    The same donor has a ton of suits there. Most trashed. Most also without matches. Figured some big guy out there would want a nice suit, right?

    I usually dont hold out much hope on half price days, but was pleasantly surprised today to find a nice vintage Southwick three piece (40r), a staple Armani suit in 44r, Hermes tie, a few cds (Smiths, Stones, NIN and, uh, Dinah Washington :embar:). Plus, a decent Philips cassette deck for the garage.

    Nice looking Watches. That they show signs of wear makes me lean to Legit. 2nd one is super nice.



    Garage Cassette deck is priorities in check. :slayer:

    Do they have a return policy for the watches? Can you Kop, take to Cartier store and return the same day if necessary?

    Also, if that Cartier is real, that would be 18K gold, I'm sure they have a testing stick there, no?

    The leg of the Roman numeral closest the the bottom dial is supposed to say "Cartier" I can't tell if that one does or not

    I do have a question about a pair of gats? I picked up, but I'll post that and a few meager finds tomorrow. Got three episodes into Stranger Things. Damn good. Hoping I can finish it tomorrow.
