It's pretty likely that you live by yourself.  When you live with someone else and are constantly parading through the common areas with backdrops, mannequins, tripods, and armfuls of clothes that don't fit said person you're walking by, the situation might be a little different.

Older, but good, right?

 

 

I actually left a YSL Rive Gauche the other day as I had already purchased a Brioni, Versace, Charvet, and Barba earlier which put this one to shame.  It was really sad to be searching for a name and realize it was as flimsy as the polyester stuff I was passing by.

A large chain of local thrift stores is called ARC (Association for Retarded Citizens), though they don't advertise the acronym as meaning anything other than benefitting the mentally handicapped.

It sounds sinister, but its a guy who was an excellent thriftier and appeared to do it full time. He kinda got under people's skin at times and was banned several times. Frenchy, was his name.

OH yeah. I was here for that.

I didnt get a photo of it, so I had to search around the web for one to post here.

This is not a label we're looking for, correct? Tie was similarly ugly to this one.

Would you guys have multiple panic attacks if I bought something for close to retail? Herman Miller is having its annual 15-percent off sale starting Monday, and I really want an Aeron chair. Talk me out of it; my $750 is counting on it.

 

 

Though with my new working situation, it would be a tax writeoff.

I don't think so. That's from like the late 80's early 90's.

Than nwot Helly Hensen outerlayer top and than bam the bottom. Ski maybe but snowboarder more so. L and jet black, and rubbery, and available.
Than deadstock new black Allen Edmonds wingtips at 14 EE. If you are this size then PM me and you won't be sorry.
Than tan vintage Gucci wingtip brogues, 43 but a bit narrow for me since I am better with wide. A 9.5-10 US I guess for narrow side of D people.Avl.
Than an Alan Paine argyle -keeping-, and a exc. yellow Polo blue label lambswool, which is XL and I'll shrink it or pass it to someone.
Than a 16.5 almost new T&A shirt Fr. cuff, keeping but can trade if you have the same in 17.
Than vintage LL Bean goose down US made, keeping.

I know nothing about men's suspenders, but the completed listings seem positive for Limited Edition Trafalgar.

And selling Zegna shirts seems hit and miss too, but I couldnt leave them behind.
