Good idea, but I'd keep "penny" in the title as well (Im sure its just a typo but Burgundy is spelled wrong). Cool looking shoes though!

I'm glad you liked it!  I wanted to put more in there but couldn't stuff more into the box.  I hope the vintage beige Gucci pants fit!  They were a cool find.  (P.S. the Tango snowman tie was just for shits & giggles since you specified no ties or ps, but I figured it was a holiday tie, so wth.)  I'm glad the tweed fits you, it was a little nerve-wracking with the measurements.

 

Happy holidays, man!

If you can afford it, I'd grab the suit. Someone here (or if you want to flip it) will want it at cost + shipping or toss it on ebay and make $. Either way its a great deal and worst case you can return it.

ALSO - What did they have in RLBL, anything S or XS or 36S? Feel free to PM if so.

+100000000

Re the SP - this is an SC. Still, though, yeah, 350 would be reasonable if it were for me. At a 41R, though (IIRC), it's nowhere nearrrr in my ballpark - I'm a bigger dude.

I'd be happy to proxy for the regulars here if you want to PM me (and it's still available). Cost+gas+shipping. I briefly considered ebaying, but it's not worth it - no guarantee it would go for THAT MUCH and if it goes for only $350-400 then I LOSE money after tax, ebay fees and shipping. More than happy to help out someone here though. smile.gif

The RLBL they had a bunch of stuff. Mostly outerwear, vests, shirts, misc stuff. No pants that I saw, and no suits/etc. There were some smalls, I don't think any XS. If you want me to look for anything in particular for you in a small and maybe proxy, I can - drop me a PM, but be warned they're all $200 or $300.

 

+1

 

I didn't think about it (still stuck in my noobish ways?), but same.  I saw lots of stuff in small and XL, mostly outerwear and shirts.  That sick black parka in S fit me really well, but was still $400 I think (though no tax) and definitely not a short.  Also, there was a John Varvatos unstructured unlined cotton blazer in 36R that I should've pm'ed acosbysweater about, but it was made for someone with much bigger taper and shoulders than I have.  Fit was a little weird on me, and I'm pretty much a standard 36R.  Anyway, let me know if anyone wants a proxy.  Price on the Varvatos was still crazy expensive (for a thrifter), I don't even remember -- maybe like 500?  Hence why I didn't think about it.

This got lost in review and the holiday crush. Requoting for awesomeness. But not before I dibsed the LP. devil.gif

APB, dudes: Due to an AWESOME hookup by John Sullivan (aka Sully, who kicks ass -- everyone who is not a 42R should trade with him), I am now the proud owner of a killer Davies & Sons DB, dual vent, ticket pocketed blue SC. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I'd like to swap the buttons out for MOP and turn it into a blazer. I have enough for the sleeve buttons and 2 of the 6 chest buttons. If anyone happenbs to have a full set of buttons for a DB jacket, please take my moneys.

+1 for sully. The guy ships stuff faster than I could find the trade piece. Awesome guy. Trade with him

Merry christmas! and i'm sure Sully is legit, he certainly seems to be, BUT I know its been said before, and I'll say it again, OCooney is the most generous dude in the thrift thread, period. Not a big poster, but when he does its allll freshness, plus I know hes just sitting on awesome stuff he never posts :)

These are the Artioli's I kopped... I tried just pasting a pic but its tiny... Oh well, heres the link. These are sooo dope it hurts, and 102 shipped? Thats a retarted price, just check the other listings, or ask your boy spoo.

PSA: Ill repost in the buy/sell/trade thread, but if anyone wants a pair of size 32x36ish Helmut Lang Selvedge jeans give me a shout. I've worn them once, and the previous owner probably wore them about the same amount of time, they are still crispy as hell. I think they'll stretch some, but in short I think they're just too skinny for my fat ass... Ideally id trade for some comprable denim in terms of quality and wear.

HAPPY FESTIVUS, EVERBODY!

Damn that Secret Santa bottle of Creed is extremely generous! fantastic stuff.

 

Don't hesitate to deal with Sully/John Sullivan, great guy, still owe him my end of a trade and hes been nothing less than a gentleman

post #58421 of 134557

Found this a while ago in the women's coats section. Dilemma: fits me perfectly, but its also worth some money I think...
