    Not quite the right thread, but... Anyone know of a resource to identify a Brioni fabric from the tag code. This suit looks a bit like a fresco weave but I'd like to be sure before I advertise it as such

    2 cookbooks for myself, the Prada book is going to @DerekS for his little Ballette?(She-Baller?) His little girl.

    Couple of these just because, the Peoples book is a really great look back. Left a few books because I was trying to be good, and 30$ in new-to-me books was enough for one trip.

    this is super interesting... i wonder if folks are using the viewfinder or the LCD to compose?

    i think any latency with a digital viewfinder would bother me to no end, but maybe it's not an issue? i dunno... you got me reading reviews now lol...

    FWIW I made (what I thought was) a bad buy. Dated EZ DB unvented navy suit with replacement trousers (missed that in the store & disclosed very clearly in the listing). Somehow, it is selling. I thought I was going to take a bath on it (even though it was cheap). Of course EZ ≠ Corneliani, and mismatched suit ≠ orphan.

    Going to make money on it. Can't complain. So far I've had no trouble selling the dated stuff I've picked up, provided that the label is decent. Knock on wood.

    Folks. FOLKS.
    So I found that older EZ suit in 56L the other day, my first EZ. Last night on my way home from work I decided to swing through the places I've been hitting up daily. And I found all of this, in my size!
    More recent EZ, Tom James Corporate image 3 pc, Hart Schaffner & Marx designed by Christian Dior (is this legit? Seemed weird to me but decent quality is there), and Armani Le Collezioni. Also an Aquascutum blazer.

    Pretty sure they're all from the same donor, as the TJ has his name embroidered inside the jacket and typed on the label in pocket. In one of the other pieces I found same guy's business cards. Half tempted to reach out to see if he has anything else he was getting rid of, but realize there could be negative implications if he didn't want them donated (nasty divorce, overlook during spring cleaning, etc).

    Also found some NWT Abercrombie chinos that will sell, nwot Boss made in Italy chinos/jeans, and some Armani exchange jeans as well. All either current or recent offerings.

    A couple shirts as well.

    Pics as I know posts are useless without them! In the process of getting a torso mannequin so I can take more legit pics.

    Thanks for looking! I know this isn't amazing like some of what all y'all pull in on the daily, but I am quite tickled, especially because the girl who rang me out either a) was daft and didn't know how to work the register or b) thought I was cute... Because she literally charged me about half of the already ridiculously awesome price I was planning on paying based on tags. And there are no sales or discount days at this place. Haha.
