Looks real, and looks to be made by Corneliani if this is to be believed:

Stumbled upon two RLBL suits, need to let out the hip area by a 1/2 an inch or so and the waist. Hope these are the real deal so I can tailor & dry clean them to use as beaters. Anyone know if these are legit? Made a thread with more photos here.

No.  This is just Brooks Sport.  Not even really a diffusion; just a different label within the regular Brooks line.

HOLD ON, are you telling me this is the Black Fleece Sport Shirt tag? I've seriously been passing these up left and right thinking they were just regular sport shirts.
Yeah I have no idea how to describe this one. 3rd grader's drawing of different kinds of sushi, maybe?

I've been reading along silently in the background but haven't posted in here since 2/24.  Why?  1.  Some random schmuck drooling over everyone else's success without contributing any of his own gets old, and 2.  I haven't found anything really brag-worthy of note until recently.  I've picked up some sweaters here and there - a couple of common everyday sweaters, some beater pants on $1 day for work, etc. but these few items are few and really far between 'round these parts.

 

I'm keeping the tie but the shirts are available for tradesies.  I'm just not interested in the hassle of the bay.

 

This tie is buttery soft and thick.  Not sure how the color comes out on your end but it's pretty much "Santa Suit Red".

Why risk trading with a n00b?  1.  I'll ship to you, you make sure you get what you expected, then if you are satisfied you can ship from your end (or send back dis-satisfied), 2.  I'm perfectly fine with you trading for it with the intention of selling if you can make some money off of it.  Once it's out of my hands it's your item to do with what you please.

 

I've loved keeping up with this thread to see how it's evolved, see everyone's scores, and to watch Spoo's ability to separate fools cherished deep-pocketed buyers from their money time and again.

I am usually the fool that separates from my money, earned from my cherished deep pocketed buyers. frown.gif

Ah, there it is.  I knew it didn't seem right and was puzzled why the heel thread had it under Corneliani but couldn't think of the right maker.  Thanks.

Nice hauls this weekend, guys!

 

I was waiting for a friend when I got a text that he was running a little late. Decided to take a quick look into my two local thrifts, which don't normally yield much. 

 

I never find ties, let alone staple ties in great condition! (Not available.)

Florsheim Imperial! Not my normal size, but they fit me well enough to keep (not available). Other than the heel wear, these are in really great condition inside and out. I posted some detailed pictures; are these V cleats?

Anyone know the quality of Johnston & Murphy shoes at slightly above thrift prices and used, to pick up for wearing not for flipping? They say Made in Italy and appear solid but I have no experience with the line.

Ok, whats better than a heated car seat in a state with -20 temps in the winter? An Irvin RAF jacket. Better still? A 20 dollar Irvin RAF jacket.

Thanks guys, I was debating between caruso and cornelianli as well (I did check that thread before hand)

Nope, looks to be a regular and heavily tailored. I've never felt a size 38 so tight on me.

Does anyone know how to tell if there's enough fabric I can let out the waist (hips) by an inch?
