    Traveled to Columbus Ohio for a meeting and hit a thrift on the way to my hotel. Just to let you know I am serious this time 8 down!

    So if I wear an old pair of shorts and write "Juicy" on them in marker and take a selfie of my ass in a thrift store would that count?

    Found a Loro Piana Super 150's suit today, new with tag... Didn't even remember that it was in the scavenger hunt.

    Of course, I picked it up, so will be sure to picture it with the card...

    A little big for you, sorry... [​IMG]


    As I noticed the Loro Piana tag sticking out from the rack, another customer said, "It's a 56!". I replied that I knew someone who might be interested... No sense letting others in on the whole Euro sizing thing!

    I think I'll be waiting for my mannequin to show up before I list this thing. Must make it look awesome!

    I have just sent all of the current hunters a message proposing a change in the donation for this round. Please check your messages and let me know what you think.

    I would like to recruit as much participation as possible for this hunt, but I will need your help.

    If you are just joining us, let me know and I will send you the details of the prize donation via private message.

    Hi Guys,

    I received your email, Cap, good stuff. Rather than participate in the hunt I am going to auction off a NWT Drake's Garza Grossa Grenadine Tie starting at $0.99 and donate the proceeds to two different causes - the cause Cap mentioned in his email, and the other half of the proceeds will go to The Giving Lungs Foundation which my very close friend launched a couple of months ago after his father passed away from lung complications. The auction will start tonight around 9pm eastern and will run for 10 days. Now only if we had some Put This On exposure for such a great cause...:D

    edit - Put This On will be including the auction in their eBay roundup - thanks again, guys.

    Very nice touch suited. PTO would be great exposure. To piggy back on the email, I may not be able to participate in the hunt (maybe try a few entry's), but am adding to the donation pot via monetary funds.

    Update. The pot is growing, not including the $5 per entry, which will be added later.

    Delft has been marking their wares since the 1600's, so unless it says Delph on the back I would guess no.
