Styleforum Top Picks
Hey all, wondering if anyone can help me out. Out here in Michigan pickings are slim, so I'm hoping I can call on the goodwill I've built up over the past few years. I'm looking for another staple suit, around 38R/30W. One of the ones I've had is actually getting uncomfortably tight (finally gained some weight after all this working out lol), and the other got damaged while I was moving apparently, leaving me with only one "alright" suit to interview for OCI with (it's striped though, I'd prefer solid or subtler stripes).
Can anyone help me out? I've got one OCI soon and then my big one in a few months and I'd prefer to have more than one "alright" suit to interview with. I'm willing to spend $250 or so, although I'd like to spend less. Hopefully someone has something to help me out. Hope everyone is doing well too! Enjoying this first year of law school, hopefully this summer I'll be in a place where I can rejoin the thread with some meaningful contributions.
OCI in 1L year?
I'd be happy to help, but everything I've got is around a 44
Is this the label I'm looking for?

Diffusion. I think Brian was able to successfully flip them.
Not ideal, but still easier to flip then 95% of Brooks Brothers shirts people pickup. You will have less luck running an auction then BIN OBO. Someone will come along and pay 30-40 for it if you give it enough time no problem. I sold a boring red stripe on for $25 but then that fun blue flower one below for $60
I have one up now.... (should get an offer over $50 sooner or later), just waiting....Robert Graham R&G Gray Paisley Casual Mens Dress Shirt Size L
And this one sold for $60
Anyway, all are AVAILABLE
Thanks, guys. I'll have to swing back by and check it out again. I also have a wide-ish one in my closet that I haven't worn in years...might have to throw it up on the bay too.
Nice cameras... I would've loved to find those about ten years ago. Now, I'm just trying to get rid of my old Bronica system...
eddievddr10 can now answer the age-old question for us: do clothes bruise when they fall off the back of a truck. I've bookmarked his eBay page for bidding.
Nothing to brag about, but I was down in Florida visiting my grandparents last week. The Marshalls near the Nordstrom rack at 20669 Biscayne has a NWT Brioni tux--very modern and slim--marked down from $6,000+ to $499. It's a 40L, and so too slim in the shoulders for me.
They also have a PRL made-in-Italy tweed suit--beige herringbone--with flat-front pants in a 40R. Also $499, and also too slim for me. But I've never seen anything like it, and someone should snatch it up.
Thanks for all the love, dudes. When I hit the first one, I threw it over my arm. Then the second one and I needed to free my hands up, so I started putting them around my neck. Then my neck filled up and I had a moment of panic: Do I run for a shopping basket and risk that someone else vultures in and starts looking through the bin? In the end, I just hung them from every vertical surface on my body. The checkout dude -- who's gotten to know my name and clearly thinks it's hilarious how much I shop there -- joked that I should have just bought the whole bin. Hilarious, dude. Hilarious.
Anyway, all are AVAILABLE
That tie haul was insane. Congrats! And I would have not risked leaving the bin either.
Not a bad lunch excursion.

Who knows when I will have pics on this...I still am trying to catch up from last Friday.
Nice camera equipment. I actually picked up a pristine Canon A1 with 50mm 1.8 attached last week for $25.
That lens probably isn't worth a great deal to flip but should be nice to use and for $4 why not :)
Always be on the look out for used lenses, the money is on the fast ones if that Sigma was a 2.8 it would be worth a lot more.
50mm in the 1.2 range are $$$ as well
With a growing M4/3 camera market a lot of people buy older fast glass and put on their digital cameras.
