    Passed on some Bruno Magli heels. I don't know enough about women's shoes to know if they are worth it or not.

    T&A's sea island cotton is second only to their super 200s, so if you're gonna flip it, don't undersell it.

    Mine was black, super slim fit with a spread collar. I was originally going to list it at £49 BiN but decided on an auction with a start of £19.99. I ended up with the original bidder in Finland slugging it out with another guy in Japan and it ended on £112

    I will shortly be photographing a bad-ass Connock & Lockie 3-piece, medium weight worsted suit in black, tan and beige puppytooth check. Tailored in 1987, you'd think it just walked out of their door, it is in phenomenal condition. It has full working cuffs with leather-covered football buttons to the coat and waistcoat. I doubt the coat has ever been fastened, the buttonholes are mint and as stiff as a board. Oh, it cost me £7.50

    Nas tops my chart of overrated rappers. Biggie is on the list as well, but His music was just so much... better.

    Nice finds! Care to share what other LPs you got that you hadn't heard of? Spooky Tooth is one of my favorite bands. They did a killer version of Tobacco Road. That Small Faces LP is a good one too. Been looking for that one for some time. I had it years ago but one of my friends, while in an altered state of mind, decided to use the vinyl as an ash tray while it was still spinning! :fu: Let me know if you ever want to part with it or trade for something. :D

    Also, curious to know if there was any other 60's rock LPs there that could have been from this donation. The weird looking off-the-wall stuff you've probably never heard of. That's what I'm into.

    Love that tent! You scored big on that one! Looks like you had a great trip, too!

    Holy shit! I think this is a first for the thread!
    Paul Smith London is cool. I usually pick those up if the price is right. Super nice pick up on the DvN! The Nortre Dame isn't the University of Notre Dame. I'm pretty sure it means Notre Dame de Paris. [​IMG]
