    Not a bad day yesterday.

    (Please excuse horrible iPhone photos. I had a dose of the shakes yesterday; can't help it).

    Popped a cherry. This is EU52R. I could make it work for me, but it is a little wide and loose, so I might sell it.

    Shirts. Borrelli is a ladies' EU48. I have no idea how that translates, but it looks pretty petite. The Alain Fig is my size.

    Mastai Ferretti jeans size 36. This was a case of my eyes being smaller than my stomach. :)

    Ties L-R: Canali, Zegna, Charvet, Caruso, Breuer x 2

    As always I was on the lookout for perfumes for me and the local BNers. Not bad. The little mini at the front is a Lancome that was inside the Guerlain mini box along with the Guerlain, so a surprise there. The rest are keepers for the wife and me.

    Please don't tell me you thrifted that. Those are awesome, but most on ebay are fakes. I looked into it quite a bit and I even showed one to the manager at hermes in nyc resulting in a long conversation about them, so I can spot the fakes pretty quickly. If its real though then it's a biggie!

    Jeeeeeeeez. I was just looking at these on the bay last night because I really want one. I would love a quick "spot the fake" rundown on these.

    You are going to run into trouble if you don't learn to do this, no matter how depressing it is. People here have a short fuse when it comes to asking for values. Although if you are a long time lurker you would have already seen a few rants about noobs not searching for themselves. Just a heads up!

    You can select NWT only in the search. Also choose sold, not completed, because completed includes any auction that ended for any reason.

    I had a HF Bespoke LP orphan, navy that was brass buttons away from a staple navy blazer, that took a month to sell and finally went for like $10. It wasnt NWT, but was otherwise perfect. If it fits in the shoulders in the chest, I'd keep it and get it tailored. If not, sell it (although I think $100 might even be a pipe dream).

    The other stuff is nice, keep up the good work!

    I would suggest looking at all the completed auctions. For example, if you checked an item against sold only and saw that there were three similar that went for a good price, you would probably kop. But then checking all completed, there could be tons more in the same price range that didn't sell, making the few good closing aberrations. I usually want to see about half of the items in my desired price range selling before I'll kop something, so I won't have to relist too many times.

    Some shoutouts that are long overdue:

    @eazye for the beyond awesome shearling coat. My girlfriend isn't too psyched, but I'm sure it'll save us both when nuclear winter strikes.
    @SpooPoker for the great Chippewas. They served me well in the woods.
    And @SPECIALK2K12, @Ian Erickson and @MZhammer for all the awesome stuff that I'm loving very much.
