I have to agree. He sent me an amazing Navy blue flannel St. Laurie Suit that fits perfectly, he tossed a nice patterned purple tie in the pocket, and only asked me to pay shipping! All around stand up guy.
On another note I found a pair of Stetson black cap toe oxfords today
Can you tell me which shoes are Allen Edmonds and which are Stetson?
I also picked up two suits that under most circumstances I would have passed on, 2 Brooks Brothers 346 Suits in sizes 44R and 43R. The only reason I got these at $12.50 each was because they were brand new. No tags but the pants were not finished and the all the pockets, breast, and side, were sewn shut on both. I figured they had to at least be worth $12.50 brand new.
Was I wrong to buy these 346 suits? I know that they are of questionable quality but they must be flippable new right?
Lastly I got an unstructured beige cotton HIJKLM UVWXYZ Jacket. Also new without tags (breast pocket sewn shut and extra buttons in baggie in left breast pocket) This was the tag
Can anyone tell me anything about this? I have never seen it before.
I also passed on a woman's Orvis because it was made in my wife's home country, CHINA, and even she thinks that makes it crap.
JOHN LEWIS' in-house brand.
Is it crap?
I mean it's my size and I plan to keep it not flip it, just wondering if it is any good.
I realized too late that too make that any challenge at all I should have cropped the photo so you couldn't see the color of the inside of the shoe as it was a dead giveaway. Otherwise the shoes appear almost identical. Are the Stetsons worth $5.95? They are too big for me, 11 D/B. They are in great condition with very little wear.
If it fits, feels good, and fills a void in your wardrobe that needed filling, then keep it. If you're buying because you think it's cool, but you wouldn't really wear it much, if at all, then bad buy.
Bogner womens wool/suede jacket. Wasn't sure if it was a good brand or not so I took a chance based on the feel it- looks like it was a good move.
NWT Burberry cable knit sweater made in Italy
And these Wolverine Boarhide boots. I literally found these in a parking lot outside of the thrift store. Some guy came out of one of the shops in this plaza and told me a guy had thrown them on the ground, gotten in his car and driven off. Apparently this guy and his girlfriend were in a heated argument and he ditched his boots. They look new but the soles are falling apart. Like actually falling apart. They pretty much fit and they fill a gap in my shoe collection so I'll have them fixed and put them in the rotation.
