    Only with the tapatalk app I think, or you can upload them to imgur and then paste in the link, but it's a lot of work.

    $150? With full disclosure/pictures on the auction? OK, let's play.

    Let's put the over/under at $140 (not that Spoo doesn't know his stuff but sheesh--those shoes are seriously shot) and start taking bets.

    Can't help on the authenticity but buttoning would suggest men's.

    Of course with full disclosure. I really think I can. (chugga chugga choo choo)

    OP has messaged me and is going to let his auction run, and if they dont sell, Ill get a shot at it.

    Before anyone chimes in, we can either take this to the eBay thread or my thread for further commentary, SVP.

    Of the few pieces I've seen, they've all been stitched on only at the corners without that top and bottom detail

    Hey, I'm having trouble getting my posts to post. Here's my first post.
    And here's my second post.
    Recent finds:

    Brooks Brothers (Vintage?) - 44 Regular
    Hill and Archer Harris Tweed - 46 Regular
    (Is all Harris Tweed worth picking up or just some kinds?)
    NWT Calvin Klein Shirt - Medium Slim Fit
    [​IMG]


    I also found a Zegna shirt with MOP buttons. Do you pick up all Zegna shirts or just certain kinds? Size Large.
    [​IMG]



    Navy Zegna Suit - Jacket measures to about a 38.
    Pants tag is removed, but seems like a 34x32. (There's shine on the suit, not stains)
    [​IMG]

    Now here's the fun bit. The pants' back pockets are missing one button, but it could be replaced with the jacket's interior pocket button. I also noticed a small rip by the top of the jacket (not all the way through) after I got it home.

    For less than $4, I decided to pay. What would you have done? Thanks for the input.

    No, secondary education actually. I see educating children as cultivating a "tree of life." :)

    Oh OK. That's what my fiancee is and I'm actually teaching a 9th grade biology class right now at a private school but I'm still in college as well. Weird I know... I was just wondering because (nerd alert) the cerebellar white matter is called the arbor vitae.

    For once I agree with Spoo on Versace. That's totally wearable. Nice find.

    Edit: BTW, Spoo, that's almost exactly how I picture you.

    And here I thought you were just an avid gardener
