    That's not the Lavin you're looking for . . . But great score on the Cappelli!

    Passed on a lot of Stafford suits today. Good move? There were 2 or 3 of them.

    Edit: none fit anyways and I'm not looking to flip clothes and such so it was just out of curiosity.

    ^ it is not the Lanvin you are looking for.

    If anyone has any questions, 99.5% of the Lanvin in a thrift store is not the Lanvin you are looking for.

    Hell, I left behind the only real Lanvin tie I've found in a thrift as it was hideous and super wide. Shop based on style and quality, not soley on brand.

    [​IMG] Mistakes are bound to happen. Although I've improved by leaps and bounds in what I pick up (didn't really start off TOO bad though, definitely didn't consider Stafford ......... more like Burberry and old Canali), I'm still very much learning. Thanks for all the help fellas.

    Still happy about that tie!

    So I went back for that S120s Trussini pinstripe, but some a-hole took the pants and orphaned the jacket. At first I thought maybe the jacket didn't fit him but the pants did, then wondered if they were taking the pants and coming back for the jacket, which would probably be left alone and then discounted soon. Unhappy, had a couple people interested who lost out. Then again, I probably wouldn't have gone in there again and I came out with a S130s Canali and a couple of things.

    Always seen the CD sections, but never thought of looking. Probably a jazz and classical music gold mine! Have you ever found any SACDs?
