@hbkshin, those look great! What kind of camera are you using though? It looks like it's paying more attention to the background than the stuff on the mannikin which is why the colors seem to look a bit off to me.

It's a Chester Berrie. I paid $4.50 for it. It is near perfect condition. Also is very close to fitting. The shoulders and sleeves are good. I think it's a bit too long though. 


I work for surgeons. I need to find a jacket with surgeons cuffs just so I can be like "YOU GAIZ NEED THESE!!!".


They'd probably laugh at me as they walk to the OR in scrubs...

No no, sales and scaling pricing down, is common…the original photo you posted looked like they gave you a scale of pricing that they will charge, depending on the day.  Its a bit counterproductive to advertise your high end pricing along with your low end pricing to just have it be determined on a random day.

 

Now if there is a single price posted on items, and then the store runs  a 50% off day, this looks much more in our favor to know what we will be paying.  But to have a range of 20$ +/- of both prices listed all the time, you will always feel ripped off no matter the day (except 50% off day).

 

Not sure if all that made sense. I just find it weird to post both high and low pricing on an item instead of a single price and then run sales to only scale down from there.

Gotcha. It wasn't my original item, so I missed the photo of the price tags.

I absolutely love the fact that your grandmother chose to go bold with her top. Your fit is brilliant and good on you for taking out out like that.

Just got done hooking up my favorite thrift find of the day. Pioneer Elite PRO-930 HD 43" plasma TV with side sound bars.

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Plasma/PRO-930HD




Needed a tv for my unfinished basement where we moved the comfortable couches to make room for the nice looking ones in the half basement (house is a 4 level split). Picked this up for a song so I figured why not. It's nicer than the family room TV. laugh.gif

I also want to say, before I joined this fantastic community and started soaking in it's infinite wisdom, my only pair of "dress shoes" was a pair of BB suede bucs. Warning, lots of pictures in the spoiler.dit, since the spoilers don't seem to be working, I have removed them       <snip> 

 

<-- sleepily pokes head up and looks around, encounters eazye's shoe collection,  rubs eyes and blinks

 

I approve.  Nice variety!  :cheers:  Keep it up and you'll be in legit shoostravaganza territory. :decisions:

Finally found some stuff at RueLaLa on which to spend my credit - only have stock website pics to share:

  

spoiled cuz they're stock photos... (Click to show)

Bobby Jones "The Range" jacket: 

 

Hickey Freeman cotton polo: 

 

 

  

...when all was said and done, cost me $37.80 including shipping.  (the Bobby Jones jacket was originally $175, and the HF originally $125...not bad at all).

You're the one on the right, correct?

But seriously, great picture.

Ended up getting a few things today. Thanks for the help with the coats earlier. I ended up leaving both the barneys and the spiewak.

 

Here's the spiewak for anyone that might want it. It's an XXL and I can proxy if it's still there.

 

This was a great find for me though!

 

HF Coat. It comes down past my knees. What is that, a top coat?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, fine, it's not as good as 38R's fit pic, but I actually had been looking for something like this so I'm psyched! I need to have the sleeves shortened a little bit. It's also a little big on the shoulders, but should be fine if I'm wearing something thick underneath. Otherwise, I'll turn it into something else!

 

 

 

Then I found this guy. It's a first for me. I like the pattern :)
