    Hey guys, any idea on the age of this Abercrombie & Fitch (I know, I know, cut me some slack) label? Looked old, wondered if it was something decent.

    This fabric is incredible. This was a Ferragamo right? I found a similar one in 52, so wish it was my size.

    I found the skeetiest non-skeet that I've seen yet. Loud prints are certainly nothing new... 1970s Arrow shirt.

    Never seen it before but I'm going to guess early 90s. I'm almost certain it's post (second) buy-out.

    Yes it is and it's my size but the darn chest is a little too big plus sleeves are a little short (following @SpooPoker mantra "zero tolerance for almost ")

    To be honest I don't know if they're all black label/tag but that logo is BR monogram and a lot of ppl really like them. Before I discovered this site and other sites that really teach and emphasize investing in great instead of good/OK clothing, I use to love their stuff. I think sometimes in this game its not always about homeruns (which are the best "Kiton"), sometimes it's about the base hits (ties), I'd say sometimes these can actually be doubles(Jcrew Ludlow), which I'll take any day.

    ...went back and saw all the proxy requests for BBBF suits...alas, there were only 2 suits when I got there, and they're headed out the door soon. Probably keep 1 of the sweaters for self (not sure if it fits yet). Sorry I couldn't hook anyone up. Seriously - I have a Marshall's / TJX credit card with a $4500 limit and if there had been as many as I imagined in my mind (I was thinking rows and rows off BBBF suits for $129), I would have bought them all and been happy to do some reasonable hook-up's and flip the rest. Didn't pan out as hoped, though certainly not complaining with what I did end up with. Did the math: over $8k worth of BB goods, for $845.

    If these are in good condition, with no fraying at the cuffs, or horizontal lines from wearing rolled up. these would net at least $80. conservatively speaking.
    +1. "Blue collar" Swag is always in fashion in Japan. particularly with guys who work Hard labor jobs, looking to wear something versatile to work, or even out after work. Friends of mine regularly wear clean overalls to bars and family events, or just chillin at home. i can attest to their popularity.

    Morning crew, Austria reporting. It's both my wife's and my birthday today, but I'm looking at a long work day, unfortunately. I will, however, attempt to track down the suits to 2 Brioni vests that I recently found. Here's to hoping that the thrift gods smile upon me today!:satisfied:
