I'm pretty happy with by $400, which will, um, almost pay for my expenses in LA (yes, I bought the jeans, and yes, that may have been a poor use of a little less than two months of cell phone bills).

Wow, amazing stuff.  I especially love the polo pants (I'd make an exception to my no-pleats rule for those) and the Paraboot shoes.

Anyway, some belated brags and/or better pics of past brags. Mostly the highlights, but even that's a pretty substantial number of pics. So be warned! Click on the spoiler ONLY if you have a robust internet connection! Still figuring out my new camera, so the whitebalance sucks in a few of these. But it's still better than the old point and shoot.

MOST OF THIS STUFF IS SPOKEN FOR OR MINE. PLUS, I'M BURIED AT WORK AND NOT ABLE TO RESPOND TO PMs. IF YOU MUST HAVE SOMETHING, FEEL FREE TO PM, BUT IT MAY TAKE ME A WHILE TO RESPOND.

I got my Kiton  2 weeks ago on a really nice 7 fold, actually it was my first 7 fold and kiton all in one :)  Picked up a really nice Oxxford tie at that same store that day.   I've pretty much got all the major tie brands the last 2-3 months. 

 

I just haven't gotten around to selling many of them yet, I probably have anywhere from 50-70 ties in a box waiting to put up.

It was cool, but even though it was my size (44), it was quite snug for me. 

 

I don't keep much that I find, but.....

 

 

 

Renovation update. Got the new floors sanded and 3 coats of finish applied this weekend. A few more coats to do tonight, in between ebay packages. Should be moving back in on Thursday. Touch up paint and a little trim work remains before I can finally assemble my new closet system...which was the initial start of this project. All of my home improvement projects spiral wildly out of control.

$2.99 deep clearance at Kohls, plus we had Kohls cash, so it was actually free. If you've seen my thrifting/ebay area, you would know the graphic is fitting of a fella like me.

 

Also got this one for $1.99. Not sure which one I like best...it's very close. smack.gif

Wes and other experienced eBayers: Found this torso-stand combo for $80, am thinking about going in for one. Does it look serviceable to you? Is there anything in the page that says to you it sucks/would break?

I'm only slightly nervous about the wooden legs. I have a coat stand with that style "tripod" that I have had to repair twice. Of course it carries a bit more weight. Otherwise looks like a decent set up.

I have that exact ETRO shirt listed on ebay in a 42 right now.
