY hit or miss.

I would hand it off to a consignor. Im gonna say Spoo cause I bidders flock to his listings and he could get you top dollar for it.

post #52357 of 114521

A couple firsts today...

 

The first Battistoni I've found that wasn't shredded and my first Barba.  Absolutely the thickest tie I've ever handled.  Wonder how dense a 9 fold Kiton is...

 

 

700

So, I just gotta say....im fuckin ITCHING to get out and go hunting (and by hunting I mean thrifting).

 

Its been a few days and its killing me that I have no money to make it happen. Ugh, this is worse than when I was a heavy drinker. Traded one bad habit for another.

post #52359 of 114521

Five dollah cash? :P

 

I'm going to put it on SF's classifieds... I've never seen a shadow plaid balmain for sale before though, so I really have no idea what an appropriate price is :/

Thats why I would auction it off.

 

You dont want to rip yourself off.

post #52361 of 114521

How would I hand something like that off to a consignor? I think you're probably right...

 

I am absolutely amazed... I thought I'd found something good... but the response I've gotten is really something special :)

Dunno, man. Mainy hooked me up on a sweet ass Dunhill by Caruso thays my new favorite suit. Cashmere Caruso? That'd be worth coin. For example: if 42R, just send to me and I will verify.
(Srsly, there's a pic of the Caruso tag just a few posts back. Compare to your dunhill if same, kopparoo)


Lost out on a Donnegal tweed (std black/gray herringbone) that fit me like. A. Glove. Because I only had $9 and they wanted $12.

Win some, lose some. Also, it was really, really old and the lining was a little blemish-y.

Here you go du.  A Balmain shirt of the plainest variety starts around $800.  I'd say ask $150 and see what happens.

I'm pretty sure he posted a pic of his tag and I think it was Zegna IIRC.
