Over $500 I think.  Probably melt value.

 

Found a Brioni tie (my first Brioni in the wild) and a pair of J&M Crown Aristocraft longwings.  Will be a restore project after I get a shipment of Saphir in next week.

Since these are still out of flipping range, and they are not my size, behold the glory of Marshalls. Both were on final markdown for $657.

I thought I'd throw a couple of pictures of the new "hat rack" I put up in my closet as I was able to do it for under €15. It was a pretty simple project made from shelving brackets and fabric covered styrofoam balls.

In the spirit of the bragging thread, I should mention that I managed to win on a month when the prize was $500 instead of the usual $50! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


So what's the moral obligation here (a styleforum gentleman's bet)? Only items you thrifted yourself or are we doing thrift trades as well?

Wish it fit, it's about a 38s.

That's a great idea!  Must have a spacious closet to be able to do that.  Do you worry about exposing your hats to potential vermin?  It's something I'm paranoid about.

BB slim fit OCBD for myself.

And hows this for a BB tie? mwink[1].gif

AppleMark
I was at the BB store on Michigan literally 2 days ago fondling a tie very similar to this one, $80? No thanks. $1.50? Yes please.

Nice trees and I like the tie. I've been finding some good bb ties lately, I just wish the middle section of their ties wasn't so narrow, makes it about impossible for me to get even a decent knot.

COAT is Boglioli's casual line. Boglioli makes ETRO's suits/jackets.
