you'll be fine sending this to the 'bay. 

 

HF made G&H licensed stuff flips rather well as long as your expectations are tempered. that is to say, that it flips. if it flips it flips? no?

 

i'd pick that suit of the rack and say to myself "oh! hello there! you just put 2 to 3 jacksons in my pocket mr G&H".  It's no home run, but you cant win a triple crown without a few doubles.

I really must thank all of you here.  I've been lurking for a while and called out for help here in the forum a couple weeks ago and got some great advice.  Basically I just needed to go and search, the good stuff doesn't just land in your lap.  Well it has paid off really well for me.

 

Some recent hauls:

 

Mephisto Gaetan shoes in dark brown practically new for $20

 

Brooks Brothers Alden loafers for $6

 

Allen Edmonds Park Avenue for $6

 

Harris Tweed Long Coat really nice and fits me great $8

 

Brooks Brothers Madison cut Sport Coat

 

Numerous Brooks Brothers dress shirts in my size

 

Lots of nice ties, Brooks Brothers, Robert Talbott, Ike Behar, Ferragamo, etc for $2 a piece

 

The list goes on and on and it is quite fun and a real rush hunting for these things.  I'll try to post up some pictures when i get home from work of some of the haul.

That would be UGA, not OSU. Seriously, there's no good football outside the SEC.

Hey, speaking as a UConn fan... I agree.

Would rather not read 500 posts.

 

Thrift thread minutes?

I sold that really loud yellow T&A SC (size 50L) for like a hunnert on eBay, so they do pretty well

Bah, too lazy for pics. Stuff:

BB camel/wool cap, two cashmere scarves all mine.
Ferragamo 10 B black captoes, like new, if you r this size get at me for trade.
JPress beautiful brown glenplaid SC- probably Grendel's style and size given that I love it but tad small, Pm me bro, will eventually photograph this.
Hickey Freeman brand freaking new cords my size, unhemmed for 6 bucks. Pleated though.

Passed several dated Paul Stuart pants/jackets etc, an HF bespoke orphan, a relatively recent Oxxford orphan, a Cooper leather jacket (Made in China WTF! _ looking for a US made bomber), Hilton tweed, ugly Evisu selvedges, with paint slashed in back as a design element, huh!, many Pendletons, JCrews, some serviceable AEs and many more.

Sweater season is here
post #53534 of 114797
Passed on some stuff today because this GW wants $15 for jackets and $20 for suits. Are either of these worth going back for?

BB vintage 346 charcoal grey pin stripe flannel suit, 3/2 roll, single vent, canvassed. One tiny moth hole in the lower quarter. My guess is around a 42R size.

Navy hopsack quarter lined, hook vent, 3/2 roll, 2 button cuffs, BUT no tags at all. Very trad details so I feel it's a good one, but what value does a completely nameless navy jacket have? I'm swimming in it so I guess it's at least a 48L if anyone wants a tradly navy blazer that the light can pass through.

Sorry I don't have photos, but I'm working from my ipad.
