    Would you guys pick up a 95 cashmere/5 silk plaid Kiton at $319 to flip? (Or trade for amazing things that are in my size plus a small amount of cash).

    There would be no question if it were my size, but it's a 42 L.

    And I'd normally not ask such questions, of course, lest they enrage the group's delicate sensibility. But since I'm not drunk, I need a good reason to make a bad decision.

    If it's a 42L and modern styling I'd def pick it up (it's also my size so I'd be doubly in trouble)! Someone here will trade for it easy, I can't say how it will flip as I've never been blessed to sell anything of that quality.

    If it's my measurements you can always make an easy $80 for a proxy [​IMG]

    As for a flip, If it's a good cut and in desirable color and/or pattern you won't lose money on the deal, but how high it goes for in the end is hard to say. You can always test the waters by posting pics and measurements here to see what people will offer.

    Do those sell well? I have one that my neighbor gave me just sitting in my closet. It's something big like a 44 (I'm a 38)

    So I've given up on catching up to the thread... What did I miss over the last week? I've only been out looking a couple times, but I've found a few things. Pics tonight.

    Let me put it this way: I just dropped that kind of cash on Kiton, and I'd STILL :fence: Hammer for that SC, if the length is 32 or under. Having said that, from a pure ROI perspective, the Ebay sold listings seem to suggest it's a good investment, but there are lower-end outliers.

    To the death my friend! You're looking at a genuine member of the University of London Union Fencing squad!

    I don't know if I'll pull the trigger on the Kiton. I probably should. I'll let it sit a bit, though I suspect it will be gone tomorrow.


    Pics?

    Lots of frustration today, but I did find this orphan [​IMG]

    But.....


    [​IMG]


    I also found the darker, double breasted version, in suit form. Bought in 1987.


    [​IMG]

    I'm considering going back tonight, but will definitely be back tomorrow to look for the pants. There was also an untagged navy DB with the same hallmarks, but I couldn't find the pants.


    The orphan could be paired with jeans, right? Savile Row on top, Ed Hardy on the bottom? [​IMG]

    EDIT: He's the CFO of a huge mortgage company. Figures.


    p2p: 22.6
    sleeve: 26
    shoulder: 18
    length: 31.5

    Pinstripe orphan is tough to pair. I picked up a wicked cool DB/dual vent/ticket pocket MTM/bespoke orphan with every intention of wearing it as a casual separate. I'm very close to re-donating it (non-Savile Row, so no name recognition). OTOH, I also picked up a Henry Poole orphan, single breast, dual vent, ticket pocket, flannel stripe orphan, and sold it for a surprising price to a dude in Japan, who I'm sure is rocking it like there's no tomorrow. EDIT: I mention the sale only to suggest that Savile Row orphans can be desirable, and should not be left behind. HAMMER: If we're talking about former athletic lives in the UK, I'm a former member of the Worcester College, Oxford Men's 1st VIII, so I'll row you into submission! (How does that not sound nearly as intimidating as him knowing how to dice me with a sabre?)

    McSkeet jacket with a little enhancement so you can fully appreciate the pattern.

    Not exactly an overcheck... What do you think I should call that, a feather check? Paisley check? Skeet check?

    Check online because Value Village is having another 50% sale next week. Spend so much and they will give you a 30% coupon to use on a different day. found that Calgary wasn't good for luxury labels but for women's wear and jeans for the bay. Buck apiece not bad for jeans to flip.

    i think i goofed on a lilith jacket. made in france. caught my eye, but it honestly, it didn't impress me, it seemed like a thin, boiled wool. Since it was a women's coat and I never heard of the label before, I passed. What are your guys thoughts on the brand?

    Also picked up a Tori Richard shirt because of how much Fueco likes them. Don't know if I'll be able to pull it off, but the buttons are awesome and it fits pretty well! Unfortunately, my cellphone camera is not able to capture this awesomeness so you'll have to take my word for it!
