    Anyway, back to clothes. Picked this up at lunch today.

    I'm not too familiar with Daniel Cremieux but this is pretty nice. Probably bayward bound unless anyone really wants it. Tagged EU52 but more like a slim 40 I'd say - haven't measured it yet.

    Rochester guy had work and homework..
    Pray tell, what store is going out of business that I haven't heard about? Hannys is closed and they didn't sell levis.
    Sounds like some nice things, glad you found them. I'm trying to be more picky with what I buy, I seem to have a stock pile of stuff to sell that never gets listed.

    Very nice... a little pricey for my thrift tastes, but nice. If you intend to sell it on eBay, I suggest you infuse the cotton with some type of oceanic scent. Apparently you can get negative feedback if your sea island cotton does not smell like the sea.

    Oh I don't disagree with you on the price, what I didn't mention was that green tags were $1.50! I figured I'd throw it out to you all before putting it on the Bay.

    Cremieux is a store brand for the Dillards department store. For a long time they were no better than other department store brands - Hunting Horn, Charter Club, Tasso Elba, etc. But, IMO, they've been upscaling their production quality quite a bit over the last few years and are starting to look pretty decent for personal use, even if there's not much resale value. Their upper-level line of suits is made by Isaia (or the same manufacturer as Isaia).

    Alco. I'd call them first though to see what they have left if anyone has one in their area and wants to flip lower end stuff. I'm not sure the one I went to usually carried Levis. The 2nd store I called said they hadn't carried them in years.

    I hear you on trying to be picky. I should have left half that stuff. I had 30 minutes there so was working too quick. The Air Force field jacket and The Golden Bear jacket should have been the only things I kept. [​IMG]

    Hey all, I know we all like spoilers in here, just how do you compose one of those? I am assuming these are to keep the pages from being way way too long with photos, correct?

    This nice "Eternal" lightweight sweater. which is perfect for under a denim chore coat on brisk days.

    Some MINT Reebok Classics for Vader junior. [​IMG]

    Lastly, purchase on this is waiting on research towards profitability. as this item would be headed straight for the 'bay. or private collector trade.

    I kept trying Barkley and completely overlooked Berkley.

    Seriously, though, thank you. Hit me up if you need anything. :cheers:

    Highlight the stuff you want inside the spoiler, then click the black quote-bubble icon at the top of the editor.

    OR

    Put [noparse]
    and
    [/noparse] before and after the stuff you want to spoiler.

    2 weeks...not even gonna attempt to catch up. Some epic hauls, post pics in a little... but 14 bucks half price day for Isaia Suit? Yes, please. By far the best deal I have ever gotten on a thrift item, shit is priced that high here. Black 3 piece Giorgio Armani Classico for 250 at a store I was at yesterday.... shit is ridiculous
