    What size? Dibs if it's a 16.5 and not a bizzare color/pattern.

    Yeah, their AE selection is pretty limited. The do have the Hinsdales and Hales in black, at least at Potomac Mills.

    The term 'grail' is thrown around a lot here...

    Left behind a Charvet myself today, the collar had a little tear in it that could've easily been repaired. Starting to think about going back for it -_-. Also finally got some god.damn. pants. Just some basic BBs but at least this pair can fill a gaping hole for my casual wear for a bit until I can get some stuff moved.

    I've gotten a lot of interest in the Charvet, but from my experience, damaged stuff doesn't go very far. I generally only pick stuff up in excellent+ condition.

    I'd say that counts as a grail find. :nodding:

    Nice find! You'll have no problem finding that beauty a home as I know a bunch of guys (myself included) who that would fit. Sadly my closet is at max. capacity. Need to thin down the herd.

    Are you guys pissed at me for flooding the thread with crap like Brioni and Oxxford?

    I really thought the Bijan was a big deal [​IMG]

    nah, it's just that Bijan is total crap. Luckily, it looks like it might fit me. Oh, alright, I'll be a gentleman and take it off your hands for cost price. But only this once.

    Brooks Brothers made USA cotton sweater, size 44 - Available
    Not teribly expensive, but nice enough I thought someone here might want it for spring. I'm not looking to get rich off this.

    I found some shoes also.

    Someone paid AE to have these re-crafted and they've never been worn. I don't get it.

    I posted these last spring and really wanted to make them work, but they’re just a little too short for me. I figured I’d give you guys a chance at them before they go on eBay.

    Nice pickups. I've learnt my lesson with French Cuff shirts (aka dont buy them anymore as they are always too long) and the chest is a little big. Nice shirt though!

    So I should or shouldn't pick up the Alain figarets for flipping? They were a normal size, in excellent to nwot condition, and 10-13 each.

    Well, just damn! I drove down to check out the Unique thrift on Gallows Rd. It sounds as if I would have had a better time at Nordies than at Unique. I picked up a measly lower end Hickey-Freeman Collection sport coat (fused :fu: ), a cashmere/wool 70/30 blend scarf (Blue!) and a pair of Levis 518 Juniors/Superlow/Skinny for SWMBO. They look fine! Otherwise, it was a disappointing trip. I was hoping for better. Again, very little in Small and every shoe in stock had a square toe so I'm SOL as usual.

    They kept making announcements that coats, sweaters and jackets were half price. I thought my $6.99 H-F would ring at $3.50 but they had different ideas of what a jacket was. I tried to explain but... :brick: it was no good. I bought it anyway. Nothing picworthy.

    I don't know if anyone else has had luck at Unique but for an hour's drive, I think I'll pass from now on.
