Anyone know where Paul Stuart shirts fall in terms of quality/flippability? Passed on a funky pink regular Paul Stuart shirt I would've bought for myself but didn't want to risk flipping, and a Paul Stuart Sea Island Cotton because of a small stain on the sleeve. But I'd like to know for the future.

Haha! Ridiculous. What did you end up doing with that? I wonder what the buttons appraised for.

Pretty poor despite being good shirts.

I had a bunch that I used to wear, they were in great condition, but I wanted to get rid of all my point collars, barely got $7-15 for them on ebay after several listings, even the sea island ones.

The nice thing is though, that makes them a good brand to find ebay deals on.

So apologies to my Secret Santa, but the ties/pants don't really go with what I was thinking for this weekend.

 

Holiday thrift pics below. Be gentle. (The sleeves on the jackets are fine, but not what they should be due to time constraints/laziness).

Wow, totally missed this one.  Epic indeed.

No, but I'd definitely get it if in good shape and cheap.

I would probably have him do the sole then wear the shoe and see if it still needs widening. Then go back. For the price of the widening, you could probably pick up a shoe stretcher and some shoe stretching liquid on ebay. Then, do it at home in the future. I like to widen my shoes in little increments. You don't wanna overstretch them. Walking and your hot feet will also widen your shoes eventually, but a stretcher gets you started.

Post a picture of the flip side of the inner tag. Then we should be able to tell the date.
