facepalm.gif Mistakes are bound to happen.  Although I've improved by leaps and bounds in what I pick up (didn't really start off TOO bad though, definitely didn't consider Stafford ......... more like Burberry and old Canali), I'm still very much learning.  Thanks for all the help fellas. 

 

Still happy about that tie!

So I went back for that S120s Trussini pinstripe, but some a-hole took the pants and orphaned the jacket.  At first I thought maybe the jacket didn't fit him but the pants did, then wondered if they were taking the pants and coming back for the jacket, which would probably be left alone and then discounted soon. Unhappy, had a couple people interested who lost out. Then again, I probably wouldn't have gone in there again and I came out with a S130s Canali and a couple of things.

Always seen the CD sections, but never thought of looking.  Probably a jazz and classical music gold mine!  Have you ever found any SACDs?

This is awesome. I believe that current NY Times street fashion photography pioneer Bill Cunningham was at this show.

Banana Republic Suede Coat. Medium. Unavailable until my wife tries it on (it is a mens coat).

 

Im confused, is ur wife a man? If its a Men's coat, why would she have to try it on?

Maybe I just need clarification.

I would not shun away from all older Burberry or Canali.  I'm not sure what ur intentions are with thrifting, such as flipping, trading, eBaying ect, BUT as I do flip a lot of what I thrift, I can tell you in my experience recently with an older label Burberrys suit it went for 80+ and a Canali went for 75+.  Both older labels, both purchased under 6$ a piece. So that being said, in my certain circumstance, I don't always pass on those.  I know they will flip.

fit > whether or not it works for your body type > whether or not the colors work for your skin tone > whether or not the styling is current or at least not dated > quality > brand

My wife is a woman smile.gif but she's six feet and built like a gazelle. So men's coats with long arms sometimes fit her quite well. In any case she doesn't like it. It's too damn heavy. So available.
