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?

It looks a little skinny to me.  Here is another one that is cheaper.

So i know its in bad taste to list ebay listings in this thread, but this is what ive accumulated over the last few months going out a couple times a month. Easier to post the link than host all te pics and retype what the items are. If anyone wants anything let me know and we can work something out on the side.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/chris1995gt/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

A lot of 44R suits and sport coats, some NOS Hanover Shell ptb's in 6.5. Few NWT drakes cashmere ties...

Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid? FDIC only insures up to $250,000 (someone correct me if I'm wrong). If you have that much money you should know (or have someone who knows) the best way to protect your money. Earning it is only half the battle.

Money Market accounts show up as checking when using an ATM. That could be the case here. Interest bearing, and available to withdraw when needed is nice.

ChetBakerSings takes far better photos than I, but thought I'd throw a couple up here as well. Thanks again to Wes for the overcoat! Shoes are nothing great, something to walk through snow/slush.

 I like the lower half. The rest seems rather "meh" to me. But then, I'm not really a sport coat kinda guy.

Love both of those fits.

Todays finds are a couple more Robert Graham same donor. And a few chambray shirts for myself, Steven Alan Acne and a cool one with metal buttons from Rag Bone.

Ok, not really a thrift fit because there isn't a single picture of me. I didn't have time to set up the camera so I just took some quick photos.

Didn't get a good shot of the pants, but they are heavy flannels.

You do realize we are in the "classic menswear" forum right?

I have those AE Sanfords too.  Love them.  What color do you use for polish?  If I remember right, they are considered "Oak" but AE discontinued the color?

Thanks,

 Does that mean I have to fall in line and agree with everyone else? Is this style or "get in line"?

 

 I'm not a fan of that particular sport coat. Does that mean that I'm not a "classic menswear" sort of guy? Who cares?
