    Sadly he said they were 44-46 L. Think entire business tycoon x Fashionishta's wardrobe. That's all I'll say. I don't want to spoil the epicness of his score.

    nothing sad about that :D Aren't you and I same size. 44 can easily be tailored down, personally I can pull L.

    Unrelated note I thrifted 10 (that is ten!!!!) RedWing shoes, brand new! Pics towards the end of the week, will include a vintage NOS Made in USA 8D wingtips with vintage shoe trees from 60ies, 10D lightly used Santoni captoes, and 2 Press sack suits.

    Yup, I'm a 42-44 R/L. The sad part was (well, for me anyway) is that I missed out on the haul (not that I would have gotten it anyway).

    FYI - If anyone wanted Allen Edmonds.... 2 for $200 is a hell of a deal for 2nds. Just ordered Malvern in suede, Player in dark suede, and hopefully a Bayfield Brown (waiting on confirmation) + a proxy for someone in Canada who I have bought for before! [​IMG]

    Well, it is not a pair of mint Lobbs, or a find of the century by SF standards. That said, I did just have my BEST HAUL EVER, and for my locale i think it is something.

    I will post pics of all stuffs later, but for now I will say this: 4 suits; Gianlucca Isaia Napoli, Southwick, Bernini, and Hugo Boss.

    Of those brands I have only ever seen Boss in Oregon previously.

    Okay, too much to photograph and not a thrift score but met up with someone who gave me the following to sell on Ebay.

    27 ties - Versace, Hermes, Charvet, Stefano Ricci, Zegna, etc.
    Pocket squares - Hermes,
    Shirts - RLPL, Zilli, Zegna, Versace, Brioni, etc.
    about 30 suits - Oxxford, Versace, Canali, Zegna, Paul Smith
    shoes - Prada, Gucci, Hermes, etc.
    Belts - Gucci

    shirts are mainly 17.5/44
    Suits mainly 46L
    shoes 12/13D

    I'm thankful as this is my only source of income! =)

    Just a suggestion, come up with prices you happy selling them for and make a Megathread here with something along the lines of "buy before ebay, no price drops, no offers, etc etc" so you dont get 20 PM's with people offering you 1/2 what you can sell it on ebay as it looks like your trying to max out profit due to income (which I think is called capitalism but a lot of people bitch and moan about on the forum).

    Hopefully you'll get a few sales before going to ebay and save ebay/paypal fees along with making a few guys on the forum happy. Plus dealing here is SO much nicer then ebay do to the stupid people that a) dont know there size, b) bitch about a single thread pull on the sleeve lining of a jacket and c) never actually pay after winning an auction

    Makes sense, I am a capitalist but also part of the team.

    I'm all for making a dollar but still passing on things below eBay prices.

    30 suits?

    they sell for $25-35? at goodwill usually depending on brand.......i don't have enough money in my bank account to even pick those up!

    im glad to say that for once, im glad i didn't find that score, or i'd have a lot of bigger and taller guys mad at me!

    Thrift fit... Wanted more color today and this cool shirt just came from CT (http://www.ctshirts.com/windsor for a great shirt + tie deal, FYI). Maybe a little fashion-forward for the office, but whatever

    Shirt: CT
    Tie: Thrifted (nothing special)
    Pants: Brooks Brothers Madison from hmmurdock
    Shoes: AE Arlington, thrifted

    After I left I wished I'd gone with navy pants, but oh well..
