GMMCL, some of those Hermes are actually wearable! Great stuff.

The scroll wheel on my mouse is broken because of EddieVs haul drool.gif

I probably won't get out until Thursday because of work baldy[1].gif

Feeding the leather of my EBay purchase that showed up yesterday. A nearly unworn pair of late 70s or early 80s mountaineering boots. These things are amazing, and are exactly what I was looking for.

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

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

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 spam[1].gif AVAILABLE spam[1].gif

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...

I used the proceeds from about $50 in thrift shop purchases sold on EBay to buy a $700+ wheelset for my bike for $450.

Now on to some new components so I can rebuild my custom steel cyclocross frame!

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.

That tie haul was insane. Congrats! And I would have not risked leaving the bin either.
