    This is easily my favorite post in a long time, and my favorite thing anyone I know has said in days.

    Found Finamore there. Totes comparable.

    Hey Frenchy,

    Somebody donated a bunch of Canali suits in 40R at the Salvation Army on parliament, in case you're interested.

    Is this the camo I'm looking for? It looks authentic to my untrained eye. Internal tag was removed. Will take more pics in a bit.

    Three mainline Zegna shirts, size L, and one Eton, size 42. To be thrown into the box of to-be-consigned stuff. All in minty condition.

    Short-sleeve Arc'teryx in my size just in time for it to not be short-sleeve weather anymore.

    Is this Cantarelli, or do they just make RLPL suits?

    When selling to Buffalo Exchange I usually opt for store credit instead of the lower cash payout. They had a two Billy Reid shirts, but this one I really wanted.

    Ok, Seiko and Cartier from same store in separate bundled jewelry bags tonight. Rolex from different store yesterday. Don't think anyone would fake a Seiko 5 Automatic, the other two I'm still working on authenticity checking.
    Interesting my, the Rolex passes all checks so far with the exception of the serial number and design number under the band areas appears to have been intentionally sanded off. Still seems to be signs of having been engraved/etched. So either it was stolen and their tried removing identifying info or its a fake and was removed for whatever reason. Guess a dealer will have a better idea when cracked open.

    Cartier I know nothing about yet but that's because I got it a half hour ago. Going to research it more but it appears similar to ones listed on various sites as authentic.

    Actually been having a good few weeks (for me) recently. Have a number of "typical" items to post, but thought the following were fairly interesting.


    I think these are bowling shoes from the 80's, though am not positive. Don't appear to have been used much and did appear to have a market. I believe they are size 11.5.

    I watched a couple Round 2 videos last night so couldn't help but buy a Tommy. This looked interesting to me, but I don't really know if it is what everyone is after. Any thrift pros have tips on how to get the "6-" to erase from the tag on the second picture? My attempt was unsuccessful.

    Finally some ties that came in as part of e-thrifts. Hadn't seen Leonards before and really like them. Don't see myself wearing them to the office, but am hanging on to them for now. Had certainly heard of Drakes, but included them because I doubt I will ever wear them. They are available.

    to be clear, and I hope @HansderHund and Wes are taking the helm again this year (touches nose, says not it), the TT SS will be our own entity, though if you guys want to sign up for the main one as well :



    Barely missed out on this last year and excited for this years when does it usually start taking shape again?

    I'm totally in for the TT SS. I was too much of a n00b last year so it will be my first. Excited!
