Yeah, this. I have tried Voler. I cant stand their jerseys and the bibs are just okay IMO. My go to bibs are Rapha (purchased at deeeeeep discount), but I only have one pair and they are getting pretty worn out. I'd love to try Assos but cannot kop at retail or even close to it.

@capnwes Congrats man! Best of luck going full time thrifting! (not that you need it, luck is a concept invented by the weak to explain their failures - Ron Swanson)

Left these behind yesterday - vintage Burberry duffle coats, all toggles, hoods, etc. too much wear around the cuffs (could see the nova check through the camel color wool) and a few moth bites, couldn't justify $40 each.

One thing I appreciate is eBay helping with fees and removing neg feedback. As of late I have not needed to plead my case as heavy when requesting feedback removal. Especially when buyers are extorting you.

I'll brag because he won't - GMMcL is a stand up guy and hooked me up strong!

@Dig & Spoo,   Im not trying to be funny or piss you off. But, the ferrari 458 is currently under factory recall, for spontaneously combusting due to faulty craftsmanship. (youtube if you don't believe me)  430's also have the same problem of bursting in to flames.   i seriously say this:  buy a lambo, a Porshe? fack, buy anything that is proven to be safe.

make money, but please be safe. 

edit: 360's combust too.

not saying this for the sake of envy, i am a car guy. and i want you guys to take care.  safety first.....

 

And WES,  congrats, you can do it bro.:fonz:

This baller dinner jacket. I wish it were my size. Tentatively dibsed.


How is the person who dibsed this going to wear it? I have a similar corneliani dj that fits like a glove but is impossible to wear without matching pants.

Here's a video clip of a Tesla on fire:

Even the safest car in the world is a death trap if one doesn't know how to drive...

I could never wear something with "Side Elastic Pleated Denim" in the name.

typical Canadian snobbery!!!

We call these church jeans where I grew up in Pennsylvania. A perfect dress jean, pleated to perfection. It would be perfectly acceptable with that fine dinner jacket.

I think if you're doing jeans with a tux you need to do it like this

and you need to have the cachet of being Ralph Lauren to pull it off well.
