Damn Spoo, Congrats!!!!!!! Fucking sick! That really is a lot of hard work and dedication. Good for you. As of today, I'm starting a 1969 Camero SS fund. Hopefully in 5-10 years, I'll get to post some pics. biggrin.gif

I always just thrifted for myself, but I am now rethinking the whole flipping game.

As I have posted earlier, I am new at all of this and read a little bit than went nuts and bought 4 jackets on eBay. So my latest is a blue blazer, after I bid I found a thread on it and it looks like I should have done some more research. The listing was "Tom James by Oxxford Clothes Men Hand Made Blue Blazer 44 R Functional Buttons" When I searched for this I came across a thread that told me these are owned by the same parent company but have exactly nothing to do with each other. I have paid for the jacket and received it but now feel a little cheated. The sad thing is I probably would have been perfectly happy without the "by Oxxford" portion, but thinking I was getting an insane deal then realizing the deceptive language I feel stupid.

 

Here is the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321119812349?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

 

Grand total was $45.50 shipped. I was thinking of leaving a poor rating because the thread I found said it was deceptive to tie the two together.

 

What do you guys think? Am I just being a little whiny bitch and need to suck it up and do better research next time?

That's not a bad looking blazer. If it fits you nicely, I don't think it's money poorly spent. Do you know if it's made with Holland and Sherry fabric? I had one of those awhile ago and really liked, never quite fit right though and ended up getting rid of it.

Either he got the measurements mixed up or that was built for someone with gorrilla shoulders and t rex arms.

This thread usually makes me shake my head in amazement, but the Ferrari...just incredible. Congrats!

if you don't mind me asking Spoo, how long did it take to get there? were there any doubts &/or other temptations along the way, and if so, what?

Just the rack, but I was literally on my way to buy a rack at ikea. This one is bigger, better, and free.

Wow, Spoo. Congratulations and thankyou for the backstory. Pretty motivating, w/e the endeavor or means.
