Fair enough. My thinking was more like "Oh, this jacket would have been 8 bucks at my local GW". So I thought about it for an hour, no one here expressed interest in it, it wasn't my size, so I let it go. I have interest now, so I'll pick it up. It'll probably end up traded on here if I get it. I'm still in need of building up my own wardrobe.
I had also found a super 150's blazer made by a name I couldn't track down. It was called Baroni (NOT BRIONI!) and the most prominent label was super 150's. I found a thread on AAAC and SF about them, but it looks like their suits were selling for 250-300 bucks new and fetch about 50-100 bucks on the bay so I might pick it up if it's a suit and maybe if it's an orphan in my size.
I guess the biggest take home for me is that I need to stop being so scared to make a mistake if I feel like something is right. It's a pretty good life lesson to learn and heck I'm still young!

Really? I'm curious why you think so. It had a lot of good details that had caught my eyes: throat latch, elbow patches, chest protector. It had a pretty good hand feel and no moth holes or rips inside.
I was also a little dissuaded because I saw this when I googled the name:
Edit: Also found my first T&A shirt. Did not cop. It was marked at $10.
(The collar was also frayed to oblivion!)

And I'm sad I lost the bid on this jacket. I thrifted the matching pants about a month ago. Would have been a suit! Then again, it's possible that the color is slightly different, so maybe it's a good thing :/
