I think I hate you second most after DM7!post #58341 of 13872812/24/12 at 11:43am
Re: Connections. I get that you find this stuff for steep discounts, but just to clarify, how much of your finds come from places other than sample sales/special invite only clearance events/dowager countess estate sales?

I'm willing to guess he "doesn't even thrift," based on the admitted provenance of the stuff he's posted in the past.Quote:post #58343 of 13872812/24/12 at 11:56ampost #58344 of 13872812/24/12 at 12:08pmpost #58345 of 13872812/24/12 at 12:52pmHappy Holidays everyone! Got an awesome Attolini find to share but I am about to head off for my holiday. Will show finds when I get back in around 2 weeks
On a very positive note, glad to see everyone hitting some nice stuff.
My thoughts of Goodwill:
- I hope Brian finds his epic haul of 36 sizes for himself. He is such a great guy I always feel sorry that stuff emanates from him for others but very little goes back to him due to lack of availability of his sizes.
- I look forward to Spoo and Eddie cleaning the clocks in regards to hauls / consignments of an epic nature.
- DM7 look forward to whatever crazy hauls you so happen to find.
- All friends and cool guys I have dealt with, a virtual beer for you
As for me, my New Years resolution is simple:
Those that have dealt with me over the months will all agree on one thing - I am the laziest most absent minded professor here. I promise to try harder to ship all your packets in future in a much more timely manner. Me naughty like that .post #58346 of 13872812/24/12 at 12:56pmpost #58347 of 13872812/24/12 at 1:02pm
Nothing too great, but picked up this pretty awesome Paul Stuart (recent 3 city) shirt. I usually leave these behind as they seem to do even worse then Slim Fit Brooks Brothers shirts (not really sure why) but this one was too cool.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
If anyone knows someone who can fit this shirt, ITS BIG!!! - PM me and I'll send it off to them . Too nice to leave behind

Almost found some amazing stuff in SF this morning, but the high zoot stuff was too damaged. Still came away with a pair of Santorelli dress slacks (my size), a S/S Lucky Brand shirt, and a flannel shirt from Austria.
At the second location, I came away with a Kangol trilby, an old Harris Tweed tie, and an Orvis navy blazer (44R? -might be available).

sorry to again de rail the thread but...
throughout my trades and dealings with all of you I have acquired quite a few nice items (most of them shirts) that just don't quite fit, mostly the sleeves are too short or a couple other problems but I was wondering if you all would be okay with me selling them to afford some modern tailor mtm shirts in a couple staple colors and a couple other items. I didn't trade/buy these from you with the intent of flipping them for a quick profit they just have for one reason or another not panned out. I would hate to upset one of you guys by you browsing eBay and coming upon one of the items you traded with me being sold.
so do I have your approval?
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!
