Nice guys! I got two 100% authentic Lacoste polos for three bucks each at Goodwill. Summer colors though; pink and yellow.

Best of luck in your venture DM. No reason you can't combine your passions for math and #menswear. If you're going through withdrawal, you're welcome to finish up my econometrics problem set for me biggrin.gif

Grabbed this in an attempt to mitigate my anger over ripped Brioni/Gucci ties thinking it was grenadine. After creeping the Hober site, seems I'm wrong. Confirmation? It's Bullock and Jones made in England if that's relevant.

Need some advice.

 

Found a Vintage Brooks Brothers double breasted coat in Navy, Wool/Cashmere blend.

 

Problem?

a noticeable moth hole on the back. Should I have picked it up anyway? (Flipping-wise of course)

 

It was this exact one, made in England....

I pretty much look for reasons to leave stuff at stores now almost no mater what it is - moth holes, stains, rips, missing buttons,etc. Overcoats are pretty hard to flip and BB are a dime a dozen so I'd say good pass.

Overcoats maybe, but when you get into stuff more like peacoats and duffle coats they flip well. Esp the stuff a bit older. Good condition BB Overcoats I would pick up to flip all day long at thrift prices like this on http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=130784296547

Not a grenadine, sorry.

 

This is a grenadine "grossa" (large) weave

 

 

 

And a "fina" (small) weave

Nice. Wish mine had been new smile.gif What does Orvis even retail for? It doesn't seem like anything special to me.

I don't know, but there is a small Orvis shop in town I have been meaning to check out. I am sure there are mostly fishing supplies there, but maybe they have a few clothing articles to check out too. 

 

 

There is this though

I agree with parts of what all of you have said, and my plan is similar to what most of you recommended.  

 

I plan to continue college, taking one or two courses at a time at UCSB.  It will be far cheaper to do this at UCSB than at my current school.  I really love maths, and I will continue to study that.  This will allow me not only to continue growing my business, but also to focus more deeply on each maths class.  One of the main reasons that this business venture has been profitable is my math education.  Behind every non-thrift purchase is a 500+ line spreadsheet in which I do analysis.  Beyond that, maths is my passion.  Take classes in this way will lower my stress, and allow me to study each topic with greater intensity.

 

I will finish my math degree.  It may take me 8 years, but instead of finishing it lost and in debt, I will finish it with direction and a large chunk of change in the bank.

 

Best of luck to you, this sounds like a level-headed plan if you manage to stick to it.  Being at a very competitive program can really take it out of you, stress-wise and money-wise.  Been there, man.  Slowing down a bit sounds like a reasonable solution if you keep course.  As others have said, college isn't for everyone, but if it is for you, it is worth it.  Props to you for finding your own path.

Here's to math-types!  cheers.gif

A few quick questions-

who made Brooks Brothers Made In Italy sportcoats in 2004? The one I just got has a plain blue label that says "Brooks Brothers" and then "Established 1818" on the bottom.

Who made Made in Italy boots for J. Crew?
